The Marriage Mistake | [Jennifer Probst]

The Marriage Mistake

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.

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....

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    Story
    "Not as Strong as the 1st Two But Still A Good Read"

    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.

    "Never Boring!!"

    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.

    "Not a mistake but not that great"

    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.
