The Marriage Mistake by Jennifer Probst

Book Description:

Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: her family still treats her like a

child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.
Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off limits. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand—and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable—and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed….
My Thoughts:
This was an entertaining read.  Carina has always been in love with Max.  Growing up he was her big brother's best friend and always treated her like a sister.  Now that they are all grown up and he is to be her mentor in the family business no matter how much the attraction between them zings!
I liked Max.  He was strong, sexy and has issues!  He never admits to how much his father's abandonment effects him.  Carina is tired of being in the shadows of her siblings.  She doesn't believe she is as pretty, smart or capable as any of them but she just doesn't realize her talents are different than any of theirs.  The twist in marriage is good and I like the family interaction throughout the book.
I rate it a 4/5.  It was a pretty good romance read!

  1. It was steamy, funny, and mama added the twist! I liked this book the best out of the 3 books but looking forward to the next one. I loved Max and their banter. Fun story as more characters are included.
