Wow!!! What a great book. The main characters keep you laughing and crying with them through out. I'm sure most women can relate to at least one of the characters in this book because I know I did. I love that you get to see the point of view from each character about what has taken place. It's not a one sided story as most things in life are not. This is a must read book. If you are offended by foul language and sexual situations please don't read. Though I say you are missing out if you don't. ...more

I just finished reading The D Word by Liz and Lisa and loved it! I loved it so much that I got their first book, I'll Have Who She's Having and read it too.

It is amazing to me that 2 people can work so closely together to be able to write a book. It seems to me that writing a book by yourself would be challenging enough, but then to throw in another person, yikes! Obviously these 2 women know each other very well to be able to produce not 1, but 2 novels and a fabulous blog, that is a absolute t

I'd read I'll Have Who She's Having a while back, and just reread it again. Have to say, this book does not disappoint! Truly enjoyed the writing from different characters' perspectives ... found it very easy to follow, and rather hilarious at times to see the same situation from all the participants' points of view! I'll Have Who She's Having by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke is a great poolside or beach read - it's fun, easy and enjoyable book that's sure to make you laugh (perhaps, at yourself ...more

This was one of the better chick-lit books I've recently read. It was another book club pick. It's very, very funny. I could often relate to both the main characters...which isn't exactly a good thing to admit. It was a fun, amusing escape of a read. Tons of grammatical errors in it though which drove me batty.

Sweet, quirky little book about sisters (both gorgeous) who seem unhappy in their skin. Funny, quick read. Yes, I recommend as a 'cleansing' book (after you've read a couple of really deep books, this is what you need :)

Good book, light summer type reading...but that's not a bad thing in my opinion! I can't wait to read The D Word!

I'll Have Who She's Having should have been an easy and fun read about two sisters who think the grass is greener and find out otherwise, and it was in some parts. But overall, this book made me a little sad. I had strong reactions to the main characters and in the end, I didn't feel like either of them was really going to be happy.

Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke explore questions of happiness - what is it and what does it mean for women in the modern age. Even if they didn't intend for readers to

I’ll Have Who She’s Having by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke is fun, fast-moving read about two sisters who are struggling to find happiness—but looking in all the wrong places.

One is single and the other married, but the big thing they have in common is that neither is feeling particularly fulfilled; their searches lead them both to Tim, a hunky volleyball coach in whom they both see salvation.

As Scooby Doo would say, “Ruh roh!”

I really, truly enjoyed this book. The story is told from several pers

I was a little put off at the beginning of this book and didn't know if I wanted to continue reading it. The main reason for this was that I hated both Kelly and Kate's characters. I felt like they were both stuck up snobs who only cared about their appearance and "landing a man". They were so materialistic and judgmental of other people that it made me sick.

But, I kept reading as I was interested in what was going to happen and whether Kelly would cheat on her husband or not. In the end, I was

I believe this is my first time reading chicklit raw--no drama or sincere romance like some books as "Gossip Girl" (YA). Maybe since I rarely watch chicklit flicks, it was a hard read for me. Some parts were comical and dear to heart (over 30, still unmarried and no kids). If you are a down-hard chicklit, you might enjoy it.

Love to interview the authors to explain "chicklit" philosophy to me.

This book was super fun! Maybe I can relate because I have a sister, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Well written. Great story. I definitely recommend this one & can't wait to read the other book by the authors!
