My intentions are to deserve him.

Marriage of Inconvenience was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I love Penny Reids writing, and I am obsessed with her Knitting in the City series. After 7 books, it feels like these characters are my own friends and family. And knowing this book was Dans just got me that much more excited!!!

This isnt a movie. Sorry, but I do not believe people just get married to protect themselves from greedy family members nefarious scheming.

When her pharma-bro cousin tries to take legal action over her life, Kat must turn to a friend for marriage right away to escape his evil grasp. When she asks her friend Dan, hes happy to help her with her situation.

I wish I could say more than that, but anything else is much too spoilery.

It doesnt seem fair. Im asking so much of you, and you

I don't think any review I write will do this book any justice. For that matter, I doubt any of my reviews do Penny Reid's books justice. So instead of analysing or doing a step by step of the plot, I'm just saying read it. Read the series! Give it a chance, stick through the first book and you will slowly but surely fall in love with the writing, the plots and the characters.

My only regret is that this series is now at an end. I shall live off the re-reads until the next book
A Marriage of Inconvenience with the possibility of more? Sure. Count me in. A Marriage of inconvenience skillfully crafted with engaging characters, a fresh spin to the trope, and a wonderful blend of wit, sexual tension and heartfelt moments that will make it impossible for you to put your eReader down? ABSOLUTELY!

Marriage of Inconvenience is the seventh installment of Penny Reid's Knitting in the City series, but can absolutely be read as a standalone. But if you have read the previous books than you will remember Kat as being the quiet one of the group that. I actually wasn't too sure what to think of her character and I didn't know how her own story would go.

Getting to dig deeper into her character showed us a very strong character, though. Even at

The PERFECT way to end one of my favorite series. Kat and Dans story was so worth the wait.

Marriage of Inconvenience is a story years in the making. Its a story that brings the whole series full circle, brings together the entire Knitting family and made me fall head over heels in love with Dan and Kat. Their journey together was not straight. But it was perfectly them. Ms. Reid created a love story that went above and beyond all my expectations and left me a little weepy but

There were so many things to love about this story. Ive seen bits and pieces of this romance throughout this series that teased the heck out of me and I was happy to have some of my questions answered and to witness this love story unfold.

Dan was my absolute favorite. He was just so freaking real. He was brutally honest, humble, kind-hearted, open-minded, generous, and incredibly alpha without being overwhelming. Even when he struggled to be

Marriage of Inconvenience live

The Knitting in the City series is officially over (insert ugly cry) and what a sendoff. Marriage of Inconvenience is all kinds of wonderful.

Weve seen aspects of Kats personality in previous books through the eyes of the other ladies in the knitting circle. Side note: May I just say how much I adore this diverse group of loyal friends? Anyway, it was delightful to get to know her fully. I really admired Kats ability to be strong and determined, even in the face of her insecurities.

This is prolly the worst book Ive read from PR.

- book was too long
- too convoluted, too many things going on
- H/h had so many issues and misunderstandings
- H/h didnt make love until around 90% of a long-ass book
- Wheres the romance?! I couldnt believe the romance, there was no spark between the H/h.

This would have benefited from more editing and removing / simplifying some side plots. The writing was boring AF.
Bookphenomena (Micky)
I feel a bit overwhelmed having to review this book, probably because the culmination of this book, the series even, has overwhelmed me, most wonderfully. I cannot believe its over but I couldnt be more content, more satisfied and fuzzy with feelings. I have pages and pages of highlights on my kindle of fantastic narrative, dialogue and words that either hit me in the gut or exasperated my husband with the incessant snorting.

Dan and Kit-Kat were everything I hoped and dreamed of, considering Ive
That's it. It's over. No more Knitting in the City folks. Hard to believe this day has come but what a way to go.

If this shitty feeling is love, I'm going to be so pissed.

MARRIAGE OF INCONVENIENCE has been a highly anticipated read for many of us for a long time -- ever since the Vegas Incident -- and I am happy to report that it does not disappoint. Oh, and I also have a new favourite book-boyfriend from this series. Or maybe he ties with Alex. Hard to say. But Dan.. oh man. Dan Dan the

They have this turkey sub with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Its like Thanksgiving in a sandwich, but without the additional seasoning of my drunk uncle Zips politics, or my sister Cathys failed attempts at pumpkin pie.

A lot of emotions Im feeling right now with this book. First, excitement, because Ive been wanting to read Kat and Dans story FOREVER , and let me tell you, it was even better than I could ever imagine. Ive been a die-hard fan of this series since the first book came out and Ive loved them all, a lot, but Marriage Of Inconvenience is truly my favorite, EVER!

The only way I can describe what this book meant to me is by saying it was, a total unicorn of a read, so

Things you need to know about this book:

1. Kat likes cheese. A lot. In this, she is my kindred spirit and I love her.

2. Dan cusses. A lot. If you think Penny has been exaggerating in her warnings about this, SHE IS NOT.

3. You will laugh. You will growl. (Likely in frustration, but if it's for other reasons, no judgement. No judgement here.) This is a SLOW BURN ROMANCE. Just sit back and enjoy it.

This is the long awaited story of Kat & Dan (The Security Man).
It's also the dreaded end (sniff sniff) conclusion of the Knitting in The City series.
In my opinion, Kat has remained the most mysterious of the heroines. Dan has been the most mysterious... least known of all the characters.
Now it's their turn!

They say all good things must come to an end, but I was in blissful denial through my entire reading of Marriage of Inconvenience. I have grown to love this series and its eccentric storylines and characters, so saying goodbye is bittersweet but HOLY MOLY what a phenomenal way to go out with a bang!

"Youre going to bend, and so am I. Were going to compromise, negotiate, and distract each other. Being together means our priorities are going to change. Thats what happens when you make space for another person. Comfort zones will be stretched."

Ms. Penny Reid has written story for every member of knitting group and I don't know how I will ever get over these characters when they all are having their happily ever after. Whenever I finish a KIC book, i feel so hollow and long to have friends

I have so been waiting for Kat and Dans story. Kat is the heiress to a pharmaceutical fortune, and Dan is a former felon and gang member, now security guard and business partner with Quinn. This had a really fun plot with Kats crazy cousin trying to take over the company and have her committed, so Kat needed to find someone to marry on the quick, finally nudging her and Dan together after years of waffling. I completely enjoyed the scenes with the crazy cousin!

I also really appreciated the note

I finished this book last night and the first thing I wanted to do as soon as I woke up was tell everybody how friggin great this book was.

Marriage of Inconvenience is the last book in the "Knitting in the City" Series.
I don't know if you realize the magnitude of this statement.
Since the first book in this series, I've been anxiously awaiting Dan and Kat's story. Every book along the way, we got small little crumbs of what could be between them. This anticipation has grown through this series and here we are, book 7 and we finally get to Dan and Kat. Usually when an author has a series like this and gives little hints about the last couple, they can never live up to the hype or the love story the readers want. Penny Reid has done the (almost) impossible! This book ...more

3.5 stars. Started off really well, but by the second half, the MCs lost the spotlight and swoons, only to be replaced by corporation politics, espionage and a million other things that I had to wade through. Ah well, it was still enjoyable nonetheless and had a HEA 15 years on with all the other characters from this series.

This is it. This is goodbye. This is the story all KitC fans have been waiting years to read. Kat and Dan. And, Oh. My. God.

Well, we find out. We find out how each of them felt after their awkward Vegas night (if you haven't read the bonus scenes Penny provided via her blog and newsletter about Dan and
