BLOG TOUR: My POV of Speaking of Love by Ophelia London

Speaking of Love (Perfect Kisses, #2)
book 2
ebook, 230 pages
Published February 11th 2013 by Entangled Publishing (Bliss)

 Speech teacher and successful matchmaker Mackenzie Simms decides to find a woman for her friend, handsome newspaper tycoon Rick Duffy. Though they’ve been each other’s go-to dates for the past month, Mac and Rick couldn't be more different: she is outspoken, sarcastic, and completely loathes his privileged lifestyle. He's laid-back, unassuming, and seems comfortable at an upper-class charity function. So why can't she stop thinking about him?

Rick knows he and the opinionated-though-adorable Mackenzie are better off as friends, so he agrees to the double-date getaway Mac plans at his family cabin. But seeing Mac cuddle up with her “friendly” date rankles Rick beyond reason, and Mac regrets her matchmaking scheme the minute she sees the way her beauty-queen cousin looks at Rick. Can Mac 'fess up to what's really in her heart, when speaking her mind puts everything at risk?--Goodreads


I’m always glad and relieved when two wonderful characters find their happily ever after!

Rick is a journalist who has taken ownership of The Franklin Standard (a local paper) per his grandfather’s dying wishes. He comes from a very wealthy family with deep roots in the city of Franklin but that hasn’t fazed his personality. He is a realistic down to earth person with simple expectations. 

Mackinze is a speak/debate high school teacher who is not afraid to voice her opinion and fight what she believes in.  Mack is a beautiful, strong, independent woman who loves her family and donates her time to the local animal shelter. She is emotionally unavailable since her pass relationship didn’t end well but somehow Rick has slipped passed her defenses and into her heart. 

Fighting her feelings and ignoring the obvious she finds herself in a difficult place not only because she is afraid to start a romantic relationship with anyone but because unbeknownst to Rick their fathers have a hateful history.

It wasn’t an easy journey for Rick and Mackenzie since she felt they didn’t have compatible lifestyles and he felt that Mack wasn’t interested. It’s experiencing the heartache, insecurity, and doubt of these characters that make them so relatable. I love stories like this since I feel like they give us all hope that even faced with difficult obstacles between love interests there is still a possible happy ending.
