Another gorgeously bright and bubbly, yet beautifully warm-hearted novel by Eva Woods. Four women, with various reasons for being single, decide that their ex men folk might just be the right fit for their friends. There are plenty of amusing trip hazards along the path towards true love, however the ups and downs of friendship really are at the core of this read. Eva Woods creates believable characters, people you feel you already know or are friends with, so it’s easy to sink into and become part of this story. The Ex-Factor isn’t just sugar and spice and high jinks, there are little bites of thought-provoking attitude, ensuring a really entertaining and rather lovely read. ~ Liz Robinson
A loveable hug of a book, one that retains a positive feel of realism while embracing you with its warmhearted wit. Rachel can’t foresee a time when she will ever want to rejoin the dating game, while Patrick has created an emotional fence around his world; a Thirty List is just what they need in order to appreciate life again. The author creates an authentic setting for this romance, problems and issues arise and are dealt with or occasionally swept under the carpet. Sweet or wryly diverting lists pop up throughout the book, while the main Thirty List makes rather a lot of appearances as items are crossed off it. Engaging and believable, this is a charming romantic comedy to curl up with and quite simply enjoy. Explore our '80+ Books That Deliver a Hug' listicle for more feel-good or uplifting books.
