By Sandra EdwardsLecie de Laurent is dying to cut the apron strings and strike out on her own. With the house and the money she's inherited from Edouard Renault, she finally has her chance without financial repercussions from Papa. California is an intoxicating place for the sheltered, high society girl from France, and she's not ready to leave when her father insists she return home. Lecie's father, Maurice de Laurent is a powerful man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants--just ask her brothers, Julian and Andre. When Maurice threatens to have Lecie deported (thinking she'll come home), Lecie retaliates in true de Laurent fashion. Nick Matthews desperately needs cash, after his fiancée leaves him deeply in debt the day before their wedding. On the verge of losing his popular restaurant, Nick decides to seek out an investor to help pay off the debt. The answer to both their problems just might be wrapped up in The Marriage Fix.
My Thoughts: The Marriage Fix is Lecie’s turn to tell her story of dealing with her overbearing father. This was a short and sweet romance. I enjoyed the glimpses of old favorites, like Tasha and Julian, and I loved getting to know more about Lecie. This story moves rather quickly over a short period of time, but the plot is interesting. I would have happily read much more.
Lecie is the same spunky girl from the first books. Only, now she is gaining independence. I thought that was great for her as a character. She was learning to rely on herself and to not let her father dictate her life. I like how bravely she handled everything that happened. Nick is such a great character. He is always trying to do what is right, and he has great morals. I really enjoyed Nick’s back story.
The Marriage Fix was a great read. I found myself rooting for the characters to thwart Lecie’s father’s plans. That man has got to learn to let go a little. I loved the scheming and the drama. It was nice that, although there may have been some lust at first sight, the relationship developed some over time. I wish there had been more for me to read, but that’s because I’m greedy.
