I have enjoyed all of this author's books and although this one is a little different, I really couldn't put it down once I had started reading it. It was quite stressful to read at times so the feeling of wanting to see how things ended up was there all the time. The characters were very "real" and some of them managed to make me switch from feeling sympathetic to totally livid with them through the book.

Debbie Viggiano writes believable characters who are a joy to read, no matter the genre. I

I was expecting a light hearted chick-lit book but this is not what this book is at all. This is about Sam who has a daughter called Ruby who he adores. His ex wife does everything that she can possibly do to make it as difficult as she can for Sam. I got quite drawn into this book but found myself getting annoyed at Sam the main character. Towards the end of the book I started to really dislike Sam. I think that some of the things that he did were in my book unforgivable. As for his ex-wife, I ...more

The Ex Factor is a meaty relationship tale that is as much a psychological story as a romantic one. Annie and Sam are ex partners but Annie is determined to wreck Sam’s new relationship using their daughter, Ruby, as a means of destruction. A complex family set-up, jealousy and a father fanatical about his daughter, ensures this is a gripping – and not always comfortable – read. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant! For anyone who has experience with a blended family this one is for you. So much of Annie, Sam, Josie, Ruby and Lucy's story resonated with me. It made me laugh and it made me mad but most of all it kept me entertained and I found myself nodding my head and rooting for all of them (even Annie!) to get a happy ending.

A mentally draining book as what poison in those characters but reality for lots of people no doubt. Long winded and irritating, the negativity and the constant I'm dumping you to suddenly they're loved up again.

A really moving story that kept me glued to the screen for half a day. I simply had to finish it! As the author says, it's no romance. But it's one of the most captivating, touching, moving stories I've ever read.
Highly recommended.

really well written, felt like the characters came to life and you either really detested them or felt for them! good holiday read as you can't put it down.
