    I am not usually the type of person to write a review, but I felt like it was necessary with this book. I very much disliked all of the characters, but most of all, the main character Shelly. Instead of acting like an adult in her early 30s (I myself am 30 years old), she reminded me of an immature teenager. The most appalling part of this character is that she is supposedly an English teacher, and her dialect is that of a 15 year old. She swears frequently (and unnecessarily), uses texting acronyms in normal conversation, and is always using stupid phrases like “for shizzle.” This character should be a permanent part of an AA group with all of the alcohol she consumes, and she is incredibly shallow when it comes to choosing a guy. The rest of the characters are also all miraculously teachers, just like her; the old boyfriend, the new boyfriend, the best friend, and even her brother. I guess the part that bothers me the most about that is they all seem to be just as uneducated as she is, and unbothered by the fact that she sounds like a moron most of the time.
    I was very disappointed with this book. I really tried to keep reading hoping it would get better, but I kept putting it down because I was too irritated to keep going. I finally made it the end of the book, after skimming through the last 20 pages of or so, only to find out that the buildup from the entire book was a big let down and definitely not worth it.

    OK, first of all I had to get over the fact that the guy on the cover appears to be the same guy on the cover of Charade. It threw me off a little bit…

    Anyway, this book is about early 30-ish high school teachers Shelly, Melissa, Matt and Chase. Shelly is getting over her broken engagement to Chase, Matt is moving in for the kill and Shelly and Melissa, BFF’s, act hilariously immature through the whole thing. That’s the best part, really – how Shel and Mel crack themselves and each other up all the time. They made me laugh out loud a lot. And it was all just so stupid. In a good way.

    And Matty (hate that name) is the coolest, sweetest, sexiest, best guy ever. What’s not to love? The friendship-to-romance relationship between him and Shelly was perfect and light-hearted. Mostly.

    But, again, Shelly and Melissa steal this show, in my opinion. I like any book that can make me laugh all the way through it and this book had that in spades.

    Recommended for when you’re looking for a light, not too emotionally taxing read.

    I was looking for a funny, lighthearted read and was pleasantly surprised. This book was really funny. Mel and Shelly were hilarious. I loved them from the start. They reminded me of my besties. And matty was absolutely swoon worthy. The Notebook scene is hilarious. I will be purchasing t
    MEL’s book immediately. Can’t wait to hear about her and Ty. Fantastic!!!! I loved and highly recommend.
