While I was reading the manuscript for Playing It Safe, I found myself snorting with laughter as Julia entertained me with her hilarious escapades. Whether she’s lusting after the fifty-year-old UPS guy (he has really nice calves!) or accidentally planning her ex’s engagement party, Julia puts her heart, and her sharp tongue, into everything she does. It’s not her fault she’s still single. Or that the one legitimate crush she’s had in years was actually pursuing her best friend not too long ago. Or even that her ex is now back in the picture, despite his being most definitely engaged.
When it comes time to pick between Julia’s two love interests, Barbie knows just the perfect guy for this imperfect but lovable heroine—and lucky for us, she has a fun and very sexy ride to happily ever after. This is a fabulous read for those who love their romance on the raucous side, and with a heaping side of I-can’t-believe-she-just-said-that laughter.
