The Marriage Bargain (Marriage to a Billionaire #1) by Jennifer Probst



The Marriage Bargain
(Marriage to a Billionaire #1)
by Jennifer Probst
(Kindle, Fiction/Romance)

Synopsis taken from Goodreads:  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’s 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…

My thoughts:  The Marriage Bargain is a quick, fun read that had me laughing out loud and falling in love with the characters... I liked it so much that I read it twice!  I enjoyed that Alexa and Nick weren't two strangers who meet at the right time, they actually know each other since childhood... Alexa had a crush on Nick until he broke her heart.  With their history and hidden attraction for each other, the dialogue and interactions between them was very entertaining. 

This is the first novel by Jennifer Probst that I've read and I'll definitely read more of her novels in the near future.  I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a light romantic novel with the typical "happily ever after" ending, and let's face it... I'm a sucker for happy endings.
