An Ex for Christmas by Lauren Layne #BlogTour #Review

 Named Best Book of the Month by Amazon
Love Unexpectedly
Lauren Layne
Releasing Nov 7, 2017

She’s making a list—and checking it twice. But is there a nice guy among all her naughty exes? The New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines returns with a charming friends-to-lovers rom-com.

When a psychic tells spunky, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she’s already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an “Ex List” and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they’re meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she’s never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.

Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly’s list break her heart, and he’s not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark’s always been there for her, but the timing’s never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.

 Kelly is told by a psychic that she has already met the one. Naturally, she assumes this means he is one of her exes so she decides to figure out which one it is by Christmas. She makes herself an ex list to help her out. Her best friend, Mark, has already seen these guys break her heart once and he doesn’t want to watch them do it again. He has feelings for Kelly and hoped she would feel the same for him but he’s tired of waiting. Will he give up or will she realize the one has been in front of her this entire time?
I love a good friends to lovers romance. There is no instalove because it’s been building through their friendship. The banter between Kelly and Mark was great and I found myself laughing quite a bit! I enjoyed the holiday theme in this book but the ending was a little rushed. Overall, I would highly recommend.
