My Rating:  ★★★

My Review:

The premise behind this novel is hilarious. I can just picture it. To better illustrate the effects of this pact Taylor switches perspectives between the characters but keeps each one clear. It makes the story even more entertaining because you know what everyone is thinking and how everything comes about.

There is a definite forward flow to the writing in this short novel. Some of the dialogue does become a bit forced and doesn’t flow like the spoken word. Overall, the story needs a little bit more editing to help with the overall flow, thus allowing the reader to fully immerse themselves in this otherwise entertaining story.

The characters in this novel were quite well developed. You really got to know the main characters, and the supporting characters were given enough development to hold their own in the story without overshadowing anyone else.

As a whole this is a very cute story. Taylor takes a topic that is very real to many women and gives it a very comical spin.
