You can definitely see there is chemistry between them, but will either of them act on it. There were quite a number of twists and turns in Easy to Love You. I think Megan knocked the ball out of the park with Easy to Love You.
I felt as though the story flowed effortlessly and I was captivated from start to finish. I am looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for Mason and Hailey. Oh boy, I already know I will have whiplash from these two I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Hunter and MacKenzie have finally overcome the initial obstacles involved in their getting together, but now we see several other challenges thrown their way and they will continue to be tested to see if their relationship can withstand a variety of revelati This second book in the Love series picks up right where Trying Not To Love You leaves off. Hunter and MacKenzie have finally overcome the initial obstacles involved in their getting together, but now we see several other challenges thrown their way and they will continue to be tested to see if their relationship can withstand a variety of revelations and catastrophes.
I think what I like best about this series are the strong friendship and family bonds that flow throughout all the main characters in this book. No matter what, it is clear just how much everyone cares about each other even though everyone has complications in their relationships. There is a mysterious element to this book and some of the information revealed brings up a whole lot of questions that we the reader are now left to wonder about and wait for answers to.
We learn a little about Hunter's traumatic past and some crazy new family connections that may have lasting repercussions in his relationship with MacKenzie. We also learn some really unexpected information about MacKenzie's family that will likely have an impact on future books in the series. I struggled with just how many secrets were kept from MacKenzie by virtually every character in the book in the name of protecting her.
It started feeling a little ridiculous that multiple secrets were continuing to being kept even as MacKenzie made everyone aware that she knew information was being kept from her, and was upset that she was the only one left in the dark. Based on what these secrets were, the reasoning behind keeping those bits of information from her never made much sense to me. Hunter and MacKenzie's connection when things are going smoothly between them continues to be very strong and very hot.
I kept hoping that they would be able to keep their relationship going since they so clearly care about one another. I also enjoyed getting a couple little bits from Hailey and Mason's perspective. Even though I often wanted to throttle Mason, I am hopeful that he and Hailey will be able to make their relationship work.
There are a lot of loose ends left at the end of this book. I'm hoping that in addition to wrapping up the immediate issues, we might get to know more about Jaylinn and Cooper in future installments.
I would recommend this series since the characters are enjoyable and the story has gone in a couple directions I didn't expect. Some of the dialogue is a little choppy, and something has kept me from feeling like I'm fully engrossed in the story to the extent that I feel like I'm experiencing what the characters are going through.
Overall though, I'm curious to see where things go and will likely continue reading the next books in the series. Dec 15, Fanny rated it it was ok. Reconozco que este libro no me parecio tan simple como el anterior pero aun aun asi no creo que lea las historias de los demas personajes, y tampoco es una historia que le recomendaria a nadie, hubo ocasiones en las que me pregunte si estaba leyendo un libro New Adult o viendo una telenovela de Televisa.
Algo que me quedo aun mas claro despues de terminar la lectura es mi odio absoluto a MacKenzie, nunca la comprendere ni me gustara su personaje, creo que es una de las protagonistas que mas he odiado en toda mi vida como lectora, si la tuviera delante le daria una cachetada o varias por ser tan infantil, dramatica e insoportable.
Esta segunda parte es igual de sosa y simple que la anterior, sigue siendo otro libro que no es indispensable leer, no te pierdes nada al saltarte este libro asi tendras mas tiempo para leer libros que valgan la pena. Aug 05, Ashley rated it it was ok. I cannot get over how disappointed I was in this book. I bought the first one awhile ago, and after reading the reviews, decided to wait for Book 2's release to read them because of the cliffhanger. I wasn't totally impressed with the first book, but since I had already purchased Book 2, I figured I'd give it a try.
Needless to say, I will not be continuing this series. This book was so out of reality and weird that I actually scoffed halfway through. Between the FBI, bank robber dad, and psychoti I cannot get over how disappointed I was in this book. Between the FBI, bank robber dad, and psychotic sister, this book was in no way realistic.
I still do not comprehend how it got such good reviews. On the upside, the proofreading was MUCH better this time around. Not perfect, but not as distracting as the first book. I cannot honestly recommend this book to someone, but it may just be me that didn't like it based on other reviews.
Check it out and decide for yourself. Dec 13, Desi rated it did not like it Shelves: No lo pude terminar Jun 09, Joyce rated it it was amazing. I read this book! I love the story esp.

Looking forward to book 3! Either way, I am hoping it comes out soon: Jul 07, Hillary rated it it was amazing. When is this book going to be out? Aug 05, Jennifer Wolfel rated it it was amazing.
I think a more apt title for this book is Easy to love Hunter. I have to say after the first book I was pretty smitten with Hunter and well after the 2nd let's just say head over heels didn't quite cut it. So when we left off in book one with a pretty BIG cliffy, MacKenzie better knows as CC to her family and friends, was apparently loosing her life. After a horrific car accident she is fighting for her life. Not only was she fighting for her life but for the life of her unborn child.
I wasn't s I think a more apt title for this book is Easy to love Hunter. I wasn't sure what would happen in this book but I couldn't wait to devour it. I stayed up pretty much most of the night to finish it and it was worth every bit of lost sleep. As much as this story continued to be about Hunter and CC, we still had all the familiar characters present and pretty prominent in this book.
One thing that I love about these books is that as a family they are close and it shows how much they love and support each other. So when CC wakes up she is disoriented and doesn't remember much, but it does all come rushing back to her and she hides something from Hunter about the accident and what she remembers. I really felt bad for her she was having a bit of a struggle adjusting and their was this crazy pesky nurse that seemed to be in the way and making her crazy at times.
Yeah that's a twisted little secret part of the story. I won't give you details but when you find out who this woman really is you might want to choke someone As the story moves along we find out a lot more about Hunter's past and a person that reappears and is not welcome, brings new stress to their already stressful situation.
Hunter as always will go to any length to protect his family and that doesn't just me CC and his child, his mom and sister as well.
Have I mentioned how much I love Hunter. He is strong, supportive and so understanding of CC when she comes home from the hospital.
And they both adjust really well to parenthood, which for a young couple isn't easy to do but with the love of their friends and family they are able to overcome just about any situation. Including the accident that almost stole CC and their child away. My heart broke for Hunter a lot during this book.
He was truly stressed and made some not so great decisions, but he truly was doing what he thought was best. Though it wasn't perceived that way at all. There were some unbelievable twists in this story that I never saw coming. Did that really just happen!
Yeah there are quiet a few of those moments that will leave you questioning things Don't worry you'll get all the answers by the end of the book There were some heartbreaking moments that made me ugly cry and made my heart hurt.
I wanted nothing more then to see these two live happily ever after, with all that they already had gone through it was hard to read the trials that they would still face I love how believable the story is and that I can really see most of it happening in life.
I have the line from a song in my head from Aerosmith. Their story isn't about the destination at all it's about the Journey and all the mistakes you make along the way help you become a stronger person and make you grow and realized what you have sometimes is worth all the pain it took to get there. You will not be disappointed in this sequel.
Megan did a fantastic job weaving the story and intricate plot line. There were a lot of things to work through in this book. At the end I felt like CC and Hunter could finally put the past where it belonged and move toward a future hopefully filled with a lot less drama After reading the last few paragraphs, that's doubtful This should be one crazy wedding with her brother now on her hit list I can't wait to see where this family leads us next!
I give Megan 5 Stars for this fantastic sequel.
Easy to Love You
I couldn't have asked for more of out this book Well maybe I could have but because some books you just never want to see end I think you will truly Enjoy this book and the series if you haven't read them yet! Aug 02, Reading is my Time Out rated it it was amazing. Oh my goodness!!! If you thought Trying Not to Love You was awesome I laughed, cried, yelled, and wanted to punch someone AKA Brittany We are allowed deeper into Hunter and Kenzie's life, b Oh my goodness!!!
We are allowed deeper into Hunter and Kenzie's life, but with some major obstacles happening in between them and everyone else. Secrets are exposed that threaten to destroy the relationships of the people we adore! I loved that we were also able to get to know Hailey and the Cahill brothers even more and I am dying to know what happens with Hailey and Mason. I left off reading this book so entirely pissed at him that it will take a miracle for him to win me back!!
I love that guy! He really steps up to being a Daddy and makes me fall even harder for him. He oozes sex, charisma, and sensitivity that I would fight for him myself! There were parts where I thought Kenzie was being an idiot, but then I would think about it from her stand point and totally agree with her. Their family dynamics are so adorable and intriguing, that you can't help but feel like you are part of it yourself.
I would love to go on and on about Easy To Love You, but I will not give any spoilers seeing as how I think everyone needs to read this book like 10 minutes ago!! I easily give ETLY 5 stars on the knock my socks off scale If my scale went higher, I would bump that baby up to that number!

Jun 12, Mariah rated it did not like it. I truly wanted to like this book. The plot sounded really good and I think that a lot more could have been done with it. But honestly i couldn't even finish it. I am in shock at the high ratings and they were misleading. First of all, I didn't like or relate to any of the characters. Every single one was shallow and one demential. Every conversation they have was just so unrealistic and awkward.
Authors, contractions are OKAY!
I promise! My god it was so hard to read with the "I am" and "do not" A I truly wanted to like this book. My god it was so hard to read with the "I am" and "do not" Also, the main character pissed me off. She was just so dumb. Like honestly how could she not know her boyfriend was cheating on her. Also, the whole idea that she wouldn't have sex with him because that would be "whoring herself out", yet its aye okay to suck his dick in public.
Yeah okay Couldn't stand her best friend either.
Her only purpose was to be the slut. She loved her brother yet she continued to freely whore around. I don't normally judge in that aspect but it just didn't make any damned sense.
And her brothers were so unrealistic. No brothers are that creepily interested in your life while being hypocritical! Honestly, how are you going to tell your sister that she can't date your best friend when you're fucking her's, and the other brother is with his sister but thats okay too?
Yeah, I didn't think so either. All in all, the declarations of love happened to fast to be realistic, were cheesy, and awkward. The characters constantly contradicted themselves and were one demential.
All they cared about way getting laid, partying, and looking hot. I cant tell you what happened at the end because i couldn't bring myself to finish the book. I just can't get past writing i don't enjoy. Needless to say i will not be reading the sequel. View all 4 comments. That was amazing!
I am still in shock from that ending!! Sweet baby Jesus that ending!!! I loved everything about the book. The plot was great, the characters were stinkin' awesome, and the romance was sexy and steamy. So this is the short version. But it will also be up on my blog later! So yeah! I fell in love with ALL the characters. Every single last one of one of them.
I felt so many emotions and I couldn't pu That was amazing! I felt so many emotions and I couldn't put the book down. I just couldn't. It was that good. Go ahead and do yourself a favor and one click the book. You won't regret it. View 2 comments. Nov 11, Kat rated it it was ok. Y, oh no, espera, si En serio, la leen, y encima es que leemos su maldito POV y es como: Deteste completamente el libro.
Y eso que he sido buena y le he dado dos estrellas Mar 08, Laura's Book Addiction rated it it was amazing Shelves: Soooo freaking awesome. But that ending I need book 2 NOW please. May 15, Tray rated it really liked it. It's the story of what happens when you fall in love with the boy next door or across the street. In Mackenzie Cahill's life, nothing happens. Because that boy is Hunter McCormick, her twin brothers' best friend.
Kenzie fell for Hunter the first time she saw him.
Trying Not to Love You
She was ten and came home from school to find a strange boy sitting at the kitchen table with her brothers, Cooper and Mason. The new boy was Hunter, and his family had just moved in across the street.
And Kenzie thought he was the most beautiful boy she had ever seen. Kenzie was the baby in the family, the only girl with three older brothers.
Jackson was the oldest and the twins, Cooper and Mason, were three years older than Mackenzie. Their dad always stressed to the boys that it was their job to keep their baby sister safe, and the boys took their job seriously. Hunter and Kenzie's families were close.
They took vacations together every summer. They spent every holiday together. Even worse, Hunter and the twins were inseparable, so he practically lived at the Cahill house. Kenzie had watched Hunter date his way through high school, silently wishing it was her on his arm.
But that would never happen, because her brothers would kill him. Not that he thought of her that way. To Hunter, she would always be CC, his nickname for her. The little sister of his best friends. Hunter McCormick had a problem. A big one. He wanted his best friends' little sister. Hunter had watched Kenzie grow from a little girl to beautiful woman with a rocking body.
Attending college hours away from her was probably the only thing saving him from her brothers' fists. Out of sight, out of mind. The only problem was, Mackenzie and her best friend, Hailey, were now freshmen at the same college Hunter attended.
Mason and Cooper trusted Hunter to watch out for her and keep her safe. Little did they know, he was the last person they should have entrusted her with. I really, really liked this book. I liked how Megan started with the characters as children and progressed to young adulthood. I felt like I really knew them and their history. I also liked that I could feel the sexual tension between Hunter and Kenzie build the older they got.
The more they tried to deny it, the stronger the urge became. I also liked that it wasn't one of those books where the two just decided to admit their feelings and everything was rainbows and sunshine. TNTLY is definitely not a story with smooth sailing. Hunter and Kenzie face all kinds of problems besides the attack dogs called her brothers. Kenzie's longtime boyfriend Dominic is one of those problems. Be prepared to mentally want to slap sense into her where Dominic is concerned.
I know I certainly wanted to! Then there's Mason. He is the brother most protective of Mackenzie. No one is good enough, especially not Hunter. I also mentally punched him in the throat a few times.
You'll understand when you realize the huge double standard Mason has. Actually, both Mason and his twin Cooper have the old "do as I say, not as I do" mentality when it comes to their baby sister.
Frustrated is not a strong enough word for how I felt every time Kenzie folded to their demands without argument. I thought that once all of the roadblocks were out of the way, Hunter and Mackenzie would just sail off to their HEA.
That didn't happen. In fact, I think my message to Megan was "Noooo I sort of, kinda want to choke you right now! You will love all of the supporting characters, including Hailey, Kenzie's best friend, Kenzie's parents, and Kenzie's soon to be sister in law, Chloe. How the whole family and their friends interact with each other is so real and almost always hilarious.
Oh and it's definitely got some steam for you, too! View 1 comment. May 13, Amanda rated it did not like it Shelves: While I loved the song, I can't say the same for the book.
Buy for others
The premise to Trying Not To Love You sounded good and I hadn't read any other book really containing very overprotective brothers. This is what the whole book is kind of based on, MacKenzie's brothers being overprotective of her.
And they are. Oh my, are they ever. Jackson, Mason and Cooper took being protective to a whole new level. It comes a point when it gets creepy. MacKenzie, or Kenzie, can barely do a thing without them knowing about it.
She can barely date without her brothers harassing the guy. What ticked me off most is the violence the brothers use. We're told about the first guy Kenzie dated, Ryan, in seventh grade. When they broke up, which only made Kenzie cry, the brothers went and gave the kid two black eyes and a broken nose. This isn't the only violence exerted in the book. Yet, no one files any lawsuit over these occasions. I can't even begin on how much this ticked me off.
And before someone tells me this is normal behavior, I am aware of how much violence there is in the world and that there are overprotective brothers out there.
But I know a girl, the youngest of a bunch of her and three brothers where one of the guy can be hotheaded. And she'd never put up with the shit Kenzie's brothers pull on her. Her brothers certainly wouldn't go so far to beat someone up for the shit the brothers did in this book.
I can overlook the part where they are being this insanely overprotective if not for how big of hypocrites they are. One of them is dating Hunter's sister.
Hunter is the best friend of the brothers and he's in love with Kenzie and she loves him. Another is dating Kenzie's best friend. So in this context, I can't overlook the brothers. Let's move on to the main characters, Kenzie and Hunter.
I liked neither of them but let's start with Kenzie. I didn't like her due to how shallow she is and, well, one dimensioned. I couldn't get over how she put Dominic, the guy she's dating in the beginning of the book, in the blind spot for so long. Everything he did should've risen red flags. Pretty much everything he did pointed to him cheating on her.
And this is what happened in the first third of the book or so. And yet, when her brothers and her best friend say they don't like him she still looks past Dominic's behavior. How many signs do you need Kenzie? We're supposed to love him because he's so good and nice and whatever. But I didn't like him.
He never stands up for him and Kenzie to her brothers until the very end of the book. By then I already disliked him. I actually started to dislike him when they were driving to college in the beginning of the book. Then they play a game where they have to answer ten questions each. In the game, Hunter is very open about how she'd date Kenzie and so on.
This put me off, because he knows she has feelings for him and yet he won't act on his own feelings. It felt like he just wanted to keep her on the hook and not let her move on.
Not cool. Let the girl go unless you plan on doing anything with her. Sorry Hunter, you didn't do it for me. I can never stand people saying these things about a girl.
Sure, they call a girl skank for sleeping with Kenzie's best friend's boyfriend. But how do we know this girl knew he had a girlfriend? Then it's immediately the girl who's the bad person. The usage of these words always makes me angry because I know what it's like to be called these words.
I haven't been called it personally but I have friends who's been called these names completely uncalled for and it's not okay on any level. Next off to the writing. I understand this is the author's style but it didn't sit well with me. As many others have pointed out, contractions are okay to use! Most people in college don't talk like that.
The rest of the writing didn't appeal to me either. This is just my own opinion and I understand it can appeal to other people. But the writing isn't a masterpiece. Even some of the old classic writers such as Shakespeare could admit not all of their works were masterpieces either.
Trying Not To Love You isn't a masterpiece either. I read this book and hoped for more flow in the paragraphs, but in my head I kept hearing this robot tell me the words. The plot and pacing didn't do much for me either.
I like my books to have some more plot except the love story. Trying Not To Love You didn't give me much except the love story. I also felt there to be a lot of lacking in backgrounds on the characters. I didn't really feel the romance between either Kenzie and Dominic or her and Hunter. The pacing was slow in the first half of the book where Kenzie goes on about her and Dominic's relationship which I'd rather read less about.
It didn't bring that much to the story to drag it out as long as it did. Also, from time to time, the descriptions either got too detailed or lacked in details. For example, there is a long paragraph in the book where we're told what everyone get on Christmas that didn't contribute a single thing to the story.
However, I see how this can appeal to other people but I wouldn't go so far to recommend it. This book is more of a 1. May 22, Jacqueline's Reads marked it as did-not-finish. First off, I love her writing style, it's easy going, has nice flow and I love the cover very romantic. I label it as "did not finish", BUT I fully intend to finish. I do not like love triangles and although it's not a full love triangle book, it drives me nuts when girls stay with a guy because the guy she actually wants isn't an option.
Do not settle ladies not in books and not in real life. 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?
