Mackenzie Reed has officially been stood up. Not only has she wasted two years on Mr. So Not Interested but now she doesn’t even have pizza and the Mets to keep her company. Then he walks into her life—more than six feet of rugged, hot stranger. Maybe, just for tonight, Mac can pretend to be a girl she’s not. After all, she deserves a little no-strings fun…
As far as Wesley Porter is concerned, one night with Mackenzie isn’t nearly enough. She’s a mystery he wants to solve—if he can keep her from running for the door every time they touch. There’s obviously some serious chemistry between them, so why is she fighting it?
As one sexy hookup turns into another (and another), Wesley is determined to prove they were made for each other. But Mac has been hurt before, and she refuses to fall for this sexy, ridiculously perfect guy. In fact, she has every intention of fighting it…unless he can convince her otherwise.
I really don’t know how she does it! Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it again: after the Until series (which I devoured), I was already in love with Levi in Running Into Love. And now she gave us Wesley, Levi’s NYPD partner. We had already met the hot guy in the first part of the series Fluke My Life, when Fawn’s whole family went to Levi uninvited to celebrate Thanksgiving. During that dinner we could already read that Fawn’s sister Mackenzie (or Mac) had already met Wesley somewhere.
Stumbling Into Love starts with the story where Mac is stood up at a bar. She gets a bit tipsy and stumbles into Wesley. Being disappointed and a bit drunk, she decides to give up her ‘goody-shoes’ image and go with Wesley to have a one night stand. Hungover the next morning, she realizes she is not such a girl after all and she sneaks out of Wesley’s apartment. And realizing at home that she left her mobile at his place…
So unfortunately, Mac has to face the music and go back to Wesley. He, however, is not amused by her tactics, because he has decided he likes her very much. So the next encounter, they end up having sex. And the next, and the next…
Whereas Mac doesn’t understand how someone can be attracted to her, the sister with the baggy clothes without the make-up, and not to her sister Libby, the beautiful one on high heels and in fashionable outfits, Wesley doesn’t understand why she tries to keep him at a distance.
With her nosy family, the hilarious downstairs neighbour miss Ina, and of course her funny sisters Fawn and Libby, this read is heartwarming, cosy and cute.
So, eagerly awaiting part three. Which will be about the last single sister, Libby, I suppose.
Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
