Publisher's Summary

I can’t borrow him. He’s not a sweater or a skirt. He’s not even her favorite dress - the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour-and-a-half train ride, while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be. 

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

My Thoughts on My Bestie's Ex

My Bestie's Ex kicks off a new series from Piper Rayne. As a fan of this author duo I had previously been introduced to Blanca in the last series. I loved the guys of the White Collar Brothers series and was excited for their little sister to get a book. And now that I've gotten it I found that I liked it.

I liked the way that this book was a combination of romance tropes. It was a best friend's ex book as was clear from the title, but also a work place romance. I liked the way the best friend's ex aspect was handled as far as their intro and initial getting to know each other. I also liked the banter and chemistry that came from their working relationship.

While I can't say that this book is my favorite of Piper Rayne's books, it was still really well written and had good characters. Overall it was pretty good and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up their next book.

After listening to the audio I found I liked the story even more. Tim Paige and Penelope Rose bit did an excellent job with the narration and really brought it to a new level for me.

Neutral

The story itself is mostly good, except literally every chapter narrated by Blanca she has to mention her brothers. Literally every chapter. It feels like beating a long dead horse, and completely unnecessary.

In addition, although the characters are in their late 20s, they act much more like recent college grads.

I’m a big fan of Piper Rayne’s Baileys series so I know she is an amazing writer but this one just was lacking in a lot of ways.
