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?

Excerpt

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.”

Review

Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid is book #7 in her Knitting in the City Series. Kat (Tanner) Tyson needs to get married in a hurry. Last month would be preferable. Her scumbag cousin is trying to have her committed to a mental institution so that he can take her inheritance and her family’s company. Her only option is the man she has had a crush on for years, and one terrible cringe-worthy experience, Dan “the security man” O’Malley.

What Kat doesn’t know is that Dan has had a thing for her for just as long and their past experience and current lack of romantic relationship is based on a rather silly misunderstanding. Dan jumps at the chance to take Kat up on her offer. Seeing it as a way to start a real relationship with her. sadly for both of them, life is not ready to let them have it easy as both have personal issues to work though as well as families that make them seem practically normal in comparison.

This book had some heft to it, in a good way. The story was engaging on many levels and the characters dynamic, interesting and evolving. The struggles they are presented with are real world ones that are magnified by the circumstances they are put in. I loved how Dan and Kat were with each other. Wanting each other, but hesitant, and really building a relationship with all the complexities and pitfalls. Marriage of Inconvenience really goes the distance and runs a gamut of craziness, life, love, romance, passion and marriage.

I very much recommend Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid. The story of Kat and Dan is so much more than just a fake marriage that turns into a real one. The passion, intrigue and thought provoking aspects make it even better.
