It is refreshing in the Romance world to read about two pretty normal people with real problems and real issues. Issues with kids, in-laws, death, and addiction. I truly appreciate an author who can bring out the best in their characters in those situations. This story starts on a very serious note and delves deeply into the aftermath . Trevor's ex-wife dies suddenly in a car accident and he is left to raise his teenage kids alone. The relationships are complex - Trevor is an alcoholic who has b ...more

4 Star Review of My Best Friends Ex by Shannyn Schroeder (Daring Divorces #2)
Trevor Booth is a recovering alcoholic who struggles to remain sober daily. Thanks to his drinking he lost everything that was important to him, his wife, children and friends.

I think this was my first book by this author and the reason I wanted to read this book was because it's a single parent book, which I love reading about.
Trevor is an alcoholic and for the last ten years he has only seen his kids on a weekend basis and even though he tried getting back together with his ex, i think too much has happened for them to go back. But it seems like his life is finally getting on track, until he gets a call that his ex wife was in a accident and he is now the sole pare

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 all family. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

DNF at 16 percent.

Not a bad story; will be perfect for some because it deals with a real-life situation and features mature characters. Those elements were what enticed me to read the book.

Didn't hook me, though, mostly because Trevor was too much of a pushover. Seemed like everyone - from his kids, to his in-laws, to his ex's friend Callie - got more of a say in his life than he did.

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.

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.

I'm always on the lookout for romances with older characters and this entire series fits the bill. Trevor and Cassie are both in their 40's. He's a divorced dad, a former musician and recovering alcoholic who lost his marriage due to his addiction, but has been sober for 10 years, owns a construction firm, and responsibly parents his teenage kids every other weekend. Cassie is his ex-wife's best friend, never married, a photographer who travels extensively but lives on the same property as his e ...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 lives in the coach house behind her house. That phone call changes Callie's life forever, as well.
Finding out that his ex-wife was in a car accident and didn't make it, means that Trevor is now a full t

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.

Trevor's I've-got-this-under-control life is thrown for the curviest of curves when his ex-wife is killed in an accident and he's suddenly the sole parent to his two teenagers. His marriage originally fel

A grown-up love story that hits all the right buttons!
Trevor Booth is a recovering alcoholic, and divorced father of two. Life has a way of bringing us to learn our self-truths when we least expect it, and those lessons are usually hardest. Trevor receives news that brings life as he knows it to a screeching halt, making him look deeper inside and make some very hard choices. Callie’s there when he needs support the most and he appreciates how much she loves his kids. But he’s feeling much more

My Best Friend’s EX is the 2nd book in the Daring Divorcess standalone series, Schroeder is a new to me author and the blurb about a single Dad is always a quick draw card for me; I had high expectations going into this book.

Trevor is a divorced recovering alcoholic with 2 teenage kids; he has his own construction business and is kept busy with his life. When he receives the devastating news that his ex wife had been killed in a car accident he is thrust into a full time parent role and shameful

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 a part Callie was in his kids' lives. He's kind of clueless when it comes to the routines that his teenagers have, and Callie is there to help and guide him. She also doesn't take his crap when he la ...more

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 jerk. And Callie is bringing back good memories along with the bad ones. One thing is clear though, he is attracted to his ex-wife's best friend and wants to explore where that leads.

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. Trevor Booth’s loves his children very much, but admits he plays more the role of a part-time dad. But when tragedy strikes and he becomes the full-time single parent, he wants to make sure he does this right. When his ex’s best friend steps in to help, she is determined to help out.

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 children very much but the everyday issues have always been his Ex wife’s job until tragedy strikes and overnight he becomes a full time dad and now he needs and wants to make sure he does everything right

When Trevor's ex-wife dies in a car crash he is suddenly the single parent to two teenagers. Lucky for him his ex's best friend, Callie, is around to offer support and guidance. When feelings start to emerge they both have to wrestle with feeling disloyal to the woman who once meant so much to the both of them.

I loved the way the relationship between Trevor and Callie develops. They have real issues that they need to communicate about and both of them make mistakes along the way. I loved the way

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 they fought to get to their happy ever after.

Callie was Lisa’s best friend. Callie was their for Lisa’s kids and stayed in her Coach house behind Lisa’s house. After a heartbreaking accident took Lisa

This book dealt with a lot of issues which that I appreciated since these things to really happen, However I still had a pretty tough time staying interested in the story, I had wanted to multiple times. So we meet Trevor a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for about 10 years but as we know that is not easy and he will still have to struggle and because of his alcoholism he had lost his family and was only able to have his kids on weekends. His ex wife dies and now he really has to step in ...more

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 didn't love that they seemed to fight every other chapter and then make up right away, it just seemed repetitive.
I really enjoyed the family dynamics of Trevor, Callie, Evan, and Hannah. I think the w

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 the kids are finding their new normal. With a tragedy this family has faced that something so beautiful could come out of it is touching. There is always a sense of hope for the characters in this book

Love is tough for the over 40 divorced crowd, throw in two teenagers and a successful business and romance takes a hike. I really enjoyed the way Callie was already in their lives. Trevor has normal issues that many can relate to and has a firm grasp on coping. The kids are a very important part of their relationship and it was addressed with respect and a bit of humor. Their story is part of a series with a group of divorcees that meet as a form of therapy, each book is a different couple. Alwa ...more
