Review: Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely

~ Synopsis ~
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.

3.5 Star Review by Annie
What do you get when you mix a scorned woman and video blog? You get a quest for all woman that men aren’t the only ones who can get arm candy.
The day before McKenna was supposed to walk down the aisle with the guy she has been with for 9 years, she gets the surprise of a lifetime. A phone call calling off the wedding. Her fiancé ran off and got married to a younger girl he meet while celebrating his bachelor party. He destroyed her heart, but he didn’t stop there. Every time she turns around he is finding new ways to hurt her and torture her a little more.
So in order to show the world and Todd that woman can do the same thing that men do, McKenna devises a plan to find a trophy husband. Her friend and her set rules:  He can’t be older than twenty-three, he has to be smoking hot and have a rock hard body.  Little did she know the trophy husband search would take on a life of its own.
Everything is going great, until McKenna meets Chris.  Since the moment McKenna met Chris she cannot stop thinking and fantasizing about him. The only problem is Chris doesn’t meet the trophy husband guidelines.  Does McKenna find what she is looking for?
Trophy Husband is a fun light hearted romance that has a whole lot of sexual tension and fantasy. I loved the chemistry between McKenna and Chris. They have an undeniable attraction that made me squirm around in my seat.  This book had some slow parts, but overall was a great read.
