About the Book: (Amazon.com) When Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her ailing recruitment business, she's confident she'll sail through to the end without letting down the perma-guard she's perfected from years of her love 'em and leave 'em dating strategy.
After all, what can go wrong with dating a few losers and hanging out long enough to pick up a juicy £200,000 prize? Plenty, Mattie discovers, when it's revealed that the contestants are four of her very unhappy exes.
Can Mattie confront her past to get the prize money she so desperately needs, or will her exes finally wreak their long-awaited revenge? And what about the ambitious TV producer whose career depends on stopping her from making it to the end?
From My Point of View:
Likes: I loved the storyline for this book! It was cute, quirky, and unique!
Dislikes: Though I loved the storyline, there were a few details I wasn't thrilled with: the biggest being the producers and their scheming. I don't work in the entertainment industry, so I don't know how realistic it would really be, but a few of the details bothered me, which means a) it was well written or b) it was way off base. Hard for me to tell!
Why 3 stars: Maddie was a little too strong willed for me. I am so different from her character that I found it hard to relate to her and her life.
Recommendation: A fun read for chick lit fans!
