➦What do you do if your boyfriend kisses another woman in front of you?

➦You dump his sorry ass, that's what.

➦A little revenge is in order. Uploading an embarrassing video of him in an inebriated state should do nicely. Right?

➦Except, of course, if he can dish it out too. After all, he knows your fear of spiders. Oh well, too late.

Having really enjoyed RDV's "Cheater," I was really looking forward to reading this one. As expected, I totally enjoyed. RVD does rom-com like no other. But her characters are so lovable and funny. I just want to hang out with them. I also connected with them immediately and felt their pain, their struggles, their triumphs and their happiness.

While I had to laugh out loud at many of the conversations, I loved how Thatch and Austin worked through the difficulties of their relationship, even the m

My biggest mistake in our relationship wasn’t falling for Thatch; it was thinking that he needed me as much as I needed him.

Because when I touched him—my world felt full.
So how could it not feel that way for him?
How could he not feel the same?

So, like an idiot, I kissed him again—and sealed my fate against his mouth, knowing that his track record proved he was a cheater and that I didn’t have any part of him—even though he still held every pa

Okay guys, big surprise here but I'll once again tell you how much I love RVD. SERIOUSLY. She's one of my favourite authors. So once again, shocker, but I stayed up until 2am one night (morning?) just so I could finish this book. I didn't care about sleep. I didn't care that I had to be up in a few short hours, I cared about the fact that Thatch and Austin were in a bit of a tizzy and I needed all of the answers! I needed all of the smirks and the swoons and the laughs! And boy of boy did Rachel ...more
Thatch has smooched someone else, on purpose (and for a reason that we won’t know until the end) in order to end a relationship that wrecks him both in a good and bad way.

Make no mistake - it's a cowardly act that has him trying every which way to remedy but fails, until things do come to a head. That in a nutshell, is the start of the drama and admittedly, it’s not that often an author would go so boldly into the murky waters of writing about the aftermath.

The brazen title drew me to this sto

I've been a fan of this author for what seems like forever. I just love her writing style that whenever I started reading it, I'm sure I'll be hooked and get to enjoy every moment. When she started this series, I was so curious that I cannot wait to read the first one, much more when it created a buzz. It was so different from RVD's books, but rocked all the same.

This is the second book in the Curious Liaisons series. This is the story of the secondary characters from the first book, Thatch and Austin. In the first book, we get a glimpse of their relationship and the cheating that happens but here it is more in detail. Austin wants to know why Thatch cheated on her and she will not let go until she finds some answers. Of course, there will be a lot of mice and cat games between the two adding lots of

Cheater’s Regret by Rachel Van Dyken is a sexy, fast-paced romance that weaves humor, second chances, and friendship. If you have read the first book, then you are all aware that Thatch and Austin share a history. A history that is mixed with love and hurt. Hurt especially when Austin catches Thatch kissing her best friend’s older sister. So what happens when Thatch and Austin are reunited? Will these two be able to forgive and love a

For the first half, this could have been called Cheater's Revenge. The antics that Austin came up with to torture Thatch with were hilarious! I loved this addition to the Curious Liaisons series by Rachel Van Dyken and hope she has another couple waiting in the wings for their story to be told.

"Cheater's Regret was a sexy, romantic, tug of war! Funny, spirited, and the perfect weekend read!" ~Audrey Carlan, #1 NYT Bestselling Author
What a great delivery from Rachel Van Dyken.

Apart from being a really good story, there were a lot of laugh out loud moments despite the title.

Yes, there is cheating in this book BUT not the way you expect it.

This was good, very good and a recommended read.

So I hate to admit this but I did not read the first book in this series, which is so unlike me because I am HUGE RVD fan. But I saw more than enough "meh" reviews on it that I was not enticed enough to read it - the blurb didn't even really snag me either. But I wanted to read this book because the blurb did catch my eye and now even with the "meh" reviews of the first one, I am still going to go back and read that one.

Cheater's Regret is the second standalone in the Curious Liaisons series by Rachel Van Dyken. The first book in the series, Cheater, was one of my favorite romantic comedies this year and I have to say I LOVE Cheater's Regret even more! I loved these character, their struggle and their path to love. Rachel knows just how to take a fun simple rom com and hook m e fast and make my heart become instantly attached.

Nada pior do que a vingança de uma mulher rejeitada.
Ela até rasga os pneus do carro dele e rouba as roupas dele no vestiário do trabalho dele. Ela é bem infantil nos proporcionando cenas bem engraçadas.
Mesmo traída ela ainda quer ele de volta, afinal ela ama ele demais.
Nosso herói continua rejeitando ela mas logo nós descobrimos que existem motivos ocultos para este comportamento.
A história me fisgou completamente e só terminei a leitura de madrugada.
Recomendo a leitura!

Austin Rogers-- daughter of Seattle's mayor, rich, and gorgeous. She may have everything she wants in life, but she's still craving for one thing her money can't buy: attention. Until one night, a hot, blue-eyed, surfer looking guy showed her how it feels to be the center of one's attention. She was hopeful that Thatch was "it" for her, but he broke her heart... right in front of her.

I enjoyed Austin and Thatch. I like books that explore things that aren't perfect, or relationships with people who are not perfect, and this one did this well.

Thatch cheated on Austin. She saw it, he admits it. And, as a reader you know really fast that it happened. The book is about dealing with it, and from both sides. From the side of the person who was wronged and the side of the person who did the cheating. It's tough to go into this

Austin & Thatch = Thatchtin!

If you could sum up Cheater's Regret in three words, what would they be?

Sweet, sexy revenge!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cheater's Regret?

Cheater's Regret features the story of Austin and Thatch, they met in the previous book of the series, and what started as a one night stand, quickly turned into a serious relationship until Thatch cheated on Austin and despite she wanted to forgive him for his acti

Words would never do justice to this... but I am still going to try...!! RVD has always been my favorite author so far and I have never been disappointed reading her books... this is proven again by Cheater's Regret... Don't believe me? Read For Yourself.. I swear you will love every min of it... you are going love, laugh, and feel sad and happy..

RVD has this unique way of always adding up spice, drama and loads of humorous situations in her books that you are bound to laugh, and cry at the same

I always enjoy Rachel Van Dyken, but I wasn't in love with the first book in this series. This second book, however, was fabulous.

Probably a lot of that was due to the narration by Alexander Cendese. Talk about amazing - this guy got the character so spot on that I wanted more after the book ended. He interpreted Thatch perfectly, so between his narration and the writing I was laughing and thoroughly enjoying the story.

First of all....big fan of Rachel Van Dyken. The cover on this book-- SEXY! Cheater’s Regret was a fantastic read. Sucked me in from the first page. I immediately fell in love with Thatch and Austin. Their story was funny, passionate, sexy and FULL OF ROMANCE!!

If you like friends to lovers’s book than Cheater’s Regret is for you!
A little birdie told me...
A reader should like a heroine in a book, right? I mean I learned to like her, but it's all about the first impressions. Those first few pages did not win any respect in her favor, and the few after that were not much better. (Plus her name kept throwing me... I know it sounds sexist of me, but I kept picturing a boy since the only Austins I know are male.)

I almost abandoned the book, and for that, it lost the stars. It did get better once the immaturity of the revenge plot faded away. That reve
