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.

This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn

The Hook: When Emma finds herself nearly homeless, through no fault of her own, the last person she expects to end up rooming with is Sadie’s ex-boyfriend Tucker.  And at first, it’s a little awkward, given how Emma sort of sided with Sadie when the two split up, but she soon finds herself back in a comfortable friendship groove with Tucker.  And before long, friendship isn’t all that’s on her mind.

The Verdict: The dynamic between Emma and Tucker was awesome from the start.  Once friends who’d drifted apart after Sadie and Tucker’s breakup, it was clear that Emma had a solid friendship with Tucker, too.  They just had to rekindle it.  And finding out just how much emotional turmoil Tucker had been through, practically all on his own, almost made me mad at Emma for a while!  Fortunately, Emma felt the same way I did about that, wishing she hadn’t all but turned her back on him when he and Sadie broke up, and before long, Emma and Tucker were back to joking around and getting along just like they had before.  Of course, construction worker Tucker looked like every girl’s dream.  Good looks, some serious muscle definition, and the occasional lack of a shirt had Emma drooling in no time.  The attraction wasn’t one-sided at all, but neither one wanted to be the one to pull the trigger — until it all built up to the point that it couldn’t be denied.

As usual, I loved the humor, the way the characters occasionally made fools of themselves and weren’t above laughing about it.  They were also quite realistic in their places in life — Tucker with a job in manual labor and Emma pursuing nursing.  No billionaires, trust fund babies, or unrealistically fortunate geniuses in sight.  And the chemistry between these two…  It’s just impossible to describe and awesome to read about.  But true to Quinn’s usual storytelling, even their sexy times were frequented with laughter and fun.  I have to say that’s one of my favorite things about her books.  Oh, and let’s not forget the secondary characters.  Tucker’s relationship with his friends from work was just brilliant, provided constant laughs, and showed that underneath all their joking around, everyone genuinely cared about each other.

The only thing I didn’t like about it was that it was billed as a standalone, which is only sort of true.  Yes, it stands all on its own, and you’re not missing anything if you didn’t read Sadie and Andrew’s story in Co-Wrecker, which introduces us to Sadie and Tucker long before they end up rooming together.  However, I loved My Best Friend’s Ex so much that as soon as I finished it, I filled my Kindle with all Quinn’s books that I hadn’t yet read, only to discover that I’d read these related books in backward order.  It didn’t affect my enjoyment of My Best Friend’s Ex one bit, but it did put a damper on Co-Wrecker.

About Meghan Quinn

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
