In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.
Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.
We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.
Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.
She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.
My Almost Ex is a second chance romance between two childhood friends-to-lovers in Piper Rayne’s brand-new, small-town family series, The Greene Family. Coming April 6, 2021.
* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCED READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *
I was hesitant with this book because I am not big on books where the lead loses her or his memory.
But how they wrote this and gave a whole new spin on a second chance romance, it was awesome and I really do love Adam even more than what we saw of him in Cams book.
I also see how the music and food tastes that have changed on both Lucy and Adam can be seen as personal growth while they were apart for that year.
I like how the conflict in this book was mainly internal and that Lucy had to learn to only trust herself but trust in her relationship with Adam to make it through not only the memory loss and the fact that she did leave him high and dry just a year before with no real explanation.
I like how the simple conflict choices were not taken, as I fell that some of them are a bit over used. I love how the end presented a new set of life choices, and created space for more personal growth as well as professional.
I was blown away yet again watching Adam go from heartbroken little boy in the first book to this strong confident man who is will to work for what he wants in his love life.
I love how I was ready to hate on Lucy for leaving Adam in the mess we saw when we forst met the Greenes, but then wanted to be her new Bestie.
10/10 would recommend.
