This is my first read by this author and I was so looking forward to reading more of her work since she has quite a few offerings available.

This book started off great; I had to buy it after reading the sample. I loved the style, the flow and the implementation of details without sounding like they were being checked off a list. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there.

First, this book should have been titled "All About Cortland", because his is the name most mentioned-over and over again. In fact I think he was given more face time than the hero and heroine put together. Every action or thought executed by the heroine was motivated by her feelings about Cortland. (See, even I've mentioned his name twice before mentioning the hero, Dexter.)

Now about Dexter. He was a loser. Although no hero should be perfect, can we at least get close to it since reading romance is all about fantasy? This dude has a non-traditional job and can barely make ends meet and after working six years on Wall Street doesn't even have $15,000 in the bank. And he's a paid escort who continuosly lies to his parents about his career status-and it is never resolved. He can't even afford to have a car in the city. I see this kind of dude in real life everyday, I don't want to read about him, too.

It probably would have helped if we had been given a more detailed physical description of Dexter or for that matter of Asia at the beginning of the book. Instead, they seemed like blurs who talked the entire book.

The love scenes left a lot to be desired. In fact did they really even happen?

When Asia was away from Dexter she didn't even think about him or express any longing for him or loving feelings about him at all.

"The Rebound Guy" is an unexpected tale of Dexter, a male relationship adviser/coach, and Asia, a PR crisis manager experiencing a personal crisis of her own. After another night of putting out corporate PR nightmares, Asia returns home to find her home empty of some furniture, wine, and her fiancé. When a confrontation with her ex-fiance leaves her self-confidence reeling and her personal business becomes the water cooler topic of the day, she sets out to prove everyone, especially her ex-fiance, wrong.

Enter Dexter, an ex-financial adviser turned dog-walker turned relationship adviser. Having been burned as a rebound guy in the past, Dexter is determined to help other men avoid heartache by allowing heartbroken women to work through their issues with him. Though his business concept still raises eyebrows and draws skepticism, his methods work...as long as he follows all of his self-imposed rules.

Sparks fly between Asia and Dexter as they struggle to remember that their relationship is all about business. Dexter leads Asia on a journey of self-discovery as he fights his passion for a woman who could destroy his personal career goals. Toss in a jackass ex-fiance and a quirky little sister with the worst timing and you get a book that keeps you captivated until the end.

I generally enjoy Farrah Rachon and this book had lots of great highlights. The chemistry between Asia and Dexter was amazing and Dexter proved he could handle his business...everywhere. I struggled with Dexter's background and business because he was so confident in his ability to help women get their lives together even as he struggled to do the same with his own life. There were definitely some "physician, heal thyself" moments but overall, the book was a good read.

I loved this witty, sexy and funny romance. This veteran author delivers a fresh take on finding love after a broken heart. The main characters Dexter and Asia suck you into their world of deception and love.

Asia works for a firm as a PR crisis manager. She takes her job very seriously and works long hours. Unfortunately, in an effort to get ahead in her career she puts work above all else; even relationships.

Dexter is a relationship "consultant" helping women gain their confidence by being their Rebound Guy. He builds their confidence by dating them making them feel like the center of the universe again.

Asia finds herself needing the services of The Rebound Guy after being dumped by her fiancé in a public way. Dexter comes to the rescue and these two try to maintain a professional "working" relationship. Asia and Dexter had amazing chemistry they would not be ignored and it wreaks havoc on Dexter's business plans. Dexter won my heart in the first scene walking the dogs. He is a patient and extremely loving man. I wanted to be Asia!

The story is well developed and the characterization is contemporary and relevant to today's time. I've read everything by this author and as usual she delivered a story that leaves me totally fulfilled and satisfied.
