Some aspects of the book I really understood. I've had the ex boyfriend where you drive around, hoping to run into him "on accident". However, I didn't check his email and stalk all guys I went on one date with.
The ending started to get better, but fell a little flat. It wa ...more
I think the reviews are a little unfair though; so many of them complain about how unlikeable the main character is. It's true, Dani isn't the best or most relatable character I've read, but her motivations are always pretty clear - she's not being mean or devious for no reason. Does a book have to hav ...more
I realized - too late! - that all the insincere blurbs and puff pieces are just that. They are NOT REVIEWS. Behind the cool cover and the PR is a poorly written novel that is less than the sum of it's parts.
The book's an easy read but I found the main character unsympathetic and sort of tedious. The other ch ...more
Number 1- I thought the characters were lame. They were predictable and you just couldn't like any of them. Dani is an idiot. She would be like that one friend you know you have who is constantly bitching about everything but refuses to do anything about it. Ever. We all have a friend like that and avoid his/her phone calls.
Number 2- Dave is a fuckhead. You KNOW he's cheating on he ...more
3 Settings where it took place or characters you met:
1. Setting: Los Angeles, CA

3. Dave—A director (mostly on TV shows), he's been Dani's boyfriend for a few years. Although she's convince ...more
Fine, okay, lots of women could relate to being on a diet so I let it slide. Then it went into her checking into her boyfriend's email ...more
I bought this book, and at the time I bought it, I was already a little embarrassed that I had any interest in it. The more I looked at it sitting on my shelf, the more embarrassed I got and the more hatred I developed towards it. Then I realized who the author was, Jules Asner! Jules Anser?! Isn't she the bikini girl who hosted Wild On E!? Well, once I realized this, I didn't want to pick up the book at all, but alas, I did in hopes of it being a pleasant surprise.
I was wrong. Literally, I...more
A lot of the other reviewers keep pointing out Dani is totally unsympathetic and I have to politely disagree. For me, I was hooked by engaging writing a woman with just the right amount of bitchiness and snark, who shared my interests - true crime and writing. I felt like from the beginning, Dani was sympathetic and over time, ...more
I don't understand why she got completely off the hook for Chloe's murder. I really expected Dani to have some wry comment at the end as she changed into an orange jumpsuit at the LA County Jail. Also, why not off Dave who gave her so much heartache? We never got to find out who "Amy Robbins" was, not to mention that Dani's friend Lauren was ...more
But I couldnt put it down...i wanted to know if she really was phycho. At first I felt bad for her because even though she was a bitch to everyone becasue i thought she was mentally ill. But i guess not...so ya i dont recommend this book to anyone.
i didnt quit get the ending..did he marry her? But who puts a wedding ring on their finger on their right hand?
I HATE DAVE...he was a total dick head, fucking bastard. I dont mean to offend ...more
There are some major character flaws here. Dani is mean to her friends, coworkers, and mom (who kind of deserves it). The levels she will go to for spying on her boyfriend or dates are unreal and sick. Do men cheat on her because she doesn't trust them or because they are jerks? Maybe both. But then agai ...more
