    Enjoyable read

    I recently saw a notice for a blog ARC tour featuring a book by Dakota Cassidy. My little blog doesn¿t have enough followers for me to be able to participate so I passed on entering. However, it made me think about the first book in the series You Dropped a Blonde on Me. I remembered reading it and donating the book to my library after I was finished. I decided to re-read the book and order the second book in the series so I could read that as well.
    You Dropped a Blonde on Me is the story of Maxine Cambridge, the onetime trophy wife of Finley Cambridge, a major car dealer. Maxine was once the face of the dealership commercials but found herself out when she began to show too much mileage. The final crack in the marriage was discovering that her husband was cheating on her again with his secretary who is also the sister of Maxine¿s best friend. Now, Maxine is living with her mother and desperate for a job to support herself and her son. She runs into Campbell Barker, formerly geeky classmate, on her way out of Cluck-Cluck after she has humiliated herself in her job quest.
    If this sounds familiar, it is because it is a tried and true romance novel plotline, but this book is still very enjoyable to read, even for a second time. Maxine is not the typical spunky soon to be ex wife, full of fight and ready to take on the world. She has been beaten down by years of putting her needs behind her husband¿s and trying to be perfect to keep him happy. Maxine has so little self worth that she is afraid to fight for what is rightfully hers and her son¿s because she cannot stand up to her bullying ex. Campbell remembers her as a strong, confident girl and can¿t understand how she has changed so much. Campbell has ex issues of his own but he has been able to put his bad experience behind him. Their romance is full of misunderstandings and hurt feelings but they find that something inside to keep it alive.
    There is a secondary plot involving Lenore, Max¿s best friend and a mysterious man named Adam. Lenore went through her own version of losing her trophy wife status and she is just a fearful as Max about relationships.
    It is a testament to Ms. Cassidy¿s writing skills that a story that has been told before was still interesting. The characters were well drawn and you cared about their lives. I am excited to start the second book, which I will also donate to my library.

    I really enjoyed this book

    I admit the nook price is high, I downloaded this book from my library. I really liked Max and Campbell. There are parts of this book that are just hilarious! I'm looking forward to the next book in the series
