This book jumped out to me on the shelves one day while I was working, and so I picked it up, hoping for a fun and light read. While it started out promising, I realized about halfway through that I didn’t like the main character at all. Andi Sevalas stars as the heroine of this chick-lit book, and throughout most of the book, she is opinionated, bitchy, and a hypocrite.

Just your average chick lit/romance here. The heroine is one of those fun, trouble-prone women typical of the genre. I would have like to have gotten to know Ethan, the love-interest, better.

The description of the book that Livingsocial has is totally inaccurate. The main character's boyfriend didn't announce he was getting married, she wasn't thrown from a taxi and the person who eventually comes to her aid when she falls down cellar stairs is a lawyer not a doctor. That aside, it was a good book and a lot of fun to read.
I thought the premise was interesting, but I felt like the book was filled with too much filler. That, and the main character was too snobbish. I didn't like her attitude, and her brash inclinations. In general, it was okay. Yet, it wasn't realistic. And to say in the least, I hate it when writers have problems that magically disappear. And it happened way too much in this book.
