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.

Lauren Blakely is an amazing author. I have truly enjoyed each one of her books that I have read or listened to. Her writing is what made this audible experience the most enjoyable!
I have not, but she did very well. I will listen to more of her in the future.
Trophy Husband is a sweet, funny romantic book about hurt, betrayal, revenge and finally healing and finding love that you didn't think existed again. McKenna was hurt deeply when her fiancée left her the day before their wedding and eloped to Vegas with a young bimbo from his bachelor party. McKenna comes up with a plan to play the same game that men do and find herself a young "trophy husband". She has this contest on her blog to have the audience help her pick the perfect trophy husband. As you read this book you'll find out that her game isn't as easy as she thinks and she just may fall hard!
The narrator did a great job of bringing the characters to life. I enjoyed her fun voice and the entraining story line.
I really like when McKenna went on a date with the meter guy .That was hilarious.
McKenna. She did a great job with the lead.
I listened to it while working out. I made everything better.
I will be buying more of this author's audio books.
One of my favorites!
The witty banter between the characters was amazing. I laughed the entire time.
I loved this book! These characters are funny and sexy and very believable. I loved the chemistry and the witty banter.
This was a fun love story with several L.O.L. moments. Chris was super swoony and I have a new appreciation for arcade games, thanks to a particular scene. There was plenty of angst, some steamy sex, and a sweet guy who did not steal the first sip from McKenna's Diet Coke...MAJOR BROWNIE POINTS!
McKenna - she was sassy, flirty and self confident but humble.
Very high up there. I absolutely adore this story, and hearing it read makes it even more enjoyable. There's just something about hearing a book read that makes it even more engaging.
Any of Lauren Blakely's other stories, especially the Caught Up In Us series. They're truly romance with a bit of naughty, and great characters, the type that you'd want to hang out with yourself.
She got McKenna perfectly. When I read 'Trophy Husband' and 'heard' McKenna's voice in my head, it sounded remarkably close to how Samara depicted her. Inflection, tone, everything, just spot-on.
Yes. Sadly, time was not on my side to allow this. On the bright side, I got to enjoy the experience for even longer. :-)
I highly recommend any of Lauren's books on audio. They're a great way to bring the story even more alive.
Abso-freaking-lutely! I love Lauren Blakely. I loved reading the book Trophy Husband. So, listening to it via Audible was a no-brainer for me.
McKenna and Chris's Happily Ever After
Absolutely! I didn't want my workouts to end so I could keep going!
Lauren Blakely is a 6-star author! Trophy Husband is NO exception!!
The playful banter between the characters was wonderful. I was smiling half the time as I listened.
It reminded me of Sophie Kinsella books in that it made me smile so often. A lot of humor and heart in this book.
I haven't, but she was really good.
I wanted to! If only I had the time. I listened about an hour a day while I was cleaning and the kids were doing homework. It made the time fly by!
McKenna and Chris's story is a PERFECT introduction to Lauren Blakely's fun style. The story is super cute and sweet and the audible performance enhanced it. Great job by all!
Trophy Husband is up there with my top 5 Audiobooks of all time - the voice suits the character which isn't always the case. It completely worked.
“May the next man in McKenna's life be one of those heroes in a romance novel - rich, good-looking and perfect in every way.”
The narrator brings McKenna's story to life - she gives it heart and feeling. Her voice really made me feel like I was part of the story and not just an observer.
The book is fresh, current, funny, sweet, genuine and truthful. I listened to this on the drive to and from work everyday making the commute less painful! It made me laugh out loud several times.
Our Heronie, McKenna, is everything single women want - successful, comfortable money-wise, sexy, fashionable and has a great circle of friends. She makes us laugh, shows us her tender and insecure side but does all this with decorum and inner strength - it is truly wonderful to have a stong female lead in a romance novel! I would definately reccommend a Lauren Blakely novel to anyone needing lifted from a book slump!
"Sass, Witt, romance....it had it all...."
Overall a Great performance from the narrator, i thought she suited the character and I enjoyed listening to her.
I had a great time as it was lauren's style of sass, witty, hot totty, with some great lol moments.
Determined to nab herself a trophy husband after her jerk of an ex fiance jilted her, for yes.... a trophy wife. Mckenna a great and successful blogger announces the search on her blog and well..... Why the hell not i say!! Damn. Many a smile on my face and oohing and ahh moments listening in the car as dates and the search unfolds......
Chris, a Gamer who she bumps into, as her search gets going is drool worthy, but he is successful. Does that rule him out? Had some full on romantic butterflies going on, the type you get from a good easy chic lit read you know what i mean? Made me feel good..... made me smile.
Oh.... and that ex, how very dare he do what he tried to!!!!!! Lauren nearly had me emailing her in protest!
