"Obviously I'm not as cute and witty as I thought I was, since while I've been sitting around every weekend, he's been sleeping with half of Thailand. And then he found Someone Else. That someone not being me.
"I have been pathetic.
"But now I will date. I will become the queen of dating. I will forget all about him.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, it was definitely an easy read and fun to listen to. I laughed out loud at several places and found that I couldn't stop grinning while I was listening. The main character Jackie is 24 years old and works at Cupid as an editor for romance novels. She has just broken up with her boyfriend, Jeremy, after he goes to Thailand to find himself. New to Boston, she starts going to clubs with her old college friend and new roommate, starts to date again and really finds out what it is that she wants. Oh and all the while still having a thing for the so not worth it exboyfriend Jeremy. If you liked Sophie Kinsella's books, I think you would like this one too.
This book was better than Fishbowl. Almost fell off my seat laughing so hard. The characters were interesting and again the ending isn't what i expected. As it is an audio book some of the items (ie emails) don't come off as well as they would in print. The narrator could have done reading the email a little differently, it was the only irritating part of the book.

I probably listen to about 5 to 8 books a month and this is the first time I have given a review, because this book was so bad, that I felt I needed to state my feelings on this book. The main character in this book was so annoying and pathetic I had a difficult finishing it. I kept hoping it would get better but it never did.
