Review: The Marriage Arrangement (Marriage to a Billionaire, #4.5) by Jennifer Probst

Today we are celebrating the release of THE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT by Jennifer Probst. This is a novella in the Marriage to a Billionaire series and it is part of 1001 Dark Nights.




From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new story in her Marriage to a Billionaire series. The Book of Spells returns in this sparkling addition to the series! She had run from her demons… Caterina Victoria Windsor fled her family winery after a humiliating broken engagement, and spent the past year in Italy rebuilding her world. But when Ripley Savage shows up with a plan to bring her back home, and an outrageous demand for her to marry him, she has no choice but to return to face her past. But when simple attraction begins to run deeper, Cat has to decide if she’s strong enough to trust again…and strong enough to stay… He vowed to bring her back home to be his wife… Rip Savage saved Windsor Winery, but the only way to make it truly his is to marry into the family. He’s not about to walk away from the only thing he’s ever wanted, even if he has to tame the spoiled brat who left her legacy and her father behind without a care. When he convinces her to agree to a marriage arrangement and return home, he never counted on the fierce sexual attraction between them to grow into something more. But when deeper emotions emerge, Rip has to fight for something he wants even more than Winsor Winery: his future wife.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

 don't understand why would anyone list this book as the 4.5th one in the series (that might change, but currently is #4.5). It's a prequel and none of the couples we know and love is together at the time. Alexa is a friend of Caterina's and Caterina visits the Contes. It worked quite nicely as a prequel and it got extra points for that. The story ends with Alexa getting the book and you know how that story goes

As for the characters, I feel like we learn who Caterina is from the very first few pages, but we learn who the real Rip is after he returns to the winery. I honestly wasn't sure if Rip was the man who fit all the criteria Caterina named in her spell, but once he went back where he belonged I saw that he truly was a man worthy of her. Of course, Caterina is also worthy of him. She explains early on why she left and why she never went back to her father.

Overall the story was good and I was a nice journey. After many years I revisited this series which is special to me and I am very happy that the author gave me the chance to do that. If you are familiar with the series you must read this and if you are not you can still read it and get into this world. It can be read as stand-alone so no worries. If you haven't read the series I would recommend to begin with this book.
