Book Review: HOW TO RUIN YOUR EX'S WEDDING by Denise Wells

Release Date: September 4, 2019
Cover Design: Opulent Designs


But when my ex-wife lands a starring role in the wedding of the year, it’s tempting to change things up a bit.
Who’s better than me to follow her around before and during the big day, capturing every picturesque moment, snapping every detail as they join together in wedlock? No one.
Not to mention, she still owes me for destroying my prized vintage camera during our divorce.
As the saying goes, revenge is a dish best served cold.

My Thoughts

HOW TO RUIN YOUR EX’S WEDDING by Denise Well is an enjoyable and often laugh-out-loud second chance romance. Pax and Tabatha are relatively even-keeled but when they cross paths it’s sheer destruction. They love each other; they hate each other. It really is as complicated and simple as that.  

For me, Pax was the star of the book. I’d describe him as a beta hero with some alpha tendencies. He’s comfortable talking about his feelings with his best friend, he is not beneath sabotaging his ex-wife’s upcoming wedding, and nor is he beneath acting a tad silly at times. He is also sincere and open to questioning his beliefs in order to grow.

I do need to confess that the book did not create a good first impression. The prologue was quite far-fetched, the main characters really were so horrible that I closed the book and left it for a few days. The characters that we meet in Chapter One, which takes place ten years after the prologue are much more interesting.

If you’re after a fun read that has a touch of soberness, this would tick the box. 

About the Author

Denise Wells has been reading since before she could talk. And to this day, escaping into a book is her go-to activity before anything else. She's the author of five romance novels and one YA novel to date. She likes to write about sassy women and semi-flawed alpha-esque men. Denise's female characters always have strong friendships, potty mouths, and like to drink--a lot. 

Denise is loyal to a fault, a bit too sarcastic, blindingly optimistic, and pretty freakin' happy with life overall. As a diehard fan of the band Journey, Denise would be a rock star in the band if she couldn't be a writer. Preferably during the Steve Perry years, when they were awesome. 

Home is in the Pacific Northwest where she lives with six special needs dogs, one cat (who's busy plotting the demise of the six dogs), and a husband (BW) who has the patience and tolerance of a saint. And, lest she forget, Denise also lives with too many to count characters inside her head, who will eventually have their stories told.
