Review: This was maybe the worst book I've ever read. I usually enjoy mindless chick lit, but this wasn't even enjoyable. The characters are horrific, completely selfish people with no redeeming value, and when the "bad guy" in the book points that out, I was unable to disagree with him. I found nothing about the plot charming or interesting, and it in no way made me envious of this supposed lifestyle.
I picked this up for a vacation beach read, and I'm glad I only spent $1 on it. Avoid at all co... Read more
Review: This book was something I could relate to being in a relationship for the first time that turned serious fast.

The characters in the book were very enlightening and they all had great qualities ... Read more

Her little hissy-fit when poor Michael, who had been out of circulation for 20 years, hesitated about telling her mother that they were sleeping together after their fi... Read more
Review: This book made me cry all the way through. It manages to fit an awful lot in to one book. I found the emotional rollercoaster of a read left me feeling withdrawn and drained by the end. The style of writing was fine at the beginning, however, I was completely confused at the end, I didn’t know who was telling what. I couldn’t recommend this book to just anyone as it was hard on the tear ducts, a certain amount of sensitivity is definitely required! Read more
