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

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.

I was so enthused about getting this book. What was not to love? A brooding CEO who always gets what he wants and a take no prisoners, will call you on your bull business consultant butting heads and falling in love-all because of a cookie. Had the makings of comedic romance genius. BUT as the couple began their love-hate relationship I too had one with this novel.

Let me explain. First off the characters were intriguing and Taylor was often times very funny in her ramblings; like none of us had done when dealing with infuriating men. Bennett may have had a hurtful past but that gave him no right to act the way he did. He was also a bulldozer as Taylor so perfectly calls him time and time again.

Secondly, they were so hot and cold all the time. It felt like I was on the rollercoaster along with Taylor and all I wanted to do was get off. The book was all over the place and it was hard to keep up with it most of the time. Taylor never could make up her mind and Bennett always had this impenetrable wall he never wanted anyone crossing. Yet, would never let Taylor go or give her a reason to stay. She was always in limbo with him.

Lastly, this was written from Taylor’s point of view and at certain points she droned on and on about what she was planning to do or what she thought someone was thinking. In her line of work there is a lot of assuming but that was what got her into sooo much trouble. As the story progressed, rather slowly, I knew the ended was going to hurt. And it did while making me want to throttle both Bennett and Taylor.

This is story was well-written and entertaining to read, to a point. It was hard to connect to either Bennett or Taylor but I am so very glad they both got off their high horse and let love in. I think this series has great potential and I will be reading the series as it progresses because I love Ms. Luci!!
