Peek Inside Merger to Marriage

Holt’s been unable to forget the woman he shared one night of explosive passion with. Meeting her again at a house party ignites immediate feelings of need and desire. Mayson McBride jumps at the chance for a single night of no-strings-attached passion with Holt Turner. But when their night together produces a child, both must decide what matters most. Especially when a threat from Holt’s past promises to ruin their relationship before it’s barely begun.

Real estate magnate, Holt Turner, has earned every penny of his multi-billion dollar empire. Born into a family of thieves, he’s spent his adult life focusing on the art of the deal and putting distance between his birthplace and the rarified world he now lives in.

Mayson McBride never thought she’d see her partner in one night of passion again. Little does she know Holt’s not going anywhere and is looking to keep Mayson to himself. But when Mayson’s family connections put them both in contact with an old-school businessman Holt’s been wooing for years, she impulsively implies a fake engagement between them to help him seal the deal.

It’s only when she discovers she’s pregnant that the ruse begins to seem all too real. They need to decide if this is one deal worth making a lifetime commitment for.


"This is another light quick read that is very enjoyable! Last night I was craving for some pregnancy romance and this book hit the spot!" -- Alpha Possessive Heroes

"The story is well written and the characters are well defined. I formed an immediate connection with both Mayson and Holt, in addition to the secondary characters." -- LJT, Goodreads

4 heart-warming stars!!

Yup, my CR streak continues with Merger to Marriage by Addison Fox. This one was a pleasant surprise. The premise had been done before but it was done really well by Ms. Fox. The dialogues are witty, fun and believable.

Mayson met Holt at her sister's wedding. There was instan ...more

Four Solid Stars! I received an ARC for Merger to Marriage by Addison Fox. This is the second book in the Boardrooms & Billionaires series. I am a fan of Addison Fox and enjoy everything she writes and this did not disappoint.

This book centers on Mayson McBride and Holt Turner. Mayson is part of a t ...more

I loved this book! It was so good I read it in one day.

One of my favorite types of romance is when the two main characters launch into a marriage of convenience (for whatever reasons) and fall in love in the process. Merger to Marriage fits the bill perfectly!

The story is well written and the charac ...more

By Shatarupa May 24, 2018

It was a short and light read, with no dragging around. I have read one book by Addison Fox in the Harlequin Intrigue imprint till now, and I loved that. And this one's much better, it straightaway jumps into action! The camaraderie between the McBride sisters is lovely. I couldn't believe while rea ...more

By Latochia May 28, 2013

I loved the chemistry between Holt & Mayson!
What started out as a one night stand, became a journey of discovery for the two. They were both dealing with issues that made them question their ability to be the right match for the other. The surprises along the way kept the story interesting.

Please note: I received a copy of MERGER TO MARRIAGE via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the publisher and author.

MERGER TO MARRIAGE gets 5 stars and here is why:

It’s a fresh take on the familiar unexpected baby trope. When Mayson and Holt hook up, it’s clear their different ...more

By Bette February 02, 2018

What a nice surprise this book was. I was expecting the usual unexpected baby trope but this one packed quite a few more punches. Mayson and Holt definitely come from different families but where one family's problems are blatant the other's are hidden but no less painful. Due to their family issues ...more

By Denise March 04, 2018

This is one of those second chance romances that give you the feel goods as you read. This author is a good one because she does know how to bring the romance to life using her characters to do it. This one centers around Mayson and Holt with you connecting with the story right away. You sink into i ...more

By Jamie November 08, 2018

I have known Addison Fox for almost two decades and was elated when she finally put her imagination into writing. I have read many novels from her various series and highly recommend the Alaska series. Her books are always a smooth, easy read with likeable characters who are relatable. You'll find t ...more

By Katrina July 10, 2018

This book was a little cheesier than the first one. Its not 100% realistic, but its nice to read an fantasy outcome and sometimes those outcomes do happen to some people. Like the first in the trilogy, its a good quick read and has intriguing peaks. ...more

By Karla February 01, 2018

Good book. Loved it all. Holt and mayson are made to be together. Ok maybe not at first. They both are strong willed and let anger get in the way. But they push past it and compromise for name of Love. ...more

By Laura February 05, 2018

This second book in the Boardrooms and Billionaires series can definitely be read as a standalone. I haven't read Tempting Acquisitions yet but after reading Mayson and Holt's story, I definitely want to.

Mayson and Holt meet at her sister's wedding but since neither knows who the other is, they thin ...more

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

Mayson McBride has never been one to walk on the wild side. However, when Mayson meets Holt Turner — the handsome best friend of her new brother-in-law — at her sister’s wedding, she throws caution to the wind for a sin ...more

4 Well Done Stars
Fox has provided us with an Adult Contemporary novel that was both enjoyable and well written. After being in the NA genre for quite awhile now, I almost forgot how pleasurable it is to read real adult language without all the ...more

By Shauni May 13, 2013

Addison Fox is a particular favorite of mine.. I do enjoy her Sons of the Zodiac Series and hope to see more of it.. but that's not what this review is about. Nope Ms Fox is taking us to the boardroom and the bedroom in this wonderful trilogy. Merger to Marriage is book two in the series and it's a ...more

By Heather May 02, 2013

I haven't missed an Addison Fox book yet so I was excited to get an ARC of Merger to Marriage.
This is the second book in the trilogy and tells the story of Mayson - sister to the heroine, Kiera, from the first book - and Holt - best friend to the hero, Nathan, from the first book. This book starts ...more

By pinK May 13, 2013

Books like this are totally my dirty little pleasure. I love negotiated relationships that turn into more. Yes, it's cliche, but there's a reason for cliches. They work! I love the comfortable story line, with the added twists and turns.

Mayson and Holt are a cute, and terrified couple. One of my fav ...more

By Nicola May 23, 2013

Well I'm not going to spoil it for you, but if you enjoyed Tempting Acquisitions, it's highly unlikely you'll be disappointed. Addison Fox has given us a well-written book, with endearing loveable characters, a captivating story, romantic moments, along with those that are frustrating, heartwarming ...more

By Donna May 14, 2013

In Tempting Acquisitions (Boardrooms & Billionaires #1) we met the McBride sisters and were treated to Keiras’ story. Merger to Marriage is Mayson’s tale. On the night of Keira and Nathan’s wedding an over-tired Mayson literally falls into the arms of Holt Turner. She takes it as a sign and they enj ...more

Mayson McBride is one of three sisters who run a magazine/publishing company and website – she is the graphics and design expert and a veritable workaholic. On a whim, with the help of a little Bordeaux, she goes out of character and has what starts as a wild night of passion with no strings attache ...more

By Lori March 15, 2018

What a beautiful story! I loved both Holt and Mayson. I felt for him when he was down and thought himself unworthy or less than others. He was a strong, self sufficient man who went after what he wanted. But when things havungvti do with his mother, he slipped back into his youth. Mayson was a troop ...more

By Melissa Portillo May 05, 2013

Thanks to netgalley for giving me the chance to review this title by Addison Fox. Merger to marriage is book 2 in the boardrooms and Billionaires series. While I enjoyed book 1 I liked book 2 a lot more, The McBride sisters are AWESOME the definition of sisters doing it for themselves!

By My Book Addiction and More July 20, 2013

Classic romance story line but with a few curves that develop into a great read. This book reminded me of a Harlequin novel – classic one night stand, enter baby and marriage and then love – however it is so much more. The writing is complex with well-developed characters who have their own separate ...more

By Alpha Possessive Heroes April 27, 2013

This is another light quick read that is very enjoyable! Last night I was craving for some pregnancy romance and this book hit the spot!

This would have been a typical marriage convenience romance book but with Holt's past and manipulative mother added a little spiced in the story. :)

By Julie April 27, 2013

First of all, I love the name Mayson. I grew to really like her character. She grew up in a family of wealth, but that does not mean she lives on easy street. She gains strength from her bond with her sisters in running and trying to turn around the business their father let languish. This is not th ...more

About the author

Addison Fox

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Shortly after college, Addison decided to try her hand at writing her own novel and it only took about eight pages until she was hooked. Several manuscripts followed and in 2008 she sold her first book. She enjoys writing across romance sub-genres, from contemporary to paranormal to romantic suspense. Addison lives in Dallas. You can find her at her home on the web at or on Facebook ( and Twitter (@addisonfox).
