Book & Author Details:
Trophy Husband  by Lauren Blakely
Publication date: May 20th 2013 
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance (the author describes it as mid-20s Sex and the City vibe)

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.

Excerpt 6:

I brush last night’s solo ride from my mind when I see him. I have to. I can’t let him see that he’s already done so many things to me. That he’s unraveled me and I’ve come for him. I have to back this all up and let him be my gaming tutor.

“So do you teach a lot of newbies how to play Guitar Hero?”

“Not as much as a few yeas ago,” Chris says, then hands me a black plastic guitar. The guitar is a cross between a real guitar and the sort of miniature kid-size guitar someone might give away in a grab bag at a party for musically-inclined ten-year-olds.

“What can I say? I’m a retro-loving gal.” I point to my flirty little vintage blue dress with a cherry pattern on it.

“That’s a totally hot dress, and if you keep pointing to it, it’ll make it hard for me to concentrate on giving you lessons.”

I hide a wild grin at the compliment, as I drop the guitar strap over my head, slinging the plastic instrument across my belly. It’s not mere fashion happenstance that I chose this dress. It accentuates all my best assets, and I also love it, so I feel good when I wear it. And with his comment, I’m left to wonder if he’s entertained after-hours thoughts about me too. How far they went. If he touched himself, if he pictured me doing things to him, if I made him come too. My mind is awash in dirty thoughts that are dangerously close to making me too turned on to function. So I shove away all the delicious images of Chris undressed, naked, in his bed, lost in thoughts of me.
