Loved it. It's chick lit, true, but much better than most. The characters are multi-dimensional and not always likable. The pacing is spot on, and, though not always believable, the plot is intriguing and to-the-moment in theme. It's not literary fiction, of course, but I think it's very successful as a chick lit novel.
This one is definitely worth suspending your disbelief for. It's a fast read (I read it in two nights and it's close to 500 pages) and the plot will keep you moving. I cared about all of the characters and what would happen to them - during the day I was anxious to get home and read the end. To me that's one mark of a good book.
I recommend giving it a try, especially if you're looking for a high quality, easy, light read. The characters are relatable and the plot is fun. Even though the book deals with some heavy subject matter regarding addiction, the tone overall is light and upbeat. It's a feel-good book and idea for reading on the beach or while travelling. The author has another book out, Arranged, that I'll definitely be looking for.
