Book Description

25 April 2013
Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother's best friend since she was a teenager. Having earned an MBA, she is now going to work for her brother Michael at his new venture, America's fastest growing bakery empire. But some things never change: treated as a child by her family, and continuously out-shone by her three gorgeous siblings, Carina still feels like the ugly duckling. Max, the new CEO knows that his friend's little sister is completely off limits, but lust wins out at a conference they attend together - only to be caught at it by her mother! The Italian Mama insists on the two of them marrying, leaving a miserable Max and a furious Carina. Her new husband is about to realise that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed…

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!! Absolutely sizzling! 9 April 2013
By Nsj
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I never thought this 3rd book of the 'Marriage' series, although a standalone, would be as good as the previous two, but I was so wrong! Carina & Max have such amazing chemistry and it's so believable, it practically jumps out of the book! I loved their frequent sparring (in & out of bed!!) and their shared love of food, animals & family. They're up there with my favourite characters in this genre and in fact, Carina's quite easily my favourite female character because she's feisty & passionate and not simpering like some writers make their female leads. I would recommend reading the 2 previous books just to understand the other characters and the bond between all of them. All very entertaining and absorbing from start to finish! Worth 5 stars!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, not worth the price 20 Nov 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to reading this book, as the other ones I had read were OK. The first one was great, second was OK, and this one is BORING! I have to admit I was disappointed in this book. From the start it was bland and boring, the story line is boring and predictable, seems to dribble on, its as if shes just shoved the book together with any random dribble, which is a pity. After getting to the ''half way mark'' i closed it and got rid of it, I couldnt read on it was that awful, I forced myself to read to the ''ha;f way'' point, just to give it a chance, trust me, it gets no better! It doesnt help that amazon charge far to much for this book, and when it arrived its TINY! its smaller than the length a ruler! so i was in bed, reading this ting book that you have to keep a grip on, or it shuts on you, having to crease down the pages, AND IT TURNS OUT TO BE crap! I dont think Ill buy any more Jennifer Probst books, shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best book in the series 30 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the best book in the series by far. I was looking forward to Carina's story and i wasn't disappointed at all. The story really brought me in and i couldn't help myself from crying near the end.

Carina has been in love with Max since she was a teenager and everyone knew even Max. But Max was her big brothers best friend and a series commitment freak. If he didn't feel a spark he didn't continue with the relationship and he certainly never invited them to meet his family.

Max has struggled with the knowledge that his father left his pregnant mother and has wanted nothing to do with him and was really disappointed with the man he went to find. He has vowed never to be like him so has struggled to find what he really wanted, or just been too plain scared to go for it.

Carina has started work in America to get away from being cosseted. She wants the American way of dating without her family breathing down her neck and has changed a lot since Max last saw her. Now what stands before him is a woman he finds himself lusting after. But Carinas big heart gets in the way of business and shes not really sure she wants to be there. She is only there to please everyone else.

The attraction between the two is hot and they have many heated kisses and a few fumbles. But it is on a business trip to Vegas where things take a major u-turn and Max takes what he wants.

What is supposed to be a one night stand as a virgin ends up a lot more when Carinas mother gives them a surprise visit and insists they marry. Max agrees as his honour and Carina's is at stake, but Carina is not at all happy.

Surprisingly for Max, he takes to the change very well, but Carina is not happy. She didn't get the fairy tale she wanted, she got forced wedding from him.
