This was a great fake marriage story! Gus and Merritt were certainly not fond of each other at the beginning of the book and both seemed to have tempers that ignited quickly toward each other. I was happy that these reactions to each other transformed into a willingness to make the best of their marriage of convenience.
The way the relationship grew from two people living under the same roof, to a partnership, and then into a friendship was really nice. Then, when feelings of friendship began to grow into feelings that were much deeper for both of them, the story developed some truly swoon worthy scenes.
I really enjoyed the way these characters grew better together. Gus and Merritt were so good for each other. There was great chemistry between them and I loved seeing how both of them related to Gus’ family as they spent time with them.
I also really liked the first book in the series, Not the Billionaire, however, I loved this one even more! If you haven’t read the first book, you can still jump in and enjoy reading Who Needs a Billionaire.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A fake marriage is the answer to their problems, but love was never part of the deal.
Augustus “Gus” Schultz has always been the black sheep of the family, and he’s earned that label with his playboy ways. His greatest desire is to prove to his father that he’s put all that behind him and is worthy of taking on a bigger role at Schultz Chocolate. But when he’s asked to step away from the company for appearances’ sake, he must devise a plan to convince everyone he’s changed.
Merritt Christiansen loves helping women feel pretty and confident, and her dream of taking her safe, organic cosmetics line global is about to come true. Until she doesn’t secure the capital she was hoping for and is forced to consider a crazy alternative.
Gus thinks his proposal is ingenious. A fake marriage contract with Merritt, who is brilliant and respectable—not to mention beautiful—will demonstrate his ability to commit and fit in with the company’s wholesome image. Merritt thinks he’s lost his mind, especially since they can’t stand each other. But how can she refuse when he offers to fund her business expansion as part of the terms of their marriage? And if pretend crosses the line to real, how will they come away with hearts unscathed?
