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

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.

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

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 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

My Best Friend’s Ex by Shannyn Schroeder a four-star read that will fill your dreams. This is the second novel in the Daring Divorcee series, but they truly can be read as stand-alone as I haven’t read the first and didn’t feel like I missed anything, I will go back and read it as I enjoyed the writing. Trevor was a great character, as you read his story, he will show you his true strength, he may stumble on his path, but his family will keep him strong. Callie gave some great passion to the sto ...more

What happens when your ex-wife dies suddenly and you start to develop feelings for her best friend? Callie and Trevor are interesting and believable characters as individuals and as a couple, but the real stars of this book are his two children. Schroeder clearly has real affection for and experience with teens, because she writes them with such warmth and humor.

I liked this better than the first book of the series, maybe because the conflict felt more true to life. There are genuine moments of

Callie and Trevor are thrown together again when Trevor’s ex-wife and Callie’s best friend, Lisa, is killed in a car accident. Both of them want the best for Trevor’s two teenagers who need them both. I loved this story even though the beginning breaks your heart. Keep reading because it will make you believe in love again.

My Best Friend's Ex is the second book in Shannyn Schroeder's Daring Divorcees series. It can be read as a complete standalone. This is the first book I have read by Shannyn and it definitely won't be my last. I really liked her writing style!

Trevor's ex-wife, Lisa, passes away unexpectedly, leaving him as the sole caretaker of his two teenage children. Callie is the ex-wife's best friend and has been a constant in the kids' lives. After Lisa passes away, both Trevor and Callie have to settle i

Callie is best friends with Lisa who is Trevor’s ex wife. Lisa passes leaving behind two children with a father Trevor that was at best a part time dad. Callie lives behind Lisa's house and has been a major fixture of the kids lives. Trevor is a recovering alcoholic. I wasn't crazy about Trevor he seemed immature to me. While the story was a good one and the characters were well written, it still seemed repetitive at time and felt like for me something was missing. While I may have mixed feeling ...more

I love experiencing new authors for the first time and Shannyn Schroeder is no different.

The story of Callie and Trevor is different to what I was expecting. As a more mature couple, there was a calmness to this most tender of love stories. Having said that, it was far from boring and certainly had times of focused intensity.

Callie and Trevor have a past relationship albeit as friends, at least on one side!

It is lovely to experience, alongside Callie, her growth from a strong independent woman,

I struggled with the one to be honest. A divorced couple, who quickly turns into a single parent of teens when his ex wife passes away. Her best friend helps him with the teens and it turns into a romance.

Trevor and Callie were real and at times raw. It was a real romance.

I really thought this was going to be a lighter romantic comedy type story but it’s definitely not. It was very good and has a lot of heart but there is nothing light hearted about it. From the first page it’s got broken characters in hard situations.

This book is about Callie and Trevor. Callie is best friends with Lisa who is Trevor’s ex wife. Lisa passes away and Trevor and Callie fall in love. This book deals with love, loss, touched on alcoholism and parenting. It was good and well written. Overall I would give it 3 stars because it was a little redundant. Thank you to netgalley for the ARC.

This is an engaging story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's not your typical 20somethings falling in love, instead it felt much more real than that. Both Trevor and Callie are 40something and bring their life experiences and foibles to the table when they are thrown together by the death of Trevor's ex-wife.

It was refreshing to read a novel with characters that have lived a real life and are fully formed adults and the depth of their characters made their story feel real and made me feel invested

I received an advanced reader's copy of My Best Friend’s Ex by Shannyn Schroeder from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was the first novel that I had read by Shannyn Schroeder, but after reading, she is an author I would look for in the future.

Overall, I enjoyed this novel and I found it to be well written. The primary and secondary characters were nicely crafted and I empathized with them from the start.

This is the second book in this series. I have to say that it was just as good as the first book. This book is about Trevor and Callie. Trevor was divorced from Lisa who was Callie's best friend. Lisa dies in a car accident and Trevor now has to step up or lose his kids. Trevor is having a really hard time dealing with everything and since he is a recovering alcoholic he finds it even more difficult. I found this book to be a really emotional read.

This is my first book by this author, but I really enjoyed this story.
This a series (I haven’t read the first one) about a group of divorced men and women who seem to be in their late thirties, early forties. This book is about Trevor and his ex’s best friend Callie.

I liked that these two were in their 40’s finding love for the first or second time. Add two teenagers and a complicated living arrangement and you have this story.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this ebook copy in exc

I like that this series shows something other than the bitter side of divorce. Trevor and Callie have been friends for so long that them consoling each other after Trevor's ex dies is an easy conclusion. I appreciate some of the topics that were touched on.
