It is time to make a change. Time to find myself, even if it scares the hell out of me.
I, Makenzie Mayfair, am leaving my husband.
This is my chance to begin again, to rip my backbone out and yell, “I’ve found it.” It may take time, it may take new friends, a job and even a jerk of a boss who is annoyingly handsome, but I will get there.
I’m determined to be who I want to be, and plan to have a whole heap of fun along the way.
It’s been a while since I’ve read one of Lila Rose’s books, and up until this point, I’ve only read her MC romances – all of which I’ve loved. Making Changes is a huge departure from her biker series, and it was such a fantastic surprise to see this side of her writing abilities. I enjoyed this book so much!
Makenzie Mayfair is a curvy girl who was always comfortable in her skin, until six years with Robert, whom she met in college and then married, whittled away at her self-confidence. Wielding his words like a weapon, he dealt Makenzie frequent doses of verbal cruelty. An epiphany of epic proportions at the most inopportune moment helps Makenzie to realize what her fate in life would be if she didn’t make some big changes, and she didn’t waste a single second getting started on that journey. Fate can sometimes be a funny thing, though, but for Makenzie, it put exactly what she needed, exactly when she needed it, right there in her path.
Makenzie had tons of fire and spunk, and I absolutely loved all of her unfiltered reactions and comments. Making Changes wasn’t just about a woman finding herself and her voice again, it was also about a woman who was rebuilding her life and making room in it again for a career, for her family, for friends and for love. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments in this book that I often had tears streaming down my face as I read it. Makenzie and Grayson were perfect together, and their back-and-forth bantering coupled with their sizzling chemistry was romcom gold. Everything about this book was superb, from the inspirational plot to the sweet, sexy romance to the side characters along for this ride, but, it was Makenzie who really stole the show.
As hot as it was humorous, this book kept me smiling and happy from cover-to-cover. I love romantic comedies, and Making Changes is a truly great one that gets five smooches from me!
