So hot, so wonderful; I loved it!
His Convenient Husband is the first book I’ve read by Robin Covington and what an introduction to her writing! This book knocked my socks off and I can’t wait to read more stories in the Love and Sports series.I knew before I finished the first chapter that I was going to love this story and that opinion didn’t change as I continued to devour this book. I couldn’t read the words on the page fast enough and yet I knew I would be sad when it ended.
Isaiah lost the love of his life and now he’s afraid to love again and risk his heart. He’s happy with the life he and his son, Evan, have going for them even if he’s lonely at times. Victor is taken with Isaiah and his son. He and Evan have a lot of things in common, including their love of Isaiah. Now if he can only get Isaiah to trust his heart again.
The chemistry between the characters was palpable, the heat and love (that one of them wouldn’t admit to) projected like a real and living thing. But, oh, did I want to knock some heads together a couple of times! It’s a romance and has an HEA so everything works out in the end but not before I shed more than a few tears for the heartbreak these two suffered. Then the HEA and the epilogue brought on the happy tears. All in all, this is exactly the kind of story I love to read.
Did I mention that this book is HOT, HOT, HOT?
I have to note one small thing that bothered me a few times. There were more than a couple of places where I had a bit of trouble telling whether it was Isaiah or Victor doing the talking – enough that I found myself re-reading passages. While the story was still so overwhelmingly engrossing, I felt it only fair to deduct a half star from my rating. Still, this was a fantastic 4.5-star book for me.

I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though. I didn’t expect him to text back. I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell. I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
