ARC review : Marriage of Inconvenience by M.J. O'Shea
Lights, Camera, Lies.
Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy. But Jericho has a secret, and when that secret is revealed in the most spectacularly disastrous way, it’s up to Kerry to spin it.
The team decides the best course of action is to make the public fall in love—with Jericho’s secret committed relationship. The one that doesn’t exist. Yet.
The team wants someone they can trust. Someone in the inner circle. That someone is Kerry. But what will happen when Kerry realizes that for him, the romance is no longer pretend? Can Jericho love him back, or is he just playing a role?
Marriage of Inconvenience by M.J. O'Shea
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Hollywood. It's life and people around it.
I'm not a fan.
But it's always interesting reading and watching the drama about Hollywood.
I felt sorry for Kerry for having that kind of life, to protect Jericho's reputation for being outed as gay.
Not that it was forbidden, but people who knows him as a ladies man of Hollywood, not so much fun.
The story must have been made. And Kerry was in the middle and he can't say no.
Good thing is he's also gay and had a crush on Jericho for a while. But he didn't know 'the real' Jericho.
But whatever he felt for Jericho after the 'engagement' he must doing it, for the sake of his job.
And Jericho? Well, actually he's being a douche and I didn't like him, for treating Kerry that way.
I also can't feel any strong chemistry between the two MCs, too bad.
The story has a potential to be so much fun. I don't know, maybe it's just me.
Overall, it was just an okay read for me, not much to tell. I still don't believe that Jericho and Kerry will be last. The ending was kinda in a gray area.
And I wonder where's 'married' came from, there's only 'engagement' and no ' marriage '.
Probably the 'plan' :)
