REVIEW – MARRY ME MAD (Blueberry Lane 3 – The Rousseaus #2) by Katy Regnery



Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?

Katy Regnery’s Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!

For as long as Madeleine “Mad” Rousseau can remember, she’s been the “sweet” twin to her sister Jax’s “sassy.” But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides she’s had enough of being sweet. Children’s librarian during the day, she begins visiting Philly’s seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure and experience. When Cortlandt “Cort” Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad’s sister, Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.

And Mad felt the blistering awareness of something her heart had always known: Cort had never belonged to Jax because he had always belonged to her, and here, now, their hearts were finally home.


This second installment in The Rousseau’s series centers around Mad, twin sister to Jax. Mad has just caught her boyfriend of three years cheating for the umpteenth time and she’s had enough. Finally, she finds the strength from within to break up with him. Feeling a bit lost and alone she ends up walking the streets of Rittenhouse Square in Philly. She happens upon a small French bar and café and imbibes on several shots of tequila. Little does she know that someone from her childhood is in the bar and will come to her rescue when she gets sick from overindulging on tequila.

Cort Ambler is one of the musicians performing at the café and he can’t believe his eyes when he sees Mad Rousseau there. He’s had a thing for her since he was thirteen-years-old but never made his feelings known and then a few years later during a drunken stupor, he made the mistake of kissing Jax at a party because in his inebriated state he thought she was Mad. The two end up dating for a couple of months and it was only because he didn’t want to embarrass Jax and she had basically coerced him into a relationship. But he couldn’t keep up with the lie and when they broke up, he let Jax tell everyone it was she who called it off and he also allowed her to come up with the reason for the break-up. Cort had no idea that Jax would paint him out to be a supreme jerk which resulted in Mad’s hatred of him. Cort ends up walking Mad home and she invites him in. They spend the night catching up on old times and also discussing what has been going on in their lives up till now. The conversation is easy and the company is more than intoxicating. They’re both feeling the sexual tension between them and soon a kiss is turning into so much more, but Mad’s guilty conscience over betraying her sister, Jax, has her putting a stop to whatever is building between her and Cort.

Not even a day has gone by and the two of them can’t stop thinking about their night together. Neither one of them wants whatever is building between them to end. The next day they end up running into each other again when Mad shows up at the café. This time they’re both unable to deny the strong attraction that is pulling them towards each other. Mad and Cort decide to spend one more night together but they promise to avoid bringing up their exes. Mad also makes Cort swear that he will not fall in love with her. It’s kind of hard for him to agree to this seeing as how she stole his heart when he was only thirteen.

Will Cort and Mad be able to walk away from each other after their night is over? Or will Mad risk her relationship with her sister and go after the man she loves? You’ll need to pick this one up to find out.

MARRY ME MAD is currently available and can be read as a standalone.
