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 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.

I wasn't sure if I was going to love this one based on the premise. But, I was pleasantly surprised. And I love that this is a romance that is focused on an older hero and heroine. It was nice to see characters with more life experience and more to bring to the table for each other. The story was we ...more

By Bette June 10, 2019

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 a ...more

Trevor really doesn't hold anything back, “you really want to know?” She nodded and gulped water. “You looked ready to hump the sink.” She snorted and choked on her water." I liked this book, Callie and Trevor really did balance each other out. ...more

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a honest review.

My Best Friend’s Ex is the second book in the Daring Divorcees series by Shannyn Schroeder. It is currently scheduled for release on June 10 2019. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but I think returning readers will enjoy seeing characters from the divorcee support group come back in each book ...more

I love Shannyn's books and this one was no different. Trevor is a recovering addict who only sees his kids sporadically. He has a solid group of friends and a successful construction company. When he recieves a phone call one day, everything changes. Callie is Trevor's ex's best friend. She also liv ...more

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 6/13/19.

I am really enjoying this series! Older heroes and heroines, fumbling their way into starting over...the series is connected by the friendships that grew out of a divorce support group, but each book should work just fine as a standalone if needed.

Trev ...more

A grown-up love story that hits all the right buttons!

My Best Friend's Ex put an interesting spin on this particular branch of forbidden: Trevor's ex-wife and Callie's best friend, Lisa, dies pretty much at the onset of the story in a tragic car accident. As the story unfolds, they lean on each other in their mourning, and Trevor really sees how big of ...more

By Fizza June 04, 2019

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 ...more

My Best Friend’s Ex by Shannyn Schroeder is the second book in the Daring Divorcees series, but the first one I read. I did not feel liked I missed anything and enjoyed this book very much.

4.5 Stars for My Best Friend’s Ex
This is book 2 in the Darling Divorcees but it can certainly be read as a stand-alone, I know this because I haven’t read book 1 yet and I still throughly enjoyed this single parent romance.
Up until now Trevor Booth has only been a part time dad, he loves his child ...more

Four stars!

I really enjoyed this book. Their was plenty of growth in each character and the relationship was a slow burn. We watched as two people who were in mourning found each other. They relied on each other and even though their relationship was one that was a bit awkward but totally adorable t ...more

By Kathleen June 04, 2019

While reading this book, I was able to see myself in Callie. She's a free spirit who loves to travel. The other main character, Trevor, is a hardworking now full time father after his ex-wife Lisa passes away suddenly. I liked that these characters were down to earth and had real world problems. I d ...more

4 stars
The Beginning of this one hits you right in the heart. I shed a few tears while reading. I could feel the kids' heartbreak. It may be a little uncouth to some with Trevor and Callie finding a connection, but as a reader you can see they do it with utmost respect to Lisa. Callie, Trevor, and t ...more
