Overview

The star of The Bachelor, Dancing With The Stars, and special correspondent for Good Morning America shares her story with warmth, enthusiasm, and humor.

Best known as the girl who was proposed to by The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and then dumped on national TV six weeks later, Melissa Rycroft immediately turned her life around. Now married to her original love, Tye Strickland, and expecting her first child, Melissa shares her “Cinderella” story of overcoming heartbreak and finding happiness.
Melissa Rycroft got her start on the CMT reality TV series Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team and was selected for the 2006-2007 NFL Season. That’s when her personal life first fell apart, and the man that she was in love with broke up with her. To help her get over her heartbreak and overcome depression, her friends nominated her to participate as a contestant on The Bachelor. When Mesnick revealed that he was breaking his engagement off with her because he chose the wrong girl, she garnered a lot of respect for handling the shock with such grace and decorum even though she was angry and heartbroken. Two days later, Melissa clinched a spot on Dancing With The Stars, placing third in the competition, and reconciled with her true love. In a “girlfriend to girlfriend” voice readers love, Melissa shares entertaining stories and valuable survival tips from a woman who has “been there and back!”

I liked this book and it was interesting to hear her side of the story! *****BUYER BEWARE**** This book is reported to have 256 pages for 11.99 (which I think is a lot for an ebook) but it only really has 186 pages!!! I have tried repeatedly to get Barnes and Noble to do something about this and they just give the runaround and tell me to reload the book to get all the pages. Well, that is not the problem! I read the book and it is complete at only the 186 pages sent. Too bad I couldn't switch to amazon, I never used to have problems like this with them.

I started out wanting to learn a little more about the beautiful dancer I watched on "Dancing With The Stars". The book is very good. I was pleased to find that Melissa is a good writer and a good storyteller. I read the majority of the book in one evening and night and finished the last forty pages the next morning. The reason for the fast reading is the book held my interest. I didn't want to put it down. I was eager to get to the next chapter and find out what was going to happen to Melissa next and how the book ended. The most insightful thing I learned from Melissa is her good relationship advice. Melissa's honest, detailed, well-explained expressions of her thoughts and feelings gave me a deeper appreciation of my wife. That's right: I'm a guy and I read Melissa's book, and the simple best thing I gained from reading Melissa's book is to have greater respect for my wife's feelings. Whether you're a fan of Melissa in general or a "Dancing With the Stars" fan or "The Bachelor" fan, I think this book has something for pretty much everyone and you will enjoy it.

Surely the correspondent BookBumHI if off the point with her complaint about the number of pages. I have found that the number of pages in an e-Book depends on the font size used to view the book. The number is not fixed as it is in a printed book.

Since I had to rate it, I give it one star because I had to. Reading this story just reminded me of a girl hooked on a guy that she couldn't have and pretending to be a friend when she wanted more. Then she goes on to become famously dumped on the Bachelor and when her ex finds out, he then has an epiphany. One that I think he was just looking for the fame! I seriously doubt that he wanted to be with her because he loved her. Just a bad reading about her one sad serious relationship. Wish I could get my money back.
