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?

You know, this trope is so common, yet Jennifer Probst still made it a fun and entertaining audiobook.
Last book, it was mentioned that Maggie Ryan went on a blind date with Michael Conte but something happened and there was tension between the two. It was uncomfortable and didn't seem that is was a good match. Until book 2.
Maggie was a nice character who had a defense built around her heart to keep everyone out. Michael Conte seemed like a bossy jerk but it quickly became clear that he was the opposite of those things. One week of a fake marriage was all it was supposed to be but it seems they were each other's missing puzzle piece.
This book kept my attention. I liked it just as much as book 1. The writing was crisp and engaging. It wasn't too deep nor was it a shallow read. It gave just enough to build the characters up and keep the flow of the story.
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
This was a welcomed listen. Sometimes you need something light. Like Dante the cat, Maggie could be too strong-willed, distant & stubborn. Michael's met his match with Maggie. It was worth my credit because I needed humor, travel, and romance. Madeleine Maby is a good narrator.
Audible addict... need i say more
Nothing to heavy, nothing to crazy, no twist and turns. Just a nice contempoary romance :}
I liked this book. It was good but not great. The storyline is predictable but sweet. The narration by Madeline Maby is good. I think she sounds a lot like Grace a Grant with a little bit of a softer tone.
I love reading but don't have time. The audiobooks allow me to hear the books I want to read. I love audible!
I love Michael he does something for me. The heat between him and Maggie makes me fan myself. This is my second time listen to this book.
These stories by Jennifer touch your heart. They are broken people who found themselves with the help of a new love. I like how you laugh, cry and then laugh again with these books.
The first in the series was pretty good. But this is basically a knockoff of the first book. Slightly different situations but basically the same story line. The narrator is better for this one although her Italian accents are terrible. Also, I found the writing and this one to be worse. She uses the word "capiche" at least 10 times if not more.
It's formulaic but still a great read. Very entertaining, a nice weekend read. Keep writing and well keep reading.
