    Rated 3.5 Stars

    His Convenient Husband was an ok read for me. The characters were likeable for the most part except for Isaiah, I really didn't like him at all. He was just an a-hole and while I got why he was the way he was to an extent he just didn't work for me and ultimately took away from my overall enjoyment of the story.

    Awesome

    Before I started this one I read several critical reviews on it so I must admit I started with some apprehension. After reading the story I have to say I'm glad I don't always listen to the naysayers. I absolutely loved this book. I thought this was a wonderful M/M romance that not only gave me a wonderfully entertaining story but also reminded me how important it is to live life just as you are. Isaiah Blackwell is a man who have known great love in his life. The pain of losing that love has been overwhelming but he's moved on with life for the sake of his son. One thing is for sure, he'll never risk loving like that again. Then Victor Aleksandrov enters his life and nothing will ever be the same. They are complete opposites. Isaiah is quiet, reserved, and very private. Victor is loud, flamboyant, and outspoken. When a one night stand turns into a marriage of convenience these two have to learn to live in each other's worlds. I would definitely recommend this one!

    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. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com (10/9/17)***

    Stunning book - loved it.

    This book was stunning. It had everything I look for in a romance story. The writing was smooth and natural. I was captivated from the first page till the last. I couldn’t put the book down. The plot was great and the characters were rich with development. Isaiah is an NHL player, widower, and father of a fourteen-year-old queer son, Evan. After the death of his husband, Steven, he is afraid to fall in love again. He is out but quiet about it. When he meets ballet dancer, Victor, he is immediately smitten. The feeling is mutual and they have a hot night together. Victor is out, proud and loud. He doesn’t shy away from speaking about gay rights in his home country. Nevertheless, his petition for asylum is denied. Isaiah offers to marry him so he can stay in the US. The author has done a wonderful job capturing the characters of Isaiah and Victor. They came alive on the pages and I was thoroughly invested in their lives. Although being polar opposites, I could feel the connection. The chemistry was palpable. I loved their interactions. Hot, sexy and sweet. Evan is a great addition to the story and makes it that bit extra special. Totally acting his age, he is a mixture of innocent self-confidence and teenage wisdom. He voices what the adults think. It is a clever way to get the message across that you have to be who you are, stand up for your beliefs and don’t let fear stand in the way of happiness. I loved that recent developments in the world were woven masterfully into the story. It gave the story “body” without it being a soapbox novel. It made me aware that there are still many regions in the world where LGBTQ rights are nonexistent and that it is important to speak for them. I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

    3.5 stars for His Convenient Husband

    There was quite a bit of buzz about this book on my social media timelines, so I wanted to see what it was all about. This was my first time reading this author. Isaiah is quite content living a quiet life with his teenage son. The loss of his spouse has put him off all relationships as he just can't go through that sort of pain again. But when he arranges a meeting between his son and one of his idols by the name of Victor, Isaiah's world goes into turmoil. He's attracted to Victor in a big-time way, only his grief over losing his husband keeps him from letting go. After a one-night stand, Isiaiah moves on. Victor is a gender fluid ballet dancer and artist. He's attracted to Isiaih, but accepts that he's not going to have more than one night. But when Victor's application for asylum is refused, Isaiah can't let Victor go back to Chechnya and possible death for his sexual orientation. They do the only thing they can -- fly to Vegas and get married. Even after all this, Isiaiah is sticking to his rule that they can't have a relationship. It's all for show. But there's a big bucketload of chemistry between them, and it's hard to always follow Isaiah's rule. Isiaih may find out too late just what his no-relationship rule is going to cost him. I loved Victor in this, especially his interactions with Isaiah's son Evan. Victor's honesty and believe in himself and his causes really made this book for me. I did find the pacing to be slower than I like with this book, and there were quite a few times I wanted to smack Isaiah upside the head. Overall, I liked this diverse story and how it highlighted some of the difficulties of being out and proud. An ARC was provided for review.
