Todd Aston III's reputation as a playboy preceded him; he wore power as seamlessly as he wore his custom-cut suits. But Marina Nelson had promised her sister--who was marrying Todd's cousin--that she'd help him plan the perfect wedding. And somehow, between tasting cakes and modeling wedding dresses, Marina discovered that she wanted Todd--and that Todd wanted her. She was ...more

3.5 Stars Loved the story, didn't like the narration. I say it again, I don't understand why the same person didn't narrate the entire series. It's not that the narrator was unintelligible, her voice didn't fit the characters or was soft enough for certain moments in the plot. Her voice is better suited for a harder, edgier read. I don't know if that makes sense. The "voice" she gave Julie, Marina's sister, made her sound like a man...sheesh! Not good!

Okay so with that out of the way the story
Todd and Marina. As per the rest of the series, their meeting relies on the machinations of matchmaking Ruth. She is Todd's great aunt by marriage, and Marina's estranged grandmother. But stuff has happened and even though neither has any intention of liking the other, they are forced to meet at long last. Marina is a super smart girl (the youngest sister) who fears marriage will destroy her as an individual. Todd is used to dealing with gold digging swindlers and doubts there are any women out ...more

Awalnya saya berpikir kisah Mariana dan Todd akan sama dengan kedua kakaknya, Julie dan Willow. Tapi ternyata hubungan Mariana dan Todd lebih asyik untuk diikuti.
Pada dasarnya mereka berdua beranjak dari perasaan saling tidak menyukai gara2 isu satu juta dollar itu. Tetapi seiring dengan kedekatan mereka karena menjadi wedding organizer untuk Julie dan Ryan, mereka saling mengenal satu sama lain dan ternyata bisa klop. Paling lucu adalah kejadian mereka keracunan krim saat mencoba makanan yang

The Ultimate Millionaire

Fantastic story with lots of surprises. Love won out. In the ending they came to their senses. Love won out.

That was a mediocre book with an incredibly awful hero. When the heroine has a pregnancy scare (side note, omg, how are all romance novel heroines unable to use birth control), the hero accuses her of trying to trap him with a baby. Seriously? Seriously. Seriously? No.

Hmm.. aku baru tahu kalau buku ini ada tiga. #kemana aja lu
Hihihi, iya sih, aku iseng aja baca buku harlequin, biasanya genre seperti akan luput dari pengamatan. Tapi setelah membaca, terlepas dari dua seri sebelumnya, ku beri tiga bintang.

Awal-awalnya sangat membosankan menurutku--untuk ukuranku yang meluputkan genre roman--tapi semakin ke tengah, ceritanya lumayan bagus kok.

Singkat reviewnya, Marina Nelson yang ditugaskan oleh kakaknya, Julie Nelson, untuk merencanakan pernikahan Julie bersa

The Ultimate Millionaire by Susan Mallery

This book is a recent re-print that was first published in 2007. It can be read as a standalone book even though it is part of a trilogy.

This very sweet novel is an extremely fast read. M In it we get to meet Todd Aston the Third and Marina Nelson. Marina’s sister is marrying Todd’s cousin and Marina and Todd have been asked to plan the wedding while the sister and cousin are in China for a few weeks. During the planning of this semi-formal wedding, we ge

Mungkin karena sejak seri pertama Todd sudah memperlihatkan sikap yang menyebalkan, membuatku tambah kesal aja sewaktu hubungan cintanya dengan Marina akan membawa konsekuensi….eh Todd bener-bener menampakkan sifat aslinya yang sinis dan curiga. Kasihan Marina…

Setelah baca ketiga seri ini, ada yang terasa menggelitik dari seri ini, yaitu Jack Nelson, duuhh…kok ada ya suami/ayah yang suka menghilang, meninggalkan anak dan istrinya berbulan-bulan…..lalu nanti muncul tiba-tiba. Apa sih kerjaannya J
Just decent. The end just didn't fit.


This was probably my least favorite of the three. I just didn’t like Todd and Marina together. Too much baggage.

Planning Ryan and Julie’s wedding was just unrealistic in my opinion. What bride would do that? So Todd and Marina are force to collaborate, but Marina’s preconceived notions about Todd turn out to be false and the two get along well.

Todd has been to jaded by women being after only his money and with the money on the line to the siste

This is the third book in the Million Dollar Catch series. This is Marina's story. Since Julie and Willow found men, Grandmother decides that Marina should marry Todd. She says she will not throw in the money but Marina is kidding and tells her it's okay. She will take the money. Julie and Ryan have to go to China for 6 weeks for work so they ask Todd and Marina to plan their wedding. Julie does not think that Todd will actually do any work, since he is a woman hater. But he is right by Marian's ...more
Marina Nelson has just been roped into helping her sister plan her wedding. Julie is going on a trip to China right before the big day and (especially before the internet was so huge) begs her sister to step in and help. Marina readily agrees until she figures out that the best man, Todd Aston III (does that name create a clear picture or what?), is going to be the one helping her. She doesn’t know Todd per se, but she knows the type. Rich, playboy modelizer who doesn’t have a thought in his hea ...more

We can not always control our feelings, and sometimes our fate conspires in a different direction we want. So it will not be so easy for Marina and Todd become immune to love, even though some raids and do not understand sometimes.

They will have to find the balance between what they think and what they really feel for each other, and get put aside misgivings and fears which have to trust someone and give herself totally to the heart asks.

The Million Dollar Catch 03

Não gostei de Todd desde o primeiro livro da série, agora ele até que estava indo bem, pelo menos até a metade do livro. Mas quando ele começou a ser completamente irracional, medroso e covarde. Que cheguei a ficar com dó. Que homem burro, sem noção.

E quando Marina o coloca em seu devido lugar é extremamente reconfortante. De certo modo, vibrei pela vingança em nome de todas as mocinhas maltratadas. Mas também fiquei triste

Alkitab mengajari bahwa cinta itu baik. Sarjana mengatakan bahwa cinta bisa mengubah sejarah. Ilmuwan mengatakan bahwa cinta itu sesuatu yg kimiawi. Pujangga berkata bahwa cinta itu abadi. Tapi cinta sejati lebih dari itu semua. Cinta adalah tentang percaya mengambil risiko. Cinta adalah berkomitmen untuk selalu ada untuk seseorang dan percaya bahwa orang itu akan ada untukmu. Cinta adalah tentang bertahan selama perjalanan kehidupan yang seperti roller coaster. Cinta adalah memiliki keyakinan, ...more

The Ultimate Millionaire, #3 Million Dollar Catch series
by Susan Mallery

Conclusion (and weakest) of this series. Marina & Todd Aston III. The main characters were likable but the conflict and resolution near the end were unbelievable. I also REALLY did not like how Marina's sister, Julie, and their grandmother, Ruth, meddled. They shared private information about Marina and Todd with others and interfered in ways that were pretty unforgivable. That in itself kind of ruined the story for me b

4.5 Stars. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one at first... but then I really got into it. It was sweet. The books in this series are quick reads - I read all 3 of them in 3 or 4 days. Cute stories... but Marina did get on my nerves with her comments about Todd's wealth. We get it. He's insanely rich. What did she want him to do? Give it all away and live in squalor just to appease her? The first few comments about it were fine... it just got old. Other than that, I liked the book!

This is the third book in the Million dollar Catch series by Susan Mallery. I will recommend reading them in order as the storylines flow all the way through to the end. I was waiting for Todd's story from the beginning. He was a character you could tell was a nice guy who had been hurt. Marian was the last of the Nelson sisters left for sweet grandma Ruth to try to get to marry Todd, little did she know or should I say either of them knew that maybe Ruth was right. Sadly old demons and insecuri ...more
I listened to The Ultimate Millionaire on audio and enjoyed the book and the excellent narration. The story was more typical than the second book in the trilogy, The Unexpected Millionaire (which was my favorite of the three books), but it was still enjoyable despite being predictable.

Interestingly, all three books in this trilogy were narrated by different people, but all three were quite good readers.

Rating: 4 stars. i just love millionaires and the pretty ladies who can bring them on their knees. fast paced romance but still showed how their relationship grew from friendship to love. im also curious about the other 2 sisters’ stories so i’ll be searching for the other books. the only letdown of this book is the TMI discussion of the sister’s sex lives! it’s so kiss and tell. i wish marina had left some parts to herself and todd. oh and ew.. i just saw the cover of “todd” and so not what i h ...more

Ntah kenapa Todd kok menyebalkan ya, mulai dari buku 1 sampe buku 3 ini tetep aja rese. Gw sama kya Marina, berpikir mungkin nih cowo d bener, eh giliran ada kasus dikit, curigaModeON-nya kambuh lagi, capek juga lama" ngadepin model cowo kya gini. Dari 3 buku yg ada, ntah kenapa paling gw ga suka yg ini. Mgkn krn karakter mereka berdua sudah terbangun dari mulai 2 buku sebelumnya, dan bukannya makin bikin penasaran, ketika membaca yg ketiga ini justru berkesan anti klimaks, jd kurang sreg :(
it was okay. I can't believe she is the pregnancy thing again for the second time in the series. I know this is one of her shorter books but I really feel like they did not have enough time to really get to know each other to fall in love. I think the thing about the short romance novels is that you really miss the love growing naturally. The author has to tell you that they're in love, instead of the reader being able to see that they are in love.

I actually went back and listened to the other two before listening to this one. I know. I know. I'm sick.

There were just a few too many "didn't see that coming" (to be read sarcastically) moments in this one for me to fully enjoy it. I liked the characters. I think this sisters would have been my second favorite if I could have just gotten past the plot.

Hey, it was on sale at audible for less than $3 and I have no will control!
This was the last in the Millionaire trilogy, and it proved to be just as good as the first two. The characters were well developed as they had been present in the first two books so the reader knew more about them than had this been a stand alone book. The onle down side is it was a bit predictable but it was a fun escape to read before I have no time to read once c,asses star back next week.

While the chemistry between Todd and Marina was fun to read, it was hard to become immersed in this story. Todd was a bit too men's rights activist for my liking, and it was hard to believe that he was a successful businessman considering the only times we saw him was in the context of wedding planning. The whole story seemed a bit...small?

its really 3 1/2 stars ...highly predictible.. it feels almost thrown together. almost. lol
I will admit that Todd and Marina's interaction was witty and i did enjoy it.
i still say book 1 is best out of the trilogy. however, this one is good to past the afternoon.....but not at $4.89 for 121 pages :-(

Another great book by Susan Mallery. My favorite from this series was book 2, but I still really liked this one, especially because I didn't like Todd at all in the first book and I didn't know how I felt about Marina in the other two books. I think Susan did a great job of making me like these to characters.
