This book made me quit my book club.

The best thing about this book was that it makes you realize that anyone really CAN get published! They should really file it under "inspiration".

I know, I know, I got what I deserved. I just wanted a fun summer read and I loved her book Jemima J, but this was *complete* garbage. The characters were shallow and unlikeable (at one point the main character realizes she is literally prostituting herself out). She is such a self-satisfied whiner that I found myself actively rooting *against* her.

This was one Jane Green book from her chick lit days I never read. I wondered why I never bought this and now I know why. I must have read the sample and said no thank you. That was a smart decision. I am kind of horrified at how bad this book was. The main character was awful, so were two of her love interests. Her friend was having issues (serious ones) that she ignored. Her mother made Mrs. Bennett in Pride and Prejudice look like a saint. I mean my God. That's a terrible bar to be lower than ...more

If you want poignancy, you won't get that in this book. This is your average chick literature, with a protagonist whose only goal in mind is to end up with the guy of her dreams.

Now, you may be thinking, why the fuck do I like this book? For starters, I have already breached below my expectations for a book when it comes to chick literature. I already expect a common plot, a protagonist with an I'm-ugly-as-fuck self-esteem and some twisted, completely shallow "hindrance" why the protagonist won'

This book was utter garbage, how do books like this get published. Firstly I didn't really warm to any of the characters and I couldn't stand the main character Libby; I found her really shallow, unpleasant and materialistic. She really proves how feminism hasn't changed anything if woman are still intent on marrying rich men. I didn't care for any of the characters, especially Nick, the guy who Libby is in love with. I didn't warm to him at all, he's just your classic commitment phobe who can't ...more
I don’t know what to expect when I first picked up this novel. Jane Green was not one of the authors that I’m familiar with so I thought it is good to try something new. Sadly to say though, the result was rather frustrating.

The book started off OK but once I passed the first hundred-page, I literally start to yawn. The predictability of the plots and some annoying characters really turned off my interest but still, I continued reading in hope that there might be something that could spark my in
The first quarter of the book was good, you get into the story and want to know what will happen… then in the middle part I would say for half of the book I had a very strong sense of déjà-vu with another book I’ve read this year, it was a carbon copy of the story, but checking the publication dates Mr. Maybe was written first so I guess it was the other way around and the Sophie part of “I wish I were you” was the same story as this book, it only upset me because I really felt like reading the ...more

I tried to get back to my Rom-Com, chick-lit, Sophie Kinsella style books but I guess I'm way too deep into other genres. This didn't cut it. It was not a hugely disappointing read, just s forgettable, you kind of dread the time you've invested in reading it.

To Libby Mason, Mr. Right has always meant Mr. Rich. A twenty seven-year-old publicist, she's barely able to afford her fashionable and fabulous lifestyle and often has to foot the bill for dates with Struggling Writer Nick, a sexy but perpetually strapped-for-cash guy she's dating (no commitments – really). So when Ed, Britain's wealthiest but stodgiest bachelor, enters the picture, her idea of the fairy tale romance is turned on it's head.

I was Libby Mason a few years ago so I think Jane Green

More about Jane Green...
“I want someone who will adore me so much that they cannot even walk past me without touching me in some way. I want someone who will worship me, even when.. I'm sitting around in fluffy slippers with no makeup on and hair scraped back.

I'm sick and tired of being on my own. Most of the time I'm fine. Some of the time I even quite enjoy it. But at this precise moment in time I'm fed up with it. I've had enough..”
“To be honest, I'm not sure about this whole scared of commitment business. I think it's become too handy, a useful phrase that men can bandy about whenever they feel like being assholes. And sure, I do believe there are some men who are genuinely terrified of commitment, but there aren't that many, and for the most part I think it's that they haven't met the right woman yet. Because if a man, no matter how scared he professed to be, met the woman of his dreams, he wouldn't want to let her go, would he? And sure, he might not want to actually get married, but if he were madly in love and risked losing her, he'd do it, wouldn't he?

That's what I think, anyway.”
