“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart?"

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancรฉ is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.

I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.
That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served beachside. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.
Right to the heart.

MY REVIEW

OhEmGee!! With friends like Whitney and Lennon, who the heck needs enemies?! I'm just kidding, they're awesome besties to Tahlia. But let me just say that the first time Tahlia and Lucas meet was surprisingly horrific because of some unintentional sabotage from her friends. Seriously, these three ladies are obviously the best of friends, almost sisterly, and they've got each others' backs.

Tahlia's ex-fiance cheated on her (we learned this first in The Bartender) and her friends gave her six months to wallow. Fed up with her misery, they encourage her to embrace life again. To go out, meet new people, and to move on already! Lucas ended up being a huge part of all of that. As a boxer, he was more of a bad boy and the complete opposite of what she was used to. He was everything she never knew she needed.

I really liked the development of a relationship between Lucas and Tahlia. It was incredibly realistic. But what I enjoyed the most was the solidarity between the characters, especially the besties, and how much they all loved each other, even if the love had to be tough. I'm looking forward to seeing all of these characters again in Lennon's book, The Banker.
