#Bae by Cambria Hebert

My edition: Kindle (Owned copy)
Pages: 334
Series: Hashtag #7

That’s what happens when you get married.
Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.
I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.
I can’t have happily ever after, know why?
Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing.
Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I hove on the fraying rope that happily ever after will snap right in my face.
In our face.
I can’t let that happen. No matter what.
Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.

Review: All I expect is for you to breathe. -Romeo

Romeo and Rimmel are having a happy marriage. Everything is going peaceful when one day Rimmel wakes up to have her world shattered. Her and Romeo are trying to pick up the pieces to heal together, but the press, and some people from the past have other news for them.


I finally accepted the fact I was really struggling today, and with that acceptance, it became a little easier to breathe. -Rimmel

I like that the relationship did change after the horrible news. Romeo and Rimmel still love each other but dealing with their grief has put a barrier between them. The way they work past that makes it that more realistic. Rimmel having to deal with her heartache but she puts on a front so no one worries about her. I love the heart of stone she is written with. She puts everyone else before herself. Most of all she puts Romeo before everyone else. She tries to remain strong for Romeo even when she is dying on the inside. Of course Rome knows what’s going on and makes her open up as much as she will let him.

It isn’t your fault. These things, these horrible things just happen. -Valerie

Most New Adult books have a thing me and a few people call magic peen. What that is is when a MC mostly a heroine has something horrible happen, most cases it’s rape, she has issues dealing with that as any human should. Then out of no where *clears throat, sings* here comes our hero to save the day with his magic penis!!!!*stops singing* All of the sudden our heroine forgets whatever issues she had and is all better. NO!! Authors please stahhhp that shit.

Again as I was saying with the magic peen, this book does not have it. I wanted to jump for joy with that. Thank you Hebert for making this without magic peen. Romeo and Rimmel have to deal with real life shit. But it’s okay. They make it through it. They even become a stronger couple due to this.

Here’s the thing: when you back a wounded dog into a corner, it’s going to come out fighting. -Romeo

Romeo is a man after my own heart. He is up there on my book boyfriend list with the other Romeo from Sweet Home and Preppy from King. His love for Rimmel never faltered. If anything it grew stronger. Romeo also showed that even though you’re an alpha male, sometimes you need to lean on your queen.

Yes I recommend this series. Even though #Selfie and #Poser are not anywhere near my favorites I still recommend. I’m a little sad that it’s ended but hey every great series has that bittersweet moment. Now if you excuse me. I need to go crawl into a fetal postiton and figure what I’m going to do with my life.
