Holly Frick has just endured the worst kind of breakup: the kind where you're still in love with the person leaving you. While her wounds are still dangerously close to the surface, her happily married best friend confesses over a bottle of wine that she is this close to having an affair. And another woman comes to Holly for advice about her love life--with Holly's ex!
Holly decides that if everyone around her can take pleasure wherever they find it, so will she. As any self-respecting 30ish New York woman would do, she brings two males into her life: a flawed but endearing dog, and a good natured, much younger lover. She's soon entangled in a web of emails, chance meetings, and misguided good intentions and must forge an entirely new path to Nirvana.
My Review: Seems lately I seem to be reading more and more books with an "EX" in them. Which is some what funny to me, considering I have an EX-husband. I could definitely relate to Holly yet as I continued to read I found myself unable to connect with her. I really didn't like her so called best friend Amanda. I didn't find her to be a friend to her at all. If anything she was more of a hindrance to her. I was really hoping to enjoy this book and I really didn't.
