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.
Lauren Layne has quickly become one of my go to authors and I have to say, I absolutely loved An Ex for Christmas!!!
Kelly is a fun loving teacher who is looking forward to Christmas break. Sending her parents on an anniversary trip means that Kelly will be alone this Christmas. Except she does have her neighbor and best friend Mark to enjoy the holidays with.
When Kelly makes it her mission to go thru her ex list and find her one true love, taking Mark along with her for the ride, the relationship between the two best friends becomes strained.
Kelly is looking for the love of her life and Mark is trying to get Kelly to see what is right in front of her face for the last ten years.
An Ex for Christmas was a fun, magical and had me laughing and crying at the same time. It will definitely be a book that I go back and read it all over again!! This is one of the best holiday books I’ve ever read and I hope to see more about Mark and Kelly!
