Best Laid Plans Box Set
by Robyn Kelly
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Jillian Whitkins is an event planner who is ready to throw in the towel. She is managing a birthday party with a 50 Shades of Grey theme—and it’s turning into a disaster! The birthday girl is drunk, the guests are harassing her staff, and she is about to offend a real-life Christian Grey.
He is hot. And it’s not just physical. There’s a sexual energy that radiates off him like Sterno under a chafing dish. I could stare at this man’s profile all day. I smell the faint scent of chlorine, and visualize him stepping out of a swimming pool wearing nothing but a smile.
From somewhere deep inside, I let out a little “Ohhh.” Not like in “Oh, dear.” More like “Ohhh Santa, bring me him!”
When his head turns in my direction, I know I should look away. Yet I can’t not see what he looks like. I hope there is a tremendous scar across the far side of his face (that he got in a duel) because then he wouldn’t be perfect, and if he wasn’t perfect, I might have a chance. Yet when his head turns and his eyes lock on me, I can see there’s nothing marring his square jaw and sensual full lips.
He winks. My body shudders, my grip loosens, and that expensive bottle of champagne falls to the floor. The impact dislodges the cork, which ricochets off the ceiling into the tower of flute glasses, knocking them over like bowling pins. They shatter into a million shards that rain down over the bar.
This is a sign. Anytime I’m attracted to a man, it always ends badly.
Wow! This book was such a fun, hot, steamy, exciting read! I could not put this book down!
Miss Kelly’s writing style is superb! She wrote this book with such detail and precision, everything was so easy to picture - it was like a movie playing in my head. The pace of the book was steady and evenly flowed.
There are quite a few funny lines and witty banter that definitely had me giggling and let me tell you I was reading this book in public, but I could not keep it in! Gosh, what those people must have been thinking lol!
This book defines sexy and will definitely keep a smile glued on your face! Perhaps a few blushing moments that will make you cringe, but you won’t be able to look away.
I really liked the main characters, Jillian and Jackson. Both characters felt very true, realistic, and relatable. Jillian is an event planner with a struggling business. She is young, pretty, intelligent, and somewhat innocent, but not completely lol. Jackson is a sexy, rich, confident, CEO who is San Francisco’s most eligible bachelor. Jillian is about to throw in the towel and call it quits on her business. In fact, this party was going to be her last. When she then meets Jackson, in a very strange and funny way! She thinks he’s abducting a guest of the party! Yea, can you say awkward LOL!!
Jillian and Jackson both have some serious baggage and painful backgrounds. Their relationship isn’t all cupcakes and rainbows. Between coming from different worlds, their dark histories, and others trying to break them apart there is a lot of obstacles these two face and it will definitely take some work if they are going to make it.
I think you will probably be rooting for them or perhaps like me, secretly hoping it doesn’t work out so that I can date Jackson LOL!!!
Okay yes, there are some parallels to Fifty Shades of Grey – it’s even the theme of Jillian’s parties. And yes, there’s CEO/most eligible bachelor Jackson who resembles Christian and the innocent/naïve girl Jillian who kind of resembles Anastasia. Honestly, I like Jillian more than I liked Anastasia lol. But this book really is a different story and a different approach to the BDSM world. This book is a lighter take – still hot and steamy, but less graphic. Perhaps it’s even more enjoyable and still very realistic. Plus there is so much more comedy and laughing out loud scenes!
It may seem like this is a really long book, running at 392 pages. However, this book is a box set and therefore, it’s actually two books together. I actually finished this book over a weekend and even though I thought it would take longer to finish, the pages just flew right by.
I was thoroughly entertained by this book and would absolutely recommend it! You definitely don’t want to miss out on this one! I promise you won’t regret it!
This book strongly deserves all five stars and honestly, if I could I probably would have given it more!

Robyn Kelly is my pen name. I work for one of the top boutique event planning companies in San Francisco, and I can't risk having our clientele (or my boss) discover my passion for aggressive, sexual, alpha men.
I write the kinds of stories I like to read. I realized the top four things I love in a romance are:
The chase. I don't care how hot or rich the hero is, he's got to work for it if he wants in to my heroine's panties—for at least four chapters!
Second chances. My heroines aren't virgins. They are women who have loved and lost before.
I'm not against virgins, some of my best friends in high school were virgins. I just think they should stick with bad boys, and leave the billionaires to us experienced women.
Humor. I love a book that can get me both hot and laughing.
Happy endings. They’re so much better than cliff-hangers.
