ROMANCE: Marriage of Convenience
This was my 2nd book by Tracey Livesay and I enjoyed it. For me, marriage of convenience can be hit or miss but I really liked how up front both Marcus and Pamela were about what they wanted. Neither one had any romantic expectation going in even though feelings quickly got in the way. Marcus was pretty ruthless all the way to the end and I wish he could have softened sooner, but overall I liked his character.
Pamela Harrington: Helping the G street women's shelter is all that matters to Pamela. They were there for her when she needed them and she wants to repay the kindness. If only her father, The Senator, could love and respect her for who she is instead of what she represents. She's tired of men who only see her name and pedigree but don't want her for her compassion and intelligence.
Marcus Pearson: A ruthless businessman, Marcus has dreamed of the day when he would own the Holcomb, a luxurious hotel in DC, just to spite the man who humiliated his mother years ago. But his "new money" isn't good enough and he needs someone who fits in the world of "old money".
-- The maturity of both characters was really refreshing and I appreciated how they went about setting up their marriage of convenience. Like two actual adults they worked out what each wanted and how they would go about it. It's not romantic necessarily, but it was nice to read a marriage of convenience where one of the characters wasn't already romantically invested and just desperate to be with the object of their affection in any way they could.
-- Pamela was a really enjoyable character; she was so compassionate and genuine. She loves helping at the shelter and she's willing to do anything, even marry a stranger, to help save it from being sold.
-- Marcus was a pretty tough shell to crack all the way to the end. He's worked years and years to accomplish his dream and he won't let anything get in his way. But this also means stomping over anything or anyone who gets in his way. He's pretty ruthless through most of the story and it's not up until the very end that he realizes what's most important in life.
Pamela Harrington is sick of being perceived as a way to get to her powerful father, who expects her to toe the society line -- even when it comes to her charitable involvements. She sees marriage to Marcus as a way to stand up to her father while protecting a women's shelter that means so much to her.
It's hard to imagine how a marriage of convenience plot can work in a contemporary romance, but this debut author makes it sizzle! The stakes are high for both of them and the attraction is immediate and electric! Both H/H have believable motivation for what they want out of the union and they fall in love in an organic way. I wanted this relationship to work out and I was blissfully satisfied with their happily ever after!
