Book Description

Millie is a plus size girl in a size zero world. She spends her days producing glamorous runway shows and her nights pursuing her dream of being a writer by exposing the juicy secrets of the fashion underworld. But working 24/7 has sucked all the juiciness out of her own life until a mysterious new client sporting a sweet pair of blue suede shoes knocks her off her feet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many dream scenes among other things June 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an OK read. I have to say that at some point, I just wanted to get to the end of it.

I, too, started to skim over the dream sequences after the first couple. There were a few places in the book that were just boring. I would have liked to have more information about some of the characters. The two interns (Lizzie & Ryan), Scarlett, Millie, even Daniel. It felt like some of the characters weren't fully developed.

Did Millie have family in the US? Why was India more if a home to her? She spoke of being with Daniel as the person who could make her laugh, the person who shared her passion for art and creativity. Why did she always seem to be so overwhelmed in his presence?

I don't know. I guess it was just too many unanswered questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light hearted fashion romp. June 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A strong female character with excellent work ethics and a delightful sense of humor. Add a handsome young man and the world of fashion runways and you have a great little story. My only complaint - it was too short. I definitely wanted more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read August 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a light, fun read. I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the book. I can't say I cared a whole lot for the ending (I think it moved too quickly, making it less believable), but overall the book was enjoyable, especially if you're looking for something uncomplicated after a stressful day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute But Not My Favorite June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a cute book, but it definitely wasn't a favorite. I was hoping for a lot more with the premise. I found myself skimming through pretty much every single dream sequence that Millie had since they just went on and on and on. Loved the ending even if it did jump rather quickly to it's ultimate conclusion. It's a very fast read (especially when you skim the several long dream sequences). Finished it in less than half a day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and funny read! December 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a somewhat predictable chick lit book. That said, it was a fast and easy read. There was the twist of a supposedly homosexual Indian male. Some questions lingered, relating to what happened with Marta once Millicent moved on, why Millicent had no family in America . . . But there were enough laughs in a slim plot to make for a good beach or holiday read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to more from this author! July 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't normally read a romance novel, but I know the author and love her work-in-progress, so I gave this a try.

I love the main character's voice. Millie is a spunky, opinionated woman in the fashion industry who happens to be attracted to the Indian man whose show she is designing. The sexual tension and the awkwardness between these two characters are very believable, funny, and relatable.

I did feel there was a bit of unnecessary backstory, or else the backstory could have been incorporated into present-day scenes, but as it was, the story was compelling. I flew through the last fifth of the book as events came to a head, and I loved the author's incorporation of Indian culture.

Since I don't work in the fashion industry, I'm not sure how accurate that part of the storyline is, but the author made it seem believable. I look forward to reading more from this author!
