  1. This was OK Good I liked it.But it didn t rock my world This is the kind of book that you can read anytime, a sweet romance and an interesting plotSo my rec goes to those who like their dose of happy and mushyMe, I have a problem with too much mushyness, so that s why the three starsThe story is pretty simple the hero and the heroine fake the marriage because of some family problems, the hero and the heroine marry for real and fall in love, the hero and the heroine have a fight and get separated [...]

  2. There is a rumor going around thatThe Marriage Trapwill follow another story with different characters cough Maggie cough I hope not I have grown too attached to Nick and Alexa.

  4. You know, this trope is so common, yet Jennifer Probst still made it a fun and entertaining read.Last book, it was mentioned that Maggie Ryan went on a blind date with Michael Conte but something happened and there was tension between the two It was uncomfortable and didn t seem that is was a good match Until book 2.Maggie was a nice character who had a defense built around her heart to keep everyone out Michael Conte seemed like a bossy jerk but it quickly became clear that he was the opposite [...]

  5. Of course love spells didn t work She may as well look up hero in the dictionary and wish for Superman to appear outside her condo window Ah Maggie, how happy I was to see you and the good Count again I was so excited to start this book The Marriage Bargain is one book that always stays hidden in my heart to pull out when I need comfort and what better comfort comes from that book than hiding dogs and the sexy scene that follows.I have waited to see what happened on the blind date between Michae [...]

  7. Let me be clear, la mia tigrotta I m taking you to bed I m going to strip off your clothes, bury myself inside you, and make you come so many times the only word from your lips will be my name, begging me to do it all over again There are some romance authors that get it right every single time and Jennifer Probst is one of those authors Her delicious stories tantalise your senses, they keep you in a constant state of arousal and cheeriness, the only dilemma in your mind being wine or chocolate [...]

  8. Questo romanzo mi ha fatto profondamente incazzare Cos , senza tanti giri di parole E ci che mi ha fatto incazzare non il fatto che sia incentrato su un usanza vecchia e profondamente ingiusta Ma cominciamo dall inizio Michael Conte deve sposarsi perch mammina vuole o meglio, pretende che il primogenito uccel di bosco si sposi prima della sorella minore innamoratissima e isterica.Ora, a quanto mi si dice, questa usanza esiste davvero in alcune famiglie italiane per il bene dei loro figli, spero [...]

  9. 2.5 starsMeh shrugs a shoulder IF you can get past the ridiculous and overdone premise of marrying to fool my family you can forget that this SAME premise was used in book 1 of the series, not with strangers, mind you, but with the brother and friend of this book s MC s you can get past Maggie s utterly annoying walls she puts up which makes me not give 2 cents about what happens to herTHEN this book has some enjoyable moments you can get fired up w some hot steamy parts it turns out to be not a [...]

  10. You will serve your husband dinner tonight by your own handt because you are beneath hime you are UmmI will allow my husband to be than me.He can be the one making and serving dinner for the rest of our marriage.This is one of those books where I get attached to the supporting characters than the principal ones.I absolutely loved Mama Conte she s one of those fierce, hard working women who care about her family and made sure everyone was happy.I loved some of her advice too.Helped me to see s [...]

  11. Como j tinha lido o 1 livro, j sabia que estes dois tinham tido um encontro anteriormente mas quem n o leu o 1 certamente ir perceber o contexto em que este romance acontece Embora sejam livros singulares todos com um casal diferente, a autora interliga muito as personagens portanto eu aconselho mesmo a ler tudo por ordem Mas regressando ao livro, acho que a autora conseguiu desenvolver melhor a Maggie do que a Alexa obvio que j n o me lembro de tudo do 1 livro mas fiquei com a impress o que a M [...]

  12. Reviewd by HarlequinJunkie Romance ReviewsThe Marriage Trap by Jennifer Probst is passionately sexy and emotionally compelling Mia A It sure did surpass my expectations.I won t reiterate the plot I think the synopsis does a fine job of that I loved the characters in this book, Michael is the kind of guy dreams are made of Handsome, loyal, family oriented, compassionate a guy with a big heart Maggie is my kinda girl strong, independent, feisty and sassy to the end Together Michael and Maggie were [...]

  13. I really enjoyed Jennifer Probst first book but I think I like The Marriage Trap a bit better Maggie Ryan is the photographer sister of Nick the hero in the previous book , who is smart, successful and independent and great at hiding her feelings after the lonely childhood she and Nick had Her best friend and brother s wife set her up with Michael Conte a year back and she felt a spark but was rejected so she convinced herself that Michael was in love with Alexa.The reason I liked this book was [...]

  14. 3.5 stars This is the story of Nick s sister, Maggie, and Alexa s friend from Italy, Michael Michael s family is very traditional and his sister wants to get married but can t until Michael is married Since Maggie is already planning on going to Italy for a photo shoot, Michael decides to see if he can rope her in as his fake wife and take her to meet his family.Okay, I m kind of torn about this storyme parts were very sweet but others were too predictable and repetitive I liked both Michael and [...]

  15. Let me just start off by saying that I loooooved the first book of this series The Marriage Bargain Ms Probst did a GREAT job at creating such a nice and hawt hot buildup between the two characters Nick Alexa , that I was bummed when the book ended That of course led me to want to read the 2nd volume, just hoping for a little of a glimpse into their story again or atleast to recapture that feeling that I felt Deep breath in, now exhale Ahhhhh Ok enough of that, moving on I was really hoping to [...]

  16. There is really a bad problem when an Italian woman like me is reading a book where one of the characters is depicted as Italian and instead he speaks a sort of Spanish American Italian Italians don t say Dios, Spanish do it.Italians don t say bambinos, Americans do it maybe, I don t know for sure.Italians don t say mia a really I don t understand if this a product of google translator.So, the bad use of Italian words really spoil this book for me, sorry

  17. 3 3.5 starI don t know what to say.Well This was a good read Nothing special, but not that bad.I liked Maggie but the conflicts that she had with herself was really on my nerve.Contrary to my expectation Michael was wiser and easy going He accept his flaws and start to change them.

  18. I loved Maggie and Michael from the marriage bargain So happy they got their own story They had awesome chemistry, loved Michaels family and their interactions with Maggie Loved the sneak peak for the third book Can t wait

  19. Un libro hermoso,f cil de leer.Maggie es encantadora con su sarcasmo y su manera tan comica de ser y Michaelque hombre Una historia sencilla,pero muy bien contada y aunque cualquiera que la lea puede pensar que es demaciado predecible,para mi tambi n lo es.Igual sigue siendo una historia que me gusta,tal vez por lo mismo,por su sencillez y pocas complicacioneso le por ah una Harlequin con m s p ginas,pero a mi las Harlequin me encantan.

  20. Nothing not to love about this easy to read romance Heartwarming to the end with characters you can t help but fall for Not epic but certainly one to consider a good all rounder.

  21. 3 5 estrellas Libro que se lee en un suspiro Michael es un amor, ya me lo dejo claro en el primer libro Estoy deseando leer los siguientes, las hermanas del conde prometen ser guerreras.

  22. Se non posso sposarmi tutta colpa tua Perch mia La mamma ha detto che potr sposarmi solo dopo che ti sarai sposato tu Non ti ricordi Era una vecchia tradizione a cui pap teneva tantissimo Ma ragazzi siamo nel 2013 Come pu risultare credibile che il protagonista di un libro si disperi a trovare una donna disposto a sposarlo per finta solo per agevolare la sorella Mandare affanculo la madre O meglio ancora, inventarsi una cavolo di giustificazione migliore Ma parlami del classico visto scaduto, da [...]

  23. This is the second book of Probst s I have read and just like after reading the first novel I was asking myself the same question How does she do it How does she take a typical cliche the pretend marriage and then falling in love with your fake husband wife thing has been done a thousand times and make me enjoy it I usually hate typical writing After a few days of thinking I have come to one conclusion The characters Jennifer may use an old idea and plot line, however its the characters, along w [...]

  24. This was a sweet little story of frenemies to lovers Maggie and Michael were both introduced in the first book in the series The Marriage Bargain Maggie is Nick s sister and Alexa s best friend, while Michael is the Italian billionaire working with Nick who befriends Alexa I liked him from back then, so this book was an easy sell for me They went on a blind date in the first book, but nothing really came of it or so we thought , but with them now entering into a pretend marriage and spending the [...]

  25. I love love love this bookkkkkkk I know the idea is clich , but I still love it like hell And it took place in Milan, Italy, the place I ve been dreaming of visiting my whole life Books that make me ditch my work and secretly read them during working hours totally deserve 5 stars DThere is only one thing I m concerned with the Vietnamese translated version of this book I don t know why but they censored all the steamy and beautiful sex scenes I have never read a romance book published by Bach Vi [...]

  27. It s not a bad book but i couldn t really get into it because1 The reason for the marriage felt far fetched than the reason in the first book of the trilogy.2 I felt the rhythm of the book wasn t very fluid After every action there was an explanation about maggie s feelings or michael s I would have liked it if the background and explanations were inserted in the narrative fluidly or maybe be subtle about it Sometimes the readers don t need to be told every single feeling the character is fe [...]
