About this ebook

The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart. #thanksbutnothanks

Once bitten.

Twice shy.

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.

Note to readers: This book was previously titled Afternoon Delight (Charity Case #2).

I've enjoyed all of their books that I've read. I give this one only 3 1/2 stars for 2 reasons. First; her immediate re-atraction to her ex-husband isn't given enough emotional reasoning. It seems to sudden. Second, the grammatical & editing errors. Just about every time, they get the use of I & me, he & him wrong. Also, occasionally using the wrong form of a past tense word. Sometimes it's just the wrong word, felt instead of fell, for example. Takes you right out of the story evey time it happens. It's an enjoyable book, just not one of their best. It's still worth the read.

4.5* I’m just going to say it...Afternoon Delight was a delight. Plain and simple. It’s an engaging and heartfelt story that will have you believing in second chances. Chelsea and Dean’s young relationship was one that burned hot and fast, but burned out just as quickly. For the past five years Chelsea’s done her best to move on and put Dean out of her mind. Dean, on the other hand, has used the last five years to become a better man, someone deserving of the love Chelsea used to give him. And he’s determined to do whatever it takes to win her back. I really felt for both C & D in this case, as they each suffered so much at the end of their marriage that it was hard to imagine them being able to come back from everything. But that Dean is nothing if not persistent and I just adored the way he was unwavering in his pursuit to make Chelsea his again. Afternoon Delight ranks right up there as one of my favorite’s from Piper Rayne. I do enjoy me a good second chance romance and Dean and Chelsea’s story was right up my alley. I love when characters reconnect and you can just tell they are meant to be together, even with past dramas and heartaches. I love the fight for redemption and the surrender to forgiveness.

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Oh how I love Piper Rayne! I swear each book just gets better and better. I've loved every book they have released, but in my opinion, this is one of their best. Not only is it a second chance love story, but it also shows that even when things may seem like they are black and white, they rarely are and things happen for a reason when the time is right. Chelsea Walsh has had her share of heartbreak in her twenty five years and while she wants love in her life, she's always been attracted to the bad boy type and that is how she got her heart broken. Married at eighteen, she had found the love of her life, but then everything spiraled out of control and it ended in divorce. Lately, she's been on a string of failed dates with more "respectable" men, but they just don't light her fire like bad boys, or maybe it's one particular bad boy - her ex-husband. When she goes to a meeting with a tax attorney for her job at RISE, the last person Chelsea expects to come face-to-face with is the aforementioned ex-husband, Dean Bennett. The last time she'd seen Dean was the morning she walked out on him. Dean makes it clear that he wants another chance with her and that he never stopped loving her. While it's clear that the chemistry between the two is still alive and well, Chelsea is skeptical as ever that Dean could have changed enough for her to even consider making him a part of her life again. Will Dean be able to convince Chelsea to trust him again and prove that he's bettered himself in the last five years? Or will everything that happened during their short-lived marriage overshadow any chance these two have of a future? There was so much to love about this book! The characters were so well developed and we learned so much about each of them as the story went along that it wasn't hard to understand where both were coming from. They both have baggage, some of which we don't know about at first, which made the story that much richer because you *knew* there were more proverbial shoes left to drop. These two characters were fighters and not in the literal sense, but they weren't going to back down from what they wanted. In typical Piper Rayne fashion, the book was witty, sexy, romantic and entertaining. Truly one of the best books I've read so far this year. This was truly a delight to read and you won't regret one-clicking!
