AP - Synopsis.jpg

1. Don’t sleep around.

2. Don’t kiss and tell.

3. Be nice.

4. Don’t text or call.

5. Don’t fall in love.

The rules were simple...until they weren't.

I have everything I ever thought I would want: a nice home, a job I love, two beautiful girls, and my husband, Gabe - my high school sweetheart who still rocks my world. If you ask anyone to describe me they would say, "Oh, Mirella? She's such a nice girl." And that’s true...until a mysterious, peculiar man and his beautiful wife enter our lives.

Weston and Bridget Hanson are no ordinary couple—they’re stunning, enigmatic, and sexy as hell. During the course of one unexpected evening, my ordinary world is turned upside down. How could it not be when Weston and Bridget propose the unthinkable? And when the unthinkable is so very tempting, giving in becomes inevitable.

It sounds so logical and simple. Just five rules and we can all have what we desire. But the heart doesn't follow rules, and now passion, jealousy, and confusion threaten to tear everything apart.

Two beautiful couples. Five simple rules. One hot mess.

Book Two


Five simple rules. And it was very simple…until it wasn’t. 

It could have been much worse. We weren’t thinking straight and had put everything on the line – risking our marriages. So when Weston ended the arrangement, it was for the best – for all of us. But I was still heartbroken. I thought I’d shatter into a million pieces. I didn't, I survived. Not only did I survive, I came out stronger and ready to move on with my life.

But then… 

Weston reaches out to me. With a few soft words, a gentle touch and a lingering gaze, he crumbles all my efforts.

Neither Gabe nor I want to start this again, and we are determined to to fight the temptation. But Weston and Bridget are not taking no for an answer, and the pull between all of us is still so strong.

I tell myself I can handle it this time. This time, I am in the driver’s seat. This time, I am rewriting the ground rules.

Lia's Review

Phew. This book was a marathon. I really enjoyed book one. But this one was on a whole other level. I don't even know what to say about it. There is lots and lots of sex. And yes, there is story too. But it just irritated me. I was so angry with Mirella throughout most of The Ground Rules Rewritten. She seemed so much weaker to me than in the first book. I kept wanting to shake her and tell her to get her head out of her a*s.

I have always been Team Gabe, because as much as I love a good love triangle, I also hate to see a marriage break up. I see Weston as underhanded and sneaky. And his uptight, stuffy persona just rubs me the wrong way. I did like that his layers got peeled back a bit in this story, it just wasn't enough to redeem him for me. I want Mirella and Gabe!!!!

Looks like book three is going to be an even bigger emotional rollercoaster. Carmen certainly left her readers with a doozy of a cliffhanger.

AP - about the author.jpg

Mom, writer, book junkie, doodle addict and hopeless romantic. I have been writing for over ten years, finding my passion for romance in 2008. When I'm not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, painting, and writing - there is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down at my laptop and making up my own stories - and if those stories should include beautiful men, a little romance, and a few steamy scenes, all the better!

I write contemporary and erotic romance under the pen name Roya Carmen.
