Peek Inside The Last Rule of Makeups

Cori Ross is thanking her lucky stars. Sure, her long-time boyfriend just dumped her, but that’s a good thing. In her rush to find Mr. Right, she realizes she almost settled for Mr. Just Okay. And that’s definitely not okay. So, tonight, she’s out with her friends at the Breakup Bash—a private party for women celebrating their break-ups—and she’s actually celebrating. Still, it was too close a call. So she makes a deal with herself—no guys for six months.

Unfortunately, just as she’s leaving the club, she runs into her old boyfriend, Grey Latham—the guy she’d always wanted to be Mr. Right. Great. What a time to swear off guys. Maybe she needs to change the deal—no relationships for six months. There’s no reason why she can’t have a fling, right? Because Grey still holds the title of the best sex she’s ever had.

There’s no way this could go wrong. Grey is on his way to international DJ fame—he’s only in town for a short time, and then he’ll be gone again. No harm in burning up the sheets while it lasts.

Too bad neither expected what happened next...

Each book in the Breakup Bash series is STANDALONE:
* The First Rule of Hook-Ups
* Rules of a Rebound
* The Last Rule of Makeups

so I am assuming this is the last book to this group of girls. We had four women who had some bad situations, t bad relationship but were able to overcome them because they were never alone, they had each other to cry with, have fun with and generally just be the friend when you need them. We have C ...more

The Last Rule of Makeups is the third book in Nina Crespo's Breakup Bash series and features Cori, who, after being dumped by her long-term boyfriend Kevin attends a breakup bash with friends Alexa and Nat, and decides that the best way to get over her ex is to get under someone else. And that someo ...more

By Sara September 26, 2020

The Last Rule of Makeups by Nina Crespo a pleasing four-star read. This is number three in the Breakup Bash series, but they can be read as a stand-alone as I haven’t read all of the previous stories only one and I don’t feel like I missed anything. Cori Ross was such a complex woman, she has been b ...more

By Glittergirl October 03, 2020

This story surprised me. It's one of my favorite romance themes, second chance. This became a much more involved story than I expected and I found I quite enjoyed it. The back and forth of will they make it or won't they was believable and real. There was so much to overcome in such a short period o ...more

Cori is out for a night of celebration after her boyfriend of two years ends their relationship. She runs into another ex boyfriend named Grey. Grey is in town after a tragic event and has other plans. The two end up hooking up for just sex but the fire is still there after all this time. Can they o ...more

"How do you feel about us continuing to see each other?" She just needed to make one thing clear to him. "I'd like that. As long as we keep it casual. I just came out of a relationship, so I'm not looking for anything long-term right now."

Nat meant those words. Her last relationship took a toll on h ...more

Second chance romance gets a great, steamy story in this latest book from Nina Crespo. Cori and Grey are fantastic characters that the reader can’t help rooting for.

Cori and her besties are attending a party promoted as the “Breakup Bash.” Cori is still recovering from her breakup with her long ter ...more

Everyone has a well-loved trope. One of my tip-top most beloved tropes is second chance romance. I get all the super, mega, ultra heart eyes just typing that out. So not only was this cover a massive READ ME NOW to me, but the premise was as well.

Sadly, I’ve come to a place where I don’t trust eithe ...more

Nina Crespo is a new-to-me author in the sense that I had never read one of her books…until now. I’ve seen her name a lot around the romance book community, and I know several people who really like her writing, so I thought it was time to dive into one of her books for myself to see what’s what. Th ...more

Received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.
This the third book in a series but you can read each book as a standalone.

This is the first time I read a work of this author, and I'm very pleased with my experience. It's fairly short but it doesn't feel rushed, and it certainly reads like a 300-p ...more

About the book:
When Cori Ross' steady two year relationship comes to a grinding halt, she realizes she may have been settling. A lot. In order to make sure the next guy she dates into isn't a total bust, she tells herself no relationships for six months. But just as she makes the promise, her old bo ...more

This romance novel was a perfect cozy fall read, and I almost finished the entire book in one night.

Cori felt like her life had been upended after she left her long-term relationship. She had expected the world out of her relationship with her boyfriend, and he instead decided to move away and dump ...more

This is the third installment of the Breakup Bash Series.  Cory Ross her ex-boyfriend dated for 2 years when he decided that their relationship would not work because he was no longer happy, and to make it worst he took the coward way out by doing it over the phone. After each break up the gi ...more

A sweet and sexy second chance romance!

Once upon a time (OK, it was in college ;) ) Cori and Grey were in a relationship. He asked her to move to Texas with him, and she agreed--only to back out for reasons she didn't really explain to him at the ti ...more

This third installment of the Breakup Bash series was as enjoyable as Breakup Bash Book 2 but it definitely went in a direction that I didn't expect. Since all three books are considered stand alone stories it's not necessary to read the previous ones but I do enjoy learning all the back stories inv ...more

Nina Crespo is a new author to me. Love her characters and her writing style and the cover model is awesome. Love the “Last Rule Of Makeups”. This is a great second chance romance which is one of favorite troupes. Seconds chances work sometimes and sometimes they don’t. This was a short read that ke ...more

By Elaine October 12, 2020

This is a steamy, second-chance romance and, although the third in a series, can be read as a standalone - I haven't read the previous two books and still enjoyed this.

When Cori Ross is dumped by the boyfriend she'd been living with for more than two years, she realises that she's actually had a luc ...more

By Deborah September 26, 2020

I am a fan of the Breakup Bash series by Nina and so glad that I got to read Cori’s story. All the books in the series can be read as standalone because they all go back to the night of the breakup bash that Cori and her friends attend. Cori attends the breakup bash because her boyfriend of 2 years ...more

By Kelly-Jo October 01, 2020

Second chance romances can either be really good, or really bad. Fortunately, this was a good one. For them to work for me, there needs to be a good reason why the couple split up in the first place and a good reason why they might try again. For the couple in The Last Rule of Makeups, Grey and Cori ...more

Judge this book by its cover!

Seriously! I totally judged this book by how hot the cover was and I was not disappointed! This is the third book in the Breakup Bash Series by Nina Crespo and it was delicious! This book starts out with Cori hanging out with her friends Alexa and Nat at the Breakup Bash ...more

I really enjoyed reading The Last Rule of Makeups, Book 3 in the Breakup Bash series. Each book can be read as a standalone. I will need to revisit Book 1, The First Rule of Hookups, as it's been a while since I first read it and I don't know how I missed Book 2, Rules of a Rebound, but I will defin ...more

By Traci October 13, 2020

The Last Rule of Makeups is the third book in the Breakup Bash series, but it was great as a stand-alone. It was a short book, but the characters and storyline were developed. It was well written, fast-paced, and caught my attention right away. The characters were charming and easy to connect with. ...more

This is an interesting second chance at love book. These two characters and their random meet up outside of a club is super cute. The trip to the beach house was great, it really started to show how their relationship was developing and we could see the potential between these two. However the truth ...more

I thought this 2nd chance romance was pretty sweet. Truly a "meant to be" journey.
Cori had just been settling for these past six years, in romance, in work, in her whole life it seemed. Grey, her love from six years ago, came back into town, and neither one had really gotten over the other. They st ...more
