Book Description:
Mackenzie and Landon were the perfect couple . . . until he dumped her and broke her heart. Fast-forward a year and they're back where they first met—Serenity Ranch and Spa, where they are once again working together for the summer. Talk about awkward.

Then, Landon takes a nasty fall and gets amnesia. Suddenly, he’s stuck in the past—literally. His most recent memory is of last summer, when he and Mack were still together, so now he’s calling her pet names and hanging all over her. It's the perfect chance for revenge. The plan is simple: keep Landon at arm’s length, manipulate him so he’s the one falling love, and then BAM, dump him. There’s just one problem: Mack can’t fall for Landon all over again.

The If Only romance line is all about wanting what you can't have, and Mandy Hubbard's hilarious break-up/love story is sure to captivate anyone who has ever wished for a second shot at love.







This is the second book I have picked up from Bloomsbury's new line and I have to say, I am loving them! So much fun.

These are the reads that I absolutely crave some days. The hopeless romantic in me demands to be fed and these give me exactly what I need when I have needed them. 

I adored Mackenzie and her pranks and full loving attitude and my heart went out to her over her heartbreak with Landon. And even though in the beginning I didn't want to like or even love Landon, darn the author, I couldn't help but love him by the end. 

This was such a fun story perfect for this time of read and I soaked it up with a smile on my face almost the whole read through. This truly is a fun loving story with those happily ever afters I crave and live for. 

Hubbard did an amazing job bringing her characters to life and making them so realistic that they feel like people you know and already love. People you connect with and want to be friends with, with situations that anyone can imagine and relate to.
