Overview

“A flat-out funny read.” —COSMOPOLITAN

“Smart-alecky…outrageous.” —HOUSTON CHRONICLE

Amy Sherman has it all—a two-bedroom Manhattan apartment, a great job as a publicity director at a major publishing house, and a romantic life that’s…less than robust, but two out of three isn’t bad. She's come a long way from playing second fiddle to spotlight hog and former best friend, Tara Messer. In fact, she's even recovered from walking in on her blond bombshell frenemy in the bedroom, with her fiancée, just before her wedding.

Or so she thought.

Tara, now married to the man who broke Amy's heart, has made a career put of being positively perfect. Of course she's waltzing back into Amy's life on mile-long legs, with a life so Simply Beautiful it got its own book deal—and Amy's gets tapped to be its publicist.

Unable to swallow it all, Amy spits out a tiny little lie. She's engaged. To a handsome, famous mystery writer. Who hates her. If Amy could just get him to play along with the farce, she may survive publishing Tara's book.

But let's not feel so sorry for Amy yet. A dual perspective, laugh-out-loud funny tale of betrayal, forgiveness, and finding new love, Best Enemies proves that no one knows you quite like a best friend.

This book was a waste of time. It started off interesting but later dragged and turned out to be so predictable. I have no interest to read any of the authors other books. The writing style of the author was too corny and the dialog between the characters were not developed or matured.

This book, is about how two best friends became the worst enemies. The main character was engaded to some guy she was seeing for a few years. Comming home from work she ends up catching her best friend sleeping with her fiance. The best friend explains how they didnt mean to hurt her in anyway but they had feelings for each other and was gonna come and talk to the main character about it. The main character ends up canceling the wedding and ending her friendship with her best friend. 4 years has went by and the main character is jogging in the streets of new york city and bumbs into her ex-best friend. Her best friend look really good and probably was having a great life with her ex-fiance. The main character ends up lieing to her ex-best friend saying that she has been dating someone for the last 2 years... The main character is a book publisher at a big company. Later on the book she finds out that her ex-best friend is going to be her new client and would have to sell and publish her book. The main character is tottaly against it because she hates her and she doesn't want to make her ex-best friends life even bettter then her own. The ex-best friend invites the main character over to her new home with her ex-fiance and tell her to bring her long-term boyfriend with her. The main character brings along a client that's an author and is very snobby. She has to lie to her client and saying they are going on a date to watch a movie but they need to stop by this client of her to talk about the book. Which is not true. The ex-fiance and the ex-best friend are inlove with the client that the main character is dating. They love his books. Through out, their visit they end up staying over and have to sleep together in a room that only has 1 bed. well im going to stop now, because basically im telling you the whole story, but this story is full of adventure, love and drama, and you will find out how the main character gets away with all the lies she says to her ex-best friend and her ex-fiance and how she deals with them. Read it its a really good book, i enjoyed it. :)

Best Enemies by Jane Heller (Audiobook) Narrated by Rachel Fulginiti 2.5 Stars - Jealousy, Lies, Envy .. with a hint of romance. This book had more lying than I have seen before in a book. Lies on top of lies. It's a wonder there was a happy ending. Amy was so worried about what Tara thought of her, that much of this book was spent on how she could one-up her. I found it a bit tiresome after awhile and at points, the fact that she was taking things a bit too far on her revenge actually lowered my respect of her. This book did come with a side dish of romance - usually I like it as the main course, however, this one was sweet… once Amy got herself together. The Narrator did a good job on the voices. She was clear and easy to listen too. It was an ok way to pass some time. ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

It's rare that I don't finish a book. I may have done that a handful of times in my 46 years, but I honestly could not stomach the characters in this book. Amy was a complete doormat and wuss. She should have told Tara off a long time ago but instead played into her games over and over again. Tara was a total b@tch. She may have possibly redeemed herself somewhat at the end (according to other reviews) but at that point, the damage was done for me. I did not have an ounce of respect for either of these women. A lot of reviews said that this story was funny, which is why I bought it. I never got that. The 2 main characters were more pathetic than funny. A lot of people liked this book, so maybe it's just me. I tend to like strong characters and this story lacked that for me. Sadly, I will not read anything else from this author.

I got in to this book because I had to read a book for a report. Once I got into this I couldn't put it down. It's an amazing book and Amy is definitely a relate able character. A realistic book with a funny and romantic twist in it. I actually wished I could jump in and join the characters myself. Especially the sexy and mysterious Tony Stiles.

I picked up this book to read on vacation. It was a cute book about best friends that became best enemies over a boy. An easy, enjoyable, relaxing fun read. I have already given it to lots of my friends and they all love it too.

I tend to gravitate back to Jane Heller's novels and enjoy them, and this one didn't dissapoint. But, felt Tara's side was a bit rushed and short. Was miffed she left out the B. in Robert B. Parker. Share it with your friends.

I am usually a Danielle Steel reader, but when I saw this book at the store I thought I'd give Jane Heller a try. I finished the book in a few hours. It was SO different & interesting and shows how things in life can come full circle.
