No More Mr. Nice Guy

Like a bad-choice-making boomerang, Mazy Gulliver has returned to her mom's tiny house in Brandt Mountain. But this time, she's got her teenage son, Tru, in tow and no intention of messing up ever again.Mazy's so determined to rebuild her life she hardly minds beingthe new loan collector, or even working for Tad, her ex. She's not here to make friends—or fall in love.

Sweet, dependable Eli Latham has loved Mazy since they got pretend married in second grade. But after being burned by Mazy for two decades, Eli's got a new strategy. Mazy likes bad boys, so a bad boy is what he'll be. How hard can it be to act like a jerk?

Not for the first time, men are making Mazy crazy, though she's determined to do what's right for her and Tru. But breaking old habits is hard, and if she really wants things to change she'll have to face her biggest adversary: herself.

This is a funny story that will keep you reading.

Such an entertaining read. Nice guy Eli Lathum is tired of coming in last when it comes to his lifelong love, Mazy Gulliver, a woman who always falls for the wrong guy. When Mazy suddenly moves back into town with her teenage son, Tru, Eli decides it's time to take drastic measures and channel his inner bad-boy to try to win her heart for good. Morsi does a great job transforming Eli from "boy-next-door" into "first-class jerk" when he's out with Mazy, but away from her his true character can't help but shine through as he helps care for his disabled father and teaches Mazy's son about the craft of woodworking. A really great story about second chances that proves that past mistakes can be overcome and that waiting for Mr. Right is better than settling for Mr. Right Now.

Second chance stories are always some of my favorite reads, and this one was no exception. Mazy and Eli were never really "together"--at least in her mind. Though he has loved her for years, he's always been her best friend and rebound guy. Even when the book started and Mazy moved back home and they first got back together, it was obvious that she wasn't seeing him as an option for real relationship material. Eli's plan to get her to take him seriously works (pretend to be a "bad boyfriend" a la the blog-o-verse)--sort of. I have to admit that at times what he did made me laugh, though just as often his actions made me cringe. (And more than once I just sat there, my mouth hanging open in "oh no he didn't" fashion. He did.) He absolutely took it too far, and I cried a bit inside when his actions had Mazy doubting herself again. (If only Eli's dad could talk! I'm sure he would have reined him in before it got to that point--though I suppose then Eli probably wouldn't have confided that much to him anyway, so...) On the other hand, Eli's actions did have some positive implications. For one, he started standing up for himself more in other areas of his life--especially with his brother, who worked for him and took major advantage of Eli--which was definitely a change for the good. Mazy really wasn't seeing Eli as a relationship material and by not being so over-the-top eager to please as he'd been in the past, how she saw him was finally changed. (Though she definitely had inklings all along that something was going on. Eli couldn't keep the "bad boyfriend" bit going all the time, and those glimpses confused Mazy, but also gave her hope.) Do I agree with all of his choices? Heck no. Does he make up for them in the end? I think so. And her initial reaction to finding out the truth is spot on, and well deserved. ;) Mazy also needed to finally see herself differently, to respect herself, stand up for what she deserved, and find a place for herself in the world--something she was working on for the entire novel. When she finally snaps, stands up for herself and dumps Eli, it was a major moment for both of them and something that was necessary for both of their journeys. He needed it just as much as she did. In a nutshell--we have two characters who both need to learn, make mistakes, and grow to get to a place where they can be together and work on an HEA. They do all of the above, and on top of that it's an entertaining read. Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
