it was ok
bookshelves: awful
Read from June 20 to 22, 2011

Pretty lame. Too forced. And the guy writing it was a guy trying to write from two women's perspectives. I never once felt like it was a woman speaking. Especially the whole sex in the office with a random woman thing- that is totally every man's fantasy. I respect the social implications. I wish he had actually written a good book about this subject. Unfortunately, none of the characters were remotely likable and the story was so contrived that I could picture him writing and thinking to himself, "How can I shock my target audience of middle aged book group women?" Totally lame.
