Always the bridesmaid ...
Amy's best friend Jenna is engaged ... again. And she's asked Amy to be her maid of honor. Amy can't help but feel jealous that Jenna's ready to walk down the aisle for the second time, especially when her own love life is virtually nonexistent.
Adam has wanted Amy since she first walked into his wine bar. After he finally got the chance to take her out, issues from his past got in the way. Now she's dating someone else, and he's jealous of the lost opportunity.
Will Adam and Amy work out the issues from the past and present that are keeping them apart? Or will their jealousies ruin their relationships and keep them apart forever?
I loved this book. I love the characters in it and the dynamics between them. Great read couldn't put it down
Oh Amy and Adam...what can I say? I honestly just wanted to lock them in a room so they could figure their stuff out. I loved that I could just be frustrated with them as they went along their journey. I could feel the love just emanating from their story. As with any Jerica book, I would absolutely recommend this book.
Beautiful, Sexy, and Bursting With Emotion
Rebound Envy takes you by the hand and whispers, “Come with me...I have a fantastic story to tell you.” Jerica MacMillan’s style is gentle and beautiful. And yet, it's bursting with emotion, and some verra, verra sexy times. The second novella in her Rebound Series, this one tells Amy’s story. It’s not necessary to read novella #1, Rebound Therapy, but do it anyway. It sets up the series, and it’s wonderful. It has a different feel to it than this one. Which is one of the things I admire about Ms. MacMillan; her writing is true to the characters in every way. I have to say, even though I loved Rebound Therapy, this one is my favorite. I couldn’t put it down. I lounged in bed savoring every bit of this totally engaging story.
Amy is the polar opposite of her best friend, Jenna. She is the extrovert to Jenna’s Ms. Prim and Proper. Jenna is merely weeks away from marrying Brian, and since Amy played matchmaker, she is thrilled her best friend has found love again. When Jenna’s fiance was killed in a tragic accident, Amy was beside her through every step of the grieving process. She encouraged Jenna to get back out there. Job done, Amy is feeling lonely, and a tad jealous. Luck has not been on her side in regard to men. She had a few dates with Adam, Brian’s friend, and wine bar business partner. She thought they had a connection. And then, Bam...Adam stopped calling. No explanation, no “It’s not you, it's me”. As far as Amy is concerned, Adam can go sit in a mud puddle and eat a toad. Up until now she's successfully avoided the wine bar. However, there's no way she can get out of this engagement party. She’s Jenna’s maid of honor. And lucky her, Adam is Brian’s best man. Awkward. Thankfully, Jenna has set her up with gorgeous co-worker Scott. The plot thickens ladies.
I love Amy! Her dry sense of humor is hilarious, she thoroughly enjoys shocking Jenna with sex talk, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind. The banter throughout this novella is great, as are the serious conversations. Which are sure to hit a nerve with everyone. We’ve all been in Amy’s situation in regard to relationships. We’ve all wanted it to “work” with someone, knowing deep down it just won’t happen. We've all let it go on too long, hoping things will change. Amy is torn between trying to make something work with Scott and listening to her heart. Her heart says Scott isn’t for her. No matter how gorgeous, or sweet, or wonderful he is. Her heart says Adam still wants her.
Thank you, Ms. MacMillan, for giving us Amy. Thank you for reminding us that we shouldn't settle just to be with someone. Rebound Envy packs a whole lot of wisdom and insight into a beautifully written, thoroughly entertaining novella. I’m looking forward to the next story in the Rebound series.
