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.

I really liked this one. Since it was my first Christine D’Abo, I was pleasantly surprised that Rebound Remedy turned out to be a perfect Holiday read. And… the purchase of this book supports a worthy cause, so it turned out to be a win/win 😉
Poor Cole… it’s hard for him to realize from the opening scene in the book that his significant other is actually doing him a huge favor. Dumping him was probably the best thing he ever did… (it didn’t hurt that he got what he deserved in the end, but that may be just me. 😉 )
Owen may have been Cole’s ‘knight in shining armor’ but it didn’t take long to discover that Owen needed Cole as much as Cole needed Owen. Those are the best kind of love stories, aren’t they?
