Shopping trips in Paris, dating in LA, dining in Italy and even a prince; Blow Me has it all. I enjoy reading novels where I can escape into another world that is nothing like my own and Blow Me offers just that. With a provocative and edgy title ‘Blow Me’ I just knew that I had to get me teeth into this stunning novel.

Blow Me focuses around Skylar, Dawn and Chloe, all single, close to forty and acting much younger. Each woman is desperate to figure their lives...more

I actually got this book as an official review book and as such, it came with a couple of publicity letters courtesy of the publisher/editor/PR office. These missives focused mainly on how Ross' book was an attempt to describe how horrible, shallow and materialistic the dating scene is in L.A. especially in regards to women who're approaching or have crested the 40-year hill. Ross actually summarizes the overall issues very neatly by writing, "Men in their forties wanted girls in their twenties,...more

I wanted to give this book 4 stars, but I didn't love it as much as I had hoped. I won the book in a First Reads giveaway, and I was drawn to it because of it's name. A book called Blow Me? I figured it had to be funny. It was like Sexy and the City, but less classy.

The book is about three single friends (Skye, Dawn, and Chloe) around the age of 40 (give or take) living in Los Angeles. My biggest issue with this book was that I found it difficult to relate to the main character Skye. Skye was ex...more

I won this from Goodreads.

While I didn't love it, I didn't totally hate it either. It was a quick read with some funny chapters. The character Skye was like that roommate/friend/family member that we have all had at one point in life that you love, but just want to frequently give a good shake.

However, as a huge fan of Sex and the City, I must say that the book tried to copy off of the series without much success. Too much talk of Skye's sexual "skills". You don't need to mention it every other...more

As Lennie says, if you are a Sex and the City fan, you are going to devour this book. If you enjoy reading about women's friendships, how through difficult times they help one another, you are doing to definitely love this book.

Blow Me is the epitome of chick lit!

Can't wait for Lennie's next one!

Lennie Ross is currently on tour with CLP Blog Tours and her novel Blow Me. This story follows three “friends” living in the very different world we call LA. Skylar works lazily as an executive assistant, not taking her job seriously until she is fired, burns down her apartment in the middle of foreplay, and is now living out of her car. Dawn is more practical, but doesn’t enjoy her job working as a matchmaker, setting up wealthy older men with young beautiful woman. She also feels her biologica...more

Blow me is a quick read that balances on the edge of fun/interesting and meh. Like many books, it had it’s highs and lows and having finished, I’m not really sure where I stand… The writing was great. It kept a nice light hearted tone while touching on many of the issues single woman face as they get older: infertility, loneliness and dating in a world that seems to be completely focused on age. And I loved how the setting, LA, was used to highlight the problems and show off each woman’s mistake...more

Didn't love it, didn't hate it. Felt sort of...meh...about it.

Dawn, Skylar, and Chloe are around forty years old. I don't know if it's because of the way they acted or because I'm in my twenties, but I kept picturing them as much younger. There were multiple times throughout the novel that I had to remind myself that these women were not, in fact, twenty somethings, but instead, they were older women who hadn't found their right paths in life yet. I think this is the reason why I didn't love th...more

Daughter in law won this unfortunately named book on a Goodreads giveaway. The notes indicate that it is a satire of LA women, on the order of Sex and the City. Not so much. Full of pop culture name dropping, restaurant, wine, hotel, movie stars, etc. These women are desperate to get married, have marginal jobs, bad personalities, and empty pointless lives. And of course in the end 2 of them are rescued by wealthy men. Gee what a surprise. One of the main characters sort of disappears and at the...more

I really enjoyed this book. There were so many funny parts. I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for Ms Ross' next book!

I liked the book. I thought the story lagged a little in the middle. I was happy how it ended.
