If you like romantic comedies, you are gonna love Nicola Marsh's new book, Not the Marrying Kind. I simply fell in love with the heroine, Poppy, who is sassy, sexy and gives back as good as she gets. And of course, she is not looking for either love or marriage. After all, she is a divorce party organizer who loves wearing poppy red stilletos. Along comes "not the marrying kind" billionaire Beck and sparks fly, hearts go a-boom and witty dialogue ensues! Nicola has a flair for creating strong heroines, fun romantic situations and peppering her story with scintillating dialogue. I particularly loved how Nicola begins each chapter with blog entries from Poppy's Divorce Diva Daily with listings for music, movie and cocktail of the day. It sets the tone for a delightful romance that keeps you laughing out loud and flipping the pages to the happily-ever-after ending.

I really enjoyed this book – read it straight though, in fact. Beck Blackwood, alpha male billionaire, meets his match big time with party planner Poppy Collins. Not the Marrying Kind brings the marriage of convenience trope bang up to date with divorce parties, hot sex and some really fun secondary characters. They all get to swear too. Mega.

## This book was fabulous. It was fun and sexy and I absolutely loved it. The heroine was amazing. She was independent, capable, witty and fun-loving. And the hero was, well, yummy comes to mind. It was a tad predictable, but so what? Did I mention the hero was hot? The writing was fantastic, the dialogue fresh and flirty. I only wish the author would've added a couple more paragraphs at the end. But well worth your time!

I found myself really liking the characters, very predictable but enjoyed it. The initial attraction is the funnest part to read, wish romance authors wouldn't rush it and get it over with, books always take a turn for the worse after the climax. (No pun intended :) Ending was rushed but cute.

LA party planner Poppy Collins has a secret and Beck Blackwood, a sexy Vegas billionaire, knows what it is. He figures that he can save his reputation and his advance his business plans by blackmailing Poppy. He needs a wife and she needs his silence. How will a marriage of convenience work between these two? I loved this fast-paced, flirty romance. The characters are engaging and easy to relate to. I laughed at the dialogue and the chemistry between these two had me sighing. Vegas provided a glitzy background for this feel good story. I loved Not The Marrying Kind. Nicola Marsh is a talented author who combined true feelings and a sexy romance to give the reader a satisfying HEA.

A very good marriage of convenience story. While the storyline was typical of this trope, the writing and interesting characters made this an excellent read. The author's very descriptive writing made the Vegas strip and surrounding mountainside vivid, and the feelings from the characters ring true. A very good read I highly recommend.

What a fun read! It was a perfect mix of feisty and real characters with a unique story line.  Poppy has taken over her sister's party planning business while her sister recuperates from a nasty divorce. To spice up the business, Poppy begins a Divorce Diva side and plans her first divorce party, despite keeping it a secret from her newly divorced sister. Usually I fall in love with the heros first, but I've got to say I fell into deep like with Poppy. She'd be a great friend, full of sass and snarkiness -- the perfect mix of a fun girlfriend I'd want to hang out with. Beck Blackwood is the sexiest billionaire I've read in a long time. Not only is he successful, but he worked hard to get there. **SIGH** He also is full of snarkiness, and the two characters bicker back and forth so eloquently, you know they're meant for each other from the start. Beck needs a wife. Poppy needs money to save her sister's business. Soon there's a marriage of convenience. I love how the two fall in love quickly, being so right for each other, and exactly what they each need. The only thing I didn't like (and it's a small negative -- the good far outways the negative) is that it felt like it ended too fast. I wanted more! MORE! MOOOOOOORRRRREEEE! These lively characters, the dry wit and the hot hot sexiness of the story is totally worth the read! I wish I had more Poppy and Beck! Loved this book! 4 1/2 winks

This delightful marriage of convenience story (not always my favourite but really worked for me here) is the story of Beck and Poppy. Poppy is going out on a limb to save her sister's party planning company by anonymously becoming the Divorce Diva, helping newly divorced people plan parties to celebrate a new and better future. When billionaire Beck hires her to plan a divorce party for his friend, he also bargains with her to be his wife in a marriage of convenience, something he requires to provide his company with the boost of respectability it needs to combat a scandalous company history. It's a win-win situation for both of them - until the attraction between them leads to emotions neither wants to admit to. Can a fake marriage lead to a real future together? I really enjoyed this story! Both of the main characters appealed to me. Beck is a handsome, driven man with a sweet side. He's a serious businessman but he cares about his employees. Poppy is a flirty and fun woman, determined to help her sister through a rough patch and willing to do anything to make her business succeed, including going through with this marriage to a man she is seriously attracted to but needs to guard her heart from. But the more she sees the real Beck, the more he shares intimate details of his life with her, the more she falls for him. There is a lot of sexual tension in the story that leads to some sweet and sexy love scenes. Another thing I really liked was the Divorce Diva posts at the beginning of each chapter, those were really cute. Overall I found this to be a fun and entertaining read, with some steamy scenes, an interesting and unique plot and a couple deserving of their happy ever after. 5 stars!

The Marrying Kind by Nicola Marsh I really, really, really enjoyed this book!! This is the story of Poppy and Beck.  Poppy is a LA Party Planner who is trying to help her sister's business stay afloat while her sister is struggling to get her life back on track.  Poppy has a secret side business going called Diva Divorce, which throws parties to help people celebrate a start to a new life after divorce.  After being contacted by Beck, Poppy has a decision to make. Beck is the top CEO of his company.  With the recent scandal of one of his employees, Beck is trying to get his reputation out of the dirt and with plans of expansion he needs the help of Poppy. You will have to read this fantastic book to see if Poppy and Beck can work together to get to their goals, can they make it work? Fall in love? What is going on with Poppy's sister?  You must read this book to find out! Nicola Marsh has done a wonderful job with this book.  The characters are very easy to relate to, they make you laugh, and sometimes shock you.  I was hooked from the first page to the very last page.  I am hoping we will see more books about these same characters.  This is a fabulous read and I highly recommend it!!!! 5 Stars!!!!
