Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Dear Sexy Ex Boyfriend is the first book in a new series, The Guys Who Got Away, by the talented and fabulous Lauren Blakely. Nothing makes me happier than when one of my favorite authors starts a new series and when it’s Lauren? Double the excitement! This is a fun loving, sexy, fake fiancée romance. I love a good fake relationship story especially when they start out as best friends. Oliver and Summer have known each other since they were kids. They’ve always been best friends but they never crossed the line into more. Even if they wanted to. Their friendship means more than anything. Until Summer writes a story that goes viral and shows Oliver in a not so good light. It was a joke, no one was ever supposed to know it was him. Now, they have to fake an engagement to save his business. It’s not going to be hard to fake the closeness. The friendliness. But what about the kisses? The secret looks? Are these really fake? I loved this story! Oliver is sexy with his British accent, handsomeness and intelligence. Summer is beautiful, dedicated and a true friend. I loved watching these best friends pretend and then fall. Hard and Fast. Already looking forward to more in the series!


Audio: Shane East and Andi Arndt narrate this sexiness duet style with Joe Arden and Kit Swann making appearances. I love duet style and I absolutely adore Shane and Andi. They brought Lauren’s words to life perfectly, as always.


Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend is Lauren Blakely’s newest romantic comedy and first book in the The Guys That Got Away series. I know when I open one of Lauren’s books that I will fall. Fall for the main characters. Start to fall for the secondary characters since I am sure I will see them again. I will also fall in love with the city they themselves are falling in love in. She sets it all up perfectly. Taylor Swift needs to take notes, Lauren is the queen of hiding Easter eggs.

Oliver, Summer and her twin brother, Logan have been best friends since they were fourteen years old. Seventeen years later, they still are. Oliver is her person. Summer is his. They just get each other. They know each other better than they know themselves. It’s also why they can bring in their prom promise whenever it’s needed. To be a fake couple. And after Summer writes a lovely letter about him and it goes viral, the promise is activated. To save their asses and careers. It has never been an issue before but this time is different. It’s not just a few minutes, a few hours or a night. It’s weeks. It’s pretending to be in love. For the world to see. They have become a hashtag. They got this, right?

Sure. Except this time it involves kisses. Sweet kisses. Hot kisses. Dangerous kisses. Kisses they don’t want to end. Kisses that they shouldn’t want with their best friend. The best friend they can’t lose. Their person. But what if? What if the kisses don’t have to end?

I seriously fell hard. Fast. All it took was the first chapter. Their banter is hilarious, flirty, and over all fantastic. It’s friendship goals. The teasing. The love. The knowing. I don’t know how they went seventeen years without getting together. Actually, I do know. They didn’t want to ruin what they had. Didn’t want to be a crazy or douche ex. They had enough of those. That doesn’t mean they went all those years without checking the other out. Haha.

Overall…it’s one of my favorite Lauren books. It’s a slow burn which was perfect for this couple. Oliver is a brilliant mix of cocky, sweet, funny, and flirty. Summer is the fantastic mix of sassy, smart, beautiful inside and out, and sexy. Together, they made me smile, cry, get hot and bothered, and laugh. I can’t wait for the next book!! You have no idea how much.


It’s sunshine and music, this feeling of his lips dusting mine with a soft, tender ghost of a kiss.


“That’s your punishment for Ollie?” she fired back.

“Watch it, or spankings come next.”

“Ooh, is that included on the fake boyfriend menu?”


“Fine. Fine. I’ll skip the rest of the laps. I was trying to do you a favor. I just thought, with you being my fake fiancée and all, it’d be even harder for you to look away when I got out of the pool. I didn’t want to tempt you.”

I roll my eyes. “I’ll do my best to resist you.”



Indulge in this duet narration performed deliciously by Shane East and Andi Arndt!

Let me just say — none of this was supposed to happen.

I didn’t expect the letter to go viral. I didn’t think anyone would figure out who Dear Sexy Ex was. And I especially never thought he would find out about it.

Yeah, bit of a miscalculation there.

But see, I need the money to fund my brand new venture. And Dear Sexy Ex, well, it turns out he needs me to save his business.

By becoming his fake fiancée.

Yup, that’s the pickle I find myself in — pretending to be madly in love with the charming, brilliant, and utterly infuriating man known as Dear Sexy Ex.

Only, it’s not an act. And he can never know.
