Ever proposed marriage on a first date?

To a guy you first met covered in whipped cream?

(I haven't even mentioned the bit where he won our date at an auction)

There's no ring in my pocket, but I really hope he says yes.

Not because I'm in love with him—that would be ridiculous.

He needs to impress my father and I need access to my trust fund. That's all our union will be about.

For three months, I've just got to ignore the rock-hard muscles I felt when I ran into him, the look in his eye that tells me he tastes as good as he looks, and the chemistry that sizzles between us whenever we're together.

Easy. Right?

A feel-good, fake marriage, standalone in the mister series.

Mr. Notting Hill takes author Louise Bay’s Mister series out on a high note. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books

It’s always sad to see a series come to an end and Louise Bay’s Mister series has been charming, fun, and sexy. This chance meeting with a twist story had a lot of moving parts and at times I felt like the romance got a bit lost, but I also enjoyed this book a lot as we see all the couples from the previous books and get a peek into how their relationships and lives are faring. Mr. Notting Hill was entertaining, sexy, and had a bit of a suspense angle that personally I could have done without but seems to be all the rage in romance books these days.

Meeting at a charity benefit when Parker literally runs into Tristan there is an immediate spark and a whole lot of sexual tension so when Tristan sees Parker up on stage being auctioned off for a date, he doesn’t hesitate he bids big and wins the girl only to find out that she’s the daughter of one of his mentors and she suspects he has ulterior motives. Both these characters have big hearts and some quirks which made it interesting. Tristan agrees to marry Parker so she can get her trust fund which she intends to give all to her pet charity. He also lets her father know that’s her plan but he is okay with it because he believes that means she’s learned to trust someone again.

I really loved watching the relationship between these two develop; from strangers, to friends, to lovers, and more and it all developed quite organically over the course of this book.  I loved Tristan; there was so much more to him than we’d seen throughout this series and he was truly a good man with a take charge attitude. It bothered me that Parker despite having a good head on her shoulders didn’t take the fact money was disappearing out of her accounts seriously or the fact she didn’t ask her father, a respected banker, for advice.  While Tristan did take some liberties when investigating the problem, I felt Parker overreacted especially given what Tristan found out.

Sweet, sexy, and filled with emotion; Mr. Notting Hill takes this series out on a high note.

About Louise Bay

USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Each novel is stand-alone.

Ruined by bonk-busters and sexy mini-series of the eighties Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.

Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, hanging out with her kid, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
