My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A funny, upbeat chick-lit read. Nothing too taxing here, a nice story and loads of laughs keeping things light. Perfect when you are looking to escape to a happy place and read while soaking in a bubble bath, really the best way to read chick lit in my opinion!
Valerie is a fun campy character, if a bit spoiled in the beginning. I loved following her on her journey and seeing her discover who she is and wants to be. She is engaging and likeable even when acting a touch bratty.
I loved the dynamic between Valerie and Matt was fantastic. I was really rooting for them to get together. The end was predictable, but so is most chick lit!
Really fun read to help take your mind off the world and it's dramas!
