Source: Received a copy from eBooks for Review for an honest review

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.

His solution?

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.

His solution?

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?

Marry Your Billionaire is a fun, romantic romp set against the backdrop of reality TV. Throw on your PJ's, grab some chocolate and popcorn, and settle in for an entertaining love story.

I quit watching "The Bachelor" years ago but really enjoy stories with that theme. I think I like that the drama is over in a matter of hours rather than months, haha. And I feel like I actually get "reality" since I get to know who the characters truly are (yes, I do realize this is fiction and what that means).

Midge Knightly walked away from her father, a Hollywood producer, six years ago. She finds herself in a tough situation and needing his help. The catch? She needs to be a contestant on his new reality dating show, "Marry Your Billionaire." When she agrees, she doesn't know that the bachelor is Brody Prescott, a man she has met and doesn't care to get to know better. Brody has been wanting to get to know Midge better so this is the perfect opportunity for him. He has a plan but there are conniving females who are determined to win him over at all costs.

This book was pretty long, but it sounded like it had potential so I wanted to give it a try and I'm so glad I did! There is definitely some drama involved and Midge is at the center of it all. She has issues to work through with her father. My feelings towards him changed as the book progressed and I got to know him better. Two of the other contestants are in cahoots and trying to get rid of her. We know who one of them is right away and it's not surprising but the other one's identity is kept secret until almost the end.

Midge and Brody had great chemistry! He wasn't afraid to let her know how he felt and he got a kick out of her trying to run away from him all the time. She fought her feelings of attraction for him which was humorous. There were some twists which made it more dramatic, especially towards the end.

This book entertained me from beginning to end! Even though it's kind of long, I had a hard time putting it down and read it in two days. If you enjoy clean contemporary, bachelor-type romance, this is a must read! It's the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last.

I began writing short stories for family and friends when I was thirteen years old. My vivid imagination and love of mysteries and romances eventually led me to following my own dreams of becoming a published author. I also love to sing and write my own music. You can check out some of my videos on my amazon author page.

I'm a huge fan of The Mindy Project, Hugh Jackman, and binge eating any and all things chocolate. Who isn't, am I right?

As a mother of four awesome kids I'm usually playing beauty salon with my daughters (my four-year-old shaved my arm one time while I was helping another daughter with her homework. Yep. That happened) getting my fanny kicked in Mario Kart by my snarky little son, and making out with my deliciously handsome looking Latin lover, aka, my hubby.
