Publisher's Summary

Best friends Tracie and Jonny meet for coffee each Sunday night to discuss their forlorn love lives. Tracie loves boys with an affinity for leather jackets and poetry - classic bad boys who seem too good to be true (and usually are); Jonny falls for girls who never like him in that way . . . until Jonny convinces Tracie to teach him some tricks of the trade. After a wardrobe makeover, learning to return from a dinner date with another phone number scrawled on his hand, scope for women at the airport baggage claim, and always carry a motorcycle helmet (even though he doesn't ride a motorcycle), Jonny quickly becomes a successful heartbreaker. And Tracie discovers that she just might be head-over-heels in love with her best friend. But there are more than a few loose ends. Tracie's current bad boy has at last decided he wants to settle down, her girlfriend has the hots for Jonny, and Jonny can't understand why Tracie never liked him for who he was before the leather.With her inimitable wit, Olivia Goldsmith, best-selling author of The First Wives Club, delivers a smart, laugh-out-loud tale of modern romance sure to keep listeners everywhere in stitches.

The star goes to the Narrator Not the Writer

I'm really embarrassed the author is woman. Boring plot, unlikable characters and I don't think I've ever disliked a heroin in a book as much as this one. If you like insulting & self absorbed characters then ... you just might like this one. The hero of the book is a whiner and a real idiot for a supposed genius. There is no anticipation of what's going to happen at all. No feeling, NO HUMOR (which is why I was interested to begin with) Not at all a fun read. I skipped several chapters and still missed nothing. I would take a pass.

A love story!

Definitely rated R- and although I don't usually read books like this-I loved the story and the characters. The narrator was great too. Would LOVE to read a less graphic novel by this author, cause she really knows how to tell a story!!
