***Entangled Summer Read*** Not The Marrying Kind by Nicola Marsh Book Review

Who said marriage had to be convenient?

LA party planner Poppy Collins has kept her secret side business – planning divorce parties as the Divorce Diva – a close secret, but keeping her business afloat is proving tougher by the day. When her sister’s divorce party gives Poppy the opportunity to save the day and boost her business, Poppy approaches Vegas golden boy Beck Blackwood for help. But this time, she’s about to get way more than she bargained for…

Beck knows Poppy’s secret, and he’s not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants – a wife. With his reputation and business expansion plans on the line, the only way he can repair the damage is by getting hitched, and fast. And if blackmail is the only way to get Poppy to the altar, then so be it…

But they’re in the city of high stakes, and Poppy has a few aces up her sleeve. Now it’s time to find out if they’re playing to win… or if they’re playing for keeps.



HOLY GORGEOUS BILLIONAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Entangled has corner the market on Romances! Man oh man Nicola I LOVED LOVED this story so much that I read it in four hours!I have been reading a lot of romances and erotica and Entangled has the market on it right now! With all that rambling let me get right to the review.

Poppy Collins is a party planner when she decides to start her own Divorce Diva Party Planner Company. Why not right because everyone has a party for everything so why not have a party for divorces. She can make a lot of money having divorce parties but there is a catch. She will have to keep it a secret from her sister because she is going through a rough divorce and she would not approve of this side business Poppy has created. Poppy decides she will do Divorce Divas but keep her name anonymous and not tell her sister until they are out of debt. She receives her first client but he is anything but normal because he is a billionaire and he has done a background check on Poppy and the business and decides he wants to meet her in person even thought it against the rules.

Poppy does not want to meet this billionaire but in order to save her sisters failing business she will have to meet him and get the account. Only when Poppy meets Beck Blackwood playboy billionaire she is thrown for a loop. Beck is so enthralled with Poppy and her witty snarky attitude that matches his. He soon hatches a plan that he hopes Poppy will go along with. He tells her he needs a wife and she needs the money to save her sisters business. So she can be his wife so he can get the contract and then he will pay her to keep her sisters business running so it is a win win proposition except that Poppy is like HELL NO at first but then Beck used to getting his way blackmails Poppy and she agrees. But at what cost? Will Beck and Poppy get everything they hope to? Will Poppy save her sisters business? Will Beck get the big contract? Will true love come into play? Will broken hearts be in the picture?

Well to answer those questions you will have to read the book because I will give no spoilers away. I really loved this story and read it in 4 hours that is how good it is! Happy Reading and don't forget to check out the rest of Entangled's reads
