Review: The Marriage Bargain by Stepanie Dees

the marriage bargainI have enjoyed the entire Family Blessings series. The Marriage Bargain is book four in the series and could probably be enjoyed as a stand alone if needed. Just be aware that all of the other siblings and their families from previous books do have scenes in this novel and many interactions with the main characters.

I loved this story! It is a marriage of convenience plot, which is one of my favorites. Juliet and Cam were such likeable characters who both struggled in the way they viewed themselves.

Juliet was a planner and had some perfectionist tendencies. She really wanted to know that she was doing her best in all situations and sometimes took on more than she could handle. Cam had some very different struggles. He was well aware that he was not perfect. It was actually the opposite for him. Because of the way he was treated and abandoned as a child, Cam thought that he wasn’t worthy. He also carried fear of future abandonment.

I loved the way these two fell for each other, even when they hadn’t planned on it happening. It wasn’t smooth sailing for them, even though they were kind and cared for each other. The love they showed for the little children they wanted to adopt was beautiful. The Marriage Bargain was one of my favorite books in this series!
