My Review : The Marriage Bargain

A marriage in name only...

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

Billionaire 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…

Favorite Spoiler

She narrowed her eyes. “I see you’re the same overbearing bully who teased me about my chest size. Some things don’t change.” 
He focused his attention on the dip of her dress. “I guess you’re right. Some things remain the same. Others keep expanding.” 
Her breath caught at the jab, but she surprised him when she smiled. “And other things remain small.” Her pointed stare settled directly on the bulge in the center of his pants.

Do you have any Black Eye Peas?"
He looked puzzled by the question.
"To eat?"
She held back a groan.
 "I'll even settle for some of the old classics Sinatra, Bennett, Martin."

I love this book, it was sweet,funny,romantic. It makes me laugh and fall in love at the same time. It is well written from beginning until end,no boring moments,characters are likable. I love how Alexa value her family,she is ready to sacrifice her happiness for the future of her family.

Highly Recommended
