Garbage

In the immortal words of those guys from In Living Color...haaated it!

The author is a talented writer, I'll give her that. But 500+ pages of characters that are deeply and truly terrible people? "But they chaaaaange" is the whiney undercurrent of the book. Into wha...
In the immortal words of those guys from In Living Color...haaated it!

The author is a talented writer, I'll give her that. But 500+ pages of characters that are deeply and truly terrible people? "But they chaaaaange" is the whiney undercurrent of the book. Into what? Into older jerks?

Francine was a spoiled brat who turned into a bad mother, surrounding herself with a tiny group of emotionally stunted enablers, only to use them all for professional gain and free babysitting?

And Dallas (eff that Dallie sh*t...no grown man is going to voluntarily adopt a nickname that, in verb form, means "to tickle your pickle"), who was a self-proclaimed man-wh*re but too much of a chicken sh*t to divorce his trailer park queen. Did anyone else get REALLY tired of the surley, misunderstood man routine?

Let's not forget that the second Francine saw her former lover's ding-a-ling, she seemed to forget she had a child. My baby's sad because his biological father is being an utter pr*ck? Oh, he'll get over it. He's smart, after all! Have I mentioned his IQ? Wait three pages. It'll come up again, I promise. The kid is missing amongst hundreds of strangers on an island? Pssh, that means I can sneak off for a few seconds alone with the sperm donor!

Anyone want my copy? It's free, but still dripping with my disdain

    Amazing!

    This novel was awesome! It was hilariously funny, sexy, and fun. The world simply fell apart for Francie, whom I will admit is hard to like in the beginning, but you'll LOVE her by the end. It's just plain wonderful...I couldn't stop smiling when I finished.

    the best ever!

    i love romance books. i have read most of the romance novels ever created, even ones that were written centuries ago, for i am a collector too. This book has a great story and plot, characters larger than life. in this book SEP played with plot's game and she didnt get lost in the game. It's because of Fancy Pants i bought all of hers trying to find in my mind's eye, Francie, Dallie and Teddy, all over again. I even started to help 'strays', i found out they weren't only in imagination its truly real. anyway, i have collected all of SEP's books and until now, fancy pants is still the best. i have read it many times and more :) i hope you guys feel the same.

    Very Good

    I have to admit that Francesca was a little annoying the beginning but that it her character so it didn't bother me much. I was glad it wasn't a 'they fall in love in 2 weeks and live happily ever after' novel. There was an actual story to tell with more than one interesting diversion. It was an excellent read but if you can't stomach long books or truly life-like characters don't read it.
