ARC Review: His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers

This is a great book for all you contemporary romance lovers. This is an especially good book for readers who like Cinderella stories and surprise babies. I like all of those things but I just need a little more edge and grit with my romance. So I could appreciate this book for what it was but I like my romance a bit dirtier.

Senna was an intern at Medina Enterprises when she had a one night stand with the Medina heir and CEO, Marcos Medina. When the book starts out Senna is working hard at a dead end job, struggling to make ends meet and she is the Mother to Marco's 6 month old son. Senna tried to tell Marcos she was pregnant but for a number of reasons, not all of which are entirely logical, she couldn't reach him for a year after their one night together. Which brings me to another important, if not petty point. If it was one year between the time Marcos left the country after sleeping with Senna and the time she delivered their baby, the baby should have been 2 or 3 months old, not 6 months. Ok, that is picking of nits, but it was bothering me the whole time.

Anyway, Marcos is a guy who is completely dedicated to his family and specifically to his role in the family empire. Marcos has spent his whole life believing that his most significant duty is to fulfill his role as the Medina heir by marrying the daughter of another powerful family and merging their business empires. Marcos allows himself his relationship or rather one night stand with Senna because he can't resist her but that doesn't change his commitment to getting married. And then Marcos finds out that he has a son with the one woman who made him question his unwavering dedication to his mission in life.

Marcos immediately comes up with an A hole plan that will kind of make you hate him. He comes around quickly though and realizes that a life without Senna is really no life at all. Being a father is good for Marcos. It makes him rethink what it means to be a son and what he wants his son to get out of life. There is some palace intrigue thrown in that has some rather predictable results but it's all in good fun. If you don't need hardcore erotic content and like the more flowery romance, this book might even be like a 5 star read for it and I would highly recommend it. For me, it wasn't right up my alley but I still thought the author did a very good job with this genre and I enjoyed the story.
