Publisher's Summary

Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: Her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.

Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand - and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable - and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed....

    "Heart warming romance novel"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Carina, I loved seeing Carina grow up, I liked seeing her come from the shy young women in book 2 to the mature self confident women in book 3


    What about Madeleine Maby’s performance did you like?

    Madeleine makes the characters unique and memorable


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I spent a day doing spring cleaning listening to this book made me want to clean to keep listening!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see how Max and Carina and all the other characters are in book 4!

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Nice Light Hearted Romance Novel"

    This is the last book in the series and seriously I wish Ms. Probst would continue the series. Sawyer anyone??? Hint, hint! I really like the way her books work out the problems, there are no quick fixes. Just read them all and start with the first book, The Marriage Bargain.
    Madeleine Maby did an outstanding job with the narration.

    "Same plot every time"

    First there is a kiss, then interrupted 1st base, third is sleep together 1 night o get it out of their system, fourth one says their past can't let them be in love, fifth one declares love and shot down, finally an epic show of love. Every book has been the same. Change the flow just a little.

    "Fun Listen"
    Would you listen to The Marriage Mistake again? Why?

    Yes, I love to listen while working on other things. I'd listen to the sexy romantic parts again and pay more attention.


    What other book might you compare The Marriage Mistake to and why?

    Rock Chick


    What about Madeleine Maby’s performance did you like?

    Nice variation is voice levels and perfection in her pace.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a great recording. There is a pop and hiss in the background like an old record recording.

    "Feel Good Predictable But Bumpy Romance"
    Would you try another book from Jennifer Probst and/or Madeleine Maby?

    Sure, Maby's narration is fantastic. Probst keeps your interest and you feel warm and fuzzy throughout the listen.

    Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: Her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.

    Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand - and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable - and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maximus-he's a good guy, willing to do the work despite his troubled past.


    Have you listened to any of Madeleine Maby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she is fantastic. One can tell the difference between female characters and the male character sound manly.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    It is what it is meant to be-a feel good, romantic escape.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTE: Chic lit with some descriptions of sex and a few swears-not something to listen to with the kiddos around.
