[Review] MY ALMOST EX (The Greene Family, #2) by Piper Rayne

Source: Received an egalley to participate in the blog tour,
and also pre-ordered a Kindle version.
Release Date: April 6, 2021


In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.


This is going to be one super ecstatic review because this book was WONDERFUL! I started MY ALMOST EX, and didn't want to put it down. Adam and Lucy were such fantastic characters, and I loved getting snippets of their past, while also seeing them come together in the present! There were definitely some emotional moments in this one, but it was also funny, sweet, and had some steamy moments, too--I loved every single moment of it!
It's no secret that I love Piper and Rayne, and that I love their Baileys series...but The Greene Family series has only just started and I have to say that their books are off to a truly phenomenal start! I already love the entire family and all of the family moments with Grandma Ethel and the entire Greene clan. I love the Bailey family and Grandma Dori cameos, and so far I have loved the couples in these books, too. Adam and Lucy were high school sweethearts, then Lucy left with barely an explanation only to come back into Adam's life with no recollection of ever leaving him...that's right! Piper and Rayne went there! They gave Lucy amnesia! I have to admit that I've only come across the amnesia trope in one other book and it was handled so differently and was super angsty...but I liked that here it instead quite literally gave Adam and Lucy a second chance with their romance...and they were so in love...gah, it was just so good and I just loved it so much! And that's all I'll say because you definitely need to read this one for yourself. ;)
Overall, I thought that MY ALMOST EX was amazing! Second chance romances aren't typically a go-to trope for me because sometimes they feel a bit rushed, but this one was flushed out perfectly! I felt like I was able to both enjoy Adam and Lucy's past along with their present, and it was so wonderful! I recommend this to contemporary romance fans who love small town romances, unexpected romance tropes (that would be the amnesia lol), sexy forest rangers, and just fun, steamy, romances in general! At this point, I've read a lot of Piper and Rayne's books, and MY ALMOST EX has been one of my top favourites so far. It left me feeling so happy, and I truly just loved getting to experience Adam and Lucy's story!
