Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE EX TALK by Rachel Lynn Solomon


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE EX TALK by Rachel Lynn Solomon.  As the pandemic wears on, my desire for those light and fun reads just continues to grow.  This one sounds like it’s going to be hilarious too.  I also read my first Rachel Lynn Solomon novel last month and adored it, so I can’t wait to read more from her.


The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Publication Date:  January 26, 2021 by Berkley


From Netgalley:

Public radio co-hosts navigate mixed signals in Rachel Lynn Solomon’s sparkling romantic comedy debut.

Shay Goldstein has been a producer at her Seattle public radio station for nearly a decade, and she can’t imagine working anywhere else. But lately it’s been a constant clash between her and her newest colleague, Dominic Yun, who’s fresh off a journalism master’s program and convinced he knows everything about public radio.

When the struggling station needs a new concept, Shay proposes a show that her boss green-lights with excitement. On The Ex Talk, two exes will deliver relationship advice live, on air. Their boss decides Shay and Dominic are the perfect co-hosts, given how much they already despise each other. Neither loves the idea of lying to listeners, but it’s this or unemployment. Their audience gets invested fast, and it’s not long before The Ex Talk becomes a must-listen in Seattle and climbs podcast charts.

As the show gets bigger, so does their deception, especially when Shay and Dominic start to fall for each other. In an industry that values truth, getting caught could mean the end of more than just their careers.

    I can relate! Recently, I’ve been wading through a number of apocalyptic reads that I’d requested around the start of lockdown and found it quite a struggle. Though I hope that I’ve been very mindful of the fact that it’s the damndest bad luck for the authors, timingwise… This one, though, sounds like a hoot!

    I LOVE the cover! The summary reminds me of a book by, I guess it was Nora Roberts, that had the same plot. But the cover … gorgeous *smile* Happy reading. Hope you will enjoy it!

    OMG, YES! After getting a peek at what Solomon can do with a rom-com via Today Tonight Tomorrow, I am more than excited about reading her adult rom-com. I think it will be amazing.
