About How to Not Fall for Your Ex
They dated twelve years ago. Because of an anonymous dating app, they’re about to unknowingly date each other again.
Timini Jensen doesn’t think there’s a point to dating. Relationships drag people down. After all, nobody runs faster when they’re in a three-legged race, right? Plus, there’s the part where she seems to pick guys who are only pretty on the outside.
When a friend asks her to test a new dating app his company made that doesn’t allow users to see pictures of potential matches, she tries it out. Since it’s all anonymous and she’s not even looking for someone to date, it’s harmless.
Except she really connects with a guy she’s been messaging—Jackson.
He’s sweet. And great to chat with. The fact that he’s her opposite makes their conversations that much funnier and more interesting.
And she’s about to find out that he is actually her high school ex-boyfriend, Jack Oliver. The guy whose personality flipped when his family’s business suddenly started doing extremely well. The guy who ripped her heart out.
Now she doesn’t know if she can trust that he’s the sweet, funny Jackson she has gotten to know so well through messages, or if he’s the too-good-for-everyone Jack she remembers from high school.
All she knows is that chances are good that she is not going to fall for her ex.
Meg Easton books make me so happy! I love the way she includes romance, a bit of comedy and great characters. This one has all of these as well as a great plot. I was kind of kicking myself that I haven’t read all of these yet. Reading them all in order probably would have made them make more sense, but reading on their own does work. I did read How Not to Fall for the Guy Next Door. Reading the rest is on my list.
I loved Timini! She’s the type of girl who is always late, wears high heels and coasts in to the city on fumes. And she accidentally finds her ex-boyfriend on a brand new dating app. It made me smile that he was always in trouble some way or another. She’s just really great.
Then there’s Jackson. Jackson is the type of guy who always wakes up at 6, makes his bed, works out and tries to beat his record getting ready. I loved the way he and Timini connected over texting through the dating app. They are complete opposites, but perfect for each other.
And then they meet. Timini realizes that Jackson was the guy who broke her heart. And that’s when everything falls apart.
I’m not going to tell you what happens from there, you’ll have to read it. But the journey was worth it. I loved the whole book!
