I knew it! I knew the two would be the ones paired. Can‘t wait for this! Julietta is kind of serious and up tight while Sawyer is easy going and a womanizer. I‘m sensing a spontaneous combustion, yeah?

Hello readers, well what can I say this book was utter brilliance. It has everything that makes up a true five star book for my tastes. Great story telling, a touch of heart ache, terrific characters, steamy intimacy and a novel full of hand-on-heart romance, yet again this series has managed to take over my time and thoughts and I loved every page ...

The Marriage to a Billionaire series is light, sweet, fun, and sexy. I’ve enjoyed every book in this series, and this was no exception!
Julietta Conte’s entire family has settled down. Her sisters, her brother Michael, they have all found love. Julietta? She doesn’t have the need. She has her job running the family business and she is happy with that.
Why didn’t anyone understand or accept that a single woman could be happy? And she was happy. Damn happy.

Her family- mainly her younger s...more

”You’ve done proper already, and it hasn’t worked. It’s time you do dirty.”

Hallelujah and yes please! Julietta Conte’s a hardnosed, serious and family oriented businesswoman. And don’t you forget it! Her orderly, structured and non-orgasmic life works just fine for her, thank you very much! When her sister repeatedly begs her to send out a call to the universe (as all her sisters have done via love spell) for the right man to come her way, her list forms quickly.

In the final installment of the Marriage to a Billionaire series, we have Julietta, the workaholic older sister. She has been prepped since she was very young to take over and run the family business, La Dolce Famiglia, so she takes her work very seriously. Unfortunately, that has let her love life slide and become almost nil. At her younger sisters urging, she decided to go ahead and do the love spell thinking nothing will come of it. That is, until she is approached by Sawyer Wells.

I have read the first three in this series but do not remember them being as hot as this one. It was a great end to the series. Really liked the first three and this one was no exception.

A tortured hero, Sawyer, grew up tough and fast. Brought up in the foster care system and it was not good.

Julietta, oldest daughter of the Conte family. Tough, hardworking, beautiful. She has been hurt in the past and is afraid to love again. She thinks she is frigid as she has never really had a very good sex l...more

He should be the poster board image of what to avoid in teenage pregnancy. The balance between light and dark was just enough to tempt a female to jump over the edge of reason, no matter how hard the recovery from the fall. Fortunately, Julietta despised heights and avoided them at all costs.


This was the 4th and what I thought was the darkest installment in the Marriage series.

I know that when I pick up a Jennifer Probst book, I am going to get a fabulous, romantic, sexy, angsty, love story that makes me smile when I get to the last page.

All the Conte siblings are happily married, except Julietta, the sad, lonely workaholic who has been burned by men in the past and has never been sexually fulfilled. She has imposed a wall around her so that no man could climb it. She runs the family business in Milan.

Before I start my review, I just want to say that the real Bad-ass Hero of this whole series was Mama Conte. Emma almost made me to wish that I have a mother like Mama Conte, i think you can guess why i`m saying it if you`d read this series ;)

TMM is the best way to end this series and i just can't imagine another way for it to reach it's final destination. It's a story about fighting the demons of the darkest past, the horrible truth of the life yo...more

I requested this book on Netgalley, thinking it would be a light, sexy read. Instead I learned that:

1. Only billionaires are sexy. It's not enough for a man to make six figures and take you on an all-expense-paid trip to Tahiti. In order to be truly fuckable, he's gotta be able to buy a small country.



2. Three things make a man desirable: money (covered that one already), status, and a fucked-up childhood. If he wasn't beaten/abused/scarred/victimized in some fashion as a kid, he'll never...more

The Book of Spells was making its magic again! Or is it Momma Conte who is truly responsible for all matchmaking in the Conte family? It’s hard to tell, though I have to say that Momma Conte has a very strong persuasive mannerism about her that none of the characters in this book can refuse. Just like Julietta’s siblings, she and Sawyer did not stand a chance. Both are stubborn, high-strung , and business minded who decided relationships or love for that matter is not in their future. But of co...more

All of Julietta's sisters have found wedded bliss. Julietta has decided that she would rather focus on work and being successful running the family bakery. Her sister encourages Julietta to do the family love spell. Julietta believes this is ridiculous but does it anyway because she is lonely.



Sawyer has a past and he is determined to make his future better. He doesn't let people in. Ever. Sawyer has made a life for himself and he is determined to make his hotel chain the most exclusive around. H...more

Another fantastic book in the Marriage to a Billionaire series!I really enjoyed Julietta's story! Loved Sawyer!!! He had a raw edge to him and was scorching hot!!! I also adored Wolfe! I am hoping he gets his own book! I think his book would end up being my favorite! :)

Teaser #1:
“Hell of a bike for a hell of a rider. Mind sharing how you learned to handle that thing let alone know what it can do?”
Pride etched her face. “My brother Michael raced cars on the circuit. His love of good and fast machinery extended to motorcycles, and I got hooked. He was kind enough not to tell me good girls don’t ride bad bikes and taught me everything he knew.”
Sawyer shook his head and took a long slug of water. “Nice. Most women overcompensate for their lack of brute strength. B...more

This was my favorite book of the series!!
(could have been the awesome buddy read too... LJ makes everything better!)

What is better than an easy, sexy, romantic, heartbreaking, loving moments?!?!

Sawyer and Julietta. Wolfe. Mama Conte. They each played a great part in the story and were a very strong cast of characters.

Some of my favorites:
"I like to use a hands-on approach. In all aspects."
"Let's put that mouth to better use, shall we?"
"You'll have to beg long and hard before I give you what y

I'll admit, I was a bit reluctant about Julietta's book. Out of all the Conte's, she has been the hardest to warm up to for me. However, after reading her book, I'm happy to say that I love her and she couldn't have found a better partner in Sawyer!

I remember Sawyer from Carina's book and I loved him then. I didn't think he was right for Carina, but I loved him. He's definitely an Alpha male through and through. He's worked hard to create his business empire, but his past has remained...more

“You’ve done proper already, and it hasn’t worked. It’s time you do dirty.”

Some people watch re-runs of Sex and the City, some people indulge in chocolate comas… one of my guilty pleasures happens to be a Jennifer Probst book, and especially her Marriage to a Billionaire series. Each one of the instalments so far has been like a little piece of heaven for this HEA addict, and this last instalment of a truly beloved series did not disappoint. The Marriage Merger has all the trademark qualities...more

uugh, I hate doing this, but here it is.

This book really fell flat for me. The characters, neither of them did I really like.
I couldn't connect with them. I found that I couldn't care less what happened with them.
I skim read, I skipped pages, because to be honest I got bored.
This is so awful, I know that this is not everyone's response to this book, so maybe this can be put down to my mood etc.

I did push through and I did end up finishing the book, but I had the same lacklustre feelings at t...more

I changed my original rating from 4 to 3 stars. The reason is simple. I think that the books have lost their appeal and especially this one. Mama Conte is the Soren in the Marriage to a Billionaire books. Sawyer is one of the people I liked in this book. A plus is that Probst always makes her book in a way that we can see the other couples from the previous books. Wolfe must get a story for himself because is my second favorite character in the book and he deserves to find his soulmate. The end...more

Can't wait for this next book! When I met Sawyer in book 3 I knew he would be paired up soon and I thought of Julietta immediately. If they're the next pair it's going to be explosive indeed since they're such opposites :)

JP did not disappoint. Great way to end the series and introduce new characters for the spinoff series.

Feeling overwhelmed.... A perfect ending to the Marriage to Billionaires series...

My review:

Fiiiinallyyy finished the last book of the series. Yeayy…

1st half was so and so…. Why? Too much x-rated stuff that I do not care to elaborate.

2nd half… Now… that really changed my point of view of Sawyer… Interior and Exterior clashes 100%. This is why they say, Never Judge a Book by Its Cover or in Sawyer’s case, Never Judge a Man by Sexy Suit and Attitude. He may appear to be an Alpha male thru n thru...more

Is this the final book in the series?

If yes, it is not as satisfying as expected.
The chemistry is OK, but the marriage does not sit well on me. The way they got hitched with each other due to the mother's interference is really not well executed.

Julietta does not need a marriage to have a wonderful relationship with Sawyer.
And Sawyer does not need to be forced for marriage. It clashes with his personality somehow.

3.5

This series is like candy for me. I don't know why, but I really enjoy them. And this installment was no different.

The Marriage Merger follows Julietta Conte and Sawyer Wells. Both have ties to characters from previous books. Julietta is head of her family's very successful bakery chain and she has no time for love. Especially after having failed relationship after failed relationship where she always seems to come off as the frigid, broken one. Sawyer Wells has made quite a name for himself...more

This series has been awesome! I enjoyed the fact that the whole series surrounds the Conte family and has to do with each of the siblings. They each have had their own book and their own seperate love story.

Julietta is bad ass! *no lie* She doesn't take any crap from men, she is the head of the family business AND she rides a bike! Not a I need to chain up my bicycle so noone steals it bike, but a two wheel, engine revving, machine of steel! I LOVED IT!!! She has had a hard time with men in the...more

I love this series! Who wouldn't want to marry a loving yet a bit broken billionaire.

For Julietta she is a fiercely strong woman who doesn't need a man in business or in her personal life. So much so she thinks she is broken because no man can give her what she needs until she meets...



Sawyer who happens to be an up and comer billionaire with a bleak past but a big heart.



Thank goodness for Mama Conte and her meddling ways and forces J...more
