Marry Me Mad, The Rousseaus #2
Katy Regnery's New York Times bestselling Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!
For as long as Madeleine "Mad" Rousseau can remember, she's been the "sweet" twin to her sister Jax's "sassy." But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides she's had enough of being sweet. Children's librarian during the day, she begins visiting Philly's seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure and experience.
When Cortlandt "Cort" Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad's sister, Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.

Fantastic Romance, amazing characters
Marry Me Mad is the latest addition to Katy Regnery’s Blueberry Lane series and OMG, she has done it again! This is the 26th novel written by Ms. Regnery (I have read every single one of them), and to be honest I continue to be absolutely flabbergasted by her writing, her characters, and the amazing worlds she creates. She persistently outdoes herself story after story continuously bringing my love for her romances to new heights each and every time.
Cort and Mad have known each other since they were children, growing up together on Blueberry Lane. Despite never making it known to the other, they both always felt a draw and connection to the other. But after spending the Spring of their senior year over-imbibing on alcohol, Cort makes an ill-fated mistake and ultimately places a gap between them that seems irreparable. Now ten years later after suffering an appalling strike to her life, Mad unexpectedly runs into Cort, the last person she would ever want to see in her state of mind. Cort’s feelings for Mad have forever run deep and with the goodness that is his very soul he finds it virtually impossible to turn away from her, despite the years that have passed and the hurt that has kept them apart. But finally seeing each other again rejuvenates the love Cort has always felt for Mad and as he offers her his assistance and support, the connection she has always felt for him reignites as well. But remembering the circumstances that surrounded their past forces Mad to continue to fight her deep-seated feelings for Cort. Will she ever find her way to overcoming the past and give in to the love their hearts were meant to share forever?
One of the really fun things I enjoyed about Marry Me Mad is that the timeline of Cort and Mad’s story crosses over with Jonquils for Jax, and I must admit I really loved that. Another is the undying loyalty both Mad and Cort exhibited, from prior promises that could not be broken and unyielding faithfulness to family, not to mention Cort's chivalry and deep down respect for Mad that touched my heart and soul to the core. When they finally see each other again, despite their obvious mutual attraction, as well as Cort's deeply undeniable need to sear his lips to hers, he remains the gentleman that is truly deep within him in spite of the 'bad boy' image. But when they both can no longer fight their feelings, their souls ignite and sparks begin to fly giving us some hot undeniable passion that virtually set my iPad aflame.
With Marry Me Mad, Katy Regnery again takes me on a journey delivering another fantastic romance. I fall in love with her characters time and again, and Mad and Cort are no different. Each and every story introduces me to characters who feel as though they have become my friends as they always touch me deeply and as with every one of Ms. Regnery’s stories in this series, I will surely miss spending time on Blueberry Lane.
Although this is The Rousseaus Book #2, Blueberry Lane Series, it's the first I've read, as well as my 1st Katy Regnery book. But it won't be my last, I'll read it again, but after I read the 1st book of this series. I don't feel as I've lost anything by starting with this book first, but I will go back and read book 1, as well as the rest of the series! This could be read as a stand alone story, but I cannot wait to read the previous books, as well as the next one Katy's sending out J.C. AND THE BIJOUX JOLIS (The Rousseaus #3) Available 11.29.16!
