Book Description:

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?

***ARC received for an honest review***

“When you have that much money, only your child mourns you.”

Penny Reid never fails to deliver, and Marriage of Inconvenience is no different. This author is the master of words and no matter what she turns her hand to, it is simply…stunning. The Knitting in the City series is one of my favourites of hers and now being book seven, these characters are like family. Dan is a character I have been eagerly waiting for and his story did not disappoint. Everyone will love him and his filthy mouth and if anyone deserved a happy ever after, it was him.

“But never tell me what I deserve, unless it’s you.”

Kat was a character that had little to no self-worth, she was self-deprecating, and her confidence was at rock bottom. Kat had made mistakes, a lot of mistakes and her past was less than savoury at times, but she had turned herself around and was now a model citizen. But the problems with pasts, are they are always there, and always come back to bite you on the ass.

Dan Dan the Security Man, the Irish rogue with a huge heart. Again, unsavoury past but had turned his life around and was now a man most admired. Dan has a huge personality, a foul mouth but has the propensity to love like no other. I think this is the most I have seen the F Bomb in a book and in a Penny Reid book, made me more than crack up. I never knew the F Word was so diverse.

“I’m in love with you. You’re my fucking—fucking sunshine. My goddamn everything. You’re the centre of my whole fucking universe. I’d give up swearing for you, I swear. If you asked, I’d never say the word fuck ever again, that’s how much I love you. I love you more than fuck, so that’s a whole fuckavalot.”

Kat is in trouble; big trouble and she needs someone to go above and beyond the call of duty to step up for her and get her out of the shit fest she finds herself in. They say that blood is thicker than water, but nothing could be further from the truth is most instances in this book. However, Dan’s mum was simply adorable.

“I swear Seamus was conceived by anal sex. There’s no other explanation for him being such an asshole.”

This book was smattered with the Reid sense of humour and her intelligent conversations, facts and dialogue. This book was action packed and the ultimate swoon fest and will have ovaries combusting everywhere. There is never a dull moment in a Penny Reid book and I will read whatever this author puts out. Her books are more than a romance, they are a life lesson, a science lesson and they never, ever get old. Absolutely adore this series and sincerely hope that there is more to come.


Staring at his chin, because I couldn’t quite lift my eyes any higher, I cleared my throat. “Should we get ready for bed?” “Sure,” he said, his voice a rumble. Dan’s eyes were on me, I felt the weight of them. My hands came to the hem of my skirt and I hesitated, feeling winded for some reason. Sneaking a glance at him, I immediately wished I hadn’t. His gaze was watchful, but it was also unmistakably hot in a way that seemed at once both avaricious and accusatory. The vice tightened around my lungs. Kiss him! Just freaking kiss him! You want numbered steps? Fine. You kiss him- check. He kisses you back- check. Then you make out- check. Check the boxes. I licked my lips, balling my hands into fists at my sides again, preparing to follow my hasty list. But then he said, “Undress me.” My breath caught. On instinct, my eyes lifted and collided with his in much the same way our bodies had collided at the top of the stairs just moments ago. Jarring. Startling. Thrilling. This time I couldn’t look away because this time I was falling. He made no move to catch me. “What? What did you say?” His eyes narrowed, which served only to increase the intensity of his gaze from smolder to inferno. “Take my clothes off.” I stared at him, licking my lips again, and shaking my head. That wasn’t one of my steps. Lifting my chin, I moved to kiss him. He leaned to the side, evading me even as his eyes dropped to my mouth. “Take off my shirt and I’ll give you a kiss.” He’d used his naughty-secret voice. An explosion of heat erupted in my belly, and now I was hot all over. I couldn’t figure out if the heat was embarrassment or arousal or both. He didn’t give me a chance to figure it out. His hands lifted and he undid his cuffs; then they moved to the top button of his shirt. “You better take over,” he said darkly, “or else you’re not getting that kiss.”

  1. I'm quite interested in this book. I think I'll buy it. The teaser is great.
    The review and the excerpt made me think of another book, His Secret Obsession. It's a great book. The Missing Ingredient In Every Relationship such as sex, communication and romantic dates are undoubtedly important but an outstanding book reveals the surprising factor that can make ALL the difference in a relationship.

    But very few women (or men) are even aware of it!

    The secret ingredient is understanding men on a deep emotional level, and how the subtle things you say to a man affect him much more than you might think.

    What men secretly want, but could never tell you is in this book. Check it out on:
