Blog Tour: His Family of Convenience by Amy Ayers

Meet the Author:

Amy Ayers remembers writing her first fiction as an introspective tween in rainy Portland, Oregon. She took a break from writing to move with her family to the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Women’s Studies which lends itself to writing strong, opinionated heroines. She has worked as an Editor, a Job-Skills Trainer, and as an Executive Assistant. She even spent a college semester writing articles for the Tombstone Epitaph in the town ‘too tough to die’. She currently divides her time between her writing, her family (including one husband, four boys and two dogs), and her daily commute to work. A life-long lover of literature, she began writing her own contemporary romance in earnest in 2014 and is thrilled to be published with Entangled. She hopes to win the lottery someday so that she can devote all of her time to writing; until then, she writes when she can.

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…

His Family of Convenience was a quick read for me. 

Marco has known all his life what his obligations to family are - what his duty is; such duty that leaves his options slim.  So when he discovers that he's got a child - a child he knew nothing about- he's all in -- on teh fatherhood front at least.  But claiming his role as Father does not mean he's not duty bound to his family and therefore the situation between himself and the child's mother is not cut and dry. 

Senna thought Marco knew about their son but didn't care. She thought he was a jerk who had no desire to be apart of her or their son's life. When he shows up after so long, claiming to have never known - she knows there's more going on than a disinterested man, but she could have no idea what she would discover about Marco and his plans for the future. 

The chemistry between Marco and Senna was great, there was such a connection between them, even when they were upset with each other. But Marco was so deep in his father's wishes, in the role he thought he had to play that he kept pushing aside his own desires - his own wants, and in doing so created more problems for himself and Senna.  

I loved that Senna did her best to try to do right by her son and Marco - even if it meant her own heartbreak.  I loved that she stood firm in her demand that she deserved everything from Marco - or nothing - she wasn't going to accept only part of him.  

There were so many complications in Marco's life - twists that I didn't expect, theories that I had come to at the start of the book, that I was clearly wrong on.  I loved the unpredictability of this story - it was not what I had expected but rather so much better.  The emotions drawn out in this story added an extra level of intrigue, keeping me wondering how things were going to turn out for both Senna and Marco and of course their son. 

This was my first book by Amy Ayers, and I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more in the future.
