What's with that shit? Ever heard of catching? Fucking coward. Jan 13, Deb rated it did not like it Shelves: The book starts off alright but then gets so aggravating!
The arrogance of this man was astounding. He was a disgusting prick who really just seemed like he wanted a trophy wife instead of a wife of equal standing. He called it a "partnership" while listing off expectations like an employer. I was livid even if the main character was not. I just could not believe that such an independently written character like Megan can be okay with all the misogynistic expectations of this guy!
It's one thing The book starts off alright but then gets so aggravating! It's one thing if she chose and wanted to be a stay at home mom, but a totally different thing if that's what he wanted out of their "marriage".
It was like he listed qualities he wanted in a nanny. At the beginning of their relationship, it seemed like he was manipulating her with compliments and small touches and showing her how wealthy he was like some sort of bribe. Throughout most of the book, he rarely if ever talked about the kind of person she was and only listed qualities that he found would be perfect as his wife.
A lot of the times, he wanted her because he was only physically attracted to her. And because she didn't initially agree with the marriage, this arrogant bastard actually called her an "unfinished project"!!
Just fucking At some point, when she confronted him about it, he somehow manipulated her into thinking that she was wrong and a coward for not giving them a chance.
Buddy, all the doubts that she listed about you were spot on! The mofo kept treating their supposed marriage like a business deal waiting to be settled and signed. I was so disgusted by him and actually, by her too because she called him out on his mindset, but still allowed their relationship to continue. This is probably one of the worst books I've ever read.
I think I raged through most of it, and only finished it because of sheer will. Dec 02, Melissa rated it liked it. Although completely unrealistic and totally predictable,this was a fun and light read.
Perfect to entertain on a lazy Sunday: And there were a few really good one liners that had me laughing out loud. Nov 07, Suzie Quint rated it really liked it Shelves: There are some tropes that are fun but hard to write without having them seem contrived.
The accidental marriage is one of them, but Ms Kelly pulls it off nicely. Neither of them is looking for love. He wants a marriage that based on liking, shared goals and values without the mess of strong emotions.
She's given up on relationships but wants children and has plans to get artificially inseminated. When they meet in Vegas and have a gloriously fun night, he decides she's everything he's looking f There are some tropes that are fun but hard to write without having them seem contrived. When they meet in Vegas and have a gloriously fun night, he decides she's everything he's looking for and talks her into getting married, not realizing that she's drunk enough that she'll remembers little the next morning.
Convincing the heroine to give them a chance could have been a disaster in the hands of an impatient author, but Ms. Kelly gets there in a nicely paced, methodical, and logical fashion, creating realistic reasons for her to agree. Not once did I roll my eyes. A common event when I'm asked to stretch credibility too far. Since I bought into the set up, I was able to relax and enjoy the way the story played out.
I do like when the hero is confident enough to put himself out there and go after the woman he wants, and Ms. Kelly writes such men well so this is another winner. My favorite part?
How, in the beginning, she can't get his name right. View all 6 comments. May 15, Caz rated it liked it Shelves: From what Megan told him the previous night, it seems she wants the same things from a relationship that he does: Shared goals and compatible priorities.
Reasonable and Mr. Unflappable, even when Megan tries everything she can think of to rile him or get him to give up — which seemed a bit mean considering she had actually agreed to give him and their marriage a chance to work out. Waking Up Married was enjoyable - but ultimately forgettable - fluff.
May 02, Andrea rated it it was amazing Shelves: My Review: I don't give out 5 hearts very easily but because it caught me off guard completely, I'm giving it the full 5 hearts it deserves. I got it for free from site so I wasn't really expecting it to be this fun, quirky, and seductive.
I was dreading it was going to be a bit of a heavy read and somewhat complicated but it turned out to be a predictable in a good way and light read, which made it way better than what I was expecting it to be. It was very cheesy and corny, which I usually My Review: It was very cheesy and corny, which I usually don't like, but surprisingly I loved reading it on this book.
It had that perfect cheesiness and corniness to it. I went through waves of emotions from grinning like a fool to myself, squealing because of excitement, having that "uh-oh-this-is-going-to-be-a-disaster" feeling, laughing so hard forgetting there were people around me, and crying like a baby. Everything I'm looking for in a guy, I found in Conner. It's about respect, caring and commitment. It's about treating a marriage like a partnership instead of some romantic fantasy.
It's about two people liking each other. Now, knock it off. You don't remember, but if there's one thing we do well About anything. She has her reasons and she's used to being alone and independent.
I liked another character that most probably won't even notice as much, Jeff. Oh, Jeff was funny! If I'm going to be married to someone someday, I'd love for him to have a friend like Jeff. There are times when a girl needs to be reminded that it's okay to dream and have fantasies, no matter how far-fetched they are. This is probably the mother of all cheesy and corny lines ever, but whatever. Megan, I love you. And I'm asking you to let me give you a lifetime of what you've shown me matters most.
Laughter, love, late-night conversations. I'm asking you to be my wife in the most conventional, traditional and time-tested meaning of the word, for as long as we both shall live.
If you need a light, fun, quirky, and romantic read, I recommend you this book. Dec 28, Scott-robert Shenkman rated it really liked it. OK, so I read this comment in one of the reviews saying this was the perfect read for the ladies. Some of us guys like a nice romance once in a while.
Or more than once in a while. Especially us married ones — we had to have done something right to get that ring on her finger. I wanted light and fluffy.
I expected light and fluffy. And I got light and fluffy. Until the last quarter of the book. But a good train wreck. And then that one should just be left in the room.
Speaking of the cover: Megan looks like a younger Renee Zellweger, which is totally how I see her. Dec 30, I was so pleasantly surprised by this book. I honestly wasn't expecting much. And I know that's horrible to say, but it's Harlequin, and my tastes tend to be a little off from their usual style. However , I think the fact that this was their new KISS line had a lot to do with my overall reaction to the story, the characters and the flow.
First, let's talk story. This isn't a new plot. However, it's one of my favorites when done right and when fresh.
I think Ms. Kelly managed both with this book, a I was so pleasantly surprised by this book.
Kelly managed both with this book, and I loved the small details that made this a unique take on an old storyline. Now, characters. I love, love, love, love, loved Connor. Everything about him except his idiocy.
He was sweet and loyal and flirtatious and sexy and strong and funny and and and And then there's Megan. She was basically everything I look for in a heroine, and from what I know of the KISS line, that's something that is a requirement, and I, for one, couldn't be happier.
I can't stand weak, whiny heroines. I like mine with back bones and sass and smarts, and Megan had it all. The banter was fabulous, the flow was great, the arc wasn't rushed or trite or cliched I laughed and I smiled and I got that pit in my stomach when everything sort of fell apart.
That's the mark of a good book for me. I mean, obviously this is a CR so you know there's an HEA, but how they were going to get there was unclear, and that made all the difference for me in going through the motions with these characters.
If you're looking for a light-hearted, fun read with engaging and fresh characters, this is an excellent way to spend a few hours.
The best part? Word on the street is this sucker is free on site.

If it ain't broke Not sure it was the book itself, of Harlequin's one-part-a-day-on-Facebook release of this that made me like it so much. I just couldn't wait for the next installment! Still I enjoyed it. I like that they were already married, which is definitely a twist on traditional romance. And yet, the book still ended with a proposal.
I liked the flashback aspects. And I love th Though all romances seem to fall into the realm of predictability, that doesn't make them any less enjoyable. Really, this is more a 3. Fun, sexy, sweet - one that I'll pick up again when in the mood.
Feb 10, Pamela AllHoney rated it liked it Shelves: Waking Up Married is a story about a couple who wakes up married in Las Vegas. Megan Scott is in Las Vegas for her cousin's wedding and meets a guy and gets drunk and wakes up married. Connor Reed is all for staying married. He wants a family but no romantic entanglements.
He doesn't believe in love. Megan has major trust issues and, though she wants a baby, she doesn't want the headache of a husband. It really was a cute and good story. I had to give it three stars though because I felt it drag Waking Up Married is a story about a couple who wakes up married in Las Vegas. I had to give it three stars though because I felt it dragged a tad.
Still, I would recommend it to contemporary romance lovers. Dec 23, Mary rated it did not like it Shelves: My favorite trope in fanfiction is where people have to act super married because of reasons. Like, full on super duper we could fool everyone married. That's what I thought I was getting. I got a really creepy guy who wanted to force the woman he woke up married to to keep their relationship going even though she was against it.

Dec 11, Danielle rated it did not like it Shelves: Waking Up Married Author: Mira Lynn Kelly Genre: December 1, Source: You probably remember the red header, the schmaltzy covers, and the shamefully ludicrous plots. Harlequin has been desperately trying to put this image behind them by introducing something for every roman Title: For a fascinating look into the industry, go on their website sometime and look at the incredibly specific requirements to be published under the Harlequin name.
Waking Up Married earns every single star by embodying that ideal Megan approaches Connor in a bar with a request. Pretend to leave with her to get her friends off her case. Connor agrees, but for added realism, asks her to join him for a drink first.
From there, they begin a vodka soaked evening of flirting, gambling, waffles, and eventually a smoldering kiss. She handles the situation rationally and far more calmly than I could manage. She wants to call a lawyer, but Connor still thinks they can make this work. And then the story utterly falls apart. Despite being madly, obviously in love with each other, Connor and Megan both deny the possibility and approach their quickie marriage as a business merger.
There was a base inequity to the relationship that the author tried to explain, but never rang true. At this point he reveals himself to be an emotionally abusive sociopath, withholding all affection while Megan follows him around like a lovesick puppy. His ex conveniently turns up to narrate this and Megan, still desperately in love, flees. Even after she moves across the country, Connor keeps calling and turning up to try and convince her to come back.
Please pause and consider this. First he recognizes the fact that his father strung his mother along. He acknowledges that she tried to leave multiple times. He knows that her helplessness in the situation led to her death. He reads her email, because at this point, why not. They get back together and their HEA is that they decide to wait to have children. And then she still gets sucked back in. I want to take Megan to a nice counselor to work on her self esteem and maybe get her a puppy.
Connor, I just want gone. Nov 08, Ridley rated it really liked it Shelves: Cute as fuck. Also angsty. Loved all of it, but would have preferred it if the conflict - "this needs to be a marriage without dangerous emotions like love" - had been wrapped in different language.
All the focus on the specific word "love" sucked all the subtlety out of it. View all 4 comments. Jun 17, Zakirrah BookBlogger rated it liked it Shelves: I knew what would happen in this book well main bits anyways the title gives it away! It all start off when Megan wakes up in a strange bed with a man and finds out that she married him.
Connor remembers what happened the night before as for Megan everything is a little fuzzy and she doesn't remember why she would marry someone she had just met. She w 3 cute,fun filled stars! She wants a divorce whilst Connor wants to make the marriage work. I needed a quick book to read and this is what i picked out.
There were parts that annoyed me like how distrustful Megan was,I understood her past made her how she is but C'mon now! This morning. Her stomach pitched hard. As though this guy was losing his patience. You look pissed hide spoiler ] Both Megan and Connor are certifiably crazy - incredibly frustrating but at the same time charming.
And Connor is too good to be true. He knew exactly what to say. And even when he didn't, his imperfections and flaws were also attractive. Last night, they'd both been on the same page - a marriage built on mutual needs and attraction, but definitely no L word. Megan can't remember their first kiss, but Conner will try every trick in the book to remind her of their scorching chemistry.
