Blurb
I’m a good girl. I work hard, follow the rules, and only want a future with Mr. Right, complete with a white picket fence, 1.5 children and a dog.
What do I have instead? A “Dear Jane” email from my ex, who CCd it to my best friends and their fiancés. My friends realizing that I’ve never had an orgasm is the cherry on the train-wreck cake of my love life.
So my new plan? Find a nice guy who can give me an orgasm before my best friend’s wedding.
Enter CJ. Not only is he tall, rich and scorching hot, but he’s super smart. He makes me tingle in places I’ve never tingled before. He checks all my boxes but one- commitment. He thinks that’s what you do when you run out of women, which in his universe is NEVER.
But he wants me and won’t take no for an answer. He pops up as best man at my friend’s wedding, at my office, in my home. He’s sending me flowers, chocolates, coffee beans, you name it. Plus he kisses like he invented theaction. It’s like he knows all my weaknesses and is launching a siege.
Then my life implodes, and I learn that being good is overrated. Can the wild player handle this former good girl?

My review:

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.
