Now called Love Unexpected

When the fierce redhead with the beautiful ass walks into the local bar, I can tell she’s passing through. And I’m looking for distraction while I’m in town—a hot hook-up and nothing more before I head back to the city.

If she has secrets, I don't want to know them.

If she feels good underneath me, I don't want to think about it too hard.

If she's my future, I don't want to see it.

I’m Blake McKenna and I’m about to teach this Boston socialite how to forget every man who came before me.

When the future I had always imagined crumbles before my very eyes. I grab my two best friends and take a much needed vacation to the country.

My plan of swearing off men gets railroaded when on my first night of my vacation, I meet the hottest guy on the planet. He’s a gorgeous distraction.

I’m certainly not going to reveal my deepest secrets to him as we steal away each night hoping no one will notice.

And the last thing I’m going to do is fall in love for the first time in my life.

My name is Mackenzie Locke and I haven’t got a handle on men. Not even a little bit.
Not until Blake.

MY REVIEW

I may not have fallen in love with Mackenzie, but I could definitely relate to her. I think many of us have found ourselves in her position. She's been dumped by her third fiance and is wondering what she's doing wrong. She believes that she's the problem somehow. She realizes that she's quite the catch (which she is) and is proud of the fact that she's had three men love her enough to propose. She enrolls herself into Love Rehab in order to find out what more she can do to please a man and get her HEA according to plan. It didn't take me long to figure out that the love Mackenzie speaks of isn't even real because she herself wasn't real. She's a people pleaser and for most of the book she wouldn't even acknowledge it (which drove me absolutely insane), but the H (Blake) helped her to realize her true self.

I loved Blake. I really appreciated his honesty and was grateful for his POV. He had his act together for the most part. His storyline was similar to the h's, but instead of trying to please he created distance in his relationships. He's been offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity but his fear makes him hesitant to take the risk or change the status quo. As he helps guide Mac to her truth, she inadvertently does the same for him in return.

These two together were incredibly endearing and insanely hot. Louise Bay created the perfect balance of feels and steam and this story grabbed my attention from its opening scene. This book was very low on angst or drama and very high on romance with a happy ending!
