Romance Book Review: Mr. Rebound
Publisher: Lyrical Press
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
After falling apart when her groom leaves her at the alter, Susan is wisked away to her Cancun honeymoon by her best friend Kevin. Kevin as always loved Susan, but never stood a chance with her. He moves on with his life, but being in close quarters with her, and her turning to him to make things better sparks fly.
Now back in the real world Susan is trying to get her world back in order, but forget about the man who left her at the alter, it is Kevin she misses. Can she get him back in her life before it is too late.
The story of the bride being left at the alter is a common theme, but Michael Cain's story does have some great lines, and great supporting characters. Susan's friend Liz is fun and her spunky assistant adds a nice touch.
The author does have a way with descriptive love scenes that make them erotic and romantic at the same time.
Groom dumps you at the altar? Fall in love with your hunky best friend.
When Susan is dumped at the altar—via cocktail napkin—it is up to her best friend Kevin to help her recover. After a brief post-wedding-that-wasn’t coma, Susan finds herself in paradise, on her honeymoon, but with Kevin, not her groom. After some crying, paragliding, frozen margaritas and bad advice from her other best friend Liz, Susan decides to seduce Kevin and get rid of her pain with a rebound fling.
Kevin has secretly loved Susan for years and finally giving into her cuts him deeper than he could have expected.
He leaves her and severs all contact with her until six months later, when they are both vying for the same account—designing Chicago’s new opera house.
Competition takes on a whole new meaning for Susan when Kevin shows up on the arm of her arch nemesis, the cougar Francesca Costa. She now must not only vie for the opera house...but for her best friend’s heart as well.
