#Review #Spotlight Love, Exes, and Ohs by Violet Duke @InkSlingerPR

He may very well be the perfect ex...
Isaac McKnight has had enough loss in his life to know never to take anything for granted. So when the perfectly-imperfect-woman-for-him puts an end to their relationship out of the blue, it's Isaac that makes sure they remain friends. Now a year later, whether it's at his gym or her brewpub, or the dog park they visit every weekend--though neither of them own a dog--he and Xoey are steadily getting sucked deeper into buddy-zone galaxy, with its dangerous proximity to watch-me-settle-down-with-someone-else abyss. It's a reality he's resigned himself to. That is...until one drunken confession changes everything.
But she's looking for the perfect oh...
For Xoey Montenegro, history has taught her that sometimes, it's Prince Charming who vanishes without a trace. And fairytale love? Highly overrated. Heck, give her a real and perfect 'oh' over that fantasy any day. So as far as rock-solid tequila-fueled plans for her love life go, coming up with a match-finding formula based on the qualities of the men responsible for her three most epic ohs seems brilliant. Except for the fact that one-third of her genius little man-quation is all about her friend Isaac. Actually, more than a third if Xoey were being honest with herself--which she's not. Because full honesty would require thinking not just about how perfect Isaac really is, but also about how perfect the fourth epic oh she's kept buried deep in her past once was.
An easy enough thing to keep ignoring...until her past isn't past tense anymore.

Four stars for ex's and ohs
Have you ever started a book knowing its not your style but you get sucked in anyways and it turns out to be one amazing story? Well thats what exes and ohs was for me. I have a hard time connecting with third person narrative sometimes and there have only been a few books that I've been able to really get into, and this is one of them.
The witty banter, the way she was able to write with such emotion yet have humor is kind of a major skill. I was drawn in with the relatable characters and consumed by the emotions hidden deep within the story line.
Xoey and Issac were definitely one of my top book couples. They kind of reminded me of someone I know and adore so it made reading this story that much more entertaining. If you're hovering over that one click button wondering if you should take the chance on this book, do it. It'll be worth your while because it definitely let me get away from reality for just a minute and I loved it.
