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.
Although I thought this was a good book, I had a difficult time relating to the main character-Jan. I’m not sure if it was her personality or the way she reacted to certain events, but I just wanted to slap her and say wake up! No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t feel sorry for her during the novel- to me it just didn’t matter. I was glad at the end when she finally learned to stand on her own two feet. The book was very well written and gives a good account of Jan’s life as a juvenile girl. It’s an easy read and would probably be enjoyed by many even though I didn’t particularly enjoy the book.
Overall, I would give this book 3 out of 5 hippos.
