Publisher's Summary

Some lucky women meet the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. Some lucky women focus on a career and make their own happily ever after. And then some women wake up after 15 years of marriage and discover that their luck just ran out...right into the arms of another woman.

Jana Embers isn't one to sit back, though. The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she's thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband's truck. After that, she's not sure what she'll do. Maybe she'll adopt a cat.

Very quickly, Jana decides she doesn't need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don't Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.

Three years later, Jana has a New York Times best-seller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can't write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks....

Warning: Although there are many adult situations in this novel, if say...something crazy happened and a famous producer adapted this contemporary women's fiction into a movie, it would have a PG-13 rating. There are no erotic scenes, no graphic violence, and while there are a few allowed-on-TV curse words, there aren't a plethora of gratuitous foul words. Oh, and if you were looking for a cliffhanger, you won't find that here either. Some Lucky Woman includes all three parts of Jana's story. Please proceed at your own risk.

This should not be in the romance section

4 hours into this book and there is ABSOLUTELY NO romance....its more of a self-help/finding one's self book. A book about women being OK with themselves after the breakup of a marriage. I felt like the first 5 hours of this book could have been put into one paragraph.... I listen to romance books for the ROMANCE.... I don't know. I didn't hate it but then I couldn't figure out why I was wasting my time. I didn't like the narrator or the long drawn out self-realization story... I gave up after 5 hours and didn't finish... although I will say I had no problems falling asleep at night while listening so there is that.....

OK book, too predictable...

I kind of liked this book, but there were no surprises...too predictable. I must admit that I was glad for it to end so I could move on to a better book.

Narrator ruined this book.

The book seemed cute enough but the narrator sounds 70 and is supposed to be 35. Really took me out of the story.

Could not finish.

Maybe the kindle version will be better.
