The plan: Bridget brings über-hot Lucas as her date to her cousin Katie’s wedding. That way no one will think she’s not over Katie marrying Bridget’s high school boyfriend, and she’ll finally prove to her family she’s not the overly emotional little girl they all called Bleeding Heart Bridie.
The reality: Bridget loses her job. Lucas is a cheating bastard. And the only way she can convince her neighbor Adam to come with her last-minute is by agreeing to chauffeur him on his work trip en route to the wedding.
The ruse? Pass Adam off as Lucas. The complication? Adam has a secret of his own. The feelings? Complicated, oversized, and undeniable…
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
The Ex-Girlfriend Experience by Ellie Cahill is a romantic comedy. It’s the second book from the «Don’t Ruin Katie’s Wedding» series.
This one is about Katie’s cousin, Bridget O’Malley, that was also the groom’s ex-girlfriend.
Bridget wanted to prove to everyone that she was ok with the wedding between her cousin and her ex. That’s why she had decided to attend instead of skipping. She was going to take her boyfriend Lucas with her but a few days prior she got him cheating. Which
was the same day she lost her job. Bridget was in a really bad mood. Then her hot neighbor, Adam Levy, presented the perfect solution. She was going to drive him around at his work thing and he would attend the wedding pretending to be Lucas (by her request).
Everything was going to be fine… Or maybe not?
This is one of the craziest stories I have ever read. The female character is one hot mess. She is hilarious and her situation gave the vibe that someone had cursed her. One bad thing was happening after the other, it was sad and funny at the same time. Adam was amazing. Too realistic, practical, and opinionated (in a good way). He was also sinfully hot let’s not forget that.
Together they were perfect, they erased each other’s insecurities.
About the plot: it’s very entertaining, a slow burn, with very good descriptions and many extremely amusing awkward scenes. The book is well written and told from the heroine’s point of view. Even though it’s part of a series it can be read as a
standalone. I read the third book first and then this one, it was totally fine with me. My favorite part was when she realized what was happening to her and changed her perspective.
I enjoyed reading this book and I highly recommend you to buy it. I will rate it with 4.5 stars.
