Ok so it really pains me to have to write my review this way since there were so many things I enjoyed about this book, but I have to give it the most solid 3 ever.
The Good: Narration is superb! The main character Maggie is hysterical, lovable, energetic, and pretty (well almost) normal. There were many touching, realistic scenes that could honestly happen to either one of us. The writing is phenomenal and funny as heck.
The Bad: Why the heck did the male interest not speak but like 4 times in the entire book? There was nothing to fall in love with and I mean even a grouch speaks to someone at least once a day.
I have to agree with another reviewer I read because while everything else lined up for a great novel, the actual supposed romance robbed the book from a 5 star rating. Dang they could have given more as far as a leading man was concerned.

Ok, so how do you fall in love with a guy that doesn't say more than....um.... 3 words in any given sentence? AND that is just my first of oh-so-many-dissapointments about this book.
Very well written, and freaking fantastic narrator! I love her. really good. PLUS i loved The Best Man- so I was primed to love this book to- PLUS being a golden retriever lover.
But nooooo....I don't want to ruin it, but lets just say that i was moved to extremely sad tears (read here: NOT HAPPY) at one part of the book. While the first part is fun and reading about her Dating disasters is quite hilarious- I just kept thinking, OK ....where is the more!? Where is the great guy, or the quiet guy comes out of the shell, or i donno, SOMETHING! but wait.... nothing.
Well let me tell you about that more- sitting here with just an hour and 11 minutes left of the book, i'm still holding out hope for something to turn around. Which I know, because i love this genre of books, that it will work out- i have not particularly enjoyed the ride. I keep waiting for her lot to get better, but so far- no resolution. I mean this book better have the best freaking fantastic ever ending to redeem itself!
Usually when reading this genre you know that something has to turn for the worst and then resolve. Yet, 80% of this book is for the worst. I mean, it gets ultra crappy for our dear sweet heroine (which is, kinda annoying to be honest.)
But anyways, this will definitely NOT be in my reread list. Although, it must be said, that i've been up since 3am listening to it... THAT should tell you how much hope i had for it. I just kept waiting for it to get better. So steer clear if you love SEP, or Lisa Kleypas, etc. Plus the romance left a lot to be desired. just saying.
