In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.
Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.
We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.
Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.
She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.
Angsty, emotional read.
My Almost Ex is the second book in the ‘Greene Family’ series by Piper Rayne. It’s quite an emotional read. Adam and Lucy married right out of high school, they were THAT sweetheart couple, and everything was going great until their life imploded.
They’ve been apart for over a year after she left him. Then, suddenly, just as Adam is starting to come to terms with being single and alone, Lucy returns. She acts like she doesn’t know she disappeared without a trace and her explanation leaves him with no closure.
Lucy wants to be with Adam and she’ll go through fire to stay by his side. If he wants her.
The old Lucy seems a little selfish at first, but once you discover her reason for leaving, it’ll break your heart.
I loved Adam from the outset, even though he’d been kinda lost, it just made him realer in my eyes. This book is heavy on the emotional sight and lighter on the laughs, although there were still some there. I was invested in the story and needed to know how it would all pan out. Well worth a read, whether you’re new to Piper Rayne or a steadfast fan.
