Quickie Review: More Than Exes by Elizabeth Briggs
I was offered a copy of More Than Exes for review but I initially hesitated, I wasn't sure I had the time to fit in another review book, but I also thought this came after More Than Music, and was worried I would miss out on something as my memory is kinda hazy. When I looked into it more I realised it was set before More Than Music, but that it was also a short read, one that I could fit in easily between books, after this revelation I quickly got my copy of More than Exes.
More Than Exes follows Jarred, Kyle, and Villain Complex before we meet them in More Than Music. We get to see them as they enter the competition, but also deal with the past, and some current issues.
More Than Exes was a quick read and I really liked getting to see the band before more than music, and seeing what lead them to The Sound. The past that comes back to bite Kyle in the butt wasn't one I expected, and had actually forgotten about this character which made the progress of their 'relationship' even more eventful and surprising. Seeing Jared through his brothers eyes was an enlightening experience, and definitely explains a moment in More Than Music.
I liked getting to see familiar faces from More Than Music, it just added that little bit extra to blend these stories together. The covers for these books are also spectacularly amazing, and I really love how they are so similar, but different in their own way, and you can definitely tell they are part of a series.
My only issue is once I got into the story I wish it could have been longer, even though that completely counteracts my statement above.
