Six years ago, Midge Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.
Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled two months before shooting.
Midge gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Midge’s cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from, but no trust fund equals no college degree.
Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged as a heartless playboy-among other things-by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date.
Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and hope that one of the contestants holds some potential. So what is he supposed to do when the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated?
Marry Your Billionaire is a fun, romantic romp set against the backdrop of reality TV. Throw on your PJ’s, grab some chocolate and popcorn, and settle in for an entertaining love story.
*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Midge didn’t want to be part of the spotlight and she definitely did not want to be known only as Corbin Knightly’s daughter. She wanted to gain her own identity and know that when someone liked her that it was because he truly liked her and not because of what her father could do for him. Not everyone considered fame and money perks.
“He was a dream, wrapped in a fairy tale, dipped in chocolate, and laden with dollops of whip cream.”
Brody was CEO of an online dating website and when he was put through the papers as using his own site for debauchery his image took a beating. He needed to clean up that image and his assistant thought finding a bride, on a reality TV show, was the way to do it. He honestly did not want to do it, but when he met a fiery redhead that called him like she saw him and refused to fall at his feet he no longer wanted to do the show…he wanted her.
“I think it took me everything I had to allow her to walk away from me. Around her it felt like I was breathing fresh air for the first time.”
There are a lot of secrets and manipulation when it comes to reality TV, I think that’s why I personally don’t watch the stuff, but reading it is entirely different. Marry Your Billionaire is full of twists, threats, murder attempts, even pranks, not to mention kisses good enough to ignite any flame.
I enjoyed Midge’s snarky comments toward Brody, not to mention her little dye job. And I loved Brody’s attempts to woo Midge. The things he’d say to her were amazingly perfect and would have just about any woman swooning.
“I plan on sweeping her off her feet, turning her world upside down, and laying bare my heart while winning hers in the process.”
My Favorite Laughable Moment: Nothing like a child’s interpretation of Cinderella to make you smile. I’m not sure what had me laughing more…the way she dictated the story or the way Midge and Brody acted it out for her.
