#Review: THE MARRIAGE FIX by Sandra Edwards



5 of 5 stars

This story focuses on the only girl in the French de Laurent family. Lecie inherited the bulk of her late uncle's estate including a fabulous ocean front house in California. Now that she's independently wealthy in her own right, she's thrilled that she can finally stretch her wings a bit and get out from under her controlling father's influence. She takes to living in California like bird to water and is having the time of her life. She has even developed a crush on a local hunky bartender, Nick Matthews. The only bad part in the equation is that Nick is set to marry within days. When Nick learns that his so-called "love" has embezzled all his money, he calls off the wedding, but is now in serious peril of losing the one thing he treasures - his restaurant. A young woman with plenty of money and a young man who needs lots of it is the perfect set-up for THE MARRIAGE FIX.
 

I adore Ms. Edward's writing and her latest novel does not disappoint. Nick oozes sex appeal and Lecie can't help but fall for him, but make no mistake, Nick is a good guy. I even fell for him - that's how real his character became for me. The author is masterful at creating sexual tension between these two as well as misunderstandings and longing. The secondary characters were rich and added so much to the story. You can't go wrong reading the Billionaire Games series. Each book is a treat in their own right, but put them all together and you've got swoon worthy characters. Highly Recommended.
