This book was great. The storyline set you up with a funny, empowering, exciting adventure and I thought every bit of it was great. Enter McKenna happy go lucky engaged to a wonderful man, living the perfect life, until the night before their wedding where she is dumped Via voicemail for a younger woman he met in vegas.
Flash forward into the present and Mckenna is doing great. She is successful, happy, and living a life she is content with. Until her Ex and his new younger wife show back up into the picture. McKenna is determined to show him that men aren't the only one who can have Trophy Spouses. Enter HILARIOUS storyline. After some thought and encouragement from her dear friends McKenna decides to find herself a Trophy Husband. She will be using her Blog to help decide clothes, dates, qualities, etc. With One main stipulation: He must be under 23. Its a super entertaining and still very real feeling Love story.
One thing McKenna doesn't account for is the possibility that in this process she will actually fall in love with someone. Enter Chris. He has nothing to do with the contest and is just someone that she bumped into and connected with at a Game store. But he is the guy. She is Instantly attracted to him and must find a way to rope him into the game, even if its purely just to have more time with him. She encounters some difficult choices in this book and its very intriguing to watch the way she decides how to solve them.
McKenna is a spitfire, sarcastic, empowered,exciting person. I Adored her as a character and wished I have my own McKenna to be friends with :D This story was a Great read. Some of the stuff that comes along and from these character is purely hilarous. I couldn't get enough. I was hooked, line and sinker to the outcome of this story. I TOTALLY loved the ending and am smacking myself in the head for not finding this author sooner. She is another MUST have for your shelves.
All in all though, my FAVORITE part of this book were the steamy fantasies that McKenna describes in her book. Holy Novel were they HOT. You are tortured and tortured and Tortured with them throughout the book. I would totally get into the scene and then be all angry because it ended and wasn't real. Pure Torture I tell ya. THEN we got the Real scenes and I was wide eyed reading them. Hot. Its the best word to describe them. Ok, I am done ranting about the hot sex, So go read it :D
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.
