When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn't be that big of a deal Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he's still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I'm trying to finish my

A few feet away stands the woman who captured my heart when I least expected it. She came back into my life as a friend and burrowed her soul into mine, making it almost impossible to breathe without her.

The latest rom-com standalone written by Meghan Quinn is filled with a ton of laugh out loud moments that only the authors signature brand of humor can evoke. It is a ”friends-to-lovers” story that at times will torture you with the painful

“Best friend’s ex-boyfriends are always off limits.”

I absolutely love Meghan Quinn, so when I found out she was releasing a new romcom I just had to get my hands on it ASAP. I always enjoy her humor, her fast paced plot and the characters she develops. I’m happy to report My Best Friend’s Ex was no exception. I was especially looking forward to reading something as controversial as falling for the best friends ex. OOOHHH… I think we all know this is a no go zone and ex’s are always off limi

With all the respect to the readers who loved this book, I must say that it has been a total disappointment for me! I almost DNF'ed it a couple of times. This wasn't a hot and forbidden romance that I'd initially expected it to be.

The book is told by dual point of view, both from Tucker's and Emma's.

The plot:

Tucker was once with Sadie. Emma was both his and Sadie’s friend.

The problem is, Tucker’s "ex" is not only his "ex" (not one of the many exes), she is the one and on

Girl code: Never get involved with your best friend's ex-boyfriend.

Emma Marks is quite aware of this rule, so when she has no other option but to move in with Tucker Jameson, she goes into the living arrangement as just a friend trying to finish up her nursing degree.

Tucker has the same thoughts, Emma is just a friend. He has no intentions of getting romantically involved with her especially since he's still hung up on his ex, Sadie.

Let me start by saying I had the highest of hopes going into this one. I've had great luck with the other Meghan Quinn books I've read so this seemed like the perfect Sunday book for me.

That being said, I never really connected to the story or either of the main characters. I skipped around, read the ending and eventually went back and skimmed the middle to make sure I hadn't missed anything. That Meghan Quinn spark was missing for me and in the end, this simply wasn't my cuppa.

Let's just jump into it, because subtlety has never been my strong suit. I'm about to get into some real talk right now, so bear with me. In your eyes, I may very well be wrong but this is MY opinion, and I standing by it, I really wish this wasn't marketed as a romantic comedy, I would've prefers if that aspect was taken out and just left alone. The beginning was perfect to me, the ending was perfect to me, but the middle at times was right effed up because of the heroine and her "humour" if th ...more
This is my first read by Meghan Quinn, and it most definitely won't be my last! I was in the right mood for this story, and it made me smile, laugh out loud, and even swoon at times! This isn't the type of read that I am always in the mood for; but it was such a pleasant surprise for me.

Emma is told by her roommate that they have been evicted from their place, and have two days to find a new one. It just so happens that she runs into an old friend from high school, and he offers for her to come

I so love this book. Now to do the review justice. That will be tough. I am in love with Tucker! Be forewarned! And I already know it is one of my faves so far this year... Hitting my Best Of tag!


I thought this was going to be another run of the mill contemporary romance, which I do enjoy reading. However, the story so much more than that. Meghan Quinn completely had me so emotionally involved and engrossed in the story that I just did not want it to end.

REALLY good! I gave the first one a miss but apparently the main characters in this book were 'extras' in that one. Complete standalone as you get a quick re-hash as to why Tucker becomes the way he is. Slow burn at its best and the author does an amazing job with the writing, pacing and emotions. Sex scenes were super hot and that bit at the end just made my heart melt.
May not be for everyone, as the hero deals with losing the love of his life prior to meeting the heroine. But i think

Meghan Quinn cannot write a bad romantic comedy! I swear every time I think this one is my favorite, she releases a new one and I'm blown away yet again!

I'm so happy that Tucker got his HEA, and that readers got to see a different side of him. This caring and considerate man with a heart of gold won me over from the very beginning. Even with the past weighing him down, he still finds happiness among his friends and Emma, and readers will love wa

After reading Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn, which I adored (my review can be found here), I couldn't wait to read her next book.

I really liked her style of writing. Her quick witted dialogues, fast paced plots, and wonderful characters.

Tucker Jameson and Emma Marks were no strangers to me. Both were supporting characters in Co-Wrecker. Emma was the best friend and Tucker the boyfriend that was left behind after the breakup. Honestly, when I realized what the storyline was about and that T

“Sometimes a human’s touch is all you need to heal wounds.”

My love affair with Meghan Quinn began with a rom-com and she totally stole my heart with My Best Friend’s Ex. This week has been unusual for me because I have two new entries into my all-time favourite couples list and Meghan Quinn firmly planted Tucker and Emma as one of them. These two captured my heart whole-heartedly and never let go. It is unusual to get such a deep and intense chara

What a fab read, loved it.

The writing was well done, the storyline was entertaining all throughout the book and I didn't want it to end!
Emma and Tucker were such fun, endearing and charismatic characters. They made me laugh, they made me smile, they made me cry, and they made me swoon.
Tucker was such a sweetheart, I loved watching him come out of the darkness and open himself and his feelings to Emma.

No time to write a worthy review...*sigh*
I got this free from kindle-unlimited, but I'm definitely going to buy this book, because it is a keeper for me.
I started out reading Co-Wrecker by this author, and this book is a sort of continuation of that one, since the H/h were introduced in that book. Since I enjoyed that one so much, I decided to pick up this one.
And oh my, did I love this friends-to-lovers story.

I loved both the hero (Tucker) and heroine (Emma)

I get so lost in Meghan Quinn’s books, I start reading an poof 4 hours have passed by; there is something so refreshing about an author who laces her romances with humor so that the story doesn’t get bogged down in the pain and anguish the characters go through. I love that she puts her characters through the paces and since she writes in duo first person, we know everything the characters are thinking and feeling throughout the book.

When you say Meghan Quinn, you cannot help but devour her works. She has this ability to draw you into everything she writes up to the point where you'll be obsessed with it, addicted and even begging for more. You cannot help it. She's got magic in her hands and a brilliant mind that can weave a story you'll get hooked and fall in love with. And this was what happened to me with My Best Friend's Ex.

It’s no secret that I adore Meghan Quinn. This author can have you laughing like a fool and at the same time swooning over for your next book boyfriend. And so in her latest, romantic comedy, My Best Friend’s Ex, Meghan has readers like myself going gaga over Tucker and Emma.

“She doesn’t need to protect her heart from me. She holds mine in her hands, and I’ll never take it back.”

When I first saw the title for Meghan Quinn’s newest release, I was a little on the fence about actually picking it because I’m not a big fan of the “dating my best friend’s ex” trope. It’s honestly just a personal preference because the one’s I’ve read in the past have been over the top and I just couldn’t deal with it. But it’s Meghan Quinn so I was willing to give her the benefit of t

I have to start off by saying that Tucker Jameson stole my heart. That man you guys, he has a heart of gold. He is compassionate, thoughtful, considerate, loving, and has the most beautiful soul. No, he isn't perfect, I mean, who is? There are things he must work through to finally live to the fullest. But my gosh, he's a special kind a man and I absolutely fell so hard for him.

This book had me at the opening line.... "Just stick it in." From that moment I knew it was going to be my type of Rom-Com. I haven't had as good a laugh with a book in a long time, so thank you Meghan for bringing Tucker and Emma together and creating this awesome duo. This friends to lovers romance will have you laughing, snorting, sniffling and cheering! All the feels. It was just pure magic for me. If I could, I would give it more stars.

If you don't know, I adore Meghan Quinn and I stalk her. She's aware and tolerates me up to a certain point. I'm pretty sure I might get a bit creepy sometimes but I'll own it. So naturally, I will read anything she puts out. I don't even need a title, blurb, or anything. She could send me a file that has a some weird ass emoji on it and I wouldn't hesitate to go for it.

I love her sense of humor but I also respect the fact that she can do a bit of the heaver stuff just as well. Kace from Repenta

Well, what can I say… whenever I pick up a book from Meghan Quinn I already know I am in for a whirlwind of laughter and fun and guess what? My best friend’s ex was exactly that – sweet, hilarious, and so romantic. But there is a bonus – the story is also quite heartfelt and touching. I laughed though the entirety of the book but towards the end I was crying fat tears from those damn letters…
