Romero Jinks is a famous rock n’ roll star whose crooning voice and emotional words get to the heart of any woman from the age of six to a hundred. When he sees a beautiful actress playing the part of a roadie on the big screen, he knows he must see her and goes out of his way to meet her.

Shannon Leigh does not believe in the idea of sleeping around, for when she gives her body, it goes along with her heart. After Romero meets with the sexy singer, they begin an eleven-month relationship full of passion and with just as much pent-up anger.
Calling their relationship quits three months ago may have seemed like the best thing for them, but Shannon is still as broken-hearted now as she was then. Seeing Romero at her best friend’s wedding, having to walk down the aisle on his arm, and then dance with him puts a strain on her already fragile nerves. Alas, it seems the fates are against her when her plane is delayed so she takes a ride from Romero. Along the way, their drive is sabotaged by some crazy person in a VW van, and they are now stranded in the desert with their anger, resentment, and too much passion standing between them.

She Thinks Her Ex Is Sexy…starts off a little slow for me, building up but not enough to keep me happy. However, about a third of the way into the book, Ms. Rock got to the heart of the main characters’ problems, and I was delving into a much better storyline. To see into both sides of Romero and Shannon’s feelings about everything from their relationship, to work, and the way they were raised made me feel as if I were part of the story. Watching how Shannon comes to realize how much of her starlet mother influenced her views of the world was wonderful; seeing Romero struggle with his negative feelings about arguments and his own eye-opening thought process was just as great. The novel was full of passionate scenes, stunning revelations, and tears, which was a very nice way to tell the story of these two great characters.
