“Best friend’s ex-boyfriends are always off limits.”
I absolutely love Meghan Quinn, so when I found out she was releasing a new romcom I just had to get my hands on it ASAP. I always enjoy her humor, her fast paced plot and the characters she develops. I’m happy to report My Best Friend’s Ex was no exception. I was especially looking forward to reading something as controversial as falling for the best friends ex. OOOHHH… I think we all know this is a no go zone and ex’s are always off limits, so I couldn’t wait to find out what happens.
Emma is a nursing student and is on a clinical placement when she receives a distressing phone call from her roommate, telling her she needs to come home straight away. When she gets there her roomie informs her of the unfortunate news that they are being evicted. And if that’s not bad enough, they have one week to find somewhere else to live.
Emma is at a bar one evening with a couple of friends drowning her sorrows and stressing about the fact that she still hasn’t found a place to live and may be faced with the prospect of being homeless in the next couple of days…. Enter … a blast from the past… Emma sees an old friend from her hometown who also happens to be her best friend’s ex-boyfriend, Tucker. During this reunion, one of Emma’s friends lets slip about her predicament about finding a place to live in the next two days and on a whim Tucker offers his place to Emma.
Tucker has not had the easiest times of late and has become somewhat of a recluse. He has a house that he despises. It was a house he built for himself and his ex-girlfriend to live together in. He was already thinking and preparing for starting a family and sharing a life together. Due to certain events and unforeseen circumstances he now lives there alone and everything about the house reminds him of what he once had and now has lost.
Neither Emma nor Tucker could have predicted that their relationship would soon turn from friendship in to something so much more. I loved these characters and just could not get enough of them. Their attraction and chemistry towards each other was electrifying. Of course not everything is all smooth sailing and there are quite some hurdles for them to overcome. But I would expect nothing less, because I always love a great balance of laugh out loud moments, sizzling romance, emotion and drama.
If you are a fan of well written stories with great characters who have so much charm and quick wit that will not only make you laugh embarrassingly while in public (yep this happened to me) but will seriously touch your heart and give you all the feels, then I definitely recommend this AMAZING friends to lovers story.
About the Author
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
