You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy’s boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.
When she isn’t in what her husband calls a “writing coma”, Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.
I’m pretty much in love with this cover. It’s fun and flirty which is exactly how this book is. The typography is interesting and beautiful. The composition is spot on. It’s bright and eye catching. It’s pretty much the perfect cover for this book.
Love, at first sight, doesn’t always happen. Sometimes you have to kiss a few (a lot) of frogs before you find your Prince Charming. And sometimes you don’t even realize you’ve found the ONE until they are no longer around…
I simply ADORED this book. It had a total SEX AND THE CITY vibe to it. It was well-written. It was nicely paced. It was humorous. It was sweet. It was hot. It had angst. It had a set of interesting main characters and a great bunch of secondary characters. All topped off with an OK epilogue. Personally, I would have liked a farther into the future look at this couple, but I wasn’t too disappointed.
Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly!
Hi there! I’m a mom and wife by day (and night), aspiring writer (in my dreams), and an avid reader (every day of the week). This is my little corner of the web to post about ALL things books. I live in Copenhagen, but I am a Canadian girl (born and raised) at heart.
