    I bought this book directly from the author when she was selling copies at our gym When I asked her to give me a quick description of her book, she said it was a beach book, which isn t really my taste In trying to be supportive of other local writers, I bought a copy and was happy to try it on for size The book ended up being better than I anticipated, although, as I thought, it wasn t really my taste in subject matter I thought there was great use of vocabulary throughout the book and the sent [...]

    I was in the mood for something light, entertaining, and different from the heavy novels I ve been reading Although I m put off by the notion of chick lit , this book was great fun It s humorous, smoothly written, with characters who are fleshed out but are not suffering from life ruining events perhaps you know what I mean Passananti delivers a good story, with enough tension to make me turn pages quickly, and a satisfying ending Recommended as a great beach or airplane read, and I do think tha [...]

  18. Tracy Lundy-Munn says:
    This was my first book by Mari Passananti and overall it was pretty solid The storyline was great and well written The ending of the book could have been better just stopped In my opinion the ending needed an epilogue or at least another chapter rounding out the storyline The characters were great and well developed All in all a pretty great book and I definitely look forward to books by Mari

  19. Cory Hansen says:
    I could not find this book on I had to manually add this book I wasn t quite sure about this, since I didn t find any reviews As you can see it took me one day to read it It was GREAT I loved the story, it is a romance, with some suspense in it, it kept my attention and I loved the main character, Zoe She had it bad for a man that admired her from across the street in another office She fell hard, but knew something was a miss Her best friend Angela and Kevin, are great too.

  20. Laura says:
    I can usually tell by the cover and title if I m going to like a book With this one, not so much The title and cover didn t appeal to me, but when I read the preview provided by Pixel of Ink, I thought I would give it a try I was NOT disappointed This book had me hooked from the very beginning and I read it in one day I would definitely recommend it

  21. Marie says:
    I really liked this book Kinda girlish of course and would make a great chick flick but I really liked the book The writing kept me interested, the story was a great lay in your PJ s and read story and I really liked the twists and turns.

  22. Pam says:
    Cute book, well written and it kept my interest It was a cross between The Devil Wears Prada and 50 Shades of Gray I liked the NYC social scene and the romance was fun without being too graphic Look forward to her next book.

  23. Natalie says:
    This was a pretty inexpensive kindle book under 5 , and for what I paid it was a decent read It is an easy summer beach book, but definitely not for teen readers I got caught up in the characters and peeked ahead because I became so worried about them

  24. Loralee says:
    Cute Got a bit dodgy in the middle and had a really strange twist in the end, but definitely a fun, easy, read For fans of Sex and the City or How I Met Your Mothery of those sit commy shows about thirty something s living working, and dating in a big city.

  25. Leah says:

  27. Yvonne says:
    Great book Surprising ending but a great read A story about a woman who realizes that standing on her own and not always relying on a man is a good thing
