Hey y’all…it’s Thursday, woot woot! Weekend’s almost here! Hope everyone is having a great week so far…
Throwback Thursday is a meme where I can share some oldies but goodies…books that are older than a year and have been sitting on my TBR for awhile or books that I’ve read & enjoyed, often from my READ AGAIN E-SHELF. I’ve seen this meme floating around for awhile now so I finally decided to jump on board. Thanks to Renee @ It’s Book Talk who started this meme…if you get a chance, go check out her blog!
This week’s FRIDAY FAVES theme is CHICK LIT and you know I like themes 😉 so for THROWBACK THURSDAY, I’ve picked a book that I think fits in well.
Add it your Goodreads: Cheater’s Regret (Curious Liaisons #2) by Rachel Van Dyken
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken returns with a smoking-hot story about the satisfaction of plotting revenge on your ex—until he turns your world upside down again.
Austin Rogers’s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her—as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex’s downfall—but so does kissing him.
Thatch Holloway, a plastic surgeon straight out of residency, knows he ruined the best thing that ever happened to him. But not all cheaters are created equal. He got himself into this messed-up situation—true—but he has his reasons for what happened, and he’d do it all again to protect Austin.
He’s not over her. And she’s not over him.
Austin wants closure, but since Thatch refuses to give it to her, she takes matters into her own hands. She needs to write a human-interest piece for her MBA, so she demands the full plastic-surgery experience. Sparks fly as they’re forced to work together. But Thatch isn’t afraid to play dirty in return. And he’s still hiding something—something that has the power to destroy not only Austin but their second chance at finding forever…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Before I say anything, let me just explain that I’m really not big on reading about cheating partners or love triangles..it’s just my preference. BUT this book is so much more than it seems! Don’t let the subject deter you because this book has everything I look for in a great story…characters that have depth but are a bit flawed, humor, a dash of drama, sexy love scenes and a seriously awesome plot. Rachel Van Dyken is great at creating characters that feel real to me, guys and gals that aren’t perfect, that make mistakes but know when to forgive. I went back and forth between loving Thatch and hating him! I also literally laughed out loud during some of the funny parts and there were a few! Overall, I’ll gladly put this one on my READ AGAIN E-SHELF. Told from dual POVs with a funny and sweet end.
Have you read this one? Have a GREAT day y’all!
