Series: Charleston Series #2
Published by Self-Published on 06/28/2018
He really needs a wife. Stat.
All Beau Montgomery, one of Charleston’s most eligible bachelors, wants to do is build boats. He has no interest in marriage whatsoever … until it means he might not get his inheritance and he can kiss his boat building dreams goodbye. But the hungry hordes of Charleston debutantes looking to score a Montgomery scare him sh*tless.
There's not a chance in hell she'll say yes
Gwen has loved Beau Montgomery since she used to run barefoot around the marina as scrappy teenager. Knowing she’ll never fit into his high society family, she decided long ago that she’d become his indispensable best friend rather than not be in his life at all. When he tells her he needs to marry in order to fulfill his dreams, she panics that he might actually meet someone and she’ll lose him forever.
Now this is what I hope for when I read a Natasha Boyd book. Full disclosure: Accidental Tryst was not my favorite. I liked it okay, but it wasn’t even close to the love I have for Natasha’s other books. Inconvenient Wife, however, was much more what I love and expect.
I loved the circumstances that Gwen and Beau found themselves in. I thought it was an interesting premise. The whole arranged marriage thing has been done before, but not quite this way. This book pulled on my emotions and didn’t at all go the way I expected it to.
There is one thing I have to mention. There was a couple of times where I didn’t really understand the characters’ motivations for saying or doing something. I’d be a little lost. I distinctly remember one part of the story where Gwen is really angry and hurt and I was so confused as to why. Overall I understand, but I think maybe just some better inner dialogue might have helped.
Ultimately, I thought Gwen and Beau’s story was a really cute, sweet, slow-burn friends-to-lovers romance. It had everything that I want in a good book and I recommend it if you’re in the mood for something that’s not too heavy.
