How to Get over Your Ex was a super sweet book that I found great to unwind to after a long day at work. It’s one of those books where you can kind of predict what’s going to happen, but you don’t really care.

In How to Get over Your Ex we find ourselves in the typical situation where two characters are forced to work together. Georgia just made a fool of herself on the radio by proposing to her boyfriend in front of millions of listeners and he rejected her live on air! Georgia just wants to go

'It dawned on her in realisation as blazing as Cappadocia's sunrise that her way just wouldn't include Zander Rush. He'd come into her life bearing the gifts she needed to find herself again. Perhaps his cosmic role was now complete and the last twenty-four hours were just the most amazing swansong.'
Lessons on love and living are plentiful in a romance novel that teaches female readers the importance of self love.

True, this book projects the image of 'romantic' love - from its cutesy book cove

How does one get over an ex? By crying themselves to sleep? By stuffing their faces with chocolate? HOW TO GET OVER YOUR EX is one of the first titles from Harlequin’s new KISS line of cute contemporary romances. Think Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes, Jane Green, except shorter and quicker (but maybe not quite as swoony). The moment I heard about this new line, I knew that I was going to have to bite the bullet and try one. I am always hesitant to admit it, but contemporary cutesy romance remains ...more

4 Stars ~ Fighting back her tears of humiliation, Georgia's only goal is to sneak out of the radio station unseen. She'd just been utterly rejected on-air in the ears of millions of listeners. She's ever so grateful for the kindness of the man who joins her in the elevator and shields her from curious eyes and then helps her escape the building through the employee garage. Zander's on-air Valentine's Promotion took a turn no one had ever dreamed. The poor woman's marriage proposal had been reje ...more

Good book. When Georgia's on-air proposal is rejected by her boyfriend, she flees the studio in humiliation. Then she finds out that she still needs to honor her contract with the radio station even though there is no wedding and honeymoon to cover. So the station manager, Zander, comes up with the idea of the Year of Georgia, where she takes that time to do the things she has always wanted to do and reinvent herself. I liked both Georgia and Zander. Georgia started out wondering what was so wro ...more

Georgia Stone faces the ultimate humiliation when her live on-air radio proposal to her boyfriend is awkwardly turned down. After she flees the radio station building, station manager Zander Rush, whose promotion this was, feels the need to both salvage something publicity wise and also give something to Georgia. So he proposes that she take the $50,000 that would’ve gone towards her dream wedding and honeymoon and use it for the “Year of Georgia” – a year spent getting to know what she really w ...more

I like Georgia so much. Her boyfriend turns down her on-air marriage proposal and, instead of being able to crawl into a dark cave for a few months, she has to get back on her feet in full view of the radio audience! It would be so easy for her to have a pity party but she doesn’t do that. The activities she chooses for her re-invention are things that she’s actually interested in and thinks she’ll have a good time doing. The only catch? Za

"How To Get Over Your Ex" by Nikki Logan is my first experience with Harlequin's new "Kiss" series, and so far so good! This one reads like a romantic comedy movie, and I'm hoping this will be a common theme for the "Kiss" books because it makes it fun. Nice balance of boy meets girl romance with the perfect about of tension and relationship issues.

The following may or may not contain spoilers.

Alright, so starts my reading of the new line of books from Harlequin Kiss. To date, I've read two of the titles from Harlequin Kiss and I have to say that even though these books are pretty short, they don't read like short stories. They read like full length stories with all of the emotions and everything packed in.

This story follows Georgia and Zander as they go from class to class, from country to country and fall in love. Georgia proposes to her boyfriend Daniel on air as part of a Valentin

Once in a while, I like to indulge in cozy contemporary romances just to relax because they always leave me in a good mood. While How To Get Over Your Ex had an interesting and fun sounding premise, I didn't find myself being thoroughly enjoyed because for the most part I was bored out of my mind.

Georgia Stone proposes to her boyfriend on air only to have him reject his proposal. Humiliated, Georgia wants nothing to do with the string of paparazzi and the pity-stares of the public. Unfortunately

Georgia Stone proposes marriage to her boyfriend of one year LIVE on a radio station.
What she doesn't anticipate is him saying NO. (Can you imagine that? LIVE on air with a no...??) She's devastated, of course.
She quickly exists the building through the elevator where she meets Zander Rush.

He helps her by helping her escape out of the building, unnoticed and humiliated.

What Georgia is unaware of is Zander is actually the one that had the idea of proposing LIVE on air throug

I was looking for a fun, quick read - so I pulled up Netgalley to see what they had available, and How To Get Over Your Ex by Nikki Logan was one of the first HQN books that popped up. The cover was cute, and I had been wanting to give their new KISS line a try - so I jumped in! And I was pleasantly pleased with what I found!

Georgia is such a fun leading lady - she's just suffered the ultimate humiliation (She proposed on radio to her boyfriend of a year, and he said No!) and now she has a cont
Membaca sinopsis di covernya, sepertinya menarik. Worth for a try.

I really wanted to love “How To Get Over Your Ex,” because Nikki told a good story and gave a great set-up premise, but I had such a hard time reading it, I can’t honestly give this book the five stars on the quality vote. I admit to going through some personal and family issues while reading this book and that may have colored my view. But what I do know is that it took me a long time to finally finish it. I’d pick it up and the words seemed confusing, the characters indefinable, so it took me ...more

Imagine feeling confident enough in your relationship to actually propose on air. Even as much I love my Hubby and know that he loves me, I never would have done it.

This seems to be poor Georgia's lot in life. Her boyfriend's sister convinces her to enter a contest at the local radio station to win a free wedding and the chance to propose on air on Valentine's Day. As luck would have it, she wins. Georgia not only proposed, but got turned down - with a long explanation as to why. Could it have

Omigod! With Valentine's Day coming up, this was a 'must read.' I know we've all listened to radio stations where they've talked someone into doing something that concerned their significant other. Well, this radio station in London did just that when they held a contest for the wedding of a lifetime. All the winner had to do was propose – on air – to their unsuspecting partner.

When Georgia Stone won, she just knew her boyfriend, Dan, would accept

Fun, breezy read, perfect for the holiday break!

How To Get Over Your Ex is the first Kiss title that I picked up. I have read and enjoyed several of Nikki Logan’s books, so I was eager to dive into this one. The premise of being rejected on live radio intrigued me, and I wondered how Georgia would handle such a publically humiliating incident. When she puts her head down and runs, I couldn’t blame her. My gosh! How mortifying to learn how badly you’ve misread your relationship! While Georgia bel

Georgia Stone has been stuck in a rut... for a really long time. So, when she hears about Radio EROS's Valentine's Day promotion - propose to your significant other on air and win the wedding of your dreams (worth $50,000) - she takes it as a divine sign that its time to give her boyfriend the kick in the butt that he needs... that they both need. Unfortunately, what Georgia mistook for a rut, her boyfriend saw as a merely temporary relationship and rejects her... on air... to thousands of liste ...more

How To Get Over Your Ex reads as a romantic comedy that would work perfectly on the big screen. If you’re a fan of movies that start off with a heroine down on her luck, a standoffish hero who has been burnt before and a Big Romantic Gesture at the end, then this is the book for you.

It is also well and truly a Valentine’s Day book, starting and finishing at the most romantic time of the year.

But oh boy the first part of this book is painful to get through – just as I knew

It’s not very often I read adult novels anymore mainly because I don’t have the time. The majority of what I receive for review is young adult so those and uni books pretty much take over my life. However, I have really been trying to add in something different at least once or twice a month and this is one that I read during December.

How To Get Over your Ex was the perfect book to take me out of my reading slump and at the same time remind me why I read so much Chick Lits back in the day and why I loved it s much. I know many people think chick lit books all have the same old story and happy ending but you know what? if it keeps me engaged, entertained, and happy then why not? The saying "if it isn't broken, then why fix it?" suits this situation.

The story begins straightaway with the main protagonist proposing to her boyfr

How To Get Over You Ex is a very cute story, I didn't find it overly romantic as the cover suggested, I felt it was more focused on the self discovery aspect. Georgia planned on proposing to her boyfriend on Valentine's Day live at the radio show, but it backfired her when the guy rejected. I felt so bad for her, proposing someone on air is hard enough, and then getting rejected in front of everyone is truly horrible, but the best part about Georgia was that she was a

Breaking up is hard enough, but being jilted by your boyfriend on radio and becoming a national laughing stock or poor dear (depending on who you ask) proves to offer a good story and plenty of sizzle in Nikki Logan's How to Get Over Your Ex.

I was not expecting anything special from the contemporary novel. I thought it would be short, sweet and a good way to pass the time. In the end it was all them things but it was also a hell of a lot more. To my great surprise I found myself really, really liking this.
Firstly I LOVED that this book was set in London. Don’t get me wrong, I love America (where most the books I read are set) but it was so nice to see my own city represented.

Georgia makes a huge mistake by proposing to her boyfriend live on a St. Valentine's Day radio show in London. If he accepts the wedding will be financed by the show - he declines. Sadder and wiser, she flees the scene. But she's still under contract to the show.

Zander, the radio station manager, runs marathons for a sense of challenge. He suggests a way for the show to get value and Georgia to save face. For the next year, the practical plant expert at Kew Gardens will be financed and interview

The characters we both the kind of every day people you expect to find, Zander being the overbearing in control of every situation one and Georgia the one who is utterly ashamed of the one chance in life she took and in the end lost it all.
