“Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?” she asks, hope in her eyes . . .

How did I get here? My assistant, bent on one knee, holding my hand, her expectant face waiting for an answer.

Just . . . how?

How did I go from being insulted by Charlee Cox to hiring her to be my assistant? How is it that she’s chaos in color – making me crazy and my life better at the same time?

I never thought I would be staring down at her bright blue eyes begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.

Yes, I suggested. Like the idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?

Confused? Don’t worry, so am I.

But try to follow along, because this is how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.

My thoughts:

Boss Man Bridegroom was absolutely adorable. It had the humor and romance I have come to expect from Meghan Quinn. Rath was uptight, but also super sweet. Charlie was extra in the best way. I loved every minute of them falling in love. If you love fake relationships that turn real or office romances, this book is for you. If you’re unfamiliar with Meghan Quinn’s writing, but love a good romantic comedy, you could start with this book. Or you could do yourself a favor and start with Diary of a Bad Boy and then read The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister before reading this one. Each book is a ton of fun and they feature three male best friends finding love.

Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday. But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble.

Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge.

Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom.

And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.

My thoughts:

I liked Riven Knight even more than Gypsy King. It started out much quicker for me and I immediately bonded with the characters. Genevieve and Isaiah’s story was kind of a slow burn filled with all sorts of sexual tension. I loved how they navigated their new situation. I liked the mystery aspect of things. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was probably one of the biggest twists because I didn’t think it needed to go there…but that’s my personal opinion. Overall, a great addition to this new series.

  1. I’ve never read anything by Quinn. I am so picky about humor i my romance books and I’ve read a few excerpts from her books that make me think her style probably isn’t for me. I’m excited to start the Tin Gypsies series. I love a story where you just click with the characters from the very start. It’s like I’m instantly invested in them.

    1. Really? I love Meghan Quinn. She’s kind of on the same end as Max Monroe in the humor department. But if you don’t think her humor would be your style, I highly recommend the Blue Line duet, starting with The Upside of Falling. I bet you would like her contemporary romance. It’s similar in feeling to some of the other authors I see you have read.

      1. It’s interesting you mention The Upside of Falling because I’m pretty sure that one is already on my TBR – along with The Left Side of Perfect. Maybe those will be a better fit for me than her rom-com’s. Thanks for steering me in the right direction, Deanna! 🙂

        1. You’re welcome. I bet they will be better. So you read those two, then there is a second duet that goes with them — but don’t look it up until you read the first duet to avoid spoilers. You would probably also like her Dear Life.

    1. Yes! I didn’t realize there were ties from that series to this one, but there are. I only thought it was with the other series.

    1. Thank you! It was really cute — for next time you have KU. The whole bridegroom thing has its reason and it is kind of cute.
