  5. Almost a DNF I came soooooo close to chucking this one, but I skimmed the last third of the book as I did want to finish Overall this was a very underwhelming read I love a great contemporary romance with steam, but this was too formulaic and lacked a decent story to keep me interested The plot was just downright boring I do like a marriage of convenience plot, but this was just too hokey as they keep going back and forth on their desires for sex The heroine s need to lie was baffling, and the h [...]

  6. All romance lovers out there, make way for the superbly talented Jennifer Probst who has succeeded in earning herself an auto buy spot on my already long list of authors whose books I wouldn t hesitate to purchase Not only do I immediately purchase Jennifer Probst s books, but I stop everything I am reading at the moment and plunge into her books with an enthusiasm that tells a story of its own.27 year old Alexandria Maria McKenzie Alexa is in a bit of a dilemma She needs a husband, preferably w [...]

  12. 4 StarsThis was most definitely an enjoyable and fun read I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times at the banter between Alexa and Nick, the two main characters.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 rem [...]

  15. This was a lovely read Just what I needed, something light, funny and romantic.Alexa needs money to save her family house, and Nick needs a wife so he could inherit his family business The funny thing is, she makes a list what her perfect husband should be like, and he does the same for his to be wife XD Needless to say they are complete opposites, the only thing they actually agree on is that they need to marry each other And so the fun starts XD They are attracted to each other, but they fight [...]

  17. I liked the book, the way it was written how these two faced of against each other and were opposites They entered into a marriage of convenience, the heroine because she needed money for her family, the hero because his uncle s will stipulated it The heroine believes in love, family, animals, kids, the hero doesn t They both agree to be celibate for a year but it is tough and there are moments when they almost fall for the attraction between them the poor hero even let s his ex girlfriend kiss [...]

  19. I actually enjoyed reading this book because it was such an easy read But full disclaimer ahead I did not appreciate the storyline AT ALL, and my review will devolve into my problems with creativity in the romance market and the hero that I didn t like at all Read on if you re prepared for the snark.I ve read this wangst before Emotionally Stunted Super Douche enters a marriage of convenience with teh evulz womanz, falls in insta lust, gets emotionally involved, and then loses his damn mind Duri [...]

  20. 2,5 starsThe reason for reading Wanted something short and light.Worth the experince Eh Wont continue the series.Two stars given for It wasnt horrible It was just meh I liked the beginning.Half star given for Not introducing too many characters for the rest of the series even though I can see the second book s premise coming from miles away thanks to the way two characters were introduced and of course the next book s hero had to be in love with this book s heroine rolls eyes Stars dropped becau [...]

  21. The Marriage Bargain is a romance novel by Jennifer Probst I was in BN one day and looking through their read in store selections and found this title I like the occasional romance and decided to give it a try with the one hour read for free that BN offers for their Nook customers I instantly fell in love with this story I hadn t even read for the full hour yet, was only 20 pages in before I decided to purchase it and continue on This is the typical romance novel where the motivation for coming [...]

  23. This book right here is the reason why I m so willing to give small press and selfpublishing a chance This book right here is the reason why I so patiently roam and , looking for new and undiscovered authors, why I put up with a lot of really bad books in the hopes they will lead me to something like this.The Marriage Bargain is a good romance book The kind that is hard to find these days Most books that hide under the Romance banner are erotica books in disguise So finding something that is wha [...]

  24. I read The Marriage Bargain in one day because I got sucked in and could not put it down The characters were so well drawn and interesting, the chemistry and sexual tension between them crackled off the page, and Probst made me cheer for them to finally admit their feelings and get together The book was also laugh out loud funny in a few places, I m thinking of the discovery of the hidden dogs scene in particular But the opposites attract theme provided a lot of these moments Just an all around [...]

  25. A quick, easy read This book didn t rock my world but it was pleasant and undemanding A nice blend of tension, angst, wit, romance, love and steam.Hell, at this rate she d end up in the mental institution by the end of the year Cause Celibacy.There weren t any rip your heart out moments for me but I loved the building sexual tension and the avoiding of the inevitable I felt that the book would have benefited from a little depth to take it up a notch, from good to great, and the characters were [...]

This is a fun, sexy read that I enjoyed3.5 starsJennifer Probst took the Marriage of Convenience plot and with her witty dialog, the strong build of sexual tension and finally those hot love scenes and made this a winner Nick Ryan doesn t believe in marriage stating the dream of forever is a fairy tale I loved watching Alexa break through his self made barriers and bring this hot blooded, sexy man to his knees He has lived a life of not feeling wanted and clearly is a lost, tortured soul His lif [...]

  28. I made it almost all the way through this before my loathing for Nick finally overcame my desire to see Alexa happy And it s not so much that Nick is a jerk and completely unworthy of her attention though he is those things It s that he doesn t make any sense in a tropey way that I wish authors would stop trying to make work Let me lay it out in explicit terms If a guy prides himself on rational analysis, then he can t possibly believe the truly stupid propositions that love doesn t exist and th [...]

  29. Sin lugar a dudas, el ep logo casi acaba conmigo xDD view spoiler Alexa rompe aguas, y a Nick le da un ataque de p nico y termina yendo al hospital sin ella en el coche.JAJAJAJAJAJAJA hide spoiler

  30. The Marriage Bargain is the first installment in Jennifer Probst s adult contemporary romance series titled Marriage to a Billionaire I found this little 6 hour audiobook at my local library and decided it would make for some short and sweet entertainment during an afternoon of paperwork It did just that The Marriage Bargain is pretty superficial, featuring the tried and true story of two people agreeing to marry on paper for business, family, etc while keeping their private interactions non emo [...]
