Publisher's Summary

Someone once told me that there are worst things than being left at the altar. Well, not many, in my experience. That was six months ago, though, and my life has moved on. Heck, I have a new job lined up and I'm leaving town. 

But, I can't deny that my love life kind of sucks. 

That’s why I let my friends convince me to join them for Club Escapade’s Breakup Bash. And we might just be disillusioned enough to actually enjoy it. Last time we were here, it was for my bachelorette party. That night, I met one of the dancers - Raphael - and when he flirted with me, I almost forgot I was engaged. And there's a part of me that never forgot him. 

Now, it seems my friends have wandered off and I’m thinking about calling it a night. Until the music begins and I see Raphael, my secret fantasy, on stage. And this time, I’m definitely not engaged...

Alexa and Rafe get their chance at love

This book was an easy to listen to because the narrator had a great tempo and the storyline was interesting. Both Alexa and Rafe had a bad break up so they weren’t really looking for long term, just a good time for a while.

This story lightly touches on classism, abandonment issues but they didn’t overpower the romance and sexy part of the story. The main characters are likable and Alexa’s friends were fun. This was a good one.

Fun, quick romance

Short, sexy, and a nice amount of drama. This was a fun read, I liked the main characters Rafe and Alexa and the story moved at a good pace. Both protagonists have been through terrible relationships and aren't looking for anything serious. They have an immediate attraction and decide to just keep their relationship casual. Of course they click and develop feelings and have to work out what they truly want. The sex scenes were plentiful and hot and the drama was well done and not too much. Good narration helped make this even better.
