"Not Planning On You" By: Sydney Landon Review


Not Planning on You
By: Sydney Landon

Synopsis from Goodreads

Suzy Denton seems to have it all together. She loves her job as an event's planner for Danvers International, and she loves her high school sweetheart and fiance Jeff.
Fast forward a month and it's all gone to hell in a hand-basket. She finds out Jeff's dentist has been doing more than drilling his teeth, and Danvers is in the process of merging with Mericom creating the largest communications company in the US and also bringing Gray Merimon, the CEO of Mericom into her life.
Gray pursues her from almost their first meeting. Even though he looks like sex on a stick, Suzy is afraid of being hurt again, and she thinks Gray is just another stuffed shirt looking for a relationship. When he calls her bluff, Suzy agrees to one night of sex, hoping that he will be terrible in bed and she can finally get him out of her system.
When circumstances throw them together for more than one night, can Gray convince Suzy that two complete opposites can be a perfect fit?
My Thoughts 
    After my hard time with “Weekend’s Required” By: Sydney Landon, I still wanted to try “Not Planning on You.” I loved Suzy when I read about her and just had to read her story. I wasn’t disappointed in the least and absolutely loved this crazy, zany lady and her happily ever after.
    Suzy met Gray Merimon briefly in “Weekend’s Required,” at a business dinner. Intrigued by him but not wanting to get caught up in a relationship so soon after breaking up with her, she kind of plays hard to get. Flirting but not quite crossing that line. Finally Suzy breaks down and agrees to one night with Gray, thinking it would get him out of her system and out of her life. Unfortunately, before her special night can commence, she breaks her ankle. Who else is there to help her out during her time of need, but said enemy/crush Gray?
     This book is so dang cute, I can’t even begin to relate. Suzy is so funny and sassy that you find yourself laughing at her quick comebacks. Gray finds himself drawn to her and her quick wit. Nothing ever goes the way they plan and slowly they fall in love over broken bones and breakfast.
     Not your usual romance, Suzy and Gray find themselves in a very unconventional romance that still makes me sigh. There is a secondary story with an ex-girlfriend that I could have done without, but besides that the romance was very well done. I loved Suzy, Gray made me smile and I had none of the problems with this one I did with the first in the series. Anxiously waiting for the next book and crossing my fingers it will be Suzy’s sister Beth and Gray’s brother Nick. Here’s hoping folks!
