Narrator: Alexander Cendese, Carly Robins
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.
After binging most of Aurora Rose Reynolds’ books, I think her Fluke My Life series is her best, and less problematic than her other series. Stumbling into Love, the second book in the series, while not quite as enjoyable as the first book, was still a fun read.
In Stumbling into Love, Mackenzie Reed is having a rough time in the love department. After crushing on someone for a long time, she’s trying to move on from him. But when she’s stood up for a date, she ends up meeting Wesley Porter. They are instantly attracted to each other, and end up hooking up. But then Mackenzie freaks out, because she isn’t one for one-night-stands, and books it out of Wesley’s apartment. But then they discover that Wesley is a detective and his partner is Mackenzie’s sister’s boyfriend. So now they can’t ignore each other or their attraction.
I was a little apprehensive going into this one, because in general I don’t love one-night-stand romances. But I actually quite liked this one. Mackenzie was easy to like. She’s a very relatable heroine. She works hard at her business, cares about her family, and has the same awkwardness and insecurities that many people have. She was really adorable, and although sometimes she would come up with these ridiculous things, she did make me laugh.
Wesley was pretty great, too. Again, I wasn’t sure if I would like him, but I so did. He’s dealing with some stuff that happened in his previous job, but he’s a good person. He really does blend into Mackenzie’s over the top family, and I loved that! Wesley is just a nice guy, and I am so here for that.
Wesley and Mackenzie were great together, and I loved seeing the figure things out. They were a little stupid when it came to safe sex, but it wasn’t a complete deal breaker for me. I also loved seeing more of the Reed family, and more than anything I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book about younger sister Libby!
Overall, Stumbling into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds was a pleasant surprise. If you like romantic comedy romances, you might enjoy this series.
