Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely Blog Tour



***WARNING***This Book contains Mature Adult Content!***

Today I would like share with you all to check out my review for the Trophy Husband Blog Tour!! :)

From 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-fiancĂ© 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.
My Thoughts:

Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely was a cute contemporary romance novel, overall!

While at times there were things that bothered me a bit, I did, in the end, enjoy it!  It had a somewhat interesting concept!

However, one thing that really got to me in this book was the main character, McKenna.  I honestly, at times found her to be a bit irritating... For instance, why would you want a Trophy Husband at the age of 26?  Okay, so I know she explained it in the book, by saying that she was trying to do this whole empowering woman thing; but seriously?? 26?? How is that OLD today?

I thought it was cool that McKenna was trying to be an independent woman, however, I didn't think she was doing it for the right reasons.  While she should have been doing it for herself, she was doing it to prove something to her d-bag of an ex-fiance.  What he did is pretty much one of the most unacceptable things to do to end a relationship!  Actually it might just be the top worst thing!  

Whenever McKenna and her girlfriends mentioned the term Trophy Husband, there was word going through my head...D.I.V.O.R.C.E. Instant Divorce to be more exact.  The hole concept of Trophy Wife and Trophy Husband to me leads ultimately to divorce about 80% of the time in my opinion.  I'm not saying it NEVER works, but I mean seriously?  If you're holding a dating contest on your blog to meet a younger husband who you are pretty much going to be the sugar mama for...(in a singing voice)...divorce...

HOWEVER, by the end all of that changed!  The whole concept was pretty much thrown out the window, and like many of you know...because come on, a contemporary romance, every body knows that the reader will get their happy ending ;).

I was cheering for McKenna and Chris from the moment she heard his voice!  I mean come one...video game blogger+fashion blogger=happily ever after!!!!  

Chris sounded absolutely gorgeous!! While it took McKenna a couple epiphanies to realize Chris might possibly be the one, she finally realized something along the way, that could change her view on a lot of things!

Should getting back at your ex, for breaking your heart, decide everything in your life?

Overall rating: 

I loved the outcome of this book!  McKenna was able to learn from her past mistakes and live life the way it is supposed to be...your OWN way!  I recommend this book to my fellow contemporary adult romance readers!  It's cheesy, and I will warn contain quite a few women fantasies, involving both imaginary and real sex...so if you enjoy a good steamy read...check this out!
