Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Morgan Clark is desperate. With just her senior year to go at Clarendon College, and her scholarship up in smoke, she suddenly finds she can’t qualify for financial aid. And until Morgan finishes and can work full time, her sister can’t even start school.

Josh Hyatt is desperate. Without his degree from Clarendon he won’t be able to join his girlfriend in their dream career which she’s already begun, and he can’t qualify for government grants thanks to his estranged father’s interference.

Morgan, meet Josh. Josh, meet Morgan. Are they desperate enough to get legally wedded?

Legally Wedded is the third book in bestselling rom-com author Jennifer Griffith's Legally in Love series, following Attractive Nuisance and Asked & Answered.
My Review: 5 Stars
I don't know if I, personally, would enjoy a marriage of convenience, but I love it when that is a major plot point in books. Morgan and Josh are both desperate to finish college, but can't afford it without financial help. Morgan's family isn't well off, but the book of poetry that her mother wrote last year disqualifies her from the help she needs. Josh's father disinherited him and won't help out, but legally, he's still a dependent and can't escape it. While his girlfriend is in Europe for a year on an internship, he's determined to get through some schooling so they can be together. A perfect plan of fraud forms and both Josh and Morgan find themselves over their heads--in almost every way.

Morgan is adorable! Not only is she super model gorgeous, but she's as sweet as can be. For as shy as she is, she's great at going with the flow and putting herself out there. I love characters who feel like friends and who have me rooting for them. Josh has a lot to figure out in his confused life. He lacks confidence and directions, even though his outward appearance and upbringing screams otherwise.

I loved the chemistry! The scrapes and situations these two found themselves in were sometimes very humorous, sometimes sizzling (in a clean way), and other times heartbreaking. I loved the emotional journey with these great characters. Everyone needs a sibling like they each have and a beneficiary who showers them with attention, both in good ways and bad. This is a fantastic, clean romantic comedy and as always, I can't wait for more!

Content: mild romance (kissing, innuendo); nothing else of note. Clean!

About the Author:

unnamedFDRE9K6N Jennifer Griffith studied French, German, Japanese, and a wee bit of Spanish in her school days. Her grandmother was Norwegian, and Jennifer grew up with lots of Scandinavian traditions floating around, including fabulous cardamom laced cookies called Krumkaker, made on a fancy waffle iron. However, she’d never dream of trying to teach someone any of those languages. And she might botch the cookies. Instead, she writes novels in English, drives her five kids a million places, and laughs with her husband.
