Teaser Tuesday 4/23: Rebound by Nikki Mathis Thompson



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading Anyone can play along! 

Here are the Rules:

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



Katrine MacNamara was defined by two roles--wife and mother. When one of those roles is suddenly stripped from her, she is forced to re-evaluate her place in the world. She needs to get her life back on track, a life of her own. What are the next logical steps, as a newly single 35 year old woman? 1. Put the kibosh on crying sessions in the fetal position. 2. Start using maiden name. 3. Jump start her non-existent career. The last item is the tricky one. She is determined to stand on her own two feet without her ex's money. But since she has spent the last decade at home raising her son, her moth eaten resume has been collecting dust. When Katrine lands a high profile assignment for the summer. Although short term, the experience would add some much needed prestige to her anemic resume. She is eager to rise to challenge. Little does she know that part of the challenge would be her new boss. During a night full of laughs and margaritas, her friends urge her to get back out into the dating scene. A rebound fling is just what she needs to get her feet wet. Katrine is leery to say the least and is not sure is she is ready. She wonders if a man even fits into her new life. Not to mention the fact that being naked in front of someone new was beyond petrifying. But when a man from the past enters her life and as she grows closer to her new boss, she is forced to re-evaluate the whole fling concept. Does she go for casual or does she commit? Can she even do casual? She always listens to her heart, maybe it was time to start listening to other parts of her anatomy. As she navigates her new single life she has to decide what defines her. And with help from her nutty sister, hilarious friends and plethora of fermented grapes— she just might find that she is willing to forgo lust and even love, if it means compromising her new found identity.
