Good, but didn't grab me like The Marriage Bargain.

Also, the books are quite expensive. So that, along with how lacklustre this book was, has put me off buying the third installment - The Marriage Mistake (which is $7.16 - ouch!)!

Anyway, The Marriage Trap follows on from The Marriage Bargain, and tells the story of Alexa's friends, Maggie and Michael.

Michael is a lovable, hot, passionate, Italian entrepreneur, and Maggie is a fashion photographer. Maggie comes across as quite bitchy, aloof and cold compared to Michael, but later on in the story, we learn why she is the way she is, and I started to warm to her a lot more after this.

Some things that annoyed me about this book were:

1. Michael's mum. Apparently being an Italian matriarch gives you licence to be manipulative and domineering! She came across as a bully, and I didn't like her.

2. The cat. Who brings a cat all the way over to America from Italy?! And he's not even a nice cat at that!

3. The name of the restaurant - La Dolce Maggie. Please. This is just cringe-worthy.

Anyway, 3 respectable stars, for a book that was quite readable, but didn't set my world on fire.

This is a great follow-up to 'The marriage Bargain' and I really enjoyed it. Although there are quite a few similarities b/w both books, I loved the story line and the way this new romance unfolds passionately & in a captivating way. Both lead characters are so loveable & witty! I also loved Mama Conte & her feisty daughters. Worth the 5 stars! Easy, funny, sizzling read!

A bit disappointed not as funny as the first book.
Maggie got on me nerves after a while. She wanted to give in to the Count's proposals and advances then she didn't. He came across as being very patient considering he was the boss of a large family and business and what he says goes. They were both stubborn but he was always the one to give in first, one way or another. The romance was there but I felt it didn't quite hit the spot.

Yey. It's Maggie's story and the delectable Michael Conte.

Maggie is Alexa's best friend and her husbands sister. She is a spitfire and a professional photographer who works with mostly naked men and under ware with a brilliant eye for a great picture. She is also a bit of a control freak.

Michael Conte is the man in charge of his families chain of bakeries and looks after his three sisters and his mother. He too is a bit of a control freak after taking charge of the family business after his fathers death and giving up his own dreams of racing.

Maggie has always seen the close friendship between Michael and Maggie as something other, that Michael is in love with her best friend and is determined to do everything to keep him away from her. With a call from his sister however Michael's world spins.

His sister cries as her boyfriend has finally proposed, but his mother says that she cannot marry until Michael has done so. Family tradition that the eldest marries first. But his sister and her fiancé do not want to wait. So Michael needs to find someone to pretend to be married to for a while. The only one who fits the bill is Maggie.

Maggie cannot believe what she hears, but before she turns down his request, he goes for the kill, suggesting that perhaps he talks to Alexa to help him. Thereby she agrees to help, but only if he never sees Alexa again. She doesn't want him to interfere with her friend marriage to her brother.

They go to Milan where she has a photo shoot and she charms his family, and a stray cat that know one else can get close to along with his cousins children. It is obvious that his mother can see the truth immediately and she weaves her own little web.

If, like me, you are a sucker for an easy reading romance, this ticks all the boxes.

Following on from Marriage Bargain (Marriage to a Billionaire) but focussing on Maggie and Michael (who were both important characters), it is well-written, has some fabulous steamy content, humour and some heartwarming moments. Both were easy to love characters; Maggie is fiery, stubborn, opinionated, witty and honest, but like we discovered in the first book with her brother Nick, she comes from parents that treated their children as commodities. Michael shares many of the same traits, but comes from a close family where love is given in abundance and unconditionally. So much so that he is prepared to fake a marriage to ensure his sister's happiness; before he died, his father declared that Michael would have to be married before his sisters could do so. Their relationship was full of wit, banter, disagreements and sexual tension and whilst it was predictable it made a great read. Michael's family are wonderful and bring great content to the story.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable read that I will happily recommend and look forward to reading The Marriage Mistake which focusses on Michael's youngest sister Carina.
