Jennifer Probst - THE MARRIAGE MISTAKE   
★★★★★ 4.9stars
(Marriage to a Billionaire #3) 

Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: her family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.

Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off limits. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand—and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable—and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed….

I loved it - for what it was: a pretty short, cute and sexy romance.
I loved the fact that everybody from the previous 2 books made an appearance - well - more than one ;)

What's it about?
Carina has been in love with her brother's best friend forever - but he's 8 years older - that's why he always saw her as a little sister - at least that's what she thinks. Now she's 26 and he's a commitment-phobe serial dater. And she's NOT the little sister anymore.

And on a business trip to Vegas - things happen - a little bit too late for my taste - the title of the book happened pretty much towards end of the book? ☺

      ....and then...... we have a Happy End, of course....

Oh and for all Fifty Shades Fans - there were a few tiny FSOG-mentions in the book ;)

I'm looking forward to book 4 and Sawyer's story!
He seemed rather interesting when he was introduced to us in Las Vegas :)

#4 - THE MARRIAGE MERGER  - release date: July 30 

Her sisters have found wedded bliss with their wealthy, wonderful dream men, but not Julietta Conte. She’s stayed on terra firma as top executive of the family’s corporation, La Dolce Famiglia bakery. Work is her passion, and her trendy Milan apartment her sanctuary . . . until Sawyer Wells, a masculine masterpiece in a suit, lures her out of hiding with an irresistible offer: an exclusive partnership with his international chain of boutique hotels.

Julietta’s been burned before—and trusting her brother-in-law’s friend, whose powerful gaze alone has her rethinking the best use of a conference room, is the riskiest proposition. But with a once-in-a- career chance to take the bakery global, will she mix stone-cold business with red-hot seduction?
