Maria Martinez has worked hard to care for her younger brother, Joey and ensure he stays out of trouble and doesn’t end up with the wrong sort of friends. She’ll do anything to keep him from ending up like her twin brother, Tito who was wrongly imprisoned. So it seems like a dream when she meets Richie Perez, a sweet, sexy attorney who volunteers to help those in need. He’s the perfect role model for her little brother. Soon Maria doesn’t just want Richie for her brother, she wants him for herself. That is until she learns Richie is the prosecutor who put Tito behind bars. How can she love the man who tore her family apart?
Maria and Richie are complex, well rounded people that you want to root for. Their backstories and motivations are rich and multi-layered. Peden is an expert at drawing the reader into the story world. I can’t wait for the third book in the series.
Maria and Ritchie’s story is multi-layered. Maria’s backstory is powerful and grabs a hold of the reader. Taking us on a journey with Maria and her little brother Joey. When Joey takes a path that is similar to Maria’s older brother she is willing to do whatever she needs to get him back on track. While she loves her older brother she doesn’t want that life for Joey.
When Ritchie steps in as guardian Maria’s attraction to him is something she must put on the back burner for her brother’s sake. But she is also worried that Ritchie’s world isn’t reality and that it will be a bigger issue for Joey in the end.
The Millionaire's Convenient Arrangement is a thoughtful novel that will engulf the reader and not let go until the last page. There is passion, angst, tension, drama, twists and turns and sizzling scenes. I loved the multi layers of Maria and how she was protecting Joey. I thought that Ritchie was very realistic in his mannerisms. I loved the build of Maria and Ritchie’s relationship and how Joey played a part. I look forward to Jane Peden’s next work.
I liked how you saw Ritchie’s and Maria’s relationship grow and it wasn’t just an inst lust kind of story and I really liked that. I really liked Maria’s character and came to like Ritchie after a while. I did like how Ritchie stepped in. this story had a good plot and i enjoyed the characters lot. I liked the ins and outs of the story and I recommend.
Ritchie Perez is a successful attorney, and one of the partners of his law firm. Thanks to hard work and talent, he has become wealthy, but he never forgets where he came from and intends to give back to the community. In his spare time, he volunteers at his parish’s night soup kitchen to feed the homeless. His volunteer work is also the perfect opportunity to spend time with another volunteer, Maria Martinez. Her feisty and generous personality fascinates him. She has a lot on her plate, though. After her parents’ death, she was forced to drop out of college and work two jobs to pay the bills and raise her younger brother, Joey, on her own. It’s no mean feat, her brother is hanging around with the wrong crowd and she is worried about him. She is reluctant to accept Ritchie’s help, but she won’t have any other choice when Joey really gets into trouble.
Ritchie has had an impact on her life in the past. Several years before, Ritchie was an ambitious assistant state attorney prosecuting drug-related crimes. And he showed no mercy to Maria’s older brother, sending him to prison. Maria has to come to terms with her conflicting feelings towards Ritchie. She is attracted to him but she can’t forget he played a decisive part in her brother’s conviction. He is controlling, bossy and can be ruthless but he is also generous, kind and protective of her. He encourages her to follow her dreams, to find her own path. Can she put the past to rest and give their story a chance?
I loved everything about this heartfelt, uplifting and beautifully written story, with some angst and all the feels! Ritchie and Maria are great, complex and multi-layered characters, they give this book its irresistible emotional pull. Although it can be read as a standalone, I’ll definitely read Ritchie’s partners stories!
