Book Description

Blow Me is the story of three single women—each close to forty and living a life they have long outgrown. Aware that the women’s magazines of their youth sold them a false bill of goods about having it all—the amazing career, the baby, the house, the husband—each woman is desperate to achieve some sense of stability. Skylar, a hairdresser/executive assistant who lost her job and burned down her apartment after a fondue party, is living out of her car; Chloe, a struggling actress/real estate agent with a French Canadian accent who has never sold a house and doesn’t have her SAG card, struggles to get a Green Card; and Dawn, an MBA-educated dating matchmaker, is hedging her bets against the ticking clock by freezing embryos. Their lives are in chaos and their only hope is to be rescued through marriage or by a Hairy Godfather. Situated in the shallow world of Los Angeles, this provocative novel in the style of Sex and the City provides a humorous look at aging, dating, and being single in the new millennium.

5.0 out of 5 stars IndieReader Review June 8, 2012
Format:Paperback
Three single women in Los Angeles are looking for the perfect man; a man who can give them everything that is. Skylar, Dawn and Chloe want it all: fine dining, shopping trips galore, the best cars, amazing sex, even children; and they will go to great lengths to get all that they desire.All in their "late thirties" each woman has a chosen a unique path, and at times they seem to have nothing else in common, but somehow they remain friends despite all of their ups and downs.

These ups and downs include: Skylar losing her job to two younger, hotter versions of herself, accidentally burning down her apartment and then living in her brand new Mercedes. Chloe's jealousy, hot temper and continual willingness to be "falling in love" aka "Found another rich one!" while she works as an actress who never acts/realtor who never sells anything. Dawn ironically works at a matchmaking agency and her overbearing mother tries to rule her love life. Dawn decides to harvest her eggs so she can have children whether or not Mr. Right keeps his title or becomes just Mr. Right Now.

Skye finds herself by traveling the world, develops the passion she was missing, and finally learns to put her talents to good use. Dawn finds what she is looking for and readers will be turning pages madly to see whether she loses him painfully or ends up happily ever after. Chloe is the friend we all have and don't quite know what to do with. But as we learn by Chloe's bizarre example, karma seems to sort those situations out in the end.

Ross keeps readers hooked to see what kind of misadventure (or delightful surprise) may be around the corner for these three fascinating characters. Whether drying each other's tears or of course, hair, the book is a fun, frisky trip down Rodeo Drive that shouldn't be missed. I laughed, got misty eyed, had a mani-pedi and laughed some more. If you like Chick Lit, you will love these chicks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brava, Ms. Ross October 31, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a 56 year old man, just finished reading "Blow Me" by Lennie Ross, and loved it. You may think that "chick lit" is only for women, but men can learn a lot about women by reading that genre, especially from "Blow Me". There were many times that it made me laugh out loud, but also yell things like "Holy S..." (very embarrassing when reading in a restaurant)!

"Blow Me" is set in Los Angeles,where everyone has a title of Actor/Waitress, Actor/Plumber, Actor/Real Estate Agent, or similar. The three main characters, Skye, Dawn, and Chloe, are all in their late 30s (or so they say), dressing like they're in their late 20s, and are all looking for Mr. Right, but having little luck.

Between Dawn's Jewish mother butting into her dating business, Skye's apartment fire at the most inopportune time, and Chloe's attemps to latch onto any single man she meets, there's plenty of action. The ladies each flit around on their own separate adventures, but those adventures intertwine at some of the oddest times, with the ladies growing up a bit more each time.

Ms. Ross provides excellent character development, interesting twists and turns, and with chapter titles like "I'll Be Auditioning for the Role of Wife", "Look What the Yenta Dragged in", "Dinner Doesn't Equal Sex - Lunch Does", and my favorite "Three Cougars Walk into a Bar", you're in for a treat. Speaking of treats, there's even a "free sample" route through Beverly Hills included for no extra charge.

I had a blast reading "Blow Me", and I look forward to the movie version, as long as Ms. Ross writes the screenplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss out on the chance to read this book!! March 13, 2012
Format:Paperback
After reading Twilight: Breaking Dawn I needed something a little different to read. I picked up this book and could not put it down. As a woman, I found myself relating to so many different aspects of each character's journey. It is a great break out novel for Ms Ross and I truly hope she decides to write another one!!! Thanks for making me laugh out loud with your novel!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!! January 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book. I mostly read murder mysteries or thrillers and take a break with chick-lit... this book was such an entertaining read, I wish she had another in the series that I could download today! The characters are well developed and you feel like you know them by the time you are half way through the book. It's not super predictable, like most chick-lit... it's an engaging, funny, well written, current, great book! I highly recommend this book to anyone... young or older. Great book!! I'm telling all my friends about it... if they haven't read it already! Thanks, Lennie Ross - looking forward to your next novel!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOW ME October 2, 2011
By KRR
Format:Paperback
Here is a guy's perspective. As a long time LA resident and insider, Blow Me is exactly what LA and the Westside lifestyle represents. The message is clear as are the characters, Skylar, Dawn, and Chloe! I know these girls, ok not exactly these women but close facsimiles. The novel is spot on and a good ride for a Chic-Lit novel. The book is wonderful and an good read. It leads you down the clear path of what it's like to be in LA. I know the places in the novel and the ups and downs of the near famous. It could represent a cast of characters not just of the novel but all want-to-be's in So. Cal.. I love this novel and the way it is told. You are there!! Poignant !!!! This is a definite must read for anyone who loves how people interact. A thumbs way up to Lennie Ross !!!!!!!!!
