Our Review for My Best Friend’s Ex by Hazel Kelly
This story was definitely different from any of read before. From the beginning it touched my heart. I am not going to lie and I never bring this up on any of my reviews, but when the book was presented I did read some reviews and they would’ve pushed me away but I decided to give it a shot.
Let me just say it was the best decision I ever made. Zoe and Logan belong together. Their story was hard and emotionally draining but the outcome surpassed all of it. Feelings they had for each other for years were ignored. Logan stayed away from her because of their situation with their family ….he ended up dating one of her best friends and that went south with their own issues- They were always connected due to their family lifestyle but they found their total connection when they both ended up at the same college. He was like a protective beast with her……. he knew he always had feelings for her but he didn’t want to act on them to betray his family.
Only…….. the heart wants what the heart wants and will make it happen- it was not easy and there were tears, secrecy… but in the end honesty prevailed.
Definitely a must read- and let me just reiterate everyone has different takes on stories so if you find yourself reading a review that would make you turn Away – sometimes your gut will say give it a shot—. GO WITH IT! I sure am happy I did with this one- a beautiful story!

Blurb for My Best Friend’s Ex by Hazel Kelly
I’ve always been good at sharing. You have to be when you grow up in a family like mine.
But I never wanted to share Logan.
From the moment I saw him, my skin prickled and my insides burned, as if I’d found something I hadn’t realized I was looking for.
Unfortunately, I had to keep that to myself since, like all the kids my parents brought home, he was considered family from the moment he took a seat at our table. So from that day on, I did everything I could to force a familial bond.
Piper didn’t have to, though. She noticed immediately how special he was, and it wasn’t long before she was caring for him in a way I couldn’t, a way I wasn’t ready for.
A way that made me insanely jealous.
Night after night, I’d watch her leave my house and sneak over to the annex above our garage to visit him, and I’d stare at the small, curtain-covered window until my eyes burned with tears.
I wanted to be happy for them. After all, Piper and I had been best friends since I was six, and she was so content with him… at least, in the beginning. But it was hard because their relationship taught me that I wasn’t as good at sharing as I thought. I just never cared about anything enough to want it all to myself before.
Not that I held it against them that they got together. I know better than anyone that you can’t help who you love. You can only help who knows about it.
And since he’ll always be off-limits, there’s no point in sharing my secret.
It doesn’t matter if my body screams for his touch whenever we cross paths.
It doesn’t matter that my heart swells to six times its normal size at the mere thought of that handsome loner’s shy smile.
It doesn’t matter if I think I could love him better than she did.
Because Logan Jones and I are never going to happen.
