New Release Review! MARRYING THE BILLIONAIRE by Allie Winters (Bishop Brothers #2)

Marrying the Billionaire cover

-Serena-

Marrying the man of your dreams after crushing on him for the last decade should be cause for celebration. So why am I crying alone in the honeymoon suite on my wedding night? Because there’s just one problem – it’s a fake marriage. Purely for appearances as part of a business deal between our fathers’ companies.

But I can’t sit idly by pretending this is only a platonic relationship, especially as sparks begin to fly between us. So what will I have to do to convince my stoic Prince Charming I want him for real? And what will I risk along the way?

-Archer-

The plan is simple – act like a husband in love publicly after I foolishly got myself involved in this fake marriage, and behind closed doors keep things separate. But the longer we continue this charade attending events and staging selfies, the more I’m unsure what’s fake and what’s not, especially when things start to heat up in private.

As the successor to my father’s billion dollar company, work has been my life. Focusing on my job has never been harder, though, when there’s a temptress living in my guest bedroom. What are the chances this business deal of a marriage could turn into the real thing? The last person I ever expected to fall for is… my wife.

Review:

Marrying the Billionaire is a sweet-yet-steamy, fake relationship/unrequited love romance where the shy, awkward girl from high school finally gets the guy of her dreams, albeit a tad bit messily. Plus, puppies. What’s not to love? 😉

Serena and Archer’s story draws you right in from the first page, with a wedding ceremony that is (hopefully!) unlike any you’ve probably witnessed before. Though the premise is a little shaky–would the best man/older brother of the groom really jump in to take his place when he says he can’t marry the heroine–while at the altar, nonetheless! just because of a business deal?–it still makes for one heck of a story. Poor Serena’s longtime crush on her surprise groom adds in all kinds of complications–goodness, she had me practically in tears, the poor thing–even as his cluelessness (she’s not acting, you dolt!) made me want to shake him at times. Still, it was impossible to read this and not root for the two of them to make things work in the end.

Which of course, they do. But Ms Winters really makes them work for it–as she should!

This was my first read from this author, but it definitely won’t be my last! It’s the second book in Ms Winters’ Bishop Brothers series, and though it did work OK as a standalone readers who haven’t read Gabriel’s book first ( Resisting the Billionaire ) are definitely a step behind, especially given how the book begins–it’s obvious there’s a story going on there, and we only get glimpses of it here. I started here, but I’m definitely going to make a point to read the first book before Connor’s book comes out–I need to see all three of brothers find their HEA!

Rating: 4 stars / B+
