Synopsis: Speech teacher and successful matchmaker Mackenzie Simms decides to find a woman for her friend, handsome newspaper tycoon Rick Duffy. Though they’ve been each other’s go-to dates for the past month, Mac and Rick couldn’t be more different: she is outspoken, sarcastic, and completely loathes his privileged lifestyle. He’s laid-back, unassuming, and seems comfortable at an upper-class charity function. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?
Rick knows he and the opinionated-though-adorable Mackenzie are better off as friends, so he agrees to the double-date getaway Mac plans at his family cabin. But seeing Mac cuddle up with her “friendly” date rankles Rick beyond reason, and Mac regrets her matchmaking scheme the minute she sees the way her beauty-queen cousin looks at Rick. Can Mac ‘fess up to what’s really in her heart, when speaking her mind puts everything at risk?
Thoughts: Speaking of Love is one of those stories that.you immediately love and show you that sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of you. Plus how can you not love a completely endearing romance with a happily ever after?
I love how there’s much more than just sex for Rick and Mac. They each are fighting for something other than each other. Both of them have issues that they are working through. But, overall they both just need each other. Once we got to “weekend getaway”, I just loved how the romance hit Rick and Mackenzie like a freight train. They’re so comfortable with each other and they have perfect banner with one another. Plus, with the characters I love how Ophelia created “competition” but it was the type of competition that you could see from the beginning stood no chance, and I loved that, that there was no confusion in the love. Plus, Rick is pretty sexy.
Overall, Entangled put out another Bliss beauty. Speaking Of Love is one of those stories where you will be rooting for the characters until the end. It’s a story where there isn’t much darkness, where it doesn’t revolve around sex, but is your chick-flick love story where there are two people who are just meant to be together. Loved it!
