OMG where do I begin with this review. I know I don't want to give away to many spoilers because this is one book that you have to read. You will laugh, cry, and scream at your kindle while reading this and you will have so many emotions when your done reading it. I laughed so hard at times my stomach hurt and then there were times I yelled at my kindle like get it together you two and just seal the deal already and give us a epic story to enjoy.

This was a good read. Brianna and Liam both need some help. This is how they end up married. They spend the book getting to know each other. Of course by the end they are in love and get their HEA.

Man of Matrimony is my first book by author Thea Dawson. It was at times sweet and funny, crazy and outrageous at others.
A fake marriage turned love affair, this was a fun, fast read with a strong mind, feisty heroine, Bree is nobody’s fool, except for one thing. Her boss. He’s not the man she thought he was and now she needs help getting her foot back in the door of the business world after being tarred by her boss’s brush (with the law).
Liam needs help too, of the green card variety.

This is a new author to me, but I will certainly be looking out for her work in the future. Liam and Brianna are as opposite as can be, but when they are both in a predicament, which is Liam needs a green card to stay in the United States, and Brianna have just lost her high powered job, a marriage of convenience is the answer. Will these two be able to ignore the undeniable chemistry? No spoilers; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed. This is a well written story which is humorous, ...more

Man Of Matrimony was a good story it is a instant hit for me from the fist page the very last every word that was written just had me hooked and wanting more stories by Thea Dawson and this being the first one that I have had the pleasure of reading . The characters growth was perfect we get to see how the characters learn from one another and to share themselves with each other . I hope this isn't the last we see of the couple would love to see how they are doing .

This book is at turns sweet, funny, steamy and frustrating. MAN OF MATRIMONY is a fake marriage romance between handsome, charming and very Irish Liam and smart, uptight Brianna. Liam needs a green card in order to stay in the country, and Brianna needs someone to help her financially until she can find a job in the business world. Liam has a good job lined up, but the job won’t be his unless he can prove he is on his way to getting a green card. Brianna has lost her standing in the business wor ...more

I keep thinking Thea Dawson can't top the couples in her previous books, but with each new book she proves me wrong!

I was excited to finally get to know Brianna better. Just as with Annabelle and Carina there is more to her than most people see. She is the serious one, the business-minded one, and the one some people perceive as cold. They don't see her big heart, her goal of working for a company that will make a difference in the world, and that she has been hurt before.

The way this reader would describe the main male character is "a right rascal". He seems to be a really happy-go-lucky fellow but this does not correlate into a shallow character. He has ambitions and goals, but he is also a great people person, tight with his "mates", strong feelings for family, a warm heart, a man of his word. The main female character is one strong, determined, loyal woman of her word. With this wee bit of commonality, this pair forge a trail along a winding road to coupledom ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. This is the third book in a series and I have not read the two previous books, but this book works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. In fact I liked it so much that I will be looking at reading the previous two novels. I loved, loved, loved this story!

Liam is a smart, charming, easygoing Irishman, and a bit of a rogue with a heart of gold, who needs a green card to stay in the country. Brianna is the slightly uptight, very intellig

Man of Matrimony by Thea Dawson is the third book in the Gentlemen Inc., series. However, it can be read as a standalone and be completely enjoyable! This is the first book I have read by Thea but it won't be my last! Thea crafted a book that is lively, witty, emotion filled and has two fabulous main characters! There is Liam, a bartender/escort/app inventor/rugby playing hunky Irishman, who wants to stay in sunny California but his green card is expiring and will need to return to Ireland. Then ...more

Brianna is at a low point in her life when the CEO of her company is charged with fraud and she as COO could be considered a potential accomplice or at least found at fault for not discovering it. Now she’s out of work with black marks on her professional reputation, so no one will hire her, and over extended on a condo mortgage and other bills she can no longer afford.

None of these will help her when the company, she has put her heart and soul into, is sinking under scandal. Liam is her date for a charity event the day the scandal breaks. He convinces her that holding her head high and attending will help prove her innocence. Can he use his charm to convince her a marriage of convenience is the answer to both their troubles?

Brianna Winter is a young, high power COO of an up and coming tech company and she lives for her job. With no time to date, she hires an escort to accompany her to a charity auction where contacts and money are the driving factor for her attendance.

This story of Brianna, the COO of a tech company and the frosty sister of the Winter girls, meets her match with Liam, the utterly charming Irishman who needs a green card to stay in the country. Ms. Dawson always knows how to tell a romantic, sassy and sexy story, but in this third book of the Gentlemen's Inc. series, she adds Irish wit and poetry to her arsenal. The first chapter starts off with a bang and the book takes the reader on a journey filled with disappointment, fun and unexpected fe ...more

I started out not really liking Bree. Even after her job situation occurred, I didn't feel much about it. Ice Princess was the perfect term for her.

With Liam's help, Bree started to slowly thaw out, and she grew more likeable. That's when I started to cheer for their success.

I didn't like Bree's father at all. Not at the beginning of the book, and not at the end. Forget the fatherly concern, he just came across as a manipulative, rather unpleasant man.

It took a while, but the book became more

Brianna is focused entirely on work. She is the COO of a successful Technologies company who suddenly loses her job due to embezzlement by the companies CEO. Brianna finds herself is substantial financial difficulty and is unable to maintain her lifestyle because she cannot find another job due to the scandal which followed the closing of the technology company.

A steamy, humorous story with a sexy Irishman, Liam and a smart, beautiful, take no nonsense woman, Brianna. She was out of a job because her boss was caught embezzling money, quite a scandal. She was innocent but others in the industry were no longer associating with her since they deemed her guilty by association. Liam was also looking for a position in the tech field. She was in need of money and he was in need of a green card. A marriage of convenience was the solution to their problems. A r ...more

A great read I loved the characters Liam and Brianna, I love an Irish lead character and his banter is perfect the fact that he can get past the ice queen as he so adequately calls her, Brianna's career driven so when things go wrong and Liam offers her a proposition she cant refuse even if it is illegal.

I loved the storyline and the fact that even through all the bad times Liam always manages to put a smile on Brianna's face I guess you can say he has the Irish

So, I recently discovered this author and I was more than excited to read this book and let me tell you all it did not disappoint. It is a slow burn so for those who are not into slow burns just beware. However, I would recommend taking a chance on this book. This book is about Brianna and Liam two very different people that end up getting married so that Liam can get a green card. This marriage is in name only and not real until feelings get involved.

I absolutely loved this book, it had a great mix of humour, heartbreak, determination and hope for happiness. Liam and Brianna are complete opposites which makes their interactions so much more awkward and their banter/sparring will have you giggling.

Bree has been a big character in the first two books of the series and it was finally getting to read about her. Liam my darling charming Irish man is the perfect antidote to the walls Bree has built and he has the perfect solution to their dilemma.

From Fake To Real
By Korkoi

Liam is the typical fun loving Irish man looking to migrate to California and Brianna is the typical straight laced high flying executive. Unfortunately, circumstances cause them to get married but they continue to fight their attraction for each other. There is drama, fun, interfering family, sexy scenes and a happy ending that throws them both. I guarantee you will enjoy reading this book and wouldn’t want to put it down when you start.

Lucky charms!

Brianna loses everything in one fell swoop, her world is turned upside down. Buttondowned, professional and a little rigid she has no Idea what to make of Liam and his proposition.
Irish, charming, handsome, laidback and totally opposite of Brianna, Liam thinks she is his ticket to staying in the US.
But one little kiss starts starts a chain reaction, where will it end?
Sexy, great chemistry, witty and engaging banter and great characters made this a pleasure to read!

An amazing well written light hearted humorous romance pact. This entertaining had me addicted from the beginning with the ups and downs, humor, heartbreak, hope, determination, and hot chemistry. Liam and Brianna are realistic, well developed, and complete oppisites. They come to an agreement to benefit both not counting on the sizzling chemistry, witty banter, laughter and help each other work thru their own issues. Its told from dual POV showing the love that grows in this entertaining laugh ...more
