Book Fuss Friday

Happy Friday, all!!

Well, it's that time. Friday.
Time for BOOK FUSS FRIDAY! :-)

Today's book fuss is a book from my new publisher, Entangled Publishing.

The book?
The Marriage Bargain.

Have you heard the fuss about this book? No?!
Good grief! Get out of the box you've been living in and listen up. LOL

Long before I submitted to Entangled, I had been hearing about their books from author friends and on Goodreads and Twitter.
Well, then, I kept seeing people tweet about this particular book to the point that I finally thought, "For $2.99, I have to see what the fuss is about!"

Yes, folks, you read right.

I ACTUALLY BOUGHT A BOOK BECAUSE OF TWITTER.

So please don't tell me marketing there doesn't work.
Because it worked on me. :-)


Okay, on with the fuss...

Well, I read the book and LOVED it. The characters were a complete hoot and their chemistry leaped off the page. I was completely entertained. Yes, in my opinion, it was worth the fuss.

In fact, if you want to hear more about HOW successful this story is, read HERE.

And then you can read HERE about how it's now in mass market print.
Jennifer Probst is also doing a Q&A chat on Goodreads all of September if you're interested in learning even more.

Here's the blurb:

The Marriage Bargain

A marriage in name only... To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend’s older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart. Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his uncle’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he’s offers Alexa a bold proposition. A marriage in name only with certain rules:
Avoid entanglement.
Keep things all business.
Do not fall in love.
The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?
Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans....

Have you read this book? (you should. it's really cute)
Have you heard the fuss?

I've not heard the fuss - apparently I've been living in a cave. :) The one called trying to get my desk organized amidst many interruptions this week...Good thing you keep me in the loop!

Thanks for the info, insight and links.

Happy weekend!

I don't read many adult books, but I have been seeing Entangled put out quite a few buzzed books lately!! Didn't know they were your new publisher!! Congrats!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Jeez, I guess I've been holed up in a cave, too. I never heard of this book before now, but thanks to YOU, I'm aware of it now. And I am going to order it asap. Thanks.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a fun read.

Shelley Munro said...

Yes, I've read this one. I was curious about the hype. I've read quite a few Entangled books and have been impressed.

Liza said...

Sounds like a lovely read for a rainy Saturday in front of a fire. Looking forward to it.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hadn't heard of this book until your post. Sounds like they both might wind up getting more than they bargained for.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I also bought a book because of a Tweet once. But it didn't come out as well for me, sadly. That's $1.99 I wish I could get back.

Glad you enjoyed the book!

Tara Tyler said...

and hunger games left me hungover too =)

Luxury lanvin bags

already out of date, we will change this outdated season. In fact, do

not worry, a lot of bags thrown away, or fashion, and even the stars

are reluctant to throw out. The most obvious example: lanvin bag, the most

popular brand lanvin

handbag

I've definitely seen the fuss for this book, but haven't tried it yet. I probably will someday!

Moira said...

I haven't read this one yet but have definitely heard the fuss. My kindle is overflowing with books to be read and at this rate, your book fuss Friday's are going to send me over the edge.

After reading this, I saw it at KMart. Going to have to pick it up.
