What Price Paradise – Katherine Allred

This book contains some mild sex scenes but they not really descriptive.



All his life Tate McCullom has been taught to be responsible, and he is the very model of what a respectable man should be. Until the night he gets drunk and sleeps with a woman he barely knows.

Now, six weeks later, she’s pregnant, alone, and broke. Once again, Tate must take responsibility for his actions, and makes plans to marry his child’s mother. There’s only one problem…he has to tell his fiancée.

Abby Grayson hasn’t had an easy life. As the daughter of the town whore, people either avoid her or think she’s like her mother. For Abby, it’s a struggle just to fill her belly and keep a roof over her head.

Loneliness and a secret yearning for this man she thought she’d never have led her to spend the night with Tate. But the last thing she needs is a baby when she can barely take care of herself. Desperate, but too proud to ask for help, she finally agrees to accept a job from Tate – the job of being his wife. Now she has almost everything she’s ever dreamed of.

Unfortunately, only one thing will gain her Tate’s love – his realization that the night he spent with her was no drunken accident. It was a last-ditch attempt to win the woman he really wanted.

Rating: 5 stars

I love this book so much. It breaks my heart every time I read it. This is a book I would recommend. Honestly if you have a kindle go purchase it. It’s £0.37 on Amazon at the moment. Click here for more information.

The synopsis of the book really sums up what it’s about. I do not want to try to write too much about this book as I do not want to spoil it. I will try to be very vague in my review. This book is about Tate who takes his responsibility very seriously, when he breaks up with his fiancee he gets drunk and sleeps with Abby. Six weeks later Abby is pregnant, though she tries to hide this from Tate as he is back together with his fiancee he finds out and sees how Abby has been struggling to get by and decides to marry her. I do think Tate is sweet and caring but he did at points get on my nerves, he made up for this by the end of the book, but I couldn’t understand his pining for his ex-fiancee Diana. I know you’ll be thinking what are you talking about Sumaira if they were engaged ofcourse he’s going to miss/pine after her but read the book and you’ll understand my meaning. Abby is more accepting of the situation and ready to move form in comparison to Tate. Tate might say the words but as I just mentioned I think he did not believe them himself.

“So what if my life isn’t turning out exactly the way I’d planned? It’s not ruined, it’ll just be different.”

The supporting characters are interesting and they add to the story. Ugh I really did not like Diane at all. I liked Tate’s brother Buddy. He was a sweet and funny character. I loved how he also supported Abby and of her relationship with Tate. I loved that buddy use to have a laugh at Tate with his friend Joe. However the character I love best is Abby, she is one of my favorite characters ever. My heart actually broke so many times for her. I really wanted to give her a big hug and help her with her troubles. Katherine has done an amazing job by creating this character and story, you get emotionally involved in this book. The writing in this book is amazing as well, you get hooked on the storyline and want to read the book in one sitting. The dialogues and descriptions in the book are well written.

The scene in the Cafe really showed how confident Abby has become through the story and how she has grown form the shy timid character Katherine introduced us to in Chapter 1. I really enjoyed the character growth and I was happy with the way the book ended, though I had my doubts at one point where I wanted to punch Tate.

Read this book!

Happy Reading!
