    Hysterical!!

    I LOVED this book!! The writer has a great sense of humor and no book has ever made me laugh the way this one did. The story was interesting and kept me turning page after page. I would have definitely given this book 5 stars, if not for the abrupt ending. The book could have continued another couple hundred pages, since the author had woven a number of scenarios into the story that she could have run with - or perhaps I was just enjoying the book so much I couldn't bear for it to end. Either way, this book is definitely worth the download. I can't wait to read more by this author. Great job, Dee DeTarsio!

    The plot wasn't all that enticing but the way it was written was

    The plot wasn't all that enticing but the way it was written was great. I laughed out loud quite a few times. I loved the metaphors so much that I wish I had thought of them myself. I will look for more by this author!

    An Obvious First Attempt

    I picked up 'Til Somebody Loves You because I was intrigued by the title. But that's really as good as the book would get.

    She's an ad writer for a marketing firm and he's their extra-slick, superstar salesman. Mary Beth knows he's out of her league but she won't let that stop her... when she really should.

    I understand that it's supposed to be a romantic comedy but Mary Beth (heroine) seems to be lacking in common sense and the object of her affection (Dean Dineno [say that three times fast!]) is lacking in common decency.

    The writer gives us no clue as to why Mary Beth would fantasize about Dean and its possibly because the only thing he actually has going for him are his looks. There's a lack of creativity in the invention of product names and I was offended at the author's failure to try.

    In the end, we're left to watch Mary Beth abandon her initial quest and seemingly jump head first in to the next one. But even if there is a sequel, you won't find me reading it.

    Quick, fun, and kinda hot

    The character was certainly one of this day and age, with a huge crush and even larger imagination. The perfume was fun to daydream about even for an older gal like me. Read it for pleasure!

    Not a bad short read!

    This book was definitely not a bad read! It is short only a few chapters I read it in about 1.5 hours give or take, characters are not bad story line is good. For free it is worth reading if you are looking for a cute story about a love crazed girl!!

    Get What You Paid For

    This is a short love (obsession) story that was worth the non-existent price. A woman is madly in love with an attractive co-worker only to discover he is spineless and not worth her day (or night) dreams. To add to the story, a perfume from a buisness deal supposedly leads to a romantic encounter between the main character and her dream man (who actually dates the boss). The main character's own confidence is actually responsible for the alleged connection with her co-worker and she somewhat realizes this at the end. Not the most exciting story but hey it is free.
