I can’t borrow him.
He’s not a sweater or a skirt.
He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.
In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.
To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be.
Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.
Everyone needs an ex like Ethan in their life!!
It’s been a while since we were immersed in the NYC Mancini 'White Collar Brothers' world of Dom, Carm and Enzo. So, it was a delight to finally meet ‘the brothers’ sister, Blanca.
My Bestie’s Ex is the first book in the brand new ‘The Rooftop Crew’ series by the wonderful duo authors, Piper Rayne.
Blanca has just left all that she knows behind and to the small town of Cliffton Heights after reconnecting with a long-lost childhood friend.
But during a train ride to her new apartment, she meets a guy. Ethan is sweet and sexy, he likes to talk, and the get on like the proverbial ‘house on fire’.
Ethan really likes Blanca and is ready to ask her out on a date the next time they met up, but before that happens, he discovers she’s his magazine’s newest hire…
And Ethan doesn’t believe in co-workers having relationships outside of work.
But, their job actually forces them to spend more time together, and without even seeing it coming, he’s ready to give it his all.
Until, the shoe drops.
Boy, does it drop.
Blanca is suddenly faced with a quandry, one no girl wants to be in. Who matters most, the guy she’s just met and fell head over heels for- or the friendship she has just regained? It's a girl code dilemma instead of the ubiquitous bro-code we often see.
This was a light-hearted look at a subject that could be more difficult depending on the people involved. Blanca’s friend, Sierra, was understandably put out but she really needed to put it in perspective too. Piper Rayne worked their usual magic and gave us the ending we wanted but not without a little angst.
It was great fun catching up with the Mancini brothers and their significant others as well.
This book was a fabulous read and one I heartily recommend.
