It is hard to review The Ex without giving anything away. Let's just say girl meets boy, they fall in love, bad things happen, there are many twists and turns and it probably does not end the way you expected it would. The author paces her story well, creates good characters and writes ...more

I am not going to say too much about the plot for this story - to do so would be to spoil it for anybody wanting to read it. All I will say is this - who can you trust? Georgia meets Luke ...more

Maybe because I have read lots of similar books this year, I thought it had a pretty obvious twist. However, even though I guessed what was going to happen at an ...more
I really enjoyed this fast pa ed, twist filled thriller. This is a tense and suspenseful read. The characters are well rounded and believable. It's hard to review this book without giving away spoilers. This is a well written story with a great plotline that you will hard ...more

A story of falling in love, trust, betrayal, revealing your true colours and mystery, this novel will reel you in from the very first sentence, through to the final word.

If you look at the title, read the blurb, know your psychological thrillers and think you can guess the premise and outlay of this book, you would be right!
It is exactly as it says its going to be
If you love these kind of stories then its the equivalent of a comfort food meal, exactly what you want and enjoyable!
I Do love these kind of tales and love the ‘knowing whats going on’ before they do kinda thing and pretty much guessed like a dot to dot the first 75% of the book, I didnt really warm to ...more
I absolutely adore Nicola Moriarty!
This is the third book of hers that I have read & she is definitely an auto-buy author for me.
The being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this read! I did guess what was actually happening, which left me, for most of the book, yelling at the characters and covering my eyes when they didn't listen!
This is also how I watch horror movies... THE SUSPENSE KILLS ME!!
Even though I guessed the 'twist', the book still hooked me in and had me on the edge of my seat!...more
I picked the twist 30% into the book. I am actually quite impressed with how accurate I was. But then instantly unhappy with the whole book because it was obviously predictable....
I wanted to like it ... but I honestly felt the writing was so flat and simple. The characters didn’t have too much depth or personality that I connected with. The story line plodded along without really anything happening that was exciting. I kept reading hoping it would get better - it didn’ ...more
This was my first Nicola Moriarty book and I practically consumed it. If her others are anything as gripping as this one, I daresay it won’t be my last!
This book is excellently written, has a great cast of characters, and is very compelling, and while I suspected certain elements early on, the how and the why were done brilliantly.
Everything in this story is so intricately woven that I can’t say much more without giving away plot points, but ...more

I thought I knew what to expect when I started reading The Ex, however the story soon diverts into a clever twist. The storyline was well constructed and I felt myself getting totally immersed in this read. I enjoyed the different characters in the story and how intense some of their scheming made you feel about them.
Georgia a nurse meets charming and handsome Luke in a bar and they soon start dating. Unfortunately Georgia finds that Luke has some unwanted baggage that ...more
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Women's Fiction, Romance
Gah, women's fiction: c'mon publishers, this category has no place in 2019. Men read romance, men write romance, stop trying to alienate a potential reader base.
Anyway, I found this book kind of slow at the start, and felt it was a little predictable. I was pretty sure what was going on and almost gave up.
Glad I didn't though, once things picked up they rocketed along, with surprises way ...more
This gets 4 stars for being fun and easy-to-read. There is not-hard-to-guess mystery here, and the writing is solid, but not literary or amazing. It was just the type of book to read when you don't want to think too much and have some nice leisure time on ...more
This is the second book I have read from Nicola Moriarty. When I heard she was releasing The Ex-Girlfriend I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy.
I was drawn into this book from the first paragraph. The lift door was about to close when a hand thrust it open again. Georgina stepped back, don't let it be Cadence!!
Georgina had been talking to Brett on Tinder for weeks when he finally asked her on a date. ...more
That is when things just started to go a little tiny bit crazy and that feeling, you know the one that sits ...more
