The old saying that life is what happens while you are busy making other plans may fit everyone’s life somewhat, but that statement is carried to an extreme in Megan Kelly’s enchanting tale, “The Marriage Solution.” You can plan, but you can’t predict may be a more appropriate motto for the two protagonists in this romance. You won’t be disappointed in the intertwined paths these two take. If it’s true that it’s not the destination, it’s the journey, this journey, fraught with rough patches and ...more
Decent story set in small town Missouri near Kansas City. Somehow I just didn't feel quite as drawn into the story as I could have been. There were a couple of issues that I felt were solved with a magic wand and once the heroine was a total bitch to the hero which he didn't deserve. Maybe the two of them were so wrapped up in what was going on with their respective kids and families that it felt as if there own relationship was shortchanged a bit. Still over all a nice read.
Extenuating circumstances forced single mother Tara Montgomery and new father of a four-year-old daughter Dylan Ross into a temporary marriage in an effort to ease their complicated situations. As Tara battled with grandparental rights over her three-year-old son, Dylan learned to cope with his grieving child he never knew existed.

“The Marriage Solution” was a sweet straight-forward story dealing with complicated family dynamics in contemporary times. Adding a family environment surrounded with

Thank you so much, I am really looking forward to receiving the book!

I love fun reads, and this is one was perfect!

It's about couple (Tara & Dylan) that join forces out of need, two single parents. Tara was deserted by her playboy boyfriend upon hearing of her pregnancy and Dylan finds himself a parent of a four year old daughter Lily he never knew existed until her mother died.

The two have the total support of Dylan’s family, but Tara's wealthy parents had preferred an abortion over a grand

At first glance, the solution seems obvious. Tara Montgomery needs stability to fight off a custody claim from her son’s seed donor family and Dylan Ross needs help with the daughter he never knew existed. Their attraction for each other is just a side benefit, at least in playboy Dylan’s eyes and an annoyance for Tara.

Watching Tara and Dylan grow while playing house gives the reader a fun look into the challenges of pretend intimacy. I love the way Ms. Kelly uses the theme of family in the boo

Well this one was a delightful surprise!

Tara is a single mom who works in a daycare, Dylan is a reformed-playboy who suddenly finds himself the father of a little girl who had been kept secret from him. Aside from these two children, there's also a whole gang of nieces and nephews in tow. Tara and Dylan come up with "The Marriage Solution" to fight off an impending custody battle for Tara's son.

This is really a story about family as much as it is about Tara and Dylan finding each other. Readin
a real sweetie! i cud feel them both falling in love and i loved how it happened gradually after they 1st met. they did rush into marriage but then it was like dylan had been waiting for her all of his life, even if he did not realise it. the kids just made this an even sweeter read!;-)

3.5 Stars

It was a cute book with a nice marriage of convenience storyline. I liked Dylan and Tara, the story was well written.
This was one of the best American Romances I've read in quite a while! It was romantic but also "real". The plot dealt with a lot of issues and the author did a great job showing the couple work through those things together, which made the love story really believable.

Kelly creates wonderful people next door characters that you can't help but care about.
