Cleaning up after playboy Paxton deBraun is a full time job.
His family is worth billions. They are the elite. They influence politicians. They’re the power behind the power. Paxton is their golden child, wealthy in his own right, a rising star in Washington DC’s political scene…a 21st century Jay Gatsby, prone to throwing lavish, expensive, wild, and destructive parties.
I’m a housekeeper at a hotel owned by his mother, Camilla deBraun, and I’m sent in to clean up after such a party.
What I wasn’t expecting was to find Paxton naked in his bed, passed out and breathtaking even hungover.
Even more unexpected is the proposal bombshell he drops on me: Marry him.
A man I met once, a golden god, richer than belief, gorgeous beyond comprehension, and arrogant beyond fathom.
Me, a hotel maid working three jobs to make ends meet…Marry him.
It’s supposed to be fake, more of a business agreement than marriage proposal.
Only…it turns out there’s more to this sexy billionaire than meets the eye.
“Sometimes, a kiss is just a kiss–the first time, that’s what it was, Paxton kissing me to prove a point. Other times, a kiss is something more. It’s a gateway drug to the heavy stuff. This is one of those kisses.”
Jasinda Wilder has another hit on her hands with Married in Michigan!!
Married in Michigan is the latest installment of the 50 States of Love Series and it follows the story of Paxton and Makayla. From the moment I dove into Makayla and Paxton’s story, I was hooked. Makayla’s life hasn’t been an easy one. She’s working three jobs just to keep her head above water and take care of her sick mother. However, Makayla’s world is about to get turned upside down. She’s used to cleaning up after the rich and famous, but when she meets Paxton, she gets more than she ever bargained for…..Paxton has big dreams and a playboy reputation. So, when his mother tells him he needs to clean up his act and get married, Paxton wants nothing more than to rebel. His big plan??? Marry the girl that is the total opposite of him in every way. It was supposed to be easy; no strings, no romance, no nothing. But fate has other plans for Paxton and Makayla. Can these two opposites pull off a fake marriage? Will their relationship turn into the real deal?? There’s only one way to find out…..
Married in Michigan was a terrific read from beginning to end. I feel instantly in love with the characters and couldn’t wait to dive further into their story. Makayla was a force to be reckoned with. She was smart, professional and wasn’t afraid of hard work. She wasn’t ashamed of where she came from or the struggles she had to endure. And then we have Paxton. Paxton is used to a certain lifestyle and always gets his way. He’s arrogant and a total playboy. But, there is definitely more to Paxton than meets the eye. When he cares about someone, he goes all in. He loves big and has some seriously swoon worthy moments. Together these two couldn’t be more opposites, but their chemistry can’t be denied. The push and pull between Paxton and Makayla was fantastic as was their banter. I loved watching these two navigate their way through a fake relationship and couldn’t wait to see how their story would end.
Paxton and Makayla stole my heart from the very beginning and left me with a big smile on my face in the end. I had a terrific time getting lost in Married in Michigan and look forward to the next installment of the 50 States of Love Series.
