At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills.
Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it’s time for Jan to grow up.
Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it’s time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she’ll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?
Between Boyfriends is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up… but not necessarily in that order.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Between Boyfriends was a little slow getting started and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because the main character, Jan, is rich, spoiled, and selfish but it turned out to be a good book.
As the story progresses, Jan matures quite a bit and I enjoyed reading about her growth as well as her thought processes. There is so much for her to deal with and, although at first she tends to just hide in bed when something bad happens, she eventually figures things out and does the right thing. At first, I couldn’t believe how unsupportive her friends could be until I thought about it. Why would they support her when she’d always been selfish?
Sarka-Jonae Miller has a good sense of humor. It was fun to read about Jan tripping over herself or cutting the knots out of her hair instead of having the patience to work the tangles out. How many times I’ve wanted to do that!
I recommend Between Boyfriends, especially if you enjoy chick lit.
