Leaving the father of her baby was the hardest thing Sedona Bailey has ever done, that is until she took on raising their daughter, Palmer as a single mother. But when Jamison returns to Lake Starlight, Sedona is not prepared for how hard it is to resist the man who broke her heart…

Jamison Ferguson lost his way when his professional soccer career ended, but he has worked hard to overcome his demons… and now he wants his family back.


Rules for Dating Your Ex was the second chance romance we have been waiting for and the ultimate culmination for the Bailey siblings and their individual happily ever afters! Sedona and Jamison share a tangled past which led to heartbreak and hitting rock bottom, but with his return to Lake Starlight, Jamison is prepared to fight his way back into the family who means everything to him. But while they’ve been apart, Sedona hasn’t exactly been waiting for him to pick up the pieces…

I was so excited to finally get Sedona’s story after viewing her from afar for so much of this series! Her love and dedication to her daughter was incredibly beautiful, and her relationship with her siblings was a true tribute to the generosity of the entire Bailey family. And while she has loved Jamison for as long as she has known him, Sedona also showed how strong of a woman she was when she left him to give her daughter the life she deserved.

Jamison suffers from an addiction to drinking, which has shattered more than just his relationship with Sedona. With the end of his career and his reputation in shambles, Jamison has a lot of work to do to repair his life, but his most important goal is reuniting with his family, and proving his worth the greater population of Lake Starlight.

As the final full length novel in The Baileys series, this book delivered the memorable second chance romance that I have been not so patiently waiting for! Sedona and Jamison’s relationship was teased and eluded to, but it wasn’t until I read it for myself that I could properly fall for these two characters. Their love was genuine and meant-to-be, but the mistakes they have made will make a reconciliation between them a hard and meddle-worthy endeavor.

This series provided laughs, tears and all sorts of sexy distractions, and I am giddy with excitement to see what comes next out of Alaska! And, just to mention the infamous Lake Starlight Buzz Wheel… those who have been waiting for it’s reveal will not be disappointed!!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
