Publisher's Summary

"I don't love you anymore."

For Charlotte Crawford, the worst part about being dumped after 20 years of marriage is that her husband, Jack, doesn't want another woman; he just doesn't want her.

Forty-two and clueless, Charlotte is a fish out of water in a dating pool teeming with losers. Just when she thinks she's finally put her failed marriage behind her, it comes back to bite her in the ass...hard. Without warning, Charlotte finds herself staring down the barrel of a future she wouldn't (she would totally) wish on her worst enemy.

Engaging, fearless, and relentlessly funny, Pretty Much Screwed is a story of love, loss, friendship, forgiveness, turtledoves, taxidermy, and one hilariously ill-placed tick.

    "Totally relatable plot line!"

    I feel most women could relate to this plot line. I laughed out loud several times! Used the "f" word a few times throughout so not a good one to listen to at the office :(

    Story
    "The mispronunciations drove me crazy!"

    I had so many issues with this book, from the unlikeable main character, to the sudden choppy time jumps to the narration. The mispronunciation of fidelity and divorcée among others were unacceptable at this level.

    "Meh"

    Nothing exceptional. I figured out a main plot point in the first few chapters but hoped I was wrong. Wasn't. Characters aren't really exceptional

    Story
    "Charlotte makes you want to pull your hair out"

    There were conversations in the book that I found myself relating to and moments that I did enjoy the story line but Charlotte made so many bad decisions that I found myself not wanting to finish the book because I was afraid of what she would do next.

    If there is a guy like Jesse in real-life, please send him my way.

    Story
    "Chick Lit for the 40-something"
    If you could sum up Pretty Much Screwed in three words, what would they be?

    Pass the wine!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'd add more twists that aren't predictable - I predicted the entire outcome of this book from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book for those that have had to endure the dreaded re-entry of the dating world. I laughed and I cried in this book!

    Story
    "it was just ok"

    I felt that the book at times was rushed. Some parts of the book were day to day then all of the sudden a few weeks went by. The storyline and characters didn't develop the way that I felt they should. I ended up not really caring about the main character. Not very likable.

    Story
    "Heroine you Hate to Love"
    What did you love best about Pretty Much Screwed?

    I actually really loved the story line, although I wouldn't necessarily say it is something that I could picture happening in real life.


    If you could take any character from Pretty Much Screwed out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would love for Jessie to make me dinner. He sounds like such an amazing guy. However, he sounded too perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I kept finding myself screaming at my radio because I was so irritated with Charlotte. I really felt like she kept wanting to play the victim, even though I thought she was wrong most of the time. I recounted some of this to my fiance (who doesn't care about my books) and he honestly thought I was talking about someone real- I got that into being frustrated with Charlotte.

    Story
    "I enjoyed it. Most of the time"

    I really liked this book but some parts drag a little. The audio voice was good so that kept me in it and most of the time I had a great time listening to it. I will recommend it to my friends saying the same things I have written here. Just bare with the parts that are slow.

    Story
    "Never look back...or go back"
    Would you listen to Pretty Much Screwed again? Why?

    No. I think it is a one time through type of book. It's pretty predictable but a cute story.


    What other book might you compare Pretty Much Screwed to and why?

    It's the typical divorcee has trouble letting go of a past life, no matter how much better the option in front of her is.


    What three words best describe Tanya Eby’s voice?

    Not a Frenchman


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was cute...no extreme reaction


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was fine for the main 2 women, Charlotte and Lizzie but Katie and a couple of the others were odd.
