I loved this book; it's a perfect example of what chick lit should be. It was a light, funny read. The characters were great, and although the story line was improbable, it was so fun that I didn't really care.

I loved this book. It is totally unrealistic and if it happened in the real world I am sure things would go very differently, but it was a great story. Genie, the main character, has been dating her boyfriend Hugh for over 4 years. Being in her mid-thirties she has been waiting for him to pop the question for a while. Hugh has just wrote a NY Times bestseller with a very romantic plot line. While on his book tour he does a TV interview. As Genie is watching the interview, the interviewer asks Hugh about his own love life and this prompts him to give the most romantic on-air proposal ever. When Genie finally gets a hold of Hugh on the phone he explains that the proposal was not meant for her!

Genie is flabbergasted and everyone they know thinks the proposal was meant for her. So following the advice of her best friend, Genie goes alonng with it. Hugh is over in England continuing his book tour, so he is not there to dispute it.

Genie plays the role of bride-to-be with her family, friend, and co-workers. She lets them start planning showers and the actual wedding. She even goes as far as buying a fake engagement ring. She feels like this is all Hugh's fault anyway, so let him explain the mistake to everyone. It all makes for an entertaining story.

I brought this book with me on a recent camping trip and as the rain pelted the tent I was glad I did. I enjoyed reading it. The plot was well developed, the characters were funny and in the end everyone got what they deserved. I look forward to reading another books by this author. It was a nice quick easy read that kept you guessing until the very end. One word: Enjoyable.

By reading the cover I thought this book was going to be a great read. The book was cute but I could not get into it. I just kept waiting for it to get better and more believable but it never did.

Great book! I was hooked right from the beginning, and stayed up late the next night to finish it! Funny, sweet and engaging characters. :)

This was a really fun book. Like some of the others have said, the plot is very unrealistic, but who cares? It made me laugh. The book never got too serious, and I enjoyed Genie's style of revenge.

Fun little read about a woman who (finally) does not measure up to glamour magazines' standards of beauty, but is a beauty nonetheless.

I've read most of Sarah Strohmeyer's books, and while I thought the Bubbles books were mildly entertaining, I have to say that I have loved both this book and "The Cinderella Pact." I found the characters to be engaging and easy to identify with, and the stories themselves were engrossing. I hope the author continues on this literary path, because I am loving each on these books more and more!
