Review: 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.

Thanks as always goes first and foremost to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept, for providing us a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.

So for my day 3 book for Christmas I did something a little different instead of a sweet Christmas book I went for a feel good book but in a different way. This book made me giggle at Kelly’s experiences with her Ex’s. Though her blindness when it came to Mark made me want to reach over and smack her upside the head, the book was great. And my heart went out to Mark so many times. Mark’s life wasn’t easy but its easy to see why he falls in love with Kelly and was there for her through everything. But I go back to my thoughts on how much I giggled with the series of events and the Ex’s Kelly spoke with.
