Ava Baker, publicist extraordinaire and successful career woman is about to experience the most awkward of times. Matthew Hawkins, her teenage crush comes back into your life. Yes, the crush that she hid because she was too young and more importantly, Matthew was engaged to her sister. Erm … yes. Imagine those family dinners!
I thoroughly enjoyed THE EX EFFECT. It is well plotted, the pacing is spot on and even with some incredibly uncomfortable scenes, none of the characters exhibit any too-stupid-to-live moments.
Ava is a great heroine. She is a capable adult that shines in her profession. She’s definitely got a sense of humour and she proves herself to be a good friend. Her family on the other hand… not so good. As upbeat as the book was there were times the book had me in tears. Ava realises her family’s treatment of her has impacted how she interacts with people she love, and it’s something she needs to address to get her happy ever after.
Ava and Matthew have excellent chemistry and their scenes together are a pleasure to read.
THE EX EFFECT was my first Karla Sorensen read but she will definitely be added to the rotation. Highly recommended.
