Overview

Los Angeles es un lugar inhóspito, un sitio donde la madeja de autopistas y la arraigada hipocresía pueden hacer que una chica se sienta muy sola, no importa cuan maravilloso sea el clima o cuan atractivas sean las ropas del centro comercial South Coast Plaza. Con estilos y actitudes completamente diferentes, Marcella, Olivia y Alexis intentan abrirse camino en Los Angeles y conseguir el éxito profesional y el amor. Pero primero deben encontrarse...para poder ayudarse en sus empeños y planear cuan divertido será el camino al éxito.

Marcella es una atractiva e inteligente actriz de televisión, que a duras penas puede disfrutar de la vida que ha conquistador para si, o de su propio cuerpo, que nunca es lo bastante perfecto. La vida Olivia gira en torno a su pequeño hijo Jack. Se aferra tanto a el y a su papel de madre que casi consigue olvidar la espantosa experiencia por la que paso su familia cuando ella era niña. Alexis, con su espíritu vivaz y abundantes carnes, es una hermosa representante de músicos con mucha clase, pero con tan escasas autoestima que apenas llenaría un monedero Prada. ¿Y los chicos de sus vidas? Marcella está harta de que todos se arrojen siempre sobre ella, el único varón en la vida de Olivia es su hijo, y Alexis aun sigue buscando...no un chico, sino un verdadero hombre.

Ligera, divertida, tierna y sexy, Jugando con chicos es un novela inolvidable sobre la amistad y el amor.

"Three very different Latina women vow to bring Los Angeles to its collective knees in this funny, guilty pleasure of a novel . . . [A] heartfelt piece of escapism."—Publishers Weekly
