MY ALMOST EX
Release Date: April 6
In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.
Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.
We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.
Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.
She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

This is the 2nd book in this series and while you don’t need to read the first, you may want to. You do see recurring characters (Ethel and Dori) who add so much humor to this series. This book is about Adam and Lucy. Their story hurts and feels good at the same time. These two have been in love since they were in their teens and were joined at the hip. They grew up, married and have a wonderful life. Until one day Lucy tells Adam, she is no longer happy and walks out of his life without any other explanation. Adam is obviously devastated and can not figure out why the love of his life just walked away from everything they have built together. His heart is destroyed and he swears off loving anyone else ever again.
Fast forward to a year later and Adam has just finally started dating. Even though his heart is still broken, he knows that it is time to move on and let Lucy go. Lucy returns but one thing has changed, Lucy was in an accident and has lost portions of her memory! She sees Adam and thinks she is still married to him! She has no idea that she walked away a year ago and no memories of where she was or why she left. Her doctor felt if she returned there, her memory might get jogged.
It was heartbreaking watching Adam have his heart ripped back open and the only love of his life back thinking they are together. It was such an internal struggle for him. This was a great book and I loved seeing these two reconnect. But there are some obstacles that are thrown into their path and you’re not sure if they can survive them. Look forward to reading more in this series!
