In October of 2013, Jessica married her real-life "One Who Got Away." Going forward, any future titles will be published under her married name - Jessica Goodwin.

5% of the way through, and the main character has complained about not wanting to date one of her male friends - despite them having a friends with benefits arrangement and him wanting more - because she doesn't want to ruin the friendship. But then she turns around and starts thinking about trying to date another of her male friends - one who other friends say is really just a manwhore - because she thinks she can change him. Apparently she has stopped caring about losing any of these guys as friends. It makes no sense and the main character sounds like a complete idiot. Fast forward to neither of the situations working out and suddenly manwhore is seriously dating someone, so is hook-up dude, and our 'heroine' is all whiney and emo about her best girl friend getting married and being with her 'perfect man' blah blah. Continual references to how you just know when 'the one' comes along as well as ridiculous waffling about by the main character made this excruciating to read. I only finished it to see where it would go and to add more fuel to my review. Finally she ends up with a third close guy friend that there were previously zero sparks with much less any kind of attraction whatsoever and I can only end the book with the feeling that the author is trying to tell me that we all must settle just so we can be with someone. Yes, I realize that the heroine and the third guy were really good friends before, but there was NOTHING there but that. NOTHING. So to have them suddenly end up together felt rushed, contrived and just plain stupid. I also felt as though the author was telling all those idiots who blather on and on about being 'friend-zoned', that their one sided crushes really can turn into something if they just wait it out. Hogwash.Read more ›

Seems like this was written in haste to get a book out there. Very trite dialogue. Nothing deeply developed. Hard to believe that Kate was the same character as in The One That Got Away! She was weak, needy, and lacked deep thinking skills. Very disappointed.

The book was pleasant and easy to read. The plot was a little thin but at least it was a bit different to the usual romance. There were no major twists and turns that keep you guessing - just a cute story about a girl who enjoys the company of a group of male friends and finds that she cant distinguish between friendship and love. She sorts it out in the end but its a little predictable. Overall, not bad but no classic.

Not a good story line, and really unlikable characters.
The main character was so annoying. I really didn't like her. She was stupid and so were all the supporting characters.

This honestly seamed like a very bad rudimentary version of, In Search of a Love Story -Rachel Schurig

In Search of a Love Story had kind of similar cast of characters and story line, but it's done so much better.

The ending of this book when all the friends and girlfriends loved each other was ridiculous! It was so unrealistic and over the top happy perfect life. The main characters two best friends were so annoying. How many times can one book say "omg they're the perfect/ideal couple! They are made for each other! I can't believe they perfectly they fit together! I want to be just like them!" I was so annoyed.

Bottom line is I like cheesy rom-com and chick-lit's just as much as the next person, but this book was just bad. I did not like it. It was a bit over the top honestly.

I don't recommend unless your into annoying dumb main characters and useless supporting characters with a good dose of over-the-top-ness.

Started the book and didn't put it down until I was finished. A great summer read for the beach. Loved it.

Didn't like the casual premarital sex. But the story was cute. But too much detail was spent on mundane details like how she cleaned the house or got ready for to go to sleep, and not enough details about little nuances in behaviors of the guys to see more of what they were thinking/feeling through their actions. Good story though. I liked main character, cool girl with a bunch of guy friends who treat her as one of the guys but obviously still know she is an attractive girl too.

I read all three of Jessica's novels and this was far and away the best. Nicely paced and cheerful, a great chick book
