What a refreshing voice in the chick lit genre!! I loved this book. It was such a quick read, (I finished it in a few short hours). The trials that the main character Madeline went through had me going though a multitude of emotions for her and with her. I felt myself breathe a sigh of relief when she finally got her revenge, and in a justifiable way. This is a triumph for anyone who ever felt that they had been wronged by the opposite sex. Highly recommended to anyone in the mood for revenge and lots of laughs!

I got this book as an ARC copy to review for sites and this is the first time that I've read this author. I LOVED this book! It's a great chick lit book and it's very amusing. I would recommend it!

Madeline Piatro is on a mission. She is through with being used. Instead of crying over losing the man she thought was the love of her life, but turned out to be using her for her phenomenal business idea--she wants more. NO, she wants to get even.
Madeline hires a loveable mob hit man with a penchant for broken bones and warm chocolate chip cookies. But this murder business is a lot harder than it looks.

This book did not easily retain my attention. However, after I read a few pages, it got better. There was some humor and the ending was good.

This was a very cute book. It is an easy read and only took me about 2 days to read. It ended kind of abruptly but overall if was a fun read.
