As far as the characters go, I found Victoria to be a weak woman. She ran home to Mom the moment things got tough and then preceded to spend an inordinate amount of time on the couch. And consequently went back to that state every time something real or perceived happened. Mike could have said a hundred times she was an "amazing woman" which he might have, but that didn't make it any more real.
This was a library book and I really feel like I should be able to get my September pick back. I finished it because I don't ever like to stop reading a book in the middle, but I feel like I might just be a little less smart because of it.
Enjoyable writing style and light-hearted story: a twist on poor, little rich girl.
I even fell in love with the main character, initially a self-involved, shallow snob who evolves into a loving mother and a relatively self-sufficient woman.
If I had one criticism, it would be the happy-ever-after type ending with another man--one of several (including her husband) who pursues her . . . but then I'm not romantic (this book doesn't fall within the romance genre either).
Language: ** (2 out of 5 where 1 = no profanity; 5 = PROFANE.)
Sex: ** (2 out of 5 where 1 = no sex; 5 = porn.)
Violence: * (1 out of 5 where 1 = no violence; 5 = VIOLENT!)
The story line moves along nicely and the portrayal of the wealthy, snooty Victoria who is brought down several pegs was quite good. Some nice humorous banter peppered the story and made you smile. A pleasant read all around, even if her relationship with the FBI agent who is assigned to follow her is unrealistic. I would read other books written by this author.
Are you strong enough to start over? Want to read how she did it?

Except for some typos, this was a truly professionally written book. And I got it for free. How lucky is that?Published 9 months ago by dahliagrower1
I liked the main character her strength. I would have liked to know more of what happened to the husband. It ended too abruptly. There needed to be more to the story.Published 11 months ago by Dennis W. Dodge
Poor plot, poor character development, and poor dialogue. This one is definitely one to delete. Not 'Going for Broke'--it's already broke!Published 16 months ago by Skeeter
This was a great read, but the grammatical mistakes took away from that. If it was edited better I would've given it four stars. Read morePublished 16 months ago by olabeef
