Review and Excerpt: Meant to Be Yours by Susan Mallory

Meant to Be Yours is a fun, quirky read featuring Jasper, a military vet, who thinks he is too broken to be able to love long-term. And Renee, a wedding planner, who is pretty sure a wedding is NEVER is store for her future. These two meet and decide to “hook up” for as long things work out.

In the meantime, Jasper, who is a writer, takes an interest in Renee’s career as a wedding planner to help him study how the female mind works. He thinks this can help him with a female character he’s writing. Jasper has a lot to learn, not only about how the female mind works, but about what his heart may need as well.

I really enjoyed this story. Both characters had to do some maturing and growing, but it was nice to see them both work through hard things. The Happily Inc series is great and can be read as standalones, but I’d recommend starting from the beginning to truly get the most out of each story.



Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.

After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.

Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?
