Bad Romance (Billionaire's Club #16) by Elise Faber
She’d been broken.
He was determined to help her put the pieces back together.
Looking after the woman he’d claimed as his was in Asher’s blood.
It was what a Hutchins man did.
He hadn’t been there for Melody when she had needed him the most.
And now she was…
But he couldn’t go back, couldn’t change the past.
So, he was going to do the only thing he could.
He was going to gather up every single piece of her.
And he was going to make her whole.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)
BAD ROMANCE is the sixteenth book in the Billionaire's Club series and after reading Tiff's story, I knew this one would be difficult. I was right, it is. If you have triggers, then please be careful. Saying that, it is also a story about surviving, about picking yourself up, putting all the pieces back together again, and living.
When Ash turned Mel down, it was for all the right reasons (or so he thought.) He quickly found out his mistake and had to live with the consequences. Mel called Ash in her hour of need, even though she regretted doing so. Once the lines of communication opened between the two of them, things started working out better. Ash knew just how much to push Mel, to bring her alive without being threatening. He also knew when to fall back, to give her time and space to regroup. Their relationship builds over time, step by careful step, until Mel is ready to move forwards.
Rome and Maddie are next, with a sneak preview in the epilogue - which was perfect for Ash and Mel, by the way. My heart is aching for him and I really can't wait to read how Maddie can help. The Hutchins family is definitely one I love and can't wait to read more of. HIGHLY recommended by me.
