Publication date: June 15th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Charlotte Hart will do anything to escape the life she once adored, even if that means moving in with a mysterious guy from her past.
When the girl who saved Max Archer’s life shows up on his doorstep, he knows he can’t turn her away.
Neither of them can let go of their pasts. Both of them are living a lie. If they can’t figure out how to rebound, they’re destined to crash and burn.
I'm not sure if my mother predestined me to become a romance author when she named me after her favorite Kathleen Woodiwiss book, but that's what happened. Now I live and breathe all things books. When I'm not glued to my desk writing, I can be found eating too much chocolate, obsessing over Game of Thrones, and cyber stalking my favorite authors. Keep up with me on Facebook and Instagram. I love hearing from readers!
Just as good as the first book, Rebounding was an emotional and highly enjoyable read. The book follows Charlotte, who we met in Pretending, and Max. I would definitely recommend reading Pretending before you read this so you can get the full story about what happened to Charlotte.
I didn't really like Charlotte before as she came across as a bit of a bitch but I began to like her in this. I really felt for her and what happened to her. I'm trying not to say what happened cause I don't want to spoil the first book for those that haven't read it. I really liked that she tried to gain some independence and get away from her family and her town. It took her a while but as they say, old habits die hard.
Max I really liked. He tried to come across as distant and cold but really he was a sweetheart. My heart absolutely broke for him for what he has gone through and was still going through. The two of them had great chemistry, they were perfect for each other.
I did enjoy Pretending more because of the treasure hunting aspect but I still enjoyed this one too. A great series with a great cast of characters! Would defo recommend to all you NA contemporary lovers out there :)
