“Marriage of Inconvenience” – Penny Reid

Amazon link here: http://amzn.to/2oWL1JQ

End of Series books are hard. Part of you clamours for the story, the other part wants a world you’ve grown to love to never end. What a way to end though, this was a gravity blanket of a read. It was comforting in its weightiness. the way it enfolded you with gravitas. Marriage of Convenience is one of my favourite tropes and it’s hard to pull off in a modern setting. Kat and Dan (omg Dan is the Alpha of all Beta Heroes) had their lives intersect over the past 6 books due to their social circles. Kat’s been infatuated with Dan for most of that time, and as any girl with a crush does, she avoids Dan as much as she can. Kat’s the heiress to Seventeen Billion dollars and as heiresses do, she has a bajillionty secrets. Turns out Dan has a few secrets of his too, including his own infatuation with Kat that was tempered by one night in Vegas. When Kat turns to Dan with the most bizarre of requests, will Dan be the answer to her prayers in more way than one?

The thing I love about Penny’s Characters is that you can see elements of yourself in them, for me, particularly in her Heroines (I’m a cis-het woman after all). Penny reminds me of Kristen Ashley in that way, that, after reading one of her books, you feel like you’ve been looking in a mirror, seeing parts of yourself reflected back at you, and you wonder if you want to keep that element of yourself, or change it for something new, something better. That’s what good literature does, I think, make you reexamine yourself and the world around you. Penny is a good literaturist.
