Blog tour: The Marriage Merger by Jennifer Probst


Her sisters have found wedded bliss with their wealthy,wonderful dream men, but not Julietta Conte. She’s stayed on terra firma as top executive of the family’s corporation, La Dolce Famiglia bakery. Work is her passion, and her trendy Milan apartment her sanctuary . . . until Sawyer Wells, a masculine masterpiece in a suit, lures her out of hiding with an irresistible offer: an exclusive partnership with his international chain of boutique hotels.

Julietta’s been burned before—and trusting her brother-in-law’s friend, whose powerful gaze alone has her rethinking the best use of a conference room, is the riskiest proposition. But with a once-in-a-career chance to take the bakery global, will she mix stone-cold business with red-hot seduction?

4 star review by Kristie Wittenberg

Julietta Conte has watched her sister find love, as well as her overbearing brother Michael. She has managed to stay top dog for La Dolce Famiglia Bakery, which also happens to be her family’s corporation. She loves to work, it is her passion and it doesn’t give her much of a social life, which is good since the men she has been involved with have let her down, especially in the sex department. That is until the successful Sawyer Wells offers her an exclusive partnership she can’t refuse. There is something about this man that brings Julietta’s body to life. He is gorgeous, controlling, and smart and did I mention determined? He is also a bit mysterious, as is his assistant Wolfe, whom Sawyer trusts to work with Julietta. Being the professional business woman she is, she refuses to mix business with pleasure, plus he is her brother-in-laws friend.
Sawyer Wells is a successful business man. He is working on opening a chain of boutique hotels and wants Juliette’s family bakery involved. He is intrigued by Julietta, she is beautiful, gorgeous and stubborn. What he wasn’t expecting was for Julietta to get under his skin. He wants more than her business, he wants HER and Sawyer always gets what he wants. He makes her a proposition she can’t refuse.

While working close together Julietta finds it harder and harder to resist Sawyers charms. He is a bit of a mystery too. Slowly they get to know each other and the chemistry between them is earth shattering. When you add Mama Conte to the mix, things get downright hilarious.

Sawyer and Julietta have to decide if following their hearts is worth the risk or if it will end up being a catastrophic business decision.

My heart broke for Sawyer. He definitely has demons from his past to battle. As tough and strong he appears to be on the outside, he is broken on the inside. Julietta gets him like no other woman has and it scares him.

Julietta has been let down by the men of her past. She has shut down feeling with her body. She honestly believe that no man she meets will ever be able to give her the release her body desires and craves. Longing to be loved but afraid, Julietta is reluctant to be with Sawyer. He craves prower both in and out of the bedroom. The problem is, she needs to be in control as well but is afraid to admit what she truly craves in the bedroom.

Together Julietta and Sawyer figure things out. Thanks to good ol’ Mama Conte, Julietta and Sawyer end up in a situation they never expected to find themselves in.
I found myself, laughing, cursing and a tad bit sad. I loved being able to see the gang again and how their lives are progressing.
