Review: ‘The Diary of Lexi Ashford” by Jessica Sorensen



Lexi has always had a reputation for accidentally messing things up, but she never thought she’d be jobless and homeless at twenty-six. With no other choice, she returns to her hometown to do a little life searching.

Lexi quickly discovers a lot has changed in the eight years since she first left Fairville, a quirky little town in the middle of nowhere. Most of her best friends from high school are now married and have children, and her parents have sold their home and are now living in a loft above their store. One thing still remains the same, though. Anders, her old high school crush is still as hot as ever.

Determined to get her life back on track, Lexi starts searching for an apartment and a job. But during a crazy night at one of her friend’s bachelorette parties, she wakes up in Las Vegas, hungover and married to Evan, Anders’ brother, a guy she barely knows. So much for getting her life back on track.


I’m the first book of a new series we follow Lexi as she tries to get her life back on track after losing control of it, but she quickly learns that sometimes life has it’s own way of throwing your life in a loop.

This story is a bit different than Sorensen’s other books. It’s a lot lighter and focused more on staying upbeat than going to dark places. It is  refreshing and a fun read. We know that she is great at creating in depth characters and we get to see her do that with characters that aren’t so broken.

Lexi is the typical 26 year old trying to make a life for herself but nothing ever seems to go right. Being stuck at that point in our lives is always tough when you don’t know where you want to go. We will get to see Lexi go down this road to finding herself and maybe be inspired to do the same.

The story has a bit of a cliffhanger and it keeps you intrigued enough to want to keep reading. For me, I kind of liked that Sorensen tried something different but I think I like it better when she wrote these broken characters who have to transform themselves to get healed. I find that I can relate to them more and those are the best books. The ones we can see ourselves in.

Rating: C+
