Who said marriage had to be convenient?
LA party planner Poppy Collins has kept her side business—planning divorce parties as the Divorce Diva—under wraps, but keeping her sister’s company afloat is proving tougher by the day. When a new divorce party prospect gives Poppy the opportunity to save the day and boost her bottom line, she can’t pass it up. But this time, she’s about to get way more than she bargained for…
Vegas golden boy Beck Blackwood knows Poppy’s secret, and he’s not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants—a wife. With his reputation and corporate expansion plans on the line, the only way he can repair the damage is by getting hitched, and fast. And if blackmail is the only way to get Poppy to the altar, then so be it…
But they’re in the city of high stakes, and Poppy has a few aces up her sleeve. Now it’s time to find out if they’re playing to win…or if they’re playing for keeps.
This book had a fun, modern feel to it and was short & I liked the characters. The heroine Poppy had sass and humour, her sister who practically raised her since her plastic surgeon parents were busy moving in uppity circles has been spiralling since her husband walked out , so to make sure h... ...more

I like the book. Except that I couldn't bring myself picturing out Gerard Butler for Beck Blackwood, as the author described his look-alike, I quote her words, "It.Did.Not.Do.Justice." I switched with Rick Malambri instead. (That's what imagination is for!;p) Which also made the read worthwhile.;... ...more
I really enjoyed this story! I love a good marriage of convenience story and this one was really good. I loved the connection between Beck and Poppy.
