Book Review: Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

The Marriage Bargain

A Marriage in name only…

To save her family home, impulsive book store owner Alexa Maria McKenzie casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring her best friend’s older brother-the powerful man who once shattered her heart.

Billionare Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.

A marriage in name only with certain rules. Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?

Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans

Meet The Author:

Jennifer Probst wrote her first book at twelve years old. She bound it in a folder, read it to her classmates, and hasn’t stopped writing since. She makes her home in Upstate New York with the whole crew who keep her active, stressed, joyous, and sad her house will never be truly clean.

My Thoughts*

I absolutely FLEW through this book. I couldn’t seem to put it down. The characters are so enticing and just make you love them. This isn’t your everyday romance novel. This brings laughter AND tears, aggravation and excitement.

As I am reading through this book, I actually felt like I was reading the life of a friend- I totally got lost in the characters, especially the main 2. The words and characters just wrap themselves around you and put a spell on you..

I couldn’t break away from this book. I took it with me to pick my son up from school and sat in the car reading it. Usually it takes forever.. this time I was actually thinking to myself “My god that was fast” as the traffic started moving forward.

This is an absolute MUST read, even if you don’t read romance novels. This isn’t some kissy face book that can’t hold a candle to real life. This is all about REAL and I believed every single bit of it. Yes, it does include romance, but the fiery love romance- not some muscled up man loving a raven haired beauty that he spotted from afar..

I just don’t usually dig romance novels, but I’m telling you—I LOVED this book!
