(Reviewed by Ishita RC)
Madelyn ‘Midge’ Knightly has a famous Hollywood producer- father and a trust fund as a legacy. But instead of following her birthright, she stepped off the path six years ago to create her own name and destiny. And she vowed to avoid playboys.
Now her estranged father has asked for help. To get her trust fund back she has to pose as a participant in his reality show “Marry Your Billionaire”. Sparks start to fly on and off screen between her and the lead playboy billionaire, Brody Prescott , who i is trying to clean up his tarnished reputation. Can a reality show lead to happiness?
After a disastrous series of thrillers, I was glad to have this book for ARC. I know I tend to favour a lot of romantic books in my reviews, but honestly I like the ones which have the right amount of romance, chemistry and a little bit of drama. Marry Your Millionaire epitomizes that for me.
The lead characters are strong and have a personality that literally leaps off the page, while complimenting the smooth flow of the plot line. You can see the flair of the author from the way she has sketched the characters which is translated into her clear and strong style of writing. The strength of the character development definitely appealed to me since I like characters that have a strong personality and are sensible. The plot development is based on solid foundations, and the added elements of drama and mystery gives it a more solid definition.
The title is quite simple and straightforward and clearly indicates the main theme of the story. The cover image does look a little childish and reminds me of Ariel; I am not used to seeing a book of this genre depicted with such an image. I still can’t figure out whether I like it or not, but it surely attracts your attention.
I would definitely recommend this book. Not only will the witty humour and charming characters appeal to readers, but the intriguing mix of romance, drama and mystery is an added bonus.
