MY BEST FRIEND’S EX
New Adult STANDALONE Romantic Comedy
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 since 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.
First of all, I feel like I need to give y’all a little disclaimer. If you’ve read my previous Meghan Quinn review (here it is, if you want to check it out) then this is going to sound extremely repetitive but there is nothing I can do. Meghan writes such amazing stories that it is hard for me to not gush about them the same way. So don’t blame me and my lack of creativity, blame Meghan and her super creative mind.
Emma is a nursing student, she loves taking care of people. Unfortunately for her, her landlord couldn’t care less about her and the possibility of her becoming a homeless.
With little to pretty much no time at all for her to find a new apartment, she’s desperate enough to accept Tucker Jameson’s—who just so happens to be her best friend’s ex—offer and move in with him until she graduates.
Of course, Emma knows she’s not to lust after Tucker. That’s part of some kind of girl code, right? Plus, she knows he’s probably still not over her best friend and that makes him completely off-limits.
Well, let’s just say Emma has always been a good girl and Tucker can turn saints into sex-crazed humans. So naturally, lines are crossed and as a result, hearts are broken.
Holy smoke, Tucker’s giving me some pretty strong Miles Archer (Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover) vibes. Tucker claims he left the past behind but he’s actually holding onto it like it was just yesterday when the disaster came and destroyed all of his plans. He’s the type of person who lets his past dictate his future. But unlike other people and unlike Miles, Tucker is not an asshole. He’s actually a pretty good man and he doesn’t sleep around with every single woman he crosses paths with. He is one of the sweetest male characters I’ve ever read. And that was a great turn of events, in my opinion.
The only thing about this book that I don’t like is that Tucker’s on the cover. I can never ever, for the life of me, imagine characters like the models on the covers and that drives me nuts. Because I always feel terrible for judging the model and thinking he/she is not beautiful enough, not ugly enough, not ripped enough, not curvy enough, just not enough to reach my ideal of what a character looks like in my mind. But there’s nothing I can do about that and in the end, the story is always the most important element.
I demand you write My Best Friend’s Ex next to your “To Be Read” list right this moment. Grab your pencil and write those words down because you’ll need them for that moment of rebellion when you won’t want to follow your list order and you’ll need a short and fun story to make your heart happy. A book that you can read in one sitting and it’s not dripping with drama. A story with simmering sexual tension, with laugh-out-loud moments, with that one moment when your stomach drops because some character just about ruined everything, with that one moment when you know it’s not all ruined and there’s still hope of a happy ending. This is the book you’ll want to pick up.
PSA: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT read the last chapter and epilogue while listening to Surround You by Echosmith because you will cry your heart out. Unless you want to cry, then by all means, turn up the volume.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
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!
