    I knew going in this was going to be over-the-top ridiculousness. For a hundred pages or so it served its purpose--light, mindless reading for when I got home from work. It was fun for a while, but then it just got boring and messy. I didn?t care what happened to any of these charact...

    Three women with one thing in common, or should I say one person in common - Phillip! Ruby - the ex-wife who never seemed to move on. Imogen - the soon to be ex - wife #2, also the mother of his only child Naomi- current live in girlfriend. Young and beautiful. It?s going...

    Jo Jakeman writes a stellar emotional roller coaster of a debut novel, a tense and harrowing portrayal of an issue that is widespread in society but often flies beneath the radar, domestic violence. In this psychological thriller, it all begins with the funeral of Phillip Rochester, a ...

    Dark humor and entertaining plot / Just add popcorn Phillip is a master manipulator and he has been at it for awhile, but when his girlfriend and former wives band together to plot their revenge, he is in for a heavy dose of his own medicine! Really? They did what to him? Oh n...

    A satisfyingly noir tale of three abused women seeking their revenge against one man.  Phillip Rochester is one of the cruelest, most manipulative, abusive men that these three women could imagine but they didn't have to imagine him. He was their reality. When his current wife, Imo...

    This is one fun read! Three women are involved with Philip - his ex, his present wife and his girlfriend. Once an a**hole, always an a**hole. And Philip could win the prize. Nasty, manipulative, abusive. Check, check, check. But Philip is a decorated police officer, so it?s no...

    Batman needs to shut his judgey mouth. But yes, I probably have been. This book totally would rock the movie of the week though. Imogene is about to be the ex-wife. If her wanker husband Phillip will ever agree to just sign the papers. He has himself a brand new home and new w...

    A bit of a mess but I still kinda liked it. This is one of those books where you find out the ending right at the beginning of the story and the rest of the book is the details of what happened, in this case how the ex wound up dead and if the ex -wife, soon-to-be ex-wife, and current ...

    Wow! Crazy story but quite good! 4.5 Stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have to say this book is loaded with triggers and raw description of those affected by domestic violence. However, the book is also about revenge and that brings strange bedfellows in and of itself. So if you are...

    Wow! Crazy story but quite good! 4.5 Stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have to say this book is loaded with triggers and raw description of those affected by domestic violence. However, the book is also about revenge and that brings strange bedfellows in and of itself. So if you are...

    When I first read this description, my thoughts were kind of "oh cool, a psychological thriller meets first wives club"...and DAHLINGGG, I was here for that. But this? No. What started as an interesting premise, an abusive husband, an ex wife wanting to take revenge, kind of spiral...

    The Exes? Revenge by Jo Jakeman is a debut thriller that for this reader just seemed to lack a bit of thrill and border more on a drama. The story is one that begins at the end and then takes the readers back to a so many days before countdown to where we?ve begun. Imogen is in ...

    How far would you go for revenge on your ex? Imogen's husband is a bad man. And now he's given her an ultimatum: get out of the family home in the next fortnight or I will fight you for custody of our son. This book starts with the funeral of Philip Rochester, a policeman who was no...

    Wow! Crazy story but quite good! 4.5 Stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have to say this book is loaded with triggers and raw description of those affected by domestic violence. However, the book is also about revenge and that brings strange bedfellows in and of itself. So if you are...

    Three women with one thing in common, or should I say one person in common - Phillip! Ruby - the ex-wife who never seemed to move on. Imogen - the soon to be ex - wife #2, also the mother of his only child Naomi- current live in girlfriend. Young and beautiful. It?s going...

    Dark humor and entertaining plot / Just add popcorn Phillip is a master manipulator and he has been at it for awhile, but when his girlfriend and former wives band together to plot their revenge, he is in for a heavy dose of his own medicine! Really? They did what to him? Oh n...

    A satisfyingly noir tale of three abused women seeking their revenge against one man.  Phillip Rochester is one of the cruelest, most manipulative, abusive men that these three women could imagine but they didn't have to imagine him. He was their reality. When his current wife, Imo...

    This is one fun read! Three women are involved with Philip - his ex, his present wife and his girlfriend. Once an a**hole, always an a**hole. And Philip could win the prize. Nasty, manipulative, abusive. Check, check, check. But Philip is a decorated police officer, so it?s no...

    Batman needs to shut his judgey mouth. But yes, I probably have been. This book totally would rock the movie of the week though. Imogene is about to be the ex-wife. If her wanker husband Phillip will ever agree to just sign the papers. He has himself a brand new home and new w...

    This is the ultimate story of revenge! ? ? ? ? My Thoughts: I read The Exes? Revenge with Holly, and this is just the kind of read you want to share with a friend! Also called Sticks and Stones in the UK, this one had me enthralled from the first line: ?The day...

    4 Stars Divorce (and even breakups) can be nasty. If you?ve been through it, you know. Sometimes you?re not even sure you?ll survive. In this case, Phillip Rochester?s exe?s find out for themselves. Imogen and Phillip are newly divorced. As the father of their child, P...

    I love a delicious tale of revenge, especially when the villain is as deserving as the one in THE EXES? REVENGE. Phillip is an abuser, control freak, and master manipulator. He continues to make life miserable for his exes and current girlfriend, until finally the three women reach t...

    A bit of a mess but I still kinda liked it. This is one of those books where you find out the ending right at the beginning of the story and the rest of the book is the details of what happened, in this case how the ex wound up dead and if the ex -wife, soon-to-be ex-wife, and current ...

    Who doesn't like a good revenge story? The title alone was all I needed to make sure I got my hands on a copy of this and I went in with high expectations. Were they met? I'd say yes, for the most part. Highlights: -The many layers to the story and how it all unfolded. -I m...

    What first caught my eye with this one? That cover..... and of course I was thinking "ooo awesome for a bunch of women to seek revenge on their ex?" BUT this?? Yikes... NO The premise starts out with a bang at Philip's funeral.... Three women Naomi, Imogen, and Ruby all know deep do...

    Ominous, relentless, and intense! The Exes' Revenge is a character-driven, domestic thriller that delves into how much relationships define us and reminds us that hell hath no fury as a woman scorned. The prose is gritty and taut. The characters, including the sinister, despicabl...

    This is the debut novel by author Jo Jakeman. The book starts with the funeral of Phillip Rochester, a police officer before going back in time to tell the events leading up to his death. Phillip is not a nice man and has abused his two wives and his lover throughout his adult life. Th...

    The Exes? Revenge by Jo Jakeman is a debut thriller that for this reader just seemed to lack a bit of thrill and border more on a drama. The story is one that begins at the end and then takes the readers back to a so many days before countdown to where we?ve begun. Imogen is in ...

    How far would you go for revenge on your ex? Imogen's husband is a bad man. And now he's given her an ultimatum: get out of the family home in the next fortnight or I will fight you for custody of our son. This book starts with the funeral of Philip Rochester, a policeman who was no...

    I expected to feel free, unburdened, but when the curtains close around Phillip Rochester's satin-lined coffin, all I feel is indigestion. The opening lines of Sticks and Stones grabbed me ? and I was enthralled until the very last page! Phillip Rochester was a policeman; his r...

    This was my first novel by Jo Jakeman, but I'm already looking forward to her next one. The story moved at a good pace and was engaging, but what I really liked was the characters development of the protagonist, Imogen. She starts off very meek and afraid (with good reason!) and change...

    2.5 / 5 stars I'm not going to go fully into detail about this story, because The Exes' Revenge was one of the more disappointing stories that I've picked up this summer. Imogen and her son Alistair are trying to recuperate after Imogen decides to divorce her husband Phillip Roche...

    Wow! Crazy story but quite good! 4.5 Stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have to say this book is loaded with triggers and raw description of those affected by domestic violence. However, the book is also about revenge and that brings strange bedfellows in and of itself. So if you are...

    When I first read this description, my thoughts were kind of "oh cool, a psychological thriller meets first wives club"...and DAHLINGGG, I was here for that. But this? No. What started as an interesting premise, an abusive husband, an ex wife wanting to take revenge, kind of spiral...

    I want to add to this review that if anyone who has ever suffered from Domestic Violence, be it verbally, physically or emotionally really should keep that in mind if they read this novel due to the subject matter. I'm a Victim's Advocate for Domestic Violence Survivors, and I found my...

    It's a fun idea not too well executed. Phillip is a D-bag and his soon to be ex-wife, his girlfriend and his first wife team up in a busted up, somewhat reluctant version of First Wives' Club. Only there is no Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler or Diane Keaton and everything that happens is unb...

    This is the ultimate story of revenge! ? ? ? ? My Thoughts: I read The Exes? Revenge with Holly, and this is just the kind of read you want to share with a friend! Also called Sticks and Stones in the UK, this one had me enthralled from the first line: ?The day...

    I love a delicious tale of revenge, especially when the villain is as deserving as the one in THE EXES? REVENGE. Phillip is an abuser, control freak, and master manipulator. He continues to make life miserable for his exes and current girlfriend, until finally the three women reach t...

    A bit of a mess but I still kinda liked it. This is one of those books where you find out the ending right at the beginning of the story and the rest of the book is the details of what happened, in this case how the ex wound up dead and if the ex -wife, soon-to-be ex-wife, and current ...

    Who doesn't like a good revenge story? The title alone was all I needed to make sure I got my hands on a copy of this and I went in with high expectations. Were they met? I'd say yes, for the most part. Highlights: -The many layers to the story and how it all unfolded. -I m...

    What first caught my eye with this one? That cover..... and of course I was thinking "ooo awesome for a bunch of women to seek revenge on their ex?" BUT this?? Yikes... NO The premise starts out with a bang at Philip's funeral.... Three women Naomi, Imogen, and Ruby all know deep do...

    Ominous, relentless, and intense! The Exes' Revenge is a character-driven, domestic thriller that delves into how much relationships define us and reminds us that hell hath no fury as a woman scorned. The prose is gritty and taut. The characters, including the sinister, despicabl...

    This is the debut novel by author Jo Jakeman. The book starts with the funeral of Phillip Rochester, a police officer before going back in time to tell the events leading up to his death. Phillip is not a nice man and has abused his two wives and his lover throughout his adult life. Th...

    The Exes? Revenge by Jo Jakeman is a debut thriller that for this reader just seemed to lack a bit of thrill and border more on a drama. The story is one that begins at the end and then takes the readers back to a so many days before countdown to where we?ve begun. Imogen is in ...

    I expected to feel free, unburdened, but when the curtains close around Phillip Rochester's satin-lined coffin, all I feel is indigestion. The opening lines of Sticks and Stones grabbed me ? and I was enthralled until the very last page! Phillip Rochester was a policeman; his r...

    This was my first novel by Jo Jakeman, but I'm already looking forward to her next one. The story moved at a good pace and was engaging, but what I really liked was the characters development of the protagonist, Imogen. She starts off very meek and afraid (with good reason!) and change...

    2.5 / 5 stars I'm not going to go fully into detail about this story, because The Exes' Revenge was one of the more disappointing stories that I've picked up this summer. Imogen and her son Alistair are trying to recuperate after Imogen decides to divorce her husband Phillip Roche...
