Marriage to a Billionaire Series by Jennifer Probst

Marriage to a Billionaire is a series by author Jennifer Probst. Her books are more of a light read and quite interesting. Its purely romance themed and has nothing to do with the Paranormal Romance that I love reading. This is more of a light read and whenever you feel like you need a change, this is a book you might want to pick up. One of the reason I like her books is because she takes almost classic subjects and plots and makes it into a modern storyline. The series includes 4 books, all revolves around an Italian family, the "Conte's". 

This is my review of the first book in the series :- The Marriage Bargain

The book looks like this:-



The synopsis:-

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…



What I think of the book:-

Nick and Alexa enter into a marriage of convenience to please their families, in the process they fall in love. Yes, there is an element of predictability in the story but the way JP (author) delivered the story made it sweet and likeable. You can almost forgive the predictability because of the elements of humor that the author added in the book. 

The book/story is quite short, for an avid reader, the book might just take one day at most to finish. 

All in all, this is a feel good book and a healthy dose of romance! Highly recommended for people who are looking for a light and relaxed read.
