Title: Mr. Rebound
Author: Kat T Masen
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 30
Moving across the country was supposed to be a fresh start. I’d made mistakes, but I told myself I’d no longer prey on emotionally unstable women. I don’t do relationships—I’m a selfish bastard that enjoys not answering to anyone—and relationships mean being with only one woman. More often than not, one that carries emotional baggage, like cheating exes or worse—kids.
After landing myself in trouble, again, my cousin Charlie dared me to settle down with one woman. I’m not one to shy away from a dare, so I chose Scarlett Winters, the most wanted actress in Hollywood. The sexiest woman on Earth.
I just needed to get past the roadblock—her assistant, Morgan Bentley.
The wicked bitch of the west.
Between her multiple personalities and the giant stick up her ass, I should’ve seen it coming. I’d been with enough women to read the signs. Morgan Bentley was after one thing, and one thing only. A rebound.
That’s me, right?
But what if this time I wanted more?
Oh, how the mighty fall! I always love the set up in these kind of books. The beginning is all about how the guy is this womanizer who has no plans to settle down like the poor schmucks around him. He never has a repeat performance with the same woman and leaves a trail of very satisfied “customers” in his wake. Noah is no different. But he royally screwed up this time and hooked up with the wrong women. The first being the reason his life fell apart back home. The second? Well…she brought him to his knees.
This is my first Kat Masen read, and I absolutely will be adding her others to my TBR list. I didn’t think I would enjoy the single male point of view, but I loved it. We do get a glimpse of Morgan’s perspective in one chapter that gives us a brief look into her life and why she’s holding back. And this is key to the rest of their story. It was great seeing the world through Noah’s eyes, living his change in attitude, and feeling his emotions. Boy did I feel those emotions keenly. I was just as frustrated with Morgan’s distancing herself from him and almost in tears for the pain he felt towards the end. Even though he was always the womanizer, I felt bad for the guy. He’d finally found the woman who would change his life forever, and he couldn’t have her the way he wanted. Noah was forced to make some hard decisions. He could either let Morgan go or accept the woman that she was, baggage and all.
I liked so many things about Noah and Morgan’s love story—their first meeting, the flirting, the cause of their separation, and their reconciliation. I also enjoyed Noah’s heartbreak. It’s usually the woman having the “girl’s night in” with her friends, crying, eating ice cream, and watching sappy movies. Not this time! LOL! The friendships and family interactions are stellar and quite comedic. All of the characters are likable and realistic. I would love to hang out with them. Kat built the perfect road to happily ever after for Noah and Morgan. It was definitely an interesting, entertaining, and unique journey.
