The Ex Talk: Book Review

Updated: Jan 7, 2023

I don't even know where to start with this book.

In college, I worked at a commercial radio station in the promotions department. Which meant, for very little money, I set up tents and sound systems in front of concerts we promoted, in rain or shine or 105 or -2 degrees (don't perceive my singed winter coat or mention the "portable space heater," aka a flame-thrower in disguise).

I was never on the air, except for one time when I heard myself say, "KBCO, Boulder, Colorado," (I know, I'm practically famous), but I loved everything about radio. The bands that would come in and record acoustic versions of their songs in Studio C, the people I worked with who had this crazy passion for live music, and the listeners I got to meet at events - especially the ones who had been listening for decades.

The Ex Talk might have been made for me.

The premise, the banter, the millennial angst. Oh, and the right-outside-the-front-door kiss and the ONLY ONE BED. Seriously, I will never get tired of that trope. The writing is flawless and the sexual tension is nearly unbearable. All the side characters added so much depth to the story and the conflict. I have zero hesitations recommending this book!
