Married for the Millions is a story of two ex-lovers that are put in a situation that could benefit both of them. When Cody Mahone learns of his father's death and the fact that his father's trust of nine-million dollars was left to his giant of dog, Maggie, a sweet Newfoundland, his lawyer proposes an idea to him that could not only place that inheritance into Cody's lap, but also get some needed funding to Cody's ex and celebrity dog trainer, Shane Manley, for his large dog shelter. The plan is for Cody and Shane to have a whirlwind wedding in Vegas, and then they will inherit Maggie along with the trust.
What they thought would be a quick transaction, and a perfect situation, turns into a mess of extortion and blackmail from an unknown character (besides Shane's half brother). Also, the passion between Cody and Shane reignites when they're thrown into this situation. They had a less than amicable break-up three years prior, but they can't ignore the chemistry that is still there when they reunite, and what was supposed to be a fake marriage turns into something that they figure out they both want. They've matured in the three years they haven't been together, and Shane trains Cody to be around a huge dog like Maggie.
Shane's half-brother tries with everything that he can to prove that Cody and Shane's marriage is a sham, so he can inherit the dog and trust fund. But there's also an underlying entity that is fueling the rivalry.
While the story was enjoyable, it almost felt a little rushed. It was fairly predictable in certain parts, and there seemed to be a bit of immaturity especially with Cody. He thinks he's grown up in the three years that he and Shane have been apart, and in some aspects he has, but I also had to keep in mind he's only 23-years-old, and he still has a lot of growing up to do. And Shane, although he got over some of his insecurities, he still has some that could prove to be difficult in a marriage.
All-in-all it was a sweet story with some mystery in it, and a love that was rekindled and realized for a second chance that although started as a marriage of convenience, ended up being what the two needed most.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book
It was an interesting take on a trope that’s been done over and over. Cody and Shane didn’t exactly have the greatest breakup but it wasn’t the worst considering they left the relationship still having feeling for each other. The timing was just bad and maturity wasn’t there considering there’s a seven year gap between the two. They both wanted different things but three years have pass and Cody knows what he wants. Shane has also opened up his eyes and seen that he wasn’t exactly blameless in their breakup three years prior. I liked that the two reflected about their behaviors and how they each played a part in how their relationship ended previously and were making effort not to make such mistakes again. In Cody’s case he was trying to be more considerate whereas Shane was more understanding of Cody’s behavior.
It was fun seeing them get to know each other again and work together to make sure the money went into the right hands and for the right cause. Mitchell’s nonsense with trying to discredit Cody was amusing. I was a bit vexed on Cody and Shane’s behalf but the end result was nice. I liked that the bad guy got his just desserts.
An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
