The Marriage Trap

the Marriage TrapMichael Conte needs a wife quickly to satisfy the family tradition so his sister is able to marry. He wasn’t sure that Maggie was the right choice but she was his only option. As they pretend he finds that the feelings he had been hiding were starting to come out.

Maggie Ryan was propositioned by Michael to be a fake bride for one week. She agrees as long as he stays away from her married best friend. As she spends time with Michael and his family she realizes she made a mistake because they were making her feel things for him.

The Marriage Trap is the second book to the series. Once again I really loved this book. There was more to these characters than I had believed, especially Maggie.

Maggie was a skilled photographer but she kept a wall up and did not get close to anyone. She made the rules and was always the one in control. You find out more about Maggie and her past is pretty tragic. She is not just the rich girl. I hated what happened to her in high school which shaped her to the woman she was today. Though she will have a chance to heal thanks to Michael, of course that comes a little later in the book. Michael was the man of the family since his father passed away and took it seriously, possibly a little too much. Although Michael is a good man with a good heart and was just trying his best.

The chemistry between Maggie and Michael is electric but they keep it at a distance because both of them are afraid to take that step. Though within the trip that will change but fears will still be there especially with Maggie who is terrified to take the next step. It also didn’t help that Maggie was sure Michael wanted her best friend Alexa but that will get sorted out eventually. The ending was sweet and you will want to cheer for Maggie and Michael as they get that happy ending.

I am going to have to try more from this author.

The Marriage Bargain

The Marriage BargainAlexa Maria McKenzie decided to try her luck and cast a love spell to find the perfect man especially one that has cash to spend. Alexa needed money to save her parents home and will be shocked when the perfect person for the job was her best friends brother.

Nicholas Ryan was a billionaire and was about to get what he wanted but there was a problem. He had to marry to get the company he needed. With the help of his sister he will find a wife, her best friend.

The Marriage Bargain is the first book to the series Marriage to a Billionaire by Jennifer Probst. I really liked the first book. This was a shorter novel then the other two I have read from the series but it was still a very entertaining novel to read. There were characters opposites of each other, fights, jealousy, hot sex and finally love even though it almost comes at the end and almost always too late.

Alexa was a kind and generous woman. She was determined to do things her way and on her own. I liked her love of animals and her drive to help out animals that need that extra help. Then there was Nicholas who did not want any attachments. He wanted to work but the “will” from his uncle stopped those plans. He was a good man but he was cold at times which was from his upbringing. Nicholas will start to change thanks to his wife, that is eventually. I thought that Jennifer Probst wrote a perfect ending to the book that will make you smile and know that this couple will have a chance.

I liked the list of requirements for Alexa and Nicholas and their potential spouses which were the exact opposites and yet it will work. That is when they were not fighting which was almost comical at times. Their fiery natures worked well for their attention to each other. When they had the chance the passion which surrounded them flared to life especially when they were arguing.

I am reading the second book to the series next which will complete the series for me as I have already read the third and fourth book.

The Marriage Merger

The Marriage MergerJulietta Conte was determined in her job and wanted to succeed and had no time for distractions like Sawyer Wells or any other man. With every relationship she tried it just ended with her frustrated and hurt but with Sawyer he will draw out something inside of her that will make her into a new woman.

Sawyer Wells had a hard life that should have broken a person but he was determined to survive. Sawyer will do well in business but shields himself off from attachments that would have him caring. He will fail when it comes to Juliette who was just supposed to be an affair but he will find more with this woman.

The Marriage Merger is the fourth book to Marriage to a Billionaire series by Jennifer Probst. I liked this book a lot. It was a quick read as the story flowed from each scene and I couldn’t wait to find out how they were going to make it work, and find out about their story.

This was a book about control and who has the power and it was steamy with Juliette and Sawyer. They were not enemies but at odds because of their power struggle. I liked Juliette and Sawyer for their strong character and for their past. Sawyer had a hard life full of violence as his foster father was not a good man. You felt for Sawyer as the story unfolds but amazed that he survived all of it. I will say I was happy that in the previous book nothing happened with Carina, Juliette’s sister, and that it didn’t put a rift between Juliette and Sawyer. Now Juliette might not have had such a traumatic upbringing but getting to the top has been a hard path. The reasons for Juliette’s control in her life comes clear and feel bad for her but then cheer for her when she finds that possible release for her control, it will make her understand herself.

I will have to come back and read the first two books from Jennifer Probst so I can finish off this series.

The Marriage Mistake

The Marriage MistakeCarina Conte has loved Max since she could remember but she had to forget about him and move on. It was easy until her brother decided that she should shadow Max as she started into the family business.

Max Grey knew that Carina was off limits as she was his best friends sister so he will keep those thoughts to himself. That is until he finds himself too captivated with Carina that he can’t keep his hands to himself and with one scorching night together all things will change.

The Marriage Mistake is the third book to the series Marriage to a Billionaire by Jennifer Probst. As this was the first book I had no expectations other than hoping I would like the book and I thought Jennifer Probst wrote an interesting story that captured my attention. I wanted to know more about these other characters and what happened in their stories.

This book falls to family dynamic as this is a very Italian family and I liked them. They were a little old fashioned but that was how these characters were written to be. I liked that Carina was breaking free of the mold and trying to become the woman she was meant to be, instead of what her family expected. Max is a man with a past he doesn’t want repeated. He doesn’t feel like he is good enough for Carina and keeps all relationships very easy. Chemistry for these characters is not a problem but it only comes alive when they are angry or at least that is how it starts and it will be scorching between them.

What was interesting was this book of spells that Carina used and this book was used before in the previous books for the two main woman who were looking for the right man. I liked the idea of the spells but I definitely wouldn’t say this was supernatural, it just had a small supernatural spin to it. From how the book ended with the women commenting on the book Julietta will find herself reciting a spell like the others. I will find out soon as I am reading Julietta’s story next.
