Three years ago, Brynn Dalton made a rare error in judgment and had a one-night stand with the one man she swore would never get into her designer panties. Will Thatcher was exactly the type of sexy playboy that good girls like Brynn stayed away from. And when Will moved across the country just days after their fling, Brynn vowed to put him behind her, even as the memories haunt her.

Now Will Thatcher is back, and just in time to see Brynn's perfectly structured life begin to crumble. Her job is dull, her social life is tedious, and Brynn's perfect cardiologist boyfriend doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get to Tiffany & Co. More than ever, Brynn needs her childhood nemesis to keep his distance.

But Will isn't content to be Brynn's dirty little secret any longer. This time, he's out to show Brynn Dalton that the imperfect man might just be the best mistake of her life.

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

It is official… I am definitely hooked on Lauren’s books!

After being asked to join the tour – I read book one first, just to familiarize myself with the characters and Laruen’s writing. Even though this can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the first book, Only for You, before heading into Made for You. Lauren does an amazing job with character development, but I personally loved knowing a little bit about these characters, since they were introduced in Only for You. Overall though, I don’t think I would have enjoyed this less by ANY means.

Lauren’s book are filled with such entertaining – layered characters, delicious sexual tension and the ANGST! She is also not afraid to take the gloves off. There were times when I thought that these two really did despise each other, because some of the things they said were just awful.

For some reason, Will regresses back to middle-school mentality and is so immature when it comes to Brynn. He’s always had this feeling of rejection since their first encounter in high-school. Actually going as far as befriending Sophie (Brynn’s sister) to get to her. Brynn however, is so wrapped up in her own shit that she can see what is right in front of her, and that was beyond frustrating. In all honestly, Brynn was extremely difficult to like and relate to. She comes off as an uptight, snobby B – and for me, it was hard for her to redeem herself. Granted, she is this way for a reason – suffering in her early youth with her weight and looks. While I applaud her for changing her life, she is so focused on her plans, note books and perfect life that she can’t see beyond that.

Although I had a few issues with the characters individually, I loved their banter and relationship development. These two could not be more different – but they just work. Will brought Brynn out of her shell, introduced her to spontaneous and that living life outside a note-book is WORTH IT, that is doesn’t have to be neat and pretty and perfect.

I also really enjoyed the flash back scenes that we get into their past. They were great to get a better understanding of how their relationship has gotten to this point – even though we only get a few.

Overall – Although I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first book, I did adore it! I loved watching Bryann’s walls come down and finally admit her feelings for Will. And the ending was so sweet and perfect!
