My Review:


In typical Kristan Higgins fashion, this book was breaking my heart in the midst of giggling and laughing out loud. I adored both of these characters. They both have such deep issues despite the fact that their relationship has been such a surface one for six years. I think that's why the heartbreak is such a prevalent feeling when it comes to their interactions. As the reader, you know what all is happening in each of their lives and it hurts to watch them dealing with each other on such a superficial level.


Parker has grown up as a child of wealth and privilege. At the age of ten, her father cheated on her mother with the babysitter. Parker was the one who caught them and her life and her relationship with her father was irrevocably changed...and it was not for the better.


Parker's father is a powerful Wall Street mogul and, as such, has his own little entourage. There are two men in particular who always accompany him. Parker calls them Thing One and Thing Two. Thing One just happens to be James. It was as much of a surprise to him as anyone when he was hired by Harry and taken under his wing. They are friends and have a close relationship to the point where Harry claims James as the son he never had...not exactly music to Parker's ears. She wants a close relationship with her father again, but only sees him becoming close to James.


When Harry's life falls apart, he finds himself going to jail and stripped of all his wealth, including Parker and her son's trustfunds which she had entrusted to him. James has always felt a special connection to Parker although she obviously doesn't reciprocate his feelings. But when her life falls apart, he steps up to help.


One of the things that Kristan Higgins does so well with her writing is create wonderful characters. Her characters are real, deep, sarcastic, and self-depricating. They are also so lovable. I think that Parker is one of my favorites that Kristan has ever created. She's a children's author and pitched a completely sarcastic series that actually got picked up. So she ended up writing an incredibly successful kids series about some saccharin sweet 8 year olds that she literally hates. The book starts with her finishing the series with the final book, but the characters are still alive in her head...and they talk to her...and she talks back to them. OMG, it is so hilarious!!! Between that and the ideas that she has for new series'....I kept reading those aloud to my husband....so freaking funny!!


This book is just wonderful. Honestly, I challenge you to pick up ANY Kristan Higgins book and not completely fall in love. She has a completely different writing voice. It is entertaining and funny and poignant. I ADORE HER BOOKS. I just wish that she could write faster!!! Another fabulous, fabulous book. I think that this is my favorite of hers yet!!!

Bad sample

Just read the sample and deleted the sample as the sample was not enough to get me hooked...moreover the sample made me not even want to check out other books by the author
