After Alexis Maguire’s wedding day comes and goes without a groom, she decides that it’s time for a change. Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.
Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier. Having grown up an army brat, he’s ready to put down roots, and the only thing missing is a woman to share his life with. When Alexis blows into town, Gunnar thinks he may have met his match, despite the wild-child facade he sees right through. But Alexis swears she won’t settle down anytime soon—so it’s up to Gunnar to convince her that what she’s looking for . . . is right here.

Unlucky in Love the 4th book in the Whisper Creek Series was a sweet read. It can be read as a stand alone as I didn't read any of the others and I had no problems. Although I liked the secondary characters so much I kinda wanna go back and read their stories too. This was a clean romance for my friends that don't like the sexy time. But just because this is a clean read didn't mean it was lacking in romance. Lexi and Gunnar had a connection that was coming through the pages strong. I loved Gunnar. He was just so charming. There was just something special about him. I liked Lexi too. I found some of her quirks cute, but her obsession to get her ex, who was clearly a worthless coward, back drove me crazy. I felt she held on to her plan to get her ex back for too long. I loved Gunnar and Lexi together. They had a sweet love and a deep friendship too. There are some really funny moments in this book too. At the end the romantic gestures that Gunnar did had me smiling like a silly sap. They were over the top super sweet and I loved every minute of it.
