Michelle wants a happily ever after, house in the suburbs complete with white picket fence, kids, and adoring husband. After getting dumped via group “reply all” email she decides to just date around. CJ seems like the perfect guy, except he’s seen her at her worst. And he is anti-commitment. He thinks Michelle is as jaded about marriage as he is, because she has a part time second job as a honeypot for a local PI. Once they start hooking up, though, things change for both of them.
What I liked: Michelle, for the most part. And I loved her friendships with Jan and Sammi. I liked CJ sometimes – it took a while. The book was entertaining, though.
What I didn’t like: It took a LONG time to like CJ. He just didn’t resonate with me in the beginning. But what really bugged me was the ending. Was what he did sweet and romantic and thoughtful? Definitely. But the instantaneous 180 in attitude from Michelle left me scratching my head. Give him a chance? Sure. But for them to go from sleeping together a couple times, to barely speaking, right to declarations of love was off-putting. I could easily see it happening in the future but the timeline here was rushed.
Overall: A funny, entertaining book worth reading. I enjoyed it but didn’t love it.
