When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on the blind date his mother had arranged for him.
I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.
After the unexpected second date, she didn’t know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.
It’s not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.
I shouldn’t have agreed to the blind date, but I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out when my mother insisted.
I will admit, I definitely shouldn’t have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.
The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction.
Then I found out he was a liar.
I’ve never been in over my head to this degree.
Then again, I’ve never been mixed up in love.
Mixed Up Love is a hard book to review. To make thing easier, I’m going to showcase what I liked and didn’t like.
- Laney was an established woman who wasn’t looking for love.
- Hunter’s attempt at wooing Laney.
- Laney and Hunter’s chemistry. That had that instant connection.
- The humor. This book had me laughing and smiling so much. There some great moments between Laney and Hunter.
- Anthony and Sandy. Those two cracked me up.
- Laney’s family.
- Hunter’s mom.
- Hunter’s first chapter. Too much job detail for my liking. That added to his gruff personality made a bad first impression.
- Hunter’s co-workers. They just seemed like additions to the story I didn’t really need.
- Hunter’s obsession with Laney’s security. It was a little too crazy?
- The epilogue. I didn’t like what Hunter did at the time he did it. I thought it was rude.
- Hunter’s mom in the second epilogue.
Here’s the thing. I feel like I enjoyed this book more than my rating shows. Hunter and Laney were amazing together. I loved their relationship. It was just all of the other stuff I didn’t like. I didn’t like the beginning or the end of the book. I didn’t need all the stuff and people with Hunter’s work. For some reason, those things stick out in my mind more than what I did like after finishing the book. I wish it wasn’t that way, but it is. I would still recommend this book because that middle was great.
