I love Nicola’s books and was beyond ecstatic to get the opportunity to read this one. Happy to report that it ended up being another fab read that has now cemented Nicola’s place in my list of favourite authors!
Luke seems like the perfect guy. He definitely shows up just when Georgia needs him and ends up shaking up her world. However, Luke comes with baggage in terms of his ex-girlfriend. Who exactly is Cadence and what does she want from Georgia? This book had my head spinning as I tried to guess the twists.
This was an entertaining read that had me at the edge of my seat from the first to the last page. I really liked Georgia and found her to be quite relatable. I could identify with some of her crazy decisions in her quest to find love. As the tension in the story grew, I found myself getting really worried about her. I can’t talk about the other characters without giving away too many details but let me just say that they were all very well crafted. Some had me scratching my head; others had me so frustrated that I might have shouted at them through the pages while others just got me pissed off. I loved how well Nicola brought out each personality.
I enjoyed all the twists in this story. There are some that I might have seen coming but either way, I still liked how well they were delivered. Other turns towards the end caught me by surprise.
I also love how well Nicola managed to tackle a number of sensitive themes such as emotional and physical abuse, depression and anxiety. She presented the themes in a manner that seemed realistic and also didn’t use them to take away the focus from the main story-line. I found this to be quite relatable since most abusive relationships appear normal from the outside and sometimes, emotional abuse isn’t easy to identify especially when one is still in the relationship.
With jaw-dropping twists, an array of memorable characters and a compelling story-line, I think readers of this genre will definitely enjoy The Ex-Girlfriend by Nicola Moriarty
