His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers was a well written and very entertaining read.
The storyline held my attention all throughout the book, the characters Senna and Marco were strong, passionate and very stubborn people who knew what they wanted out of life and went after it.
While I did enjoy His Family of Convenience I did find it a little off putting how long it takes our hero, Marco to realise he can't be without Senna, and that she means more to him than a legacy that in the end w

His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers is the first book in The Medina Legacy series.

A second chance romance with a baby included? Oh yeah, count me in!

This is one of my favorite tropes, reason why I decided to read it. I liked Senna and Marco's story, just didn't quite loved them. However, I do want to point out that it was a very enjoyable read. I do have a soft spot for this kind of stories.

As I mentioned above, this is one of my favorite plots so no problem there. I liked

After months of working together, their attraction could not be denied. But after that night, she never heard from Marco again.

Senna has not had an easy life. Struggling most of her life, she is no stranger to hard work and determination to get what she wants. After years of hard work, she has her degree, bu

His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers is a 2nd chance love story which is one of my favorite types of books to read. Senna Callas had one night stand with her boss Marco Medina at the end of her internship. She worked all those months with him and everything exploded with him at the end of her time with her boss into a night of passion. It was hot and beautiful, a night that couldn’t be stopped or denied. But after that night, she never heard from Marco again.

*A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley and I'm freely giving my honest review.*

I liked this story and I think one of the reasons is because of the prospect of rejoining a family. Families are what makes my heart soften.

I was however frustrated with both Marco and Senna at some point in this story. Him, because he shouldn't have given in to his family for so long. Her, because she should have had more guts to stand up for herself and her son.

In the beginning I thought S

When Senna looks up at her next customer from behind the bar where she is pouring drinks, the last person she expects to see is Marco Medina, her ex boss at the company she interned at and the father of her child. She isn't happy to see him, after many attempts to reach him after finding out she's pregnant after their one night of passion, her anger still hard to mask. He ghosts out on her. Disappearing the next day. Marco has his big boy pants in a knot thinking that she's been hiding his son f ...more

His Family of Convenience was A-FREAKING-MAZING. No lie I so enjoyed this book. The characters, the story, everything from start to finish had me flipping the pages in rapid succession. Amy Ayers is a new author to me, but she is on my forever love list.

Senna has a one-night stand with her super sexy boss one night at an office party before Senna’s internship ended. Marco had never been attracted to anyone the way he was with Senna and so he wanted her bad. When a family emergency forces them a

Marco, Marco, Marco.... What can I say about Marco. He is true to his word. He is loyal to his family. He is strong, handsome, kind, and selfless. With the weight of his family's legacy on his shoulders he follows and archaic tradition to marry someone he doesn't love. But will that all be changed when Senna walks into his life?

Senna wanted more for herself and her Grandmother. Never knowing her father and her mother

This was a lot more fun than what I was expecting. I thought okay alpha male gets what he wants, end of story. Well, not so fast…
Senna Callas is an intern that had worked at Medina Enterprises. She was rough around the edges but a fast learner and brought a lot to the table. A person who could think out of the box and be taught too.

I thought this was a great read. It's very well written and I really enjoyed these characters. Senna was so gracious and not angry like many women would be. Marco was intriguing. Trying to live up to everyone's expectations yet never going for what he really wants. A terrific story of family loyalty and love and I book I definitely recommend to everyone.

His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers is Book 1 of The Medina Legacy Series.

Now this book has it all...the feels, oh my goodness the feels. The chemistry between Marco and Senna is off-the-charts and you can’t help but get caught up in their story as we watch this dynamic duo struggle to find their way to having it all. His Family of Convenience is one hot read with a second chance at love troupe that will suck you in real quick!

His Family of Convenience is sexy, but a little angsty. Senna hasn't had an easy life at all. Her grandmother, who raised her, is sick, and Senna is taking care of her, Senna's own son, and herself, all while working two jobs and looking for more, just so she can keep the lights on at home. Thank God for her best friend and roommate, Abby, who is a live in baby sitter and all around amazing person.

Senna hasn't seen her ex-boss Marco since their one night stand. She's tried to get in touch with him but he always ignores her.

Interesting read! Love the story and the characters. From the start up to the last, I was hooked. The characters, Senna and Marco are interesting. There may be times that I don't like Marco, but I love everything about Senna! With Marco being the heir and torn between his feelings for Senna and his duty, things will get more interesting and intense. Overall, I love this book. It's full of surprises and intense. Liked it!

A story of second chances when two lovers are reunited. They will discover that family bonds are sacred but when laced with secrets, responsibilities are worthless without love.

Don't miss this adventure that spans Miami to Barcelona.

It is a well written story but you have to accept that there is an arranged marriage for business reasons, I found it hard to get to grips with this and therefore found it hard to be sympathetic with the hero of the story.

Loved! In this novel, Senna is a struggling single parent of a six month old baby - the result of a single night of recklessness with her former boss. After their night, it's as though he disappeared from the face of the earth despite her numerous attempts to contact him...until he walks into the bar she's waitressing at.

Before long, she finds herself doing exactly what Marco wants, even as she bumps up against his family obligations and pressures. His obligations allow no room for her in her li

This arc was given to me by Netgalley for an honest review.
This is a stand alone book but I really hope to read about the other Medina men soon.

This is a second chance romance book about Marco, CEO of a huge family run corporation with strong family obligations ( like being betrothed since childhood), and Senna, former employee of Marco, currently working as a bartender, and the mother of the 6 month old Medina heir.
Marco and Senna are explosive together. The chemistry jumps right off the page.

I think that this is the first time I've felt sorry for both the fiance and the other woman. Marco has his future set for him, his entire life. It's not the life that he would have picked, but he is willing to do his duties to his family. Senna just wants her son to have a happy life. If that means sharing him with Marco and his intended, then so be it. WTH! I don't know how she could do that. Some hard choices are made by all the characters that makes this a truly enjoyable book.

I loved His Family of Convenience by new to me author Amy Ayers. This novel flowed effortlessly from beginning to end, and the entertaining plot kept me glued to my seat. A one-night stand, an unwanted marriage of convenience, and unbreakable family traditions, all come together to create the heart of this story.

I think this story flowed very nicely. It took me a little time to warm up to Marco. Sometimes he was a little too high handed and bossy for me. I probably could have told him off a few times. But in the end, I did like him and was glad for his change of heart. Senna was a sweet character, perhaps a little bit of a pushover. However, I liked how she took care of her son and did all she could for her relationships.
