Get you angst free pick me up here However you will need to suspend your disbelief like never before, because this contemporary romance might as well be listed as fantasy It s not just because the circumstances in which Lo and Cara fall for each other is far too good to be true which it is It s also because certain character attributes are completely ignored or rewritten and the continuity errors makes me wonder whether this was fan fiction and the author just simply forgot what happened bet Get you angst free pick me up here However you will need to suspend your disbelief like never

between the various chapters and characters See spoilers actual quote from the book view spoiler In CH1 Ansel was gay and I wasn t into men yet in CH18 Lo mentioned I had the feeling if he met the right girl, he would be all in In CH7 he was considered a vault but in CH11 He s not the best at keeping secrets Nitpick 2Isn t it usually up to the landlord who decides who inhabits his her property Yet Lisa the annoying roommate moves out and Lo decides that Cara will be moving in.Nitpick 3They needed the money to move Cara s stuff into Lo s apartment but in CH15 before the inheritance landed all her stuff was moved into Loren s apartment.Nitpick 4Never once is the name Lauren mentioned It s apparently Loren hide spoiler This story is very cheesy and sweet and yes it has its faults but I really enjoyed reading it for what it was, a sweet and fluffy feel good story between two best friends This gets an overall 3,6 rating At the risk of repeating myself in a loop, I m going to say it again An audiobook can make or break a book If it helps to make a story better, happy days, but it s sad when it ruins it I m afraid there s no polite way to put it here Marriage of unconvenience is

her luck is about to change when she inherits a big amount of money from her granny The only problem is that the inheritance comes with the stipulation that she has to get married before she can collect it Cara Simms, her best friend from childhood needs money to pay for grad school, so Lo has a brilliant idea they should get fake married The problem is that the fake marriage is starting to feel like the real thing but Lo cannot be falling for her straight best friend, can she Chelsea M Cameron is a prolific writer, she mainly writes mainstream romance but she has a few f f novels I ve seen good comments about this novel so I decided to give it a go Marriage of unconvenience is an enjoyable lesbian new adult romance story that hits the trope of best friends to lovers and toaster oven all in one Both characters are lovable and even though I wouldn t say their chemistry is off the charts, their story is believable and fun I think that an early twenties audience would really enjoy this book.Unfortunately for me, I decided to listen to the audiobook instead of reading the novel This was a close did not finish for me The only thing that kept me going was that the story is sweet, cute and short ish Sadly, I don t have many positive comments to make about Ms Cooper s narration I m surprised that it was deemed acceptable by the audiobook producer as the recording sounds amateurish For example, there are technical issues in which you can distinctively hear sound changes that indicate those parts that were recorded at a later time Regrettably, that s not the only recording issue but I ll spare you the details of the rest.Ms Cooper s performance was also sub par with breathing pauses cutting the middle of a sentence, emotions that contradict what the written text says, and forced performance of feelings On the positive side, the voices of the main characters were distinctive enough to make it bearable to listen until the end I m sorry but I cannot recommend the audiobook but I think you d find the novel enjoyable to read instead Overall, 4 stars for the story, 2 stars for the narration 3 stars.Duration 6 hrs and 20 mins I ve no idea why I can t resist a fake relationship novel And I love the friends to lover story line so this one is a gem to me.Why just 3 star then Ah well, I have no complain regarding the plot It is actually sweet and funny and really good But the way it s written was very disappointing It seems like the writer is in a hurry to published it and somehow missed a lot of errors here and there Andimportantly, for a 1st person POV, the show don t tell aspect went a little too overboa I ve no idea why I can t resist a fake relationship novel And I love the friends to lover story line so this one is a gem to me.Why

how the story progresses I hate it when a good book is ruined by bad editing This book is one of those unfortunate ones, where I love the story, but can t focus on it because I m too pissed at how badly it s been told.For fake relationship lovers, they will love the story as much as I did so, don t mind the words I love both Cara and Lo Their love for each other and the chemistry are some of the best things about this book and that s the most important thing for a good fake relationship novel.Is cautiously recommended a thing 3.5 starsThis was sooooooo cute This is my second Chelsea M Cameron book and although I did like Style , this was just as fluffy and adorable I was struggling a bit with the first half of the book as nothing apart from the wedding was really happening plot

pretty afraid I wasn t going to connect to Cara and Lo at all I definitely wish the author went deeper into their feelings or the progression of them so it didn t seem so all of a sudden.The second half though I WAS LIVING It was so sweet and I m so glad Lo s family was so nice and their friends were so supportive It made the story feel evenwarm than it already was To Lo s and Cara s happily ever after PS I don t know who the model on the cover of this book is butpre reading thoughts an f f fake marriage you say 3.5this was a super cute f f story about two best friends getting fake
