The Marriage Bargain - Jennifer Probst Almost a DNF. I came soooooo close to chucking this one, but I skimmed the last third of the book as I did want to finish. Overall this was a very underwhelming read. I love a great contemporary romance with steam, but this was too formulaic and lacked a decent story to keep me interested. The plot was just downright boring. I do like a marriage of convenience plot, but this was just too hokey as they keep going back and forth on their desires for sex. The heroine's need to lie was baffling, and the heroes sudden change of heart is a plot device so often found in bad fiction. While it had the occasional cute moments, I can't recommend this one, sorry.
