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....

Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Well, she did it again....another easy listening (simple) romance story that I really enjoyed. Much like the first two books, it's a little unbelievable and completely predictable but I can't help but like this series. So far this one was my favorite. If you like book 1 or book 2 then you will enjoy this one too.
Again, the narrator is great and I'm looking forward to the next installment.
Ask yourself - what do you want from romance novels? Great characters that are involved in believable plots, passionate romances, some touching sexy love scenes and happy endings - right?
Well this book, and previous ones in the series, not only delivers the right criteria but delivers them by the bucket full. It could be a stand alone listen but there are references to other members of the family that the spell book has worked for and those characters all make their occasional appearances too.
Worth a credit? If you're a romance lover, want happy endings and are looking for a great listen to get lost in - then this book (along with the whole series) is an absolute MUST.
I've enjoyed the first one on the series, but this one for me was even better, very funny, sizzling interactions.
Loved the inner doubts of the main female character, although at the end it was a bit too much insecurity for my taste. But overall a great listen good story and the narrator did a pretty good job.
Give it a try
Engaging relationships and liked the overlap of characters in each successive book. A bit of plot redundancy in books 1 & 2 with "fake" marriages. Humor in sexually charged scenes will have you smiling if not laughing--overall sexual dynamics get better in each book. Would love to read more by this author--narrator of 2nd book the best, 3rd narrator the worst.
The incorporation of previous characters from the series were mention in this book.
When Max realized he actually loved Carina.
I really enjoyed Carina's charcater she had many layers to her character.
It made me laugh out loud a lot.
I would reccomend this book to all audiobook listeners.
“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.
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
Madeleine makes the characters unique and memorable
I spent a day doing spring cleaning listening to this book made me want to clean to keep listening!
Can't wait to see how Max and Carina and all the other characters are in book 4!
The story and the narrator.
The story is fun and keeps be interested.
I cannot wait for book 4!
FUN HOT SEXY
the art show
love Madeleine Maby, she is one of the best narrators. I think this was the best of the series but not to take away from the others because they were pretty awesome. Buy them all!!!
The mother showing up unexpectedly added a nice twist! I was wondering how they'd work in the "mistake" part of the marriage!
Easy and fast listen, I was disappointing that it was over so quickly!
