Three Los Angeles women who’ve helped each other overcome heartbreak are reunited eight years later when their troublesome exes come back into the picture in this follow up to Victoria Christopher Murray’s bestselling novel The Ex Files.
Sheridan, Kendall, and Asia first bonded when they met seven years ago at a church prayer support group and now, their friendship has blossomed into a strong sisterhood. They've helped each other through the tragedies of their breakups and together, they've celebrated their triumphs. But now, their exes are back, wreaking havoc on lives they've work so hard to rebuild.
Sheridan has found love again after her ex-husband left her for a man. But old wounds are reopened when her ex-husband appears with his fiancée—a woman! And all of Sheridan's insecurities and doubts come rushing back. Kendall's former husband is now married to Kendall's sister, Sabrina. And though Kendall has refused to interact with either one in the last seven years, she's forced to reunite with Sabrina when their father is diagnosed with cancer. Asia has done her best to move away from her married boyfriend, a former star with the LA Lakers. But when they share a kiss, old desires are rekindled and Asia decides that it's time for her and Bobby Johnson to get back together again.
With her trademark writing that “has the kind of momentum that prompts you to elbow disbelief aside and flip the pages in horrified enjoyment” (The Washington Post), Forever an Ex is Murray's best novel yet.

I picked this book out for my book club and it was a huge disappointment. The story line goes from one person's depressing life to the next, with no resolution. I think someone who is looking for a nice Christian book that is trying look for some drama may like this book. It really made no sense as the story went on and became irritating, many of the members decided against even finishing. If you can get it for free then maybe go for it !
Maybe much later in the future when the taste of this book is long forgotten. I want to support but I feel like I would like my money back.
The narrator did a good job.
All of them, none of the character's were not relatable but Asia was the closest to interesting.
Not a good read.
You have to read the Ex Files in order to enjoy Forever an Ex. It was not as good and not as many twists and turns as the first book.
Absolutely. I really enjoyed this book, as it was a serious. It was easy to listen to, being that each character was described in full detail.
My favorite character is Kendall. I didn't go through anything that dramatic, but I could relate to her story. The need for forgiveness of my ex-husband was similar. I loved her relationship with her Father. Very realistic and touching.
I absolutely loved listening to Suzzanne Douglas!! Her voice is amazing. She brought so much life and energy to each character. I loved the way she made them sound neutral. I really don't care when all of the characters "sound ghetto". I was disappointed to find out this was the only book she narrated. Bring her back!!
I would take Sheridan to dinner. She seemed to be the most level-headed. I loved her personality and her warmth towards all the characters and their families.
There is so much to say about a story like this. This book was one of those stories that grabs your attention, pulls you in and doesn't let you go until the very last word. Forgiveness is something that I have struggled with and this story gives you a full lesson on why forgiveness is of the utmost importance in life. There were so many great lessons in this book. Mrs Murray has a way of delivering a life lesson without being too preachy. Get this book and it's predicessors. You won't be disappointed.
