Summary

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken returns with a smoking-hot story about the satisfaction of plotting revenge on your ex - until he turns your world upside down again.

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...

very enjoyable and funny

I really enjoyed this audio book. Both narrators were excellent, I think their voices especially Alexander doing a women's voice added to the humour. The story was funny, light hearted but had enough depth and drama to keep it engaging all the way through.

Not As Good…

I had such good hopes about this story and listened to it immediately after finishing its predecessor; but the storyline felt weak, the plot poor and my general feeling was of incredulity.

I'm worried that real relationships could peter out in this way - with an intense lack of communication - but if they can and do, I don't see how they can ever be successfully resolved, because this didn't satisfy that curiosity.

I also didn't really like the voices of the narrators , especially his, but that didn't totally detract from the book. However, I couldn't wait for this one to be finished. It still had some funny moments towards the end, but it was a struggle getting there...

I got these books as part of my Kindle Unlimited subscription. That is the only way to enjoy this book, in my opinion. However, the first book in the series is my favourite, this isn't even a close second. But still listen to it, if you've already listened to the first & make up your own mind.

Best read of 2017

After being recommended to this book a few times and hearing mixed reviews I thought I would give it a go. And it did not disappoint.
Even after the first few sentences I was hooked. I felt you really got to know each character and what they were about. Would definitely recommend this book to anyone! And the sister book "Cheater" is just as good too!

Cheater's Regret

This book was as good as the first, different but still good. When I was listening to book 1, I was hoping it was a part two. And I am glad there was a part two. Awesome read.

A great romcom audiobook!

I really enjoyed this romcom. Not everything is as it seems.. I loved the banter between Thatch and Austin as well as their chemistry, hot!! I really liked the narrators Lucy Rivers and Alexander Cendese.

Another GREAT one by Rachel!

I was asked by the author for an honest review.

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…

Rachel is one of my favorite authors! I loved this book! This series is freaking hilarious! I loved this story and I have truly enjoyed this book. It is well written and I can't wait to see what's next! If you love a funny romance book try this series! This series has kept me rolling on the floor dying laughing.

Awful

Too painful to even finish. This isn't a romance novel, it's a terrible attempt at comedy. Even cracking bad jokes during what's suppose to be the romantic parts. I hate leaving bad reviews but this book really earned it 👎🏼

Nice listen

The story was good.
Not too much self chatter.
Smooth transition from the other book.
Narrators were good, if you don’t get the right ones they can really turn the listener off.

4 Stars

I found this one to be just as good as the first book in the series. Thatch and Austin have great chemistry and banter with each other. Both are afraid of relationships because of watching their parents relationship growing up. This book will make you laugh out loud. It will keep you entertained.

So I Have Double Standards --Oops!

You wouldn't think this would be such a funny book, with a title like that, but it is. I picked it up in the middle of a heavy, brutal sci-fi novel for a bit of light, easy reading. I read the first book in this series sometime last year, but I never got around to this one.

It turns out that I have double standards when it comes to cheaters. In the real world, I'm pretty annoyed by their selfishness, immaturity, and lack of communication skills. In book world, I'm totally fascinated by what makes them tick, and how they got themselves into these situations.

This starts out as a revenge scenario, with Austin getting back at Thatch for kissing another girl in front of her. Then it moves sideways into an adorably sweet romance with some parent drama. There are a few things that happened that made me laugh out loud. One scene in particularly, had me giggling for the better part of 5 minutes. So either this book is really hilarious, or my judgement becomes impaired after midnight, since I stayed up and read this one straight through.

It's not mind-blowing or world changing, but that's why I enjoyed it. I needed an easy read with an HEA.
