My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just Exes by Charity Ferrell is a fun book. From the beginning I was invested And I knew it was going to be a good one. This is the second book I have read by Charity Ferrell. I really enjoy her writing style and was not disappointed! I like that each character had some growth they had to go through. Lots of drama but low on angst! I love that Lauren is a wise ass. That’s my favorite!! Anyway I enjoyed it and look forward to others by Charity. 4 star rating.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just Exes by Charity Ferrell is part of the Blue Beech Series but can absolutely be read as a standalone.

Lauren and Gage haven’t seen each other in years, ever since Lauren broke Gabe’s heart without telling him why. Gage’s life from there has only gotten much more difficult. Once he’s back in Blue Beech, he doesn’t tell anyone what he’s been through. Lauren and Gage’s first encounter was not pleasant but since then it seems like she keeps running into him every time she turns around. Gage has promised to hate Lauren for the rest of his life but now that they spend so much time around each other, will he be able to keep that promise? Secrets come out finally and it’s up to Gage and Lauren to see if they can really give it another shot or not? Will they still be just exes?

I absolutely loved this book. Lauren is quick witted even when she’s hurting. She’s loyal which was so evident when reading the book. Gage couldn’t help his protective instincts toward Lauren which really showed how much he still loved her even when he was saying otherwise. When everything was revealed, I was shocked. I didn’t see those twists coming. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time though. This book has everything!

Just Exes is the story of Lauren and Gage. When Lauren’s apartment burns down, Gage arrests her for starting the fire. This is how they run into each other, years after Lauren broke Gage’s heart. Even thought its been years since they’ve seen each other, some feelings just never go away. It’s an “I hate that the I love you” situation. I went into this thinking it was going to be another exes get back together book, but I wasn’t pleasantly surprised to see that it was so much more than that. They each have their own things they are keeping from each other, but it doesn’t keep the two apart. .This is the first I’ve read of Charity Ferrell, and I was not disappointed.

Just Exes is the second book I’ve read by this author, having really enjoyed Just One Night I was looking forward to Just Exes and seeing what Lauren’s own story had to offer.
I don’t read many second chance romance stories as I tend to find the obstacles that keep these couples apart redundant and frustrating. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this book. Just Exes was so much more than a second chance romance and I am glad I cast aside my preconceived notions. I found myself cheering Lauren on from beginning to end and the obstacles that she and Gage faced were nothing less than exciting.
I have to admit I really enjoyed the role Kyle played in the story, he was an excellent friend and his relationship dynamic with Lauren was well played out.
Just Exes has a little bit of everything for the avid reader, danger, drama, passion, romance, the list goes on. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from Charity Ferrell.

I love Charity Ferrell’s books and this one didn’t disappoint. This particular story had me hooked from the prologue! This is one of those stories that stay with you long after reading it.

This story will definitely take you on one emotional rollercoaster. We meet Gage and Lauren. Both were childhood sweethearts until Lauren walked away right before college. Gage ran off but is now home, bitter, and a cop. He came back home to forget and to heal. Unfortunately, or fortunately, he runs into Lauren (which he had to arrest). Both hate one another and show it but the love and the chemistry is still there. As the time goes on the feelings of attraction grow but both are holding secrets and these secrets can make or break their relationship!

This was a wonderful second chance romance where it does prove that there is a fine line between love and hate!

“Just Exes” is the third book in the Blue Beech series by Charity Ferrell but can be read as a standalone as I did. This wonderful story of love, loss and forgiveness is about Gage and Lauren, High school sweethearts who didn’t last. Gage has tried to move on with his life and pursued his dream of becoming a cop while Lauren followed her dream of being an ER nurse. Ten years of space stands between them when they see each other again after Lauren’s apartment complex catches fire and Gage in on the scene, to arrest Lauren. This story is so much more than your normal boy meets girl or boy and girl hate each other(but do they really?) type books I have read in the past. This story is deeper and more emotional than one would think from its description. I couldn’t stop reading this book. I got completely pulled into the story and loved it! The depth of the story and characters was so beautifully written. I can’t say a whole lot more about that because I don’t want to ruin any of it with details here, but do yourself a favor and lose a few hours to this book. As I mentioned, I didn’t read the previous stories in the series about Lauren’s brothers, but after reading this book I think I have to! I love the family that Charity Ferrell has written about and can’t wait to find out more! Five obvious stars to “Just Exes” by Charity Ferrell!

Just Exes by Charity Ferrell

I loved this story!!! This book gave me all the feels I look for in a good story. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, and I even swooned. Lauren and Gage have so much history, love, and hurt. Can they find their way back to each other? Will Gage trust that Lauren won’t hurt him again. Is he able to tell Lauren the secret he’s keeping from everyone except his dad. Will Lauren tell him the real reason she broke up with him all those years ago.I enjoyed the banter between these two and the sexual tension is off the charts!!! I couldn’t put this book down once I started reading. I became so invested in this story and the characters, that it felt like I was experiencing their lives right along with them. I can’t say enough good things about the feelings I experienced while reading this book. I highly recommend reading this awesome story!!!

A LEGIT PAGE TURNER!! Just Exes is a book written by Charity Ferrell and it is a great story! Lauren and Gage were high school sweethearts until it was time for college. Gage planned on following Lauren so that she could pursue her dreams to become a nurse. Lauren had other plans and decided that she wanted to go alone. So for years Gage has had built all of this hate toward her and then he moves back home to be with his dad. The first encounter these two had after all these years apart…Gage arrests Lauren. Then of course, all the feelings that they had for each other years ago start to come forward and things start to develop again. However, during the time apart Gage has become a different person. A person that Lauren doesn’t recognize anymore. Gage doesn’t want to let her in because he doesn’t want to taint her with all of his demons. But there is no stopping Lauren and when she wants something…she gets it. This is definitely a HEA and it has some seriously sexy scenes. Why yes, they were definitely hot! They were also very loving and very well written. I loved the characters in this book, both main and secondary. They were all likeable characters and I could relate to them as well. There were some tear jerker scenes that you really did need the tissues for. This book was so believable and it felt so real. I truly thought I was a part of the story line. I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

Just Exes is not my first time reading Charity Ferrell’s work. She never fails to draw me into her novels and make me think about them long after I finish them. This one was no different, but I would have to say it made me a bit more frustrated than her others. I think I just had a more difficult time relating to the characters. It did not affect the book though, it was still fantastic and I would still recommend it along with her others.

In this one we get the story of Lauren and Gage. These two have a bit of a second chance romance thing going on. It is NOT an easy road to this second chance though, and I promise you that you will not see the type of heartbreak that will come for these two. I was shouting so many times at my kindle. These two just couldn’t communicate to save their souls. But anyways, it made for a great novel in the end ultimately and I was fascinated that they ended up where they did. I look forward to seeing where Charity takes us next.

Just Exes was a very well-done second chance romance. It definitely gave me the feels. I experienced their heartbreak with them, felt the push and pull, the hesitation and love. Added to it are a couple of secrets that made me cry a bit. Even though I had started to figure some things out, it was still surprising and sad when everything was revealed. I really got into Lauren and Gage’s story. They deserved their happy ever after. In fact, it made me more interested to read Lauren’s brothers’ stories.
