Goodreads: Kat Porter is a consummate romantic, eager for her chance to find love and commitment. But after her boyfriend of four years, Marc, begins to grow apathetic and sends her calls straight to voicemail one too many times, Kat finally musters the courage to confront her so-called sweetheart, who seems more interested in dodging her than courting her. Though she’s no fan of ultimatums, Kat is at the end of her considerable wits, and lobs a massive one his way, completely confident that he'll make the right decision when faced with losing her. He doesn't.
Kritters Thoughts: Are you looking for the perfect girlie book to add to your collection? Pick this one up! Kat Porter is just trying to fall in love and find her forever and the current relationship with Marc is just not working, so she finally takes matter into her own hands and makes a break, but this break breaks her and makes her start from the beginning.
This book hit close to home and was entertaining, I found it to the perfect recipe for a chick lit read. I was Kat's age when I said forget it and decided to go at it single for awhile. A year and a half later, I met the boy I am now going to marry and I know how scary it was to decided at 25 to be single and realize that maybe I wouldn't be marrying soon like all of the rest of my friends were, it was hard.
I loved reading a book that takes a main character and flips her world upside down, life isn't always perfect and I liked the realism of life that Silver showed through her characters. And of course, another part that hit home to me was the gay best friend - I have one and without him I wouldn't be the me I am today, that relationship is something that can not be recreated and beyond my significant other is most precious. I applaud Silver by putting it at the center of the book, I loved the humor he brought, but also the support system to Kat as she went through new adventures.
I am recommending this book to all of my friends who love a good chick lit read.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
