  2. Just quick thoughts, ok This was 2.5 stars for me I rounded up because I hate giving 2 stars, I feel bad Why only 2.5 stars Oh well, kinda predictable and boring Maybe sweet stories are not my cuppa any And yes, it had hot sex but for some reason that s not enough for me I need to FEEL and let s say this book didn t make it for me but, and this is a big but, most of my buddies loved it so give it a try as you might like it than me A one night stand just wasn t worth it Not even with a woman who [...]

  3. I am the big bad wolf, sweetheart Now get your ass up to your room Reading Jennifer Probst s books makes me feel like I am on some tropical island, laying in the sun, a sexy cabana boy on call and a cocktail in hand I feel a little naughty from the pleasure it gives me, but I m grinning from ear to ear from the sheer indulgence of it all There is something in these books, perhaps the idea of a marriage of convenience turning into true love that just speaks to the hopeless dreamer in me I want to [...]

  5. Rating 2.5 starsThis is the third book in a series by Jennifer Probst and it was one I was looking forward to, since in the second installment of the series we met the heroine Carina, who was shy and awkward and was madly in love with her brother s best friend Max.The Marriage Mistake opens a few years later and Carina has just completed her MBA and is moving to America to work in her brother s company It is something that is expected of her but isn t her passion, which is painting She though no [...]

  6. The third installment in the Marriage to a Billionaire series is stunning I didn t think Nick and Alexa from The Marriage Bargain could be topped and then I met Michael and Maggie from The Marriage Trap Of course I loved them I was so connected to their story I didn t think I could read The Marriage Mistake until a friend told me to cut the cord and dive in Max and Carina, I have to say my cheeks got the ultimate workout from the constant smile on my face as I read every word of their story This [...]

  10. Soo I stayed up at till 3 in the morning to finish this book and let me tell you what a huge waste of time that was I thought it was the worst out all the marriage to a billionaire series First of all the book took way to long to get to where they finally start realizing they might have feelings for each other I over half way through when it finally started looking like a romance novel Secondly and the most important point was that the ending sucked I mean she leaves him because she s not sure h [...]

  11. The Marriage Mistake was fun, flirty and addictive There s a fair amount of sexual tension and denial that makes it oh so satisfying when they finally give in and let go Carina is the na ve heroine longing to break free of her traditional Italian family s overprotective constraints, and experience life and passion She had a mad, intense crush on her brother s best friend, Max all growing up, one that was evident to everyone including Max Max, of course, only looked on her as a little girl and th [...]

  12. I am so glad I finally read this To be honest, I read the first one, the Marriage Bargain, but completely skipped the second, the Marriage Trap I wasn t yelling from the roof tops about how good it was and actually found it slightly boring I thought the characters fell flat for me and the story didn t have enough of a stellar cast.Whoever coined the expression, third s one a charm must have been talking about this one I know, I know I m saying this without having read the 2nd in this series but [...]

  13. 5 starsThanks to Simon Shuster via NetGalley for this ARC.Oh my I loved this book It was so good So good I stayed awake and had panda eyes on the next day.This story was way intriguing and interesting, it got me hooked until the end I really liked the sexual tension between Carina and Max It was super uber hot With the brand new sexy, beautiful, artistic Carina, she s definitely a great match for hot, brooding, commitment phobe Max I also liked their banters, their conversations, their longing l [...]

  15. In a time of my life when I m struggling to finish most of the books I start, the fact that I was looking forward each night to read about Carina and Max, is a plus by itself I never thought I d like this fluffy contemporary romance so much, but the truth is, it had humor, it had a dose of angst, it had unrequited love, two very interesting characters, a plot that flowed easily and some really hot chemistry between the main leads, so I enjoyed the heck out of it Carina has been in love with Max [...]

  16. This is a sweet little read It s the story of the youngest Conte sister, Carina, and the man that she has loved since she was a teenager her older brother s best friend, Max Carina has moved from Italy to the US to start a new life for herself, and enjoy the freedom that comes from being away from home and her sheltered upbringing She has a job lined up in the family business, and her protective brother wants her to learn all about her family legacy, so he gives her a position assisting the CEO [...]

  17. I read the first book to this series a while back and if I may be honest, I can say that I barely remember what happened in that book Unfortunately, it wasn t that memorable The third installment was mildly interesting but it still didn t rock my boat In my experience, mind blowing books in this genre are typically hard to find, unless they re written by Lisa Kleypas Anyway, The Marriage Mistake has a plot that have been used, misused and abused since the beginning of time girl in love with her [...]

  18.

  19. I m sorry did the heat go up in my room, or am i just imagining thingsThis book was phwoah i mean there were some seriously hot sizzling scenes between the main two and i won t lie i enjoyed every minute of it In fact I think those scenes are what made this book great.It was a fairly easy read, with a typical girl loves boy, boy rejects girl, girl grows up and ignores boy, boy wants girl and then a forced marriage after a steamy night of sex okay so that part wasnt how most books would go I love [...]

  20. This book is not simply bad but truly awful A mere excuse to rip off one skin from the same story and make some money The characters are flat, they barely have any personality They are shallow and priviliged, reminding me of the quality of my fantasies when I was no than 5 years old The only sign of the characters Italian origin is that they someties say DIO Very authentic no The conversations are fake, lacking the sense of reality My advice is to stay away from this book, avoid it at any cost [...]

  21. 2.5I am disappointed, I expected from this book Through all the book I couldn t feel anything special about them First the way that Carina treated Max in the beginning it was like she is saying because I loved you and you didn t notice me then, now I m having my revenge and I m NOT going sleep with you all the time.And the way it took so long that they find oh they have this feeling for each other and then in the end she doesn t accept that he love him because she need to love herself first OMG [...]

  22. Review also posted at Under The Covers Book Blog The Marriage Mistake is the third installment of Marriage to a Billionaire by Jennifer Probst I must say that this book is the best of the three Ms Probst mastered the art of sexual tension, smexy scenes and managed to add a heart warming element to the story, not to mention the swoon worthy hero Max and Carina are two people who are career minded Max already established in the business world with Michael Conte, Carina s older Brother Carina on th [...]

  23. Disclaimer I didn t finish reading this book.There are so many reasons this book made it so difficult for me to read it but I am going to go with the top four a authenticity the lead characters, they re meant to be Italians Yes But past the pazzos and the dios i didn t get it Even in the least Somehow, the whole they re not american came up only when Max or Carina say things like Or as you Americans say it Ok Love of bruschetta does not make Italian.b the lead characters Neither of them possesse [...]

  24. So far I have quite enjoyed the Marriage to a Billionaire series The Marriage Bargain and The Marriage Trap and after reading the second book I was sure that the series was getting better with each book I hop high hopes for this, the blurb sounded awesome, the characters and romance had been introduced in The Marriage Trap and I was excited to read It all seemed so promising but unfortunately The Marriage Mistake fell well short of the mark for me.I didn t like the characters all that much Cari [...]

  25. I enjoyed this one, about the same as I did The Marriage Trap, I guess so far neither of them are able to unseat my love for Alexa and Nick s story At any rate, I liked that we were given a continued glimpse into the earlier character s story Carina was beginning to bug me a little with her insecurities especially when Max made it obvious that he wanted to make this work Momma Conte is definitely a force to be reckoned with, I loved when she revealed to Carina how she had to get involved with Mi [...]

  26. The first two books in the series were really good, but this one blew them out of the water Maximus Grey was smoking hot Loved him Carina was great too Really a fun sexy read

  27. 4.5 StarsI think I might actually love Carina and Max s story than Alexa and Nick s Love, marriage and babies I love, love, love it Full review to come closer to release date.
