Hot bachelor seeks bride… Resort tycoon Trent Hawthorne is looking for a wife. His all-business, no-nonsense grandmother (and the matriarch of the small town of Maple Creek) has selected three potential brides―all beautiful and approved. Each “fantasy date” will take place in a lush Caribbean setting, filmed like a reality show to promote the Hawthorne family’s chain of resorts. All of Trent's hopes for love combined with a clever marketing gimmick…what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, all it takes is a kiss. A sizzling, sweet-as-sin kiss. But Cynthia Sawyer isn't one of the bachelorettes, and she's definitely not supposed to be making out with her boss's sexy grandson. Not to mention it's strictly against company policy. But Cynthia has her own reasons for hooking Trent up with a bride who isn’t her as soon as possible. And losing her heart is a price that she's willing to pay…
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
This was a nice story. For some reason, Cyn’s attitude towards her employer right from the start put me off of her. After thinking she was a rude, ungrateful b–lady, it was hard for me to relate to her. Trent, the H, is a hot, accomplished, kind, sweet, super-rich guy. He runs his family’s resort business, and he really, really wants to get married. He just doesn’t have the time to know any ladies!! HA! Ok, so his Grandmother (Cyn’s employer) decides that they can kill two birds with one stone and film Trent going on dates at their resorts a la The Bachelor and make an advertisement campaign of him choosing a wife.
The Marriage Match was a nice read, but not being able to like the h took a bit out of my enjoyment. Trent was all hot and dreamy until he starts to sweat before standing up to his granny. I mean, what kind of alpha would do that? Not any self-respecting alpha, that’s for sure. So in the end, it was only an ok read. I’m sure many will find it a very enjoyable read from Ms. March.
