New Release & Review: Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid

Happy Release Day!!!
Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid
Knitting in the City #7
March 6, 2018

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'm so sad that the 'Knitting in the City' series is over, but I'm so happy it is out in the world in completion for all to fall in love with. 'Marriage of Inconvenience' was not only the highly anticipated love story of Kat and Dan (swoon, Dan), but also a love letter to the amazing characters of this series. The knitting ladies and their guys have stolen my heart, and I loved seeing them pop up throughout this story (especially Sandra and Alex, because I love them so much!).

Kat and Dan's story was a sweet, slow-building romance, that started with attraction and miscommunication, but ended in the best of ways. I'm not normally a huge fan of miscommunications and time gaps, but I really felt that these characters (especially Kat) had some growth and self-exploration to do on their own before they could be in a place for their epic romance. And they have an epic romance. These two have hearts of gold, and I loved watching their journey (though I wanted to speed things along at times, just because). I could feel their growth and love building over the pages. I especially loved Dan! I mean, he's just so dang awesome! Even stoic Quinn has a bromance with Dan, that's how awesome he is.

Reid also takes on some bigger issues beyond romance in this story, and I felt that she made the issues and points relevant and particularly treated Kat's situation with sensitivity and respect. You know when you're reading a Penny Reid book, you're going to get a little something extra in your story.

So the KitC series is over. We finally got Kat and Dan's epic love story, and yes, there is an epilogue. But the feeling is bittersweet. Kat and Dan are the sweetest! It's KitC cameo heaven! But it's also over. Good thing there's a little something called re-reading.
