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 like this series so far, but it’s not the wow kinda books for me. The first book had a good story and introduced some characters that to me were more interesting than the lead couple and now we have the way these two fell in love.
Michael was really charming and showed a great sense of family and respect in the first book, but at first I didn’t believe in this crazy relationship with Maggie, but these two were good together.
Maggie is not this irresponsible person we first met, she has a good career and it’s successful and rich, but her family was really bad and it affects the way she handles her friendship and how alone she is.
It was interesting seeing Maggie in Italy and how good she was with Michael family. She tried to be better for them, but still showed a side of her.
I liked this book better than the first one, but this was really good.
