Book Blurb from Goodreads

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 transaction—until 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 enough…as long as they don’t fall in love in the process

My Review

Million Dollar Marriage tells the story of Penelope and Luke are partnered in a reality show that is a mix of The Amazing Race and Married At First Sight. As a reality show enthusiast, I loved the premise so I was attracted by the blurb right away. The question to be answered is: Will they find love in the middle of the competition?

It has been a while since I read a steamy contemporary romance, and I guess that fact has influenced how much I loved this read. I have always been a sucker for enemies to lovers stories. I enjoyed the adventures and how these events change them from fighting to falling in love.

This book had the mix of a fast-paced plot and a slow burn romance that really ignited when it burned. Though it felt that I will not connect with the characters at first, they have grown on me and I enjoyed watching them get their happy ending.

All in all, a great read. Interested to read more books from the author.
