Trophy Husband (Caught Up in Love #3)

Trophy Husband

I am generally a huge fan of Lauren Blakely and I have really enjoyed the Caught Up in Love  series thus far, but I was really disappointed with this book as a third installment to the series. This book lacks Lauren's powerful characters as well as her flawless writing style because I felt that most of this book was spent in McKenna's imaginary scenarios and less in the actual story. I also did not like the fact that this book was written in a single point if view writing style as it results in Chris's character lacking depth and us barely getting to know him well enough other than the fact that he is 29 years old and he is a gamer. McKenna's character was annoying due to her imagination as well as her being unable to move on with her life after her fiance left her and her having to prove a point of equality. The chemistry between McKenna and Chris was good, but not as scorching as we are used to in Lauren's books. Overall this was a an average read which did not live up to the brilliant series by a great author.

Rating: 2.5/5


McKenna Bell is a successful fashion blogger who is still recovering from her fiance leaving her a day before their wedding for another woman he met at his bachelors party. After running into her cheating ex and his new wife McKenna decides that is wrong that only men are allowed to get trophy wives, therefore she starts up an internet reality competition for a trophy husband.

After the competition is announced that is when Chris comes into the picture and he has everything that McKenna wants as he is handsome, successful and has amazing chemistry with her. McKenna will now have to come face to face with what she really wants in life which is either protecting her heart or letting go of the pain for a new beginning.
