The Breakup; The Jordan Brothers #2 (Series)
by Erin McCarthy (Author)
This review is from: August 13, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Have you ever been in a situation you wanted to get out of, but felt so backed into a corner that it just felt impossible to escape? Perhaps you had no one to call, no one to rely on because everyone in your life helped back you into that corner; your parents, your friends, your cheating fiancé, even the rules of society didn’t help. Your life was crashing in on you and you could barely breathe, who would you call?
In a state of panic Bella Bigelow called the only person that came to mind, Christian Jordan. He never should have been on her mind, but when you are running from your own wedding his face flashed before her eyes and without thinking she dialed his number. Before she knew what she was doing she jumped into his “getaway car” and she ran away from the only life she’d ever dreamed of. All she’d ever wanted was to be a wife and a mother and in an instant she threw it all away, but it was better than making the biggest mistake of her life, marrying a lying, cheating scumbag.
Christian Jordan was known for finding trouble. He was excellent at it. Bella Bigelow is trouble in every sense of the word. She’s beautiful, she’s rich, and she’s taken. Christian has his own problems raising his son without any support from the birth mother. He really doesn’t need more trouble in his life, but when it literally comes calling, he doesn’t say no. He is drawn to Bella in a way he hasn’t been drawn to anyone else before and the more time he spends with her the harder it is to walk away even when every instinct inside him says he should.
When all the cards are finally on the table for these two and it comes down to, should they progress as a couple, or was the time they spent together post runaway-bride-nightmare just a fling?
I read this book, not knowing it was book 2 of a series. Erin McCarthy is a pro and I had no trouble jumping right in and following along as if this was a standalone. Christian was extremely likeable, especially when he considered putting his family first and Bella’s worries and concerns are very realistic. A very enjoyable read.
