Blog Tour and Book Review: The What If Guy by Lauren Blakely
Disclaimer: I was provided an advance reader copy by the author in exchange for my unbiased review and opinions.
This is my first time reading a Lauren Blakely book (Don't say it...it's not like I've been reading under a rock). I usually stay away from well-known authors, but I kept hearing great things, so there I went.
This is a somewhat shorter story about two people that meet (Logan and Bryn), feel a spark, get together for a short time liaison, only to discover that Logan is Bryn's new boss. It has been done a million times, with various degrees of success.
In this case, it is a light, fun, enjoyable read with a hot single dad, a woman that has certain preferences and is a total boss lady, and the guy that has finally met his match and can hit those sweet hot spots.
I believe Ms.Blakely is successful in reinventing the wheel here because there are so many fresh elements, the first one being their meet-cute ( the feminist twist to the story and the two cats are my favorites) as to make this shiny and new. The heat level is delish, the banter is on point, the What if Guy is a well crafted Mojito (with rum, motherfuckers, because this is a Cuban drink, coño!) on a perfect summer day!
May Bruce and Queen Latofu also live happily ever after! Five paws to The What If Guy!

Blurb: It sounded like the stuff of romantic legends -- that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more. I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me. Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize. Naturally, I did what any badass businesswoman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night. One night only -- that was the deal we made. But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another. Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company. And here’s the biggest rule of romantic legends -- no matter what, don’t bang your boss. Especially if you’re already falling for him.
