Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez's first novel caused a sensation when it was published last year. Listeners flocked to the story of six friends in Boston because Valdes-Rodriguez created utterly fresh voices and characters.

In Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez's delicious new novel, three friends, each a Latina in her late 20s, take Los Angeles by storm. Marcella, Olivia, and Alexis have bonded not only over trouble with men but about how tough it is to make life work in L.A. no matter what you do.

Marcella is a hot young television actress, hardly able to enjoy the life she's bought for herself, and she's certainly not enjoying her body, which is never quite perfect enough. Olivia's tethered to her toddler son and her suburban mommy track so tightly the other girls sometimes cringe. Alexis has a smart mouth, an ample body, and a great job, but about enough self-esteem to fill a Prada card case. The emotional richness and girly fun of the heroines' friendship will delight listeners.

    " Usually I love her books, but this one was very slow to get into...whether it was me, or the book, not sure. About half way through it picked up and I enjoyed it. Less stars for sure, though, than Dirty Girls Social Club (my fav). "

    " The style of writing was cute and humorous but the plot was just so slow. It took me weeks to read this book because I wasn't that excited to read it. "

    " Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, this book was probably her steamiest yet. Only four main charachters, but its juicy and fun. Valdes-Rodriguez's book titles sound a bit raunchy but they aren't as wild as the titles are, but come quite close. I liked this book a lot, I read it in a small month and with all of Valdes-Rodriguez's books, couldn't bare to put it down when i'd get into it. "
