"How to Take the Ex Out of Ex-Boyfriend" by Janette Rallison

My Book Summary : Giovanna (Gi) has a handsome, sweet, and popular boyfriend named Jesse. The only problem she has with him is his friends, they are arrogant, mean, and most of them snub her whenever Jesse is away. So, when Dante, Gi's twin brother and a friend of Jesse's too, decides to run as student council president against another one of Jesse's friends named Wilson, who just happens to be the Mayor's son, things in their relationship go from great to nonexistent. Especially after Gi learns that Jesse had agreed to run as Wilson's campaign manager not long after she requested he be the campaign manager for her brother, so her emotions get out of hand for her and she tells Jesse that they're through.

So now she has to deal with:
  • the politics at a high school where everyone believes she is a criminal
  • seeing a girl she hates hang all over Jesse
  • trying to date other guys (at first for herself and then to make Jesse jealous)
and now .... trying to win Jesse back since after everything she did and even though they are helping other opponents she just can't help but miss him. But will he ever take her back?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. It's a cute story. Definitely had some unexpected twists that made me want to find out what would happen next, but it wasn't as good as I would have liked it to be. However, I did like the main characters .... especially with all of the antics that Gi got herself into without even trying. =0)

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Just One Wish

Book Teaser(s) :
"It's the biology break-in, isn't it? Nobody wants to take a criminal to prom."
Daphne let out a sigh and twirled the end of her straw in her mouth as though unsure whether to tell me a secret or not. "Actually, Jesse told all the guys he knows that they'd better not ask you out."
"What?" I looked around the lunchroom, searching for Jesse so I could, I don't know, pelt him with carrot sticks or something. "He can't do that. We're not dating anymore."
Daphne nodded sympathetically. "I know. It totally violates the rules of breakup procedure, but obviously he's not over you yet."
Raine bit into a chip. "Or he wants to make you suffer." ~ within Chapter 5
