"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.
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!

Lennie's debut novel is full of heart and fun characters. The supporting cast is made up of some incredible men, some downright sleazy men, a mother that makes you want to yell at her in Dawn's defense, and a couple of cute kitties. If you've been to LA, you can envision clearly a lot of the places that are described, which helps bring it to life. I have to agree that if you love "Sex and the City", you are going to enjoy "Blow Me", a great debut from Lennie Ross.
