There's something magical about Billy Nolan. It's not just that the Brooklyn bar owner is wickedly handsome; it is also that any woman he dates and dumps - and he dumps them all - immediately goes on to marry the next man she meets. But Kate Jameson is immune to his charms. She left Brooklyn for upward-mobility in Manhattan at the first chance she got, and she's not about to fall for some cad from the old neighborhood. But when her best friend Bina's engagement is broken off, Kate hatches a plan: all she has to do is get Billy to date and dump Bina. Then they'll wait for Bina's wayward fiance to return for the magic to happen. But the one thing Kate hasn't counted on is how Billy feels about the whole plot - and how she begins to feel about Billy. She may have changed her style, but her roots are showing.

Listener Opinions

    " I loved this book, starting from the title. Easily predictable but excellant scenes describing school and child related issues all mixed into a romance. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 2/7/2014

    " I'm having a bad run, I think, probably because I'm trying to find good contemporary romance and I'm not seeing it. This book was so boring I couldn't keep going. I started skimming furiously after chapter 6, in which we still haven't met Billy and all that's happened so far is Kate's gone to work, bantered with her gay friend, gotten a manicure, and gone to dinner with her boring boyfriend and gay friends. I thought things might get ineresting when her friend comes crashing into her life, sobbing because of a bad breakup, but then it takes 4 more chapters to get the story (while the phone rings off the hook) and we still haven't met Billy. The setup looked interesting from the book blurb, but 10 chapters in nothing has happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 2/4/2014

    " This is what I call perfect chick-lit vacation reading. Fun, romantic, but the writing still makes you feel like your reading something that is at a base level supporting the brain cells you have. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juliette | 2/3/2014

    " A perfect "eye candy" book that has nothing under the surface, but helps the reader forget their troubles. I read this while pregnant and couldn't read anything serious, scary, or sad (stupid hormones). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/1/2014

    " I enjoyed this book immensely but I hate that it ended when it did. Although the characters found resolution, I don't feel like I found resolution as a reader. I want to know what happened "when its time for the first laundry" so to speak. The only real complaint I can put forth about this book is that the ending seemed rushed and the novel felt incomplete to me. I love Olivia's writing and I liked the book but the swift ending left me feeling a little disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/24/2014

    " ? Did I read this? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dita | 1/21/2014

    " Funny!!! The characters are hilarious! If you are a girl.. more over a single women, you will sympathize with the characters in this book... Guys, just a warning.. this is part of the so- called Chick Lit! Great with a Lemonade in hand on the beach in Baha.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 1/17/2014

    " This book was terrible. I read the first two chapters and couldn't stand it beyond that. The whole tone was cheesy and contrived. Bleh! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annelies | 1/13/2014

    " Luchtig vrouwenboek, graag gelezen in oktober maar nu in november ben ik al haast vergeten waarover dit boek ging. Tja. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney Oaks | 1/10/2014

    " Hilarious! I have already recommended this book to several people! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 10/19/2013

    " I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book, I thought it was really well written and the story was intreresting . "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 7/14/2013

    " Ugh. way too pretentious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison Beall | 5/16/2013

    " Schlock. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerri Clements | 4/23/2013

    " A nice easy read, a little slow to start but worth persevering with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly Harper | 1/13/2013

    " Not my favorite Goldsmith book but still very very readable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seriousbookworm | 12/8/2012

    " This book is on the same order as Good Luck Chuck, only told from the female skeptic point of view. It was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 11/22/2012

    " Fun read a little slow. Great ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 11/9/2012

    " Cute premise; writing could be better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neal | 5/16/2012

    " I thought this was pretty average "chick lit" It isn't bad, but it isn't all that great. It has it's amusing moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith Bodgas | 12/8/2011

    " Very cute, though slightly predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C. Ohara | 8/28/2011

    " It's one of those books that I hate to love because it doesn't really get "real" good until after the middle. But I still liked curling up in bed and reading it after everyone was asleep. The characters were great and Billy sounds like a dream. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judi | 8/2/2011

    " I love Olivia Goldsmith, she is funny yet poignant. She wrote the First Wives Club and I think she understands women very well and can write about them so you can relate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 7/28/2011

    " Had a surprise or two, but over all, it was extremely predictable and mushy. Was pretty disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessika | 5/11/2011

    " It's similar to that movie with Dane Cook- Good Luck Chuck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faithangel366 | 5/10/2011

    " I liked it but the main charecter in the begining kinda annoyed me. :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 4/24/2011

    " I really miss Olivia Goldsmith! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy T | 4/12/2011

    " I enjoyed this chick-lit novel. I figured out the ending early on in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zhana | 4/5/2011

    " The story was not believable. The main character was such an annoyance for me. The ending was bood mainly because I didn't expect the things that happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 10/7/2010

    " Not one of my favorite Goldsmiths but a good read. Points out the problems of women's prisons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 2/9/2010

    " This book was like candy - made you chew a little, but was mostly a sweet nothing. Read it in one night - definitely a fun diversion. Highly recommend this if you're looking for an evening of frivolous female empowerment. Best read in a bubble bath of with a mug of hot cocoa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 naree | 5/22/2009

    " You could call this the girl version of the Green Mile... but with more sass. A bit of dark humor mixed with sweet revenge, but overall a fast and fun read. I appreciated the pithy opening quotes, and it left me wanting to learn more about the women in the prison system. "
