Ever wanted to fast forward to your happily ever after?
My name is Mackenzie Locke and I’m a loveaholic. I haven’t got a handle on men. Not even a little bit.
So I staged an intervention and booked me and my two best friends into Love Rehab, complete with a love shaman, horse therapy and a bunch of stones that promise to change my life. I’m not leaving until I’m cured.
Lesson #1: the first night of your stay, don’t have a one night stand with the hottest guy you’ve ever seen in your life.
Lesson #2: make sure your one night stand isn’t planning on sticking around, teasing you, tempting you right back into his Levis.
Lesson #3: Whoops. I forgot this one. I was too busy daydreaming about Blake McKenna’s mouth on mine and the way his five o’clock shadow feels on my thighs.
So maybe I’m not the best student. Maybe I wasted my time and money on Love Rehab. But I can’t help that I want to spend every minute with Blake, naked under the stars. Perhaps he can teach me every lesson I ever needed to learn.
Love Rehab is a standalone and does not relate to any other titles by this author.
MacKenzie is at a crossroads in her life. A self-confessed loveaholic, she has just be dumped by her 3rd fiancé and is perplexed at how she seems to be getting it so wrong. In a last ditch attempt to stop rushing into relationships that go nowhere, she stages her own intervention and heads to Oklahoma with her 2 best friends in the hope that Love Rehab will give her the answers she seeks. What she doesn’t expect is to fall at the first hurdle and have a one night stand with Blake, who she meets in the town’s only bar. And when a one night stand turns into more, is she falling into old patterns? Or is Blake going to teach her more about herself than Love Rehab actually is.
I really enjoyed this book. I am going through a bit of a Louise Bay binge after reading King of Wall Street, and I am loving all her work. Love Rehab is a bit of a departure from the previous books of hers that I have read. Where they take place in big cities like London, New York, Chicago, Love Rehab’s back drop is a back water in Oklahoma. I loved how 3 girls from Boston struggled to adjust to country life and the back to nature rehab of camping, horses and shamans; I found myself giggling away on more than one occasion. But obviously, although in the most light-hearted, this is a romance about 2 people from different backgrounds who have so much in common and have both reached crossroads in their lives, so it is more than just a fluff fest.
So as much as I loved the secondary characters in this book, Louise Bay makes sure that Mackenzie and Blake shine bright. They both find a kindred spirit in the most unlikely of places and at a time that isn’t the best. It is romantic and will give you that warm feeling in your belly, before making you hot with their sizzling chemistry. But don’t expect a straight forward, cookie cutter HEA, this book has more about it than that.
Another great read from an author that is becoming an automatic 1-click for me.
