Rules of a Rebound (Breakup Bash Book 2) by Nina Crespo


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.


She wasn’t interested in a serious relationship, and she didn’t have the bandwidth in her life for a time-consuming fling. Work was her priority.

Natalie was getting over a messy divorce and thought she just wanted a one-night stand, but that same night she came home to a robbery and Rome was there for her when she needed someone.  So they agreed on an “extended hookup with benefits” until her burglar alarm was installed. Why didn’t she want that day to happen anytime soon?

No. It wasn’t his place to determine what she needed. That part of his life, protecting others and advising them on how to protect themselves, was over. She shouldn’t be in the house alone. That was why he stayed.

When Rome took Natalie home that night she found her house had been broken into and her dog was missing. He stayed with her because of the shock of being robbed.  Or was it something more?

Natalie and Rome’s sexy and confident personalities work well together and when their vulnerabilities get the best of them, they stumble but work it out.

Book 2 of the Breakup Bash series can be read as a standalone.  It is a sensual and scintillating novel with two strong and lonely people trying to mend and get on with their lives. A fun and sexy read!

Thank you to Ms. Crespo, Entangled Publishing, and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.
