Cute and funny, but something was missing….
When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.
Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.
Boy, was I wrong.
Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.
Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.
But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.
Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.
Expected publication: June 1st 2017
After reading Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn, which I adored (my review can be found here), I couldn’t wait to read her next book.
I really liked her style of writing. Her quick witted dialogues, fast paced plots, and wonderful characters.
Tucker Jameson and Emma Marks were no strangers to me. Both were supporting characters in Co-Wrecker. Emma was the best friend and Tucker the boyfriend that was left behind after the breakup. Honestly, when I realized what the storyline was about and that Tucker was going to be the hero, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. He went through a traumatic event with Sadie and after the breakup I had the feeling he was collateral damage. Sadie moved on and Tucker stopped living.
In My Best Friend’s Ex he still had a hard time letting go of the past. It felt like he took all of his emotions and his true self, locked it away and threw away the key. He put on a show, but stopped living a long time ago. He went to work and slept, and that on repeat. I truly felt for him. What he went through I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but the way he dealt with it didn’t help with enamoring him towards me.
I didn’t particular connect with Emma either. Some of her actions didn’t sit well with me. Even so they’ve been friends for a long time, I thought they were more acquaintances than friends. Of course living together changed that very quickly, I still didn’t feel the chemistry or attraction that was described.
I was definitely bummed that My Best Friend’s Ex didn’t work for me the same way Co-Wrecker did.
But all in all, My Best Friend’s Ex had it’s cute and funny moments, and Tucker would have been an amazing and hot character – I swoon over guys that do physical labor, they are just so yummy and down to earth – except for his tendency to keep things locked up – like a fault.
Otherwise Meghan Quinn did a fabulous job in writing a quick and fast paced novel. And since I really like her writing style I’m definitely looking forward reading more by her.
