Questioning her pathetic existence, envying her supposedly best friend's life, Sam starts emulating Cara's lifestyle, which leads her into some really bad choices. Like Lou and Bruce, you’re typical one-night stand mentalities. Thinking sex is the only path to love, Sam ultimately realizes her decisions have led to a bad reputation, and she's just as unhappy if not more, than she was before. Deep down inside, she knows she's not being true to herself.
Then Cooper gets hired as the manager for the hospital’s kitchen where Sam works. I really liked his character too, as he also had his own baggage, trying to please everyone but himself. His concept of what bridges mean was quite inspirational.
Every good story must have conflict, and this one has plenty. Between Lou, Bruce, Cara, Cooper, Rosyln, and her mother, Sam is always butting heads, trying to find her place. But her worst enemy is herself. Cara is a strong secondary character. I came to hate her, pity her and then wept for her at the end.
What I didn't like: sometimes there were antics Sam did I just couldn't see someone her age doing. Like stuffing her face full of food and taping her mouth shut. To me, these seemed contrived and unrealistic.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves chick lit and lots of drama. I give it 4 feathers.
Samantha Hart has been an intriguing character in the Fix It or Get Out series, and this book explains everything. Her story jumps off the page as she gets help from (unknowingly) the wrong person to 'act' like who she wants to be, who she thinks is the person men want. This isn't a person we want her to be, a person we like so much, but think of this - at some point, we've made a wrong turn or found something about ourselves we didn't like - so forgiving Sam for her dirty deeds became easier. And, after some unfortunate bumps in the road, she learns who she truly is, the person living within her heart. Once she is able to love herself, she is able to realize love in its pure form with the man standing in front of her.
Ms. Ardigo wrote another love story that pulls at the heartstrings and has one thinking over their own experiences, making this a real story for everyone. Don't add this to your TBR list - one-click and read it today!
I am happy I found this series and this book is a little bit of my favorite in the series even if I love all 3 of them. The story is in many ways unique but also well known. The reader get to experience new things, feel and question its own believes just like I think all good books do. And just like after reading a really good book, I got the feeling of "what shall I do with my life now" when i had finished this series. I didnt know what to feel or think and I couldnt pick up another book becaues this books made me think and still makes me think. I go back and think about situations in the books and in this book and wonder if I have everything figured out in my life or if I can learn something from this books, and now we are talking fiction and not "help yourself books" even if I sort off feel that this book is good for you and for your soul.
So obviously I cant do anything other than give all three books top reviews and 5 starts but sometimes I wish I could give more because some other 5 star books feels weak compared to this series. I read them as e-book and now I have to save money so I can buy them as paperbacks because they are really awesome and I can see myself going back and reread them more than once so I want them as paperback so I can see them and love them all the time. I read the entire series in one day, it really captured me and I think more readers will feel the same so pick them up and read them. This last one can be read as a stand alone just as the second one even if they are in a series. I often say that people should read a book but this is not a "should read book" or "put on my to read list" this is a book and series you should read NOW because it is one of the best conteperary, romance, funny, sad, books and series I have read in a very long time.
