Blurb: Who said marriage had to be convenient?
LA party planner Poppy Collins has kept her side business—planning divorce parties as the Divorce Diva—under wraps, but keeping her sister’s company afloat is proving tougher by the day. When a new divorce party prospect gives Poppy the opportunity to save the day and boost her bottom line, she can’t pass it up. But this time, she’s about to get way more than she bargained for…
Vegas golden boy Beck Blackwood knows Poppy’s secret, and he’s not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants—a wife. With his reputation and corporate expansion plans on the line, the only way he can repair the damage is by getting hitched, and fast. And if blackmail is the only way to get Poppy to the altar, then so be it…
But they’re in the city of high stakes, and Poppy has a few aces up her sleeve. Now it’s time to find out if they’re playing to win…or if they’re playing for keeps.
REVIEW:If you enjoy a good marriage of conveninece story, have I got one for you!
I love the sass of this book. The heroine, Poppy, is a real trip. She's fierce, independent, sassy, fun, and devoted to her sister. Hence the reason she's started a fairly contraversial business. But she'll do whatever it takes to help.
Now, Beck...at first, I didn't like him! Bossy, rude, stuffy, emotionaless...I wasn't sure how I'd get through the story with his attitude. Little did I know he had a wall up and there was a better side to him. Poppy brought that out. Despite the fact that they are married for reasons so far other than love, the two are intensely attracted to the other. The sexual tension in the book SIZZLES!
I loved how things worked out. They were resolved slowly and the pace of this story only got better and better in time. I'm hoping that Poppy's sister ends up getting a HEA in her own story, because she deserves one.
Not the Marrying Kind is a book about opposites, and how one thing leads to another, leading two non-believers to true love.
