It's a quick read, and even though the 3 main characters are annoying in the beginning (you wonder how they can be so stupid), you do become invested in the story and in finding out how they are going to fix (or in one case, ruin) their lives.
What really annoyed me, however, was the constant references to brand names. Did I really need to know the brand name of EVERY piece of clothing Liza put on for a date, including her bracelets and fragrance, not to mention her shoes and bag?? I don't mind a brand name here and there, but in this book they were constant, and the book started to read more like a luxury goods catalog.
The ending was a bit rushed and disappointing. As I got towards the end of the book I actually wondered if I was missing a bunch of pages, because I couldn't believe the story was going to be over in just 10 pages. The Page Six style epilogue wrapped things up just a little too neatly.
There's a difference between a "smut novel" and smut. This was nothing but smut. And while well-written, too much was left hanging and unexplained, which made for a very unsatisfying read.
Right from the beginning you just KNOW that our three leading characters, Liza, Kellyanne and Billie are heading for a huge fall - but somehow I just could not wait to find out just how low they would all need to go before they figured out that the road they were on - WAS THE WRONG ONE!!!!
If the old saying is true, then you understand why these three ended up finding each other.
What I also loved about this book is the fact that the girls, although confused and extremely sexual, still managed to convey a strong sense of girl power!!! and I am all for that. Interestingly enough, the men in this storyline are definitely backstories and the main focus is on the females - kind of like Sex and the Story - which this book reminded me of (except that I did not feel the love among the three friends all that much). This story was told with humor and honesty and although I can't say that I loved any of the main characters - they were wonderfully written and I totally enjoyed living through them.
Although this book may be shocking to some, there is actually a morale to this story. I also thought this book had the absolute best opening lines...caught my attention IMMEDIATELY.
If you are looking for a great chick lit read, then run to get this one.

A decadent rock star, feminist commentator, and sugar daddy's mistress share a place in the Hamptons and... things happen. Unabashedly trashy, and I loved it.Published on December 27, 2013 by Ennie
I think I am in love with J.J. Salem for he truly writes a book that captivates you from start to finish. First I had ordered The Strip by the same author. Read morePublished on March 7, 2013 by Paula Emeigh
If you want a easy read for the holidays this book provides - it is trashy, fun and entertaining. Looking forward to more books from Salem - enjoyable read.Published on May 7, 2012 by calico2101
I am a huge fan of chick lit and this book is definitely as raunchy as it gets. It has drug use, sex, politics, everything that goes on in the real world today. Read morePublished on July 26, 2011 by Amazon Customer
