His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayres • Review/Release Blitz

About the Book:

Senna Callas’s one-night stand with her alpha asshole boss, Marco Medina, was supposed to mark the end of her internship and their ridiculous attraction. After being unreachable and ignoring Senna for a year, Marco sweeps back into the country and summons her to his office, revealing he knows her secret…the secret created during their explosive night together.
Marco is determined to be there for the son he’s just discovered he has, but when it comes to being with Senna, his choices aren’t his own. His meddling family expects him, the firstborn son, to follow through with the arranged marriage set up when he was a child. And Senna has no plans on being his mistress and still resents how her attempts to contact Marco were ignored. The only thing going right between them is the attraction that burns no matter the complicated situation they’re in.
Marco would do anything to protect his family, anything except decide between the legacy he was born into and the young family he’s just found…

Review by: Tatia 

I had mixed feelings about this story for a good portion of it. Girl falls for boss. Girl ends up pregnant. Tries to contact baby daddy and can't get ahold of him. Anger ensues. That's kind of how this story went. Not the whole thing.
Senna didn't intend to be pregnant, alone, and struggling to pay the bills. Thankfully, she has a best friend that helps her out as much as possible. In walks said boss, Marco. After not hearing from or seeing him since before she had her son, he walks in as if nothing is different.
Marco did his investigating. He thinks he knows the whole story but is far from it.
If it hadn't been for the last quarter of this book, my rating would have been different. Marco turned my opinion of him around and redeemed himself and the story for me. Senna was vulnerable and a bit naive to me, but I saw where she was coming from. All in all, a story that I ended up enjoying more than I expected.

4 Stars 

Review by: Flavia 

I  enjoyed this book over all, but some parts just didn't work for me.

Sienna worked as an intern at Marco's company. And from the beginning there was a chemistry between them. On her last day there they had a one night stand and from that one night stand she became pregnant.

Marco was attracted to Sienna since he met her and when they started spending more time together he knew that he had to have her. And he did. But immediately after he left the country because his father got sick.

Almost a year later and Marco has found out that Sienna had a baby and she didn't even tell him him. But what he didn't know is that Sienna tried to get in contact with him and he was just gone.

The storyline had so much potential. But I just didn't like Marco. First of all he was sort of engaged to someone else. (Okay it was an arranged marriage) And he still slept with Sienna. And eventually when he got her and his son, he still wanted to sleep with her and have all the convenience of having her but he was to be married in three weeks.

Sienna annoyed me as she didn't even fight for herself or her son. It felt like Marco just took over and she just went with everything he said.
I just wanted her to stand up for herself and not just go with whatever he decided.

Definitely would like to see what the next book would be like
