    So ... I powered through the WTFery because I like Yvonne Lindsey. But probably anyone else and I would've DNF'd it right there. The hero and heroine sign up with a dating agency that uses all sorts of compatibility tests - psych evals and such to match you with the "perfect person" and of course *eyeroll* they have a 100% success rate. All of this is fine ... BUT WAIT. As part of using the dating agency you SIGN A CONTRACT that you will marry the person THE FIRST TIME YOU MEET THEM. WHICH IS LITE So ...

All of this is fine ... BUT WAIT. As part of using the dating agency you SIGN A CONTRACT that you will marry the person THE FIRST TIME YOU MEET THEM. WHICH IS LITERALLY AT THE ALTAR. LITERALLY. ... LITERALLY CONTRACT TO MARRY UPON FIRST MEETING. AT THE ALTAR. WHAAAAAAAATTTTT. I mean obviously you can BREAK the contract and stuff but ... like ... I ... whut. Like ... whut. I mean - I don't practice K law and I get I have a LOT of issues there but ... ugh. And of course the [part?] owner of the company is the hero's grandmother. (Which actually IMO made that more palatable?) Because she KNOWS knows him? ... I wanted to knee the hero in the balls. Like - sure the heroine didn't SEE him fucking his ... coworker - but it was NOT AT ALL unreasonable for her to make the assumption because not only was there the naked coworker IN THEIR MARRIAGE BED all rumpled and shit - but the fact that the room "smelled like sex" AND THE BITCH COWORKER INDICATED HER HUSBAND WAS SHOWERING. Like ... yeah. Sure he said "baby I didn't do it" but ... come on, my guy. Come. The. Fuck. On. COME ON. And then HE'S STILL WORKING WITH HER AND DOESN'T BELIEVE HIS WIFE. So sure - I guess maybe she should've ran into the shower to confirm for herself it was her husband showering off his adulterous sex? [Does that sound ridiculous? ... It sounds a little ridiculous to me ...] Granted the heroine has issues - but like ... I definitely think he was the bad actor. "You should believe me just because what I said, ignoring all evidence" - he says he was neglectful, that they didn't have a deep relationship... I appreciate he's REALLY trying the second time around. [Other than being a fucking jackass moron re: his bitch employee...] And sure their attraction and chemistry is off the charts ... But I felt the heroine took on way too much in the "blame" - and yeah yeah I get relationships take work etc from both parties - but like - she acknowledges she has issues but like, friend, ANYONE would have come to the conclusions she did? Are you kidding me? ... Anyway ... ugh. Aside from those MAJOR ISSUES - it was really sweet for a second chance romance ... but rehashing this makes me not only want to knee Valentin in the balls but also kick him. Asshat. D+

    What happens when an estranged couple rekindle old flames? This second chance reunion story by Yvonne Lindsay is emotionally gripping and passionately entertaining. I enjoyed the journey Valentin and Imogen took me on. Their story has a dramatic flair to it with raw feelings stirring between them and watching them grow from start to end is so worthwhile. The big question is what will it take to make their marriage work? The answer is quite simple: everything.

    I love a second chance romance, especially when they haven't been shagging everything from here to Christmas in the meantime. Imogene and Valentin have signed up for a Marriage at First Sight style marriage agency and they meet each other at the wedding. However these two have done the whole wedding thing before.

Imogene and Valentin have signed up for a Marriage at First Sight style marriage agency and they meet each other at the wedding. However these two have done the whole wedding thing before. Seven years ago they met and married while doing doctor and teacher volunteering in Africa. They had barely got to know each other when evil OW turns up in the marital bedroom and Imogene is out of there and signing divorce papers without giving Val a chance to say "it wasn't me". Fast forward and they have both made new successful lives for themselves but they feel something lacking in their lives so Val lets his grandmother set him up through her marriage agency and Imogene is the chosen one. These two had a lot to work through. Imogene's trust issues ran deep long before she met Val. Val is still wounded by her abrupt desertion and lack of faith. The Other Woman. I really hate when men are so dumb as to keep the super efficient secretary, PA, colleague, co-worker, family friend around when they have been part of the whole relationship breakup. Especially when they have had some kind of physical relationship with them in the past, pre-heroine. This is not specific to this book. This is just something that bugs me. Otherwise, I really loved the story and looking forward to reading the next in the mini series.

    Well, I'm still looking for that elusive contemporary marriage of convenience story, because this one certainly wasn't it. It falls squarely into second chance romance, which is a trope I enjoy, so I forged ahead. This book is exactly what it says on the tin: Valentin and Imogen are exes, having met, married, and divorced within a couple of months while both were serving on aid trips in some unnamed African country (because apparently it was too hard to pick one). Valentin was a trauma surgeon an Well, I'm still looking for that elusive contemporary marriage of convenience story, because this one certainly wasn't it. It falls squarely into second chance romance, which is a trope I enjoy, so I forged ahead. This book is exactly what it says on the tin: Valentin and Imogen are exes, having met, married, and divorced within a couple of months while both were serving on aid trips in some unnamed African country (because apparently it was too hard to pick one). Valentin was a trauma surgeon and now heads his family pharmaceuticals company; Imogene was a teacher who parlayed her experience into a franchise of daycare centers. Valentin had given the keys to their African home to a colleague to catch some sleep between shifts, and one day Imogene came home to find this female colleague in their bed. She basically took one look at her, decided Valentin was cheating on her, and left immediately, going straight to a lawyer to file divorce papers before fleeing the country to lick her wounds. Seven years later, both are back in the States and both sign contracts with Matches Made in Marriage, a matchmaking company oh-so-conveniently run by his grandmother. Neither are pleased when they see the other waiting at the altar, but Grandma Alice persuades them to give their relationship another go, and they agree. Their contract states they have a 3-month trial period, so they marry and honeymoon and move back to New York together. All is going swimmingly for the most part, until Imogene learns that that long-ago colleague, Carla, works for Valentin as the head of R&D for his company. When she finds out, she has a complete comeapart. So much for building a relationship that's any more mature than their first one. Of course, this being a simplistic, short novel, Carla is just as evil as Imogene suspects and does her level best to drive a wedge between them. Imogene is only too happy to believe the worst about her husband, while Valentin is totally oblivious to Carla's machinations. I didn't like Imogene. She was a complete idiot before and after, and only at the very end (view spoiler)[after Alice has a heart attack at a restaurant and Carla confesses that she's a crazy bitch (hide spoiler)] does she realize how stupid she's been. She's so certain that all the men in the world are like her philandering father that she doesn't give any of them a chance. She gave Valentin an ultimatum: fire Carla or lose me, and of course he fires Carla. How mature of them. Valentin didn't have much in the way of discernible personality: he was basically tall, dark, and handsome, and totally hot for Imogene's bod. He's insanely jealous when he sees her with another man (the new CEO of her company) and he finally begins to understand the depths of his wife's jealousy and insecurity. I didn't believe these two loved each other in the end. Their first marriage was based on lust, and so was their second, even after they finally opened their mouths and had a conversation that didn't include Olympic-levels of conclusion-jumping on either of their parts. The ending was gagworthy (view spoiler)[: surprise! They never really divorced in that unknown African country because incompentent/corrupt local lawyer, so they've always been married to each other, and woo boy was it a good thing neither of them married anybody else in the interim! (hide spoiler)] The novel itself was readable, the prose on the simplistic side, and the plot was telegraphed from the first conversation between the leads. Disappointing, to be sure, but not horrible. This being the Desire line, there was a lot of emphasis on sex scenes and the characters' physical reactions to each other. Without a solid emotional base, tons of sex scenes do nothing for me. I skipped the last one completely. All in all, this was not my bag. I don't think I'll be keeping this book.

And, according to Alice, the owner of Match Made in Marriage and also Valentin’s grandmother, that someone is each other! Imogene has to learn to trust Valentin again. She isn’t going to be like her mother and be in a marriage that has no respect for the other. Valentin needs to prove to Imogene he isn’t like her father. He realizes he should have worked harder to save their first marriage. Their road to truth and happiness is rocky, but one thing remaining through it all is their passion for each other. When an author creates characters that can annoy you, or make you feel anything, then the author has done an outstanding job writing. Ms. Lindsay does exactly this in “Inconveniently Wed.”

    Another lovely story from Yvonne Lindsay, Inconveniently Wed is very definitely a second chance at love story.

Imogene and Valentin Horvath first married years ago while they were volunteering in Africa, he as a doctor and she as a teacher. First time round these two gave in to the immediate attraction they felt for each other and tumbled hastily into a a marriage based largely on that attraction. That marriage ended when Imogene found one of Valentin’s colleagues in their bed, clearly relaxing after sex. Imogene is led to believe that Valentine was Clare’s willing partner and divorces him. Brought together by dating agency Match Made In Marriage, neither Imogene nor Valentin are willing to go through with their wedding though eventually they agree to a three month trial. This story is well written and engaging - I really enjoyed reading it though I couldn’t help but wonder at the actions of Clare, the woman scorned in Africa, given that she is supposed to be highly intelligent and highly skilled. Aside from Clare, this is a lovely weekend read to relax with.

    I found this to be an enjoyable read. This is the second in Yvonne Lindsay's Marriage at First Sight series. As with book 1 Tangled Vows, the heroine Imogene meets her hero Valentin for the 'first time' at the altar, and quickly learns that the company Match Made in Marriage that she enlisted to find her a husband is run by Alice Horvath, the grandmother or nagymama of the groom. It could just be that I was in a reflective mood when I read the book, but the challenges/conflict faced by the main c I found this to be an enjoyable read.

It could just be that I was in a reflective mood when I read the book, but the challenges/conflict faced by the main characters of this book did make me think about how much our family and upbringing can colour how we view things as adults. Seeing the edges of what has happened to Valentin's brother Galen during this story, I'm looking forward to seeing what is in store for him in the next book, Vengeful Vows (that the author's website leads me to believe is due to be released in April 2019). I'm also curious to see if there will be further stories for the remaining Horvath cousins.

Not only do they deal with their newfound remarriage, they also face the issues that caused their marriage to dissolve in the first place. Only Ms. Linsday can weave such stories. She has a way about her characters finding their happily ever after. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I’d like to disclose that I received an advance copy of Inconveniently Wed. I chose to read and review it and this is my true and honest opinion.

They agree to give the marriage a second chance. This time around the two of them decide to take things slowly. Imogene was crushed when she caught another woman in her bed which led to the divorce. Valentin tried to make Imogene let him explain that he never cheated. Lots of trust issues and a sneaky “ other” woman drama.
