DITCHED by RC Boldt

I don't believe in happily-ever-afters. I believe in happy-for-nows.
------------------
IVY HAYES
Dating can be a rocky journey. Once the new shine wears off, you may end up with a case of buyer's remorse.

That's where I come in. I set the backdrop and coach you through the breakup.

Don't want overblown drama, hard feelings, or a drink tossed in your face? Then I'm your fairy godmother, child.

BECKET JONES
As an NFL quarterback, endorsement ads and the media pandering after me are all part of the game.

Ivy Hayes is the first woman who doesn't care about my money and the notoriety that goes along with it.

But I'm a long-term guy, and she operates strictly in the now. Which means I need to bring my A-game.

Otherwise, I'll end up getting ditched.

Ivy Hayes has had nothing but bad experiences when it comes to love. Ivy and her foster sister, Darcy, create a business that helps people with breakups without all of the messy drama. Ivy has no plans of ever getting involved with a man, until she meets NFL quarterback Becket Jones. From the first time that Becket laid eyes on Ivy, he knew he had to have her. With a little patience and compassion he is able to work his way into her heart and show Ivy that not every man is out to break her heart. Soon they are both falling head over heels for each other, until secrets from Ivy's past resurface and send their relationship spinning out of control. Will they be able to overcome Ivy's past and find a love that is meant to last forever? What can I say besides Becket, Becket, Becket... this man will make you swoon! This quarterback is gorgeous on the outside as well as the inside and will leave you wanting more of him! He is sweet, funny, and strong enough to take his time with Ivy and give her the love and compassion that she needs and deserves. Ivy is sassy and full of surprises! She didn't have the best childhood, but she found the courage to make something of herself and became a successful business owner. Ivy gives Becket a run for his money and makes him work hard for her heart, but once they are together the fireworks are undeniable. This sports romance from RC Boldt is one that you won't want to miss! Ditched is by far my favorite story that she has written so far. One-click this book right now and be ready for Becket's charm!

I loved Ditched. I’ve loved Becket ever since reading He Loves Me...Knot and I couldn’t wait for his book to be written. He is such a sweet, big hearted and amazing guy that loves kids. I’m glad Becket and Ivy gave each other a shot even if the way they met was totally crazy. Lol. They are such a perfect match. I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll just say I look forward to reading what Mrs. Boldt writes next. I’m hoping it’ll be Darcy’s (Ivy’s sister) book.

When I read the synopsis for Ditched, I knew it was a book that I just had to read. RC Boldt did a fantastic job creating a story line that leaves the readers wanting more right from the very beginning. I was super excited and intrigued by the synopsis of the story and once I started reading it, I was instantly hooked. Ivy Hayes is such a mystery character which is kind of an anomaly for the lead female character in a book. I loved the way Boldt wrote Ivy`s character, strong, independent and fiery. She doesn't take anything from anyone and leads the life that she choose to lead for herself. I loved the way that Ivy and Becket are introduced and the timeline of the romance. Nothing felt rushed or forced in the book and everything happened on Ivy's schedule. Becket was such a fun character to read about and I instantly liked him. I thought it was so cute how they both had the same interest in the word ap and loved how the author tied that into all their text messages. One of my favorite writing techniques is the switching back and forth between the lead characters and Boldt does it to their advantage. The readers are never wondering what either character is thinking or their motivation for anything. I loved that the characters were so well written and the plot was sensational. This was definitely a great read and such a treat. I definitely recommend this as your next book to read and don't leave it on your To-Be-Read Shelf for too long - make sure it is read instead!

There’s only one thing to say about Ditched by RC Boldt. She freaking knocked this one out of the park! I usually can tell from the first few chapters if I’m going to like a book, but with this one, I knew from the first few lines of the prologue. Ivy doesn’t do relationships at all, so she certainly doesn’t think happily ever after is in her future. But, she is okay with that. In fact, she has a business, Ditched, that helps you break up with someone. It isn’t ugly or emotional. She takes all of that out of the equation, doing it with tact and class. Shoot, she even makes the person being ditched feel better after the break up. A chance meeting will soon make her think about her own future, and she may even get her own HEA. Becket is a NFL quarterback and very successful at it. He has endorsements and people adore him. But, along with that fame, comes people who only care about his wealth and status, not him. So, he is very cautious when it comes to relationships. When his best friend, Blue, shoots him a text with the number of a girl, Ivy, that she thinks he will love, he is hesitant. He soon relents and texts Ivy, and a friendship and budding relationship begins. Becket will be in the fight for his life, and it will be much harder than the Super Bowl, because it’s Ivy’s heart he wants as the prize. As with other books I have read from RC Boldt, she knows exactly how to build her characters, and I fall in love with every single one of them. Ivy is beautiful, smart, and intelligent. She has worked hard for her success and especially hard at forgetting her past and moving forward. However, the past always catches up to you, and hers is rapidly approaching. She is so sincere and kind to others, but she lets very few in her inner circle. Becket definitely doesn’t give up easily. She makes it difficult. She will only allow him to get so close to her before she backs away. I admired the fact that she was upfront and honest about her take on relationships, but that doesn’t really help when Beckett has lost his heart to her. Becket immediately melted my heart. Yes, he is a sport superstar, but he has a nerdy side too which made him more irresistible to me. So much of that comes across when he and Ivy are first texting and talking to one another. He is 100 percent committed to Ivy if she will just give her heart to him. I knew he would cherish and protect it with his own. I was glad to see Blue and Knox again, and I loved seeing how the friendship with Becket changed and became even deeper. Ivy had her own inner circle of friends who became a big part of her story as well. There are a few surprises I didn’t see coming, but Boldt did a great job of building up to that. This romance had pretty much everything I love…toe-curling romance, a hero who melted my heart, a strong heroine, and a fantastic story!!! All those combined flawlessly to make this a PERFECT read for me! ***Read and Reviewed for Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews***

I literally just finished Ditched....and I’m still trying to process how absolutely amazing this book was. Becket Jones....sound familiar???? We had our first introduction of him in He Loves Me....Knot.....first, I was so HAPPY to realize Ditched was his Book! Ivy Hayes.....beautiful, strong, independent woman who is a survivor but has a past that has shaped her. And yes....Becket is part of my Book Boyfriend Harem now. He has upped the ante for all my future BBF........ “God, Ivy........You Undo Me”......welcome Becket to my harem. ❤️❤️❤️ Ms. Boldt’s ability to draw you, the reader, into the story is pure perfection. Ditched is a must #oneclick and then go ahead and one click everything she has written. Reviewed by: Dana D.

4.5 stars Ditched is perfect. It's the best and most unusual business idea. It's Disney kind of perfect. Ivy, on the other hand, is a whole bag of contradictions and problems. But if any one can win the girl, its Becket Jones. I seriously wanted Becket to be mine in He Loves Me...Knot. It's impossible to not fall for the Adonis with a heart bigger than a Mack truck. I wanted to kidnap and keep him in Knot. In Ditched, he's the leading man. Guess how much more swoon worthy that makes him? Beck becomes freaking Kryptonite to anyone with a pulse in this book. It's not just Beck though, the whole group of friends steals your heart. As RC Boldt has managed to prove repeatedly, she doesn't hold back with love, zany friends, and smart mouths. I'm in love with the whole gang and can't wait to see who might get...Hitched. Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

This book was Just. So. Much. Becket - Professional Football Player. Hot, sexy, patient, and one of the more caring, compassionate men I've read. I claimed him right out of the gate. That is MY book boyfriend. So back off ladies. ;) And Ivy - smart, funny, but convinced her heart is ruined. Despite that, she can't help but feel drawn to Becket. As Ditched progresses, you can see Ivy's defenses crumbling. And when Beckets teammates bring her into the family, she finally feels like she belongs. But she's carrying around a secret, and it just may be enough to tear their burgeoning love apart, and it will be up to Ivy - the girl with no heart - to make things right. I devoured this book. I was completely intrigued at the relationship between Ivy and Becket. Their role reversals, and holy hell, the chemistry was off the charts. You have got to pick this one up today!

Ivy along with her foster sister, Darcy and friend, Leif found a successful nitch with their business Ditched. If you have a relationship that has run it's course and you're not sure how to end things gracefully, without drama, without backlash Ditched is who you call. Becket Jones is NFL guarterback. This guy is not the typical big headed, strut their stuff sports star. He's very down to earth. Super nice guy and to put the cherry on top he's very good looking. ~sigh~ Due to her past Ivy does not do relationships and avoids the limelight at all cost. Becket is the opposite in regards to relationships. He's doesn't do one night stands. I absolutely love the banter between these two. I also love the way Becket actually 'sees' Ivy and knows when to push and not to push. As you read along you get trickles of Ivy's past but you know there's more to it and when she comes out in the open with it I was gutted for her but I was also so very proud of her of no longer letting it control her life and any possible future she has. I also feel the secondary characters really added to this story. Blue is my girl! When their present blows up they have to either work together or getting ditched. This is the type of book I absolutely love. As I read along it just kept getting better and better. Just going to put a thought out there....it would be awesome if Darcy has a story that involves either Dax or Tank.

I read this book in one sitting. It’s a ‘friends to lovers’ story about Becket Jones whom we met in Love Me Knot, the book previous to this one. Bennett is the star quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, in Miami. When his best friend Blue (Emma Jane from LMK) meets Ivy Hayes in a dessert store, she decides the quirky woman is the perfect fit for Becket and tricks Ivy into giving her her phone so she could put his number into it. Becket and Ivy slowly get to know one another through calls and texts but it’s not until Dax, another of Becket’s team mates needs Ivy’s help that the two actually meet. Ivy runs an unusual business. Instead of helping couples get together and find love, she helps them break up. Safely and calmly. This is something that Dax needed help with and he hired Ivy. He took Becket with him for moral support. Neither Ivy or Becket knows who the other is as they haven’t exchanged full names or pictures, so Becket is slightly confused and alarmed when he starts feeling attracted to Ivy, as he was developing feelings for the digital woman he’d been in contact with.   Ivy is a very guarded woman, she’s had to be for a long time due to a traumatic incident in her past but for some reason, Becket seems to get past every wall she has built around her heart just by being himself. And, it’s no wonder, this man is top of the line book boyfriend material, he’s hot as sin, sexy as all get out and hits all my swoony buttons. Ivy finds it hard to resist all this and falls hard, their texts varied between super cute and intensely hot. Their banter was often funny, sexy and flirty but had a few serious moments as they slowly opened up to each other. Becket is just starting to think of a long term future with Ivy when her past comes back to slap her in the face. It causes trouble for Becket too but Ivy can’t tell him the truth and he has to make a heartbreaking decision. Can they stay together or will this be the downfall that Ivy always envisioned for their relationship? I freaking loved this book. I was sweet, sexy and had just the right amount of angst. Ivy and Becket were perfect foils for each other and I loved getting a little glimpse of EJ and Knox’s life after Love Me Knot. The other secondary characters were a riot too, especially Dax and tank, man, those guys were funny. If you’re looking for a fun read that’s going to leave you with a smile on your face this you need to get Ditched today.

Ditched is one of those sports romances that resonates within you well after you’ve finished reading it. The captivating storyline delivers so much within it’s pages – from heart-warmth to heartache, passion to pain, and fear to freedom. This unique and incredibly well-written book packs a punch to the feels with it’s humor, chemistry, and passion. The characters of Becket and Ivy bring a diverse outlook on how sports romances are portrayed. Both have tragic and painful pasts, which propel them into the people they’ve become. But where one’s learned contentment and acceptance, the other has learned bitterness and avoidance. Becket and Ivy’s relationship together is definitely not without its faults, but their deep connection and allure towards each other brings hope that a past full of hardships and pain can be overcome with the right person by their side. This was an outstanding read! Like the author’s previous books, this story has the power to bring out an array of emotions. Comedy, drama, and sweet and sexy romance are just a few qualities that lie within. A highly recommended must read you won’t be able to put down! 4.5 Stars!

Wow I have been waiting for this book from RC Boldt, Becket was such a great guy in He Loves Me Knot. We get to know him on a more personal level so he deserves a great woman, and Ivy is a great female lead. When Ivy was in college and with the help of her friends Darcy and Leif they start the company that later becomes Ditched. Beckett is impressed and falls for Ivy straight away. Unfortunately Ivy’s background causes the relationship problems. This book is as usual, an entertaining romance with a lot more substance that I have come to expect from this Author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and now I can’t wait for the next one. At the end of the book there is a link to a Bonus content the puts the icing on the cake even though the end put a big smile on my face after all the emotions I was put through while reading.

I've been waiting for this one since meeting Becket in He Loves Me...KNOT. I fell in love with him in that book and his book lived up to my expectations. Becket is such awesome book boyfriend material. He has such a big heart and he's just hilarious especially when he is with his teammates. I loved his teammates they were a hoot. One of my favorite scenes of the book is Halloween night. Ivy was a great character and learning her back story just broke my heart, but it shows the strength that she has. I couldn't have pictured anyone better the Becket for her. No one deserved someone like him in their corner more then she did. I was also super excited that Knox and Emma Jane made cameos in this one. I can't recommend this book enough!

I Loved this storyline. It has humor, secrets, romance and fantastic characters. The book is very well written and will draw you in from the start and hold you to find out all the hidden twists or maybe I should just say it will hold you tight until the end). Ivy Hayes is a fascinating character. She learns early on in life that she has a gift for helping people get out of bad relationships without all the heartaches and drama that often follow a break-up. She is so good that she starts her own business called Ditched. However Ivy is jaded due to something in her past. She doesn’t do relationships at all and she hate the limelight. But I’ll hand it to her, she is up-front and honest with her gentlemen friends and easily walks away when she needs to. Becket is the Jag’s football teams QB and face of the Franchise. But he is so much more than just his good looks. He is looking for his “one and only”. He wants the picket fence and happy everafter. So when his best friend, hooks him up with Ivy (which is a hysterical event you must read to appreciate), her No relationship policy definitely is a problem, especially as he gets to know Ivy. But Becket never backs down from a challenge. But can he get her to open up about her past? Can he slide in past her walls she’s built or will her past be the thing that finally makes him walk away and give up on the idea of his one and only? Ditched is a wonderful book that I highly recommend reading, you won’t be sorry you did. It's a heartwarming and refreshing story that will have you laughing and smiling with a few OMG's throw in. Kudos to R.C. Boldt on a job well done with “Ditched”.

I just knew the minute I met Becket in He Loves Me...KNOT that he was a character I needed more of. He stole the show with his charm, but no worries both can easily be read as standalone! Ivy makes a living by helping others get "ditched". The last thing she ever saw coming was her not wanting to be ditched. Only Becket. He has one liners that could make any woman swoon. Ivy will be a tough nut to crack since she does have some trust issues, but if any man is up to the challenge, it is Becket. "I have trust issues with people who abstain from carbs." I just adore RC's writing and I am so glad I found her books. Every book I read of hers, I fall deeper in love with her words. "Only Love"

***5 ‘#TeamBeckett /Only Love’Stars*** This book was filled with all kinds of goodness. It was fun, sweet and smexy and I swear my cheeks are hurting from the dopey smile I KNOW I had plastered to my face the entire time I was reading because there is some serious swoon worthy heart twitterpating moments that go on in this book. There was also a good dose of heartstring pulling aka making my eyes do that watery thing moments as well as a few growl inducing ones, but as they were mixed in with everything else they only served to keep me turning the pages and wanting more when everything was said and done. OMG Beckett! Seriously this man makes me all swoony and twitterpated while making my ovaries explode. No joke. He is practically perfect and is full on book boyfriend material. I could say more, but you just need to experience him. Ivy. This woman. The walls around her heart are high and wide, and despite not knowing the full story as to why she’d built them so high, I hurt for her believing that she had to keep her heart on lockdown. But even with that in play, it didn’t make her cold ~ in fact she was warm, sassy, funny, snarky and determined. Beckett and Ivy’s journey starts off on a somewhat unconventional foot and continues that way as they get to know each other and Beckett somehow finds that one crack in Ivy’s walls, gets under her skin and burrows his way into her world. I loved their bantering, flirting and the sexual chemistry between them was hot! There are some interesting twists and turns in their journey, some expected, others surprising, but I loved where they ended up after all the smoke cleared. I pretty much devoured Ditched. I loved the premise behind ‘Ditched’ and how it started. The secondary characters were so much fun. Tank and Dax cracked me up, and I really hope we’ll see them again in the future, I now NEED to read He Loves Me...Knot and the glimpse of a couple that I knew was awesome. So if you’re looking for a fun, quick read with lots of heart, a couple of interesting plot twists and just enough drama to keep you on your toes then this is a definite must read for you! ~ Copy provided via Give Me Books & voluntarily reviewed ~

Everyone deserves the chance to find love. Even when they are too stubborn to reach for it. RC Boldt is tempting with her clever humor and heartwarming dialogue. Ivy doesn't believe in love. She's cynical when the heart is involved. No drama, heartbreak, or happily ever after is worth the pain love dishes out. Her motto: "Get in. Get out. Move on." Becket may be a jock, but he's a one woman guy. If only he could fine his forever girl. Ditched is the sauciest, sweetest, wake up call a girl could ever ask for. Boldt puts her best foot forward with a bit of role reversal and a ton of heart.
