My Review

HOW TO GET OVER YOUR EX IN NINETY DAYS was a cute, humorous, and fun romance. It's an interesting twist on the boy-trying-to-get-his-girl-back after he stupidly broke up with her trope. Readers of chick-lit, sweet rom-coms, and sweet romance may enjoy this one.

I loved the humor that started this story off. Or, maybe sarcasm is a better word for it. The story jumps right in to Presley's bliss over her boyfriend, which quickly turns to heartbreak. Her best friend then picks up the pieces with a challenge for Presley to stick to a plan she found online for getting over one's ex. It's rather hilarious and sweet. I loved the friendship quite a lot. Then there other fabulous moments that are laugh-out-loud hilarious that I adored. There was also some serious chemistry between Jackson and Presley.


I did have some issues with loving Jackson. He's great in that all-American way, don't get me wrong there... I just didn't like that he dumped her in the first place and then gives in to other pressures when he shouldn't have. He came across as unworthy and I didn't feel like he completely redeemed himself. I guess some of that also was that I thought he was going to have this really great reason for it all and he just didn't. I also didn't get the whole secrecy thing and why he wouldn't tell Presley (you'd have to read it to know what I mean). It wasn't worth it to break her heart if she was the future he was hoping for.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Yes and no. After loving so many of this author's books, I have high expectations. This one was enjoyable, but I also wanted to love it more.

Content: Some adult subject matter and humor, but clean.
