Trophy Husband Guest Post and Giveaway!!

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.

Top 10 Things You Don't Know About Chris
1. He built this tree house when he was twelve. Chris, his brother Jay, and their sister Jill used to hang out in it.

2. The first time he met McKenna, she was wearing this tee-shirt. He looked at the shirt alot. Because it’s clever, and because he was checking out her boobs.

3. He didn’t like his sister Jill’s boyfriend in high school. He was never entirely sure why. The dude just rubbed him the wrong way. (Readers might learn why in Playing With My Heart)

4. He has never worn a suit in his life.

5. His favorite movie is Get Shorty, his favorite TV show is Arrested Development and his favorite author is Carl Hiassen.

6. He can do an ollie, a kickflip, a daffy and more on a skateboard. He can also snowboard, but he doesn’t like cold weather, and thinks Tahoe is too crazy crowded, so he’d rather be at the beach.

7. He played lacrosse in high school. Because guys who play lacrosse are hot. He scored the winning goal in the championship game his senior year.

8. The last concert he went to was Arcade Fire. Before that, he saw the rising indie band Retractable Eyes. He and McKenna are going to see Jane Black perform this weekend in San Francisco at The Fillmore. She’s been compared to Adele, and McKenna thinks she’s awesome. (Jane Black also happens to the main character in a novel I’m releasing this fall with Entangled. It’s mentioned in the “Coming Soon” section at the back of Trophy Husband.)

9. Chris and McKenna had a quickie in the dressing room of her favorite vintage shop in Petaluma when they were driving back from wine country last weekend. He bought her this dress afterwards. She’s wearing it tomorrow for her show.

10. He was invited to rush several frats in college. He politely declined.



Lauren Blakely is an unabashed fan of clever jokes, toast, and good guys in novels. Like the heroine in CAUGHT UP IN US, she thinks life should be filled with movie kisses and coffee drinks. Lauren lives in California with her husband and children, and spends her days writing both true stories and make-believe ones.
