Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely

Sometimes you can't help falling in love, even when you try to do the opposite...

Successful fashion blogger McKenna Bell has spent far too long protecting herself after the way her ex-fiancé left her at the altar for a college chick he met the night of his bachelor party. Loving again, trusting again, well, that's just not in the cards. Especially now that her ex is back in town with his new woman, demanding custody of McKenna's favorite creature in the whole world--her dog.

No effing way. McKenna's had enough of him, and she decides to even the score by finding her own hot young thing -- a Trophy Husband. Sure, she's only twenty-seven, but doesn't that make it even more fun -- and infuriating to her ex -- to pursue a younger man?

When she declares her intentions on her daily blog, her quest quickly skyrockets in popularity, and that's when Chris enters the picture, and he’s got all the assets. He's handsome, successful, and turns her inside out with a kiss to end all kisses, the kind that makes you feel like a shooting star.

But loving again could mean losing again, and it's so much easier to focus on getting even, isn't it? Unless, you just can't help falling in love. Which means McKenna will have to come face to face with what she really wants in life -- protecting her heart from hurt, or letting go of her fears of a new beginning.

My Review
3.5 stars.

This was such a great story. McKenna's life was turned upside down by one night in Vegas. Her fiance calls to tell her he can't marry her the night before her wedding. And he has fallen in love with a stripper! Fast forward a couple years later while visiting her favorite diner guess who is sitting at the table next to her? Her ex-fiance with his new wife! Barry is a total DICK! I really wanted to reach into the book and beat the living hell out of him! After crying and cowering in the bathroom for hours, McKenna decides Barry isn't the only one who can have a trophy on their arm. She decides two can play that game. She takes her quest for a trophy husband public by announcing it on her fashion blog. And it's popularity catches like fire. Her fans will choose the final contestants. While she is in search for her trophy husband she meets a man that she really likes, Chris. Should she continue on her quest, end it and pursue Chris, or convince him to become a contestant?

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
