Leaving her small town behind, Bethany Casse moves to Chicago in search of a new life. Working at a top financial bank brings her into contact with two men who are as different as night and day.

Kent Plack, heir to Plack Industries, has no interest in being with a woman for longer than one night. A spoiled and lazy man-whore, he is completely content with his playboy lifestyle, and Beth is surprised when they form an unlikely friendship.

Brian Burcham, a finance banker, is gorgeous and respectful. A man plucked from Beth’s dreams, he is definite husband material. Unfortunately, Beth has a hard rule against dating coworkers, but Brian is determined to change her mind.

When a deadbeat mother and money problems follow her to Chicago, Beth is offered a solution that could fix everything. Marrying for money seems simple enough, but when lines become blurred, Beth faces difficult choices, making her realize that the easy way out just made her life even harder than before.

Let me start by saying that this is my favorite blog tour I have participated in so far! I absolutely loved this book, so much that I could read it again right now! I loved that it was set in Chicago (I live in Northwest Indiana)! I fell in love with Kent so fast but I was not a huge fan of Brian. He just seemed too perfect. I loved Beth & her easy friendship with Kent. I thought the mom & money drama was an interesting factor, I like how it didn't take over the whole book but when it was mentioned it fit in well with the rest of the story. I don't want to give too much away, but I LOVED the ending! I definitely recommend that anyone who loves a good romance reads this book!

Interview with Mia Kayla

When did you first know you wanted to be a writer?

I always had journals when I was younger but MARRY ME FOR MONEY was the first book that I'd ever written. When I started writing Beth's story, I didn't know where it was going to end up. All I knew was I wrote a story that I loved and I wanted to share it with a wider audience.

What inspired you to write Marry Me for Money?

Ultimately I wrote a book I'd like to read. I incorporated all the qualities I loved in other books in Marry Me for Money. I wrote a friend's to lover's trope, which is my ultimate favorite to read. I developed Beth into a heroine that every young woman could relate to. Because I like my alpha male heroes, I included two hot men in Marry Me for Money.

Were there specific songs or a playlist you listened to when writing Marry Me for Money?

 I don't have specific play lists with my book but one song did play in my head as I wrote this. That song was Lucky by Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat.

What book (or books) can you read over and over again? 
The Twilight Series and Beautiful Disaster.

If you could become a character in any book, who would it be and why?

I'd be Abby from Beautiful Disaster because she's real. She's not your typical virginal clueless heroine. She's still a good girl that loves to have fun. Plus, she gets to marry Travis Maddox.

 What are you currently working on?

I'm currently editing my next novel which is called “Everything has Changed.” I'm anticipating a release date of Fall 2014. It's a stand alone novel about childhood friends, their struggles and their life into adulthood. You can read the back cover blurb here. Be sure to add it to your TBR:

Last but definitely not least, if you had to pick one boy band (and only one!) which would you pick?

Oh no! No you just didn't. This is hard but if I had to pick one it would be New Kids on the Block. I'm a crazy fan girl over Jordan Knight and am going to see him in Nick and Knight at House of Blues this September.

I grew up listening to their jams and had every T-shirt, pin and jacket. I went to the NKOTB concert when I was in 8th grade and even on my 30th birthday. So yeah, NKOTB is my top pick.
