Synopsis (Goodreads):
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.
Thoughts on Trophy Husband: This was a fun little romance. Since I enjoy both fun and romance, it pretty much hit the spot. Which is exactly what I ask for when I pick up a book.

Feeling a little heartsick after running into her ex-fiance and his new wife, McKenna hatches a plan to show everyone (and by everyone, it was mostly her ex) that a lady can snag a younger boy toy of her own. Her low-key approach to revving up her love life takes a turn when she starts getting inundated with men applying for the position after a fortuitous online announcement of her scheme.

The problem? The guy she's finding herself into isn't interested in being a trophy husband. But since she's committed to this trophy husband search on her blog, she's kinda stuck going through with it.

The book was just fun. McKenna's ex was rocking the douchecanoe vibes, her friends were crazy supportive even when they didn't necessarily agree with her plan of attack, and those first few dates McKenna committed to were hilariously horrific.

Fun with enough sexy to keep it steamy. I liked it.
