Once again this was a buddy read with Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions so HERE to read her thoughts about this book :).
As you might know now I love Meghan Quinn’s books. I have read a few of her books already and there isn’t one I didn’t love. When I saw My Best Friend’s Ex I was super excited to read it (even after reading the title) but I got even more excited when I found out this book would be about two characters from Co-Wrecker, which I loved.
I loved both Emma and Tucker. They were such great characters. Here’s the thing, when I first read Co-Wrecker I didn’t like Tucker at all. He looked like a good guy but the way he was constantly pressuring Sadie (the Co-Wrecker‘s main character) kept throwing me off but I knew there was something he wasn’t sharing and that’s why I love Tucker so much after reading this book. He was such an amazing guy and so sweet. I now understand his reasons behind what he did in his past but I just loved him so much. Tucker is such a broken guy since he had a difficult childhood and teen years but he grows so much during this book. He is also so supportive of his friends. He’s the type of guy who does everything to make his friends happy even if they are a pain in the ass. He was also a big tease and I still can’t understand how Emma dealt with that but he was still a great guy.
I also loved Emma a lot. in Co-Wrecker we know her as the mother hen. She’s constantly helping her friends and trying to protect them but she’s way more than this. Seeing Emma in college is completely different from seeing with her childhood friends. She’s more open and has more fun (since she doesn’t have to care for her friends) but she’s also someone who knows what she wants in life. Also, she’s funny as hell and I just couldn’t stop laughing with some of the situation she got in.
However, what I loved more was the relationship between them. I loved how supportive they were of each other and how they helped each other because their friendship always came first. I especially loved how much Emma helped Tucker even if there were a few times I got made with him. It also helps that these two had an amazing chemistry.
Once again, I loved the writing in this book. Meghan Quinn makes wonders when she’s writing and that’s why I normally want to read all of her books. Her books are not only funny but also deep and they can be really heartbreaking, just like this one. I also loved that the book was told in a dual POV (you all know how much I love dual POV) and how Tucker and Emma’s voices were so different.
Overall, this was an amazing book. It was funny and heartbreaking but in a good way. I also loved that it was about Tucker and Emma. I can tell you that Meghan Quinn already became one of my favorite authors since I always love her books. You should definitely give this one a try.
