My Best Friend’s Ex
By Amy Brent
Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi
Alice has never had an easy life. Her parents dropped her off at the police station when she was three years old and was never heard from again. She was too old to be adopted as most adopters want cute babies so she lived from one foster home to the next. She’s seen some pretty bad things and she knows what it’s like to go without. When Sam lost his parents and was thrown into the system, Alice (already a pro by then) took him under her wing. The two are like siblings and would do anything for each other. After they were kicked out of the system, when they turned 18, they formed the band Moon and never looked back.
They live in a warehouse and are struggling to make their band a success when the opportunity of a lifetime presents itself. Moon was selected to be in the Nomad tour. The problem? They are co-headlining with Obsidian, the lead singer being Alice’s best friend’s ex-fiance! Alice can do anything for her band … right? Even put up with cocky Connor Evans!
Alice makes it clear to Connor that she is going to make life together these next several months hell! However, the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to understand him and even like him. There is no denying the chemistry between them, but to give in would be a betrayal to Alice’s best friend. Can she resist or will she lose Lori forever?
This book started out a little slow for me, but once it picked up, I didn’t want to put it down! And, of course I LOVE rockstar stories! I absolutely adored Connor! He certainly didn’t live up to his playboy reputation! He was loyal and sweet and did everything in his power to make things comfortable for Alice.
I also really enjoyed Sam and how close he was to Alice. I’m curious about the relationship he obviously was having with Faye. This book reads like its part of a series so I hope it is one, so we can find out what happened!
There was a bit of a mystery in this book with things going wrong on the tour. I felt it was pretty obvious who the guilty party was and why.
My only complaint with this book is it could use a good edit. There were several instances with the wrong words in a sentence … mostly words in the wrong tense. It didn’t deter from my enjoyment of the story though!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and loved the sweet ending as well. It did leave me wanting to see more from these characters and I hope the author indulges me!
