The Professional Bride

About the book: Early on, Pamela Jones realized she had an unusual talent for putting two people together. Over the years, she's turned it into a successful matchmaking service for the ultra wealthy: Billionaire Marriage Brokers. While she specializes in "business" marriages -- paring people off because of their skills, education, or training -- she can spot a potential love match a mile away. When Pamela has a "good feeling" about a bride and groom - a business marriage can become so much more. 

Amber Appleby is not the blushing bride. She makes a career out of being a wife—a business wife that is. After signing divorce papers with her third husband, Amber’s looking forward to a few months in a tropical location when Pamela calls her into the office to ask a favor. Pamela explains that her life-long friend has passed away leaving a world-class ski resort and extensive financial holdings to his grandson, Rym, with the stipulation that he marry a BMB bride to coach him through his first year as a billionaire. Amber’s up for the assignment but Rym turns out to be a maverick—and a gorgeous one at that. Amber’s skills as a life coach are tested at every turn right along with her heart. Faced with a law suit that could wipe out the resort Rym’s grandpa built from scratch, Amber has to decide if she’ll protect her marriage or the thing Rym loves most. Marriage was much simpler when love wasn’t involved.

My review: I am really loving this series. I love the premise and I love that each of the books are about a different bride and groom. This book was a little different than the other two I've read in this series in that the bride, Amber, has already been married three times. I loved her character, I thought that she seems to be down to earth and real, perfect for the handsome, but independent Rym. 

Another thing that was a bit different about this one was that it wasn't Rym's choice to have a bride from the Billionaire Marriage Brokers, he was happy on his own, but his grandfather wanted him to have a bride to help him through his transition from really having nothing to being a billionaire with a business to run. This causes more than a few problems for Rym and Amber, leaving the reader wondering if they'll be able to work out their problems, or if they will have to cancel their contract early.

I love that these books are completely clean, no need to worry about being ambushed by a bedroom scene. 

This is a fun series, perfect for a winter day when you want to read and escape to a different place!

I bought a copy of this book from Amazon.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…
