I enjoyed this book! It was a fun, easy, beachy, chick lit kind of book. In fact, I read it in less than 12 hours. I didn't like it as much as the first book in the series (Slightly Single), but that definitely doesn't mean that I didn't like it at all! Tracey was still fun, funny and easy to relate to. I mean, which one of us hasn't been dating a new guy, wondering if it's too good to be true, holding our breath waiting for the other shoe to drop? Which one of us hasn't thought we were in love...more
This is the second book in the 'Slightly' series. Its not often in the chick lit world that as the series continues, the books stay good. It wasn't as great as the first one, but was still pretty decent. The main character stayed the same, as did her friends. It takes place a few months after the first book ended, and Tracey meets a cute guy at the office Christmas party who turns out to be her boss's roommate. Her friend Buckley who she's had a bit of a crush on since the first book breaks up w...more
This is seriously THE BEST SERIES I have ever read! I highly recommend it to everyone! I love the characters, especially Tracey. I could relate to her on so many levels it was scary, at some points I was convinced author Wendy Markham had somehow gotten into my brain and wrote about my life! I breezed through the book and was eager to start the next, and the next - by the time Suburban ended I was so sad to have to say goodbye to the storyline and characters! I still say there needs to be a fina...more
I'm always worried when reading the second book of a series, especially if I really liked the first book. But this book didn't disappoint. Iisn't as NYC focused as in the first book, but you still get somewhat a sense of city life. I thought Tracey's friends were getting rather annoying--I'd say very hypocritcal. It's almost made me wonder what the real motive was behind their "advice". I can't wait to read the next book in the series! I absolutely adore Tracey and her personality--I can see mys...more
After Slightly Single this one was a no-brainer. It's good, but a bit of stating the obvious. As my daughter read the first and wanted to continue the series I had to pick this up sooner rather than later to make sure it's appropriate for her age.. So now I can give it the green light. I have the next and see there's also "slightly suburban" but don't know I'll feel up to that one. I've been rather disappointed by subsequent books in series recently...
This was a fun read; it's chick-lit after all. This book is a sequel to Slightly Single which I did not read, but you get the idea of what happened in the first book. The story revolves around the newly single and svelte Tracey who finds herself confused by the world of dating in New York. The author was very funny and I identified with her humor. It's a good book for the beach or a rainy day.
Awesome read. I love this series because Tracey is a real woman, someone we can all identify with. This is the second book in the series and I can't wait to read more. While struggling with trusting herself and men again, she decides that sometimes, you just have to follow your heart.
I don't know why I got so hooked to this series because there isn't really anything special to it, but I love it. I had Slightly Single for 3 years before I finally read it - finished in two weeks and immediately bought the next one and also finished in two weeks. I don't like how it ended, but am hoping things change in the next one.
Slightly Settled is book 2 in the "Slightly" series by Wendy Markham. It is your typical chick-lit: part romance, part life-journey, all fluff. Tracey Spadolini finally dumped her loser boyfriend and is working to make positive changes in her life. Until said ex wants her back, her best guy friend kisses her, and she meets a new guy at the company Christmas party whom she spends the entire evening making out with. And said "new guy" turns out to be her boss's roommate. Everything is tied up (alm...more
Not a great follow up novel, but I'm invested in the series so I'll force myself to read the rest. Hopefully they'll get better. I found Tracey to be really annoying in this book. One minute she is talking about how great she looks but the next minute she has the worst case of low self-esteem. I also don't think her friendship with Bentley is very realistic. I'm curious to see what his role will be as the books progress. I found the plot to be non-existent and I was rushing to get to the end. I...more
