The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck by Kathleen Y’Barbo

Book Description
Unlikely romance is sometimes just an inconvenient marriage away
Charlotte Beck may be entering adulthood, but she can’t seem to keep to her stubborn, independent spirit from bucking social protocol. Fed up with her behavior, Charlotte’s father Daniel pressures her to settle into a nice marriage despite knowing she is set on going to college. Then Daniel sees Charlotte with the handsome but annoying English astronomer Alex Hambly, and everything changes.
Though Alex and Charlotte can barely stand one another, Daniel offers them a deal they can’t refuse: if they agree to marry, he will save Alex’s family from financial ruin and grant Charlotte the freedom to go to college. Reluctantly the couple agrees, but in private they plot to annul the marriage as soon as possible.
But when Alex’s feelings change and he refuses to dissolve their contract, will Charlotte find a way out of her vows? Or will she discover that maybe this marriage isn’t so inconvenient after all?

My Thoughts
This book is third in a series but was quite easy to read on it's own. I really enjoyed this book, It was well written and constantly had me laughing out loud. Alex and Charlotte were so much fun, I loved all their sparring, and how even as they were at odds with each other deep down they were slowly falling in love. I thought it was cool how Charlotte's father saw how perfect they were for each other long before either of them. This type of story, marrying than falling in love, is one of my favorites so I was quite thrilled to find another great story to add to my collection!
