Samantha grew up as a good Catholic girl. Under the intense scrutiny of her parents, she did what any good girl would do, she married her best guy friend to get away! Unfortunately, that marriage took a jump off of a cliff without a parachute. Sam decided to follow the advice of her mentor, in work and in life, and she moved halfway across the country for a new career and lots of sex! Thus, her journey to discovering herself began. Following her heart, and the advice of every magazine that she can get her hands on, Sam is determined to find her happily ever after.
This was a rather enjoyable, quick summer read. Samantha Serrano reminds me of a combination of all four Sex and the City girls rolled in to one. She is snarky, hopeful, smart, sexy: everything that you hope to find in a great girlfriend. I think that most of us can say that we have turned to a women’s mag for advice at one time or another, but this girl takes it to the extreme, and the outcome is delightful. Julian does a wonderful job of putting forward a flawed and loveable main character, that is easy to see reflections of yourself in. I read this in one sitting. It was witty, laugh-out-loud funny, heart wrenching, and above all- hopeful. If you’re looking for a quick, fun, sexy summer read, this may just be the book you’re looking for!
