Jennifer Probst - The Marriage Merger #4

  ★★ 4,9 of  5 Stars

Blurb as seen on goodreads:

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?

Marriage to a Billionaire Series by Jennifer Probst:

I love this series!!! 4 short-ish, sexy and cute Romances!

Book 4 was the best one so far - in my opinion. I loved them all - but this one seemed a bit MORE, more grown-up, darker, more serious and it made me cry a few times.

In Milan, Italy we meet Julietta Conte. 

We met her in the previous books in the series - where her siblings found their true love. Now it's her turn - only she doesn't really want a man. She's happy with her life - running her family's Bakery Empire. Love life? She's been called frigid by some ex-boyfriends. And since she kind of agrees with that, she decided to just give up men and sex entirely. 
Enter - her sister's Love-Spell book. Just to stop Carina from getting on her nerves she follows the steps in the book and writes her 'Dream-Man-List'.

That's when Sawyer Wells comes calling - we met him in book 3 in Las Vegas - he's a good friend of Carina's Husband Max.

He is about to start a chain of luxury hotels - PURITY - and he wants Julietta's Bakery! The moment they meet - business is NOT what he's thinking about. He immediately notices her submissive tendecies - hidden behind her tough CEO persona, and he's very intrigued. Because of his sad past he doesn't do relationships, he doesn't do love - he believes love does not exist. I won't say anything more about his past - he'll tell you himself!

Julietta doesn't want to admit that she's also attracted to him - that's how they end up making a wager, while out riding their motorbikes:
One kiss - and if she doesn't feel anything, he will back off. 

This wager turns into another, bigger one: One night - and if Sawyer can't give her an orgasm, she has full approval over anything to do with her Bakery La Dolce Famiglia in his hotels. That's a bet she can't resist. She loses, of course - but you need to read the book to find out how ☺ and what happens after that. I don't like to spoil too much!
I only want to tell you a few little things ;) ....

- We learn a lot about Sawyer's past, his sad and lonely childhood and teenage years, and how he came to be a billionaire.

- We meet Julietta's family again - we're having dinner at her Mama's house ☺ I soo want to go and have dinner at Mama Conte's!

- As the title of the book already suggests, there will be a marriage - and of course, like in the previous 3 books NOT a planned LOVE-marriage at first. But we'll get there of course. 

- The most important 'thing' we come across in this book - is Wolfe! He was the best part of the book - he's a 19-year-old kid that Sawyer took off the streets. He gave him a chance at a good life. And again I won't tell you too much about it. I can't wait until we'll see him again once he's all grown up ☺☺☺

I really loved the book - it starts a bit slow - not much happening at the beginning - but lots of sparks are flying when Julietta and Sawyer are in the same room! 

If you're a fan of sexy romances - this book is a MUST-READ!

I would suggest you read the first 3 books before reading this one. You don't have to - but pfff why shouldn't you??
