Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: her family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.

Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off limits. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand—and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable—and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed….
I read The Marriage Bargain, first book of the Marriage to a Billionare series, a while ago and really liked it. So when I saw The Marriage Mistake at Netgalley, I couldn't wait to read it! I didn't realize I missed the second book until I was half done with this, but obviously it's now on my to-be-read shelf.

I love a good brother's friend and little sister romance, it's always adventurous to fall in love behind everyone's back. Carina is the youngest of her house, and everyone threats her as a child, even her childhood crush Max. But she's ready to make everyone clear, specially Max, that she's now a woman.

Carina was kind of a young me. She knew what she wanted, but didn't know how to get it! Max has been her constant crush and seeing him again is making her crazy. Making him jealous is a great game, until things get out of control.

Max ended being my favorite character. He always liked Carina, but his loyalty to his friend keep him back. He gets jealous when she's with other men, so when she ask him for just one wild and passionate night, he finally accepts.

Of course none of them were planning to be discovered by Carina's mother. Personally, I didn't thought it was realistic the way her mother acted. Why make them get married? And why did they accepted it so easily? I know her family is very traditional but, people still do that?

Anyway, it was a great story. I liked the way Carina finally found herself and that Max was brave enough to keep her. It meant big changes to them, but it was so obvious they were meant to be together.

Overall, if you are looking for passionate love stories, you should definitely try the Marriage to a Billionaire series.
