I loved the idea of this story and was excited to start "The Breakup". At first I found it dragged a bit and it took a while before I was really vested in the characters and what was happening to them. Soon, I was interested and wanted to know where this story was leading. Bella seemed to be a bit confused and with little confidence in herself. When she does finally start showing some backbone, she is tentative. Christian is opinionated and doesn’t come across well until you really start seeing underneath the bravado. There he is caring and protective. These two characters don’t seem as if they should go together and even at the end of the book I wasn’t sure if they were a good match. There were a lot of differences that were glossed over. While this was not what I had anticipated, it still was an okay story.
The Story: Bella is celebrating her upcoming marriage when she catches Christian’s eye. While he does like to have sex with almost every woman he meets, he’s going to step back from this one as his brother is dating her sister. Bella knows Christian’s reputation and when she learns her fiancé is cheating on her just days before her wedding, she turns to Christian to have some revenge sex. However, Christian isn’t interested. Could that be why Bella calls him when she decides to run away from her wedding?
Can two wrongs feel oh-so-right? This bride is about to find out—with the bad boy who makes an epic breakup worth her while.
Bella: I know I’m a princess. I’m used to getting what I want. But all I ever really wanted was a husband and a family. Unlike my sister, Sophie, I’ll never have a brilliant career to fall back on. So what’s a bride to do when she learns that Prince Charming is a cheating snake just a few days before her fairy-tale wedding? With my fiancé begging for another chance, the only way to save the wedding is to even things out with a little revenge sex—and local bartender Christian Jordan seems like the right man for the job.
Christian: If gorgeous Bella Bigelow thinks sleeping with me will somehow lead to happily ever after, I’m not going to turn her down. The guy she wants to marry is a jerk, and her sister is fooling around with my estranged twin brother, Cain. So what’s the problem—besides falling for a woman who doesn’t know what she wants out of life? All I want to do is whisk her away from that church, take her to a cabin in the woods, and act out all our naughtiest fantasies. And I may just get the chance. . . .
