Matt's not a perfect character, either. He's too good to be true, willing to take almost unending abuse both from Whitney and from his cheating ex-wife, whose life is still very much entwined with his.
I didn't enjoy the sexytimes in this story because the power dynamic was so uneven: Whitney was unabashedly using Matt, and though he was willing to go along with it for a long time (men put up with a lot for sex), I didn't have any patience with it.
There are brief glimpses of both Jared and Gretchen, the hero and heroine of The Derby Girl, in this book, but in my opinion that's not enough to salvage The Rebound Girl.
How she ended up with a kindergarten teacher is still a bit of a mystery, but Matt is quite possibly the sweetest, most charming man on the planet. I absolutely adored the chemistry between them, from the bar scene on. It was a deliciously slow burn. The build-up from their first sexual encounter to the ultimate connection was gold. It was written in such a way that I didn't feel deprived; I simply enjoyed the journey as much as they did, and it felt like a special added bonus when 'it' finally happened.
I have to say that I wasn't overly fond of the Laura storyline. It touched on a topic that's pretty sensitive, and at times I felt she made Matt appear weak. Of course, Whitney making light of his gallant efforts had me laughing all over again. "Go. Rake. Be your Galahad self. And if you need a field to plow afterwards, you know where to find me."
The sex scenes. OMG. They were unbelievably sexy and satisfying and wonderful. But my favourite sexy scene of all was when they danced at her birthday and Matt proved to everyone in the room that she was his.
The supporting characters were fabulous, particularly Whitney's parents. I loved Kendra and John and even whatshisname grew on me a bit toward the end. But above all else, this was Whitney and Matt's story, and they had me at hello. I highly recommend this!
In the same token, I didn't think Matt was as weak-willed as some suggested either. He was a man who stuck to his convictions and always tried to do the right thing.
If there was any character I disliked it was Matt's ex wife. Using the fact that Matt was a good man against him.
Somehow Matt and Whitney were able to bring things out in each other that were missing in their lives and they were better off for it.
Matt and Whitney both have past relationships that ended painfully...and which stubbornly refuse to stay in the past. Seriously, it's like they're cursed - daily - with the living ghosts of doomed relationships.
The sexual tension and banter between Whitney and Matt is wonderful, and watching her assert herself in a no-strings-attached fling with this hot but reserved kindergarten teacher (yes, you read that correctly) is delightful. When he starts to turn the tables on her, it's even better.
Whitney can be over the top at times, but she comes by it honestly and there's a kind of driven hopefulness underlying even her most cringeworthy actions that ended up endearing her to me. And the contrast between Matt's sterling manners and naughty pickle antics (not a euphemism...well, kind of a euphemism), he's adorable.
