    Two people, unlikely to ever settle down and have a family, are

    Two people, unlikely to ever settle down and have a family, are suddenly put into a situation that demands them to be in one. 

    Lauren Peters had crossed off having children long ago and had also crossed off the possibility of a serious intimate relationship when the last ex she had ended up ditching her because of an irrevocable problem.

    Mack Hansen, an eligible bachelor with countless arm candy at various social functions, swore he would never settle down, especially seeing how his father was after his mother left. Yet, he still remembers the one stolen kiss he got from his business partner's sister, the one person who he needed to remain totally hands off about. That person is none other than Lauren. 

    So when Callie (Lauren's niece, Mack's god daughter) is supposed to enter the foster system if neither of them could provide a two-parent household in the absence of Lauren's twin brother, who is Mack's business partner; Mack proposes a preposterous idea ... by proposing to Lauren to prevent the child Callie from entering an unknown home.

    After her most serious ex dumped her, Lauren thought she'd never get close to anyone again. One stolen kiss with Mack and she has fantasized about the playboy for years. Entering a marriage for convenience with Mack was the last thing she ever thought she'd be doing. The fake marriage begins to feel too real, too fast. For both of them.

    Plus there's baby Callie... Mack, with all his real estate acumen, fumbles through the fatherhood stuff. Imagine that! Playboy turned overnight father! :-)  I love Shoshanna's characters! She sends them on a trip, and they somehow deliver a happily ever after.

    Hilarious at times and book-throwing crazy at others, this sweet story is definitely a must-read!

    Over half this book was the same dialogue over and over again. Poorly written. Do not waste your time reading this book.

    I enjoyed the book. It wasn't a knock-out, screaming, slam-dunk (enough metaphors there?) book for me, but thoroughly enjoyable. I enjoyed not knowing whether or not Baby Callie's parents were actually alive. It made me keep reading to answer that question.




    Ms. Evers took the lovely marriage of convenience trope and put a slightly different spin on it. I really enjoyed that the two cared so much for their business partner/brother than they were willing to come together for the baby involved in all of it.




    Definitely putting Ms. Evers on my (ever-growing) list of authors to watch. So glad I read this.

     Lauren Peters never thought she would have a family and in an instant she is giving an instant one.

    Mack Hansen never thought he would give up his playboy ways after seeing what had happen to his father when his mother left, but all that changes when Lauren agrees to be his bride in order to raise her niece and his god daughter, Callie when Callie's parent disappear.

    Lauren had fantasized about Mack for years, but never once did she dream she would be married to and raising her niece with him. Although a marriage of convenience she can't stop herself from falling in love with Mack.

    The Tycoon’s Convenient Bride… and Baby will have you falling in love. Shoshanna Evers' pairs two amazing characters together and throw a baby in the mix and you can't help but to fall in love with this book! 

    Lauren and Mack are both passionate about their businesses. Lauren loves her daycare children and dreams of expanding to have more children. Mack, although a ruthless businessman with a knack of finding perfect properties, shows that money doesn't mean as much to him when it comes to the people he cares about. 

    I thought Mack was incredibly sweet when it came to Callie and I absolutely adored the fact that he googled how to take care of a baby and managed to put her diaper on wrong. Callie and Mack together were just adorable, just like a real dad and daughter.

    I did feel bad for Lauren after finding out the reason her ex broke up with her and about her personal problems. I rooted for her to have her family and her happily ever after and she definitely found that.

    This was my first Shoshanna Evers' book, but will not be my last!

    I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars, but alas I cannot, so even though I am shouting a big 10 in my head, I give The Tycoon’s Convenient Bride… and Baby 5 stars!

    Another interesting take on a marriage of convenience. Lauren and Mack have known each other for a few years, but never romantically. When they need to find a husband/wife to keep Lauren's niece, Callie, out of foster care, Mack has the brilliant idea of marrying each other. They will divorce once custody is secured and they can both go about their lives. But nothing is ever as cut and dry and it seems at first.




    They both secretly hold a flame for each other, but neither wants to say it out loud to the other one. Their refusal to talk about the subject of staying together and how they felt and assuming they knew what the other was thinking was a little tiresome at times, but it also led to some really great scenes near the end when it all came out in the open.




    Mack was a great man. Even though he seems to be all about business, he has such a softer side to him, and when Lauren discovers it she falls even harder. There's a lot of drama that centers around Lauren's brother and sister-in-law as they have been lost at sea. The book's ending is full of HEA's and you almost tear up a little bit a few times.

    When her brother and his wife are declared dead, Lauren Peters i

    When her brother and his wife are declared dead, Lauren Peters is determined to take care of their baby, Callie. To do this she needs a husband. Mack Hansen, her brother's partner, has the perfect answer. They will get married and share custody of Callie. After a year, they will dissolve their union. Can a marriage of convenience lead to a HEA? Lauren is very attracted to Mack but he's a serial dater. Lauren won't admit that she desires him. When these two live together, the battle of wills begins. Mack hides his true feelings. No woman will leave him as his mother left his father. I loved both characters, but they have cornered the market on stubborn. Neither will acknowledge what they truly feel. They form a strong bond as they care for Callie. As they grow to love each other, I cheered. The touch of suspense added to the story. The storyline was so well plotted that I wasn't sure what the outcome would be. Shoshanna Evers wrote interesting characters that I cared about. The setting was glamorous and the dialogue was entertaining. The Tycoon's Convenient Bride...and Baby... satisfied my desire for romance.

    This book has me torn. On the one hand, I like the premise--it makes somewhat more sense than many of the other "fake marriage" stories out there. (Key word there being somewhat. In this day and age it's hard to come up with a 100% plausible reason.) I also enjoyed the characters--both Lauren and Mack are likable, down-to-earth kinds of people (for all that Mack is insanely rich) and don't even get me started on baby Callie. Absolutely adorable, though she does tend to let them both off a little easily in the brand-new-to-parenting department. Still, so far, so good.




    Then we get to the but...




    If my brother and wife were missing at sea and presumed dead--or my business partner/best friend, for that matter--I would absolutely want more proof sooner, not later, that they actually were in some sort of witness protection program. I wouldn't be okay with going on the assumption that that's what was going on after being told of (or having) one conversation with the brother saying it was a possibility. I'd expect some kind of confirmation somehow and not be satisfied until I got it. (Especially since they're twins, and presumably even closer than your average siblings. Lauren mentions more than once about the whole "twin connection" thing, so you'd think...)




    Almost all of the relationship conflict could have been solved in a single, honest, actual conversation. Instead, every time the two characters talked each only heard what they expected to hear and completely twisted around what was actually said to fit their preconceived ideas. Drove. Me. Crazy. Just talk, already!




    In all, it was a decent book--it made for a pleasant morning's read--but it didn't quite live up to its potential. I would definitely give another book by this author a chance, however, in the hopes that this one was just a one-off.

    Overall I enjoyed reading this story. It's quick paced and fun.

    Overall I enjoyed reading this story. It's quick paced and fun. The characters are independent and strong in their own ways so that when combined together they make a good couple. 

    I found myself easily delving into the story. It starts off with a bang with a big shock thrown at the main characters. It's one that the reader can sympathize with if you have a close family member with children. I don't yet but I have close friends who have kids so it's something I can still relate to in Mack's shoes.

    My only real qualm is the fact that the main characters kept fighting their natural urges and attraction. It really is like watching a ping pong match going back and forth. They keep sending mixed messages, for instance, they say or do something trying to distance themselves when they really mean the opposite. This sort of irked me but I can see why they did and reacted the way they did. Still I believe truth would have been an easy solution if they were more honest to each other and themselves.

    It was interesting to watch the two characters handle their new changes into temporary parental-ship. It was adorable to see Mack handle the transition since he was more of a bachelor so his lack of training was more entertaining. Whereas Lauren runs a daycare so it's more natural for her, plus the baby is her niece so there's more of a connection.

    The love scenes were nice and sexy. I liked them a lot. They were spaced out decently but for some reason I couldn't believe they would be able to do any that with a baby around... I would imagine they would be too tired from work or taking care of the baby and would want to pass out. lol But I guess I shouldn't underestimate the need of the libido.

    The ending was good. All the points leading up to the end was decent and am satisfied with how it concluded. I like at the end there was no change in Lauren that could have easily solved one of her internal problems. Instead she dealt with it in a different way and I applaud the author for handling it that way.

    I recommend this book if you like the movie "Life as We Know It" because it's similar to the book.

    Review:




    This story is full of lack of communication and characters being afraid to take a leap at love.




    The story is about Mack and Lauren, who have pretty much lusted over each other since they were in college.  Now, they are thrown together because of Lauren's missing brother and sister-in-law and they must take care of their baby left behind, Callie.  Okay, who leaves a stipulation in a will that to take care of a baby, that person must be married??  The only option Mack and Lauren see is to get a quickie marriage of convenience to keep Callie.  Now, you have three people having major life changes in a short amount of time and no one talking about their feelings.  Mack and Lauren act on their lust and as they live together, raise a child, they become emotionally invested and eventually fall in love, though neither of them tell the other this.  I am going to leave out spoiler points for other's reading enjoyment, but their lack of communication leads to a LOT of misunderstanding.




    I liked the story, thought Mack and Lauren needed to go to therapy, but it was an enjoyable read that had me tearing up in parts.

    I love romances and this is one of the finest caliber! Forced into a fake marriage to parent Lauren's brother and Mack's business partner's daughter these two who believe marriage is incompatible to their lifestyle find that isn't necessarily correct. Lauren and Mack discover that their love for little Callie smooths edges they thought were granite and their misunderstanding and distrust of love doesn't stop them from finding "sex" or "making love" so hot as to burn the pages not just the sheets! An Alpha playboy and stubborn daycare owner find the mesh that make every page a pleasure to read! I loved "The Tycoon's Bride...and Baby".
