    Kindle freebie romance time again! And hey, it's still a freebie as of the date I'm writing this review. This is a cute, bubbly contemporary romance about Presley Benson, a cute, bubbly high school drama teacher who unexpectedly (she thought a proposal was imminent) gets dumped, right at the start of the book, by the guy she's head over heels in love with, Jackson Montgomery. He basically tells her he can't mess around any more, and has to get serious about life for career reasons--Jackson's just been promoted to vice principal of their high school, and is in line for the principal's job when he retires. And Presley, apparently, is not part of his Get Serious About Life plan.Presley spends a lot of time weeping, and navel-gazing about their relationship, thinking (and journal-writing) about how wonderful Jackson was (really!), how no man can compete with him, but how men suck and can't be trusted, and so on. Her best friend offers up a "Get Over Your Ex in 90 Days" plan that she read in a magazine, so Presley works to implement it, deleting his messages and blocking him on her phone and Facebook, deleting her "PB & J" (hah!) photo album from Facebook, etc. The problem is, they're both at the same school and it's tough to avoid Jackson and move on. But Presley is determined to do it! ... even if Jackson keeps sending her longing looks and interfering in her life.I had already bought face masks, candles, and dark chocolate. It was going to be a good weekend celebrating my single status. I should have started dating myself a long time ago.**The next part is sort of spoilerish but the blurb gives at least part of it away, so I'm going to press on, but quit reading here if you're spoiler-averse.** Things get upended about halfway through the book when Jackson VERY suddenly decides, damn it all, he wants Presley back. Presley, to her credit, says forget it--you broke us too badly, and I can't trust you any longer. So then we shift gears into Jennifer Peel's patented "guy has done her wrong and now he's gotta grovel" mode, which, to give Peel credit, she pulls off pretty well. Minus points for having the plot turn on a particular contrivance, a deep secret Jackson feels like he needs to keep, which was (a) not hard to guess for a Big Bad Secret, and (b) pretty weak justification for Jackson to continue not to share with the woman he wants to get back, when that's the main thing blocking them getting back together. Seriously, there comes a point when a secret just should not be kept from a particular person(view spoiler)[, despite any prior promises to the contrary. You man up and give the person you promised a heads up that you have to share their secret with someone, and then you just do it (hide spoiler)]. So it felt too contrived for me to totally buy in.The copyediting/proofing isn't too terrible but you do run into occasional typical self-published book mistakes like these:"I wasn’t going to let Mr. Montgomery phase me." (I swear, phase/faze trips up more authors!!)"we’re a packaged deal" (should just be "package deal," though I admit there's a certain appeal to this one)"Yes, and your welcome." "... my sister Michelle, who was the closest to me in age said." (the grammar and punctuation gods are crying)Anyway, this book is not great literature but it's fun and cathartic, if your particular brand of brain candy happens to be clean contemporary romances.

    4.5This was a fun addition to the Jennifer Peel collection. I knew from the title and cover that I had to read this one, ASAP. Like always, as soon as I picked it up I was immediately sucked in and glued to the pages. I stayed up way past my bedtime and had to force myself to put it down so I could get some sleep. To say Presley Benson is heartbroken when her perfect boyfriend unexpectedly dumps her would be an understatement. She was positive he was "the one" and had already mapped out their future together. To top it all off, he just received a promotion to Vice Principle at the high school she teaches at and will be stuck seeing him everyday. How do you get over your ex, when you're faced with seeing them so often? That's where Presley's BFF steps in and helps come up with a 90 day plan to getting over your ex. Presley is determined to see it through and to mend her broken heart. I love the fact that we got to see Presley's journal entries, added a fun element to the story. Like I said, I had a hard time putting this one down. That always happens when I read a Peel book, she writes very captivating heroines and fun plots that keep you anxious to see how everything will turn out. I loved Presley's strength and determination. You can't help but root for her to stay strong and to find happiness again. I admit, I was kinda hoping some guy would come and sweep her off her feet, but that pesky ex, Jackson Montgomery, has a way of staying in the picture and makes it hard for Presley to move on. While it seems he regrets his choice pretty early on, he does stick to his decision for awhile causing both of them a lot of pain. I did think the "reasons" were a little...weak. I get where he was coming from, but I really really wanted him to be the one to tell Presley what was going on and to take a stand. (view spoiler)[I also thought their reconciliation was a little quick. I liked the idea of her leaving town and maybe him realizing he had pushed her away and held things back for too long and it would have been great if he told his dad off and realized how badly he had hurt Presley. His reasons for keeping secrets were not worth hurting Presley, IMO. I needed a bit more groveling I suppose.(hide spoiler)]I really enjoyed this one. Filled with lots of fun characters, a great setting and a fun plot. You wont want to put this one down.

    This has a fantastic setup and a great beginning, but it crashes hard in the later chapters.I really, really loved Presley. And that didn't change, so that's to the book's benefit. She's witty and strong and kind and loving and I love her inner dialogue (even if the "writing to Bingley" journal thing got old fast). I particularly liked how firm she was about Jackson's idiocy. He kept thinking they'd be friends and she kept him focused on why his choices precluded that outcome. You could see that while she still loved and yearned for him, she was also clear on why he didn't deserve her and she never faltered with that.Jackson, on the other hand, was mostly an enigma. It's easy to suspect from the start that something more than the surface is going on. Which is good because you know from the romance structure and the cover copy that they need to end up together so he can't be as callous as he comes off up front. That also means that those hidden things need to add up to something big to motivate such drastic behavior. And really, that part actually works if Peel hadn't fumbled badly.What doesn't work, and what dragged this down a star and a half, is all very spoilery, but since it ruined the last third of the book, you might want to go there even if you're spoiler-averse. (view spoiler)[Once Jackson decides that he wants to be with Presley after all and he gives up all pretense otherwise, it was time for him to spill the beans. That he kept squirrelling around broke all confidence I had that he'd learned his lesson (i.e. that you do not keep important matters from the woman you love and want to share your life with). Once it was obvious he was still keeping things from her, the "secret" went from being kinda important to absolutely vital because it had to be something so very important that he would break the team founded on love and promises of a life lived together—it had to be important enough to potentially break her trust and thus risk losing her over. And I'm sorry, but keeping it secret because his Daddy "made him promise because Daddy is embarrassed" was a repeat of the exact problem Jackson supposedly got over already. (hide spoiler)]This was important enough that it broke Jackson for me. Peel either needed to shorten the expectations to fit the story she actually had or come up with some other obstacle for them to overcome. The one she chose instead broke the entire structure for me and collapsed all my prior goodwill, bringing this from a potential round-to-five stars to a grudging three. Worse, it took this from outstanding to merely common. I really wish the promise of the beginning had panned out.

    Oh my goodness. This book! How does Jennifer Peel do it? I mean, SERIOUSLY?! Every. Single. Time. I pick up a new book by Jennifer and I'm in love all over again. It never fails. I'm really in love with this one though. How to Get Over Your Ex in Ninety Days is deliciously amusing and it made me happy!Presley got dumped by her perfect boyfriend. It came out of nowhere and she can hardly believe it. Her best friend helps to formulate a plan for recovery and in 90 days she will be over Jackson. We get a look into Presley's mind and her heart through journal entries to Mr. Bingley which is utterly hilarious to me because man, she really lets Bingley have it when it comes to Jane. As a solid Pride and Prejudice fan, this was so funny. Then we switch back to Presley going through her days and interactions with Jackson. Oh gee, just thinking of some of the scenes makes me smile right now. Can I just say that the word "meow" has never been so amusing to me? This book had me giggling and smiling pretty much the whole way though it. I was completely entertained and I LOVE when that happens. I want to go back and read this book right now. There were some more serious moments too, but overall this book had a lightness to it that made it so enjoyable. Jennifer Peel has a way of writing characters that you feel like you know personally. This book should be a movie. It played out that perfectly in my head.Content: Clean- I was given a copy of this book for free. I was under no obligation to give a postitive review and all opinions expressed are my own.

    Talk about being pulled in different directions! Presley is head-over-heels in love with Jackson, but he blindsides her when she is unceremoniously dumped. It's brutal, and she takes it hard. The first person perspective lends itself well to all the angst that ensues. Fortunately, the witty humor keeps it from being depressing, and the plan gives Presley a goal to stick to as she struggles with the aftermath of a once-in-a-lifetime relationship. Her close girlfriend lends support as well as her teaching mentor at the school and Jackson's grandmother. Jackson initially comes off as a real jerk, but of course we learn throughout the book how great their romance was with some flashbacks and reminiscing. Like a guy, Jackson wants to have his cake and eat it too when he tries to stay friends with Presley... which makes getting over him even harder! Throw in a couple of handsome guys to get Jackson jealous and she has her hands full. Jackson grew on me when it became apparent that he realized he made a massive mistake and starts sincerely trying to fix things. I loved that Presley sure gave him a run for his money! There's more than meets the eye with Jackson and the issues he's dealing with though, and I appreciated that Presley's compassion prevented her from becoming truly bitter and unforgiving in the end. Lots of great romantic tension and an ending to make all the drama worth it ;)(I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

    Presley is so in love with Jackson and thinks he's about to propose when he blindsides her by breaking up with her to concentrate on getting his Doctorate. He says he can have any "distractions" and "we can still be friends, right?"!! Is he kidding me? To make matters worse he's been promoted to Assistant Principal at the school where she's the drama teacher. Can you saw AWKWARD?! Presley sobs to her best friend, Capri, who just happened to find an article online "How to get over your ex in ninety days." So Presley decides that's what she's going to do. We read all about how her 90 plan is going by reading her journal entries--Dear Mr. Bingley--where she compares him and Jane to whats going with her and Jackson. I loved her journal entries, they were so funny and I liked the flashbacks so we got to see how she and Jackson got together and all the great things he did for her. He really was a great boyfriend until he let his father get into his head. Good thing we find out he's not such a jerk after all, but I did want to give him a piece of my mind a few times.I'm glad Presley stood her ground but wasn't too proud to forgive him when she found out about his dad. I'd love to have a friend like her.I loved Jackson's feisty, southern grandma, Miss Liliana. She sounds someone you'd want in your corner and was 100% behind Presley. Being born and raised in the south I could easily picture her. I'm glad these two characters finally came to their senses, because I don't think I could've taken anymore. Although I was 100% behind Presley's decision not to take him back (she made him really work for it), Jackson was making me swoon just reading about him. I loved their nickname PB&J--how cute is that?I don't know how Jennifer Peel does it--angsty (I think I made that word up) storylines, swoony guys, funny dialogue, and great characters.

    PB & JPresley Benson and Jackson Montgomery have spent the past nine months falling in love. All of a sudden he breaks up with her, calling her a distraction, and saying that he was just messing around.With the help of her best friend, Presley decides to follow the advice from an online article about how to get over her ex. It would be a whole lot easier, if she didn't have to see him nearly every day. He just got promoted to vice principal at the school where they both taught, and he keeps popping up everywhere! How can she get over him when he won't give her the chance!How is it that every new Jennifer Peel book becomes my new favorite book? I loved Jackson and Presley (PB and J). They were a great example of fighting for, and choosing love. I loved watching Presley's progress or lack thereof in getting over Jackson. She was fierce, and didn't give in immediately. I also loved all of their sly friends rooting for them, from Coach to Miss Liliana. Besides some smoldering moments, my favorite part was Presley's journal entries. She writes her entries as letters to Mr. Bingley from Pride and Prejudice, another man who broke the heart of the woman he loved. Her letters were thought provoking, and downright hilarious. I only wish that Mr. Bingley himself was privy to them!I had to avoid looking at my Kindle app a few times because I knew I didn't have the time, and would not be able to resist this book. It pulled me in, past sleep deprivation, and made me glad that it did so.If you enjoy romantic comedies, and characters who worm their way right into your heart and mind, and stay there, this is the book for you!Content: clean (some kissing, mild language)

    Presley Benson and Jackson Montgomery were meant to be together forever. They even had a "ship name" - PB & J. Presley was sure that Jackson Montgomery was “The One” – until he broke up with her. Now Presley and her best friend Capri, have a ninety day plan for her to completely get over Jackson! Ninety days from now Jackson was going to be a distant memory and a blip on her radar.Unfortunately, she already signed the contract to teach drama at the high school for another year so she wasn’t able to completely stay away from him. And he’s the new Vice Principal at the school so he’s her boss and she can’t avoid him. Plus everyone (except for a few catty teachers who are happy about the breakup) is working hard to get them back together again, especially his grandma.We are privy to her (almost) daily diary entries; she writes to “Mr. Bingley” in her journal and I loved all the Pride and Prejudice references! Another winner by Jennifer Peel!!!Content : Clean - some mild innuendo and mild swearing

    3.5 StarsHOW TO GET OVER YOUR EX IN NINETY DAYS was a cute, humorous, and fun romance. It's an interesting twist on the boy-trying-to-get-his-girl-back after he stupidly broke up with her trope. Readers of chick-lit, sweet rom-coms, and sweet romance may enjoy this one.I loved the humor that started this story off. Or, maybe sarcasm is a better word for it. The story jumps right in to Presley's bliss over her boyfriend, which quickly turns to heartbreak. Her best friend then picks up the pieces with a challenge for Presley to stick to a plan she found online for getting over one's ex. It's rather hilarious and sweet. I loved the friendship quite a lot. Then there other fabulous moments that are laugh-out-loud hilarious that I adored. There was also some serious chemistry between Jackson and Presley.I did have some issues with loving Jackson. He's great in that all-American way, don't get me wrong there... I just didn't like that he dumped her in the first place and then gives in to other pressures when he shouldn't have. He came across as unworthy and I didn't feel like he completely redeemed himself. I guess some of that also was that I thought he was going to have this really great reason for it all and he just didn't. I also didn't get the whole secrecy thing and why he wouldn't tell Presley (you'd have to read it to know what I mean). It wasn't worth it to break her heart if she was the future he was hoping for.In the end, was it what I wished for? Yes and no. After loving so many of this author's books, I have high expectations. This one was enjoyable, but I also wanted to love it more.Content: Some adult subject matter and humor, but clean.Source: PurchasedThis review originally appeared on Wishful Endings.

    A Fantastic Story!!This amazing author has done it again! I loved this story, so much that I may have stayed up WAY too late to read it. The protagonist, Presley, is witty, relatable, and full of spunk. I loved reading her thoughts and the clever way she wrote in her journal. Let's not also forget Jackson- wow were there a lot of swoon-worthy moments!!! I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading it again!

    I was super excited about this book and I was not disappointed. I loved PB and thought she was tough, sweet and talented. I didn't love Jackson however like I thought I would. I didn't like how he broke up with her and then I really didn't like how he said that he was going to win her back and then pretty much dropped off. I am not a horrible person. I understand his Dad was sick, I just didn't like how he handled most of it. He however was a great guy, just kind of acted like an idiot...for a while...Over-all, it was cute and I am happy I read it!

    Because I love this author and have thoroughly enjoyed her other works, as well as her overall writing style, I'm giving this one a gift of three stars even though I have some serious problems with the story. The concept for the story is a great one and I jumped in enthusiastically. The break-up was so well done that I had a hard time not tearing up! Presley's pain and devastation was palpable and it wasn't long until I was cheering her 90 day plan on whole-heartedly. The story started falling apart when Jackson decided to change his mind and wanted her back. He was all syrupy sweet and acted the perfect man role but it felt schmoozy rather than real. Why? Mainly because he said all the right things but never actually DID the right things. He promised her he had changed but didn't trust her with his secrets and kept her at arms length - all while whining about how sorry he was. HUH?? Makes NO sense! He's not doing ANYTHING to SHOW he's changed! Even then the plot could have been salvaged if she had followed through with her plans to go home (requiring him to actually sacrifice something to come get her - showing she really did mean something to him) or he had come to his senses and told her what was really going on (showing that he trusted her enough to keep his secrets and love her enough to let her help.) Not doing so and having his grandma save the day ruined every possibility of redemption for him as a worthy leading man and left the "happy" ending very unsatisfying.

    I really need to keep this Authors books towards the top of my list because I love every single one of them. This one brought back a lot of memories for me of when my hubby and I broke up before we were engaged and then married. I loved the characters and the humor you can't help but fall in love with it all. We have all had difficult times in our relationship and this book nails all the emotions you go through perfectly. Presley reminds me a l lot of me. I have always been spunky and love to speak my mind ;) All anyone wants in this world is a happy ending you'll have to read it to see if they get theirs. You should plan to read everything from this Author because her stuff is amazing!

    Presley thinks she has her life all figured out and then is dumped by her longtime boyfriend. She finds a list of what to do to get over your ex and does her best to execute that list. The trouble is that one of the things on the list is to avoid him and she can't do that since she's a drama teacher at the high school her ex just became the principal at.Clean and fun, with just a pinch of revengeful and spite to add some spice and drama.

    This is cute. A simple conversation could have solved so much angst. Presley is funny. She and Jackson work at the same high school, which makes it tough as she's trying to distance herself after he breaks up with her. And she's reliving every wonderful moment they had the previous year as different events come around.

    I devoured this cute, witty romance. Presley and Jackson are the perfect couple and she believes they are only days away from a proposal of marriage. So when Jackson blindsides her with a breakup instead, she is crushed and doesn’t know how she’ll ever recover. Her friend has her read an online article about how to get over your ex in 3 months, and Presley begins her journey to get over the love of her life. Sweet surprises and funny situations keep popping up that made me laugh and cry, and want to hug someone. Peel’s books always reach me on an emotional level and never disappoint. This lived up to her high standard. Loved it.

    This was my 2nd book to read from Ms. Peel and this has also been on my TBR list for a long time. So it was not a surprise when I devoured Presley and Jackson's story in just a matter of 2 days. Yes, this book is one of those that you will have to set aside life for a little while so you can get lost in their story. Presley Benson is a high school drama teacher that has found her prince charming. Everything was going great between her and her boyfriend Jackson Montgomery. However, a sudden break up left her feeling deflated. Her bff, Capri read an online article that gave a plan on how to get over your ex in 90 days. Presley, now knowing what else to do decided to follow the article. Unfortunately it was hard because a. they work together (he was the new VP of the school) and b. he realized that he had made a big mistake by breaking up with her. This book chronicled the 90 days after the break up. This book made me feel all the feels. Ms. Peel definitely knows how to hook a reader from the very first page. I loved how Presley, despite her really strong hurt emotions, did do her best to get over her ex. I love women characters that have spunk in them and would not let circumstances define them. But, there were times when I felt like she was being too prideful than anything. I mean, Jackson, once he realized that he wants to win her back, said some pretty sweet things. And I myself, don't think I would have been able to refuse such declarations of love if those things were said to me. Pride can be a very dangerous thing if we let that take over our lives. I also loved the homage to my favorite romantic author, Jane Austen, in the form of a diary written to Mr. Bingley. That was so cute. I love P&P but of course, I love it for Darcy and Elizabeth but reading a little bit more about Bingley and Jane made me want to pick up that book again and read it through these characters view point. My favorite part of the book was the concert scene. And the FB posting that Jackson wrote afterwards. Ms. Peel created a hero that was very eloquent with his words. I don't know of many guys that are that "good" in expressing their feelings in real life but I'm sure they exist, somewhere!

    I feel like I just conquered a tall mountain peak after reading this story! The journey was long and hard, but that ending was soooo worth it!Presley is madly in love with Jackson and thinks the feeling is mutual...until he dumps her. How in the world can you get over someone when you work with him and see him every single day? Her best friend reads an online article and hatches a plan that will free Presley from her love in 90 days.I love how this story is written in first person. I think all of this author's books are written that way and it really connects me to the characters in an intimate way. I feel like they are sharing thoughts and events with me, personally, and I become so emotionally invested in the book--a book hangover is what I end up with! Presley was especially easy for me to relate to. I can be quick to assume, slow to get over things, stubborn, and a little unreasonable and that's just how Presley is. I think we would be BFFs if she was real.Jackson is dreamy. But seriously...what was he thinking?! There were times when I wanted to knock some sense into him and other times when I wanted to tell Presley to just get over it and jump into that swoony man's arms! He's loyal to a fault; he's persistent; he's smart; he's patient.I love the Southern charm that exudes from the pages.. Jackson's grandma is the typical sweet and busybody lady and I adored her, as well as several other fantastic secondary characters. This story is full of emotion, sass, chemistry, and fun and I loved every second of it.Content: mild language; mild romance (kissing, some innuendo).*I received a copy from the author. I was under no obligation to review and all thoughts and opinions are my own.*

    How to Get Over Your Ex in Ninety Days is the type of book you want to throw against a wall. It's insulting to woman, mainly because of how the heroine's ex-boyfriend treats her, which doesn't make sense based on why he broke up with her. Presley, our heroine has been hurt horribly by ex-boyfriend Jackson. Presley thinks Jackson will ask her to marry him because they are the perfect couple. But boy, is she wrong. He decides to break up with her because he needs to concentrate on his new positions as vice principal of Riverton High School where she teaches drama. She is a distraction he can't have. But he still wants them to be friends, and for her to treat him the same way as if they were still a couple. What's even worse, when she ignores him and tries to move on with her life, Jackson gets upset and then decides he was wrong, and will win her back.WTF? Jackson drops his loyal and loving girlfriend for a ridiculous reason, and then when he's out of sorts because she won't be nice to him, he decides he'll take her back. Talk about manipulative, selfish, and the type of man who would drop Presley again the moment a better woman comes along. There is no HEA for this couple because I don't believe in their love, and assume Jackson would cheat on Presley in a hot second if he could.Horrible book with an emotionally manipulative man who makes the heroine feel less than worthy. This is an example of an anti-romance and should be ignored.PASS!

Thanks to her friend Capri's obsession with internet articles, they come up with a plan to get Presley over Jackson in ninety days. The plan calls for total deprivation of the person you are trying to get over. The hic-up in the plan is Jackson is the vice principal for the school Presley works for. Another wrench in the plan is Jackson wants her back.In an Oyster Shell - A cute and creative romance, one would expect from Jennifer Peel.The Pearls - It was a cute and creative story. It's not often that a man breaks up with a woman and wants her back. It was a fun twist on a break-up. I appreciate Presley's determination to stick to the plan.Full Review:Writing Pearls

    2.5 STARSI liked the premise of the book, and the beginning, but it became clear that Presley wasn't going to move on to someone new and I was disappointed. Jackson breaks up with Presley (for the lamest of reasons) and he's a pretty big jerk about it, so I was ready for her to find someone new and start fresh. But even though Jackson ended it, he kept popping up everywhere. "Can't we still be friends?" "Do you really hate me that much?" "You look beautiful today." Ugh. He became a total stalker! And everyone seemed to want them to get back together, even the principal at their school. How about holding a seminar on how not to harass your co-workers instead? It didn't help that Presley's only other dating prospects were total losers. But then, I thought Jackson was a loser too.

    So this is a really cute book, it starts with a young teacher being told by the love of her life, that she is a distraction, she is completely devastated and turns to her best friend for help. Her friend tells her of a 90 day plan to get over your Ex, Presley is happy to try anything to get rid of the pain, the only problem is, she has to see her Ex everyday as he is also her boss. This book is super cute with many real life feelings and the characters are truly believable, I thought this book was funny and entertaining and you could real feel Presley’s pain. This book was a quick fun clean read.
