BLOG TOUR: Review & Giveaway: 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?

Trying Not To Love You is a book about growing up, meeting your first love and tons of family drama!  And not particularly in that order either.  Kenzie is the youngest daughter in a family of all boys.  These boys do whatever they have to when it comes to protecting their baby sister and to the extreme! 

I really enjoyed reading about their family dynamics and all the different love interests but I got a little annoyed at how harsh Mason was!  No brother really acts that way?  Do they?  (no brother here to base this on, lol) 

For a lot of the story Kenzie was playing the part of naive college freshman.  I felt bad for her and hoped that her BFF Hailey would spell things out for her when it came to her asshat (their words) boyfriend Dominic. 

Hunter, the twin brother's best buddy and Kenzie's dream guy is hot and super sweet.  I love how he treated Kenzie from the begining.  He is a good mix of tough and sweet, more on the sweet side. 

This book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions and make you want to bitch slap Kenzie a couple of times, BUT it's definitely worth the read.  I have to tell you that the ending was shocking and left me saying WTF?!?!  I also wish that this book was longer.  There were parts that felt rushed and I would have loved a deeper look into them.  I am anxiously awaiting book 2 now!
