I don't usually like chick lit. I didn't expect to really like this book - but I really did. I sat up late and read this book in one day. I've added several more books by this author to my WL. This is a really good book.
This is Christian chick-lit. Being annoyed with chick-lit that passes as literature, I thought this would be a welcome change. There is no sex, which really didn't bother me at all. Whenever I read sex scenes in regular chick-lit, I have to laugh. These authors are trying so hard to be Jackie Collins and - sorry, ladies - ain't gonna happen! Also, the fact that the main character, Ashley, was a lawyer and NOT in an underpaid job in the entertainment field was another welcome surprise. With that said, the story was so-so. There are sequels, ladies, but I didn't bother. After about 100 pages, I lost interest.
Initially the main character Ashley was a bit whiney and annoying, really beating a dead horse over her single status. However, I do remember what it was like to be pushing 30 and no man in sight, so I was probably annoying also.
She does get over it. The book has two lovely male characters, a quirky family, and assorted friends and associates who seem real enough to speak.
This was a great book! I loved it. I can't wait to read the other two in this series.

Deciding to adopt a new attitude, Ashley suddenly becomes the romantic interest of three men within a matter of days. While her heart enjoys turning the tables on the dating game, the rest of her previously predictable world is being turned upside down, is it more than Ashley can handle?
