Blog Tour: Million Dollar Mistake by Meg Lacey (Review)


In addition to overseeing the financial affairs of the wealthy Kristoff family, Nicholas Demetrious specializes in hauling its rambunctious members out of trouble. Especially his distant cousin, Raven Rutledge.

The tabloids love her bad-girl antics, sexy pout, and body made for sin. Nicholas would love to spank the bejesus out of her, but this time the situation is too serious to entertain such a fantasy. A lucrative business deal with the Exeters is in jeopardy, and Jackson Exeter Sr.'s ultimatum is clear: Remove this man-eater from my country house, or the deal is off.

Raven is in way over her head. She accepted the invitation to the Exeters' Adirondack house party as a refreshing change from her jet-setting lifestyle-until she learns the guest list includes his entire family. His ex-girlfriend. And the junior Exeter's intention to propose.

If ever she needed suave, sophisticated Nicholas's persuasive powers, it's now. Then he's there with a plan to get her out of this tangle: sweep her off her feet. But their pretend passion turns all too real. And what started out as a weekend of fun threatens to shatter into betrayal and heartbreak.

My Thoughts

This is the first book in the Million Dollar Men series and what a fun book!  The characters were likeable people you could root for.  I loved Jackson's grandmother...she was a wonderful addition to the book and added even more fun with her matchmaking ways.  Raven and Nicholas were so good together, even though I wanted to shake both of them a few times.  LOL   Even the secondary characters were special and the readers could truly care about them.  I totally enjoyed Meg Lacey's writing style, it was sassy, romantic and sexy.  I will definitely continue reading this series.

  1. I've read about this somewhere else lately, too. Sounds like a great read.

  2. Did they have to be distant cousins? Distant but still

    1. Yeah, that bothers me too. I just can't get behind cousins being involved.

  3. Yvonne, it sounds as if you really enjoyed this book, because of the great characters as well as the author's style of writing. Wonderful review!
