Product Description

About the Author

Beth Orsoff is the author of Romantically Challenged, Disengaged, Girl in the Wild, Honeymoon for One, and Vlad All Over. She was born in New York City and has never lived more than an hour’s drive from the ocean—even spending her formative years toiling as a lifeguard where she was “paid to work on her tan.” When her parents forced her to get a “real job,” she went to law school and forged a career as an entertainment attorney in Los Angeles. Currently, when she’s not writing humorous or suspenseful women’s fiction, Orsoff can be found at her desk drafting Hollywood contracts. Sadly, she no longer sports a tan.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having grown up with a flaky, hippy mother Allie wants her own life to be dull but secure. Her high power career as an accountant in LA has given her financial security and now at 32 Allie is looking for a husband with a secure job so she can settle down to a future with 2.2 children and a large home. For the last year Allie has been dating Brad, the sex is great so, although her best friends dislike him, and in truth she has little but sex in common with him, Brad seems to be the man who would give her exactly the future she has been looking for. Brad's sudden proposal that they get married is hasty and not very romantic but the ring he produces is beautiful,and he does fit the picture of her ideal man so Allie accepts with delight. Enter the major fly in the ointment -Sylvia Peterson the future mother-in-law from hell, who is determined to take complete control over the Allie and Brad's wedding.[there are other 'flys' but let the reader find those!] Brad is determined to ignore his mother's interference so that despite the fact that when they have time together the sex between Brad and Allie continues to be great,when they are apart Allie gets more and more involved in lives of her friends and more and more frustrated by Sylvia. Almost imperceptibly to both of them the rift between Allie and Brad grows. Do they, don't they marry, does the reader want them to marry? It would spoil the story to say anymore but this is a frothy, funny story which would make a delightful poolside or train/plane journey read.fjs

The title belongs to Brad in the story as he listened more to his mother than Allie about their wedding. Also what she found him doing later in the story fits this title. They are engaged preparing to get married but his mother acts like it's her wedding.....

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is not original and nor does it approach being great fiction but for a quick, easy and entertaining read it's ideal.

Allie is planning her wedding to Brad but Brad's Mother is the future Mother-in-Law from hell and her interfering is causing real problems with the wedding and the relationship. It is obvious from the beginning that Brad is not the man for Allie but the author has to be careful at this point because if Brad and his family appear to be too silly then Allie does too and the whole book falls apart. In this novel the author gets the balance right - we understand why Allie is prepared to marry Brad but we also know why he's not good enough for her. Watching Allie come to this conclusion for herself is great fun, especially when accompanied by the events around the wedding preparation. Most of this is amusing and bits of it are downright funny (although the bit with the inflatable doll is actually disturbing).

It was nice to see a heroine with a proper job in this book (Allie is an accountant for people in the film industry) and to find that she has real emotional issues around the marriage and her family which were realistically depicted. It all made sense to me in the particular way that light romance does.

This is one to read with a bottle of wine and some chocolate. It will keep you nicely entertained for a few hours and as it aims to do no more it is a very successful novel.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This very light, fluffy piece of chick lit follows the travails of accountant Allie, engaged to her long-term boyfriend Brad but now besieged both by her own doubts and an overbearing mother-in-law to be. I found this an entertaining read, but it was weakly plotted. The novel lurches off first on one course and then the other, and Beth Orsoff can't seem to decide how to integrate the various themes - Allie and Brad's relationship, the love lives of Allie's friends, and her problematic mother-in-law. Near the end of the novel, this tendency is, if anything, only magnified; a random confrontation in an airport is particularly unnecessary. (If this was Orsoff's attempt to make the ending more surprising, it failed completely, as I was pretty certain what the resolution would be from the first few chapters.) A sub-plot involving a mystery at Allie's work also fizzles off into nowhere, and doesn't appear to contribute to Allie's character arc at all. Ironically, while the ending of the novel seems rushed, it drags in the middle; Allie appears to visit wedding dress shops about a dozen times, and the extremely short chapters didn't help to engage my interest, as scenes seemed choppy and underdeveloped. While this was good for whiling away a few hours, I'm not sure I'd try anything else by Orsoff.

Disengaged is a good title for a story about getting engaged and the rocky journey that follows because of it.

It starts off with a proposal by Brad to Allie at a party held in honour of a soap star's Emmy Award (cue outrageous soap plot-lines that are so outlandish they could be real). Jax Montgomery applauds the pair believing they are actors new to the soap rehearsing their first scene but embarrassingly that is not the case. And thus the main characters are introduced.

The rest of the book follows Allie as she prepares for this wedding, although the interfering mother-in-law-to-be, who Allie has an icy relationship (leading to some humorous, barbed exchanges) takes over, much to Allie's dislike. It turns the wedding into a relationship-ruining affair and makes Allie reconsider her love for Brad.

And at the same time through the process Allie seems to be innocently meeting the Jax fellow from the opening scene ("And that's how I ended up on a second non-date with Jax Montgomery.")

Throughout much of the book I had a smile on my face. It is written in a light-hearted fashion but still has length. The humour never breaks up the story and the characters are defined, although maybe some a little one-dimensional (Brad possibly, and his dad who only seems to watch televised sport).

I enjoyed the book throughout, despite me being a man and it being aimed at women, and recommend it.
