This is the first time I read anything by Julia London, but it won't be my last. I am an avid reader who loves finding new authors. And I couldn't be happier to find this one. Material Girl was funny, warm and entertaining. I can't wait for the next book in the trilogy to come out.

This book held me from page 1. Excellent writing, loved the characters and cannot wait for her next book. Each persons personality come through loud and clear.

i wish I could give it less than 1 star,. It was a struggle to get through this book. Its really hard to get into a story when the main character makes you hate her and the dialouge sounds like a couple of 15 year old kids flirting. Dont waste your time or money.

What an obnoxious main character! I don't care if she learns her lesson, i don't have the patience to spend another minute reading such a crappy, useless book-and i am only on page 66! Do not waste your time or money reading such a silly, silly book about a woman you would never want to spend 10 minutes with

My first Julia London story. Very well done, except for some minor type and punctuation trash from digitizing -- not much worse than some print paperbacks I've bought. Look forward to reading the next one in the Lear sisters series soon.

Enjoyed this contemporary romance -- characters were real and sexy! Will definitely continue with the series.

I love this trilogy! Julia London has written the books based on three sisters. They make appearances in each others books, but each book focuses mostly on one of the sisters. These are the best contemporary romance novels I have ever read.The first in the series "Material Girl" revolves around Robin Lear, a spoiled brat of a girl who has her life turned upside down when her father announces he is dying and plans to make big changes while he does so.Lear Transport Industries is the company that Robin Lear has been working for, not so much working as putzing around the office. Her father owns the company and is disgusted with how his family and his company has gotten away from him. His girls don't know the meaning of work, and he ends up doing everything himself for the company. He demotes Robin to work below her ex-boyfriend Evan Iverson, who by the way wants to win her heart back.When things seem as though they couldn't get worse, Robin lands herself in the pokey for burning down her office -she left the coffee pot on- and meets a strapping young fellow by the name of Jake Manning. Robin has hired him to renovate her house and Jake finds himself oddly attracted and put off by this woman all at the same time. The money Jake makes doing work on Robins house helps him pay bills and raise his teenage son Cole, but he finds himself losing focus whenever he is around the Material Girl.
