Overall, the book reads as though it has been written by a teenager. I found myself losing patience with it and only finished it because it had been paid for. If it had been a free book, it would have been relegated to the "archive" long before the end.
Lots of opportunity for a bit of girly humour and general romantic fun. I could have even gotten over the many typos but alas, there were several elements that took the story in a completely different direction from the fun 'romantic comedy' it was supposed to be.
From the offset I got that the main character Rosie was into sex (and lots of it). I really didn't see why the author had to be so candid about Rosie's sexual exploits throughout the book. In fact I don't think I ever warmed to liked her character and her unwarranted arrogance. She was supposedly gorgeous but seriously, there are lots of gorgeous girls out there who aren't selfish sluts with no direction in life. Would it kill the author to give her some depth? Even if she started off as a horrible person, the character Rosie needed to grow through the book and from what I read, she didn't. Did she ever really find a life direction in the end btw? I don't think so!
Anyway, there were just too many little deviating, confusing story lines that ultimately sums up to be a story about finding love although I didn't get any romantic connection between her and her love interest, Alex, other than her private lust for him and a few conversations in which he doesn't seem to be interested in her sexually.
What a short, weird book with an abrupt 'The End'.
It took me about two hours to read the entire story which, although a little predictable, I found fun and un-put-down-able. Without giving too much away I'm happy that Rosie - the annoying main character - was given a dose of reality before the happy conclusion of the story.
For what I paid, I'm happy and would read another book by this author - and hopefully there wouldn't be so many typos again! At least now I've been reminded never to rely on a computer for spell-checking!
Storyline implausible (no, there really is no *one* woman every man wants to shag), characters dull and one dimensional, plot predictable (even though entirely unrealistic) and no development of the story.
Only plus point is that it was so basic I managed to read it over two nights, it was more like a magazine short story than a book.
Not only that, the main character is horrible, the plot unlikely to the extreme, the dialogue implausible and the idea of this mythical woman who everybody wants to have sex with because she is SO DAMN GORGEOUS is just laughable. especially when she is portrayed as a complete cow!
The ending is silly and happens out of nowhere, although given the amateurishness of the book, it was bound to end in the way it did. Cue 'generic chick-lit ending'. I usually love this type of book but nu-huh. Avoid this unless you want to spend an inordinate amount of time correcting the mistakes in your head...

This book was predictable and the main character was a spoiled brat. It was also riddled with errors and didn't flow properly. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Victoria Jeffrey
Rather predictable storyline but was a quick read, except for the many typos in the book which slowed it down a little at times. Read morePublished on 14 Jan. 2014 by R Webb
Fab storyline, it keeps you guessing all the way through and still didn't guess the ending. Fab bit of writting.Published on 11 July 2013 by Amazon Customer
I cannot believe the number of spelling errors and bad grammar in this book. It's an utter joke. Did nobody proof read it before publication? Read morePublished on 26 Jun. 2013 by Sarah Henshaw

A good read about characters that I have never met in real life. It almost sounds unbelievable to anyone who does not need revenge date for anybody.Published on 26 May 2013 by Diana
