The sizzling first book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Marriage to a Billionaire series by “one of the most exciting breakout novelists” (USA TODAY) Jennifer Probst.

A marriage in name only...

To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner Alexa Maria McKenzie casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend’s older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.

Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.

A marriage in name only with certain rules: Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?

Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans...

    It’s funny and romantic and of course there is always someone with an issue to let themselves be loved and love . Great story put together and the characters I fell in love with them. You won’t be disappointed. I honestly recommend this story and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

    I really love this book!! I've read it multiple times and it's a quick read. If you're looking for a somewhat dirty yet feel good story this series of books are worth it.

    Wasn't sure if I wanted to listen, (have on audio), to this book. A gift from my daughter who reads Steven King. Going to work I plugged it in for company. I wasn't sure at first but as it played I got more into it. I went from, "You're kidding to laughing ". I have enjoyed this Audiobook since. Give it a shot can't miss.
  • I can't Love this enough! ❤️

    This was my first Jennifer Probst book and to say I was hooked after this would be an understatement! I loved Nick and Alexa so, so much. Alexa is so independent and proud and how she puts her family before herself and anything's humbling. Nick puts on a mask to cover up his vulnerability but underneath it all he is sweet, caring and so loving. You will fall in love with Nick and Alexa, their story and Author! ❤️
  • Cute

    By PeaceLoveUS
    It was very cute. Fun at times. Don't know if I would have paid the $7.99 for it though. All in all it was done very well. I wish the epilogue was in the main person POV and not Maggie. It made it lose something. I know they were setting up the next story it made it fall flat. But like I said it was cute.

    I'm a sucker for a love story, and this one didn't necessarily disappoint. Interesting page-turner but I feel there should be more. It was predictable but nothing wrong with that, I just wish there was more development in the characters and with their relationship. It just jumped through large spans of time throughout the book. The ending felt rushed and left me wanting more. I looked into the next books in the series, hoping there'd be an extension of Nick and Alexa's story but they're not. I'm sure they're somehow included in at least the second book, but won't know until I read.
  • Good read!
