Jo Waldman lives to her own soundtrack working by day while pursuing her music career in NYC’s downtown clubs at night. So when Jo is fired and her boyfriend breaks up with her, Jo doesn’t get upset she just wants to rage. Dusting off her computer, Jo writes a blog entry, pouring her heart out about the shortcomings of love. But as Jo hits “publish,” she accidentally sends a mass e-mail to the entire mailing list for her former almost-famous band The Lonely Hearts Club, announcing to everybody that she's been brutally dumped. To her surprise, supportive e-mails start flowing in many of them from complete strangers. Apparently, her anti-love rant has struck a chord. The Lonely Hearts Club Blog develops a huge following and Jo becomes an icon for all things anti-love. Now the poster girl for lonely hearts and writing music again, Jo has one problem: the web programmer developing her site is simply dreamy. Jo's never been very good at depriving herself of anything, but if this budding romance is exposed, she'll be revealed as an anti-love fraud and risk losing the fans who have found a voice in her music.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Jo is a daughter who has received quite a bit of help from her parents and at the time where the story begins her father is ready to cut the strings and have her try to live on her own. At the same time she has a boyfriend who wants other things in life - namely not her and her job situation is quite poor, so Jo must work on all areas in this book and hopefully come out on top! First, I love that love wasn't the only speed bump in Jo's road of life - the job and family were also issues that she had to deal with. I felt like the author perfectly combined all the dramas where nothing overshadowed the other, but it also didn't feel too dramatic.
