From the New York Times bestselling author of Fooling Around comes a steamy novel about a pampered princess who’s starting over—and the hot guy next door who knows exactly how to melt that tiara right off.
Alison Davies used to just be a trophy wife. Now she’s just flat broke. Thanks to an ironclad prenup, she’s worse off than she was before the day she rushed down the aisle with a wealthy jerk eight years ago. After her steep fall from riches to rags, Alison refuses to shackle herself to any man who treats her like a possession—no matter how good he looks in a pair of well-worn jeans, or how his muscles ripple while he’s carrying her couch.
Underneath his rugged exterior, Rob West is a gentleman. So when he sees his beautiful new neighbor moving in, he’s going to help her out no matter how loudly she protests. In fact, Alison’s determination to go it alone just strengthens his resolve—and his desire to find out what makes her tick. But after one spur-of-the-moment tumble in the sheets, it’s clear that their connection goes way deeper. And that Rob won’t be happy until Alison surrenders to the passion they share.

Alison goes from trophy wife with husband’s money to single with no money. She has a sweetness which lies underneath, but even though she chose to give up being rich she still seemed entirely too snobbish for me. She eventually tries, however, I never did feel drawn to her character.
Rob had two failed marriages and one of his exes still likes to cling onto him for things. He has red flag plastered all over him, and yet he’s sweet and caring and comes up with the most unusual ways to get Alison to let him into her life. From notes to birthday presents he has the how-to manual on how to win the girl covered, but when it comes to his own emotional issues…he needs some major help.
In Trophy Wife two wayward hearts learn to trust themselves enough to lean on someone they love. For love isn’t about taking care of yourself, it’s about being there when the one you love needs you because they can’t always do everything themselves, even when they want to.
My Favorite Moments are the notes Rob leaves Alison every day. One can only hope to find that kinds of romance their lives.
