Title: My Girlfriend’s Perfect Ex-Boyfriend
Author: Peter Jones
Category: Rom Com
I’d like to wish Peter Jones a very happy publication day for his new rom com, My Girlfriend’s Perfect Ex-Boyfriend, and share my review.
I’m an avid Peter Jones fan so when I spotted his new release I jumped at the chance to read it. Having loved his earlier rom-com novel, The Truth About This Charming Man I had high hopes for Peter’s latest offering.
Jones brings the characters to life in such a way you feel like you’re having a cuppa and chat with all of them. Adrian Turner is no different. He is beset with insecurities to the extent that I shouted at the page a few times. Never have I wanted to slap some sense into a character so much. Having snagged the sexy and confident, Paige, Adrian tries to made sense of why she is still with him – erm because you’re a great guy, Ad!
At every turn, he finds himself in the orbit of the ‘perfect ex-boyfriend’ Sebastian. To the reader, it’s blatantly obvious why Paige dumped the jerk, however, half the fun of this story is the often hilarious encounters between the two men and the ‘my toy’s better than yours’ macho nonsense.
The return of one of my favourite characters from a previous book adds a great twist to the storyline and leaves you (or me!) shouting ‘noooooo’ at the page as the plot unfolds.
As allows, Jones has delivered a great story with plenty of humour, intrigue, and ‘horsey’ fun – you’ll know what I mean when you read it!
Many thanks to the author for supplying an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
Adrian Turner, Mountaineer, Secret Agent, Fireman… Ade would dearly like to be any of these things, though he’d trade them all to win the heart of feisty Public Relations Executive, Paige.
Instead, he’s a disillusioned school teacher, on suspension, after an unfortunate incident with a heavy piece of computer equipment. And somebody’s foot.
And Paige? Despite being his girlfriend for the past eighteen months, she still seems to have one foot out of the door and hasn’t quite committed to leaving a toothbrush in the bathroom.
Of course, it doesn’t help that she’s working with her ex-boyfriend, Sebastian. A man who in almost every way imaginable is better, taller, wealthier, hairier, and infinitely more successful than Ade.
Is Paige still in love with Sebastian? Why then did she suggest they get away for a few days? Some place romantic…
But when Adrian finds himself in Slovenia – with Sebastian in the room down the hall – he realises there’s serious possibility that he’s in danger of losing his job, his mind, and the woman he loves…
From best-selling author Peter Jones comes this hilarious romp about love, and the things people do to keep it from getting away.
Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.
Nowadays, Peter spends his days writing, or talking about writing. He’s written three novels; a Rom-Com (Romantic Comedy), A Crim-Com (Crime Comedy), and a Rom-Com-Ding-Dong (A sort-of Romantic-ish Comedy, with attitude). He’s currently working on his fourth novel, which – if it’s a musical – he’ll no doubt describe as a Rom-Com-Sing-Song. (Spoiler: It isn’t).
He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, staying slim and dating. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy.
Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.
