The Marriage Trap | [Jennifer Probst]

The Marriage Trap

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....

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?

    "Another Simple romance, but I liked it"

    She did it again!

    If you're looking for a simple romance book to burn a few hours of your time, then this one is for you. Like the first book the story is a little unbelievable and completely predictable but I still enjoyed it. I liked the narrator too.

    Looking forward to the next installment.

    Story
    "This Woman Can Write - Give Her A Real Plot"

    This is the second book I have read by this author and the second I have reviewed. I've never done this before. They are the epitome of chick-lit romance. They come across as light and fluffy. The whole "Marriage to a Billionaire" tag line screams "shallow".

    But the author has a way with words and a great sense of humor. Even though the plot in this book, just like in the first, is totally implausible, the characters that move the story forward are totally believable - if you take away the "billionaire" part, the repetitive fake marriage plot and the disconnected issues with the language - the American character uses Italian slang and only some of the Italian characters use any Italian and then only rarely. They sound like they are from Chicago.

    The characters are complex, sympathetic, quirky and funny. Several of them have unexpected depth.

    With just a little push, the author could become a really great talent. She doesn't have to give up the romance or chick-lit genre, she just needs to make her plot more plausible and realistic. Her characters are ready for it.

    I enjoyed the narrator as well.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable and romantic chic/lit"

    As with the previous book in the Marriage To a Billionaire series called The Marriage Bargain, this second book was fun, entertaining, sexy and was filled with lots of interesting characters who all had such great chemistry between each other - including the main characters Maggie, a successful photographer, and Michael, a Billionaire playboy, who have a love/hate relationship going on. You also hear how Alexa and Nicholas are doing from book 1.

    Maggie has now passed on the spell book to Michael's sister Carina and it's her story next in The Marriage Mistake but we have to wait until November for it.

    Worth a credit? Yes, pure romantic escapism.

    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!

    Story
    "A Steamy and Fun Read"

    The Marriage Trap by Jennifer Probst is passionately sexy and emotionally compelling. Mia Amore! It sure did surpass my expectations.

    I won't reiterate the plot; I think the synopsis does a fine job of that.

    I loved the characters in this book, Michael is the kind of guy dreams are made of; Handsome, loyal, family oriented, compassionate a guy with a big heart. Maggie is my kinda girl; strong, independent, feisty and sassy to the end.
    Together Michael and Maggie were dynamite; their chemistry was scorching HOT!

    I loved the Conte family dynamics in this book, the strong family ties worked well in moving along the plot.

    "Sooo Good!"

    I love how two of my fave characters from book 1 gets together. I didn't know Maggie was so messed up though, which made this book even better. Michael was awesome and the narrator really did a good job for all the characters. I could tell the difference between each and every character. Worth the credit.

    "Met Expectations"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Marriage Trap to be better than the print version?

    I really believe that this book was just as entertaining and thought provoking as the first. This book was just what I expected. I would recommed this book to anyone. My only suggestion is to read the Marriage Bargain first for some background of the two main characters.

    Story
    "Exactly the same as The Marriage Bargain"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not at all. This book was literally the exact same as The Marriage Bargain with different character names and of course the characters from The Marriage Bargain were in this book. Waste of time just listen to the Marriage Bargain twice and save yourself a credit.


    Would you recommend The Marriage Trap to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not really, not only is it a carbon copy of The Marriahe Bargain but it's not even that good of a story. It wasn't horrible at all but nothing memorable either.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite, nothing stood out


    Could you see The Marriage Trap being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It could be a Lifetime movie for sure and it would be an okay movie to watch on a rainy Sunday


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your credit.

    "Simple Light Chic Romance"

    Light, dramatic, romantic and undeniable mills and boon stuff, but ok. Good for times when you want to listen whilst doing something and don't need to take to much notice of story line.
