Book review: Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely

Goodreads ⭐ Amazon ⭐

After being dumped for a much younger woman the day before her wedding, McKenna’s ready to get her revenge. No, she’s not going to get violent. There will be no stalking or retaliation against the new bride. No, McKenna’s plan is to get herself a trophy husband to prove that it’s not just men who can play that game. To find her candidates, McKenna solicits the help of her friends and her blog’s followers – but she never planned on actually falling for someone mid-crusade.

I have a bunch of Lauren Blakely on my TBR. This was actually one of four of her books that I bought and then just… didn’t read for some reason. I know she’s a big name in romance and I’m not really sure why I’ve never picked up any of her books, but I’m glad that I finally did. This book was a lot of fun! There’s relatively little drama (just enough to keep things interesting) plus a lot of bonus factors like good dogs and a fictionalized version of Ellen.

There were, of course, a couple things I would have changed (when are there not, though, I know I’m picky) but overall this was a really cute book and I liked both McKenna and Chris. I actually have a couple of the other books in this series, so keep an eye out for those reviews too once my life slows down a bit.

Final rating: ★★★★☆
