I liked that this wasn't your typical Millionaire story where he falls inlove at first site and they are on a fairytale journey. Ritchie a/k/a Prince Charming wasn't so charming. There wasn't love at first site but there was attraction and he kept asking Maria out. Maria kept turning him down. She didn't have time to date. She was holding down two jobs, trying to raise her 13 yr old brother and keep him out of juvie. When she finally agrees to go out with Ritchie he was a bit of a je
So, hands up, I am not really a fan of any book which contains the words "millionaire" or "billionaire" in the title. It's not scientific but generally I find the believability quotient to be low and there seems to be a requirement to name check all the billionaire's possessions so that on occasion it can feel like a weird version of the TV show The Generation Game (for those too young or in countries that didn't have this show, the finale was for the winning couple to watch a conveyor belt of p ...more
When I came to start writing this review, I thought about the film ‘Shrek’ . . . not because the plot is in any way similar but it is, like Shrek described himself, like an onion - made up of many layers! The heroine is Maria Martinez, she is bringing up her younger brother, Joey, after her mother’s death and her twin brother, Tito, was imprisoned for being in a gang and drug related offences. The problem now is that she can see Joey starting to go down the same route as Tito and, although she l ...more

This book was just okay for me. At times I felt certain things dragged on, but other times it felt like time passed by too fast (Thanksgiving in one chapter and Christmas in the next). I think I needed to read more about their day to day interaction, where they slowly got to know each other rather than jump in time.

Overall not bad....I think it just needed more.

Jane Peden is a new-to-me author, and I’m happy I read this great story! I love her writing style and I found myself unable to put this book down. This story was well-paced and a very entertaining read.

Ritchie Perez is a successful attorney, and one of the partners of his law firm. Thanks to hard work and talent, he has become wealthy, but he never forgets where he came from and intends to give back to the community. In his spare time, he volunteers at his parish’s night soup kitchen to f

4 star Review of The Millionaire's Convenient Arrangement (Miami Lawyers #2) by Jane Peden
Jane Peden is a new author to me and I enjoyed her style of writing. When Maria meets the handsome and sexy Ritchie whilst volunteering at a soup kitchen, she has no idea how her life is about to change. In fact Ritchie is determined to swoop in and save the day and in doing so ensure that Joey, Maria’s troubled younger brother is taken under his wing and does not follow the path of his older brother Tito.

Ms. Peden made exceptional use of her God given talent for words by writing an eloquent missive about the power of forgiveness. Maria loves deeply and trusts somewhat blindly. Her heart is in the right place but when it comes to family her views are misconstrued. With one brother in jail and another breaking all the rules her life is anything but easy. When trouble comes calling, can a handsome stranger save the Day? Or will the secrets of the past destroy any hope of a future? Ritchie could be ...more

Netgalley ARC Review:

A pretty good romance, The Millionaire's Convenient Arrangement isn't your conventional, insta-love romance. I felt like there was a slow build up and there were some obvious obstacles in the path, but that just added to the story. The hero was a bit...rude and an ass at times but quickly turned around, especially with the type of heroin that was portrayed in this romance.

I like how this book was written and the plot was appealing to me for sure. I like the build up and the

Cinderella-esque fairytale with a Miami flair...

This was a first-time read of this author and I was excited for that first peak, not knowing at all what was in store. And, happily, Maria, Ritchie and Joey had a lot to share…

Maria was the guardian to her younger brother and things weren’t going well. As Joey got older, it became much harder to keep him on the straight and narrow. She had two jobs to work and little time to do anything but try to keep it all together. Unfortunately, things were co

I jumped straight into The Millionaire's Convenient Arrangement, book two in the Miami Lawyer series and can be read as a stand alone novel.

Richie Perez cut his legal teeth working as an Assistant State Attorney prosecuting gang members and drug pushers but now works alongside two partners in their private legal practice. When he meets Maria and her much younger brother Joey whilst doing voluntary work he takes the young boy under his wing and is attracted to his sister.

Let me start out by writing that this is a very interesting premise. I was glad that it didn’t take the whole story (or even half of it) for them to realize they shared a past, although it was brief, but very painful. I wasn’t sure where the story would go, but I was anxious to find out.
I crushed on Ritchie…big time. He’s tough, yet gentle, fair, and straightforward. I really liked Joey, too. He was your typical teenager, and his transformation was believable, especially for his age. He needed

Ritchie kept asking Maria out and she said kept saying no. Ritchie had met Marie at a soup kitchen where her and Joey volunteered. When Marie finally did agree to go out with Ritchie he acted like a jerk to her. But there was an attraction between them. Maria really didn’t have time for anything more in her life as she already had two jobs and raising her thirteen year old brother joey and keep him out of trouble. Maria’s twin brother Tito had been in a gang and was now in prison on some drug re ...more

I just couldn’t get into this one, folks. From the annoying heroine’s quick to start an argument and unwillingness to listen to reason or be happy about anything, to the constant back and forth arguing/bickering over how to deal with Joey, her younger brother, to the bossy hero’s past involvement in her twin brother’s prison sentence, and the looming over them future with predictable fallout when said brother finally gets out of prison, it started to feel like a poorly scripted late afternoon ma ...more

If someone could remove Maria from the book and replace her with pretty much anyone else I would have been the happiest reader in the world. I know her story and her situation wasn't ideal, but she was annoying. She was always complaining and she acted badly to Richie. Joey her little brother was an ungrateful child and materialistic. I know he is supposed to be just a kid, but I expected more after her almost went to prison. Tito, Maria's twin brother, was the only sensible person here. I liked ...more

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book.
Maria and Ritchie’s story is multi-layered. Maria’s backstory is powerful and grabs a hold of the reader. Taking us on a journey with Maria and her little brother Joey. When Joey takes a path that is similar to Maria’s older brother she is willing to do whatever she needs to get him back on track. While she loves her older brother she doesn’t want that life for Joey.

When Ritchie steps in as guardian Maria’s attraction to him is so

This was my first Jane Peden book, but it won't be my last. Love how in depth you got to know the characters, could literally feel Maria taking for Ritchie and vice versa. Really enjoyed the back story and how their lives had actually intersected before. It was so fun to see these two stubborn, opinated people fall for each other. Looking forward to Jonathan and Baileys story. I read this book through Netgalley. ...more

Enjoyed this but, man, Maria is one very frustrating main character. I like how the story ended though. And now I am interested in reading the first book of Miami Lawyers!

Ritchie is quite the dominant, bossy, alpha male, “then you’ll spend the night in my bed.” He tilted her chin up. “It’s about time we finished what we started.” I really loved this book, Maria was a stubborn, strong woman, and Ritchie was really quite bossy butbtheybfit together perfectly.
