Reading Romance's Challenge 2013 - January

Reading Romance's January Challenge: Marry me? –  Marriage of convenience. An arranged or forced marriage leads to love.


Waking Up Married by Mira Lyn Kelly

Connor Reed really needs a wife, but doesn’t want the drama that accompanies the nuptials. All he’s looking for is a beautiful woman to plan his parties and bear his children.

Megan Scott wants a baby. She’s done with all the relationship crap. She doesn’t have the time nor the energy, and as soon as she can escape her friend’s wedding in Las Vegas, she’s going to hit the sperm bank.

Except after a long night and waaaay too much alcohol, Megan wakes up—you guessed it—married! While she panics—between heaves—and insists upon a divorce, Connor proposes a different plan; to stay married. *gasp*

This novel is a very cute happily-ever-after story that actually brought me to tears. Well-written with believable and loveable characters, Waking up Married is a great read for any contemporary romance fan.

4 Stars.
