The Marriage Caper (Billionaire Games) by Sandra Edwards is a lovely romantic story of true love winning over money. Number two son, Andre de Laurent, comes from a family that has lots and lots of money; Tasha Gordon is an aspiring actress working as a waitress. Andre and Tasha are in love but have no plans of ever marrying. Andre has always known his older brother would inherit the family business and become the leader of the family and he has always been a little jealous of his brother Julian. This all changes when his mother’s uncle leaves him the bulk of his estate. There are stipulations involved in the will, which states that in order for his brother and younger sister and himself to receive the inheritance Andre must find a bride within a very short period of time and remain married for a year. Tasha is also facing a situation in her life. She has just taken a pregnancy test and discovers that she is expecting Andre’s baby. Andre visits Tasha and plans to explain the situation he has been placed under and ask her to marry him for the year, but when he finds the pregnancy test results and realizes Tasha is having his child, he simply asks her to marry him and neglects the other important details. When Tasha does find out why she thinks they were married, things go badly.
Sandra Edwards is a wonderful romantic storyteller. The Marriage Caper is a book that will make you believe it is possible to find, love and marry your Prince Charming. The story was warm and fuzzy and the characters were so very likeable. I read this book in less than two days because I just couldn’t put it down; it made me smile and it made me cry just a little. This is a book every woman, young and old, will love reading. I didn’t know it was book two when I began reading or that Sandra Edwards has written more Billionaire Games books, but I am planning on getting them all and reading them immediately. The Marriage Caper is a ten-star book – don’t pass it up.

## Bad. Really bad. I was bored to tears with this book. The couple had zero chemistry. Nada, zilch, nix, nyet. And there was no passion in the writing. At all. I can't believe I wasted my money on this drivel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was eagerly waiting to read the next story in the Billionaire Games and The Marriage Caper delivers in a big way. This story follows Andre and his surprise inheritance, but there's a catch. He has to marry within 60 days and stay married for 1 year. He has no problem knowing which woman he wants to marry--Tasha Gordon, the sassy waitress/actress he met when his brother married her best friend. Tasha has her own problems, but when Andre proposes, she readily accepts. What happens next is totally unexpected. This story is a not just formula romance, Ms. Edwards packs this story with such joy, heartbreak and betrayal. I couldn't put it down and read it in 1 long sitting. I was so connected with the characters especially Tasha and had to keep reading to find out what happened next. I was certainly in for a few surprises along the way. I've read quite a few of Ms. Edwards' books and this one is the best one yet. Fans of romance will thoroughly enjoy this story. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?

I absolutely loved the first book in this series and just had to get my hands on this one when a tour for it came around. The first book, The Marriage Bargain, was all about Julian and Camille. Julian is the son of an extremely wealthy man who was being pressured into marriage by said wealthy man. He decided that instead of marrying the woman that his father picked out for him, he would hire a woman to pretend to be his wife. She would carry on the charade for a certain amount of time and then they would divorce. In return for her troubles, she would leave him as a VERY wealthy woman. Well of course love prevails and the two actually fall in love.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This story is about Julian's brother Andre. Andre has never had any real desire to get married until he meets Camille's best friend Tasha at Camille and Julian's wedding. He basically carries on a long distance affair with Tasha while knowing that if he ever were to marry, she was exactly what he wanted. Well Papa is up to his old tricks again. This time Papa doesn't pick a woman to force Andre into marrying, instead he convinces a distant uncle to give everything he owns to Andre upon his death with the stipulation that he must marry within 60 days of the reading of the will and remain married for a whole year. If this was the only stipulation in the will, Andre probably would have said no, but his brother and sister's inheritance also is on the line. He must marry in order for anyone to get anything. Th obvious choice is Tasha, which Papa already knew. His father finds a way to convince Andre that if he were to marry Tasha, he would not be forcing her to give up her dreams or to be in a situation that she doesn't already want. Well Andre immediately leaves France for California to tell Tasha all about the inheritance and to beg her to marry him. However, when he gets to her door he discovers she's pregnant with his child. What happens? Well they decide to get married of course! However, Andre decides to hide the initial reason for his marriage proposal from her, a move that is sure to come back to slap him in the face. What Andre doesn't know is that there is a very distant cousin plotting to destroy his marriage in order for the inheritance to be given to her. How will it turn out? Will Andre marry Tasha and live happily ever after? Will they do something to violate the stipulations of the will, thus losing everything? Read to find out!
