The Shameful Diary of a Hopeless Romantic was edited and republished on 04/14/12.
Maggie is a dreamer with lots of goals to achieve on her 'before 30' list. She wants to fall in love, write a book, and lose weight. Only nothing seems to go as planned. She finds herself: signed up for a marathon when she can't run, with a book deal without a book, and surrounded by two hunks, Ben and Blake, neither of whom seem to know she is a woman. What's a girl to do when she's a hopeless romantic? Write about it of course.
This is Book One in the series The Shameful Diary of a Hopeless Romantic.
The Shameful Diary of a Hopeless Romantic, Book Two will be out Summer 2012.
This is a really fun quirky read. I liked Maggie from the start, even if she is a bit dim at times. The misunderstanding about the "partner" was a low moment for her mentally. Other than that major mindslip, I found her delightful, if not a touch self absorbed.
I was laughing out loud several times and giggling more often than not. The relationships are sweet and the supporting characters interesting and engaging. I loved they whole dynamic Maggie has with all her friends. I especially love he playfulness she has with Blake. They are a delight to read when together.
The whole book is Maggie's POV, which isn't bad, just very one sided. You have to guess at what others are thinking unless they say something outright.
I was thoroughly enjoying my reading/listening experience and then BAM, it ended!! Out of the blue total cold ending, no real resolutions of HEA!!!! WTF!! I feel so cheated. Now I have to decide if I spend another credit to get the rest of the story!! Oh, guess what, there is a book out there that combines both parts. Wish I knew that before I bought this!!
I would have ranked this higher if it had not left me short. It was a entertaining read up until the ending cutting the book short! I am really not happy about having to spend more to get the last third of the book.
