Let me just say -- none of this was supposed to happen. I didn't expect the letter to go viral. I didn't think anyone would figure out who Dear Sexy Ex was. And I especially never thought he would find out about it. Yeah, bit of a miscalculation there. But see, I need the money to fund my brand new venture. And Dear Sexy Ex, well, it turns out he needs me to save his business. By becoming his fake fiancée. Yup, that's the pickle I find myself in -- pretending to be madly in love with the charming, brilliant, and utterly infuriating man known as Dear Sexy Ex. Only, it's not an act. And he can never know.
Friends to lovers story between two childhood friends.
I am in love with Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend! It is exactly the kind of romance that I like to read. Lauren Blakely had me captured from her writing right in the beginning. I could not put this book down. I cannot wait to read more books by this author. There was so much romantic angst between the two characters trying to justify their feelings for one another that I became so glued to the plot that I needed to know what was going to happen next.
The story follows long time childhood friends Summer and Oliver. This isn't just any friends to lovers story. It is absolutely beautiful, funny in all the right parts, and very steamy. Oliver is one of my new bookish boyfriends and just wait he even has a British accent too to top it off! I could not get enough of these characters. The book shows that the best lovers are first and foremost always best friends and always people who are there for you no matter what.
One day, Oliver needs Summer to act in as his fake fiance' for work and that is when he realizes how much he has loved her since they were young. I do not want to give anything away but man did I enjoy this book. Parts were literally laugh out loud funny and I was smiling throughout the whole book. The two main characters' chemistry was on absolute fire.
This book was exactly the kind of book that I wanted it to be and so much more. I am so grateful that I got a chance to read it. It was so good that I could see the story unfolding in my head like a movie. If you want an adorable romantic comedy book than you have to pick this one up. Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend is one of my new favorite books and favorites that I have read this year so far. You know you love a story when you wish it could last longer.
