Goodreads:  For Waverly Bryson, life is anything but boring! And never is that fact more evident than in Maria Murnane’s delightful third novel about the irrepressible heroine. This time around, Waverly faces a game-changing opportunity: an offer to turn her popular advice column into a regular guest spot on the new TV show Love, Wendy. It could be the break of a lifetime—but for a few not-so-minor details. For starters, Waverly’s acceptance of the job means moving clear across the country, giving up her rent-controlled apartment, and leaving behind her best friends McKenna and Andie. Oh, and there’s the fact that TV host extraordinaire Wendy Davenport is none-too-pleased by the prospect of Waverly usurping her broadcast throne. Then there’s Jake, Waverly’s boyfriend. He’s as crazy about her as ever. His mother, on the other hand? Not so much. 

Kritters Thoughts:  Book 3 in a series and if you haven't read book 1 or 2, then there may be spoiler or two in here, so don't read any further if you want to start at square 1!

We meet Waverly again in this book as she is taking a big leap of faith and moving across the country for a job that she doesn't have a ton of details for.  The one perk for the job is moving to the same coast as her boyfriend as Jake lives in Atlanta.  Will this move help move their relationship forward?  Will this be the big break for her career and her clothing line?  

I love Maria Murnane's writing.  It is easy and has just the right flow.  Even though I had taken a break in between reading book 2 and book 3, it was so easy for me to get right back in and enjoy Waverly's story.  Waverly is just the right amount of fun and sass with being a fictional character but still someone that you would want as a friend.

I also loved the balance of work and romance.  Some stories that revolve around a young woman are unbalanced and either work or romance are the driving force, I loved that Waverly was trying to balance both and she felt passion about both her career and work life and trying to be a good partner in her relationship.  It just felt healthy!

Right as I finished this one, I was excited that I already had book 4 in hand, so tomorrow I will be reviewing book 4 - Chocolate for Two.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
