Review: Inconveniently Yours by Ian O. Lewis

"Hi. My name is Chase and I'm addicted to Juan's chest." Inconveniently Yours

From the blurb:

“Swear to God, his nose is so high in the air he could drown in a rainstorm.”

Chase is a country boy living the dream, though most people would call it a nightmare. He’s the personal assistant to a powerful executive of a global conglomerate, a man so cold you’ll be forgiven for thinking ice water flows through his veins. When he first meets his boss he is smitten by him, but after two years of what can only be called low-paid slavery, he’s had enough. On the verge of quitting, disaster strikes, and Chase finally discovers a way to climb the corporate ladder. Unfortunately for him, that means marrying the boss.

Everyone loathes Juan, and he doesn’t give a damn. His only desire is to succeed, and he doesn’t care who he steps on to achieve his goals. When it’s discovered he has violated the terms of his visa, he’s threatened with deportation. Juan will do anything to stay in the United States, and not lose his powerful and lucrative job. Panicked, he tells the board of directors he’s marrying his assistant, Chase, who promptly blackmails Juan into promoting him. Unable to say no, the two embark on a road trip to meet Chase’s eccentric southern family, and end up discovering there’s more between them than they've ever thought possible.

Inconveniently Yours is the second book in the Southern Discomfort series. Prepare yourself for sweet tea and sour words, served alongside men discovering their deepest desires. Inconveniently Yours has it all; enemies to lovers, a fake relationship, and two men falling in love for the first time. So relax on your porch swing with a mint julep and a slice of pecan pie, and enjoy the journey to true love.

Laora's Review:

This was such a good read with a good dose of humour. Read throughout I had to laugh a fair bit. The story is told by both Chase and Juan in their POV. And to me it was low heat until rather far into the book, then smoldering became a fire.

Is it a completely original plot about a marriage for a visa? No, as almost nothing is, but it was well done and has an ending I found believable.

I really liked that especially Juan dares to let go of work after such a long time and be okay with maybe having to start over. And Chase saw an opportunity, took it and in the end got what he wanted most. I enjoyed the introduction to his eccentric family.

Of course Chase and Juan get their hea.
