Natalie Winters thought she’d married the man of her dreams…but her marriage ended way too soon in a nightmarish divorce. She even has to share custody of the dog! The stress is killing her, so she decides to take a night off and attend the Breakup Bash—a private party for women celebrating their breakups—with her friends.

Former executive security specialist turned bartender Rome Collier is drawn to the woman easily trading sexy banter with him. And if she wants the “Do Me” condoms she accidentally throws across the counter at him, she’ll have to claim them…personally. Their flirtation turns into so much more, and every scintillating night they spend together is better than the last.

Strong, protective...and hot, Rome is everything Natalie ever wanted in a man. All she has to do is convince him he’s more than a rebound.

Each book in the Breakup Bash series is STANDALONE:
* The First Rule of Hook-Ups

3.5 Stars.

What do you do when you’re newly divorced and very single? Have fun, crazy, no-strings rebound sex.

I really liked this book and how the two main characters met. The party at the club is fun way to introduce these two. Their chemistry is off the charts from the first time their eyes meet.

Rules of a Rebound by Nina Crespo follow the first of this series The First Rule of Hook-ups. With that being said this is an easy stand alone novel.

Oh, hot pocket!!! This was a steamy book. The story started quickly throwing me into a weird situation where the main character happens to be the only person in the packed bar that the bartender thinks is worth his time and of course they have sex right off the bat. If you can get past the quick as ...more

4.5 Star review of Rules Of A Rebound (Break Up Bash #2) by Nina Crespo

Nina Crespo is a relatively new author to me. Rules Of A Rebound is not a particularly long book but Ms. Crespo certainly kept me entertained. This is Natalie Winters and Rome Collier’s story and what a great story it was.

Natalie thought that she was marrying the man she would have for the rest of her life. What she got was a nightmare in the form of a cheating ex who took out his misgivings and lack of success on her. She never expected that going to a breakup bash would put her in contact with her future. Rome was ...more

Steamy story. Sweet. Easy read.
Natalie and Rome... they hooked up while she’s at a rebound bash after a terrible divorce. Their relationship was slam-bam (in all senses); very sudden, unexpected and then they were in a relationship neither planned for. There were nods to both of them having histori ...more

Original Review @

Ain’t even gonna lie.

I was a sucker for this book's excerpt reveal. The moment Natalie and Rome locked eyes on each other, my room temperature rose at least ten degrees. The cover didn’t hurt either. Rome Collier’s dark good looks melt that page.

And just like that ...more

"She wasn’t interested in a serious relationship, and she didn’t have the bandwidth in her life for a time-consuming fling. Work was her priority."
