Pros

  • Charming, familiar story
  • A quick read

Cons

  • The dialog was a little awkward
  • Characters lacked any real depth

The Marriage Bargain is the first book in the Marriage to a Billionaire series by Jennifer Probst.

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.

I’m going to confess, I’m a sucker for a sappy, cheesy, romantic comedy. I know, I know. I can’t help it.

If you are like me then you will probably like The Marriage Bargain. It’s the same predictable story that you’ve no doubt read a zillion times before but still Jennifer Probst found a way to make the story charming.

It’s not a perfect book by any means. The story-line was predictable and the character’s dialog was awkward at best.
