Review: Marriage of Inconvenience

Book Review: Marriage of Inconvenience, by Penny Reid, 5 stars


There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She's determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn't all it's cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family's legacy. But now, Kat's silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O'Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity--and heart--all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O'Malley isn't as indifferent--or as trustworthy--as she thought?

Review: Marriage of Inconvenience is a riot, probably one of the funniest stories I've read lately. It's definitely a laugh-out-loud kind of book. It's a bit on the longish side, and also part of a series - I didn't read any of the previous books and I managed to navigate this one without major issues, but there are a lot of secondary characters and sometimes things look a bit messy.

Kat has so many issues I don't even know where to begin, but underneath she's the best person ever. She made - and keeps making - restitution for all the mistakes in her past, or at least she tries. Dan the Security Man is probably everyone's dream man. And he's totally cute too. Even when he's being obnoxious he's still cute.

Once or twice I wished for milder language. There seems to be an excess of bad words coming out of everyone's mouth, even if some turn out to be funny. Other than that, this is a book your shouldn't miss if you love the genre. Recommended.

Happy Monday,
