Not The Marrying Kind has the same kind of vibe as Strictly Professional and I was immediately hooked. The group of characters was the highlight of the story. I adored every one of them. Fiona and Max were amazing. Witty and entertaining dialogue. Their chemistry was off the charts. Sizzling. A certain motorcycle scene was exquisitely erotic. I didn’t know what to do with myself except fanning and gasping for air. These two just meshed to perfection. Flirting and teasing one another. I couldn’t get enough. They both learn to face their fears, seize the moment and just let go. All because of love. I was so there for it.
The side characters were amazing too. Max’s pop was so sweet and I enjoyed his relationship with his son Max. His two friends Mateo and Rafael along with Fiona’s family were top notch as well. I can’t rave enough about this ensemble. I was all smiles from start to finish.
Not The Marrying Kind is why I love to read the friends to lovers trope. Then add this perfect ensemble of characters. Well, stick a fork in me I’m done!

Their chemistry is so off the charts that I feared my tablet was going to go up in flames from a five alarm fire. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
Fiona Quinn, thinks that with her charts and organizational skills, she is going to be able to find her soulmate and husband in just eighteen months using a contract to keep her on task.
In her family she is the odd duck. The one who keeps her head and those she loves above water. She is the rule follower, who doesn't submit to the chaos that is her family.
Max Devlin, is the hot, motorcycle riding, bad boy who doesn't do dating or commitments.
He is a free spirit who doesn't stay in one place too long. Always looking for somewhere new to visit.
He knows how to please a woman. He's a no less than a three orgasam guy who would love to worship at Fiona's feet for just one night.
Max, is back in town because his father, who runs The Red Room, New York Cities last remaining punk rock club, is being sued for back rent and asks Fiona for help, which she gladly gives, because The Red Room was like a second home for her and her family as was the owner Pops.
As Max and Fiona team up, as friends, to save The Red Room, things start to shift between them until their attraction can no longer be denied.
What away to start of 2021, with the hottest romance book of the year.
Kathryn Nolan, knows how to write romance and this book is her best yet! 😍
It's evident in Pop's history with The Red Room, The Quinn's huge hearts, and the soundtrack of beautiful chaos woven through the book (and on Spotify--definitely listen while you read). Not the Marrying Kind is a balm to my soul during a time of disconnection, where I think everyone just misses meeting our loved, hearing great music, and being present in the moment. This book gave me that so clearly, as well as tender moments with beloved characters and smoking hot chemistry.
If ever there was a book released for the times, it is this book at this time for me. I'm not cool enough to be punk like the Quinns, but they make me feel brave enough to chase my own joy as authentically as they do. Few authors can create this connection between reader and characters, and Kathryn Nolan makes it look deceptively easy with each release. Put on some music, read the book, and own your joy-filled part of your community.
Fiona, daughter of rockers, is a spreadsheet loving, make a plan and get it done, lawyer. Fiona has conquered every goal she has set for herself with the exception of one, being married by 30. When Fiona and Max pair up to help Max's dad, things get complicated in this opposites attract, slow burn, emotionally fraught romance.
Kathryn Nolan did a superb job creating dynamic, witty, and loveable characters as usual. However, she went above and beyond with the punk rock world she created. Locations so carefully detailed that it is as if I could feel and hear the surroundings being described. Oh! And music! The music was such a stimulating, exquisite, and momentous addition to the story. The entire book is impeccable with a sense of love, family, community, and belonging.
