A chick lit book that didn't hit all the notes for me. The concept of girl meets boss' son and falls head over heals was great and unique and different, but the character that exudes negativity just didn't do it for me. All of the characters were funny and entertaining - they had qualities that weren't appealing either but it wasn't pure debbie downer.
Chick lit is not normally the genre that I aim for but I had read a few heavy books and I was in the mood for a lighter story. This book was perfect. I am single and 29 and I just moved from Minneapolis to Chicago a few months ago. As a former Minnesotan, I especially appreciated the references to weather, restaurants, and neighborhoods. The author was right on- she obviously lives in the area.
The main character struggles through many situations that I have found myself in over the years. She tries online dating, has weight issues (fueled by an addiction to Cinnabon), sleeps with a new boyfriend on the first date, has a dumpy apartment, has jealousy issues when both her sister and ex boyfriend get married on the same day and the list goes on. I felt her pain. I laughed with her and sometimes at the situations she found herself in. The situations are bold and honest.
As other reviewers stated, the ending was a let down, and although it wouldn't be the ending that I'd pick it is a very believable option. I sent out a mass e-mail to my Minneapolis friends urging them to read this book when they are in the mood for a fast, brainless, fun book. I loved it!
I thought this book was hilarious! I laughed out loud for much of the book and couldn't put it down. The only disappointment was the ending.
