Quick Review: My Great Ex-Scape by Portia MacIntosh

Overall, I thought this was a cute book. Nice and fluffy for when you need something light to cozy up with. I liked the characters: Rosie was a super-relatable heroine (all food, no exercise, shitty job, no direction at 31, lonely — hey girl!); Eli was the gay best friend whose life did not revolve around Rosie, and he got to be selfish as well as supportive; the main love interest (I won’t say who it is) is a nice, caring person rather than a big, hot jerk. Rosie’s journey was comical — there were even a couple laugh-out-loud moments. I just wish that the writing style had been more show and less tell. Also, there were so, so many comma splices. The book could’ve used quite a bit more editing, but the concept was unique, and the book was enjoyable.
