Midge Knightly is the daughter of a Hollywood producer of reality TV. She walked away from his family business because of what she found to be unreasonable expectations. That included her trust fund. Now she has lost her scholarship.
Her father is starting a new reality TV show and wants her as a contestant on Marry Your Billionaire. If she does that, she will be able to finish college because she will get her trust fund back. She agrees with the condition that she gets eliminated the first night.
Midge and her father forgot to take into consideration what their billionaire would want. Brody Prescott, the billionaire, has had one chance encounter with Midge and hasn’t been able to forget her. So when he has the chance to eliminate her, he chooses to keep her. The chaos that follows is something that would only be seen on reality TV. Will Midge and Brody find true love or will he choose another woman for his wife?
A wonderful, drama filled romance novel with many twists and turns. A good read for any lovers of romance novels.
Madelyn Knightly is the daughter of a rich and well known TV producer. She worked along side her father for many years, until their falling out. Since then, she has entered college, has a job and lives with a roommate. No longer living the lavish lifestyle.
By chance, she eaves drops on a conversation with the famous billionaire, Brody Prescott. He
is smitten...deep smit or some say instalove. Her...not so much. Madelyn, or Midge, wasn't impressed with Brody and not too shy about her feelings.
Sadly, Midge's scholarship has dried up and she strikes a deal with her father to star on his latest show "Marry Your Billionaire" for one night and be eliminated. in exchange, she gets her trust fund and will be able to graduate and become a writer, like she has planned.
Brody finds out about this arrangement and decides to throw Madelyn and her father, Corbin, a curve ball.
Madelyn is a caring person who thinks of others before herself. Midge meets with Brody's mother by accident at a local restaurant. There, she gets to know Blanche a bit and they hit it off. A bit later in the book, Midge talks about her feelings towards Brody's mother.
"Thoughts of Blanche and how she would react to the bad press her son might receive brought her up short. She stood on the threshold of the mansion, wondering what she could possibly do to protect Brody from whatever her father had in store for him."
I like how the author tells the reader, and ultimately shows the reader, how Midge is beyond the need to hurt others for her own gain.
I liked the flaws that the author included for Midge. They seem far too real to some women and not seen too often in characters these days.
"I'm allowing this to continue because of what I see in her eyes when she looks at you, Knightly said. midge does not trust easily. Most of her friends, boyfriends, and colleagues were interested in her because of her connection to me. your feelings for her may be genuine, but she's been a means to an end far too many times, and this little feud we've had over the years hasn't helped wither."
I liked how the author took her time in setting up the romance between the two characters. often times they are thrown together too fast but this book takes it's time in setting up the story, creating character development and then delving into the romantic feelings.
I didn't love how Midge was so wishy washy. She is the definition of indecisive. The mystery to the book isn't very deep but i didn't need it to be. I actually wanted to know more about some characters and their motives but after the big reveal the character wasn't mentioned anymore. Which at this point, they didn't matter, but I wanted to see more...perhaps even their downfall.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters and I enjoyed their antics on the show and in their reality. Be prepared for many pages of enjoyment. I took my time in reading this book and it took me four weeks to finish it. I didn't find that I laughed out loud while reading the book, like some did, but, at times, things were humorous. I enjoyed the flaws of the characters in this book. They felt very real and are relateable. I would recommend this book to those who love witty and fun romance books. The romance isn't cheesy and it isn't instant. This was a nice change. It gave me an opportunity to take my time and enjoy the story.
Content: mild language
I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The part I didn't like was Midge kept refused to believe Brody loves her. Brody kepr tried to chase her and telling her over and over, but she was very stubborn. The back and forth banter took up more than half of the story. I was hoping for more dramas among the contestants, but it didn't happened. At the same time, it was hard to believe her father blackmailed his own daughter for a rating for his show. What kind of father would do that? I also like to see some justice done to Liz (Charlene) for her involvement, but it didn't happened. I was a little disappointed.
Overall, I liked the story and would recommend to the readers.
I had forgotten just how much I love C.J. Anaya's works- besides being a great singer/songwriter, her "The Healer" series is amazing, and not gonna lie, when she said she had a book release (this one) I was hoping soooo much that it was the next book of "The Healer" series. If you enjoyed MYB, please go check it out!! These characters are so endearing and amazing.
The realism of the tv production and locales the contestants visit strengthens the book. It's a great light read,thoroughly enjoyable with its predictable HEA.
Still wish e published books had better proofreaders. Errors really disrupt the flow of the story and jar the reader from their revery.
You do know from the beginning that Brody is interested in Midge but there are twist and turns in this novel that adds unexpected surprises!
