Not the Marrying Kind by Nicola Marsh
Who said marriage had to be convenient?
LA party planner Poppy Collins has kept her secret side business – planning divorce parties as the Divorce Diva – a close secret, but keeping her business afloat is proving tougher by the day. When her sister’s divorce party gives Poppy the opportunity to save the day and boost her business, Poppy approaches Vegas golden boy Beck Blackwood for help. But this time, she’s about to get way more than she bargained for…
Beck knows Poppy’s secret, and he’s not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants – a wife. With his reputation and business expansion plans on the line, the only way he can repair the damage is by getting hitched, and fast. And if blackmail is the only way to get Poppy to the altar, then so be it…
But they’re in the city of high stakes, and Poppy has a few aces up her sleeve. Now it’s time to find out if they’re playing to win… or if they’re playing for keeps.

………hear that? That’s the sound of a relatively quiet book release week (I say “relative” because next week will be a mad house; mark my words!). Of course, there are always goodies to be found, varied enough to satisfy the tastes of very particular audiences. And then there are those books that seem to defy simple description. Take Shine Shine Shine, for instance. Readers classify this debut as contemporary, science fiction, romance, drama, chick-lit, and general fiction… the premise sounds pretty high concept, so it might be one to excerpt before reading. (But is does have many great reviews thus far!)
There’s a string of promising contemporary romances this week, starting with very awesome Not the Marrying Kind by the (equally awesome) Nicola Marsh and continuing with the sweet-sounding When In Doubt, Add Butter. (Speaking of the latter, a food-centric romance sounds like a good time to me; I know what I’ll be reading very soon! ^_^).
Anything new catch your eye from the releases listed above? If not, what do you have planned to start reading over the next week?
