When the fierce redhead with the beautiful ass walks into the local bar, I can tell she’s passing through. And I’m looking for distraction while I’m in town—a hot hook-up and nothing more before I head back to the city.

If she has secrets, I don't want to know them.

If she feels good underneath me, I don't want to think about it too hard.

If she's my future, I don't want t

Love Rehab is the first book I've read from Louise Bay and I cannot wait to read more! Why in the hell did I wait so long?! What is wrong with me?! I am love drunk on her writing!!!

This book had me cheering for Mackenzie, the loveaholic. She just wants to find her one true love and have her happily ever after. I NEEDED her to get her happily ever after...with Blake. Oh God. What a fine, fine man! He's such a kind, sexy and caring soul. SWOON! I loved hearing his thou

Louise Bay has done it again, what great story. If you want a nice read, with romance, laughter, best friends, a gorgeous guy and hot sex, then this one won't disappoint.
I loved Mackenzie and Blake from the beginning, they are both really nice people, both confused about where their lives are going and both in need of Love Rehab. Mackenzie's best friends Rose and Kennedy were both really likeable and funny. Great book - great characters.

When Louise announced this release I have to say I was all over it! Since I loved King of Wall Street, I was super excited to read this one. And I was definitely surprised because this was totally different from my last read by hers: Love Rehab still is sexy AF (like KOWS) but the theme of it and the storyline is completely different which is always great!

I really enjoyed King of Wall Street so I was super excited to start this new book by Louise Bay. Mackenzie Locke has had three failed engagements. After the 3rd one she decided to take a Love Rehab retreat in the middle of nowhere, Oklahoma with her two best friends, Kennedy and Rose. A lot happens during those five days in Oklahoma.

I may not have fallen in love with Mackenzie, but I could definitely relate to her. I think many of us have found ourselves in her position. She's been dumped by her third fiance and is wondering what she's doing wrong. She believes that she's the problem somehow. She realizes that she's quite the catch (which she is) and is proud of the fact that she's had three men love her enough to propos

**I was given an ARC of Love Rehab*

OH MY! Where do I start?!

First off, let me just say, that this is the first time I’ve seriously connected with a character from any of the books I’ve read so far in my life. Love Rehab is one of the most inspiring books of 2016 and one of the most raw, honest, powerful, and profoundly beautiful stories I've ever read. It was not what I expected, but it delivered so much more than I ever hoped for. Louise Bay truly knocked it out of the park with this one. This

I am addicted to her stories!

This was such a great read. I could totally relate to MacKenzie. I had the same issues when I was younger but never had the girlfriend connection like she did or the ability to head out for an intervention. What a fun concept!

And I just loved Blake! What an absolute perfect uncowboy cowboy and a beautiful, caring character that balanced MacKenzie perfectly.

With loads of hot and steamy encounters, it’s easy to get swept away into this delightful romance. Th

This book reminded me why I love Louise Bay.

It had everything. Blake and Mackenzie were wonderful, relateable and acted as people would in this least how I think they would having never been to a wilderness love retreat.

But, that is what matters...that as a reader, I am invested in the story and intereste4d in the characters and where they are going. I definitely was with this.

I sympathized with the choice Blake needed to

The whole story is opens up with a very promising romance story. The insta love is there, the steamy sex is there, 2 gorgeous characters is there. I even like the idea there is a ranch that being used as therapy session. Love therapy. Talking to the horse is hilarious.

Then I lost it. Just lost it. This book turns out to be therapy session. A real therapy. I feel like I am talking to my therapy and my therapy telling me what is wrong with me. The different is the object of this therapy

I'm so glad I found Louise Bay, I look forward to her books now everytime a new book is announced and they never disappoint.

Love Rehab is different from previous books by Louise Bay but what is the same is Louise's ability to draw you into the story of the characters to enjoy their journey.

Love Rehab and Makenzies story is hot, thoughtful with moments that give you warm fuzzy's.

I loved it and I loved that it wasn't an office romance, variety is the spice of life and this sure had some hot and

I voluntarily read an ARC of this book.

Holy geez Louise (pun intended)!!!

This book took me on a very personal journey of self reflection into how I've lived and loved, much like Mackenzie went through. I felt some parts of her love life mirrored my own, and I may or may not have cried throughout all of chapter 6. All. The. Feels. Feels that reached down into my soul and stirred something I dared not think about before.

Self reflection is very important. We should all take moments in our lives t

I struggled till 45% and then skipped to the last chapter and epilogue.
I can't say if I liked the MCs. The h seemed weak, but since I didn't read about her (hopefully) getting stronger and more self-confident I can't say much.
The H was just ok.
It was a bit boring for me.

There was something fresh about Louise Bay's Love Unexpected and I loved that both characters went through a lot of self reflection in this book yet it wasn't filled with a ton of angst. Meeting at a time when they were both at a crossroads in their lives, these two characters find in each other just what they wanted without even realizing it. Smart, funny, emotional and smokin' hot I thoroughly enjoyed Love Unexpected.

Because I'm the biggest fan of Louise Bay's books, this review is hard for me.


First, I have to recommend this book for everybody, especially readers with bigger brain capacity for psychology analyzing, than me.
personally, I felt overloaded with too much drama and emotional stuff (Except for the shaman doctor scene. that was true).

So, I skimmed a lot. Actually, most of the book.
The heroine had to go through a deep emotional process to understand why her three ex-fiances left her so Unexpectedl

Blake's thoughts sometimes amused me, “what?” Did she mean the sex? I was pretty sure she wasn’t disappointed." It's quite apparent Blake has quite the stamina, "she shifted and I wrapped my arms around her, pulling her closer, her back to my front. “Again?” she asked, as I pushed my stirring erection against her ***." Blake isn't shy apparently, “sure, but are you peeing with the door open?” she asked. “We don’t know each other well enough to pee with the door open.” I really loved this book, a ...more

I was excited to get a chance to read Love Rehab after enjoying Louise's previous book. It was the blurb that caught my attention. While I didn't love it as much as I was hoping, I did like it though. The premise was really interesting. Love rehab would make such a hit if it were true. Our heroine Mackenzie believes her problem is she's loveholic or so thinks. If only things were that simple.

I love all of Louise Bay’s books and I think this may be my new favourite, it is very different from her usual style and I loved that it was. I loved the setting for this story and the characters were fantastic from the leads to the best friends, wise sisters and wiser horses this book has it all with a big helping of humour and soul searching insights.

Louise Bay does it again! I never know what to expect with her books, but I know I'm always going to love the characters.

Blake and Makenzie were easy to love. Makenzie was easy to connect with and understand why she needed to rehab her love life. And when she was down and feeling like she was a failure at this too, you wanted her to realize that for once she was being true to herself even if she didn't see it. Blake brought out the real Makenzie, helping her understand herself and

Love Rehab is a such a sweet, fun, and insightful romance, and honestly, who would have thought that a trip to rehab could be so darn sexy???

‘Lovaholic’ Mackenzie thought that she loved too much. She desperately tries to be the perfect girlfriend, but continuously it has never been enough…

‘All you need is love, my ass. Fuck you, John Lennon, you lying asshole.’

It took Mackenzie’s trip to Love Rehab where all distractions where stripped away for her to face the true problem at hand, AND of course

After her latest (her third) broken engagement, Mackenzie gets her two best girlfriends to accompany her to Oklahoma, where they embark on an expedition to reclaim their love lives. For Mackenzie, the process proves both enlightening and fulfilling, just perhaps not in the ways she thought it would.

She kicks off her stay with a hot one-night stand with Blake, a hot Oklahoman. And this is the first of Mackenzie's unmet expectations: Blake's sister Brianna runs Love Rehab, and he tags along to hel
♡ Jeri's Book Attic ♡ Jeri the Romance Bibiliophile ♡

Love Rehab by Louise Bay could unfortunately not keep up with the expectations I had after reading the Blurb. What could have been a well developed romance felt superficial to me. The characters were not deep or in any way remarkable enough for me to try to relate to them.
I felt the plot deserved more feeling and depth
I might be the odd one out here but this was not my kind of plot.
