The Marriage Bargain {Review}

14 Flares 14 Flares ×

I love to read, but it always seems like I never have the time to actually do so. When I do get a few minutes to myself, I am very picky about what books I will read. There is nothing more disappointing and frustrating to me then picking the wrong book. Because I am so limited in free “me” time, I want to be really able to get into my book – it has to captivate me, hold my attention, and make me want to forget all of my responsibilities for the day and just keep reading.

That is just what happened when I started reading The Marriage Bargain by Sandra Edwards.

I honestly couldn’t put it down! I do love a paper book, but I was super happy that I had this one as a digital version – I uploaded it to my iPhone and I was able to read bits and pieces where I could throughout the day… even while I was putting the kids to be {E needs to have someone in the room while he falls asleep still, which is VERY boring for me normally}.

Camille Chandler is a tabloid journalist whose career is right on track–until her boss sees a curious ad in the L.A. Trades.

Wanted: Single actress for an extended gig abroad.

France’s mega-rich playboy Julian de Laurent is up to something and Camille’s boss expects her to find out what. Who knew the eccentric gazillionaire was looking to hire a temporary wife?

When Camille refuses to accept Julian’s proposal–and secretly write a juicy tell-all about the de Laurent family–she’s fired and left financially destitute, forcing her to entertain Julian’s proposal for real. But what’ll happen at the end of the contract period, after Camille has spent six months as the wife of a man she learns is capable of stealing her heart?

I found myself really rooting for this business deal/pretend couple to turn into more and for them to actually fall in love. As someone that is planning a wedding, I found myself swooning over Camille’s fairytale nuptials, romantic dinners and private cruise honeymoon.

This book is not what I typically would pick up and read – I am more into sci fi based books (vampires, witches, ghosts, etc) – but I am so happy that I gave it a chance! I really loved it, and plan on reading it again in the near future {Yup, I am definitely a re-reader of my favorites :)}
