Welcome to another rant about Things People Don’t Want to Talk About.

I debated whether or not to write a review for this book. A lot of people loved it, and it’s increasingly difficult for me to find the energy to point out all the things that almost no one else is, especially with an author whose other works I’ve enjoyed.

Plus, I can readily admit that I’m hyper-focused on feminism, and that I bring up topics like sexism, racism, bigotry, and rape culture in a lot of my reviews. I realize that
UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

OH, how I loved this book!! It's fun, sassy, romantic, sexy - and I do mean sexy - truly, a fabulous story! The dialog is so well written, so witty, and the entire book is filled with the kind of dry humor that has you giggling throughout. The sexual chemistry between Lacey and Monroe is off the charts, and they make a perfect couple in their odd mix of cynicism and optimism! In fact, if "opticism" were a word in the dictionary, it'd be accompanied by a picture of Lacey and Monroe!

This book has been recommended to me a number of times and I had very high expectations...too high, I think. I've read one previous title by Molly Harper, My Bluegrass Baby and really enjoyed it. But found And One Last Thing ... just okay.

So, sorry everyone, this just didn't do it for me. Here are a few of my problems.

This is more chick-lit than contemporary romance. I was hoping the ratio of romance to chick-lit would be greater, as I don't usually enjoy chick-lit. The hero only makes

I hardly ever read romances - this one was for a challenge - I tend to find them repetitive and clichéd, just not my particular cup of tea:) This one however was great! It was sweet and funny and really entertaining and I read it in one afternoon!
And One Last Thing ... is full of quirky characters doing outrageous things but all of them so charming you forgive them. The two main characters, Monroe and Lacey develop a delightful relationship with some hilarious dialogue. Then there is Lacey's bro

Warning: I don't personally consider anything in this review a spoiler.
But I will be talking about some of the things that happened, and why they bothered me.

I have a very love/hate relationship with chick-lit.
I love the fluffiness and humor.
I hate the resolution at the end.
And One Last Thing... was no exception. I was having the time of my life for the first 90% of the book. I honestly did not want to put it down. It was like bubblegum crack!
The last 10%
4 Stars!! Just plain old fun!!

I love Molly Harper's humor, but what made this book for me was the voice that Amanda Ronconi gave to Lacey and her rambling thoughts! She was perfect for the dry sense of humor that was conveyed in the book, and nailed all the characters perfectly.

This book is about Lacey's journey of self discovery after finding her husband has been having a long standing affair with his secretary. She finds her revenge when she sends out a scathing newsletter that lands her in a

I can't fault this book in any way. It's the story of a woman who exacts her revenge on her adulterous husband by outing him in his monthly business newsletter.
It's a laugh out loud funny story which gradually morphs into a more serious story about holding onto bitterness and finding love.
It's a great story, cleverly written.

"It's that time of the month again . . .

As we head into those dog days of July, Mike would like to thank those who helped him get the toys he needs to enjoy his summer.
Thanks to you, he bought a new bass boat, which we don't need; a condo in Florida, where we don't spend any time; and a $2,000 set of golf clubs . . . which he has been using as an alibi to cover the fact that he has been remorselessly banging his secretary, Beebee, for the last six months."

If you've been tracking my status updates, you already know how much I was loving this book! And, not just for the obvious reasons of great writing and laugh-out-loud humor; I also loved it for the way it made me feel when a woman is scorned; I wanted to fight right along with her! (Not to mention how I felt when an incredibly sexy, "tall-drink-of-water", hero was about to enter my, (I mean,) THE heroine's life!)

★★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Loved this book, the second I’ve ‘read’ by this author, and Amanda Ronconi does a great job of reading it. It made me laugh out loud and smile multiple times. The genre is chick-lit with a splash of contemporary romance thrown in. Maybe it was just me, but sometimes (probably when she gets tired – or perhaps when I do) Ms. Ronconi gets that tone in her voice. I can’t think best how to describe it other than to say it is a tiny bit like Dana Carvey doing ...more

This is one of those books that just makes you happy. This is actually more chick-lit than contemporary romance but I'm not complaining. This is just a perfect read for me.

Molly Harper wrote a great lead character in Lacey. She's funny, smart and a very relatable. You can't help but root for her. There is plenty of romance in this book but as I've said, this is more of Lacey story -- her heartbreak, her revenge against her cheating ex, and her getting over that hurt with the help of her shark o
This was an excellent story by Molly Harper. There was lots of good emotion from the characters, poignant moments, and plenty of humor. Perhaps the best part? The ending was happy, but didn't send me into a diabetic-coma from sickeningly sweet glucose levels! :) ...more

"Get up, you giant cliché," I said, my voice stern, cold. "Get up. Get your ass out of this shower and stop re-enacting scenes from every Lifetime movie ever made. Get up. Get up. Get up!"

Again, I would like thank the amazeballs Inge for recommending this little gem. It's a pick-me-up, a lady-power-roaring babe that is quick to read, easy to laugh with and a great comfort when you're destroying a tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

This one was just okay for me. Why? Well, I thought Lacey was in her own head too much. I've never been one for a continuous blah of euphemisms and I thought this book has this in spades. Okay, so I'm dating myself, but I was never a fan of Mary Hartman or the Airplane movies and I thought this book rode this line. She tried to make everything a joke and sometimes you lose depth when you do this.

Crazy fun! I don't remember the last time I've laughed so much and enjoyed a day of reading like today. I feel like I've had my own personal divorce therapy twenty-five years too late!! All cheating husbands deserve a little of Lacey's "special revenge!"

In my opinion the book is very romantic; however, it doesn't give readers a front row seat to many sexual scenes. This may disappoint many readers but it worked fine for me. Ms. Harper's skills in writing unbelievably witty and sharp dialogue ast

Lacey Terwilliger's life is about to change in a big way when she's sent flowers from her husband that says, "To my BumbleBee, Happy Anniversary, With all my love, The Stinger." Lacey's accountant husband Mike doesn't call her by a cutesy nickname, and definitely not BumbleBee. Shock fills Lacey's entire body because Mike's receptionist is named BeeBee Baumgardner. These flowers were sent to her by accident. And then it hits her like a ton of bricks. Mike is cheating on her with his bimbo recept ...more
Predictable contemporary romance - Way overpriced

This was an "ok" read. I really liked the idea of the scorned wife getting revenge. There were some spells during this read that were slow, but I still managed to finish it. It was nothing exceptional overall, but if you are looking for a light, easy romantic read this would do the trick. If this book would have had an Epilogue I think I would have rated it higher. My biggest complaint is the price. The kindle book cost $9.99 which is insane. I do

This is one of those books where I've got a smile on my face at the end. Lacey's cahracter grew so much during the book! It was amazing to see her go from angry and revenge-seeking to happy and in a healthy new relationship. I was so proud of her for not stooping to Beebee's crap level at the salon towards the end (I probably would have LOL).

If you've ever been cheated on, or know someone who has, then this is a must read. You'll laugh until you have tears and it will make you feel not so bad fo

I would say that Molly Harper is a friend-defining author. She writes the types of books that you proudly pass along to friends and if they hand them back to you after reading and say, “I just didn’t get it” or “I didn’t find her all that funny” then they’re ex-communicated. Cut-off and cut adrift! Molly Harper just inspires that kind of loyalty and passion in her readers... and with good cause!

Bumping it up because I laughed quite a bit. Still it was a little long in places and some of the conflict was drawn out. It was cute and definitely chick-lit. I wish she got more female friends as I really liked their interactions.

I read one book by this author a couple years ago and wasn’t impressed. It was a romance involving werewolves in Alaska. Unlike that book, this one doesn’t have any paranormal creatures and doesn’t take place in any exotic locale. It’s a pure chic-lit in the middle of America. And it was wonderful, very heart-warming.
The heroine, Lacey, is a thirty-year-old stay-home housewife. By accident – a drunken florist delivers flowers to the wrong address – she learns that her husband cheats on her with

This was such a fun book. I love Molly Harper's writing style - her main characters are full of spunk and sarcastic humour. Her side characters are so real, picking up such crazy idiosyncrasies that it just makes the book so much more fun and real. (Those idiosyncrasies may be exaggerated, but you can't tell me you don't see them every day in life!)

I try to avoid chick-lit, but she is one author I now know I can trust to pull together a fun book without making the heroine a complete basket-case.

This was an OK contemporary romance but not up Molly Harper's usual style IMO. Just ok. I usually like Amanda Ronconi as a narrator but in this one her voice was kind of grating.

I love Ms. Harper's "Nice Girls Don't" books. Her characters are fresh and funny with the paranormal twist thrown in to make them "keepers" for me. When I heard she was writing a contemporary I was thrilled. And One Last Thing... did not disappoint! I was drawn in from the first page and loved every minute I spent reading this book.

The main characters were endearing and the kind of folks I'd love to hang out with in real life. Lacey Terwilliger is witty and funny, even in the face of the betraya
This was a great read. Typical Molly Harper except there are no supernatural people in this story (I think every other book I've read by her has had supernaturals in it).

Lacey was married to a man named Mike who basically took her for granted and cheated on her. When she left him with a bang everyone basically made her life hell so she escapes up to her cabin in the woods. While up there she meets Monroe. He's a writer and very surly.
