Misadventures with My Ex (Misadventures #18) by Shayla Black #BookReview #TBR #excerpt #Romance #ShaylaBlack #NewRelease #Misadventures #OneClick #AvailableNow #Review #PROMOTOUR #SecondChances #BookLovers

Can the ex who once broke her heart seduce her into happily ever after?

Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.

Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.

As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?



What's better than a new Shayla Black book? One that is part of the Misadventures series, that's what. This series is so much fun, if you haven't read any of the books yet no worries you can start right here. Each book is a standalone, novella sized romance that takes you on a journey of a Misadventure and in this case we have one with an EX so if the Second-Chance-at-Love is a favorite trope of yours your in luck.

Eryn and West have a complicated past, one more complicated than even Eryn knows. West broke off their engagement the morning of their wedding and hasn't spoken to Eryn since. To say she was devastated would be putting it mildly, it's been three years and not only has Eryn not moved on but it doesn't look like it will be happening anytime in the near future either.

Okay it has to be said that if you walk out on your bride on the day of your wedding you better have a damn good explanation and not just cold feet. This maybe a novella but I have to tell you I did not feel as if the story was rushed at all, we get the full explanation as to why things happened the way they did and what happened in the three years since. The chemistry between West and Eryn was amazing.....three years of missing one another added a WHOLE NEW LEVEL of heat to their flame.

This was a fun sexy quick read that can be enjoyed in just one afternoon. If you have read Misadventures of a Backup Bride you will remember Carson and Ella, Ella is Eryn's sister and they both make an appearance in this book, if you haven't no worries this is a standalone. This is an easy book to recommend for all lovers of contemporary romance that enjoy a good story with some heat. 
Happy Reading!!!

“You’re supposed to groom the way I want you to. It’s in the contract.”
That raises my alarm. “It’s not!”
“Oh, it is. Paragraph three, subparagraph six, clause B. You’re to be presentable to my satisfaction.”
“When we go out.” I’m positive that’s what I read. Well, almost...
West shakes his head. “I wrote three-quarters of it myself. I know exactly what it says.”
“You wrote most of that?”
He nods. “After I went home, I managed to finish my last semester of college at Columbia, then attended law school. While working as Quaid’s CEO.”
I blink. “You went to law school?”
“There’s a lot you don’t know about the last three years.”
“Whose fault is that?”
His face shutters closed as he reaches into his jeans for his cell. “I’m done arguing about this.”
With a puzzled frown, I watch as he sends a quick text. Almost immediately, he receives a reply. Then he smiles and tosses the device onto the nearest nightstand. “In the spa downstairs, Leona will clear up that landing strip at ten a.m. tomorrow.”
On one level, it’s heady that he cares about the state of my flesh he intends to use. On the other hand, I don’t understand his insistence to have me bare. “Why are you trying so damn hard to control everything, even the state of my pubic hair?”
“Because I want back the sexual compatibility we once had. I want the naked dinners and the lazy Sunday afternoons. I want the long, hot nights of lovemaking. I want—” He lets out a rough breath and shakes his head. “I want your pussy bare.”
That’s not the whole truth. I know West’s expressions too well. Oh, he wants to recreate something about our past. The question is why? And how much? But I’m guessing it’s not just the sex. Holy cow, is he looking to make me his girlfriend? His “fiancée” again? Maybe...but now that I’m thinking about it, two and two aren’t adding up.
