Inconvenient Wife

  

Inconvenient Wife

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.

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.

 

 

 

What are sure signs of the fact that you are reading a good book ? Well there are a few that is for sure – the most significant ones for me are

 

  • Not wanting to put the book down – which includes sneaking into toilets during parties to read a few pages ( #MeLaughing Penelope Ward totally “borrowed” that from me for her book – I AM JOKING- Kind of … sort of … well not sure who did it first )
  • Talking with your book – which includes being in open spaces with other people wondering what that weird women is doing
  • Crying and Laughing during reading – which includes (see above mentioned)
  • FINALLY … the intense feeling of wanting to punch or hug virtual characters in real life … either because you want to make them see what is right in front of them, comfort them or (and well there is no nice way to say it) because they are assholes.

So let’s check “Inconvenient Wife” by Natasha Boyd …

  • I spend an almost all-nighter including the need to wear sunglasses this morning because outside is really bright and I mean REALLY..
  • Trust me I was talking a lot with that book ….
  • First I was laughing, – then crying – then there was a moment when I gulped and then my heart was breaking …. And that was not even the end of it …
  • And then my favorite part … the wish to somehow get in touch with the virtual character … in this case here ? well it was me wanting to PUNCH some sense into both of them …

So the essence of that rant ? I just read a good book …

When I read Accidental Tryst I already met Beau as a secondary character and again here in this book you will see Trystan who featured that book.  Looking closely both books go along with each other so you might almost read them in any order – Still I would think reading Accidental Tryst first would be the best choice.

I really loved Beau – he was a well written character with only one flaw … he was to stupid to see what is right in front of him (sorry to be so blunt – but its how I felt)

Beau is working on finally reaching the goal he truly wants and that is to built boats (no spoiler here) and his life (meaning his family) is really doing everything to make sure he wanders off course – not that he wants to but with everything that’s thrown his way there are really only few options left.

Gwen was such a great character (and I don’t say that often about the female lead) …  her interaction with beau and her reactions to his problems were spot on. I loved how she loves him …. It was the kind of love that can only come from true friendship and from people that share a soul . She was willing to do anything to help him reach his goal – but she did not loose herself even if it hurt.  A very admirable streak.

Not going into the details but please expect twists and turns – smoke and mirrors …. And hope for the best …
