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?

I love Penny Reid. Absolutely love her. Her books are smart, sexy and fun. They challenge the reader and make them think while still being full of heart. Marriage of Inconvenience was no different.

I have read all of the other Knitting in the City books prior to reading this and boy, did that make me REALLY want to read this book about Dan and Kat. The buildup has been brewing and I couldn't wait to see what would happen if/when these two characters got their own book. This book totally surpassed what I was hoping for with regards to Dan and Kat. If you haven't read the other books in this series you can absolutely still enjoy this book, but I do recommend reading the others.

Dan and Kat were such a great match for one another. I really felt for Kat and her situation-and I won't go into any more detail than that because I don't want to even remotely hint at spoiling anything. But I sympathized with her, truly. I loved her self discovery in this book-aided by Dan.

Dan...Dan the hot, dirty talking security man. I love this character. I love him so very much lol. Yes, he has a very foul mouth but there's so much more to him than that. I know it might offend some, but I felt it suited him perfectly. And I love how he loved Kat.

This is a great romance story but it's more than that at the same time. There's friendship and loyalty mixed in with the love. It's a balance the author strikes perfectly. The writing here was smart and sharp, as is always the case with this author. The pacing of the book really, really worked for these characters.

As I've said before, I've been waiting for this book-and it was absolutely worth the wait. I loved and it and highly recommend it.

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.”
