The Ex Talk
Shay Goldstein has been a producer at her Seattle public radio station for nearly a decade, and she can’t imagine working anywhere else. But lately it’s been a constant clash between her and her newest colleague, Dominic Yun, who’s fresh off a journalism master’s program and convinced he knows everything about public radio.
When the struggling station needs a new concept, Shay proposes a show that her boss green-lights with excitement. On The Ex Talk, two exes will deliver relationship advice live, on air. Their boss decides Shay and Dominic are the perfect co-hosts, given how much they already despise each other. Neither loves the idea of lying to listeners, but it’s this or unemployment. Their audience gets invested fast, and it’s not long before The Ex Talk becomes a must-listen in Seattle and climbs podcast charts.
As the show gets bigger, so does their deception, especially when Shay and Dominic start to fall for each other. In an industry that values truth, getting caught could mean the end of more than just their careers.
When I first got this book I couldn’t figure out why it was taking me so long to pick up The Ex Talk. When I finally did pick it up though I realized that this was one of those books that had to be read at the right moment.
I devoured this book from the moment I started it one weekend. I absolutely adored this book. I have no complaints about this book at all and Rachel Lynn Solomon has become one of my favorite authors. I will read anything by her now, especially since her last book too.
I was super excited that this was her first romance book. And I was even more excited to see that it was an enemies to lovers trope and that it featured around journalism which was my field of study in college. Except I majored in newspaper, not radio. I still loved that aspect though.
The Ex Talk was my first five star rating of the year and I was very pleased that it was. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this book. And thank you to the author, Rachel Lynn Solomon for gifting me the eARC copy of this through the giveaway on Twitter. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you for reading!
