Today we are celebrating the release of Shayla Black’s all-new romantic stand-alone novel, MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX
Can the ex who once broke her heart seduce her into happily ever after?
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?

I didn’t know what to expect when I started this one but what I got was the most delectable slice of chocolate cake. I adore second chance romances and this one checked all the boxes.
Eryn and West were supposed to get married three years ago, only West left her hanging and moved to New York. So much water under the bridge leads to all that lovely tension and salacious behaviours I have come to relish from this author. Through an underhanded business deal they end up spending time together and Eryn fights with all her might not to regain the feelings she once had.
‘It’s too late to question the wisdom of this decision. I lift onto my tiptoes and press our lips together.
I’m kissing Weston Quaid again.
It’s hesitant at first. Then, suddenly, it’s a wildfire. Feeling his mouth on mine is heaven, homecoming, perfection. It’s like every memory of our passion that’s haunted my dreams. His scent fills the air with the olfactory equivalent of crack. His touch almost makes me weep.’
As is usual for this author, the under the sheet action scenes are intense and super sensual. With this book being told by both Eryn and West, the scenes are set and laid out in a way that enforces the intensity and heat. The secondary characters were just as well padded as both Eryn and West. I found myself laughing at the total disconnect between Echo and Hayes. I wonder if we’ll ever get their story, I sure hope so.
Throughout all the ups and downs, there is the constant of family with Eryn. Even though they know better than her; what’s allegedly going to happen, they keep her feet firmly on the ground and are always there for support. Thank you Ms. Black for once again filling my head with wonders and making me lose the real world for just a little while.
