    4.5****starsAfter being left standing at the altar, Tamara needs someone to share the new home she can’t afford. Kawbena Opoku, a gorgeous Ghanaian scientist in search of a green card, will help and fulfill Tamara’s needs.Kawbena aka Ben what a great guy, he is sexy, sweet and nice and I love him. Tamara, I like her but I have to admit sometimes she annoys me like nobody in a book can, but I get her frustration. When you and your life feels crappy it tends to bring out the worst in someone.Throughout the book they came so close to being intimate so many times, even I got frustrated along with Kawbena. I do have to say I'm split in the middle with this book, although I liked it it didn't really pick up for me until maybe chapter 10, where a lot more things started to happen. Don’t worry, there are a lot more chapters after that so don’t be disappointed. I know many Caribbean readers can relate to this story so for me it's surely a plus. I liked the book and all the characters that also were associated in the story. For readers that like their story detail, this delivered it was detailed and in depth. I have to say this, I walked away with a very important quote from the book that I have never heard and will use in my everyday life. It is the quote from Kawbena's grandfather “Never boost of your accomplishments, because if they matter they will speak for themselves" This is a wonderful quote.******************

    I absolutely loved this book! There were many dimensions I found entertaining--cultural differences, history, relationship development to name a few. This book was realistic because I am familiar with couples who married for reasons other than love and came to love and respect each other deeply. Also I liked that the heroine was not the typical overly beautiful female with no known flaws. Tamara and Kwabena worked through their problems and created a beautiful family together. By the way, they most definitely did get together in the end.

    I borrowed A Marriage of Convenience from the Prime Lending Library with my Prime membership benefits.Tamara is not only stood-up at the alter by her groom, he cleaned out all her bank accounts and maxed out her credit cards after even tricking her into buy her engagement ring. Then he disappeared leaving her deeply in debt, depressed and to top that off she lost her job.Her friend, Jordan suggests A Marriage of Convenience to Kawbena Benjamin Opoku, an African in need of a green card so he could stay in the United States to continue his research. Slowly Tamara and Ben get to know one another, become friends and fall for each other. This complicates their arrangement as family and friends become aware of the marriage.This is a passionate love story full of authentic cultural background based in and around Washington, DC. The couple faces challenges due to parental approval, cultural differences, interference of ex-girlfriends and learning to trust each other to find their happy ending. A Marriage of Convenience was a thing of the past by the happy every after ending to the story.

    4.5 stars, Draws You In, Multicultural HEA RomanceI found this book difficult to put down, as it subtly pulled me in. There were a few editing errors but they did not distract from the storyline, as well as a lot of characters to follow in the early stages. A large part of the plot involved Tamera's interactions and extended family relationships as well as the growing romance and cultural differences. The emotions that complicate relationships are very realistically portrayed, and, while you sometimes want to shake some sense into some of the characters, you can identify with some of the mistakes they make and the sweetness of the resolution.

    I liked the characters. Tammy is smart, funny and real. She has insecurities like most of us do. Ben's character wasn't quite as likeable. It bothered me that even though the marriage started out as a business proposition, that he showed no respect for her in the beginning. The parties, and not only having sex with other women, but having it in her home, yeah, not right. Then if he loved her so much, why try to have sex with a woman that he knew was the cause of his marital problems? I loved that Tammy had a strong supportive mom, and family. Even better, a best friend who was there for her.

    I love it.This is a great romance story. I love how it was long enough to follow them all through their tough times and good times. I love reading BBW books, even though we try, we can not all be a size 2. Having extra weight does no make us ugly, it just makes us more human. I would recommend it to anyone. This was an excellent story.

    NiceA nice romance with engaging characters and an interesting story. There some concepts that were new, and the protagonists being African and African-American is a change from the usual.

    Great storyYou may think is going to be the usual romance after and initial arrangement marriage but not... this story has other turns and situations that keep you in suspense.... I highly recommend this book for a weekend or vacation time because it is difficult to put aside!!!

    Loved it! All I can say is, I can normally predict what is going to happen in a romance. That did not happen with this one and that is why it gets 5 stars from me. Also it presented reality and not a complete fairytale. Thank you.

    The author did a good job of showing that not trusting others was the root of all the heroine's troubles. It was well-written and I was turning pages quickly.

    A Marriage of Convenience was too sweet for my taste, as well as predictable. I like a hint of fire and suspense. This book has maybe one real sex scene and it left A LOT to be desired. Besides that, the story was slightly both annoying and absurd. Our girl was left at the altar with the debt of a wedding, a brand new house and mounting credit card debt from her con-artist former fiance. Yea, that sucks... sucks even worse when you lose your job and can't pay everything off.Here's where it gets frustrating: She is sitting on a 6,000 square foot mansion in a beautiful gated community!!! Yea sure she finds herself an African "prince" and it all works out, but still! She should have sold it, paid off her debt and pulled herself by her bootstraps! Go get 'em girl!If I had to describe in one word... Cute That is all.

    I chose this rating because although we'll written Too MuchExplicent sexI disliked all the explicit sex Why do authors who have the reader enthralled have to go and ruin it by inserting explicit sexual chapters? It was an excellent book but the explicit sex had me flipping pages to get back to the real story.

    AMAZING!I got this book this morning and normally I read in order as I buy but I love books like this and I could not put it down. It was a new twist in green cards but it also showed honesty and trust are very important in any relationship. And if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything.

    A marriage of convenience I enjoyed this book. The story is about two people marrying for a green card and falling in love. The writer did a good job of showing the heroine overcoming her insecurities and the hero changing his ways.
