An Ex For Christmas is a charming Love Unexpectedly friends-to-lovers rom-com from Lauren Layne, the New York Times bestselling author of the I Do, I Don't series. For fans of Jill Shalvis, Julie James and Carly Phillips.
She's making a list - and checking it twice. But is there a nice guy among all her naughty exes?
When a psychic tells fiesty, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she's already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an 'Ex List' and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they're meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she's never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.
Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly's list break her heart, and he's not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark's always been there for her, but the timing's never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.
