Review: My Best Friend's Ex by Shannyn Schroeder

My Best Friend’s Ex (Daring Divorcees, #2)

Synopsis

Trevor Booth's life was just thrown a curveball. When his ex dies, he suddenly goes from an every-other-weekend, fun-time dad to a full-time dad. The dad part he's cool with, but life with two teens is like a roller coaster in hell. Thank God his ex-wife's best friend, Callie, seems to have secret powers that allow her to deal with the chaos.

Callie is devastated when Lisa dies, and she's determined to help the kids get through it. She's concerned about how Trevor will adjust to being a full-time parent, but she's having a tough time keeping her eyes off his ripped physique. Callie loves being a part of this makeshift family, but no way she's falling for her best friend's ex.

Review

I loved it! It's a very emotional romance novel. Trevor's ex-wife dies and suddenly he must learn how to take care of his teenage children. To make matters worse it seems that Callie is closer to his children that he had ever been. He remembers how close they all used to be when he wasn't a complete jerk. And Callie is bringing back good memories along with the bad ones. One thing is clear though, he is attracted to his ex-wife's best friend and wants to explore where that leads.

Callie feels obligated to be in Lisa's children's life. Their mother is gone and they need someone they can rely on. She knows that Trevor is a good man and he loves his children but he is also a struggling ex-alcoholic. But the more time she spends with him the more she realizes that old feelings are still there. She is attracted to him and no matter how guilty she feels there is no way she can resist this attraction.

They are bot
h thrown together by a tragedy and realize that things can be something more than just friendship between them. But will the kids accept their new relationship so soon after their mother's death? Things are definitely not going to be easy for them as they learn how to be in a relationship while doing what's best for the kids.

I think it's a very well-written story and I quite enjoyed reading it.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
