THE BREAK UP – An Erin McCarthy Review


She’s a runaway bride…running straight towards the one man who always wants what he can’t have. We met Bella and Christian in book one, The Hook Up, so there some backstory readers need to have. On the night of her bachelorette party, Bell discovers the perfect future she envisioned with her Prince Charming is all a lie and he’s been unfaithful to her. Desperate to have her own HEA she gives him a second chance…but it doesn’t last long. Digesting heart crushing news takes some time and at the moment of matrimony, Bella panics and asks for Christian’s help to escape the wedding she can’t go through with.

Christian is…rough. He’s definitely not the nicest or most charming hero, but I’m loving McCarthy’s new anti-heroes. Christian is Jared from his baby-mama drama; his son is a shining light and everything right that Christian isn’t. He always goes towards unattainable women so he doesn’t have to worry about them getting attached. So his new found fascination with rich princess Bella is confusing to him…but he can’t deny the chemistry. She may be prom and proper, but when he whisks her away from her wedding at the last second, he begins to peel back all the layers that make her beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.

I love that McCarthy gives us a before, during, and and after with this couple. There’s a large part of Bella’s story that focuses on her discovering happiness for herself and BY herself rather than just with a man. (But don’t get me wrong…there is the customary HEA for our girl) Christian may be a bad boy but he’s definitely got some good sides to him, despite some questionable choices. The whole story is filled with self-discovery and some super steamy scenes! Another win from Erin!

THE BREAKUP by Erin McCarthy is available now! Fall in love with the princess and the bad boy in this sexy contemporary romance you don’t want to miss!


Can two wrongs feel oh-so-right? This bride is about to find out—with the bad boy who makes an epic breakup worth her while.

Bella: I know I’m a princess. I’m used to getting what I want. But all I ever really wanted was a husband and a family. Unlike my sister, Sophie, I’ll never have a brilliant career to fall back on. So what’s a bride to do when she learns that Prince Charming is a cheating snake just a few days before her fairy-tale wedding? With my fiancé begging for another chance, the only way to save the wedding is to even things out with a little revenge sex—and local bartender Christian Jordan seems like the right man for the job.

Christian: If gorgeous Bella Bigelow thinks sleeping with me will somehow lead to happily ever after, I’m not going to turn her down. The guy she wants to marry is a jerk, and her sister is fooling around with my estranged twin brother, Cain. So what’s the problem—besides falling for a woman who doesn’t know what she wants out of life? All I want to do is whisk her away from that church, take her to a cabin in the woods, and act out all our naughtiest fantasies. And I may just get the chance. . . .
