This is a touching, sweet and humorous story. I loved how the two main protagonists acted tough to hide their fears. As the story progressed both of the character grew and changed. Their fake marriage forced them to spend time together and get to know each other, allowing them to explore their feelings for each other. And with the help of the other “love” interest they were also able to find themselves and figure out what they really wanted in life. The supporting characters were so diverse and lovable and the ending was satisfying. I enjoyed every minute of this story and hope to read the “Marriage Mistake” when it comes out.
In order to help his sister, Micheal Conte must uphold an old family tradition. He promised his father that he would take care of the family and will go to any lengths to make that happen. He must get married. In order to keep his promise and avoid getting trapped into marriage, he talks Maggie Ryan into posing as his fiancé while doing a photo-shoot in Milan. Unexpected events and feelings come in to play as they spend time together, pretending to be in love. As their desire grows they begin to wonder how much is pretend and how much is real.
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?
