My POV: The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

A marriage in name only...

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…Goodreads

My POV
I don't think I stopped laughing or smiling unless I was crying throughout this whole book!It was so much fun to read! I loved it!

I dug in to this book like is was a banana split with extra cherries..haha (I LOOOOVE BANANA SPLITS!!) It was such a cute and moving story. I loved the chemistry between Alexa and Nick. It was full of passion, acceptance and understanding. Plus, their background story added the right amount of tension to keep you on edge.

These two have had family issues in their past but Alexa has learned to forgive while Nick holds on to the past as a warning of what he believes his future will hold. The whole time I rooted for their happily ever after but in a lot of scenes it just seemed like they were not going to make it past their assumptions and stubbornness. Those were heartbreaking to read but it made the make up scenes that much better.

The characters were great, the story line exciting and the ending fairy tale like. If you looking for a fun passionate read make sure to pick this one up. I promise your day will be so much better after reading the banter between these to lovers. Hilarious!

She gripped the wall and stared with horror from across the room. "I never knew," she said huskily. "I never knew this was what you really thought of me. I though--"She took a deep breath and lifted her shin. "I guess it doesn't matter what I thought, dose it?"
She turned to leave and he flung his last words at her back. "You made a big mistake, Alexa."
"You're right," she whispered. "I did."
Then she left.
