“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.”
Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god.
This book was absolutely phenomenal. My Best Friend’s Ex is listed as #2 in the Binghamton Series, but I read it at as a standalone and it didn’t make a difference. Everything was explained very well from the first book, so I don’t see the need to read it if you so please. However, after reading this one, I absolutely will read the first one in the series as well as Meghan Quinn’s other books.
I have heard great things about Meghan Quinn’s books, so I had a bit of high expectations when it came to reading my first book of hers. She did not disappoint me at all. There were so many great things about this book. I’ve been struggling with romance novels lately, and I think that this contemporary romance just put me right back into the genre.
This book had everything that I needed/wanted. The chemistry was outstanding. I felt like the relationships in this book were absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t change them in the slightest. The way that the relationships progressed…sheesh! My Best Friend’s Ex really sold me on the romance. I was feeling like recent romance novels that I were reading were a little far fetched, but this, this, took me back into the world of romance.
The fact that this book had it’s fair share of heartbreak as well made this a five star read for me. Most of the time, a romance novel will have some sort of heartbreak involved. It is rare that I can feel the pain of the characters, but with this one, I felt myself tearing up at the words. It was moving and beautiful. It really showed how a person who has been through a tough heartbreak would be, and it was incredibly relatable.
Also, my other favorite thing about this book were the friendships. These friendships were everything. There were so many times where I stopped and thought, “wow, I need a friend like Emma has with her friends”. The friendships showed true tests and how exactly to talk through things. They were all there for each other through all of their problems, and that’s exactly how a friendship should be.
Overall, this book rocked. I am so happy I picked it because it might be the book that gets me out of my romance slump. Meghan Quinn surely did not disappoint me. I can’t wait to read another of hers.
