TIJUANA’S BOOK REVIEW
This was so sexy and so much fun!
It’s a favorite trope of mine and the chemistry between the main characters is off the charts hot!! It’s a super quick and fun read! I’m really loving this series so much!
Here’s the breakdown:
Carson inherited his biological father’s company after a cousin made some poor financial decisions. While working to bring the company back into the black he makes a deal with a rival businessman to bail the company out. The only catch….he has to marry the guys daughter.
What I loved:
The trope is a top fave of mine, but the main characters were amazing. Carson is dominant and swoony! A real catch! I also loved that things progressed rather quickly with them. They jumped right into the relationship and pretty much gave it their all. It really helped to make the relationship and the short timeframe more believable. I also enjoyed the mini twist at the end. Everything was wrapped up in a neat little bow.
All in all, this was a great quick read. If you’re looking for something steamy and fun, I highly recommend it!
An Overnight Billionaire…
When Carson Frost inherits a confectionary that rakes in billions but is too cash-strapped to last another sixty days, he agrees to take a loan from his late father’s rival. There are two catches: Carson has to sign over a permanent stake in the company, and marry the man’s daughter.
Concocts a Fake Bride…
Two weeks before the wedding, he gets cold feet and claims he’s in love with someone else. The investor says he’ll still hand over the cash if Carson takes a stroll down the aisle–with the woman who owns his heart. Since he isn’t even dating anyone, Carson panics. Where is he going to find a bride willing to jilt him at the altar on such short notice?
And Whips Up a Little Love. Ella Hope is an actress happy for any paying gig, but jilting a hottie in public isn’t what she had in mind. Still, she needs rent, and he’s in a bind. How hard can it be? While playing at matrimony, suddenly their intimacy isn’t so fake. Ella can’t help but fantasize that Carson is her groom and they will live happily ever after. But once his company is safe, will he want her anymore?
