Leaving her small town behind, Bethany Casse moves to Chicago in search of a new life. Working at a top financial bank brings her into contact with two men who are as different as night and day.
Kent Plack, heir to Plack Industries, has no interest in being with a woman for longer than one night. A spoiled and lazy man-whore, he is completely content with his playboy lifestyle, and Beth is surprised when they form an unlikely friendship.
Brian Burcham, a finance banker, is gorgeous and respectful. A man plucked from Beth’s dreams, he is definite husband material. Unfortunately, Beth has a hard rule against dating coworkers, but Brian is determined to change her mind.
When a deadbeat mother and money problems follow her to Chicago, Beth is offered a solution that could fix everything. Marrying for money seems simple enough, but when lines become blurred, Beth faces difficult choices, making her realize that the easy way out just made her life even harder than before.
Ah, a contemporary romance. This is exactly what I need right now! A cute story, wait…love triangle? Hmm. We’ll see how this plays out…
It was just so damn cute!!! Marry Me For Money had a really slow start but it quickly starts to pick up! This was a well written romance novel with a little twist, and it’s probably not the twist you’re expecting! I couldn’t put it down, I legit read it in one sitting late one night. I could feel my eyes starting to burn with tiredness but I NEEDED to know how it would end!! Although predictable at times, I highly enjoyed the plot! And the characters! I instantly loved Kent, yep I did<3! As for Brian, well you know that saying “nice guys finish last“? Well, they really do. I honestly wasn’t that into his character anyways so it worked out perfectly for me! Oh, and for Bethany as well ;).
- Nothing I would consider bad.
- A little bit predictable at times, and I wasn’t a fan of how Kent was portrayed at certain points. But that’s it!
Overall, Marry Me For Money is a cute contemporary read! It’s one of those books that I can picture being turned into a movie and would be perfect for a girls night in! If you’re looking for a well written, ‘just friends but little do they know’ kind of romance I highly recommend reading this!
