  • I’ll never be able to think about a speedo the sam

    We have another winner from Lauren Blakely! I think this book is my new favorite one so far. It made me smile, then chuckle and then flat out laughed out loud during so many parts, especially the swan boats. There is no way you can’t help falling in love with both Oliver and Summer and the rest of the secondary characters in this story. I loved how Lauren laid the ground work of their back story by jumping back and forth during the start of the book, it really helped to get a feeling of how these two have grown to be so close and such good friends. And the way that they finally realized that they were in love with each other made me a little teary it was so beautiful. This is one story you don’t want to miss.

  • Something For Everyone.

    4.5 stars. What a fun way to start a new RomCom series! LB has a knack of letting us enter into a world and makes us feel apart of its creation as if we have been there all the time. This first book is a friends to lovers / brother's best friend / fake relationship romance. And I have to say, it is some of my favourite tropes rolled into one. Oliver and Summer have been friends since high school, best friends for just as long. They know each other inside and out. Well, except for the bedroom, but Summer and her friend Stella have a theory on that, its called Stella's Law. But you will find out more about it when you read the book, and if it is true or not! Ollie and Cupcake have had to save the other out of situations from past ex's and this story is along those lines. Summer needs to win a writing competition to help fund her new gym, and this lands them both in hot water. Oliver being the ever loving best friend his is, thinks quick to get them both out of a jam. What I love most about a LB novel is the humor and banter she devises and how they feel so convincing. Oliver and Summer have a special bond, a long term friendship but also from losing a loved one. Once they start their fake relationship, and have to show some PDA to cement it, it starts them both thinking of the what if's. For Summer, she is in a fog after the first kiss.... and the second... and well, you get my drift. For me, watching them fall, and fall hard for each other without added drama and angst, it was delightful and satisfying. What's next you ask.... Logan, Summer's twin brother and his come back story. Can Not Wait!

  • Fun read!

    What a fun read this was! Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend is just what I needed to get my summer reading off to the right start! Oliver and Summer have been friends since they were children. Along with Summer's twin, Logan, the three have always depended on each other and been there for each other in good times or bad. Oliver and Summer are still the best of friends as adults. Summer is a hard worker and a very independent woman. She has her heart set on opening up a gym catering to seniors, which she's trying to secure the funding for and while she has people in her life willing to loan her the money, this is something she really wants to do for herself. Oliver is a man who likes to always be prepared. He's an attorney, he's wicked smart and he's got the looks to go along with it to make the total package. He and Summer have such a great relationship and he is forever teasing her and bringing a smile to her face. There is a contest Summer can enter that would help her toward her monetary goal should she win. What she didn't expect is just by entering, she was going to be sending her life, and Oliver's, into a bit of a tailspin! To save face, they put on an act that they are a couple. As things unfold, they do a really good job of convincing people they are together. Is it really an act or something they just have either denied or not seen? Is it the classic case of wanting to protect their friendship? I enjoyed these two characters and their relationship. The fact that everything was centered around their friendship was great in my opinion. I always enjoy the friends-to-lovers trope and this was no exception. An all around fun read and one you should pick up!

  • Perfect blend of everything!

    This was such an adorable, sweet and fun story! From the first page to the last I was completely riveted by Summer and Oliver and their fake to real relationship journey to HEA. Although being best friends for so many years, it was easy to see that nothing was ever really fake for them. I love how they have always been there for each other. They are perfect for each other! Their chemistry is off the charts and they are so cute together! As always Blakely infuses just the right amount of humor and emotion into this amazing story but tosses in plenty of passion and steamy times as well. I absolutely loved it!

  • Loved this Friends to Lovers Romance!

    I loved Oliver and Summer's funny, sweet & steamy, friends to lovers romance! They have been best friends since they were young adults, always having each other's back. Summer wants to open her own business to help seniors, but needs the funds to do it. When a letter she wrote to enter a contest goes viral, Oliver knows she was talking about him. Since he needed to look more responsible for a client, they both agreed to help each other by having a fake relationship. The problem is, they have both had more than friendly feelings for each other, but were afraid to lose the best part of their life if they didn't work as a couple. But when you click so perfectly and your chemistry is that electric, how can they not ignite when they have to be more physical in public? Oliver is a sexy British lawyer who is funny, and sweet, and Summer is quirky, kind and giving. They make such a perfect pair as they explore the best dating spots in New York, having fun, awkward mishaps, and lots of sizzling passion! This is such a wonderfully romantic and swoony story. I loved the dates they went on, their fun banter and their fiery chemistry was so palpable it took my breath away. We also got to know Summer's twin brother Logan, and their friend Fitz, and I can't wait for both those stories next. There is so much to love about this fun, witty, and sexy romance and I absolutely loved every moment of it!

    Thanks for your feedback!
