The fourth book in the Marriage to a Billionaire series, The Marriage Merger, totally kept me at the edge of my seat. I just had to finish it before the day ended. Having read the first three books in the series, this would probably be the best yet. In terms of the tone of the story, this one was edgier with more sexual scenes, some BDSM elements and more flawed characters than previously seen in the series. The main elements that bind the series like the Book of Spells and Mama Conte's way of matchmaking are still very much present. While the clever and witty comebacks, one-liners and repartee did a great job in showing that both Sawyer and Julietta are both smart and definitely used to getting their own way type of people. This book is almost raw in the portrayal of both characters sensuality and vulnerability. For some readers the plot is almost ordinary but the author was able to portray both characters exceedingly well creating a tale about two people with a whole lot of baggage falling in love and learning to deal with it.
Her sisters have found wedded bliss with their wealthy,wonderful dream men, but not Julietta Conte. She’s stayed on terra firma as top executive of the family’s corporation, La Dolce Famiglia bakery. Work is her passion, and her trendy Milan apartment her sanctuary . . . until Sawyer Wells, a masculine masterpiece in a suit, lures her out of hiding with an irresistible offer: an exclusive partnership with his international chain of boutique hotels.
Julietta’s been burned before—and trusting her brother-in-law’s friend, whose powerful gaze alone has her rethinking the best use of a conference room, is the riskiest proposition. But with a once-in-a-career chance to take the bakery global, will she mix stone-cold business with red-hot seduction?
