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....

Yes, I lovveee this series, and the narrator did an aweaome job.
Definitely Mama Conti, shes so sneaky.
Ive listen to quite a few of her preformances, loved evey one of them.
Yes and no..yes because its a cute light romantic book in a great series. No because I know I'm going to have to wait for the next one.
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
A sweet, traditional romance. Like the first two books in the series the premise is totally unbelievable. But the author's skill continues to elevate the pedestrian plot. My only real issue is that the two main characters were Italian but they both spoke in English voices. I don't mean just that the narrator was an American. I mean there was no attempt to show in the dialog that the characters were from anywhere but New Jersey, or Missouri or California.
I really like this narrator. But for this book, maybe someone else would be better.
This is definitely weaker than the previous two entries. But again, this writer's skill makes a fairly boilerplate contemporary romance a little less boilerplate.
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!
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.
yes, i would i loved all 3 books
when she came back to her husband
when her sis in law gave birth
no not really
I enjoy this author and hope Audible will be getting more of her books. The story line is well written and is never boring. The characters are well defined and have such interesting personalities. The narration is spot on, making the listening wonderful.
I've enjoyed this series and getting to know the characters in JP's books.
This was my first book by this author and it was okay for me. It is a typical romance with the expected happy ending. After I finished this book I realized it is one of three but I won't be getting the others. It just was interesting enough for me. Narrator was good.
