Your book inspired me in writing my own e-book, Helms!
As soon as I started this book, I connected immediately to the fun, and easy to read writing style, as well as the heroine who I just knew would soon have a very different view on life. Despite having little in common with Anna at the beginning of the book, I liked her immediately as she just seemed like one of those people who’d never experienced anything bad in her life, and was certain in her future. Close minded maybe, but it was a naivety that had me feeling sad for her, because I just knew that it wouldn’t last for long.
What I really loved about this story was the emotion behind it. It was a great fun read, and I laughed out loud at so many parts, as the author just had such a witty writing style that I adored, yet when it came to Anna’s money situation, I really felt for her, and admired the way that she did everything she could to help her dad, and didn’t once complain to him. I could feel her pain at her mother’s betrayal to both her and her father, and it made me really admire her as a character for taking charge and trying to make the best of her situation.
Even though this book is short, it was paced perfectly, and I really felt the character and story development grew at a natural, unhurried pace. Anna was a very real character, and I loved Gavin’s introduction to the story and how he was a huge part in helping Anna appreciate pleasure in the little things in life, and not in their expense. I liked the gradual progression of Anna’s realisation that she could be happy where she was, and I loved how honest she was with Gavin about having a boyfriend back home.Read more ›
Anna was a likeable character and grew over the course of the story. Gavin was a sweet book boyfriend, he was also a kindergarten teacher *let the swooning commence*. I wish I got to know Gavin more, the romance was a small sub-plot as Anna's situation and new circumstances were at the forefront.
I loved Bianca, her no-nonsense attitude had me laughing and I really can't wait for her book. Anna needed real friends who wouldn't judge her circumstances, she found that with Natalie and Bianca and Bianca was always on hand with great advice!
"Talk or don’t talk to him—I won’t push. But if he’s impacting you this much, you shouldn’t ignore that to stay with someone who doesn’t put a tingle in your vajingle.”
"That was hot. I almost had an O just watching you two."
I liked the message behind the story; it took Anna losing her wealth for her to evaluate her life and her attitude. She had to work hard in order to make ends meet and in turn she realised life was more fulfilling this way. Sure we all know that but for a New Adult book, it was a good message. I love the cover; I think it captures Anna perfectly. I just thought the story would have an edgier feel to go with it.
This was my first book by Rhonda Helms, I thought it was very well written, my interest was held throughout the story.Read more ›
Anna is a resilient character, taking care of her father, who sinks into depression, reigniting old friendships and finding a job at a local school where she connects with her first love, Gavin.
Although only a novella Rhonda Helms allows the reader to see a development in Anna's character, from the materialistic young woman at the start of the story, to the caring, unselfish and homely Anna in the latter part of One Broke Girl. The reader is able to establish a connection with her and her friends, Bianca and Natalie, who are fun and unpretentious.
One Broke Girl has friendship, romance, family drama and great writing. Perfect to curl up with on a sunny afternoon!
I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
