So before getting to the book review, I realize that I’m running a little behind on getting my reviews written and published on the various fiction books that I’ve been reading lately. I think I’m either going to have to make a curated list and then re-read (or skim to refresh my memory), write the reviews and then slowly post them over the next few weeks-or start ‘fresh’ with the books that are coming out this month and move forward from there. Knowing how I do things–it may end up being a combination.
Now on to the book review:
My Rebound is the second book in the ‘On My Own’ series by Carrie Ann Ryan. This is a four book series that is following four roommates and their friends through the last two years of college (at least that is my take from reading the first two books). I’ve read teh first book (My One Night), and will be hopefully getting that review up on the blog as well soon.
My Rebound picks up shortly after the end of ‘My One Night’ and features Mackenzie and Pacey. What happens when you walk in on your boyfriend and catch him cheating?
Those long ago made plans start floating out the window, leaving Mackenzie wondering how is she going to ‘create’ new plans with an already overflowing semester?
Spring is here, and Mackenzie is looking for a rebound–here enters Pacey, friend and all around nice guy (with a secret or two of thier own).
What happens when they both become more emotionally involved than they originally planned?
The answers can be found within the pages of My Rebound.
I loved this book, and can’t wait for the next one, which focuses on Miles and Nessa. I like how Carrie Ann has spun such an interconnected world among her contemporary romance novels. While this is a stand-alone series, it is tied into her larger Montgomery Ink world via Dillon (from My One Night), who is the younger brother introduced in the Fractured Connection series, which branched off from the Montgomery Ink: Colorado Spring series.
Her books are great, because while it is a large world it doesn’t matter where you enter, you are introduced to a small set of characters and a large number of books and series to binge read on those days when you don’t want to deal with the real world.
I give My Rebound five out of five stars and highly recommend it to anyone who loves Carrie Ann Ryan’s books or is looking for a new romance author to try.
