Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling series.

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson...and yes, she is that Kathleen Tyson). One: She’s determined to make good decisions. Two: She must get married ASAP. And three: 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?

Dreadful Accents

This is a junky story that is poorly "performed". Especially the male voice, not believable.

All the love for Dan!

The Audiobook for Marriage of Inconvenience is AMAZING!!!! The male narrator Stephen Dexter is F@&*ing awesome as Dan the Security Man. I was laughing constantly during his performance. SO GOOD. (for those that haven't read the ebook before listening to the audio - yes, there is a lot of swearing, Dan drops the F bombs all over the place - he is hilariously funny and I love his character)

Perfect ending to the series

I was worried that this book would wrap up the whole series in a half hearted attempt that so many books seem to do these days. I had nothing to fear. This book answers a lot of the series questions and doesn't rush through the ending at all! definately worth the read/listen.

So sad to be this happy......

I came late the Knitting in The City Books, I read all of them back to back and had to wait only a couple of weeks for Marriage of Inconvenience. So I feel I may have cheated a bit because I had no long wait between stories, but what a wonderful ending for this group (my so happy from the title). I found the knitting stories through the Winston Brothers Series and I love both equally or so I believed. I thought Cletus was my perfect male character until I read Dan the Security Man's story. He and Kat's story was so wonderfully romantic and hilarious, mainly due to Dan. Dan was such a rich and well developed character; maybe due to Mrs. Reid being able to ruminate on him throughout the other Knitting in the City stories. I also think Mrs. Reid 's change of writing style to tell Dan and Kat's story was perfect. The change added a great deal to my enjoyment of the book and made the smile on my face so much bigger. The story was well balanced with laugh out loud funny moments as well as great examples of "cry porn". The funny parts were much more numerous. This book included some suspense and intrigue also. And per usual for a Penny Reid novel, I came away with a little bit more knowledge on a couple of topics. In this book I learned a little something about the pharmaceutical industry and came away with some points to ponder regarding mental illness. I thank Penny for the thoughts on mental illness. Now my complaint (the sad): is this the end of the series?? All of the original group have paired off and have their HEA. We have seen a little peak of each couple's HEA as they were a part of the next novel in the series but was it enough? If I could ask Mrs. Reid for a favor it would be to write a story (even if it is just a short story or novella) that is set 15 or 20 years in the future that gives a nice glimpse of the life each couple has lived and how their marriage/relationship developed over the years. Some stories about their children, their home/household, and their careers. Who had children, how many and whose children have become close. Which husbands became close friends as the years passed. And most important how did the relationship of the ladies change and grow as they aged and distance separated them, did it end the Tuesday night tradition? Or did it make them find other ways to support and appreciate each other? How does the Tuesday night knitting group look years later and is the love and appreciation of the friendship still the same? I know Mrs. Reid has so many irons in the fire but I would love a HEA that wraps up the entire series. I also need to say that due to this series I have become a knitter, still early stages but I’m hooked. There are no groups or shops in my area so I am learning via videos and books but I am sticking with it, so thank you for the hobby. And thank you for the company, I lost my husband recently to pancreatic cancer and the ladies in the knitting group became friends when I needed them. So I appreciated their company more than I can say, thank you so much. Thank you for such well developed and engaging characters, I love them all.

I LOVE Penny Reid. My favorite romance novelist.

This was so great. I try to reserve my 5-Star ratings for things like War & Peace or Interview With the Vampire, but Penny, IMO, is in those authors’ league with Knitting in the City and The Winston Brothers. Some of the best fiction in existence. I also love her older stuff, though not quite as much. I love how Penny addresses different emotionally-charged social issues, such as mental illness like this, in her stories. It makes them so much better, so much more accessible on an emotional level. I think this is the first time I’ve heard Angela Dawe and Stephen Dexter. They did great. Excellent pacing, excellent genders, excellent accents, excellent characterization. No complaints at all.

I never write reviews but..

I love Penny Reid but I can't audio with this book. The performances are so off to me. Kat is very abrupt and the feel isn't right, and Dan.... I am from Boston, love the place, love the accent...sometimes, but if Dan walked up to me with that accent, I would smack him upside the head and tell him to go back to New York where he is obviously from. Anyway, I am sure they are great narrators, it just doesn't feel authentic to the characters. I'm going to have to finish up e-reading this one.

I loved the story, disliked the heroines narrator

Any additional comments?

This is the last book in the Knitting in the City series, so considering I've come this far you'd be right in assuming I'm a huge fan of the series. I already have this book on my Kindle, but wanted to be able to listen to it as well. I devoured the book on my kindle in one sitting, and felt it was the absolute perfect ending. I truly loved Kat and Dan (Dan cusses a lot, but this isn't something that bothers me at all).

Unfortunately, I feel the female narrator was completely wrong for Kat. Kat's personality is more quiet, not weak in any way, just quiet. The narrator reads extremely fast and makes Kat sound very aggressive. (Sidenote, this is the same narrator used for Beard in Mind, and I felt she 'fit' the personality of the heroine). I literally cringed at how she read Kat. It isn't the narrator's voice, just her interpretation.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the narrator for Dan is absolutely perfect. His accent, tone, and reading speed fits Dan to a t!

Considering the perfection of Dan's narrator, I'm just so sad because I can't listen to Kat's side of the story, so I'll have to return this one. (Or maybe just listen to Dan's chapters!)

Emensly Anoying

Any additional comments?

Some books are meant to be read and not listened to. This is one of those. This is not a bad book, just incredibly annoying to listen to. It goes on and on and nothing happens. The irritating narration adds to the annoyance. I gave up listening and read the book.

F bombs times 1,000,000+Hated the male narration

The language ruined this one for me. Penny Reid is one of my top 3 favorite authors and I have read everything she has written. I was SO turned off by the amount of f-bombs in this story. Literally, in almost every sentence Dan uttered... it was over the top. I know this doesn't bother some, but it did me. Also, I hated Dan's heavily over done accent. It made him sound dumb and unattractive. Angela Dawe was wonderful, as usual, as Kat. The story itself could have been a 4.5 star for me if it hadn't been for those two things...

Marriage of Inconvenience

I am so happy this book was about Kat and Dan, I have been rooting for them for so long. Karma I swear this book is all about karma. We get our favorite characters and a new love story to root for. They’re all family no matter where they are or who they are with they all have each other’s backs. I loved the narration it was perfect for these two!

Absolutely delightful

Marriage of Inconvenience is another winning novel in Penny Reid's Kniting in the City Series. I read this book when it was released and enjoyed every bit of it. Her characters are multi dimensional one moment tugging at your heart; another moment sending you into fits of laughter but always deliverng a satisfying story. The narration in this Audible Book adds another enjoyable dimension. Angela Dawe & Stephen Dexter capture this rom/com perfectly. So place this on on your favorite device and turn on this absolutely delightful Boston based rom/com.

Must Miss Book

I am grateful I didn’t use a credit on this book. It was 16 plus hours of hand wringing and gnashing of teeth along with a ludicrous story line. If the author took out the repetitive “I need to tell but I can’t” portions the book would be a pamphlet. This is the first negative review I have ever left but this book was so bad I had to

Disappointing end to an excellent series

This is the last in the series, but you do need to read the previous books to understand many of the side characters and their individual quirks. Unfortunately I did not warm to the h in this book. In previous books she was depicted as shy and withdrawn, but in this book her internal monologues were depressing and immature, and she often created silly “issues” in her head which caused pointless conflict. The H in this book is fantastic, but he made an assumption about the h that was so strange that it seemed implausible that it took two years for the mistake to be realised. The first half of this book could have been covered in one chapter if the couple had just sat down for an hour and had a decent conversation, but instead every interaction between them is strung out with work/friend “interruptions”, and the story dragged. The second half of the book had lots of “almost” sex, thinking about sex, practicing sex etc etc (yawn), due to the sudden disclosure that the h has a wierd sexual hang-up, which seemed contrived simply as an excuse to put in long extended chapters of sexual foreplay. This focus on sex took away from the anticipated corporate fraud plotline, and we are expected to believe that running a billion dollar company just needs a couple of days attendance per month to learn the ropes, and a group of friends who conveniently have all the required expert knowledge (and spare time) to untangle the wrong doings. I yearned for the Alex/Sandra/bitcoin book where the reader was credited with some intelligence, instead of an implausible kidnapping plot which, I agree with other reviewers, felt more like a Scooby Doo cartoon. I really loathe giving a bad review to a Penny Reid book, as this writer has brought me so much joy in the past with her fabulous characters and unusual romances. But this book dwells too much on sex, and not enough on proper adult interactions and a fraud plotline that has some teeth.
