Review: The Marriage Trap

 The Marriage Trap (Marriage to a Billionaire, #2)
Author: Jennifer Probst
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | TBD

Synopsis: WIFE WANTED…

Italian billionaire seeks faux fiancée. Willing to agree to anything in return...

In order for his sister to marry, Italian billionaire Michael Conte has to find himself a bride – and fast! When he learns that photographer Maggie Ryan is going to be in Milan, Michael hatches a plan to introduce her to his family as his “fiancée.” Never mind that Maggie is confident, independent, and a control freak. Never mind that she’s everything he doesn’t want in a wife… and everything he wants in his bed!

Convinced that Michael is in love with her married gal pal, Maggie agrees to keep up the ruse if he’ll keep away from her friend. Besides, she’s not attracted to charming, ridiculously hot billionaires who drive her nuts. Once they’re in Italy, however, everything changes – and the sexual tension between Maggie and Michael goes from simmer to naked nuclear meltdown!

But have they found the perfect arrangement… or are they trapped in a make-believe marriage?


I just recently decided to start a routine of Friday Adult Reads and I think I made a great decision by starting that with this book.

After I finished reading The Marriage Bargain, I wished to know more about Maggie and Probst fulfilled it! Yay!

Fierce and strong-willed Maggie enters this faux engagement with one thing in mind: to keep his brother's marriage safe. But that arrangement won't be easy if his faux fiance is the guy she hated the most.

Michael and Maggie, like the previous couple, weren't opposites at all. They both love control and in this arrangement, they fought for it. I enjoyed this book more because of the banters between the two. I love how the build up of their relationship and wasn't rushed at all. It was very well paced and didn't bore me at all. I was satisfied not to find an unnecessary scene that are usually added just to add length. The characters were also great; not just Michael and Maggie but also the others, especially Michael's mother.

It may have lesser steamy scenes but the sexual tension is crackling off the page. Can't wait for next Friday smut: The Marriage Mistake
