Overview MacKenzie Cahill has dealt with overbearing and overprotective brothers her entire life, making it near impossible to enjoy her teenage years. Having a boyfriend was practically impossible until she met a guy that wasn't afraid to
stand up to them - Dominic. He was sweet, thoughtful, and everything MacKenzie ever wanted in a man.
But when they go away to college at Old Dominion University, MacKenzie sees a whole new side of Dominic and begins to wonder if he really is different from every other guy.
Her world is turned upside down after a party, and her brothers' best friend Hunter is the one there to offer her a shoulder to cry on. The chemistry between them is electric, and feelings for each other that have been hidden for years are finally voiced.
Is Hunter willing to be disloyal to his best friends in order to be with the one girl he's always secretly wanted?
Reviews That was amazing!
I am still in shock from that ending!! Sweet baby Jesus that ending...!!!
I loved everything about the book. Everything. The plot was great, the characters were stinkin' awesome, and the romance was sexy and steamy.
I wrote a LONG review on Goodreads earlier and deleted it by accident:( So this is the short version. But it will also be up on my blog later! So yeah!
I fell in love with ALL the characters. Every single last one of one of them. I felt so many emotions and I couldn't put the book down. I just couldn't. It was that good.
Go ahead and do yourself a favor and one click the book. You won't regret it.
rying Not To Love You is officially being added to my favorites of 2013. Megan Smith does an amazing job at captivating you with this story. She makes you feel a connection with ALL of the characters in this book and not just the main characters.
This is a story of true love, passion, resistance. Trying to fight what your heart is telling you that you need. This is a story about Mackenzie Cahill and Hunter McCormick. Kenzie has been in love with Hunter since she was 10 years old but he's her twin brothers, Mason and Copper, best friend. Hunter tries to stay away as the years go on. When he goes off to College, Kenzie knows that she needs to stop hoping for something that will never happen so she starts dating Dominic.
When its time for her to go off to college all is good until tragedy strikes. Hunter is there to pick her up when she needs it most. They can't fight their attraction for each other anymore but Hunter doesn't want to ruin his friend with his best friends either.
This Story is “OH MY FUCKING GADS!” amazing! The emotion is raw and angsty. It will have you in tears. And it will make you laugh. 5 Stars from me! Trying Not to Love you is definitely one of my favorite books of 2013, it made me laugh and absolutely sob my heart out. This book is captivating from the first sentence, the relationship between Hunter and Kenzie or CC as he calls her is intense, passionate and sweet. The characters in the book are so well developed that they feel like friends and family, I was brought into their family by Megan's amazing writing skills. Hunter and Kenzie have so much love, angst to work through due to her brothers refusal to accept them together, it is hard not to feel for them, I just wanted them to get their happily ever after. The ending well lets just say that was my 2 hour sob fest and a message to the author! Prepare to swoon!
Hmm…what do you do when you have three overly protective older brothers? Not a whole lot…lol. At ten years old, MacKenzie Cahill sets her sights on a stunningly handsome boy, Hunter. The problem? He is best friends with her brothers. At the tender age of 13, during a game of Truth or Dare, Hunter
becomes her first kiss…and then is sternly warned by her brothers that he’d better NEVER do that again! Secretly, she longs for him as she goes through her teen years, but when she lets him know she’s romantically interested, he turns her down and becomes (not unlike her brothers) her protector. In the end of her high school years, she meets Dominic; a boy unafraid to stand up to her protectors. She thinks he’s perfect…or is he?
I’m not going to blow the rest of the review with spoilers (don’t like it when people do that!). Let me simply say Trying Not To Love You is a wonderful, romantic ride. Megan Smith has done a fabulous job for her debut novel, and I know she will have a long line of eager readers waiting for her future releases. Yes, there is a cliffhanger at the end of Trying Not To Love You, but isn’t that what everyone secretly loves? You become invested in the characters and you WANT the story to continue! Grab a copy and prepare to swoon over handsome, hot, muscled, tatted-up, and protective Hunter (he’d certainly have no trouble sweeping me off my feet!!). Before I start I have to say I can not wait for fall 2013! Easy to love you book #2 is on my must read list! Hunter and Kenzie, well what a connection. I love the way it dives into the past and explains the past of these characters. Kenzie is from a family with three very over protected brothers. There brothers friend Hunter has almost grown up with these and he looks at them as brothers. Kenzie has feelings for Hunter but he always pushes her back - because of Mason, Jackson and Cooper (the big protected brothers). Kenzie moves on with Dominic. After a year with Dominic, Kenzie moves to the same college he attends. Things start to go wrong, Kenzie can sense something is of and who does she turn to? Hunter. Finally finding out Dominics secret he and Kenzie split up. Now single, Kenzie is left fighting her feelings for Hunter as they remained very close friends. Hunter is resilient to Kenzie because of the brothers, who he also classes as his brothers. Finally after giving into there feelings for each other, they get together. Of course it's not easy. Mason takes it extremely hard. Finally getting everything on track...... Something terrible from her past (more Dominics past) comes and turns everyones world upside down! What happens next?.......... We don't know the book ends. *sigh* roll on Fall 2013.
A very well earned 5* Ok let's see this book is really sweet. Hunter is really amazing just wish he would have grown a pair sooner. So Kenzie didn't have to be with the prick of the year.
Let's being with the bad people lol I usually do and I have to keep PC or amazon won't post.
Dominic: I really dont like you even in the end. You jerks never realize what you have until its to late. Kenzie deserved way better than you. Your are getting what you deserve having to deal with a crazy b**ch like Brittnay I will commend you a little just a little for apologizing and warning her to stay away from Brittnay. Brittnay :you are all kinds of fu**ing crazy what the hell Is wrong with crazy females in these books geeze take a Xanax or something . What you did is just unforgivable. Oh yea Dominic I completely blame you for what has happened to Kenzie.
Hunter: where do I begin your are a sweet guy but should have manned up a long time ago especially after you knew how she felt about you. Your loyalties are to follow your heart. Not to her brothers. You came around when she needed you most. You messed up once and almost lost her don't do it again. You guys are amazing together she deserves the world and I think you are the man for the job. I hope and pray all works out in next book I need a HEA .
Kenzie: your the typical down home good girl. You deserve the world. Sucks you had have your heart broken by at least you found your forever thru all the mess. I was extremely scared reading that accident scene :( and that crazy chick following you and hurting you. I will be on edge till next book I really need a HEA.
As for the rest of the characters. Jackson,Cooper an Mason you are the best big brothers anyone could ever have. Kenzie is very luck to have you. I love you all and your love for your family is amazing. Hailey honey get it together I'm looking forward to yours and Mason's story to continue in the next book. (Fingers crossed) or your own book ;)
And I will end it with this WTF KIND OF ENDING WAS THAT. AAAAAAHHHHH I need next book soon. engaged from the very beginning till the very end leaving you wondering, “what the f***!"
MacKenzie (Kenzie) was only 10 when she walked into her kitchen and first laid eyes on 13 year old Hunter. Just looking at those blue eyes set the butterflies in her stomach to go off, and that’s when she knew; she was in for it.
"I would remember that kiss always, my first kiss. It might not have meant anything to Hunter, but it meant the world to me.' ~ Kenzie
Kenzie had always grown up with three VERY over protective brothers. With Hunter being Mason and Cooper’s best friend (Kenzie’s older twin brothers) she now has an extra protector watching out for her. However unlike her brothers who were overbearing pricks most of the time, Hunter was always more attentive to her feelings and always made sure she was okay first before he took on any form of action. She knew she felt a connection to him from the beginning. His constant flirting with her did not make matters with her to be any easier. She wanted to be with him, but he was the one she could not have. He never showed any interest in her, or so she thought.
“You don’t need that shit. You’re beautiful just the way you are.” ~ Hunter
She thought he was good looking growing up, but seeing him home during summer break from college, he was sexier than ever. He was taller, his muscles were bigger, his hair was longer, and damn those tattoos. She wanted him, and she wanted him bad, more now than she had ever had. Hunter wanted her just as bad, but he just couldn’t do it, he chose her brothers over her and that damn well broke her heart.
She knew she couldn’t be with Hunter, so she moved on by dating Dominic. She knew in time she would become happy. Her brothers or Hunter were not happy with the idea, but Dominic wouldn’t let them get in the way of their relationship and she admired him for standing up to them. Hunter would always find a way
to touch Kenzie, flirt with her, or whisper things in her ear when no one was aware. That confused that crap out of her. Did Hunter want Kenzie? Was this all just a game to him?
I absolutely loved the family dynamic and support that the Cahill family gave to one another. Aside from Hunter they also welcomed into their family with open arms, her best friend Hailey, Jaylinn (Hunter’s sister), Hunter’s mom, and Chloe who is Jackson’s fiancé (Kenzie’s oldest brother). The boys are very protective over the girls and I don’t mean just Kenzie, I mean all three of them. You mess with any of them, you will have not one but all four of those guys on your ass! But without a doubt you can sense the absolute love pouring out from one another. No matter what happened, that family stuck together.
Let me just say, the car ride to school with Kenzie, Hailey and Hunter playing Hot Seat was hysterical; I could not stop laughing! I would absolutely love a friend like Hailey around in my daily life. She has no type of filter whatsoever and will tell you like it is; she keeps it completely real with you. There is no sugar coating anything when she is around. That’s one of the things I loved about her. I think that balanced out her relationship with Kenzie perfectly.
Kenzie's relationship with Dominic started to change and Kenzie was becoming naïve and oblivious to what was happening infront of her. Instead, she made a bunch of excuses and tried to fix it. Every one saw it but her, and they were trying their best to protect her from getting hurt. To make matters worse, Hunter was continuing to torment her with his crazy flirting, still confusing the crap out of her. Dominic came off as a complete dick and I hated the idea of him from the very beginning. But like all secrets, they will surface and the truth will finally reveal itself. She finally sees Dominic for who he truly is. And like always, her family is there to help her pick up the pieces of her broken heart. Hunter chooses to not leave her side.
“I’m done trying to stay away. I can’t do it anymore. I need you like my life depends on it.” ~ Hunter
Broken and feeling betrayed, Kenzie tries to focus on putting her life back together and get back on track. Hunter finally admits to everyone about his feelings for Kenzie and although they are not happy with it, he stands by her. Confused and lost, insecurities from the past have Kenzie wondering how long it
will be till Hunter leaves her too. He has always chosen her brothers and never her, so why should this time be any different?
Will Hunter be able to stand up to her brothers and choose Kenzie? Will Kenzie be able to put the past aside and let Hunter in? Will the Cahill brothers ease up and let Kenzie live her life? Will her family be just as supportive knowing she wants to be with Hunter? Will Kenzie and Hunter stop playing these games and finally see that they belong together?
It got really frustrating at times to read the push and pull relationship of Kenzie of Hunter. I really just wanted them to get it over with and just be together. Her brothers needed to get a grip and ease up on being so overbearing. Hunter was their best friend, so of course he would treat Kenzie with such respect. Kenzie was supportive with the big clusterfuck of relationships happening around her, all she wanted was that same support back. Getting towards the end of the book, Hunter really, really grew on me; the way that he took care of Kenzie and always put her first. I could never get tired of him. Not only did I fall for Hunter, but I fell in love with the entire family. I could however, do without that major cliffhanger at the end of the book! I canâ€™t wait to hear more of the story; I need to see what happens. Great job Megan!
I received an ARC from this author for my honest review.
