Scandal is the third book in the The Reckless Crew series but can be read as a standalone. This is a heartbreaking and heartwarming story full of feels; it had my emotions all over the place.
Chloe has a horrible life with her husband, Zack. She has given up everything for him including her best friends. But when things get too bad at home and she runs who will she turn too? Will they still be there for her after everything they’ve been through. Then there’s Kip, all sexy and brooding. He has his own demons and is hell bent on helping Chloe get better and find herself again.
This is a great second chance romance. I loved the characters. Chloe was a great heroine; she was beautiful, strong and full of spunk. Kip was a perfect book boyfriend. He was sexy, tatted, and completely swoon worthy.
Scandal was a bit of an emotional roller coaster. It deals with a serious subject matter and I commend the author for writing about something so hard and sadly common placed. I loved watching Chloe grow and find her well deserved happiness. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes second change romance. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Bellus.
