1 crush on your best friend +
1 gorgeous, scheming new girl +
1 Mathletics competition =
1 big mess


Ashley Price doesn’t have much in life after being bullied so hard she had to leave her old school to live with her aunt and uncle in Pittsburgh. But the camera she borrowed from her best friend and secret crush Brendan, and her off the charts math abilities, make things a lot more bearable. Plus, since Brendan is the captain, making the school Mathletes team should be easy.

But when gorgeous new girl Sofia rolls in and steals Brendan, Ashley's place on the team, and her fragile foothold on the Mansfield Park Prep social totem pole, it’s on. Sofia is everything Ashley left her old school to escape. The only thing Ashley didn’t count on is Sofia’s sexy twin brother Vincent.

Vincent is not only the hottest boy in school, he’s charming, sweet, and he’s got his eye on Ashley. He’s also not taking no for an answer. There's no real reason Ashley shouldn't like Vincent, but with the
battle lines being drawn between her and Sofia, Ashley’s not sure which side he’s on. Or which side she wants him to be on.

She does know Sofia is trouble with a capital T, and she’s determined to make Brendan see it.

SOLVING FOR EX is a YA contemporary romance that remixes Mansfield Park as Clueless meets Mean Girls in a crazy mix of high school society, mathletic competition, and teenage romance.

Fun and fluffy with unrequited love, this story will pull at your heartstrings. I love the cover, it was what immediately attracted me to this story, it pronounces a fun read with intelligence etched upon it.

When Ashley is forced to move away from her home due to  severe bullying, in her new town of her Aunt and Uncle's she meets the lovely and friendly Brendan who welcomes her with open arms; but they have always been just friends. However, when new twins Sofia and Vincent arrive at their school, Ashley begins to encounter the loss she felt without Brendan. But with Vincent vying for her attention, can she love another and ace the Mathletes challenge?

This story from the beginning intrigued me, it was the subject of the Mathletes competition, living in the UK it is something of which I have never encountered before and have always associated with American schools meaning I was immediately intrigued as clubs like this I have only briefly heard about. Furthermore, I loved how there were little notes passes between Ashley, Vincent and Brendan with cute maths problems to solve, I love maths so they had me working them out in my head!

Our two main characters in this story are undeniably cute and adorable! We see Ashley battling her struggles but with delight she grows confidence throughout the novel. We also meet Brendan whom is Ashley's best friend, he is kind and friendly to all, never judging anyone her is very popular throughout the town. At times I did want to shout at him for not seeing the affection that Ashley clearly had for him, however, it was a delight to see his character evolve throughout the novel.

This is an adorable story of a boy and girl in high school, finding out about themselves and conquering their fears, alongside doing their hobbies alongside their closest friends.

Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature.  As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen.  Solving for Ex was born of her love for Jane Austen’s classics, and how they taught her that love stories could be funny and wickedly smart.
Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)
