The Scheme Banner

Title: The Scheme
Author: Mia Kayla
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 25, 2015



Brian Benson is the nice guy every girl dreams of marrying. 
Too bad he’s off the market—for good. 
He’s sworn off women since the last girl he dated broke his heart. 
Determined to start over in New York, his sole focus is to climb the corporate ladder—no distractions.
Until one minor collision propels him into the path of small-town-girl but bombshell babe, Kendy Miller.

Kendy walks with a sass she was born with. 
Single and ready to mingle, she’s on the prowl. 
Moving from her tiny town of Bowlesville to work as a nurse at New York Cornell Hospital, she is introduced to Dr. Hot Pants. 
She feels it in her bones—he only belongs to her. 

When Kendy formulates a grand scheme to land Dr. Hot Pants and uses Brian to do it, Brian is all in because he could use a little fun.

Things were going to plan, until one night lines were crossed, kisses were exchanged and clothes flew off. 

Fate collides, fortunes are tested and plans backfire, but Kendy is still determined to land her doctor.  

Problem is… Brian was only there to assist in the plot. Falling in love with the girl wasn’t part of THE SCHEME.

My Review

Love the premise...the friends-to-more and friends with benefits tropes are always a favorite for me.  The writing is excellent, and the characters are fun...and there's just the right amount of angst with the issues from both Brian and Kendy's pasts to add some tension.  The chemistry between the two of them just jumps right off the pages too.

Brian's character is wonderful-he's sweet and really is the "nice guy"...with the added bonus of being a whirlwind with Kendy in the bedroom.  I did empathize with him with what had happened to him in the past, and I was wishing the whole way through this story that everything would work out for him since he really deserves a happy ending.

Kendy though--she kind of grated on me with her slightly immature attitude and pretty shallow outlook on finding her "one".  This became even more pronounced the further into the story when it becomes blatantly obvious how Brian and Kendy BOTH feel about each other.  The fact that she continues to have faith in her interpretation of things she's been told in the past just drove me batty.

Thankfully, about two-thirds of the way through Kendy seems to start coming around and acting more like the grown-up she is...though until you get to the very end, you still won't know how everything will end up.

For me, Brian is the character that truly makes this story.  I just really couldn't warm up to Kendy at all, even at the very end.  But Brian...he's a keeper, pure and simple.  And Mia Kayla's writing will keep you tuned in to the story from start to finish.
