Bella Shaughnessy is addicted to lipstick with names like My Chihuahua Bites and Kiss My Lips—an occupational hazard, since she works at Salon de Paolo, her family-run beauty salon, along with her four half-brothers and sisters. The owner is her father, Lucky Shaughnessy, a gregarious, three-times-divorced charmer with Donald Trump hair who is obsessed with all things Italian. After Bella’s own marriage flames out spectacularly when her half-sister runs off with her husband, Bella decides she has seen enough of the damage love can do. She makes a vow: no more men. But then Bella meets a cute entrepreneur, and despite their bickering, they can’t seem to stay away from each other. A small, well-tressed dog also finds her way into Bella’s life, and her heart, and she decides to chance that, too. When the whole clan heads to Atlanta for a big Southern wedding, sparks fly—in a summer blowout no one will ever forget. Download and start listening now!

    " I'm started this last night and, much as I hate to say it, I am not enjoying this one - I have loved all her other books. It must just be where I "am" right now. I'll keep trying til I can't anymore. "
