REVIEW - The Tycoon's Socialite Bride by Tracey Livesay
Release Date: 10 February 2014
To avenge his mother's mistreatment at the hands of her upper-crust employer, self-made real estate tycoon Marcus Pearson needs entree into their exclusive world. When D.C. socialite Pamela Harrington comes to him for help, Marcus realizes the golden admission ticket he's been seeking has suddenly fallen into his lap.
Pamela will do anything to save her favorite cause, even agree to a marriage of convenience. The altruistic "it-girl" isn't worried about the pretend passion with Marcus turning real; she's sworn off powerful, driven men who use her for her family's connections.
So she'll deny the way her pulse races with one look from his crystalline blue eyes. And he'll ignore the way his body throbs with each kiss from her full lips. Because there's no way he'll lose his blue-collar heart to the blue-blooded beauty.
My Opinion 3.5 STARS
This is a book with a modern day marriage of convenience where they both marry to get something they want from the other. For Marcus its the name and old blood that Pamela has, whereas for Pamela she wants one of the buildings he owns.
Both characters evolve in their own way, Marcus has to understand that his mothers past and vindication does not have to be his focus and Pamela has father issues.
Although you can see Markus's faults he is upfront and honest with Pamela, however, Pamela is a little too squeaky clean for my liking, I know she has had her issues, but something to show that she was like the rest of us would have been nice.
Both characters warm up to each other very quickly and the lust overtakes them into becoming something more than what they had originally bargained for, and it helps that they both liked what they saw from the first moment.
Its a feel good read from the Entangled team where we get another HEA.
