5 Star Review – His Convenient Husband by Robin Covington

5 Star Review – His Convenient Husband by Robin Covington















NFL football player Isaiah Blackwell lost his husband three years ago and is raising their teen son alone. He lives his life as quietly as his job allows, playing ball to support his family but trying not to draw unwanted attention. His quiet life is shaken up when a mutual friend introduces him to Victor, a visiting principal ballet dancer who is everything Isaiah is not.

Brash and loud, Victor Aleksandrov has applied for political asylum to avoid returning to Russia, where gay men are targeted and persecuted. He’s been outspoken about gay rights in his home country, and if he doesn’t get asylum, going back to Russia is a death sentence.

Their one-night stand turns into a tentative friendship, a relationship they both agree is temporary… until Victor’s denied asylum. Isaiah can’t offer Victor a happily ever after, but he can propose something that’ll keep Victor in the US and safe… marriage He just doesn’t expect his new husband to dance away with his heart.















The always amazing Robin Covington kicks off a new series with a book that is so good it just may be her best yet. Seriously, this book is amazingly good.

Saying I loved it does not cover my feelings for this story and these characters.
When the author said she was going to write a full length male/male romance, I may have squealed in excitement. I knew Robin Covington could pull it off and boy did she!!! I’ve had the pleasure of reading this book twice since I got it and let me tell you dear reader, this book is knock your socks off good.

I know I keep saying how good it is, sorry I can’t help it. But it really is. I’m struggling to find the words to give it justice. This story sucked me in from the opening pages, dragged me through every emotion, had me wanting to throw it across the room at one point and left me in giddy gooey happiness by the end and I loved every second of it.

Just wait till you meet and fall in love with both the Blackwell men in Isaiah and Evan and the oh so wonderful Victor. They are all so special that you can’t keep from falling in love with them from the first moment you meet them.

This was a beautiful love story between two men who instantly gravitate towards each other and somehow find the other part of their soul while doing it. Yes the chemistry is off the charts hot between Isaiah and Victor, but for me it was the deeper connection they had that I loved.

The sinuously beautiful dancer and the widower athlete shouldn’t be a perfect pairing but they are and watching them open up to each other and fall was a fantastic thing to behold. Seeing them fight the pull of attraction and more, priceless and hot. Really hot.

I must mention Evan, Isaiah’s son who is hands down one of the most unique characters I have ever read. I LOVED him. Oh and Isaiah’s mother, she is one in a million and lovable.

I could gush on more, but I won’t because I honestly can’t recommend this book enough. There is nothing better than when you put a book down and keep thinking about it and this is one of those books. Robin Covington you have given us a book that will stay with me forever.
