Waiting on Wednesday (25)

The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols

Summary from Goodreads:


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.

If I'm in need of a light, fluffy read, I do not hesitate to reach for some Jennifer Echols. Her books are genuinely funny (something other Simon Pulse Ro-Coms often fail to manage) and sweet, and her characters go beyond the usual romantic comedy stereotypes. So far, I have not been disappointed with any of her books that I've read, and this one's synopsis promises to be equally cute and equally well-written!

The Ex Games will be released in paperback by Simon Pulse on September 8, 2009.


  1. I cannot wait for this one! I've loved Jennifer Echols' other books!

  2. Sounds cute- seems like you are hitting up some real light summer reads!

  3. I love the idea of Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies - I was really hoping the new Harlequin Teen series would be similar (and funny!). I've never read any Jennifer Echols, but I'll have to give her a try!

  4. This sounds really fun and cute. I love the Simon Pulse Rom Coms. :)

  5. This does sound fun. I really like romantic comedies when it comes to movies, so maybe I should give the book equivalent a go.

  6. Rom-coms are great, so I'll have to look out for this one!

  7. OMGoodness-I love this author! I'm right ther with you-she's quality romance, not those other junky Simon pulse ones. I cannot WAIT for this book! :-D

  8. never read her - may have to take a look ...

  9. This looks good - I'm always up for a fast-paced romance :)

    Also, I've nominated you for a blog award - check it out here:
