Book Review: The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

The Marriage BargainThe Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was one HOT read. The author had the heroine and hero sizzling.

It's the perfect marriage of convenience story, where they fall in love in the end. I just love this plot, with relationships where they think they are acting on a lie - it's my favourite kind, and this story echoed ideas I've put in my own novel - although I fear that Jennifer Probst has written it better than me!

If I had one nit pick, I felt that sometimes what the characters were wearing was over described at times. But it's romance, so I accepted it. It's not that annoying that you won't enjoy the book. 

But I love Nick for being this sexy, strong man, determined not to let Alexa get to him. And fail.

There is some great passion and sexual tension in this book. Loved it. Hated putting it down.

If only men like Nick existed in the real world. *sigh*

I bought this book after reading a blog post that Rachel Lyndhurst shared. A very inspirational tale by Jennifer Probst. I recommend all aspiring writers to read. Can't promise we'll all be that lucky, but it's a nice carrot to wave in front of us.
