Book Review: Trying Not to Love You

Trying Not to Love You by Megan Smith: 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?

TeriLyn's thoughts: Kenzie pissed me off the entire first half of the book. She was back and forth. You could tell she was smarter than what she was portraying during her relationship with her first boyfriend. At first I thought her love for Hunter could be misinterpreted as a young crush or infatuation, but then it was not like that at all. Her feelings were genuine for Hunter and it was clearly so much more. Since she was so protected by her older brothers, Hunter could not betray them. Their relationship when she went off to college was nice. They really got to explore their friendship and the feelings they had for each other. No matter what Hunter and Kenzie had a strong friendship above all else and Hunter knew he couldn’t hurt her. They knew each other. I loved Hunter throughout the whole book. He was cute, charming, and a lovable ass. He knew how to goad her and make her laugh. Their banter and friendship was truly fun. I adored the second half of the book so much. They took a leap together and knew they could get through it if they remained a united front. ....then a damn cliffhanger! The second book needs to come quick.
