Marriage in the City by Penny Reid

Blurb: 
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?

5 Knitting Club Stars

I love Penny Reid’s books, and I have really enjoyed her knitting in the City series. Marriage of Inconvenience is the seventh instalment to this series but can be read as a standalone.

My hiccups sounded like a shrill gasp if I wasn’t careful to keep my mouth closed. A few people eyeballed me as I walked, as though attempting to determine if I were in distress or just a weirdo making truncated shrieking sounds.

Kat is the sole heir to a Pharmaceutical empire worth billions and she needs help to save her father’s company. To do this she needs to get married. Dan is selfless and willing to give up his own happiness for Kat so she can save everything that means to the world to her. He made me laugh and I just completely adore him. I loved watching them as they got close to each other.

Parts of you are ugly and messy. I still want you. I want the ugly and the beautiful and everything in between. You don’t pick and choose the parts of a person you want. Shit, I’m the ugliest fucker I know, and I want to give it all to you.

There was a lot of awkward moments between Kat and Dan that had me laughing my ass off and made me love both of them so much. Marriage of Inconvenience is a wonderful feel good story. I really enjoyed seeing the rest of the Knitting crew and to see where their stories have gone. This book finished on a high and was the perfect ending to this series.
