MacKenzie Cahill has dealt with overbearing and overprotective brothers her entire life, making it near impossible to enjoy her teenage years. Having a boyfriend was practically impossible until she met a guy that wasn’t afraid to stand up to them – Dominic. He was sweet, thoughtful, and everything MacKenzie ever wanted in a man.
But when they go away to college at Old Dominion University, MacKenzie sees a whole new side of Dominic and begins to wonder if he really is different from every other guy.
Her world is turned upside down after a party, and her brothers’ best friend Hunter is the one there to offer her a shoulder to cry on. The chemistry between them is electric, and feelings for each other that have been hidden for years are finally voiced.
Is Hunter willing to be disloyal to his best friends in order to be with the one girl he’s always secretly wanted?
So for the second week in a row I am totally smitten with a book and this time, Megan Smith’s Trying Not to Love You has me sitting up and begging for more…. not to mention that her main male character shares a name with my son, which is also the second time in two weeks one of my kids names was used in a book… odd right? LOL!
I loved this book hand down! The characters are just awesome! MacKenzie and Hunter are a great book couple, but the supporting cast around them is just as amazing! Her brothers all play a very important role and you can really get the sense of how this family is so close nit. There were some seriously tense moments in the exchanges between her and her brothers. This is what happens when you fall in love with your brothers best friend.
She was so torn between the love of her brothers and the love of her life. She was physically and emotionally ill over the whole thing and I could totally relate to her. I’ve felt that myself in the past so I really could understand her emotional state. I wanted to hug her and tell her that if it was meant to be it would all work out.
There were some twists in this book that were so well hidden by all the rest of the coming and going on, that when it popped out of nowhere I had to think back and say to myself how did I NOT see that coming! Yeah it was a like a freight train….. does it all work out? I have no idea cause Megan left me hanging and I mean hanging… the end left me screaming NO NO NO!!!!
This book is very well written and I think that you will enjoy these characters and fall in love with all of them just as I did. Megan has done a fantastic job crafting this story and I am happy to give her my 5 star seal of approval for this one! It was emotional, kept me guessing and interested from the first page to the very end, and then left me begging her to write faster because I need to know what happens next…
