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. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, sexy romance, falling in love)

**TROPHY HUSBAND is the third book in the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series. Each book can be read as a standalone, though you will likely enjoy the other books in the series.**

Trophy Husband was a FANTASTIC read. It was so fresh and funny and steamy as all get out. I adored the characters and loved seeing the chemistry between McKenna and Chris sizzle right off the pages. The book stayed with me long after I finished it, Chris for even longer than that. :) This was a fun, flirty book and the best in Ms. Blakely's collection IMO.

McKenna's got issues. I understand. Her heart's been trampled on, and that sucks. But I love her because instead of doing the kind of pathetic, indiscrete Bridgit Jones wallow that degrades every woman on the planet, (i.e. fall into a bottle of vodka and a quart of ice cream and stay there for six months...and does anybody really find that amusing anymore?), she holds her head high and decides to show her ex she's moved on. (Yes, thank you. A new reaction to getting one's heart trampled). Except, inside, she hasn't gotten over the sting of betrayal. But she gamely searches for her very own trophy husband--the obvious answer to her ex's younger, aggressively limber choice. And that brings us to Chris. I loved Chris. Hot. Handsome. Brainy. He's the total package, if only McKenna can let go of her "plans" long enough to see it! The story unfolds with all of Blakely's typical humor and heat. But it's the breath-stealing affection that turns her stories into something more than mere contemporary romance. Blakely delivers another "keeper" with Trophy Husband!

Lauren Blakely did it again!!!!! This book is full of sexiness. Chris is my favorite book boyfriend of all time. How could you not love a sexy, tech savvy man who does and says all the right things!?!? The "bad boy" character has been written over and over again...this novel shows what it's like to find a decent man!!!!

Lauren Blakely did a fantastic job with a title that sounded unrealistic. I loved every minute and had to read it one sitting.

What a cute story! I absolutely loved it. Totally original! Just know that it's not a sexy romance story. The cover had me thinking that it might be sexier. It's just a funny romance. It'd be a great romcom movie.

This was was surprisingly good. I had nevet read a book from this author and the trophy husband contest sounded too unrealistic. But I was wrong, and the book turned out to be very entertaining, with very well developed and relatable characters. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I did not particularly liked how the author filled some chapters with description of sex scenes that the heroine imagined. Not only were they not needed, they were distracting. I ended up skimming through them. But the rest was great. I particularly liked the hero, yummy!

I bought the boxed set Tangled Up In Love which included: Caught Up In Us Pretending He's Mine Trophy Husband Playing With Her Heart These can all be read as stand alone books but I recommend reading them in the above order. They are all wrapped up in each other, both character and timewise. In the boxed set, there are 648 pages (NOOK). All four books are about finding love and what it means to each different set of couples. There are also steamy love scenes in all the books, which is always good, right? Lauren Blakely's writing style is smooth and very believable. You can picture all the characters as if they were your neighbors or best friends. I highly recommend this series.

Mckenna is the definition of an idiot. She is a complete dumba$$. Sure this is light romcom type book....but no way in heck am I sympathetic to her when she acknowledges she her actions are dumb BUT DOES IT ANYWAY justifying it with the most ridiculous reasons in the history of man.

This story started out slow for me and then it picked up a little. I stuck with it and glad I did. I loved the teasing banter between her and Chris and how they were perfect for each other even if it took her longer to figure it out. It was a cute story about making a point and getting over your ex. About moving on, taking a chance and opening your heart again.

## BORING. I did not like the writing style. Pages and pages of useless information. And so many "in her imagination" sex scenes which were too long. If they had actually been happening, that would've been one thing but....they weren't real. Also, the way the author jumped around was frustrating. They'd be in the middle of a conversation and the author would decide to infuse a different subject. I kept losing track of the conversation, having to go back to see what was said 8 pages ago. No thanks, won't be reading again.

I loved Caught Up In Us - the whole former lovers thing - and now I love Trophy Husband. It's funny and charming and McKenna is as lovable as Kat in Caught. McKenna is hip and fun and fashionable and quirky and launches this crazy Trophy Husband  plan. Who hasn't wanted to get back at an ex? Chris is as hot and fun as Bryan in Caught and a good guy too. I"m so over the 'bad boy' thing, let's cheer for the good guys out there! I'm really getting to  like Blakely's stuff.
