APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
There’s something in the water in the Moriarty family household. Following in the footsteps of her older sisters, Liane and Jaclyn, Nicola Moriarty is making a name for herself writing page-turning fiction. The Ex is a suspenseful, read-it-in-one-sitting domestic drama about a woman who falls for a seemingly perfect man she meets at a bar. There’s just one problem: he still lives with his awful, obsessive ex-girlfriend. The Ex drew us into the joys and flutters of new love—and the terrifying twists that soon unfold.
Trigger warning if you’ve been in a toxic relationship!! A testament to good writing and character development, truly nailed it.
Neat, storyline a little “too convenient”
Couldn’t put this book down, easy to read page turner
Nothing new to see here, folks
Younger sister of Liane (Big Little Lies) and Jaclyn: Sydney’s take on the Brontes
Hetero men are responsible for every misfortune suffered by women. What they don’t cause directly—inherent stupidity for instance—they exacerbate.
Derivative and predictable. Prince Charming isn’t. Gay guys and your favourite bro are okay. Girl power wins out.
Western Sydney, but it could be anywhere in the metropolitan world
Derivative and predictable. Gullible chicks versus Dr Evil.
Polished, good pace.
