My book boyfriend and giveaway: Max from The Marriage Mistake by Jennifer Probst


Welcome to another week of My Book Boyfriend co-hosted by little old me whilst the amazing Missie from The Unread Reader is studying hard at school.
 
 
This week's book boyfriend is Max Grey from Jennifer Probst's The Marriage Mistake he's a business man, a little bit stubborn and a whole lot of gorgeous.

Max is Carina's older brother Michael's best friend and business partner, Carina has had a crush on Max since she was a teenager but now that she's all grown up she is finally allowed to comes to America and work for the family business. Max hasn't failed to notice that Carina is all grown up but she's very much off limits. Michael requests that Max trains up Carina to take over the running of the family business and when they are forced to go to Vegas for a meeting they agree to have a no strings attached one night stand which goes horribly wrong when Carina's mother finds them together. You can check out my review of The Marriage Mistake here.
 
Here's some yummy yummy Max quotes:
   
"His body was lean and trim, and his impressive height always added an intimidating demeanour that was an edge with most of his deals. His face reflected the image of a demon and angel caught in a love affair. Sharp cheekbones, an elegant nose, and a graceful curved brow held hints of aristocracy. The sexy goatee hugged his jaw, accented the plump curve to his lips, and bespoke pure sex. Thick, coal black hair fell in untamed waves across his forehead and set off the rocketing blue of his eyes."
  
"You really are a bastard, aren't you? Christian Grey has nothing on you." He laughed with her. "My name might be similar, but I'd never say "Laters Baby""
Her mouth fell open. "You read it!" He looked offended. "Saw it on Twitter. Now don't piss me off or I'll torture you with Cool Whip."
Carina wondered if something was wrong with her. The idea sounded a bit too interesting."
 
"His heart broke. This beautiful, spirited, giving woman believed she wasn't worthy. The urge to strangle her or kiss her warred inside him. Instead, he swallowed past the tightness in his throat and told the truth.
"You succeeded at everything precious in this world, Carina. People. Animals. Love. Nothing else matters, you know. But you just don't see it."
 
I've loved this series it's provided me with three book boyfriends: Nick from The Marriage Bargain and Michael from The Marriage Trap and now Max! I think that's a record and it just goes to show how fantastic the Marriage to a Billionaire series is. So, I thought I would have a little international giveaway. All you need to do is fill in the rafflecopter thingy at the bottom of the post and you can win your choice of book from the series. Good luck!

  3. My favorite contemporary this year was Teresa Medeiros' Goodnight Tweetheart. It was such a refreshing change from everything else I'd read this year.

    Thanks for the chance to win this book. I bought the first two & they're near the top of my To Be Read pile. Can't wait to get to them!

  16. I had never heard of this author until I read your reviews on this series. I have to say I am very intrigued because last time you steered me to a new author I was blown away by Ruthie Knox's About last night.
