One girl. Two guys. It’s complicated.
First there is Isaac, the ex-boyfriend who threatens her move to a sunny new life on the west coast when he suddenly comes back into the picture. The chemistry is intoxicating and Josie starts eating, breathing, and sleeping with him again until the move. Things are hard enough saying goodbye to her childhood home and very best friends, but when Isaac makes it seem like he might actually want her to stay, Josie wonders if she’s giving up on him too quickly.
Josie takes the plunge and moves to California.
Then comes Carter. Sweet, doting – and, oh my god! – former boy band heartthrob, Carter. Josie’s new life falls into place, with new friends and a job working as the personal assistant for Carter as he plans the re-launch of his career. When it seems like there might be something between Josie and her new boss, she can’t help but hold back in fear of crossing a line and, worse yet, getting her heart crushed. Once again.
What spirals into a complicated, heart wrenching, unexpected love triangle forces Josie to face a decision that she is not sure she can make. Carter or Isaac. Or – who knows?
It’s Sex in the City meets Bridget Jones Diary under the Hollywood sign.
I can see this book being a light, New Adult version of Sex in the City. It is a coming of age story with the main character, Josie newly relocated to the City of Angels. Josie has been having an on again off again relationship with Isaac and her moving permanently makes the relationship an off again one. Josie acclimatises well to LA and even begins a new relationship with Carter. I liked Josie’s character, she was a realistic representation of a Generation Y in their twenties getting out there and trying to find her way. Josie drove this book more than the plot and I was just waiting to see what she got herself into next. Overall, I did really enjoy this light and fluffy New Adult read with some serious undertones about finding yourself and not defining yourself by someone else.
