Julie Mills is heartbroken when her rock star wannabe boyfriend Ronny dumps her. With encouragement from her best friend Eve, Julie decides to post an online ad to attract a date. After a few too many sips of wine, Julie posts an ad entitled: “Easy Lady Requests Guy with Two Socks”.
Easy Lady meets Dan the Man at an Italian restaurant. It is far from the night Julie expects, and not just because it involves an eye patch and an argyle sock. When Ronny comes back from the road a ‘changed man', Julie must decide if she wants the man she says she loves, or the man she just might.
I expected the chick lit formula, but this "romantic comedy" was generally tedious. The ending was predictable from the first hour and it needed more twists and turns--if the relationships were going to work out, at least have the characters go through some serious struggles, not superficial hocus pocus. I hope that Ms. Eby will develop her characters a bit more in her next novel--she did a good job with the audio, however.
