Karla Uh-oh...doesn't look like it played out to well!

message 2: by Michelle (new)

Michelle [Helen Geek] It didn't .. at all. I was sorely disappointed.

Tessamari ♥Many Waters...♥ ~ Sweet Spot Book Blog Oh wow! This shocks me. I'm so sorry you didn't like it. Looked like from your status updates, you were liking it. :(( I'm not having much luck with recommending books you. The kid made me laugh, but the again I don't have kids so his mouth didn't shock me. Sorry, Michelle :(

Michelle [Helen Geek] Oh, no worries. I'm a big girl and really don't mind. If I did, I'd never read anything anyone rec's and that would be no fun. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Seriously, no worries. I'll keep reading your reviews and following you. I think for every 3 I like there may be one I don't, which is not bad at all.

Wendy Nice honest review Michelle. Thanks for the heads up. ;)

Jill Thanks for the review, Michelle! I always enjoy getting differing takes from friends on the same book.

Camille Thanks for the review...was iffy on whether I wanted to try this one but your insight helped make up my mind. It's a no-go for me.

Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter She used it as filler for a story seriously lacking. Almost like having sex for the sake of sex in a book. Same thing here with the humor.
Sometimes it's just too much. And what you said about the kids? Not good. Good and honest review, Michelle! Thanks for the heads-up.

Michelle [Helen Geek] Thanks Baba!

Holly's pages in pink Pretty accurate review, I think. Never have I laughed so hard- but agree about a lacking storyline- was thinking something might branch off of the Tasha situation, or even questioning paternity (doubts at least!)- so many opportunities to turn it into something emotionally stronger...**sigh**

Michelle [Helen Geek] I know. I really can't remember laughing so much in a book for quite a while. It was almost like bad comedy from a very talented comedian. So funny until it just wasn't anymore. No point to it so you had nothing to relate to or fall back on. It is getting some really kick ass reviews, so I'm definitely in the minority here, but I need more than just tabasco ... you know? Gotta' have something to sink your teeth into and this just never did it for me and the stuff they put that kid through - alarming. So, yep. I was not a fan and I won't be reading more by this author. I have a feeling, she is getting kudo's from this presentation she won't see the need for improvement.

Searock Thank you so much for this review, Michelle. I have heard raving reviews for this, but now I'll be going in with my eyes wide open.

message 13: by Michelle (new)

Michelle [Helen Geek] See Splage's cooments too. She says a few of the same things.

Stacia (the 2010 club) I just started this one, so I'll be curious to see if we have similar feelings or not.

message 15: by Michelle (new)

Michelle [Helen Geek] Oh, I hope you enjoy it Stac! It is funny and I laughed more than I had in a long time with this one, then it just became very monotonous. And, like I mentioned, I hated how she portrayed this young boy.

Keep us posted.

Crystal Totally agree with your review Michelle. And you've saved me having to write one :) Every character's voice sounded the same, even the 4 year old! I actually felt like a prude reading this, I think you can have too many references to penises and vaginas just for the sake of it. Oh well, still enough laugh out loud moments to keep me reading :)

message 17: by Searock (new)

Searock Twilight, of course.
The only one that a writer doesn't get sued for :)

Not surprising, it was called "The Vagina Monologues", (I forget the subtitle). There's a million "vagina" references, so it makes sense.

message 18: by Paula (new)

Paula I liked your review, because FINALLY someone else called out the incredulity of the behavior of 4 year old Gavin. While I LOVED the book and the author's comedienne style, I couldn't get past all the inconsistencies with the character of Gavin. You can't have him acting like a 2 year old toddler, and then having speech and comprehension skills like an 8 year old. It doesn't make ANY sense. BUT...since I took this book as a stand-up act, more than fine literary prose, I overlooked it and just enjoyed the ride. Tara's got some mad comedic writing skills - she's destined for TV writing, I think!

message 19: by Dena (new)

Dena Could not have said it better myself! This review was spot on.

message 20: by Ellie (new)

Ellie Janco "One suggestion for this author … pick something. Either focus on the humor or focus on the romance or develop your talents to balance the two much better than this debut demonstrates."... Well said. Completely agreed.

message 21: by AerinLuvs (new)

AerinLuvs Well I found this at the library and it is available so I will start it because I'm a lover of LOL-moments-when-reading-romance type of girl.
