Marriage of Inconvenience was a nice start to The Manning Sisters spin-off series, Those Manning Men. It is a sweet story of two best friends who've had one too many bad dating experiences and have given up on traditional love and marriage. However, both of them badly want a child of their own, so they agree to enter into a marriage of convenience with the intention of producing one via artificial insemination. Things don't exactly go as planned, and before they know it,

What started out as a great idea plummeted into a "why am I still reading this clap trap"
The story could have been so good - plenty of angst in the beginning and multiple ways that Debbie could have turned it on it's head. Instead all that was written was a hoo hum "drama" of a typical marriage of convenience business arrangement issue ... And that could have been solved in 3 chapters ... instead it went on and on and on and on and ... you get the picture
I used to love Debbie's stand alone drama
This started out really well but Jamie irritated me so much,i kind off dislike her by the time i finished,keeps turning hot/cold towards Rich hurting him and making matter worse and complicated,anyways even after Jamie's hot/cold fluctuations which lead to misunderstandings they do manage to get their HEA

Okay read

I thought this book was a bit hokey, to be honest. I was on board with a plot beginning with a marriage between platonic friends, but the instant jealousy afterward was a little creepy. There were too many details that were just too unrealistic to be clever.

This is another story that could and should have been longer I felt. Good fast read there is just a lot more that could have been included in the story.

#1 in a series The title really gives the story away, but there are so many funny things going on with Jamie and Rich who have been friends since high school. They are best friends but they don't realize that they could be more then friends.

Typical light romance where hero and heroine are misunderstanding each other and madly in love. How oh how do the figure it out?

I don’t know why but this one made my smile. Cute and a little formulaic but simple, straightforward and something that cheered me up today. I needed it! Perfect stress antidote.

Reread of an old favorite romance novel. Nothing surprising, but totally enjoyable.
