Rules of a Rebound by Nina Crespo- REVIEW & GIVEAWAY


Natalie Winters thought she’d married the man of her dreams…but her marriage ended way too soon in a nightmarish divorce. She even has to share custody of the dog! The stress is killing her, so she decides to take a night off and attend the Breakup Bash—a private party for women celebrating their breakups—with her friends. Former executive security specialist turned bartender Rome Collier is drawn to the woman easily trading sexy banter with him. And if she wants the “Do Me” condoms she accidentally throws across the counter at him, she’ll have to claim them…personally. Their flirtation turns into so much more, and every scintillating night they spend together is better than the last. Strong, protective...and hot, Rome is everything Natalie ever wanted in a man. All she has to do is convince him he’s more than a rebound.

My thoughts:
Steamy story. Sweet. Easy read.
Natalie and Rome... they hooked up while she’s at a rebound bash after a terrible divorce. Their relationship was slam-bam (in all senses); very sudden, unexpected and then they were in a relationship neither planned for. There were nods to both of them having historical issues but they clicked and they jumped into it. Overall sweet story with hot sexy moments that steam up the pages.
Their historical issues were the only major conflict holding them apart. Sure there were job stressors pulling at both of them, but not enough to keep them apart. I kept waiting for a “bad guy” or something big to tear them apart but it didn’t show up. That’s not necessarily a disappointment, just a comment. It means this isn’t an angsty high-feels read, but it’s super cute with good characters and overall easy.

A copy of this book was provided by Entangled via NetGalley for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion

“Jennifer L. Armentrout’s intoxicating new fantasy is her best yet!” New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter on Storm and Fury
“Dark, mysterious, and yet often hilarious, this riveting page-turner sparkles with innuendo and delivers a breathtaking romance; a stunning conclusion to the trilogy. “ Library Journal on Moonlight Scandals
“With this first title in her new Dark Elements series, powerhouse author Armentrout delivers another action-packed, believably narrated ride through a paranormal world as seen by a teen.”Booklist on White Hot Kiss


4.5 Stars.
Love love love every story created by this author and this was no exception. Here we get the fae king, Caden, torn between duty and desire and Brighton, a human who's in the middle of a fae war chasing vengeance for her mother's death.
Now, to be honest I had not read previous in this series and this one seems as if it's in the middle. So, the first few chapters were rocky with regard to world introduction. This is a complex space the author designed. Took me a while to catch on but once there wasn't so much dumping of details to get the reader caught up, the story zoomed by.
The characters have wonderful heat and some super smexy moments. This is not a story for the faint of heart since there's torture in all its gory detail and a heroine who has to be her own kickass. She's a feisty girl and who doesn't love that?
Warning- ends on a cliff hanger with no plot resolution. And now I've got to read the next.

Looks what's on sale for the next week. 
You don't want to miss this because the sequel is coming
  August 12!

What it's about:
Tori Duarte’s big dreams to be a video game designer...well, they haven’t panned out. And a girl’s gotta eat. Enter: the Stadium, a secretive video game gambling ring. As a world ranked eGamer, winning should be cake. Until it’s not. Gambling debts suck her in deep.

A chance encounter with the media shy, ridiculously handsome video game CEO Noah Harrison offers her a way out. The deal: 1) Assist the FBI to catch the underworld eGaming kingpin (doable but dangerous). 2) Keep the FBI connection secret by pretending to date Noah (not optional but keeping it PG is problematic).

Noah’s never been more attracted to a woman in his life. But while the dates are fake, the threat to Tori’s life is real. What neither expects is an explosive chemistry that’s more than convincing—it’s sizzling. Falling for each other is the most dangerous thing they could do...

***This is a novel is a standalone fake relationship romantic comedy full of steamy heat with dabs of suspense. ***
