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?


So I finished the galley back in January, right? and I was glad that I had a lot of time still because I didn't know how to review this book. I told myself I was gonna reread this again before its release so I could review it properly for the blog tour, but guys, I've read this book three times and I still don't know how to express my feelings coherently to do this book justice. 

I love it, obviously. I loved the glimpses we had of Dan and Kat throughout the KiTC series, and I was super stoked to finally read their book. Marriage of Inconvenience was everything I've wanted and more. It has the trademark Penny humour, sexiness (BOY, THE SEXY), and of course, an amazing cast of characters. We get to reunite with the gang again, experience some scenes that happened in Book 6 from different POVs, and most importantly we finally got to see Kat and Dan actually being together instead of just circling each other.

Dan and Kat were super cute as a unit. They've been having feels for each other since the first time they met, and now Kat needed saving from her evil cousin, so Dan went to her rescue and married her. It sounded a bit silly when I put it this way but trust me, it all made sense in the story. The thing that I loved the most about marriage of convenience stories (or hell, just books with married couples) is the domestic scenes. Sure, sex scenes are great and all but scenes where the one half of your OTP welcomes the other half home from his trip overseas with a homemade cake and they end up eating it in the middle of the night together and talking??? EVEN GREATER. I love how Dan and Kat navigated through their married life, and how they support each other. I also truly enjoyed all of Dan's swearings, and his relationship with his mom. 

Overall, I truly don't know what to say anymore other than I love it. It's a bit sad that the series is over but what a finale! My heart is so full after the epilogue. THANK YOU, Penny, for the epilogue.

Ps. Stan needs a novella.
