I really liked the first 60-70% of the book. It was being just that funny romcom that everyone is talking about in rave reviews. But after that, well, it went downhill.

PROS:

1. The funny banter between the main leads.
2. Our female lead Shay herself, she was very raw and I easily connected with her.
3. The side story of Shay's mom, dad and her best friend Ameena, it added an extra layer to the book that was emotional and realistic.

CONS:

1. A very predictable plot: I guessed what was going to happen way early in the book. Very cheesy.
2. The ending was less impressive than I even thought. I mean I like romcoms but this one was just blend and boring. ( )

**I was provided an advance copy of the book by Berkley via NetGalley. All opinions are very much my own.**

This book was such a delight on all levels, and is my first NetGalley 5 star of the new year! I was hooked by the synopsis, but really wasn't expecting just how delightful - and spicy - this turned out to be. THE EX TALK had a little bit of everything for me. It was fun, romantic, had great, snappy dialogue, some really relatable moments. Whether you love podcasts or public radio or just plain fun romantic comedies, this is the book for you.

This had the enemies to lovers trope (done right), Jewish rep, Asian-American rep, workplace misogyny (and while I wish Shay had pushed back harder, I do love what she DID do), and even the "sharing a single bed" thing.

There was fantastic dialogue, likable characters along with great character development. Both Shay and Dominic grew over the course of the book, personally and professionally. Did I mention that it gets a bit steamy? *fans self*

This was a fast, fun, unputdownable read. ( )

I liked the details about public radio and producing podcasts, but the love story seemed immature, one-dimensional and cliched. ( )

Absolutely adorable. I loved the NPR setting, the discussion of the erosion (but not death) of journalism. I really loved, the real depiction of common workplace sexism, which is subtle and crippling and does not involve Weinstein- Lauer sexual assault. The assault and intimidation is more cinematic and more tertible, but the extetnal limitations and microagressioms impact the professional lives of more women and this is important. Shay was irritating at times and really socially immature. I was never surprised she did not have any friends other than one from childhood. But Shay was also interesting and smart and Dominic was the perfect boyfriend without being too perfect. I also loved the diverse cast of characters ages 23- 60ish and Korean, Indian, Nigerian, Jewish, and bi, straight and lesbian,. Ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation were part of each character but did not define them - like real life. Mostly I liked that the characters made some bad choices and paid a price, but that did not make them villains. Overall a super modern romance. I am glad this author has moved toward more adult fare and look forward to her next. Note: I listened to the audio and really liked the reader. ( )

Romance novel about two public radio talk show hosts who don’t like each other initially, but when Shay Goldstein suggests an idea for a show where two exes talk about their relationship, “The Ex-Talk”, Shay and her nemesis, Dominic Yun, are asked to pretend that they dated and broke up. They are both hesitant, not wanting to lie to their listeners, but they want the show to succeed, so they agree to it.
Since this is a romance, of course, they fall in love. But, with every romance, there are ups and downs.
Smart, witty, and filled with steamy sex scenes, this was an enjoyable love story about facing your fears, and finding someone who will support your dreams ( )
