A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols

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 breakup. 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 they might end up igniting some old flames.

The Review:

The Ex Games. This was truly a fun read. Every expectations I had with this book were met. 

The story is about Hayden (Hoyden? *winks*), who believes that she was one with the mountains. She is a girl who loves nothing more than skiing. That is, after she and her ex-boyfriend broke up. Enter Nick, the funny and the hottie ex-boyfriend. Even after four years, she never want him to know she still likes him, in love even. But now that Valentine's coming and both of his friends are paired up with both of her friends, that's when she decided Chloe and Liz is on to something. Not that she'd object. So when everything seemed to be working out perfectly, an unexpected rivalry between Nick and Hayden has begun and they're too worked up that they take it on a different level of competition---snowboarding. With everything that's happening, plus the sudden snowboarding competition with Nick, Hayden just doesn't know what to do. Only that, without them noticing, some old flame starts to ignite in ice. ;) 

I loved how this book had been an entertaining read for me. I laughed (yes, like, LOLed) with Hayden and Nick's banters, giggled with their affection, annnd heartened with the girls' friendship (wish I have two bestfriends like Chloe and Liz, too!). I relished the story all too much! Jennifer Echols is really an expert in writing enjoyable romantic-comedy books such as this one.
