I liked Sam and felt so sorry for her, but to be honest about a quarter of the way in I wanted to shake some sense into the girl. I liked her, but her obsession with winning Jamie back had begun to grate a little on my nerves! However, although I was somewhat irritated, with the appearance of Ben her new man the story took a major upturn. The second half of the book was absolutely brilliant and I found myself smirking and laughing as Sam got herself deeper and deeper into trouble with her ridiculous situations.
One thing I also enjoyed was meeting Sam's friends Jen and Ellie and seeing what happened to them. They were both lovely characters but with their own issue and flaws. I also liked the addition of Luke, Jamie's friend and his relationship woes. One think that did strike me as odd though was that Luke seemed like an addition to the story without anything actually happening with him (if that makes sense).
Like I said before the second half of the book was brilliant and made up for my struggles with Sam in the first half. I certainly enjoyed this and can see that Jane Costello definitely ticks all the right boxes, but for some reason this just isn't my favourite of hers. I will still look forward to her new release, and catching up on her older books that I have yet to read.
As soon as we meet our main character Sam it is clear that her life has just been turned upside down. Partner Jamie has decided that he can't be with Sam anymore as he now has plans to move to South America and these plans do not include Sam although he insists he still loves her. This is hard for any girl to hear and it sounds like mixed messages as surely if you love someone you cannot bear to be without them. Distraught Sam soon comes up with a plan along with the help of her tow friends and Jamie's sister to try and win him back and change his mind.
We see some of Jane Costello's familiar humour shining through in some of the situations that occur to win back Jamie one of my favourites involving a malfunctioning boob boost! I found that Sam's character felt pretty in depth which I think is helped by the fact that the book is told from Sam's point of view so we get to see and feel her thoughts and feelings first hand. I did find at one point in the book closer to the end that I wanted to throttle her for the way she was treating character Ben as I loved him he came across as a true caring gentleman.
Although the book was witty throughout the book there was also a deeper topic which was briefly covered to do with one of Sam's friends and I thought this was covered very delicately and gave a lovely unexpected touch to the book.Read more ›
however, I didn't empathise as much as I wanted to with the character of Samantha Brooks because I got bored with her quite vacuous lifestyle and friends.
I couldn't see why she desperately wanted Jamie her boyfriend who dumped her back, and the new man Ben was too perfect, but the style of writing was highly comedic, so who cares.
Sam made me laugh and I kept on wanting to go back to the book to find out what happened with each character next, to the point I put off going out.
I have to say while this book is definitely a good read, it didn't really engross me until Julia, Samantha's sister's storyline really became more apparent and I wish she and Sam's parents had featured more. I also felt I wanted to know more about Ellie, Sam's best friend and what led to her problem, although I am aware this is a light read and the introduction of these other themes is one of the many reasons the previous books have been so entertaining, and head and shoulders above other of the genre.
I liked the way the book ended and it was as uplifting as it was unpredictable. I will be definitely hotly anticipating the next book from this author.
