Jennifer Probst's Marriage to the Billionaire series has seen me add her to my contemporary romance author auto-buy list I've enjoyed them all so much.
Carina Conte is the baby of the family, she's had a crush on her brother Michael's best friend and business partner Max for what seems like forever so when she finally comes to work for the family business Max can't help notice that she's all grown up. Carina is keen to play it cool but wants to finally have a little fun and romance in her life and Max is determined to keep his hands off Carina knowing full well that head of the family Michael will likely kill him off for daring to touch his baby sister.
When they are forced to go on a business trip to Vegas, Carina and Max finally give in and agree to have a one night stand on the understanding that what happens in Vegas will stay in Vegas. However, when Mama Conte turns up and realises they've slept together she craftily shames Max into marrying Carina. Her complete manipulation of Max and Carina made me laugh, she knows they will be good together but are too frightened to make a move so she makes it for them in a mama knows best kind of way.
Max is a fantastic romantic hero, he's a bit of an alpha male but has his own insecurities as a result of his upbringing and his position in the Conte family business which he believes is not secure because he's not quite family. I love Carina's character, she's all heart and isn't quite cut out for the cut throat world of business, it's only with Max's encouragement she finally admits what she really wants to do in life and it isn't crunching numbers or sacking people. As Carina's confidence grows she realises she only wants to be in a relationship with a man who truly loves her, but can Max finally admit what he really feels for Carina or will he be too late?
I've loved the whole series it's romance at it's best!
