I can’t borrow him.

He’s not a sweater or a skirt.

He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be. 

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

My Review

Holy Sweetness Overload Batman!! I absolutely positively fell head over heels in love with Ethan and Blanca’s story. The title of this story makes it super intriguing in and of itself…I mean come on My Bestie’s Ex! We all know that’s a big NO, NO!! 


Right?! This is the first book in a new series of stand-alones called the Rooftop Crew. So here we have this gorgeously curvy Italian bombshell who meets an amazingly hot guy on the Sunday night train. He seemed perfect, the situation was like out of a movie, they had an instant connection, almost kismet. Well except for just a couple of minor details, dating faux pas if you will. Each of which alone could be deal breakers by themselves, but alas they were pulling dating deal breaker doubles.  BUT I LOVED THEM ANYWAY!!

Blanca just had a really horrible day. When she runs into an old friend, Sierra, they are able to quickly reconnect and the catastrophe that was her current situation starts to look up. She moved out of the city to the smallish suburb of Clifton Heights and quickly immersed herself into Sierra’s small group of friends know as the “Rooftop Crew.” BTW I love this crew of friends! They are FABULOUS! 

When she went home to visit her family for their standing Sunday dinner she couldn’t have prepared for the connection she would form with the hottie on the train. They were flirtatious and fun. She’s sassy and sweet and fun-loving but she sees what her brothers have found and she wants that, she can almost picture dreams of that with Ethan from the train. 

Ethan is this funny, gorgeous guy but he’s hiding big parts of his life from those around him. He won’t allow himself to get close to others. So when he walks on Monday morning to find the bombshell he was falling for on the train  is his new coworker, he knows immediately he will shut down any shot they did have at dating. 


The chemistry between these two is off the chain. They are hot, they are hilarious, their chemistry is combustible. The back and forth with these two about gives you whiplash but that’s part of what makes it so amazing. This story was the perfect blend of sweet and swoony but flaming hot and delicious. There was this magical balance of just the amount of frustration and angst I’m looking for, I call it a sweet spot.  It’s great for your soul, y’all!

It keeps you interested and engaged. There was not a dull moment in this book. I was never tempted to skip ahead. It kept me from page one and I flew through it anyway because I had to know what was happening from one page to the next. From Ethan to Blanca, to the rooftop crew, to Blanca’s brothers. You have an entire cast of secondary characters that add even more humor and charm and tons of giggles.

So you’ve been warned. If you are looking for a little bit lighter of a read with just  a little bit of frustration and angst thrown in, this is the perfect book for you! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- Ethan and Blanca are wonderful characters, they were not perfect and both had some stuff they needed to work though, but together they were great. The Rooftop crew are an amazing group (one took me longer to come around to, but imma a fan now 😉) and I love what they each bring to the story. Each person is totally unique and I can’t wait for the magic that I know will be brought in each of their stories. So start this series today!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- I’m gonna call him edible Ethan, because he is so darn delicious!! The scenes were super hot, yet sweet at the same time So pretty much perfection!! 🔥😍🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- OMG!! This is the #HappyEnding we all want lol 😍♥️😍
