Fiction, Romance, Adult & contemporary romance

Marriages of convenience can be so . . . inconvenient. New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren's (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) brand new romance.

'One of the most romantic meet-cutes I have ever read' Frolic

Marriages of convenience can be so . . . inconvenient. From subway . . .

Monday night. Wednesday morning. Friday lunchtime. Holland Bakker plans her journeys to work around the times handsome Irish musician, Calvin McLoughlin, plays his guitar in the 50th Street subway station. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, Holland is destined to admire him from a distance. Then a near-tragedy causes her busker to come to her rescue, only to disappear when the police start asking questions.

To Broadway . . .

Keen to repay Calvin, Holland gets him an audition with her uncle, Broadway's hottest musical director. When he aces the tryout, Calvin's luck seems to have turned - until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he doesn't have a visa.

To happy ever after?

Impulsively, Holland offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York. Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway, while their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers. Yet surrounded by theatre and actors, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?
