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.
