The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

Guys. Seriously, guys. I loved this book.
I've been wanting to read this since fall of 2012. See I saw it in the store one time and I was like oh shoot I have to have that. But in typical me fashion I in fact did not buy it.
I kept going back to the same store and seeing it but just didn't pick it up.
One day I decided that today was the day so I went to buy it...and it was gone. Of course.
THEN last August I was at a Goodwill and found the 2nd and 3rd books in the series! SCORE!
Unfortunately I couldNOT find the first book anywhere so I caved and bought it on my kindle. Oh man am I glad I did.
I read it in like a day people.
A stinkin day.
Ah so good!

What made me want to read this book is the plot. I've never in my life read a book like this. Never ever.
It sounded so interesting to me.
What's it about?
Oh right, it's about a girl named Alexa-who by the way is AWESOME-and a super hunky fella named Nick. They grew up together and Nick even gave Alexa her first kiss.
While Alexa remained best friends with Nick's sister the two of them lost touch.
Things happen and Alexa is in need of money...lots of money...to save her parents house. Conveniently enough Nick is extremely wealthy and is in need of a wife so he is able to take ownership over the company he works at. (Long story.)
Maggie (Nicks sister and Alexas best friend) hooks the two of them up when she finds out about their dilemmas.
After going over some rules the two decide to get married.
It's supposed to be just a marriage bargain but boy oh boy does it turn into so much more.
I definitely recommend you read this book. I thought it was amazing. Jennifer Probst is an incredible writer and this book had me literally laughing out loud in some parts and swooning in others. Alexa is an extremely relatable character and Nick is drool worthy.
