I thought I had it all. The perfect man. The perfect life. The perfect everything. Until he left me on our honeymoon. My perfect life changed in the blink of an eye. I didn't need a man. Getting laid whenever I wanted with no strings attached was better than a complicated relationship.

But my hate for men soon changed the day Drake strolled into my bakery. All muscles and

Not my favorite book

In not sure how I feel about this book. I thought Bree was a bit no a lot flakey. She was an owner of a bakery but acted like a bimbo. Went out every night drinking and getting high. I felt bad when her husband cheated on her but she was such a flake.

This book has an incredible amount of 4 and 5 stars for this book so I had high hopes that this was going to be one I liked.

I found Bree to very difficult to connect with. (view spoiler) is not something that I can relate to.

Bree walks in on her husband with another women on her honeymoon. Bree leaves him and 'gets her life together' (view spoiler)

I was given an Advanced Readers Copy without compensation. I loved this book about 2nd chances when you least expect it. The main characters Bree is like so many who have been burned by someone they loved. Drake is another main character who is afraid of being judged for his past. Lyssa Cole has captured the emotional fall out of betrayal perfectly in this Romantic Drama filled book! Great Read!

This book was so good! I loved everything about it. the characters, the story were like crack and I had so much fun reading it! Bee and Drake are awesome together and their chemistry is off the charts! I love stories where there are secrets but the characters manage to get past them! If you want an awesome book to read, I highly recommend this one! you won't regret it!

Okay what the fuck! I seem to be in a dialogue slump. First we had the book featuring a marriage proposal complete with ring sizing chat now we have this one where the hero shares his history and casually mentions his dad was a drug lord forcing the family to move a lot and his mom and grandmother are on a modern day “grand tour” blowing all of daddy’s blow money. And how does heroine respond “oh wow that’s interesting. What’s good to eat here?” Uh hello did I miss the part where her childhood w ...more

An absolutely thrilling romance. An absolutely amazing read!!
Not For Me.

Let me preface my review by noting that I am the line voice of dissent.

Did you ever read the reviews for a book you've just finished and wondered if people are even talking about the same book? None of the 40+ reviews mention the mixed up tenses, the wrong words used, the poor punctuation and grammar, the numerous inconsistencies. There was so much wrong that I couldn't help but be dragged out of any enjoyment of the story. And the story itself? That was heavily laden with coincidence
Tish (Cocktails & Fairytales)
4.5 stars. This was a very sweet second chance romance. Honeymoons are suppose to be about love, romance and the start of a life but sadly for Bree that is the complete opposite of what hers was. Then Drake shows up and tries to help her forget about her heartbreak and learn to trust and love again. A little slow to start but then things really got interesting and I didn't want to put it down.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily

**3.5 Stars**

Two years ago, Bree was forced to start her life over. How? Well, when you catch your husband in the act of cheating, on your honeymoon and in your bed no less, of course she wouldn't want to go home, the place that was theirs. Nope, you legally remove the jerkoff from your life and then move on...albeit painfully as you slowly begin healing. Ever since, if she's built a formidable wall around her heart, you can't blame her. At least one good thing came out of her heartbreak, her ba

This story was adorable. It starts off with you being heartbroken and angry for the heroine, Bree who catches her husband on there honeymoon with another woman. This of course makes it easy to hate her husband, Kyle through the rest of the book. After the honeymoon from Hell, Bree walks away and you fast forward two years. Bree is funny, sweet and has surrounded herself with an amazing posse of girlfriends which is really prevalent during her funny interactions at her bakery. I really love that ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This book is an absolute gem! This was a beautiful love story of second chances that was so well done; it held my attention and was entertaining, but also was heartwarming and emotional. Emotions that come from letting go of the past and looking toward the future. I loved the storyline and the characters of Bree and Drake, and how the romantic relationship builds between the two. Together, their banter is refreshing and will make you lau

It's my first book by this author, and I liked it!
It's a fast read, but oh, so sweet and hot!
It's written in Bree's pov, but we get to "hear" Drakes thoughts. For me, that was something new, just hear his thoughts and not read it from his pov. And I liked it!

We meet Bree, a hard working woman. Somewhat happy with her life. Good girlfriends, lovely parents and a blooming business. But with a broken heart. But hey, who wouldn't have a broken heart after what her husband did to her? I don't think I
