Publisher's Summary

Girl meets boy. They fall in love. There's just one problem.... She wants him back. She wants you gone.

Luke is The One. After everything she's been through, Georgia knows she deserves someone like him, to make her feel loved. Safe.

The only problem is his ex-girlfriend. Luke says Cadence is having trouble moving on. She texts Luke all the time and leaves aggressive notes on Georgia's car.

Georgia starts to feel afraid. But she decides to confront Cadence...and that's when things get interesting.

From the best-selling author of The Fifth Letter comes a twisty, pacy, gripping new novel that explores the baggage we carry from our past relationships and asks how well can you ever really know someone.

Praise for Nicola Moriarty:

"Nicola Moriarty captivates with her riveting new novel, The Ex, which examines the inescapable ties of past relationships and what happens when old wounds aren't healed. Gripping, dramatic, and with twists you won't see coming, this book held me in its spell from the first page. I loved this book." (Sally Hepworth, author of The Family Next Door)

"A pacy, gripping thriller, but also full of heart and plenty of laughs for comic relief.... An absorbing, terrifying tale that perfectly captures the zeitgeist." (Sunday Telegraph)

"A compelling story of love, betrayal, and revenge, The Ex offers enthralling twists and turns." (Book'd Out)

"Will have you turning pages in a blur to find out what happens...[has] Netflix written all over it." (The Age)

Good but Predictable

The first 2 parts of this book dragged on, which would have been fine if the storyline hadn’t been so predictable. The last part of the book was faster paced, less predictable and much more enjoyable. It is worth a read.

A great read!

I really enjoyed this - it was recommended by a family member, and I didn't know what to expect, but I found it really exciting from start to finish - highly recommend! Well written and well read.

The Ex

I thought this was a dreadful book. The story was such light weight trash and the narrator’s voice ( sorry - I don’t mean to be rude) was contrived and archly coy and totally irritating

Disappointed

The story was ok, predictable by the review comments. Although it would be good to have a positive vibe on relationships.
I found the narrator’s voice for the 2 female characters annoyingly childlike and pathetic.

Engaging Australian thriller

Enjoyed this very much ... not a deep involved novel it merely requires we sit back listen and be glad we arent any of the characters!!

Not for me

Took a chance hoping storytelling ran in the Moriarty family. It doesn’t. A predictable fluffy plot. The narrator’s portrayal of Cadence (a 38 y/o woman) sounded like a 7 y/o - verrrry irritating and difficult to take seriously. It’s a hard no from me.

Frustratingly predictable

Although not a bad read - I found the story to be frustratingly predictable from the start.

Overall an enjoyable experience

During the first half of the book I thought the plot was too predictable. The second half kept me intrigued and wanting to know more.

Like a bad plot from Neighbours or Home and Away

Reads like a bad teen novel.

The antagonist revealed himself alarmingly early in the story.

Clumsy and at times cringeworthy. The pivotal moments were contrived and incredulous.

The narrator needs to familiarise herself with the correct pronunciation on irrevocably.
