REVIEW – MY BEST FRIEND’S EX by Meghan Quinn

SYNOPSIS

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.

A few feet away stands the woman who captured my heart when I least expected it. She came back into my life as a friend and burrowed her soul into mine, making it almost impossible to breathe without her.

 

 

The latest rom-com standalone written by Meghan Quinn is filled with a ton of laugh out loud moments that only the authors signature brand of humor can evoke. It is a ”friends-to-lovers” story that at times will torture you with the painful angst but also contains so much heart. If you read CO-WRECKER, you will have already met the Hero and Heroine of MY BEST FRIEND’S EX. Tucker Jameson is Sadie’s high school sweetheart and Emma is one of Sadie’s long time best friends. I would also categorize this as a forbidden love story due to the nature of their connection to each other. Although I found this one to be a little more on the serious side, I still really enjoyed reading it and Meghan Quinn has now become an automatic must-read author for me.

Emma Marks is in her final year of nursing school and finds herself in a bit of a pickle. She and her roommate have been given an eviction notice and must vacate their apartment within three days. Emma’s having a hard time finding a place to rent with such short notice. One night while drowning her sorrows at a local bar, she runs into Tucker Jameson. Tucker and Emma grew up together and lost touch after his relationship with Emma’s best friend Sadie fell apart. They had a very volatile relationship which went to hell once Sadie became pregnant and then ultimately had a miscarriage. While it’s been almost over a year and Sadie is now happily in love with her new boyfriend, Tucker has been stuck in limbo. Living in the house he bought for Sadie and the baby they lost, has only helped to further isolate him from his friends and keeps him from moving on from the past. When Tucker hears that Emma is in desperate need of a place to stay, he offers her to come live with him as he has a pretty decent sized house with a spare bedroom. Emma feels a little weird about living with Tucker because she realizes that he obviously has been going through a rough patch and that she hasn’t been a good friend to him since she never bothered to check on him over the past year. She does end up moving in with Tucker when she is unable to find anything else.

 

 

At first, their interactions are a bit uncomfortable because of all the past drama but they soon fall into an easy friendship that is filled with some hilarious banter and sexy flirtations. They do set up some rules of the house and two of them strike up a painful reminder of Tucker’s past – they’re not to ever discuss his relationship with Sadie and the room across the hall from Emma’s bedroom is never to be entered or talked about as well. It’s pretty obvious to Emma that the room across from hers was meant to be the baby’s room and the realization that Tucker hasn’t been able to move on from that loss, breaks Emma’s heart. Readers will find it hard not to fall crazy in love with Tucker. He’s still so lost in his grief and heartbreak over losing Sadie and their baby.

Tucker and Emma start to feel deeply attracted to each other but because of his past relationship with Sadie, they both try to fight the chemistry that they share. But eventually, flirty banter starts to turn into playful touching and here is where Emma starts to feel like Tucker was one serious vagina tease! He walks around in tight fitting boxers and nothing else, knowing how it affects Emma and then he starts hot and heavy make-out sessions only to abruptly stop as soon as things are getting unbearably hot between them. He deserved a swift kick to the nuts for being so hot & cold.

 

 

Tucker and Emma will eventually push all their doubts to the side and give in to their desires for each other. It’s then that Emma’s fear that Tucker’s heart still belongs to Sadie, starts to magnify even more. She is plagued by thoughts that she will never measure up to Sadie in Tucker’s eyes.

Is Tucker still stuck in the past? Or has the time with Emma helped to heal him and bring clarity to his mind?
