The Best Laid Plans by Tamara Mataya Blog Tour


Jayne Griffin isn’t looking for Mr. Right. She’s looking for Mr. RTFN and a toe-curling good time. She’s got the brains, the powerful job as a futures broker, and thanks to a makeover and a thin book of dating advice, the confidence to turn any man’s head.

Malcolm Black notices his high school crush, Jayne, from the stage of her company’s work party. His adolescent feelings for her died beneath months of abuse at the hands of bullies. Abuse that was Jayne’s fault. Though this scorching hot studio musician is unrecognizable as the band geek he used to be, the hurt still lives inside him, and he hatches a plan: Seduce Jayne into falling in love with him, and then shatter her heart.

The white-hot chemistry between them is a pleasant surprise. It all goes so smoothly until Feelings start to develop... and that invitation to their ten year high school reunion lands in their inboxes.

Jayne wants the perfect lover. Malcolm wants revenge. But you know what they say about The Best Laid Plans...


I really like the way this was written. Tamara does a great job with the dual points of view and definitely steams up the pages. I'm pretty sure at some point I may have bumped my pillow Malcolm is just that good. Tamara has written a story that will suck you in and want to hate Malcolm, all while falling completely in love with him. Though one thing I would like to have known more of is about Jayne and HS and her sister. I would have loved for her to explain in more detail to us and him, what happened. I mean we heard about the bullies from his point of view in detail, why not hers? I will say this. Hearing the stories if what Dylan went through, I got pissed. Just thinking that could be a reality for someone pulled an instant reaction out of me. That's the kind of story this is. You will switch between screaming bc of her orgasms and screaming bc you are so mad 

I give this 4 hearts 

Tamara Mataya is currently a librarian; she lurked there for so long recommending books to patrons and shushing people, that she suspects they only hired her so it would be less creepy. Now she’s armed with a name tag, and a thin veneer of credibility. She’s also a musician with synaesthesia – which isn't an issue until someone plays a wrong note, which makes her want to squirm inside out. It makes for a good live show.
