Rebound Remedy by Christine d’Abo

The last thing Cole expects to get for the holidays is dumped. But there he is, in the airport on his way to Banff for a romantic getaway, helplessly watching as his boyfriend’s ex declares undying love, proposes—and is accepted. With a few weeks to go until Christmas, Cole’s mood dives from jolly to jaded. But instead of sitting at home alone and feeling sorry for himself, he goes to his favorite bar, McGregor’s, for a pint and some company.

The moment Owen McGregor sets eyes on Cole, he knows there’s something wrong. So he takes it upon himself to ensure that Cole has a happy holiday: twelve outings for the twelve days before Christmas. Even if he can’t quite think up twelve activities that don’t involve getting the forlorn hunk into his bed.

With each outing they take together, Cole realizes that the love he thought he’d shared with his ex was less than perfect. And that Owen might prove to be more than just his rebound remedy.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Christine d'Abo is a new-to-me author.

Rebound Remedy was an engaging, fast-paced novella. The perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. With sweet and endearing characters, and a light-hearted yet emotional storyline, I read the title from page one to the end in one sitting.

On the negative side, there were a few moments in which I wanted to throat-punch some sense into a character or two. But for the most part, I was pleasantly surprised. But then again, I'm about as much of a realist as you can get, so take that comment with a grain of salt.

On the cusp of insta-love, the way the days were drawn out made Rebound Remedy not as instantaneous even though the book took place over the course of the two weeks before Christmas. The pacing made the lusty guys falling in love feel at a realistic rate, even in that short amount of time.

I would have enjoyed a bit more of the who/what/where/when/why, but at face-value, Rebound Remedy delivered on exactly what is was supposed to be. A few warm and fuzzy hours of escapism with my Kindle.
