Review: Just Exes by Charity Ferrell

Category : Reviews

Synopsis:
Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.

Lauren
Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.
The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.
I can’t blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away.
He doesn’t know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his.
It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else.

Gage
I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart.
Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn’t.
She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I’m a new man.
Two women ruined me.
One I gave my heart to.
The other punished me for it.

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Enemies-to-lovers, second chance
Standalone: yes
Part of a Series: Yes book 3 of the Blue Beech series
POV: Lauren and Gage
Steam Level: Toasty
4/5

Second chance and enemies to lovers are two of my favorite tropes. Done right, turning hurt and hate into love is satisfying. I’m truly enjoying this series and Charity Ferrell’s writing. Just Exes is sweet and heartwarming while also raw and heartbreaking. The characters in this series are funny and stubborn and likable because of their flaws. If you’re looking for a great second-chance romance with memorable characters, real emotion, humor and steam then puck up Just Exes (and the rest of this series)

Favorite Quotes:

  • “Forgiveness is a brave thing, son. A man becomes strongest when he bears no malice.”
  • I’ve heard hate sex is all the rage.
  • Does your body remember someone’s touch as intensely as your brain remembers your memories with them?
  • Your heart is big enough to give people pieces of it. You can scatter your love along as you proceed through life.
  • You’ll figure it out. It might be a complicated journey to get there, but love conquers all,
  • If only quotes were solutions to real problems.
  • Talk to him. See where his battles are, and join him in fighting those battles. Then, your love will be stronger.
  • Sometimes, you need to talk to someone who lets you see from a different perspective because it’s easy to get blinded by your own hurt and your own needs.
  • No matter what anyone says, when you have sex, you give a part of yourself to the other person.
  • Loving someone means their pain is your pain, and you’re there to carry them when they’re down.
  • That’s the shitty thing about mental illness. People are afraid to ask for help. They’re ashamed, afraid to be the brunt of a joke, and they feel weak.
