Title: Trophy Husband
Author: Lauren Blakely
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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.

Trophy Husband is about McKenna trying to get over her ex, and to make a stand for all women. She decides she wants a younger man to be her "trophy husband" so she and her friends decide to start finding guys that fit the trophy husband categories. 

Things start to progress quickly when news spreads on her blog. McKenna starts getting lots of men who want to take her. So she decides to let her blog followers decide who she should date, and who the winner will be. 

But McKenna already has her sights on the gamer guy Chris. He's exactly what she wants, except he's not in the age group. He's actually older then her. So she asks him to pretend to want to be her trophy husband, so it will give his show more publicity. Well that's what she says anyways, but that may not be exactly true. McKenna's feelings for him are growing stronger, and she's not sure she should continue with the trophy husband search or not. 

This book is a fun, hilarious romance. At times I was frustrated with the heroine because I felt she could be immature, but other than that I did enjoy the book. However it's not something I think is great, its just something that is a light fun read to pass the time with.
