Summary: A marriage in name only...

To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend's older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.

Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.

A marriage in name only with certain rules: avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?

Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans…

Review: The Marriage Bargain was a very predictable Chic Lit. There’s not many other ways to describe it. Predictable plot that was centered on the romance and two characters that you know will end up together. Yet I did really enjoyed this novel up till the end.
Sometimes you just need a quick fun romance novel to cheer you up and that’s exactly what The Marriage Bargain will do. If you are looking for a well written chic lit that will keep you entertained for a few hours this is the book for you. It’s not a serious novel that will leave you thinking when you’re done.
The largest problem with The Marriage Bargain was the ending. It was way too quick and made me roll by eyes at the events. I hate books that end like this one does. However, I can’t say anything else or I would give it away.
If you’re looking for a quick beach read that is endlessly cheesy, this might be the book for you.
