(Pryce Family #1)
by Nadia Lee

Curvaceous beauty Hilary Rosenberg doesn't believe in love. She only goes out with nice guys who won't expect passionate romance -- until a notorious womanizer demands she repay a favor with four weeks of counterfeit dates.
Billionaire playboy Mark Pryce doesn't do relationships. In fact, he's never been with the same woman for more than three months. But when his matchmaking mother tries to sabotage his bachelorhood, he needs a stand-in girlfriend. Luckily Hilary owes him big time. But as they start to spend more time together, he finds himself wanting to break his first rule: never get too close.

I'm pretty sure I got this free during a time that it was free on Amazon and just now finally got around to reading it. I am always a bit leary of new authors and free books. I'm can't resist one-clicking those freebies but it's always hit and miss!
I really liked this one! I haven't read Nadia Lee's books before but now I'm going to be checking out more of hers and definitely more on this family! Mark is a likeable guy while Hillary irritated me a tad.
I'm conflicted on Hillary. She works hard at her job and makes herself irreplaceable. She tries her best to be completely different from her dysfunctional family. She chooses guys by making sure they are 'safe'. Yet she still lives at home with her Aunt. I want to smack her on the back of the head. GET completely away from the crazies Hillary! Let's not even get started on the 100% certified crazy that is her cousin Bebe. *shudders*
Mark has his own share of family dysfunction but he doesn't surround himself with it like Hilary does. He is very likeable and I love the lengths he goes to to prove himself to Hilary. I find that a lot of "billionaire" books the male is usually more power hungry & unlikeable. Mark isn't your typical rich guy. He knows how to use his money but he seems more down to earth. His interfering mother - GRRR!
A quick read that was enjoyable! There's definitely lots of sexual tension with only one steamy scene but it's the perfect amount for this book. There is so much going on that you don't need tons of steamy scenes to make the book :)
