Hayden and Nick used to be a hot item, but their brief affair ended with a highly publicized breakup. Now the two are "just friends," excluding the occasional flirtation.
When Hayden wins the girls' division of a local snowboarding competition, Nick is unimpressed, claiming that Hayden wouldn't have a chance against a guy. Hayden...more
1. The Ex Games is about Hayden and Nick. Nick and Hayden started dating when Hayden first moved to Snowfall (yeah, the name is a little ridiculous) in year 7. The went on four dates then Hayden broke up with Nick. Now they hate each other, or at least thats what Hayden thinks... When Hayden wins the girls' division of a local snowboarding competition, Nick really doesn't care, saying that all the guys in the boys' division were faster then her. This then leads to a bet, a be ...more

After their publicized break-up back at the 7th grade,a little misunderstanding and their secret will to reconcile, is what finally throws our scroned lovers back into it,a bet..a game, something that actually broke them up in the first place...
i found the book to be both light and brezzy & defiantly a 3 star deserving for all the fun and skate-boarding this book went on about.the l ...more
Challenge information: This book has been in my TBR since November, 2012. It qualifies for Genre: Romance in my February Book Blast and for the Mt. Kilimanjaro challenge.
I wanted a quick romance read. This one definitely fit the bill, although the annoying factor was quite high as well.
What I liked: it was sort of cute, and very snowboardy. I am not a snowboarder, but I grew up on skis and there were a lot of aspects of this book that hearkened back to my days as a junior racer in a good ...more
I had so much fun reading this book!
It was hilarious, sweet and cute.
There were a couple of times that I found myself awwwing and sighing and giggling as I was reading this book.
There was so much chemistry between Hayden and Nick.
They were scorching hot without even trying.
Hayden and Nick used to be a thing back in seventh grade.
That wa ...more
I don't remember but there was an ad of a chewing gum that sounded like that...
It was a sweet rom-com and a fast and easy read. I liked the detail about snowboarding.
You may need to ignore the fact that the couple moves in a never ending loop of fighting and making out for no reason.
Case 1: When Nick confesses that he always sort of saw Hayden as his girl. Fighting after that was so stupid.
Case 2: During the comp, Nick declares Hayden as girlfriend a ...more
Plot wise, it was all over the place. I like stories about exes that secretly still care for each other so I was excited for this one, but....yeahno. I was expecting witty banter, not Hayden to think “what a hottie, we need to make out” over and over again. And Nick? My goodness, what did she see in him? He was horrid. They kiss, then fight, then kiss, then fight. This book was setting up a major battle of the sexes, but it felt like little kids fighting in the sandbox. Their ...more
FUN FUN FUN!! The book was a lot of FUN! I was laughing the entire time that I was reading this. It was a fast r ...more
Reread this book at the start of the year, and it was definitely a good decision! I was up for a feel-good book, and I suddenly remembered this and I just had the urge to read this again. Still gave me a massive laughing fit and brought the flutters inside my heart.

Cute and fluffy read!
Definitely my favorite Jennifer Echols book!
Super freaking cute! I think I said everything last time I read this, but, wow. Seriously adorable. I love when the hero/heroine have a history, and when they've become sorta semi-enemies, but overcome their issues by the end. LOVE it!!

This book was a fun romance set in Colorado over winter break. It's two main characters, Nick and Hayden are really interesting characters. Nick's rich because his family owns Krieger Meats and Meat Products (which sounds really big—l ...more
When I get down to it, Hayden and Nick were perfect couple material. They definitely had wit, banter, and sarcasm down pat, the Sparks were certainly there, and they had history. Hayden and Nick had liked each other the whole time they were broken up! Now, here I wonder, "Why didn't they talk sooner!" Was it a pride thing for him, and a use ...more
Hayden and Nick are a fun pair to read about. Echols writes great characters and these are no exception. But if you're expecting a story with the depth of Forget You or Going Too Far, you might be a bit disappointed. These characters skim along more on the surface, or maybe I should say they glide along on the surface since much of the book is about snowboarding.
I liked the chapter headings, each one a term from snowboar ...more
The story revolves around Hayden & Nick, they dated when they were in the seventh grade but it didn’t work out. Fast forward 4 years to their junior year. Throw in a boy v. girl snowboarding competition, an extra set of exes, a hilarious and endearing little brother who apparently loves to rap, matchmaker friends, a steamy sauna scene, and voila! It’s the perfe ...more
I'm never disappointed when I've seen that the author is Jeniffer Echols - I clap w/ glee, anxious to read get a new dose of her amazing writing. Shamefully, I drop other books am reading just to read hers because I know i ...more
Run away. Run away fast. Life is too short for that shit.
Also, I know nothing about snowboarding, but doesn't it seem the slightest bit unrealistic that all a girl would need to do to learn an entirely new skill category—not single skill, mind you, but skill ca ...more
Nick and Hayden are exe’s. Four years after (four long years of insulting and bickering with each other), as singles, they have no choice but tag along with BFF’s Davis & liz and Chloe & Gavin. Somewhere along the road, sexist battle begin, leading Hayden to challenge Nick with a snowboarding competition with an expensive concert ticket at stake! not just within friends but almost the entire student body! (even ...more
One of the things I loved was that I was kept guessing. Nick and Hayden were always at each other’s throats. I never knew if they were going to start making out or hitting each other. Also, their friends were so funny. Of course both of their friends were da ...more
