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.
I’ve read many of Meghan Quinn’s books over the last two years, and each one has been fantastic. She always manages to surprise me with her writing. Some of the funniest things I’ve ever read have been within the pages of one of her novels, but if I’m being honest some of the most deeply moving things have been there as well. Quinn is stealthy like that, though. She gears you up for a romantic comedy, entertaining you with the characters’ antics and witty, well-executed banter, and then when you least expect it, she delivers a blow to the feels that you absolutely were not expecting. I love this about her, and it’s one of the many reasons why she is an auto-buy author for me.
Quinn’s readers met the sexy, broody, broken Tucker Jameson in Co-Wrecker. We got a glimpse of the pain this man carried around in that book, but it was here within My Best Friend’s Ex where Quinn peeled back his layers and gave readers a good look at this complicated, soulful man. I fell really hard for Tucker Jameson, aching for him as he dealt with his past and slowly let his walls down to allow himself to open up to the love Emma was offering him so freely.
This was such a beautiful, passionate and emotional love story, and it drew me right in from the very beginning. I laughed, I swooned and my heart soared with Emma and Tucker as they discovered and fought for their love. This book had it all – plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, a surprising amount of emotion and some serious steam. My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn gets five smooches from me.
