By Coffee Addicted Writer (Billy) 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.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Bicoastal Babe is one humorous read. Poor Lindsay isn't recovering from a recent breakup with the man she thought she'd marry. When he catches her stalking his house, and losing her job, Lindsay goes into a massive depression. She spends weeks without showering, ordering pizza, and lazing about her house smoking incessantly. Finally her friends have enough and decide to help Lindsay get back out there. She gets a job as a trend tracker, living in Los Angeles one week and then traveling to New York the next, in the hopes of finding out what the next biggest thing is going to be in fashion, food, etc.

Lindsay spends a lot of the book moping about nearly everything. She isn't very confident in her job and nearly loses it several times; if it weren't for her boss, Liz, bailing her out in the beginning, I'm pretty sure she would have ended up back on her Chicago couch eating pizza out of a box. I like how Liz was able to see more in Lindsey then Jen and even Lindsey herself could see. Once Liz boosted her confidence a bit, Lindsey was able to really concentrate on her work and realize she's really good at tracking trends.

Of course she has a boyfriend in New York and one in California. Neither knows about the other; only her LA friend, Carmen, and coworker, Jen, know about the men. I did cringe when Lindsay decides which man she wants, mostly because I thought she went with who was safe to her; which surprisingly wasn't whom anyone else would have found safe.

Overall I really liked the book, however, I disliked the ending...what a cliffhanger! I sure hope that Ms. Langston has another book in the works because that's just not a good way to end a book otherwise. WHAT HAPPENS?!

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.
