The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

Spoiler Free Review -Quick Review
4 Hearts out of 5
Genre: Contemporary romance

Alexa squirmed in her seat as the silence in the BMW stretched between them. Her husband-to-be seemed just as uncomfortable, he chose to focus his energy into his MP3 player. She tried not to wince when he settled on Mozart. He actually enjoyed music without words. She almost shuddered again when she though of sharing a residence with him. For. An. Entire. Year.

"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."
He remained silent.

"Eagles? Beatles? Just yell if any of these names sound familiar."

 His shoulder stiffen.
"I know who they are. Would you prefer Beethoven?"
~Alexa and Nick

Hahahahahahaha! This guy?! These two had me bent over laughing at their banter and their antics.

Nicholas Ryan is a billionaire looking for a wife so that he can fulfill a requirement made in his uncle's will. By doing so he can have complete control of the family business. The will states he must be married for at least a year. No problem right? Thing is he does not want to marry his supermodel girlfriend Gabriela, he senses that she is falling in love with him. And he does not do long term. So, she is off the list without even knowing why. And she is none to happy about it either.

Alexa McKenzie needs one-hundred and fifty thousand dollars cash in order to save her parents home. And she needs the money NOW. Nick may not be at the top of her list when it comes to what she is looking for in a man. But his bank account is.

These two come together making a deal that should settle both of their problems. And it does. They just never expected to fall in love in the process.

This was a fun quick read filled with plenty of witty banter as well as some steamy love sessions. I totally recommend this book to romance lovers who enjoy a nice balance of steam and laughter. The hero has some mommy and daddy issues but the author chose not to delve in too deep. Making this a light fun read.

Check it out!!
