When the lovely Rachel Gilbey asked me if I’d like to review this book because she thought I’d love it, I couldn’t refuse. Rachel knows what books I love and I thought her recommendation was a perfect one for me.
My Girlfriend’s Perfect Ex-Boyfriend by Peter Jones is definitely the laugh out loud rom-com that it promises to be on the cover.
Whilst I thought that Ade was a bit wet at times, and his girlfriend Paige needed a slap occasionally, I thought that both these things actually added to the story and made it what it was.
I think most of us probably find us in a position where we’ve questioned a partner’s ex and wondered about them. To be put in the position that Ade was in, would be particularly frustrating and very annoying and he coped with it really well.
It was an enjoyable read, very funny in parts and extremely entertaining. A great fun read! Highly recommended.
My Girlfriend’s Perfect Ex-Boyfriend by Peter Jones
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Publication Date: 10th October 2017
Adrian Turner, Mountaineer, Secret Agent, Fireman… Ade would dearly like to be any of these things, though he’d trade them all to win the heart of feisty Public Relations Executive, Paige.
Instead, he’s a disillusioned school teacher, on suspension, after an unfortunate incident with a heavy piece of computer equipment. And somebody’s foot. And Paige? Despite being his girlfriend for the past eighteen months, she still seems to have one foot out of the door and hasn’t quite committed to leaving a toothbrush in the bathroom.
Of course, it doesn’t help that she’s working with her ex-boyfriend, Sebastian. A man who in almost every way imaginable is better, taller, wealthier, hairier, and infinitely more successful than Ade.
Is Paige still in love with Sebastian? Why then did she suggest they get away for a few days? Some place romantic…
But when Adrian finds himself in Slovenia – with Sebastian in the room down the hall – he realises there’s serious possibility that he’s in danger of losing his job, his mind, and the woman he loves…
From best-selling author Peter Jones comes this hilarious romp about love, and the things people do to keep it from getting away.

Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.
Nowadays, Peter spends his days writing, or talking about writing. He’s written three novels; a Rom-Com (Romantic Comedy), A Crim-Com (Crime Comedy), and a Rom-Com-Ding-Dong (a sort-of Romantic-ish Comedy, with attitude). He’s currently working on his fourth novel, which – if it’s a musical – he’ll no doubt describe as a Rom-Com-Sing-Song. (Spoiler: It isn’t).
He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, staying slim and dating. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy.
Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.
