Goodreads Summary:


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.


What Made Me Swoon:

"We don't make it to the bedroom.  I place my hands on his cheeks and start kissing him on the stairs the second I shut the door.  He responds fiercely and we are all lips and tongue and teeth crashing into each other in an anthemic song of kissing, a big epic tune of music, and passion, and hope.  Of falling in love again.  Of letting go and starting over.  He lifts me up and I wrap my legs around his waist, and he carries me up the steps, and lays me down on the couch.  He looks at me, appraising me, and I feel so vulnerable, but so right about this, about him, about us, as he trails his hand down my bare leg.  I sigh, as he kisses my ankle, then makes his way to my calf, stopping to plant a tender, but hot kiss behind my knee, and soon I am wriggling, and wanting, and needing so desperately to feel him."  (eARC, pg. 158)

  6. I have it on my TBR list. Can't wait to read it :)

    Great swoon!

    Ok, Lindy ... Listen to me ... You need to get your hands on TANGLED by Emma Chase.

    Oh my freakin' God !!!! I have never laughed so much while reading a book.

    Drew Evans is UNSTOPPABLE !!!! He's like a box of Pringles... Once you Pop, the fun don't stop !

    Here are a few quotes that I loved:

    “She’ll never forget this. She’ll always remember…me. Maybe that’s chauvinistic and egotistical, but it’s the truth. Up and down, over and over, I lick her from end to end.”

    “I want you to move in here with me. I want to fall asleep with your hair in my face every night. And I want to wake up wrapped around you every morning. I want us to spend whole weekends without any clothes on at all. I want to have clean fights and dirty makeup sex...I want to talk to you until the sun comes up, and I want to bring you cereal in bed every Sunday. I want to work long, endless hours in this office, but only if you’re here next to me.”

    I'm not even gonna start with the funny quotes because this book is 100% HILARIOUS!!!

    Drew & Kate together are just HOT!!!! This book is just plain AMAZING!!!!

    I love reading from the male POV and Emma Chase delivered with Tangled!

    Go check it out!!!!! I'll never forget Drew. I keep on going back to my notes to LOL ;)
