Cute chick-lit book, a fast and fun read. Not exactly brain-enhancing stuff here, but with a bra on the cover, I think you knew that already. *wink*
I found this in a book shop and the cover looked cute. I was SO glad I had run into it! I now LOVE all of Michelle Cunnah's books. Soon she will be as well known as Marian Keyes and Jane Green. I just wish she'd write more books cause they are all great!
Very enjoyable story with very likable characters. Emma is a woman you can easily relate to as she deals with the daily life issues of her job, love and friends. After she picks herself up from the indignity of being tossed aside by her bastard of a boyfriend, she relies on her friends to take her in and help her cope with the betrayal not only in her love life but also on the job as she is denied an opportunity she is perfect for. Add into the mix that her father is one of the top plastic surgeons in the area, Emma is continuously reminded of everytime she looks in the mirror and sees her completely inadequate 32AA chest.
Join Emma as she navigates through her life looking to fill her days (and hopefully a bikini) with the happiness she longs for.
I am always really drawn to brightly colored books (sad but true) and this bright pink book with the picture of the bra on it instantly drew my attention and upon closer inspection I knew I would have to read it.
Emma Taylor is a secretary for an advertising company where she does a lot of work to advance her career, hoping above all hopes that she will someday advance to the job beyond her menial one. She also is dating her boss, whom he hopes to someday convince that she is worth marrying. I know, this plot has been done before, but this book is worth reading because it has a twist. You see Emma has small breasts!! Instead of being weight loss obsessed, she is obsessed with gaining weight, which actually to me seemed like a fresh new insight in the world of women obsessed with shedding those extra inches. Emma is also surrounded by a group of wonderful (and slightly flawed, which I like) friends who often times go to her for support.
In a plot that seems somewhat familiar, Emma's life goes on hiatus when she doesn't get promoted, looses her boyfriend, and gets kicked out of her house. Her friends give her all sorts of bad advice, which she wrongly follows, and she ends up living with her youthful nemesis Jack. In a strange twist of fate Jack turns out to be nicer and sexier than she had known in the past and they begin to form a strange bond. What is even better is that Jack fits in with her odd group of friends. Underlying the novel is Emma's sense of failure at her lack of physical stature (her Dad is a plastic surgeon which makes it even worse) and her lack of faith in herself as a human being. Her love of Robert Plant and her car make her seem more human and easy to relate to and you find yourself wishing that you could be friends with her as well.
Even though you've read this novel before, there is still a lot to recommend this book. The interesting sub-plots of Emma's friends help the book along nicely. Jack is a likeable character that makes you want to find a man like him, and even her ex-boyfriend is so annoying that you can hate him along with Emma. You can sympathize with Emma for her lack of breast size or her lack of self esteem, but either way you find yourself relating to her as a character. She sometimes makes a mess of her life but that's what makes her story so easily readable. Overall this book was a simple read with lots of good points to recommend it. While it did not change my life in any way, it still was an enjoyable way to pass the time.
A great quick light read. Just what I was looking for right now. It is packed with girly cliches reminescent of "Bridget Jones' Diary" although I enjoyed that better. I read it in one sitting so it definitely pulls you in.
For a book that is on a couple people's Wish List. I started it and gave up after a couple weeks. All I kept reading was "whine whine whine, poor me" from the main character. Unfortunately, many of us here that in every day life so I wasn't really looking forward to continue reading this book because it wasn't good enough to get into.
Cute chick-lit about a young woman who has some self-image issues to overcome. I love the characters - our heroine plus her cadre of good friends. And Jack is great. Fun read.
Fairly typical chick lit, but still enjoyable. Best part was the three best friends, who despite being totally different from each other, could overcome their differences and accept and love each other as they were.
Loved this book! This is the first book in a series...Call Waiting is the second one and it is very funny. I would recommend it for anyone that needs a good laugh.
Really Cute Chick Lit book. I really enjoyed this book. Read it in one day.
I am really tired of people writing and saying negative things about Michelle Cunnah's books. I really enjoyed both of her stories involving Emma; enough to want to re-read and save them for myself. It shows that not everybody has big boobs and people have more to them than just their bodies. I think Michelle Cunnah's books are the best chick lit I have ever read. If you like Emily Giffin, Jennifer Weiner, Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella, Cecelia Ahern and Marian Keyes then you WILL love Michelle Cunnah's books.
You do not need to be a 32AA, like me to enjoy this. I enjoy Jennifer Weiner's plus size novels so you can love this book too.
I really do hope Michell Cunnah writes more novels!!!!!
this was a funny funny book, definitely a good read.
This book was not quite what I was expecting, it was much better. I am approaching thirty (okay, I got 20 days to go) and I requested this book and "Pushing 30", to my surprise this book also deals with turning thirty a and long with the issue of having small breasts. With lovable characters that are lifelike and written in a unique style this book is sure to make you want to read just one more page.
Great story and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
loved this book! great beach read
This was a terrific, laugh out loud, feel good book. I couldn't put it down.
I really had a hard time getting started with this book. The main character spent so much time wallowing in self-pity that it was hard to digest. When she finally got her act together, there was a great story there, just took a while to find it.
Enjoyed this chick flick - light reading.
This book was hilarious with some laugh-out-loud maoments. It mad me a fan of Michelle Cunnah. Very good reading.
Cute, predictable but I ended the book with a smile on my face!
Great Great Great Book! I really loved the main character in this novel. I actually felt what she was feeling throughout her good times and bad times. This book made me want more, I had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait to read the second novel. Order this book!
Very cute chick lit! :) Made me laugh and was a cute, quick read!
Great light hearted book - not as silly as most chick-lit books
Fun chick-lit about a young woman who thinks she's lost everything when her snakey boyfriend hijacks her ideas and then dumps her, but finds she has a lot more going for her -- like good friends, loving family, and boobs that are just exactly the right size. (I'd have rated this one higher if either the author or her copy editor understood when to use "me" and when to use "I".)
Poor little Emma Taylor just wanted an engagement ring and a job promotion for her thirtieth birthday. What she got instead was the heave-ho from her gorgeous boss/boyfriend who leaves her for a more well-endowed woman!
Super cute book! Typical chick lit and a fast read. One of my favorites :)
This book was *so* good! I've found a new favorite author in Michelle Cunnah!
Great read! Michelle has a decent style of writing that I enjoy. Fun chick lit.
This was actually a good read. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Enjoy.
Very funny! I am small up top too so I found myself relating to her. Good book!
Emma Taylor wanted an engagement ring and a job promotion for her 30th birthday. What she got was the boot from her live-in boyfriend -and the indignity of continuing to have to work for him.
This book was OK. I would recommend it if you are desperate for something to read.
This is a cute chick-lit book. So naturally one I would pick up.
Great light romantic read.
I thought that this book was very good.
