Adriana is stunning and can have any man she desires.
Yet all she wants is an eligible bachelor who'll slip a five-carat Harry Winston diamond on her finger.
Leigh has a doting boyfriend that most girls would kill for.
But when literary bad boy Jesse Chapman asks to work with her and more, she just can't refuse.

Review by Fluffyblue
I didn't realise I was enjoying this book until I got to the end of it! Most of the way through I kept thinking, "What's the point of this, where is this book going". There didn't seem to be much of a story. The book is about three women who are making changes in their life - some because they want to, some because they have to. All the changes involve relationships. The characters didn't really appeal to me. I couldn't identify with any of them. I imagined Adriana to be the woman with the heavy tan in "Something About Mary" - ie Mary's flatmate who's about 50 but thinks she's about 20? Anyway, that's not the point, I just couldn't picture the characters.It wasn't until I got to the end of the book that I realised I did actually like the characters and I had made connections with them. I have read "The Devil Wears Prada" and this was nowhere near as good as that. I hadn't read her other book, and perhaps that would have given me more of a clue they style of the writing in this book. I had really enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, so this was somewhat of a disappointment.

Another foray into the chick-lit genre. This time three friends decide that they need to change themselves within one year. The promiscuous one decides she will settle down and become engaged. The more conservative one decides she needs to have an affair with a man from every continent. The last one thinks her life is perfect until she accepts some things about herself and her current relationship. Like all good chick-lit the story isn't too deep, it makes you think a little and it end happily ever after. It was enjoyable for that reason alone, not a lot of brain power required of this one. It took me about 50 pages or so to get into it, but once I did it clicked for me and I was able to breeze right through it.
