Fast and fun, this is a decent afternoon, contemporary romance.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

The cocky hottie is my ex boyfriend’s best friend.
He’s also my damn roommate.
And he just caught me doing something… private.
Living with him was my brilliant ex boyfriend’s idea.
I needed a temporary place to crash.
But me and the “EX” just broke up.
Not that I minded.
His million dollar smile had a way of making panties disintegrate.
I was doing an OK job at keeping my dirty thoughts to myself…
Until he walked in on me.
I need a distraction.
Something to keep my mind off of him.
What’s the first thing you do when someone says “don’t touch”?
Yeah, exactly what you’re thinking.
This is a full-length romance novel with no cheating and a happily ever after!

Thoughts on Ex’s Best Friend

Wright is an author I choose when I want something light and hot. While there is action in most every book and a sense of danger, that part never really overshadows the emotional upheaval the main characters deal with for each other. This book is no different, though it finds firmer ground than some of the others.

I truly enjoyed watching the highs and lows hit these two, and the revelations of the heart and truth that came their way. Plus, the main FMC is a writer – can’t go wrong with that!!


  • Sweet.
  • HEA.
  • No taboos, just an inner sense of right and wrong.
  • Great ending!


  • A few flash back scenes could have been avoided and shown via dialogue.
  • George’s obsession, or possible drug addiction, is never fully explained.
  • The idea that the agent dropped her makes no sense. All press is good press, name recognition- find a new agent. Or do what she did.
