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.
If you don’t know, I adore Meghan Quinn and I stalk her. She’s aware and tolerates me up to a certain point. I’m pretty sure I might get a bit creepy sometimes but I’ll own it. So naturally, I will read anything she puts out. I don’t even need a title, blurb, or anything. She could send me a file that has a some weird ass emoji on it and I wouldn’t hesitate to go for it.
I love her sense of humor but I also respect the fact that she can do a bit of the heaver stuff just as well. Kace from Repentance is my absolute favorite character from Meghan and up until now, no one even game close to him. Until FUCKING TUCKER. How the hell he snuck up on me the way he did, I have no idea but he did some weird voodoo shit and and made me lovestruck from the start. I will get on my Tucker rant shortly.
I’m not going to recap any of the story. I know some people like to have an idea of things but I think the blurb will tell you enough. Go into this blind. Seriously. You will want and love the slow burn that you get between Emma and Tucker. Their sexual tension had me all riled up and I couldn’t get enough.
My Best Friend’s Ex is hilarious, witty, sassy and fun. It also has a bit of angst that tightly binds everything into one amazing package. The banter back and forth between Emma and Tucker, Emma and her friends and Tucker and Razor is so fun and they had me rolling most of the time. And let’s face it, we all know that we want Razor to get his own story. I mean, come on…..dying here!
I really enjoyed Emma. We get to see a total different side of her with Tucker and her college friends. She’s smart, sassy and sometimes a bit raunchy and I loved that about her. The things that fly out of her mouth when she’s angry is just absolutely hilarious. Tampons. Enough said. I think she is perfect for Tucker and I really felt her connection towards him and how she moved into falling for him.
And then there’s Tucker. Fucking Tucker. That’s what I keep calling him. The man stole my heart. His past has made him alone and hurting and he has the oh so sexy brooding feeling to him. Until Emma comes along and slowly turns him into the man that we all fall for. The things he did seriously had me melting. On one hand he can me demanding but let’s be honest. He’s that way in the best possible place he can be. He has always been a nice guy but the things he does for Emma had me melting and my thighs clenching. I dare even say that he brought tears to my eyes with some of his gestures. The last part of the book had me clutching my heart and swooning for Tucker like I could never imagine.
“I’m drowning in desperation for you.”
While there are so many hilarious parts to this book, I really like the raw emotions that we got between Emma and Tucker. Real life issues were faced and we had to go through the process with them while they figured things out.
Overall, I cannot express to you how much I love this book. Meghan brought us her normal wit, charm and humor and slapped us with a beautiful story of healing, true love and a burning love for one amazing man. Well done, Meghan. Yet again, you’ve delivered us an amazing story and I can’t wait to see what you have for us next.
