Blog Tour: Exes and O's by Amy Lea


A romance novel-obsessed social media influencer revisits her exes on her hunt for true love in this romantic comedy from the author of Set On You.

Romance book 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?

Christy's Review: 

This book was so much fun! Exes and O’s is Amy Lea’s second book and I loved it even more than the first. 

Tara Chen is a book lover and hopeless romantic. She’s looking for the one and not having the best luck. After being inspired by her grandmother’s second chance romance (plus, it’s her favorite romance troupe) she decides to find some of her exes and see if maybe one of the ones who got away were the actual ‘one’. And she enlists the help of her roommate, Trevor. 

Trevor Metcalfe is a firefighter and opposite of Tara in a lot of ways. He’s much more quiet and stand-offish, but Tara slowly wears him down and gets him to open up to her. These two go from roommates to friends to more than friends and I couldn’t have loved these two together more. 

I’ll be honest, it was a bit predictable but I absolutely didn’t mind one bit. I had a blast reading it and I adored both Tara and Trevor. Tara is a lot, but Trevor loved that about her. I love characters that are ‘too much’ for most people but find that they can 100% be themselves with their person. It makes me so happy.

Charming, a good time, sweet and delightful- this book left me with a huge smile on my face. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author and I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good romance.
