The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.
Yeah, I wish.
I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.
It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.
As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.
I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.
Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…
He’s my ex-husband.
Dean and Chelsea are the ultimate second chance. Not ex-boyfriend and girlfriend who broke up through no fault of their own...but a divorced couple who split up because the things that happened to them in their relationship were more than they could manage to get past...for reasons that you start to suspect but are fully revealed slowly.
Sometimes, it is nice to read a book about where the man just loves the woman. This is that book. Dean is back, because he wants Chelsea in his life. He messed up, he knows what he lost, and he wants her back. He owns this, he admits it, and he does all that he can to make it happen. And, for this book, that is necessary as Dean, and his actions, are the reason that they split in the first place, so he really does need to be the one who is "all in" from the beginning.
There are some hurdles, and some revelations for Chelsea, that crop up and sort of make it look like things are not going to ever be able to be put back together for them...but they work through it. There is a thing that is not resolved at the end of the book, but I am guessing, as there is another story to come, we will see that happy resolution in the backstory of the 3rd title.
I enjoyed this title and I recommend it.
