Six years ago, Midge Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.
Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled two months before shooting.
Midge gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Midge’s cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from, but no trust fund equals no college degree.
Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged as a heartless playboy-among other things-by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date.
Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and hope that one of the contestants holds some potential. So what is he supposed to do when the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated?
Marry Your Billionaire is a fun, romantic romp set against the backdrop of reality TV. Throw on your PJ’s, grab some chocolate and popcorn, and settle in for an entertaining love story.
I won an eARC of this book through a giveaway a month or so back (I honestly don’t remember) and finally go around to reading it.
Madelyn “Midge” Knightly is a quirky character with quite some determination to have her way. She’s a girl who likes hiding behind big frames, avoiding social gatherings and spotlights, has a strained relationship with her director father and is an aspiring author.
Brody Prescott is the CEO of an online dating company and is out to repair his image in the society after a stunt pulled by his ex-girlfriend which dragged his company down. He’s charming, supportive, caring and is basically the whole package.
I didn’t find any element surprising or different in the story. It was a normal contemporary romance. Now that I’m done reading it, as I look back, I don’t come up with much depth in character or feelings in the story. It was all on the surface and sticking to the theme.
The book is good for when you want a light romance read—not too heavy with issues or sexual attraction, without much problem and confusion, without tragedy and deep sadness. What you read in the synopsis is exactly what you get and it’s all pretty light.
I read a bit a long time back, and continued again waay later. I didn’t have any problem continuing without rereading the previous parts because the story is pretty simple.
It’s a good book, but I don’t think I would go out and buy it for keeps, if given the choice.
