Review of The Marriage Trap by Jennifer Probst

Welcome to a month of Lust and Love!!
I will be sharing a variety of books with you all surrounding the theme of lust, love and all that lies between. I will have some sweet romances, some childrens love books, and of course plenty of After Dark Steam for all different tastes! Hope you will all stop in and join me!

Synopsis: "Italian billionaire seeks faux fiancée. Willing to agree to anything in return...

In order for his sister to marry, Italian billionaire Michael Conte has to find himself a bride – and fast! When he learns that photographer Maggie Ryan is going to be in Milan, Michael hatches a plan to introduce her to his family as his “fiancée.” Never mind that Maggie is confident, independent, and a control freak. Never mind that she’s everything he doesn’t want in a wife… and everything he wants in his bed!

Convinced that Michael is in love with her married gal pal, Maggie agrees to keep up the ruse if he’ll keep away from her friend. Besides, she’s not attracted to charming, ridiculously hot billionaires who drive her nuts. Once they’re in Italy, however, everything changes – and the sexual tension between Maggie and Michael goes from simmer to naked nuclear meltdown!

But have they found the perfect arrangement… or are they trapped in a make-believe marriage?"

My Review: I was so excited to read The Marriage Trap and Michael Conte's story. I fell in love with him in the previous book. I was definitely not disappointed. He is everything I imagined him to be and more (I have a little thing for Italians). I also enjoyed Maggie, but Michael's family stood out for me. Parts of the story were a little predictable but still great to read. There were also some great surprises that I couldn't get enough of, including the final scene. I really enjoyed the whole story and again wish that these characters were my friends and that I could have Mama Conte teach me to make pasta from scratch!!
My Rating: Another great book by Jennifer Probst! I love the characters she creates so much! I give The Marriage Trap a rating of Four Paws.


  1. I've read every book in series so far and enjoyed every last one. Now, can't wait to read 'The Marriage Merger.'
