These are my Happily Ever After Novel Thoughts…
Gemma is twenty-five and looking for love in the busy city of Manhattan. Though she does meet and kiss a lot of frogs, there is a guy out there for her. She is feisty, independent, and in love with her little piece of the island. Her dream job does sound like a dream until you realize how catty and backstabbing her coworkers can be.
She knows all of the lines to make the frogs blanche and run away in fear. There are some that seems perfect, until the second date. At least the ones that can make it to a second date.
I loved her! Gemma knows exactly what she wants out of life and is determined to get it. She is a lover of expensive shoes, fashion, her friends, and Manhattan. If she could find her prince, her fairytale would be complete.
This book is funny and a bit emotional, but overall a happy and light. I was able to read it in a few hours as it was pretty fast paced and intriguing.
Grab this book and go on the search of Gemma’s Happily Ever After with her, kissing and laughing at the frogs in Manhattan.
To be honest with you, I didn’t finish this book, I wanted to fight through it, I just couldn’t. I had someone else who finished it tell me about it and I’m glad I stopped where I did, this book just wasn’t for me.
This book reminded me of multiple romantic comedies I have read or seen over the past few decades, From the Devil Wears Prada, to the Wedding Planner and The Ugly Truth.
There were some good moments that I really enjoyed while there were a few things that drove me insane, but really I think that’s because this girl was a New Yorker through and through and as a born southern woman, we are not nearly this crass. She just made senseless decisions that I couldn’t understand. I mean really who complains about about walking eight blocks in high heels? Carry a bag and put your damn high heels in there and walk in tennis shoes! It’s not rocket science, use your brain.
I liked Oliver much more than our h, that girl annoyed me to death. I like that he was awkward and wasn’t like every other hero we are reading, but that’s about the only part of this that I enjoyed.
Check out this novel and see if you can find your prince.
You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy’s boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
