Book Review #573 - More Than Exes (Chasing the Dream #0.5) by Elizabeth Briggs


My Rating: 2.5/5

Source: iBooks

Keyboardist Kyle Cross may look like a bad boy with his tattoos and piercings, but he’s really the good guy who’s always stuck fixing his band’s problems and never gets the girl. His band is competing in a college Battle of the Bands, but when their bassist doesn't show, Kyle must track her down with the help of the person he least expects: his ex-girlfriend Alexis Monroe. 

Kyle hasn’t seen Alexis since she dumped him in high school, and she’s dropped her preppy image for fiery red hair and a bold new attitude to match. With only hours before his band goes on stage, Kyle has to be a little bad if he wants to win both the Battle and the girl he's never gotten over. But when their old problems resurface, the good guy might just get his heart broken all over again.

A stand-alone novella that launches the Chasing The Dream series - all about finding love on reality TV!

This is a short novella set before More than Music which I had never heard of let alone read. 

All the characters seemed really one dimensional and didn't develop at all. 

This story is based on one night, the night of a battle of the bands tournament. Kyle, the protagonist has a lot of issues to solve in order for his band to perform smoothly. His girlfriend who dumped him 3 years prior turns up suddenly with his enemies band. 

Jared (Kyle's brother) was the most annoying character. He was simply just a massive jerk although he was a really good and supportive brother to Kyle. 

Even though I am still relatively new to the New Adult genre, I would have to say that this would be my least favourite of the books I have read in that genre.
