The Ex Talk (Paperback)

The Ex Talk Cover Image
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


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.

About the Author

Rachel Lynn Solomon worked in public radio before her love of storytelling carried her to fiction. She's the author of several books for teens and adults and will tell anyone who'll listen that it really doesn't rain that much in Seattle, where she lives with her husband and tiny dog.

Praise For…

"Forget fake dating ... fake exes is where it's at! The Ex Talk has all the public radio nerdiness that you didn't know was missing from your life. Shay and Dominic bicker and banter their way into each other's hearts the way only former enemies turned pretend exes can, helped along the way by what may be the world's naughtiest dog. An absolute delight of a read!" —Jen DeLuca, author of Well Met
"This book gave me genuine butterflies. I fell in love with Shay and Dominic falling in love." —Sarah Hogle, author of You Deserve Each Other

"An impossibly funny and extraordinarily swoon-worthy romance brimming with banter-filled sexual tension! I fell in love with Dominic and Shay and read the entire book with a smile on my face. Rachel Lynn Solomon has written a rom-com perfect for anyone who’s ever felt not quite good enough."—Kerry Winfrey, author of Not Like the Movies

"Rachel Lynn Solomon's The Ex Talk is completely charming, hugely romantic, and utterly absorbing: I adored Shay and Dominic and wholly rooted for their happily ever after—not just in love, but in every area of their complicated and realistic lives." —Kate Clayborn, author of Love Lettering

The Ex Talk is a smart, soulful slow-burn romance that made me swoon. The characters are so charming and relatable that I couldn’t help but want to listen to their podcast for real!”—Andie J. Christopher, USA Today bestselling author of Not That Kind of Guy
