An Ex for Christmas by Lauren Layne
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.
Review by Heather Mc:
Lauren Layne is new to me and I have been meaning to read her books. What I can say is this book was fun, exciting and gave you all of the feels. An Ex for Christmas was such a sweet and funny Christmas story. I love reading Christmas stories in the Christmas season and when I saw this I immediately was drawn into the lightheartedness it seemed to be and boy did it deliver. Kelly is a bit superstitious and believes in signs and sometimes it is to a fault. She seems to allow this to rule her universe and while I can understand the concept she takes it to a whole new level. There is excitement and fun moments but while she is going through her list with her best friend Mark’s help can she see what is right under her nose the whole time. I loved Mark, he was a loyal and sometimes grouchy best friend and I loved him. Kelly was the perfect blend of girly girl and smartass. It felt like an awesome hallmark movie and I loved Mark and Kelly, 4 awesome stars.
