Publisher's Summary

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple - before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so, too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation. Now, she’s back - and this is the real kicker - she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office. She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay, but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

Simplistic, but enjoyable

I was surprised that I found this book entertaining. It's light, interesting, and didn't require replaying sections in order to follow. The mystery was solvable early on, or at least an idea of what happened, but the characters and narrators were lovable. Again, a surprising listen.

Prepare for a book hangover

So, I found out about a thing today. The long awaited 2nd book in Piper Rayne's series, The Greene Family, has already been released on Audible even though the actual book doesn't release until Tuesday, April 6. That's right, you can get My Almost Ex on Audible right now!

I listened to it today while I got some stuff done around the house. It is narrated by the incredible Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose. I love Jacob Morgan's narrations and this one did not disappoint. These two were great together,

This book is Adam and Lucy's story. If you read the first book of the series, My Beautiful Neighbor, you've gotten a glimpse into Adam and Lucy's story. These two were middle school sweethearts. They've had it bad for each other since they were 13. They married young and seemed to have one of those special loves until the day that Lucy, out of the blue, tells Adam that she is leaving him because she isn't happy. She won't talk to him about it. She just leaves. Adam spends the next year despondent and just a shell of himself. After a year, he finally decides to start dating again and he and his date are with his family at the celebration the town has before the tourists return for the season. A hush falls over the crowd when Lucy comes in. She acts like nothing has happened between her and Adam.

I wondered how in the world these two authors were going to finagle this story in a way that the readers could forgive Lucy for whatever she had done. In my mind I have been running through scenarios of how it could work. I came up with nada, nothing, a big goose egg, zip... Honestly, that was probably the biggest reason I was waiting on pins and needles for this book. That and, let's face it, these two authors write fantastic stories. This one did not disappoint. Even when I found out the pretense of the story, I still couldn't imagine being ok with Lucy. But Piper Rayne worked their mojo and hit this one out of the park.

Take my advice; take a nap on Monday and be ready to start reading when the book hits your Kindle at midnight Tuesday. Plan on having one heck of a book hangover because you're going to want to read this one straight through. I'd give this book a solid 5 stars!!

Lovely

I knew very early on what they couldn’t figure out, but that didn’t take away anything from the book for me. I loved it! I did read the first book in this series first, which I liked - but I LOVED this one. I couldn’t get enough of it. I tried to not finish it in two days, but I just couldn’t stop listening. If I didn’t start so late at night on day one - it would have been a one day listen. I just needed to know! The epilogue was not enough though .... will need to continue the series apparently to get more. That’s ok - the next one sounds great! Wonder when that will be released!

Cute story

This story could have been 5 star all the way, but it got caught up in little details. I saw the obvious reason for her unexplained exit when things were seemingly fine. It is cute, great narration. Great for a fast listen.

Second chance/ Amnesia

Adam and Lucy were childhood sweethearts and married right after high school. Lucy left Adam unexpectedly last year and Adam has been struggling with not knowing why. Suddenly, Lucy shows up and thinks they are still happily married. Her mother explains to Adam that Lucy had an accident a few months ago and she doesn't remember much. Adam decides that he'll help Lucy to see if she remembers more. one thing is certain that they both love each other. Can they get over the fact that she might not remember? I loved this story and the narration of Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose. I'm looking forward to the next Greene Family book.
