    Synopsis |

    “Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

    I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

    Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

    Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it...

    So does heartbreak.

    “Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.



    I didn’t even put two and two together that this was a spin-off from The Darkest Sunrise duet until I read a few reviews about this one. And it has been a while since I read that duet, but I remember all the feels that story gave me. So I was rather thankful that this story didn’t take that route because I’m not so sure my heart would have handled that. Even though I enjoyed this story, it didn’t quite hit the mark as it did with previous Aly Martinez books that I have read.

    Everything between Rita and Tanner was hot and fast, and I was so darn nervous about everything that could go wrong. With Rita dealing with a heartbreaking divorce from a man who was having an affair, being broken and angry are one of the few things running through her mind. And in swoops Tanner to completely alter each other’s lives in a way they didn’t expect. Their connection is intense and undeniable and just happens so quickly. It’s so evident that they’re perfect for each other, but the timing causes some doubt in Rita’s mind wondering if Tanner is a rebound guy.

    But my goodness, you’ll never meet a man so certain about someone. He was such a goner as soon as he met Rita and his mind was made up. He knew that he wanted her and there wasn’t anything that would stop him. There’s nothing easy about their story, we have Rita’s idiotic and very much an asshole ex who just thinks he can get her back. And Tanner has a secret of his own that he should have been open about from the very beginning. It seemed a little bit unnecessary for him to hold it in for that long. I understood his reasons, but it was drama that they didn’t need to add to their already crazy situation.

    Overall, a good love story that so many will enjoy, but there were things here and there that kept me from loving it!
