    Great read

    Loved this story. Trevor is so real, caring, and simply adorable with all his flaws and regrets. I enjoyed watching his relationships develop throughout the story. First with his kids then with Callie in a nice slow build romance. It's a wonderful story of loss, love, forgiveness, hope and most of all family. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Deeper Than Just A Love Story

    Shannyn Schroeder has created a well written story of how beautiful new beginnings can emerge from tragedy. As a family goes through the grief of losing a mother, best friend and beloved ex-wife, they learn to muddle through day by day until life starts to make sense again. The dynamics of Trevor's teenagers' relationship with his ex-'s best friend surprised him and he knew Callie would always be an important role model in Evan's and Hannah's lives. What he didn't count on was the impact she would have on him! Thank you to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for once again introducing me to another new author. All opinions expressed are my own.

    a four-star read that will fill your dreams

    My Best Friend’s Ex by Shannyn Schroeder a four-star read that will fill your dreams. This is the second novel in the Daring Divorcee series, but they truly can be read as stand-alone as I haven’t read the first and didn’t feel like I missed anything, I will go back and read it as I enjoyed the writing. Trevor was a great character, as you read his story, he will show you his true strength, he may stumble on his path, but his family will keep him strong. Callie gave some great passion to the story and some relief from what could otherwise be quiet a hard story. I am looking forward to the next novel I read by this author as she has a great way of bringing characters to life on the page.

    Loved this mature adult romance

    Trevor Booth is a divorced father of two teenagers, the owner of his own building construction company and a recovering alcoholic. With the help of his divorce support group, New Beginnings, he’s managing his sobriety, testing the dating waters and being a good weekend father to his kids. However, when his ex-wife Lisa suddenly dies in a car crash, Trevor suddenly is thrust into being a full time dad with all that implies. Callie Larson was good friends with both Lisa and Trevor but Lisa won the friendship in the divorce. She steps up and in, helping Trevor get his footing and gives his children a soft place to land. And, at some point, they both seek solace in each other. I loved that this is a romance between two mature adults and all that entails. It didn’t mean there weren’t any problems or issues, just that they were meaty and substantive without easy solutions. It required both of them to make difficult self inquiries, develop insights and face compromises around ingrained behaviors. Their challenges weren’t extraordinary, just the stuff most people face in similar circumstances on a daily basis; adjusting to new normals and redefining relationships. I was hooked immediately and quickly warmed to these characters. Their commitment to creating family was at the basis of every decision. But, their romance was special as Callie doesn’t hold back or play games. It was refreshing to experience two people in a relationship with honest and open communication, almost to a fault. I was a big fan of Schroeder’s O’Leary’s series and jumped at the chance to get into this one as it was also focused on family. No disappointments here, even though I started with the second book. I’m a stickler for reading in order but it wasn’t an issue (though I bought the first book for reference just to make sure😏). This story was tough to put down and I became completely absorbed in Trevor and Callie’s lives. It was impossible not to do so. I highly recommend the book and the first in the series.

    Loved!

    This is an engaging story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's not your typical 20somethings falling in love, instead it felt much more real than that. Both Trevor and Callie are 40something and bring their life experiences and foibles to the table when they are thrown together by the death of Trevor's ex-wife. It was refreshing to read a novel with characters that have lived a real life and are fully formed adults and the depth of their characters made their story feel real and made me feel invested in their story. If you are looking for a romance with a bit more depth, you will love this book. This is the second book I've read by this author and I can't wait to see what she writes next. I'm adding her to my must read authors' list
