MMnona - Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend
So far I’m 25% through this book, skipped numerous boring pages but, I paid for it I’ll read it. There should be some way to get a refund for this kind of writing. Sorry, but it is really awful! Save your money!
Suzanne Golt - I adored Summer and Oliver! Highly recommend!
This friends-to-lovers rom-com is another standout winner from Lauren Blakely. This is one of my favorite troupes, especially when the couple has known each other since childhood, and these two BBFs were just adorable and so easy to love.
Oliver is best friends with Summer’s twin brother, Logan, and in this case is not off limits! So happy to read that as in many books it’s forbidden. Her brother as well as half the town realize these two are a perfect match it just takes them a while to catch on. Oliver is the complete package–a successful lawyer, athletic, fit and toned, sexy with a smolder, and is British! To top it off, he is so easy going, fun to be around, and tries things out of his comfort zone, and not just in the bedroom.
Even though they’ve each thought about it “what if,” they don’t want to risk their friendship to try a romantic relationship, but as an article she meant to be personal goes public, they have no choice but pretend to be engaged.
Lauren’s books are all unique with each couple being original with their own set of quirks and aspirations. But her characters are always ones I admire and wish I could know in real life. These two actually enjoy spending time with each other, share secrets, and are the first one’s they each want to call when something good or bad happens, and they know how to apologize and mean it. Oliver is a dream and puts her needs first, wanting to make her happy, and Summer is such a good soul, so deserving of such a great man.
I love their easy banter, how they just get each other, and how they support and respect each other. And when they share their first kiss, it is just the swooniest, knee buckling, most sensual kiss ever. Lauren writes with such descriptive prose as only she can, and I just sigh out loud when reading it.
I loved Summer’s appreciation regarding learning something about herself from all her past relationships. Her tribute to Oliver as her “Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend” was so honest and hopeful. If you are looking for an easy, low-angst read, then try this wonderful standalone. There are wonderful supporting characters too, who if I am correct, will reappear in future books! Read or listen to this; it will make your heart happy.
Samantha B. Sokol - Interesting and different storyline.
Interesting and different storyline. Summer and Oliver have been best friends since he moved to town, and while it seems like they’re attracted to each other, they haven’t ever attempted something more. She has a life goal of opening a gym for seniors, and even though she works hard and has a great idea she can’t get anyone to give her the capital to start. As a way to raise the money, she enters a contest and writes about Oliver – and it ends up going viral! Not knowing what things are about, Oliver is confused but then uses Summer to help him keep a client after he potentially loses them after the contest. Pretending to be a couple and engaged, they finally succumb to the feelings they’ve had towards each other for so long, but when things need to end for the contest, they become miserable apart. Once they realize they’re perfect for each other and come to their senses, they decide to give things a chance together and everything in their lives start to fall into place. I expected so much from this storyline, but there was something missing for me.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

95one - Loved it!
OMG! I loved this friends to lovers romance. This is an unputdownable, fun, flirty, and delightful slow-burn story that summed up so succinctly the very essence of romance. This page-turning story completely encapsulates the madness of the first stirrings of love and lust when you can’t get enough of someone, yet they each have challenges they need to face. It was such a great read. I am not kidding, this book was everything. All the things—witty banter, humor, angst, emotions, and all of the steam. And the characters? OMG—talk about Oliver Harris! Oliver is British, a lawyer who is very, very swoon-worthy, sexy as hell, handsome, arrogant, and an eligible bachelor. Summer Clarke is very independent, goal oriented, and she is best friends with Oliver while also having a crush on him for a long time—she refuses to let anything come between their friendship. The problem? Oliver is also Logan’s (Summer’s twin brother) best friend. After a contentious social media disaster and . . . after Oliver/Summer share an epic kiss that goes viral—suddenly everything changes! Now, Oliver is starting to look at Summer in a new way—more than just his best friend and her brother’s sister. Can they just be best friends again? What do you think? They will fascinate you and frustrate you at the same time, but the banter was everything. The slow-building romance is packed with so much sexual tension. This book left me wonderfully content at its conclusion, and I can reread this book over and over again. Lauren Blakely manages to weave humorous plot lines centered on romantic ideas with artfully developed main characters. The storyline is fluid, and it will pique your interest. I HIGHLY recommend this book. You won’t regret reading this book!!
Laura__F - Fun!
I've been on an LB audio kick for at least the last six months. Her books are funny and the characters pull you right in from the very beginning.
Oliver and Summer are the sweetest ever!!! The prom promise and how they are always coming to each other's rescue is so cute.
I love how LB drops characters from her other series into all of her books. I'm so excited for where this new series goes. I'm counting down until Logan's story!!
gabbysreading - So in love with Summer and Oliver!!
Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend is the cutest, dreamiest friends to lovers, fake engagement romance. I loved this book!! It had everything I need in a Lauren Blakely book - flirty banter, amazing characters, heat and a lot of heart. Plus, a sexy brit that will absolutely make you swoon.
I love, love, looove the relationship between Summer and Oliver. Friends since they were young, there is a natural closeness to them. It's obvious how much they like being with each other. The tension that builds as they attempt to remain only friends while pretending to be engaged is everything. My heart hurts and melts simultaneously for Oliver and his reasons why he couldn't pursue anything with Summer.
Lauren Blakey has never let me down. She continues her amazing streak of charming, entertaining, heart happy stories with Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend. I wholeheartedly recommend picking up Summer and Oliver's story.
Stacyotr - Fantastic!!
I loved this fake fiancé/friends to lovers romance. This book is sweet, fun, romantic and oh so steamy. Ollie and Summer’s friendship and love is one for the record books!
mpatane5 - Loved it!
I thoroughly enjoyed this friends to lovers/fake fiancé storyline. Oliver and Summer’s banter is witty and oh so flirty. Their chemistry is sizzling hot. Drawn in from the beginning and hooked until the end. I also highly recommend the audio it adds an element to this story. Narration by Shane East and Andi Ardnt is superb! Definitely a must read!
starstacy - This sexy ex was charming & funny!
I love reading this author’s rom-coms! This book made me laugh out loud, made me smile, made me emotional and made me swoon. The perfect rom-com! Summer was just that - she was sunny, funny, saucy, optimistic, outgoing, caring and smart. I adored her! Oliver was a charming and confident realist, and I adored him too. As the blurb states, a letter by Summer goes viral and because of a business deal, Oliver asks her to be his fake fiancee. They were best friends since they were 17. Even though both of them had more-than-friendship feelings for the other, they never acted on them. But they were inevitable, and the fake relationship leads them to where they should have always been! There was a little hiccup in their relationship towards the end of the book, but what I love about this author’s rom-coms is that it doesn’t last long but it does make me emotional. If you want to laugh, be charmed, get a little emotional and forget the outside world exists for a few hours, then read this book! I loved it, and I highly recommend it!
*I received an advanced copy of this ebook for my honest review.*
KindleKat64 - Adorable & Fun!
This was such an adorable, sweet and fun story! From the first page to the last I was completely riveted by Summer and Oliver and their fake to real relationship journey to HEA. Although being best friends for so many years, it was easy to see that nothing was ever really fake for them. I love how they have always been there for each other. They are perfect for each other! Their chemistry is off the charts and they are so cute together! As always LB infuses just the right amount of humor and emotion into this amazing story but tosses in plenty of passion and steamy times as well. I absolutely loved it!
MaryW fan - Loved it
Wow....I’m in love with this couple. Best friends Summer & Oliver have never strayed from the friendship zone, until Summer writes a letter about worst sexy ex-boyfriends in an attempt to win some prize money for her new business venture. Meant as a private inside joke with her best friend, her letter goes viral & people actually guess that she was writing about Oliver, a successful lawyer & frequent player on New York’s Most Eligible Bachelor Lists. As clients start to question his legal abilities if he is such a lousy boyfriend, he moves quickly to turn ex-boyfriend into fake fiancé to save his business. Only what started out as fake was never really anything but these two figuring out that they are perfect for each other. Lauren Blakely writes great stories & I can’t wait to read more about these two & their friends in future books.
KellyMacLilac - Delightful, hopeful and as always, wonderful
This one really hit the spot! A sweet, romantic story
About Oliver and Summer was just what the world needs right now.
I’m not sure if this is technically a second-chance romance or friends -to-lovers labeled story, but whatever the genre, it’s a fun, thoughtful and satisfying read!
Oliver and Summer find themselves in a bit of a bind and you’re going to want to find out if they can fix it or not. They’re friends, they’re pals and they may just be something more. Think I’m going to reread this one right away! It’s just the best!
WendyR26 - Humor and Delight
Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend was an entertaining read. It was filled with humor, sweetness, steaminess, and just overall fun. Summer and Oliver are the best of friends and they call on each other whenever they needed it. And now it seems that they are both in need and this is where the fun ensues. I loved Summer and Oliver's interactions. They had great banter and they were just so comfortable around each other. These two were so perfect for each other. I enjoyed watching their relationship as it bounces around and seeing their feelings becoming exposed. I also loved the friend group. It definitely brought a lot of humor and I am excited to see more of them in upcoming books. Overall, this was a gratifying story that I highly enjoyed.

Sandy Sch - quirky and sexy characters
DEAR SEXY EX-BOYFRIEND is the first instalment in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult THE GUYS WHO GOT AWAY erotic, romance series. This is corporate attorney Oliver Harris, and senior’s home activity director Summer Clarke’s story line.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Summer and Oliver) using present day and memories from the past, DEAR SEXY EX-BOYFRIEND focuses on the friends to lovers relationship between corporate attorney Oliver Harris, and senior’s home activity director Summer Clarke. Summer Clarke wants to open up her own gym for people over fifty-five but our heroine struggles getting the financial backing from the local banks. Refusing to accept ‘charity’ from family and friends, Summer enters a Dating Pool contest wherein her letter to her ‘dear sexy ex-boyfriend’ begins trending on social media, social media that immediately tags Oliver Harris, her best friend since high school, as her sexy ex-boyfriend.
Oliver Harris had no idea how Summer’s contest entry was about to affect his clients, his life, and the people with whom he works, and offers Summer a compromise that will hopefully draw attention away from our couple: a fake fiancé relationship that, once again, blows up social media when Summer and Oliver are approached by the Dating Pool app in an effort to profile the Top Five Best Dates in New York. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Oliver and Summer, and the potential fall-out as both try to keep their fake relationship from becoming real.
Summer Clarke has been in love with her best friend for as long as she can remember but Oliver Harris has placed Summer in the friend zone, a zone that is clearly blurring every time the proverbial line is crossed. Keeping up their engagement ruse forces our couple to look at the reality of their relationship, a reality that is about to blow up in their face.
The relationship between Summer and Oliver is a best friends to lovers; a fake engagement scenario meant to appease Oliver’s clients. As Summer and Oliver begin ‘dating’ to keep up social media appearances, our couple quickly act on their feelings knowing they could lose their friendship if everything goes wrongs. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and erotic without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large colorful ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Summer’s brother Logan, and their grandmother Mags; friends Fitz, Christian, Jason, and Gavin, and Oliver’s client Geneva, and his PA Aunt Jane. The back and forth banter and texting is furious and fun
DEAR SEXY EX-BOYFRIEND is a story of friends and family, relationships and love. The premise is inviting and moving; the characters are quirky, sexy and fun; the romance is spicy and spirited.
joannf57 - Swoon worthy

Jaxwright57 - Entertaining Read
This is book one in The Guys Who Got Away and what a fantastic start to a new series, if this book is anything to go by Ms Blakely will certainly have a hit on her her hands. If you are looking for an entertaining, steamy, fun read look no further, this is the book to pick up. Oliver and Summer have been best friends since childhood, they have a lot of fun together, they understand each other and they get on really well but what will happen if they cross that invisible line, what will happen if the friends become lovers ........ This is a book with adorable characters, Summer is a strong, sassy independent woman who never really thought she needed a man and Oliver is a swoon worthy irresistible guy who I’m sure will steal your heart. I loved both of these guys but when they get together their banter and witty comments take this book to another level. This book is about learning to trust, it’s about friendship but most importantly it’s about being with your soul mate.One of the best romantic comedies of 2020 and I can’t wait for the next in the series. I loved everything about this book and all that’s left for me is to listen to the audio because I’m sure like the book it’s going to be one hot steamy laugh out loud listen
Marina Skinner - The ultimate friends to lovers rom com story!
This is the most amazing, entertaining story!! It's got so much witty banter, great friendships and hilarious moments and very sizzling chemistry.
Oliver and Summer have been best friends since they were really young and get along like a house on fire. These two are so good together, I often wondered if they were ever tempted to cross a line. When Summers article trends, needless to say the story becomes so enjoyable that you just want to be friends with all the characters.
Oliver seems to always say the right words, he's honest, most of the time, loyal to a fault and incredibly charming. He's also good looking. The complete package.
I loved that Summer was independent and had a great dream to open her own business without any help from family or friends. I also loved her sass and zest for a happy life not only for herself but those close to her!
When the online tweets get difficult to bear he cashes in on something with Summer and let's just say you will go on an emotional roller coaster.
These two are fire!!! Can they truly see what's in front of them?? How can they tread lightly and not sacrifice their friendship.l?
Such an incredible, lighthearted but also very fun read! Loved it so much!!
The ultimate in a friends to lovers rom com story!!! Cant wait for more of this series as its off to a roaring start!!
humanoid45 - Difficult to get through
I have loved previous books from author but this one misses the mark. Banter between characters is dull & difficult to follow, I don’t feel anything for the characters. I am sorry to say. I can’t make myself finish. I will try this author again so don’t give up
Erin Lewis aka Maimeo's - Fantastic comedy
If you are looking for a spicy hot and steamy read then Dear Sexy Ex Boyfriend is the book for you. Lauren Blakely is off to a stellar start in her latest series as this was an entertaining read that had me riveted from the first to the last chapter.
As I have come to expect from Ms. Blakely, the story was funny with characters you cannot help but fall for and whose story you cannot help but be drawn into. The chemistry between Oliver and Summer sizzles and as their relationship goes from friends to lovers all you can do is smile.
I laughed so much with the humour and banter, these characters are just so fabulous that you want to be their friends. I really loved Summer, what a feisty, sassy, independent woman she is, whilst Oliver was totally swoon worthy. Individually these characters were awesome but paired together they take the book to the next level.
This book had me laughing and smiling throughout and is one I thoroughly enjoyed, so much that I cannot wait to listen to it on audio. A great example of romantic comedy it is a story of friendship,love, taking a leap of faith and finding your soul mate. It is Lauren Blakely at her best and is one of my favourite books from her.
Cameron682 - Funny and Sexy.
What a fun way to start a new RomCom series! LB has a knack of letting us enter into a world and makes us feel apart of its creation as if we have been there all the time. This first book is a friends to lovers / brother's best friend / fake relationship romance. And I have to say, it is some of my favourite tropes rolled into one.
Oliver and Summer have been friends since high school, best friends for just as long. They know each other inside and out. Well, except for the bedroom, but Summer and her friend Stella have a theory on that, its called Stella's Law. But you will find out more about it when you read the book, and if it is true or not! Ollie and Cupcake have had to save the other out of situations from past ex's and this story is along those lines. Summer needs to win a writing competition to help fund her new gym, and this lands them both in hot water. Oliver being the ever loving best friend his is, thinks quick to get them both out of a jam.
What I love most about a LB novel is the humor and banter she devises and how they feel so convincing. Oliver and Summer have a special bond, a long term friendship but also from losing a loved one. Once they start their fake relationship, and have to show some PDA to cement it, it starts them both thinking of the what if's. For Summer, she is in a fog after the first kiss.... and the second... and well, you get my drift. For me, watching them fall, and fall hard for each other without added drama and angst, it was delightful and satisfying. What's next you ask.... Logan, Summer's twin brother and his come back story. Can Not Wait!
