When the Wrong Guy is Oh-So-Right

Will Thatcher is exactly the type of sexy playboy good girls like Brynn have always avoided. And yet there was still something about him she just couldn't resist. When Will moved across the country three years ago, Brynn vowed it was time to put him behind her. She never thought Will might have other plans . . .

"he would hurt her and she had already hurt him ..."


Nothing makes me fall in love more than a Lauren Layne novel. After reading all there is to read by this author I imagined that I would find some fault or disappointment but happily for me once again I've been completely won over by an author that I can say with confidence is by far one of my all time favourites. Any time I hear of an up and coming release for Lauren Layne I'm always excited to see what this auth
4 Life Changing Stars.

Brynn has her life her planned out. Seriously, she has a whole bunch of lists about literally anything that her future can embrace. When something unexpected happens she realizes that maybe sheer perfection isn’t the best way to live and decides to take a break… for herself.
Helping her is Will, her sister-best friend whom she had an affair a few years ago… and the man that has absolutely anything in common with her, so it’s safe to say he has no place in her lists.

Will was a lovely book boyfriend. When he was happy I was happy. When his heart broke mine did too. As for Brynn she started off fine but as the story progressed I found her a snob, always thinking poor Will wasn't good enough for her.

Despite the frustrating heroine she sort of redeemed herself in the end, I did end the book feeling happy and it was just one of those romantic heart flutter books with great banter. I'm definitely still a LL fan!

The readers who used to read Only With You, the first book in The Best Mistake series, have already known that Will and Brynn obviously had a huge history together. Whatever you've been curious about them will be revealed in this book.

Will and Brynn first met in high school and he instantly fell in love with her. Will was a sophomore and Brynn was just a freshman. Both of them should be high school sweethearts but some misunderstanding turned them into enemies.

During Brynn’s childhood, boys were

IMAO, so bad it's good :D

Short review: I laughed at the book, not with the book thanks to the whole ridiculous rom-com tropes it had. But since this is a Lauren Layne book I also kinda liked it. Now, if you excuse me I'm gonna write a full review to poke fun at it ^_^

What the crap was this?!? At less than 15% I'm out and I am deeply grateful this isn't my first Lauren Layne because Will is a disgusting jerk and Brynn is an idiot and I'm glad I already know that Layne can do better. Will's version of "love" is a twisted, despicable, manipulative thing that cries out for therapy and a long talk about the benefits of not being a creepy snotbag. When I'm asking myself "what would someone who absolutely hated Brynn do?" and find the answer matches exactly with Wi ...more

Made for you by Lauren Layne took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting to LOVE it the way that I did. The story was sweet, heart tugging and left me feeling so fulfilled. The characters were easy to love, incredibly witty and captured me on the first page. Add in the seamless writing, a plot line that keeps you glued to your seat, and you have a FANTASTIC read. All in all it was a complete breath of fresh air that I didn't even know I needed.

Will and Brynn have pretty much hated each other since

Sophie couldn't have been more wrong about Brynn not making mistakes.
Because not so long ago, she'd made the most elementary of all mistakes.
And he was staring right at her.

Eeeeeeeep!!! Did I mention....that I love Lauren Layne?? I have? Fifty times, you say? Yeah, well. I. Don't. Care. Never has an author been able to make me smile more, laugh more, swoon more (that's up for debate, but I'm talking big picture here, people), and tear up all in one book. It's just not possible!

3.5 Cotton Candy Stars

There are a few things that I require from my contemporary romances. There needs to be a few likable characters, some hot chemistry and I NEED that cutesy HEA. I got all three in Made for You. This is an easy to read romance that has you pulling for the uptight smart chick who has her entire life planned out but isn’t really living. Even though this is The Best Mistake #2 it can easily be read as a stand-alone since all pertinent information from The Best Mistake is rehashe

3.5 stars!! XP

U know what Lauren Layne did? DO you? She made me feel something for Brynn. And for those of you who don't know, I hate Brynn more than any person in the world, more than Justin Bieber to be precise.

This is the magic in her writing! This is why I go nuts when I see her books! The plot just made me want to do the macarena!


So we meet Brynn and will in Only with You. We know that Will loves her and Brynn just looks at him as a one night stand. WhIle I just
First of all, I am a huge fan of Lauren Layne and I am a huge fan of enemies to lovers story, but this book didn't work for me at all.

The romance was bad. Not Gaga bad because that song makes zero sense, but just very wrong.
What Will and Brynn had was not healthy. They were constantly arguing and throwing insults, they weren't honest, weren't respectful to each other.
Will was downright cruel with Brynn, not to mention unfair. He was never open about his feelings, yet he somehow expected Brynn
Rhea Dsouza
All these enemy-to-lover thingies? They’re my thing! Totally my trope. I love them to death. And Lauren Layne is pretty fucking good at them. Look at her history of writing books where the characters can’t stand each other and then over the course of time, they fall in love with each other. There’s Broken , Isn’t She Lovely, Only With You and now there’s Made For You.

Made for You is the story of Brynn and Will, both of whom we meet in Only With You. Brynn Dalton, Sophie’s older sister is locked
5 Stars!
Another enemies to lovers by LL that's become a favorite of mine.
Loved Will and even though Brynn was a snotty bitch at times I still loved her too! Her and Will cracked me up with their banter. Loved this one! Can't wait for more of this series:))

Lauren Layne never disappoints we are guaranteed a romance that has more ups and downs that a roller coaster.

Brynn and Will have been enemies since high school but Brynn cannot escape Will as Will is her younger sister Sophie's best friend he's always there at family gatherings and Sunday lunches. Fifteen years down the line when Brynn has moved to the suburbs she goes next door with a plate of cookies to welcome her new neighbour who turns out to be Will.

After a break up Brynn take's time out f
Nuh uh!
This had so much potential of becoming a well-written romance between rounded characters. But instead the plot just degenerated into an incoherent, contrived mess in which almost none of the things that Will and Brynn do (for two adults in their 30s) made any sense to me.
Lauren Layne was on the verge of becoming my new favorite go-to author for romances (especially after her Isn't She Lovely - a Pygmalion adaptation) but after this one, I am not sure. It seems like she wrote this in a hur

In romance novels, it's more commonplace to see the heroine floundering and falling all over the hero, with him being clueless or blind to her feelings, than the other way around. In Lauren Layne's MADE FOR YOU, we meet Will and Brynn, two frenemies with a long history of hating each other. But you all know what they say about line between love and hate, right?

Lauren Layne has really a way to move my heart even when I don't expect it. She almost always manages to blow my mind and to make me forget all my previous thoughts.

That author? She found the exact amount of angst, snark, sweet, hot to suit my tastes in contemporary romance. Such a revolution. Seriously.

I mean, hey, sometimes when I read a romance I'm like that -

Or - did he say "I love you" here?

I know, that sucks.

Usually, I enjoy a love-hate relationship or two. All that dripping sexual tension between two people disguised as supposed hate for each other. And the banters! Gosh, those are what I love the most!

I did enjoy that in Made For You. Lauren Layne's one of my go-to authors after all. What I didn't enjoy was how the antagonistic relationship between the two main characters became way too extreme for my liking. The words they threw to each other's faces got way too hurtful that I was almos

MADE FOR YOU is my very first book by Lauren Layne. This is the second book in the Best Mistake series and revolves around the enemies to lovers trope.

Brynn has just turned thirty-one and at her own birthday party, we find her hiding in the toilets, trying to come to grips with how her life ended this way. Immediately I could feel for this character. But as I continued to read and I learned that she has a stable job that she loves, a boyfriend whom she hopes to marry one day and a sister who
I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Made for You is book two in The Best Mistake series. What a follow up to Only with You! Lauren Layne continues to deliver with a fun, heart-warming romance.

Brynn prides herself on being the perfect daughter, sister and career woman. Her to-do-lists have made her what she is today so why isn't Brynn happy. Maybe her perfectly planned life isn't what she needs? Will Thatcher has been part of Brynn's family since their high school year

Eh. I love these types of antagonistic love stories but I found the protagonist, Brynn, to be far too selfish and stubborn to truly enjoy this. We met both Will and Brynn in the previous novel in this series but only briefly--enough to know that Will loved Brynn and Brynn simply saw him as a one-night stand. Now, three years later, Will is back in Brynn's life after unexpectedly moving to Boston and, this time, he has plans to win Brynn over once and for all. Brynn, however, refuses to change he ...more

I love Lauren Layne's voice. I'd happily read her grocery list if she published it. I finished this book, enjoying her snarky, witty dialogue and insights, but I do not believe in these two characters. Brynn and Will were kind to each other for only about 5% of this book. The rest of the time they were horrible to each other. Mean bullies that truly hurt one another. I did not believe in the HEA. I'm certain they'll get divorced in three years.

Apparently the first time I read this one I give it 4 stars. This time, the third time around, I can’t give it anything less than 5 stars. I’m sorry, but it’s just that good. I love everything about the two books in this series. EVERYTHING. I mean, what’s not to love about proper Brynn, wild guy Will and the love they have for each other?

Not the best I've read from her but still very good. Perhaps my biggest complaint was the lack of character development for the hero. He was just someone who was in love with her for a long time period and gave her trouble all the time to be noticed.

Two enemies face each other for the ultimate prize: love. For Will and Brynn, love really was a battlefield in a fifteen year long war.

Will fell in love with Brynn from the moment he laid eyes on her in high school but was pushed away by a seemingly prissy princess who was really an insecure and shy teenager. Will being of persistent character became best friends with her younger sister Sophie, attached himself to her family and became a constant tormentor.
