    Normally I can read 160 some odd pages in just a few hours but this book just kept dragging on.  I thought it was so slow and really even though you can relate to Georgia's "plainness" you never really understand what she looks like because it isnt written.  Zander never makes any reference to her looks and the book I thought was boring. Ive read a few titles from this series and loved them but this book was a major let down.  Thank goodness I got it cheap or I wouldve been upset.

    I found How to Get Over Your Ex a refreshing little jaunt into romantic comedy that you can read in one sitting.

    I loved the main character, Georgia— she’s smart, driven, knows who she is, and doesn’t really want to become someone else. She loves planets and gardening and is interested in belly dancing and traveling to Turkey, not undergoing a makover and traveling to Ibiza. She’s comfortable with herself and though she does have insecurities—which is how she comes to make a giant, humiliating mistake in proposing to her boyfriend live on the radio only to have him turn her down—she’s wants to become more herself rather than become someone else. This was so refreshing to read because I was expecting her to be the typical, inane, needs-to-be-saved-by-a-man kind of woman that is so common in rom-coms today. (In case you’re wondering, I tend to loathe rom-coms because the women are always dumb. I just want to smack them.)

    Though I really loved Georgia, I didn’t ever warm up to her new love interest, Zander, the hard-hitting radio exec who basically forces Georgia into being his radio experiment for a year because she signed a contract whens he agreed to propose on the air. Even though Zander was a little typical in that he was All of the Things: smart, handsome, successful, fit, a little emotionally bruised. But he hated his life and kept everyone so far from him emotionally that I just wasn’t sold on him, even when he did finally let his guard down.

    However, something that I did enjoy about this book was the pacing. It’s a slow burn, but Zander and Georgia’s relationship also has some hiccoughs, which made their story feel much more true to life than many other romances can be. There were sparks and flirty glances, sure, but there were also fights and misunderstandings and risks taken (by Georgia!) and falling outs that really informed their relationship and helped the reader root for them.

    Overall, How to Get Over Your Ex is a fun, quick read that is grounded in reality in the best possible ways.
