Book Summary:

In Happily Inc, love means never having to say “I do”…
Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.
After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.
Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?

Friends-with-benefits that always means more in the world of romance. Why must I love this trope so much? The whole “let’s have sex and if it gets to be too much we walk away...” bit is my favorite line of the whole book.  It rarely ever stays “just sex”! At least in romancelandia. In real life...I’m sure F buddies work just fine.

“So just you and me, for as long as it’s good for us, then when it’s over, we walk away. No regrets, no bad breakup.”

Heh. Famous last words, anyone? Jasper and Renee are completely and utterly sexy from the moment they officially met. The chemistry is out of this world hot and as a reader, I could totally see what they couldn’t. Falling in love! But we have some stubborn characters. What can we do with that, yeah?

Jasper and Renee would like to convince themselves that their “relationship” is just one based on sex and friendship. They both have demons that will never allow them to have more.

Renee is a wedding planner and besides her love life; she’s well put together. Jasper is a suspense novelist that needs help writing in a love interest for his series closer. What better way to do that then ask for help from his buddy Renee?

Meant to Be Yours is one of my favorite types of romance. I felt the love, angst, and the easy way of watching two characters fall in love. It was beautiful. Jasper has made his way onto my lust of yummy book boyfriends! There’s nothing I love more than a man who treats women right.
