The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release: Entangled, September 2012
Sold by: Entangled

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 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…

The Marriage Bargain is one of the books that I chose in my quest to find a more Twilight-esque / Fifty Shades of Grey-ish book. I am not ashamed to admit that Twilight gave me crazy butterflies in my stomach and Fifty Shades was pure unadulterated shock to my hormones. So I was looking for something in between, and this book gets it. The ridiculous idea of fake marriage has never worked in every form of entertainment, so it was safe to say that they obviously fell for each other after all the secrets. Nonetheless it was very entertaining. I am kind of annoyed by Ms. Mckenzie's philantrophic efforts on why she needed the money. The effort was not really clear to me, surely there are other ways but whatever that is a very small flaw in the story, just really wanted to mention it. It is really a nice fast read that any woman can enjoy.
