Rae reads... Marry Your Billionaire by C.J. Anaya
About the book:
Six years ago, Midge Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.
Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled two months before shooting.
Midge gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Midge's cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from, but no trust fund equals no college degree.
Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged as a heartless playboy-among other things-by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date.
Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and hope that one of the contestants holds some potential. So what is he supposed to do when the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated?
Both characters were charismatic so they were instantly likeable. Midge had a fiery nature but was also kind. I enjoyed seeing how Midge's relationship with her father played out. Midge had some great one liners such as:
"Sweet maple syrup"
These cute sayings made Midge even more adorable!
Brody was perfect as the love interest, I thought it was great how at the start I assumed he was a bit of a womaniser. Although as I read more of the book my opinion changed. Midge and Brody had great chemistry and I loved their interactions with each other. There were definite sparks flying whenever they met!
There was lots of fun and passion (kissing) in this story and it grabbed my attention straight way. I loved the premise of the reality television show and finding love through that. I got caught up in the story and read for quite a while before I realised it had gotten quite late!
The plot was well written and was easy going with no slow bits. I enjoyed reading this book from both Brody and Midge's point of view it was great to see how each character was feeling. It was also interesting to get an insight into what the villain of the story was thinking too.
After reading Marry Your Billionaire I would be happy to read more books from C.J.Anaya.
Marry Your Billionaire is a fun journey into reality television with a charming romance at it's heart!
Four and a half stars from me!
