The Plot (from Goodreads):

Romance-novel connoisseur Tara Chen has had her heart broken ten times by ten different men–all of whom dumped her because of her “stage-five clinger” tendencies. Nevertheless, Tara is determined to find The One. The only problem? Classic meet-cutes are dead thanks to modern dating apps. So Tara decides to revisit her exes in hopes of securing her very own trope-worthy second-chance romance.

Boston firefighter Trevor Metcalfe will be the first to rush into a burning building but the last to rush into a relationship. Love just isn’t his thing. When his new roommate Tara enlists him to help her reconnect with her exes, he reluctantly agrees. But Tara’s journey is leading him to discover his own new chapter.

The more time they spend together, the more Tara realizes Trevor seems to be the only one who appreciates her authentic, dramatic self. To claim their happily-ever-after, can Tara and Trevor read between the lines of their growing connection?

The Review: 

Thank you to PRH Audio for this gifted ALC.

Exes and O’s was a love letter to Bookstagrammers, and such an absolute joy to read. I loved Set On You and was so excited to read this continuation of the Influencers series. While I force myself to work out, I didn’t quite share Crystal’s passion. With Tara, though, I was fully with her for every messy book stack that got left out on her living room floor.

I loved the snippets of Tara’s vlogs in between chapters, and how her whole ex-boyfriend search was based on romance tropes. Any romance book lover will fully appreciate these scenes.

I loved Trevor, his backstory, and his patience with Tara. Tara got a little OTT at times with her insistence on completing the ex-boyfriend project, but Trevor was always there for her. I also LOVED Trevor’s niece!

Amy Lea has solidified her position as an auto-buy author for me. I’m looking forward to Mel’s book next!
