In The Tycoon's Convenient Bride..., Mack and Lauren, who have known each other since childhood, are thrown into a marriage of convenience when Lauren's brother and his wife go missing and someone needs to take care of their child. Per the stipulations in her brother's will, Mack and Lauren get married to take on the care of her niece. Although the events leading up to this are a little farfetched (I would think the welfare of the child should be considered more when allocating caretakers, as opposed to making sure they are a married couple, but oh well...), I like a good marriage of convenience story as much as the next person. I think what made this story more real is that both Mack and Lauren had some sort of initial attraction to each other, even if it was hidden from the other.
I liked how the author developed the relationship between Mack and Lauren. They definitely could have had better communication, but that made the story more interesting. I kept waiting for the point when the two would figure out and resolve their issues and become a real couple and family.
I'm going to be completely honest, some of the bedroom talk got to me. I just wasn't feeling some of the language and it took away from the story because it stuck with me throughout the book. I've read other novels by Shoshanna Evers and really liked them, so it disappointed me that I wasn't completely in love with The Tycoon's Convenient Bride..., but overall, this is a sweet, romantic story about two people who come together to raise a child and end up becoming a genuine family. If marriage of convenience books are your thing, I would definitely recommend this as a quick read. It's perfect for the beach or to have on hand during a long trip.
