The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart. #thanksbutnothanks
Yeah, I wish.
I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.
It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.
As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.
I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.
Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…
He’s my ex-husband.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Yes! I loved this book! Actually I love all Piper Rayne books. That said, Afternoon Delight includes one of my favorite heroes! I love you, Dean! ❤
We met Chelsea in the previous book, Manic Monday. From that book, we learn that Chelsea is divorced and her ex broke her heart. She has nothing nice to say about him but she sure does say a lot of not so nice things. So from there, I inferred that he was a jerk that broke her heart but I didn’t know why or what happened to end their marriage. Because of that, I really didn’t have preconceived ideas of the type of man he was. I am so glad I didn’t judge and condemn him before even meeting him. Dean is one of the best!
Dean is a tax attorney in the same city that Chelsea lives and works in. It is a coincidence when she walks into his office to deliver some paperwork for her boss and sees him for the first time in years.
Or is it?
Dean is very cocky and arrogant. And the man is the epitome of a dirty talker. From the moment they are in the same room together, the sparks are flying. Dean wants another chance with Chelsea. She is the love of his life and wants her back. Chelsea is determined that that will never happen.
I can’t say much more here with our spoiling this story for you. I will say that Dean was so perfect when he wasn’t perfect before. He is sexy, yes. But he is also, sweet, romantic, and persistent. And his persistence and patience will eventually be rewarded, but not without working for it.
This couple had me swooning, smiling, laughing and even blushing. I loved every interaction between them. There are a lot of secondary characters in this book that add even more depth. Both Chelsea and Dean are complex characters. And while Dean had his faults, I will also say that Chelsea had her own as well. They both have grown a lot in the years that followed their divorce. Now it’s time they both find their happily-ever-afters. With each other, of course.
Again, I will say how much I loved this book. Loved Dean and Chelsea together. There is another book in this series I can’t wait to read as well. Not only to enjoy the newest couple finding their HEA, but to visit with Chelsea and Dean again.
I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves love and laughter with a bit of angst and a swoon-worthy ending.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
