|Reviews for A Marriage of Inconvenience|
| Boo chapter 22 . 1/13
It is great to read stories about people who have realistic, selfish wishes, who are egoistic. I really loved your story, it is always nice to read a story, the author of which is not afraid to twist the plot in a realistic way.

I don't know what you're talking about! I know that it's rather late, but better late than never, right? This was a great story with a bittersweet ending. I love stories with bittersweet endings. The only question I have is: what about Kate and U.S. Immigration? But, all in all, it is a pretty fuckin great story.

Hey there! I'm Rosie from A Drop of Romeo and I'm happy to say that your story has been added to our archive, under the category of 'Miscellaneous'! Here's your review:
Rosie Thinks: This story, as the title suggests, starts off with 'The Marriage Cliche' - where both parties aren't in love but get married out of convenience. I've seen this cliche so many times that I was a bit hesitant to start this, but this story is definitely a twist on the norm.
Owen and Kate are just friends, but when Kate's in jeopardy of being deported and Owen's being labelled a playboy (bad for business), they decide to marry. It isn't done spur-of-the-moment, completely unrealistically either - instead, the marriage happens for reasons and in a way that it is realistic. The fact that they are friends before they marry puts an interesting twist on the whole story and something that I didn't expect at all.
I wouldn't really say that this story has one main character - I felt like it had four, but they're all pretty well developed and not stereotypical. This story wasn't overly emotional or anything dramatic like that, but it makes for a really lovely read that flowed yet was still complex. Friendship is also a focus in this story and the two romances that developed were just downright beautiful.

Dear Random Acts of Authorship,
I read this story a while back but didn't review it. I just wanted to thank you for sharing a good story and to say 'I remember you!'. I was lucky enough to have read it after it was completed, and I'm glad that you felt like you learned a lot about writing in the process. :) I hope that you continue to keep writing, because I'll keep reading!

"I just feel like I'm stuck in a really bad sitcom. And it's probably a rerun, too."
I absolutely LOVE this line!

hi, I know I'm nitpicking but I'm pretty sure you can't go out of Cambridge with a physics degree. Their course is natural sciences so you leave with a MSci or a bachelor.
The only reason I know is that it annoys tons of students every year who want to do a pure science course and not just specialise a year or two in.
Nice start though, good work on your characters, very likable but very human :)

I really enjoyed this! It was well paced and i fell in love with both brothers!

That was such a sweet ending. I'm curious if Kate went back to England, but it was still really good. They all got their happy endings and it was written well :)

I really liked the amount of details you put into the characters and how real their life seems to be. The idea of your story seems really good and I can't wait to read more of it :D
