From New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans comes a hot romance about two strangers and their race to fall in love.

If someone had bet Nell a million dollars that she would be saying “I do” to a complete stranger on national television, she’d have called them crazy, but with her crushing student loan payments sending her deep into the red, she’s out of options. This should be nothing more than a business transactionuntil she sets eyes on her groom, and everything changes.

The game is on the instant Luke spots Penelope “Nell” Carpenter. He’s out for the money, yes, but getting a little dirty with Nell doesn’t sound too bad either. Everyone knows he’s not the marrying kind, so it’s a good thing it’s just for show. God knows he’s the worst guy his pretty wife should pick for real.

They have nothing in common, but if they want the grand prize, they’ll have to beat out eight other couples. Proving that total opposites attract should be easy enoughas long as they don’t fall in love in the process.

We already met Luke as James's best buddy in the first book. He runs his late grandpa's bar in Atlanta. And he desperately needs money to pay the bar's debt and his grandma's care facility.

Nell is almost done with her final degree. She has many of them - she's almost a doctor now. Not a medical one though. Not really a doctor anyone will give her much money for. She's not sure what she wants to do with all her degrees. The only thing she knows is that she needs half a million dollars to pay off her student loans.
A new and very mysterious reality tv show. The winner will get a million dollars.

Shy nerd Nell hates tv and people and being at the center of attention... but she has no other choice ....
Sexy tattoed Luke is alway the life of the party - he thinks it should be easy to win the money ...


I just loved it.
I wasn't expecting something so fun and sparky and adventurous and sexy and travel-y.
It's a bit like The Bachelor/ette meets The Amazing Race.
We travel from one amazing place to the next to find clues and master tasks et cetera.
I loved it. I loved seeing all the places and I loved seeing Penny and Luke go from fighting constantly to falling for each other. Extremely adorable! I finished it in one day!
Really great romance!

I wouldn't mind watching this on tv one day!

ARC received for an honest review

Married At First Sight meets The Amazing Race.

You do not need to have read the first book, Million Dollar Devil, to read Million Dollar Marriage - some characters do overlap, but the stories are stand along.

I enjoyed this story so much more than I did the first book. Yes, it was pretty predictable, however Luke made the story for me. Nell was - well, I gotta say I was not the biggest fan of Nell. For someone so smart, OMG she was such a dumba$$ and I wanted to scream at her to wake up to herself!

I am surprised Luke didn't just leave her at one of their "pitstops" - I mean, the money couldn't have been worth all of her annoyingness.

I did feel for her a little at the end of the story though, which surprised me.

I am not a fan of so called "reality TV" and this still has not endeared it to me at all - I know it is fiction, but we know all this stuff they do behind the scenes is all scripted and manipulated.

This was a fun romp through America with some laugh out loud moments, along with some sad and frustrating moments.
