BLURB: Stuntman and two-time cancer survivor Memphis Haines excels at beating the odds. When he’s presented with the opportunity to help his ex-boyfriend with a charity event, he jumps at the chance to make up for the devastating way he left Tyler ten years ago. Memphis might have taken the college geek’s virginity, but the former mathelete is now a hell of a head turner. And Dr. Tyler Hall’s cool reserve is a challenge Memphis can’t resist. A self-confessed rule breaker and line crosser, he keeps turning up the heat with one goal in mind: to melt the man’s composure.
Tyler Hall sticks to one simple mandate: no more dating ex-boyfriends. Ever. He certainly isn't interested in hooking up with Memphis Haines, the ex who jumps off buildings, dodges explosions, and poses for designer underwear ads. Ten years ago, falling for Memphis changed Tyler’s life. The man’s abrupt departure turned his world inside out. But he moved on long ago. Besides, he has a clinic for the homeless to run, patients to take care of, and no time to deal with the trouble his ex brings. Memphis, however, seems determined to rehash the past. And his boxer-dropping grin, hard body, and confident charm are resurrecting ultra-hot memories best not remembered, making Tyler’s rule harder and harder to keep.

REVIEW: I can honestly say I liked this book more than The Backup Boyfriend (#1) and that says a lot because I really liked book one. Not only do we find out why Tyler is so closed off with his emotions we actually get to see him come out of his self-imposed shell. Having your heart broken at a young age on top of having your first boyfriend leave you without a word set Tyler up to be an emotionless man who his friends call Iceman. When the love of his life shows up and Tyler has no choice but to deal with him one on one, the truth finally comes out. Memphis never wanted to hurt Tyler but knowing everything Tyler had already been through, he didn't want to add more onto Tyler's fragile shoulders. When the truth comes out Tyler realizes that what he had and what he could have is everything he ever wanted, and that just happens to be Memphis. 
I adored Memphis, his humor and quick wit with his comebacks..fantastic!
