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…
(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)
This was a wonderful, hilarious read! I found myself laughing out loud getting curious looks from me reading. The antics that Austin does from the list provided by Avery’s boyfriend, Thatch’s best friend. The best is when Austin had to eat crow and ask help from Thatch to provide information for a blog she had to do for her class.
Austin has deep feelings for Thatch and can’t believe he cheated on her then broke up with her with no explanation. Thatch has feelings for Austin but feels he is protecting her from harm and more hurt. Once the two could get it together they work good as a team.
This a must read story and a definite reread for me.
