Publisher's Summary

Lucy is a talented television producer with a husband, three kids, and a big-time crush on a game show host. Her best friend Jess is a divorced suburban mom with a sexy French ex-husband in her bed and a reality show "bachelor" named Boulder on her couch. Jess and Lucy's friendship flourishes through bake sales, Botox parties, and the transition from itty-bitty bikinis to "Kindest Cut" one-piece suits. Whether cooking up fancy dinner parties or navigating sixth-grade sex-ed class, these funny, delightful women know that their friendship will remain the one true thing they can count on. Well, that and a good push-up bra, of course. And their bond withstands everything, until Lucy's husband appears to be flirting with Jess.

enjoyed it very much!

First off I really loved Susan Denaker's performance it in. If you haven't heard her in "Mine are Spectacular" which is also by these authors then go buy that next.

It wasn't a deep story but it was entertaining to me. It held my attention and there were times that I did chuckle out loud.

If you need a book to entertain you while you are driving to work, walking the dogs or just doing housework, get this book. You will enjoy it.

Great!!!

Another great Chick Lit! I love the stories featuring rich folks with their attitudes and their New York penthouses, Palm Beach Mansions and Manolo Blanics not to mention the lifestyle they take for granted, and yet we have a main character that seems to recognize the illusion. Botox does not disappoint!

Very cute - light reading

I enjoyed listening to this book - I ended up liking the characters especially the main character, who was more down-to-earth than some of the secondary characters. It seems that whenever a story is set in NYC, I have to suspend fiscal reality as the books inevitably mention $500 Monolo shoes, etc, and everyone seems to be rich and famous; this book is no exception. The main character is a little more realistic, but just barely - she still manages to get an expensive gift from Tiffany's and moves in elite circles, but she does seem to recognize the extravagances. The book isn't "deep", but neither is it too shallow - it has enough substance that you can enjoy the light reading without it all seeming like a bit a fluff. It won't teach you any life lessons, but it will keep you entertained!

boring

I took me ages to finish this book. I didn't like the characters, they stay flat throughout the story which is contrived and boring.
Can't recommend this one.

Painful!

Humor is forced and not at all funny. Made my 2 hour daily commute longer and I found myself rolling my eyes at every other line. Blah!!!

terrible!

I could barely get through this book and I wanted to hurt myself the entire time. It is so cheesy and forced and not in a fun, chick-lit way. It seemed like the author was writing about what she thinks hip, fun people would be like, rather than writing a book with authentic characters and experiences. If I could return this book or delete it from audible.com, I would in a heartbeat.
