Review: Tailored for Trouble (Happy Pants #1) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Book Blurb

A sassy, sexy, laugh-out-loud rom-com between the hottest man never to be tamed and the woman crazy enough to try


Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program—helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She’d love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm.


Bennett Wade is many things—arrogant, smug, brusque—but trusting isn’t one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there’s one thing Bennett can’t stand, it’s when things don’t go according to plan.

They are a match tailor-made for trouble.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Taylor Reed isn’t happy with her job but it pays her well and she has paid off her student loans.  Maybe it’s time to find something else.  She has a difficult morning and is late to an important meeting. Before the meeting really gets started, it’s over.
Bennett Wade is a complete jerk and Taylor tells him so.  He walks out of the meeting and she walks out of her job.  Time to do something more meaningful instead of deal with men like Mr. Wade.
To her surprise Mr. Wade approaches her four months later wanting to hire her.  She is shocked but refuses to work with a man that treats her like crap.  He doesn’t take no for an answer.  Her anger, hurt and humiliation almost get the best of her but she realizes she isn’t that type of person.  She learns the truth behind Bennett Wade’s drive.  She even tries to help.  However nothing goes as planned and Taylor finds herself back at a crossroads.
It took a little while for me to get into this book.  Bennett was such a jerk that I couldn’t stand him at first.  He was pretty high handed in the beginning that it was a turn off for the story, but I persevered and kept reading.

Once Taylor started working with him and traveling, the story got really interesting.  I liked how Taylor was so judgmental in the beginning and then was knocked down a few pegs by the end, as was Bennett.  They made a good pairing.  I liked how the author provided a lot of banter between them.  Their irritation with each other was almost comical.  I also thought the idea of a love cookie was inspired.  I will so want to read any other books in the Happy Pants CafĂ© series.  It was a fun read once things got going.  I love this author and I give this book a 4 out of 5.
