    This sweet romance is the story of Trent and Cyn Trent comes from a wealthy background and manages his family s Caribbean resorts Cyn works for his grandmother back in the United States, a woman who has planned a Bachelor type ad campaign for the resorts with the added benefit of getting Trent to choose from three women she feels would make a suitable bride for him Cyn s job is to help with the ad campaign with the added bonus that she ll receive extra money if he chooses a woman among the This sweet romance is the story of Trent and Cyn Trent comes from a wealthy background and manages his family s Caribbean resorts Cyn works for his grandmother back in the United States, a woman who has planned a Bachelor type ad campaign for the resorts with the added benefit of getting Trent to choose from three women she feels would make a suitable bride for him Cyn s job is to help with the ad campaign with the added bonus that she ll receive extra money if he chooses a woman among the three, something Cyn sorely needs to help out her parents But when sparks fly between Trent and Cyn, will she be able to go along with the dating plan without giving away her burgeoning feelings for Trent in the process I really enjoyed this story Both Trent and Cyn were such likeable characters down to earth, friendly, and fun loving types Trent agrees to his Grandmother s plan to combine the ad campaign with finding him a wife but finds himself attracted to Cyn for her beauty and her generous nature Cyn was equally charming and torn between her feelings for Trent and doing her job They share some sweet kisses and there is definite chemistry between them The secondary characters added camaraderie and mild tension to the story as Trent hatches a plan to win over Cyn at the risk of thwarting his grandmother s grand scheme I loved the setting used for the story, the Caribbean islands complete with sunset beach walks, summery clothing and warm tropical breezes that the reader could practically feel I was thoroughly charmed from beginning to end 4.5 stars Note a copy of this story was provided by the publisher for review

    If you like sweet romance that takes you away on a whirlwind adventure, you have to read The Marriage Match by Tracy March It s the third book in her Suddenly Smitten series, but can easily be read as a stand alone Tracy writes fabulous characters and puts them in a well planned out story to keep the pages turning She also does a fantastic job of describing the exotic locations in which her characters travel You feel the warm sun, the sand beneath your toes and the water crashing against you If you like sweet romance that takes you away on a whirlwind adventure, you have to read The Marriage Match by Tracy March It s the third book in her Suddenly Smitten series, but can easily be read as a stand alone Tracy writes fabulous characters and puts them in a well planned out story to keep the pages turning She also does a fantastic job of describing the exotic locations in which her characters travel You feel the warm sun, the sand beneath your toes and the water crashing against your legs just like the characters I loved every minute of this story.In The Marriage Match, Trent s grandmother has this crazy idea to play matchmaker, film his dates and use it as an ad campaign for their resorts, which he runs She picks three women for him to meet and spend a day with all in hopes that he will fall in love and they will get a great ad campaign out of it Her assistant Cynthia is assigned to make sure everything goes smoothly As you can imagine, things don t go as planned.Trent is a very swoon worthy hero He is not your typical alpha male and has so much substance to him something Cynthia is learning each moment she spends with him He is not the rich kid she thought she knew growing up I fell for Trent when I learned how open he is about his feelings and desires In my opinion, this is quite a change in romance novel alpha males Cynthia is awesome heroine I love her selflessness, her sense of adventure how she takes a lot of pride in everything she does from working for Trent s grandmother to helping him find his true love to working with her friend at the bakery She is all in when she commits to something.Tracy writes another lovable contemporary romance in The Marriage Match I started the book trying to figure out how things were going to happen but was quickly sucked in and along for the ride The pages kept turning and the story moves along at a great pace Tracy does a wonderful job with the romance aspect of the story, too It was sweet, romantic and very fitting for the characters When I finished the book I actually hugged my ereader and let out a big, happy sigh If you are looking for a sweet romance with captivating characters and a fun story, I highly recommend you give The Marriage Match a try
