Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans comes a hot romance about two strangers and their race to fall in love.

If someone had bet Nell a million dollars that she would be saying “I do” to a complete stranger on national television, she’d have called them crazy, but with her crushing student loan payments sending her deep into the red, she’s out of options. This should be nothing more than a business transaction - until she sets eyes on her groom, and everything changes.

The game is on the instant Luke spots Penelope “Nell” Carpenter. He’s out for the money, yes, but getting a little dirty with Nell doesn’t sound too bad either. Everyone knows he’s not the marrying kind, so it’s a good thing it’s just for show. God knows he’s the worst guy his pretty wife should pick for real.

They have nothing in common, but if they want the grand prize, they’ll have to beat out eight other couples. Proving that total opposites attract should be easy enough...as long as they don’t fall in love in the process.

Really enjoyed

Really enjoyed this book. Had on my wish list for a while but kept putting off purchasing as reality tv thing put me off. However it made for a different story line in a sweet romance. Yes it is predictable as are most in this genre but definitely worth a read. Narrators were great too!

Review: Million Dollar 2: Million Dollar Marriage

Million Dollar Marriage by Katy Evans is the second standalone story in her Million Dollar series. Told in dual POV between the hot alpha bar-owner Luke and the book smart career student Nell. Add in a reality show competition, a marriage and a series of challenges where they must work together and this book is equal parts hilarity and sizzling sexual tension. We previously met Luke in Million Dollar Devil as the best friend of Jimmy and owner of the bar in which Jimmy has his "office". The premise was unique, the story was very well-written. I felt so very frustrated with Nell and her judgements in the beginning but it's a testament to how she grew as a character through the taping of the reality show to get to where they have their Happily Ever After. Katy Evans is a must-read author for me and this story is just another example of why. Enjoy!

The narrators were top notch. They really embodied the characters and made the reading fun - I was switching back and forth with Whisper-Sync and really enjoyed the performance over my own voices in my head :-D

million dollar read!

I was not sure how I was going to feel about this book. I'm not a big fan of reality dating shows. They don't spark my interest. So I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish this book, but once again Katy has pulled it off. This book was superb. I even listened to the audiobook after reading it. Who would have thought Mr.Luke Cross, rough around the edges and Penelope Carpenter, a bit of an uptight bookworm would make the perfect couple? Financial troubles bring them together. Fate ties the knot. Nell and Luke Clash from the moment they meet, but the challenges they face change everything for them. Things get a bit muddy, but they are in it to win it.

Fun premise, good characters, especially Luke

I really liked this book but i have to be honest, I was worried at first because I didn't like Penelope aka "Nell" aka "Penny" at the beginning. She was a bit whiny and a little too snobby. It was fantastic, though, how the author made her grow throughout the book. Luke was pretty awesome from the beginning. Even then, he was protective of Nell and looking out for her and his character made me continue the book even when i was a bit annoyed with Nell in the beginning. Overall, the premise was interesting (reality television where the contestants have to get married and then compete in a race) and we got to revisit the characters from the first book, which was great (you don't have to read that one to understand what happens here but it was so great, you should!). I also listened to the audio for a bit and the narrators were great. I've listened to Jacob Morgan before and he was excellent as expected- good pacing, great ability to play multiple characters. This is my first book with Meg Sylvan and she was also great, playing the different characters well. I thought they did a good job revealing the emotion of the characters.

I loved EVERYTHING about this audio!

From the get go I was hooked! I loved the premise, the build up, the overall pace of the story, the chemistry, the stakes, the amazing narration from both narrators and the twists and turns. I have absolutely nothing negative to say!! It has been a while since a story felt so addictive and urgent and I loved every minute of it!!

Million Dollar Marriage

We met Luke Cross in the first book in this series but now we really get to know him an WOW do we get to know him. He is deeply in debt and that is how he ends up waiting to audition for a reality show. Penelope Carpenter has her doctorate and more student debt with no job to help pay it off than she knows what to do with. She could have gone the easy direction and let her parents pay her way and gone to Harvard but that is not what she wanted instead she moved to Atlanta and accumulated one degree after another until she is out of options. That is how she ends up at the audition. Who would have figured she would have been picked to be one of the contestants but she is and now after the first show she is actually married...married...to Luke. Over the next two weeks they work together as they travel the world and fight and fall in love. They say opposite attract but do not last but also soulmates find each other and these two are definitely soulmates. They complement each other. Loved this one!

I really liked Luke Cross

I gotta say, I really like Luke Cross. He’s overcome a whole lot, loves his grandparents, works hard and denies himself the one thing he truly wants. But she’s under his skin and and that’s just downright exasperating.

She’s extremely intelligent but has avoided really living. Her books are her safe place, and she resides there at all costs.

A match made in heaven?! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 No, most definitely not. A match? Yessiree! Oh, the battles are quite entertaining and the denied attraction even more amusing. But what happens here is about growing up, accepting your flaws and loving yourself. You can’t truly love another until then.

Truly enjoyed this book!

Super good and totally sweet on so many levels!!

I enjoyed this book so much. I loved how they took a chance on each other. I loved how he helped the nerdy girl see who she really was and she came out of her shell and blossomed. The story line was great I loved the adventures kinda survivor/amazing race style… It was great!! Glad I got to listen..

Love the series

I can actually say at this point that you can always read a good book with Katy Evans, this book is fantastic, Nell and Luke story was amazing. Nell is a smart girl but let's just say she has some issues. Luke appears in her life and their relationship begins within a TV reality show, opposites attract romance is one of my favorites and to see their journey it just made this book a great read. Absolutely a must read.
