Rachel Bradford is finally living her dream as the star of her own interior design show. But ratings are slipping, and if she wants to save the show, she has to set an episode in the hometown she fled. Worst of all, she’s going to have to work with the cocky bad boy who humiliated her.

Single dad, Beckett Colburn plans to turn an old fire station into a neighborhood bar. He’s blindsided when he discovers his family made a deal to turn his dream into a reality TV project. He’d rather run into a burning building than work with his childhood nemesis--on camera.

But it’s not easy with a TV crew in town stirring up trouble, spreading rumors, creating buzz. Not to mention the inconvenient sudden attraction that sparks every time Rachel and Beckett fight.


“Moore does it again, I always, always enjoy her books. Her storytelling resonates in all the good ways. She crafts layered, interesting stories that don't hold back on the passion many of us over the age of 40 experience on the regular!” --Frolic Media

“The Goodbye Guy by Natasha Moore a five-star read that will bring brightness to your life.” --Sara O., Goodreads

This cute little romance is full of tropes. Seasoned romance, hate to love, second chance, & single dad all rolled into one. And you know what? It's awesome! It all works perfectly in this story.” -Heidi S., NetGalley

A wonderful small-town romance!” --Diane M., Goodreads

“It's such a fun read. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The characters, the settings, and the story are all perfect. It's one of the best romance novels I have read this year. It has enough drama, intrigue, and romance to keep readers entertained without overdoing anything.” --Fizza Y., NetGalley

Fun read, engaging characters and well-paced.” --Nicola B., Goodreads

The Goodbye Guy is the third book in Natasha Moore’s The Men of Lakeside series. They are all standalone titles and can definitely read as such. I haven’t read any other books in this series and never felt like I was lost or didn’t quite follow a part of the storyline.
