BRACE YOURSELF FOR THE BATTLE OF THE EXES…
Hayden and Nick used to be a hot item, but their brief affair ended with a highly publicized break-up. Now the two are “just friends,” excluding the occasional flirtation.
When Hayden wins the girls’ division of a local snowboarding competition, Nick is unimpressed, claiming that Hayden wouldn’t have a chance against a guy. Hayden calls Nick’s bluff and challenges him to a head-to-head boarding contest. Their mutual friends quickly take sides, the girls on Hayden’s and the boys on Nick’s, making for an all-out battle of the sexes. This friendly competition is bound to get heated–and if they’re not careful, they might end up igniting some old flames.
I absolutely adored this book! This was another fantastic book by the wonderful Jennifer Echols. Jennifer Echols has a light writing style that captivates me with every single one of her novels. The Ex Games at times had me laughing out loud and other times finding myself getting angry at different characters in the book. Nick was such a jerk sometimes, but I couldn’t help but to love him. He’s the hottie who puts up an act, and you know inside he’s really sweet. The Ex Games is filled with believable characters, who do all sorts of crazy things like write “Boy Toy” across the butt of a pair of jeans. The Ex Games is one of my top Young Adult Romantic Comedy I’ve read this year. I love the title – The Ex Games – I thought it was just about the cutest title ever! This is a must read for anyone who enjoys a cute, fun read! Go grab a copy, and I’ll see you on the slopes.
