The conceit of this book made for an interesting read in light of the immigration issues currently plaguing the United States. As a note, I fall solidly on the side of how the hoops for immigrating to this country are ridiculous, which is how the plot of Operation Green Card becomes even remotely plausible. So, we’re just going to go with it and look at the story as it stands on its own. Mostly, what I learned is that even fake weddings are incredibly stressful.
On the plus side, the representation of disability is once again treated incredibly well, which has been on of my favorite aspects of this series. However, I’m not a huge fan of the “bisexual for you” trope, which was incredibly convenient for the plot. Arkady and Jason make a great pair, so I’m not sure why that trope had to be used rather than Jason being bisexual from the beginning, even if was something he’d never acted on.
Something I did love about this book was that despite being a romance novel geared primarily toward a female audience, the men are still very much men. And by that I mean they are absolutely terrible at communicating with each other. Definitely one of those books where if the characters actually talked to each other, there’d be no plot! Instead, we got to see Jason and Arkady stumble their way into a (very awesome) relationship.
Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
