Playful Hearts is Blake's story. Blake and Mackenzie are HAWT! They were each determined to keep love out of their relationship, in spite of the chemistry between them. That always works, doesn't it? Yeah, right! In this case, it allowed them time to really get to know each other and for love to evolve slowly. To me, that is the best kind of love.
All the Riley siblings and their significant others are back, as well as Doreen. Family is an important part of this series. Another thing I really enjoy. Especially since the Riley siblings are all adopted and prove you don't have to be related by blood to be a real family.
There are a couple of things that left me unsatisfied with the story. One is the “drama” of Mackenzie breaking up with Blake. It wasn't needed. There was already plenty of drama. Plus, why would she believe what a stranger said? She thought the stranger was creepy and wished somebody would walk in, but then believes every lie she is told. Never bothers to talk to Blake. I don't care about her trust issues. That doesn't explain why she didn't at least tell Blake what she thought of him. My other concern is the ending left me feeling like I was cheated. I know the author can write the story any way she chooses. This is simply my opinion. There was no closure with the antagonist and I wish there had been.
Like I stated at the beginning, I urge you to read Playful Hearts. It is an enjoyable book and the journey to Blake and Mackenzie's HEA is an enjoyable trip.
Blake has now returned to Rocky Harbor, ready to lead a predictable life after having the opposite for so long. He's preparing to open a business with his brother, Colton, that will offer a gym and obstacle courses.
Mackenzie owns the local coffee shop and, as if that isn't hectic enough, also provides care for her mom as her dementia continually progresses.
Neither are looking for a relationship, but an arrangement as friends isn't off the table, or bed, or wall, or floor, or... But the more time they spend together, the deeper the connection grows, as do their feelings for one another, and it isn't long before this no-strings agreement starts becoming so much more, surprising both of them.
What happens when fun becomes so much more? How will the man that's made it his mission to avoid commitment react upon realizing he wants a future with Mackenzie? Does Mackenzie have room in her life for a relationship? Will she make the time knowing her heart is invested? When Blake's past resurfaces, potentially placing Mackenzie in danger, what will he do? Will he walk away, believing it's the best, and safest, option for Mackenzie? Will she fight for him, for them? Or has their time together run its course? Is there a HEA for Blake and Mackenzie? Can Blake ever break free of his history and look forward with Mackenzie?
One-click now and follow along as two people begin a relationship, of sorts, with one foundation in mind, then realize it's just the start of forever. Though it can be read as a standalone if needed, I highly recommend reading this series in order to allow for the complete dynamic of this wonderful family.
**I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.**
I haven't read the first book in this series (somehow I started at 2, but I fully intend to go back and read it), but so far this is my favorite. (I am pretty sure I thought that about each book in the series; it just keeps getting better!) I loved Blake's sense of humor and playfulness, and his kind heart. Mackenzie is strong, feisty, and sweet. I love her collection of curses that seem minor but the more you think about it, the worse it seems. I think my favorite is "may every sock you wear be slightly rotated, just enough for it to be uncomfortable".
Blake and Mackenzie try to pretend their relationship is only sex, but from the outside it is easy to see their connection develop. I liked how both owned their mistakes when they made them, even when it was a huge one. I definitely recommend this book!
This is a fun series and it's always fun to read about the Riley family. There are some serious moments such as Mackenzie dealing with her mother's increasing senility and Blake's dealing with his blood family (if you don't know, the Riley's were all adopted and come from some rough backgrounds though Doreen and her late husband brought them up right).
I really loved the last book and I enjoyed this one, too, but Blake is not my favorite brother. I wish he'd show his sensitive side a bit more instead of relying on constant flirting. Mackenzie is a great heroine; I liked her interactions with Blake's niece. A solid addition to a great series.
