I didn't like this story as much as The Marriage Bargain, but I did enjoy Michael and Maggie's story. He's an alpha male business man with some "traditional" ideas about what he wants in a wife. Maggie is an outspoken spitfire with a warm heart hidden by her snarky exterior.
The plot here was pretty generic, but I did like the characters. Mama Conte is a force to be reckon with, and the three sisters Venezia, Julietta, and Carina are all great individually and even more as a group. They round out Michael as well as Maggie, revealing extra sides that made me fall even more in love with these characters.
So, with such good characters, but an average plot leads me to give this book a solid 3 stars.
About the Book
Title: The Marriage Trap
Series: Marriage to a Billionaire, 2
Author: Jennifer Probst
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Gallery Books
Publication Date: October 2, 2012
To satisfy his late father’s wishes, hot and single billionaire Michael Conte must find a bride—someone who will fit into his traditional family back home in Italy—and fast, so his engaged sister will be allowed to wed. With no intention of being tied down, Michael “proposes” to fiery, free-spirited photographer Maggie Ryan: if she will play the part of his fiancée during her trip to Milan for a photo shoot, he will keep away from her married best friend, Alexa, and stop making Maggie nuts with their too-close-for- comfort flirtations.
But once in Italy, sexual tension sparks the hottest no-strings- attached arrangement on any continent. Could marriage be the most enticing trap of all?
