Misadventures With My Ex by New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black AVAILABLE NOW!
Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.
Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.
As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?
Add to your TBR:
That said, I enjoyed their relationship and I enjoyed their chemistry and their attraction. While I was not a fan of his family, I did believe he would have made the decisions he did in the past, so this title passed my first...requirement, for lack of a better word...in a second chance romance, I need to believe in the reason that they initially split up was either something out of their control, or something that was compelling enough that I am able to forgive...and this one meets the requirement.
Overall, I enjoyed and recommend this title.
I will say I had a bit of a tough time connecting with Eryn in this book. I thought she was acted a bit immature and a touch dramatic and I had a hard time with that. BUT that was who she was, so it was me that had a problem, not necessarily the character if that makes sense. I definitely connected with West quickly and understood him and his actions.
There is chemistry here. I understood what pulled them apart in the past, I think the Author explained that quite well. I do think they way they handled themselves was true to their character, which is always important to me. I understood WHY they did the things they did, even if I didn't love them.
The writing here was very well done-and I think the plot flowed well. The pacing worked. It just took me longer to connect with Eryn than I expected. Overall, I did like this book and recommend it.
