Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend

by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Contemporary Romance, HEA
Available on Kindle and in Paperback

Down & Dirty

A sweet, pool side worthy read, this is a HEA guaranteed stand alone romance that will make you smile.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

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.

Thoughts on Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend


This is a sweet, simple and straight forward romance – the kind that leaves you with a soft smile and a HEA you can cherish. It’s the soft kind, with easily overcome drama and just the right amount of heat.

In a word? Charming.

I enjoyed the snark and wit tossed between characters, along with the building heat as realizations were made and decisions come to.

What I did not like? The apparent power of social media. I realize we live in the modern world and many big cities (and quite a few small ones) are inundated with the expectations and demands social media can press upon…. but for a private life to affect the very public one, not to mention a career? That is bothersome, and though this book seems to take it a step farther than normal, it also seems to be rather accurate. Ugh.

My Final Verdict on Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend

Sweet, contemporary and incredibly ‘modern’ – this is a feel good read that offers that soft romantic feeling and leaves you with a smile.
