Erika Jayne didn't make it this far by holding back. Now, in her first-ever memoir, the fan favorite star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills bares her heart, mind, and soul. In Pretty Mess, Erika spills on every aspect of her life: from her rise to fame as a daring and fiery pop/dance performer and singer; to her decision to accept a role on reality television; to the ups and downs of family life (including her marriage to famed lawyer Tom Girardi, 33 years her senior). There's much more to Erika Jayne than fans see on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Erica is my favorite character on the housewives, she’s gritty, she’s real, and although she doesn’t show it often has a really soft heart. This book is a little insight to the tight lipped in your face character. Erica your next book needs to be a little how you get your groove back as a mature women to inspire the masses.

Milly's mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school. But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother's trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.

Christie is the all American beauty so who wouldn't want to get her advice on health and beauty secrets. She covers it all! While some might say she wrote this book simply because she has a new skincare line coming out this is NOT the case. While she does mention her line she dishes on so many of her favorite products that have nothing to do with her. It's an easy listen and you feel like you're gossiping with a friend getting makeup, hair, skin and nutrition tips from your best "supermodel" friend. I listened to this in one day and am going to listen again!! I found myself writing down several of her suggestions and am excited to try them. She's so sweet and genuine, I feel like this would be a good motivational book to give a friend who feels down. Loved it!!!

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.
