This was a fast read that I ended up loving. I loved that it was under 300 pages and I could get through it in about 2 hours or so. I loved the characters and the story and I really thought it was interesting that book two isn't from the same author. That is something I haven't encountered before!! I finished this all in one setting and loved the pace and the story and the characters! ...more

I love Marie Ferrarella books. They're a simple read that doesn't take too long to dive into the plot and enjoy the characters. However, in this book, I found that some of the character traits that defined Marlowe were contradicted by her actions. She an executive in her family's corporation. To me that means, she plans ahead and can easily find solutions to problems that may crop up at work. Her reaction to events that changed her own life, seemed to contradict this making me question her choic ...more

This is going to be a good series. I’m looking forward to reading the next few books. It does end with unanswered questions as some book series do. I normally hate cliff hangers, but this one’s not too bad. The Colton and Robertson families have been rivals for a long time. At a conference Bowie Robertson, and Marlowe got caught up in a deep conversation, that let to a bottle of wine, that ended with the two sharing one passionate night together. Both are shocked to find our Marlowe is pregnant. ...more

First off, it’s quite an accomplishment to have 300 books published – so, congratulations to Marie Ferrarella for that milestone. I’ve enjoyed her storytelling over the years and I hope there are many more stories yet to be told to come.

Now, on to Colton Baby Conspiracy. In this new Colton family spin-off, we are dropped right into the action as Marlowe discovers not only that her one night of passion with Bowie, the son of her father’s vowed rival, resulted in an une

Marlowe and Bowie are arch rivals that want nothing to do with eachother. That is until one night that changed everything and now they are expecting a child. If that wasn't enough there's a threatening email, and a stalker issue.

Oh geeze with the way this book just ended, I'm gonna need the next one asap.

There is so much to love about this book, from the characters to the family drama and the threatening messages. Its enough to keep the readers on their toes wondering what would happen next. I

First in the Colton's of Mustang Valley series in which Marlowe becomes CEO after Ace--the older brother she's always looked up to--is found not to be a Colton by blood and thus cannot be CEA. Oh, and she's now pregnant with the baby of her father's arch rival's son. Oops.

But who sent the incriminating email about Ace? And who shot their father, leaving him in a coma? Just two of the questions without answers at the end of the book.

I wanted so much more from this book. Unfortunately, I didn't love it. It felt like a lot of the plot was added for shock factor and the characters were a bit too back and forth for me. I usually really love enemies-to-lovers stories but this one fell a bit flat for me.

An easy read. Lots of characters to learn. Not sure I like any of them... family dynamics are messed up and a whole lot of siblings are added at the end.

I enjoyed. I'm not crazy about the fact that many of the problems don't get solved at the end of the book. It's like a serial on TV with all kinds of underlying issues. I enjoy recurring characters but not underlying problems. ...more
