Hot bachelor seeks bride…
Resort tycoon Trent Hawthorne is looking for a wife. His all-business, no-nonsense grandmother (and the matriarch of the small town of Maple Creek) has selected three potential brides―all beautiful and approved. Each “fantasy date” will take place in a lush Caribbean setting, filmed like a reality show to promote the Hawthorne family’s chain of resorts. All of Trent's hopes for love combined with a clever marketing gimmick…what could possibly go wrong?
As it turns out, all it takes is a kiss. A sizzling, sweet-as-sin kiss. But Cynthia Sawyer isn't one of the bachelorettes, and she's definitely not supposed to be making out with her boss's sexy grandson. Not to mention it's strictly against company policy. But Cynthia has her own reasons for hooking Trent up with a bride who isn’t her as soon as possible. And losing her heart is a price that she's willing to pay…
I received an eARC of The Marriage Match from the publisher in exchange with an honest review.
This was a short, quick, and a kind of predictable read with a known ending from the start.
I expected to enjoy this much more, but I think that Smitten novels are not my cup of tea.
Although my favorite parts of the story were whenever Trent and Cyn were together;however,I found that their interest in each other was way too rushed.
I might wrong about this, but I like how Cynthia's nickname is Cyn (sin), which could also be Cinderella. This would fit the story perfectly.
I wish the author spared the novel a few more pages to describe more of the islands they visited because from what I have have read , it is just like heaven.
I give this 3/5 stars and a C- according to my own rating scale.
