Book Review | More Than Exes by Elizabeth Briggs

22265552Keyboardist 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.

Don't Judge the Book by It's Cover:
Kyle Cross might look like a bad-boy with his tats and piercings, but he was really a good guy who always get to solve the band's problem and never gets the girl. It was always his brother, but I'm glad he never resents him. They have been through a lot since they were young, and have each other's back - and nothing changed. 

I fell in love with their band reading More Than Music, this story happened before they entered the show - it was great to see Jared and Maddie pre-More Than Music. The band joined a contest, against one school, but they encountered a problem when their bassist didn't show up. He must find her, with the help of the person he least likely expect to meet again: Alexis.

She left him when she decided to go to Princeton and he decided to stay. But now, she's back- and he wanted him back again. It was a mistake letting him go back then, but first she needed to make him believe that she was in for the long haul. 

But he needs to shed off a little good, and put on a little bad if he wants to get the girl and the first place. He was willing to finally give his past a chance, until old issues resurfaces and he might get his heart broken again.

It was SHORT, FAST-PACED, SEXY & SWEET. It reminds readers never to judge someone by their appearance because there is always more to a person than what meets the eye. I enjoyed reading this book and finished it with one sitting. I am not really a music fanatic, but I love the way Elizabeth described the scene, it was like hearing the noise, being in the midst of the crowd and cheering on your favorite band!
