Slightly Engaged
Author: Wendy Markham
There are a lot of things worse than being Slightly Engaged... being entirely broke, completely alone and wholly perplexed. It's been a year and a half since Tracey and Jack moved in together, and everything's totally perfect -- well, okay, almost perfect. There's still Tracey's mom, who says they're "living in sin,"...  more »

I enjoyed the other books in this series, but I could not finish this one. Perhaps I was just in the wrong mood at the time, but I found Tracey to supremely annoying in this outing, hitting the same whiney note throughout the first third of the book (which was as far as I got...)

Nice quick read, wanted to slap Tracey upside the head a few times but overall enjoyable!

Like some other readers noted, this book had me wanting to slap Tracey for most of the story. She was so obnoxious and annoying, I mostly skimmed the book to get to the fourth book. If I hadn't already had the fourth book here, I probably would have just given up. I get the female fantasy of wanting a man to ask you to marry him, give you a ring, etc. But I don't get a woman just sitting back and waiting for life to be delivered to her. It was hard to like or relate to a character who was so unwilling to take charge of any part of her own life.

I found this book to be very annoying! It took everything I had to finish it. I loved the first two books in this series, but the main character got on my nerves because she kept crying about when she would get engaged.

A girl-waiting-for-boy-to-propose story, although a little dull and predictable on plot. The writing is sometimes witty, and the heroine, although girl-next-door, sometimes verges on annoyingly shallow instead of endearing. Entertaining main character, but very flat and unimaginative development of her foil, the boyfriend.

Although I loved the first 2 books in the series I was not a huge fan of this one. I found the main character to be whiney and very annoying. Also a few of the characters that I enjoyed from pervious books barely make an appearance here. I will probably read the next one but it is not high on my TBR list.

Another great book by Wendy Markham. I just couldn't put the book down. I love the character Tracey and all her adventures. It was great to see her go crazy over being egaged and the things that happened while waiting for it.
