3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
Twenty-eight-year-old Lindsey Miller has had a streak of bad luck, from losing her job, catching the flu that later turned into pneumonia, received two bruised ribs from coughing, and she pulled a muscle in her back. She also embarrassed herself in front of her ex-boyfriend when she backed into a parked car while somewhat stalking him. She has officially hit rock bottom.

Thanks to her friend Danielle, she now has a job interview at the largest advertising company in Chicago - Gordon-Taylor. She ends up getting a job predicting trends for the company's newsletter, The Pulse, which is sent out to all their clients. There are a few catches to the job. It requires her to fly back and forth between New York and L.A. She also has to work with Jen Savage on the project. While Lindsey is in New York, Jen is in L.A. and vice versa.

Lindsey soon finds out that New York is a whole different place than Chicago. Asking random people to do a questionnaire is not as easy as it looks on television as some people are really rude. Even getting into a new shopping store is a challenge for her. Everything seems to be a complete disaster until she meets a Wall Street Broker, Victor Ragsdale.

Finding trends in L.A. seems a lot easier for her and so is finding another love interest, Danny Wynn, a California surfer.

Bicoastal Babe is not my typical read, but once I learned that it is going to be a new CW series called Trending, I decided to give it a try. I was laughing hysterically by the end of chapter one as Lindsey embarrassed herself in front of her ex. The character maybe a twenty-eight-year-old, but she has a lot of growing up to, especially in her attitude and her occasional use of a certain four letter word.

Cynthia Langston is a delight to read. I admit I was a bit skeptical like all new authors are to me, but Bicoastal Babe was right up my alley.
From the first page, Lindsey Miller calls to me. She is awkwardly right and she reminds me a lot of well…me in different ways. And I’m sure Lindsey Miller will touch your heart and make you giggle as you read about her latest guffaw and chuckle as she drives by her ex boyfriend’s house for the millionth time and is caught, and yes Lindsey will make you laugh out loud as she gets booted out of her new apartment by her roommate and is made to wait out in the hallway as the couple on the other side of the door continue to have sex.
At the opening of Bicoastal Babe, Lindsey Miller has lost her long time boyfriend, and is caught doing a drive by of his house. Humiliated, she drives home only to be fired from her job the next day. Depressed, she secludes herself for months in her apartment to the point where it looks like a junkyard of pizza boxes and used Kleenex. Exasperated, her trio of friends breaks into her apartment when she won’t let them in, never showing an ounce of sympathy, they steamroll her into a job interview for an ad agency. Her dream job. Not really trusting that dreams do come true; Lindsey never the less buys a power suit and walks into a fiasco of a career.
Her new job? Fashion trend forecaster. Flying from Los Angeles one week and New York the next, asking random people on the street corner what they like and don’t like about the current fashion trends. Between figuring out how to succeed in smoozing people and trying to contend with her new roommate who is also her partner in the job, Jen; Lindsey hasn’t got the time for men. Or does she?

Format: Paperback
Allow me to begin by saying I spent the first three quarters of the book wanting to headbutt Lindsey, the main character. She makes decisions and clearly understands the possible negative repercussions but goes through with them, anyway. I really respect the author for being so true to Lindsey's personality and her faults. Lindsey makes decisions that are honest to who she is and her character is clearly defined throughout the story. While this didn't work for me, individually, I think this is a real pull for many people looking to connect to the heroine of a story. She isn't perfect and she makes decisions that aren't the best but are what she's capable of doing at the time. It may be a somewhat polarizing technique in writing as some readers are looking to relate to their heroines and others are looking to see the heroine they want to be. However, the technique doesn't mean the book isn't enjoyable.

It does mean, however, that it took me a little extra effort to make it to the action of the book because I kept yelling "why would you do that?". It's easy for me, the reader, to say this given I see more of her universe than Lindsey does. I acknowledge that. But in real life, I don't have that capability and that's what Ms. Langston is writing about.

This is, perhaps, the absolute best part of the book, as a whole. Ms. Langston, the author, never once sugar coats a character or makes him or her palatable. Rather, she has a character and she makes him or her absolutely real. You expect character archetypes in books. This is a book with no archetypes, just real people. Every character has a real flaw and some equal strengths, as well.
