My major draw to any author is an ability I like to call author's intuition. All authors have it. Some are better at it than others, but knowing what appeals to readers is an absolute MUST. Whether tempting with subtlety, seducing with heat or teetering on the edge of danger, Marie Force knows how to get inside a readers head and appeal to their deepest emotions. Buried within every story she creates and each character she writes are the fears we struggle with, the values that we've come to love and the hope for our own happily ever after. The faces may be different, but the inner core of the human spirit is wrapped up inside with precious care and heartwarming optimism. Can't Buy Me Love proves that love does not have an age limit and happiness never dies but dreams really can come true.

I have been waiting not so patiently for  Mary Larkin and Patrick Murphy's story and all I can say is it was so worth the wait. Mary and Patrick met when he visited town for his daughter Cameron's wedding.Mary, the office manager at the Abbott's Green Mountain Country Store is intrigued by the obscenely rich, suave and debonair Patrick; whilst he is just as interested. Patrick despite being warned off by Cameron, engages in a mild flirtation with Mary, which quickly escalates. Will Cameron approve of their fledgling relationship? Their worlds are poles apart, not to mention they live 6 hours apart. Mary loves her life in Butler, whilst Patrick spends his time jetting around the world or in high powered business meetings. Can their relationship survive the distance or the differences? I read this book in one sitting, I was so entranced and riveted to the story. Marie Force. I love that the Abbotts pop in throughout the book and as always it was great to catch up with them. To be perfectly honest, I would love to be adopted by this family. It is an extremely well written sweet, sexy and romantic book and I have to say a refreshing change to read about a couple who are older. Marie Force's characters are often slightly flawed, yet so realistic and relatable that you cannot help but be drawn in. Can't Buy Me Love shows us that you are never to old to find love. This is one of my most favourite series and one I highly recommend. I cannot wait for more....

Marie Force is one of my go to authors and in this series this was the book I have been waiting for, after all what's not to love about a hot billionaire businessman and a woman who leads a normal life working at the Green Mountain Store. Mary met Patrick when he was in town for his daughter Cameron's wedding, he was told by Cameron do not touch Mary she is off limits but that didn't stop the hot billionaire. Mary is the office manager at the Green Mountain Store, she is happy with her life in Butler or is she.... Will the sizzling chemistry be enough when you live 6 hours apart, she knows his life in in New York and her life is in Butler, two very different people and two very different lifestyles but as they say "opposites attract" when they start chatting on the phone everyday they start to realise maybe they aren't that different, they both are ready to settle down and a secret weekend away seals the deal but who is going to give up their lifestyle guess you need to read the book to find that out..... Once again this author gives us characters with depth, a believable storyline and just the right amount of emotion mixed with some hot scenes. Patrick and Mary's story was the book a lot of readers have been waiting for and it did not disappoint. Great Job Marie a fantastic addiction to already brilliant series.
