REVIEW: Well Suited by Staci Hart

by - 7:00 AM

“And I didn’t care why because she was mine. It didn’t even cross my mind that I might not be hers.”

Back of the book blurb:

Chemistry is my love language.

  I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

  And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

  I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

  When: approximately five weeks ago.

Who: one night stand.

How: prophylactic malfunction.

  The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

  Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

  And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.

  I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

  But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

  And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

My rating:

            I am so sad. You want to know why? Because while I was so excited to read Well Suited, the fact that I finished it means that there is officially no more RLC, except for that they’ll live on forever in my heart. These books have become some of my absolute favorite reads ever and Well Suited was no exception.

Well Suited is the fourth and final novel in the Red Lipstick Coalition series and follows Katherine and Theodore as they try to navigate extremely uncharted waters for both of them. Staci Hart’s back with heart and humor that will once again please readers everywhere for years to come.

“Her eyes weren’t on me. But mine were on her.”

            From day one, Theodore knew there was something about Katherine. I think we can all agree that we were chomping at the bit for her story, as well, since we first met her in Piece of Work and know her as the very logical and analytical one out of all four girls. While the other girls are more in tune with their feelings, Katherine is firmly backed by fact. That all changes, though, when she finds out that she’s pregnant with Theodore’s (Tommy’s from Work in Progress twin) baby.

            With emotions out of whack and tension at an all-time high, Katherine and Theodore must find a happy medium that will please both of them. Of course, it never works out as simply as you want it to.

 “I chased the fleeting thought that I’d follow her anywhere.”

            I think my favorite stories are probably the ones where the guy falls in love before the girl. In romance especially, I feel as if a lot of novels follow girls who are pining after the guy and he’s not ready or he doesn’t realize his feelings, etc. Staci Hart flips that around with Well Suited and this time, Katherine is the one who isn’t ready even though Theodore clearly adores her. I absolutely love that! It’s so refreshing to have that happen and so completely devastating in the best way possible.

“The more I liked him, the harder it would be when he realized I was impossible to endure.”

            It absolutely broke my heart to find out just how insecure Katherine was. There are a lot of reasons for her insecurity and honestly, I just wanted to hug her because ugh! She’s probably my favorite out of all of the RLC girls. They’re all so incredible, but Katherine’s story can be so heartbreaking at times.

            That’s my favorite thing about the RLC as a series, though. All four of these girls went in as these insecure, unsure girls and came out confident and full of self-love. Yes, they fell in love, but most importantly, they found themselves along the way and that is so important at any age. To be able to look in the mirror and say, “I am so proud of you,” and actually mean it? Nothing beats that. And through self-love, friendship, and romantic love, these girls are able to do that. I am so proud of them, honestly.

“He kissed me like he’d been dreaming of kissing me his whole life, like he’d recounted it in a thousand ways, and now that it was upon him, his restraint was gone.”

            I need a Theodore in my life. Not only was the man patient and caring and devastatingly handsome, he was just a genuinely good person. He loves his family unconditionally. He knew how to love Katherine without her telling him, even though there were speed bumps along the way. He is constantly taking care of everyone in his life, so when Katherine finally realized that maybe he needed be taken care of, oh my god. It was absolutely beautiful.

“To the men we need, even though we’d be damn fine without them.”

            Even though the RLC series consist of romances, they’re so much more. They’re about the value of true friendship, of self-love, and asking for what you want and need instead of settling for something mediocre. Staci Hart has crafted one of the most delightful series to ever grace our Kindles/hands/however you read. I am sad to see it end, but I am so grateful that it exists. I will be recommending this series for years to come because it is so important.

Happy Reading!
