Publisher Description

Beautifully written characters, honest and true emotions and a lovable storyline that had me hooked from the opening pages.” ~The Overflowing Bookcase

Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.

Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.

As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX is Shayla Black’s second contribution to the multi-author Misadventures series. This is café owner Eryn Hope, and twenty-four year old, businessman Weston Quaid’s story line. All of the Misadventures story lines are stand alone story lines. MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX continues to focus on the Hope sisters. We were first introduced to Eryn and her sisters in Ella’s book - Misadventures of a BackUp Bride.

Told from dual third person perspectives (Eryn and West) MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX follows the second chance relationship between café owner Eryn Hope, and twenty-four year old, businessman Weston Quaid. Three years earlier Weston Quaid destroyed Eryn Hope’s heart just hours before walking down the aisle. Fast forward to present day wherein Weston makes Eryn an offer she cannot refuse in light of the devastation and pain caused years before. Eryn’s business is about to be shut down for renovations and repairs, and with no source of income for herself or her employees, Weston offers Eryn a six week contract for which Eryn’s financial obligations will be covered and cared. What ensues is the rebuilding but acrimonious relationship between Eryn and West, and the potential fall-out as Eryn’s struggles with issues of trust are made more difficult by someone determined to destroy Eryn’s heart-once again.

Eryn Hope has never stopped loving Weston Quaid but the path of devastation left behind with his disappearance and no explanation years before finds our heroine battling between head and heart knowing Weston still has the power to crush her heart. Weston Quaid never knew loss like that of losing Eryn Hope but behind the scenes battle for company control, and threats against the woman he loved forced West to walk away with his own broken heart.

The relationship between Eryn and Weston is a rekindling romance; a second chance between two people destroyed by power, greed, threats and control. But herein lies the difficult or challenging part (for me) of the story line premise: West’s approach to getting Eryn back is all kinds of wrong including a legal contract that all but screams paid wh*re and mistress for as long as he wants. I am not a fan of ‘forced’ servitude or ‘forced’ $ex when a woman is desperate to keep food on the table or a roof above her head…and in this, the story line premise and contractual demands too closely reflects money and stability in exchange for service and $ex. The ‘contractual demands’ would be more in line with a dark romance. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and spicy, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

The colorful secondary and supporting characters include Eryn’s sisters Ella and Echo, as well as Ella’s husband Carson Frost; Echo’s best friend Hayes Elliott; Weston’s mother Miriam Quaid, and his uncle Edward.

MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX is a story of family, forgiveness, secrets and lies. The premise is emotional and engaging; the romance is desperate and impassioned; the characters are energetic, determined and wounded. MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX is a strong, sensitive and intoxicating tale.
