Cute Book if You Like Fluff!

Scot on the Rocks (or How I Survived My Ex-Boyfriend's Wedding with My Dignity Ever-So-Slightly Intact) by Brenda Janowitz (pgs 304) is published by Red Dress Ink, a division of Harlequin. I started reading these books when they first came out, and get a book a month directly from the publisher. Most are really cute, but I definitely have to be in the mood for one.

Manhattan attorney Brooke Miller seems to have everything going for her. A great high-paying job (if you don't mind working till 9 o'clock ever night and most weekends), a wonderful Scottish boyfriend that is going to pop the question any day now, and a gorgeous apartment. So what goes wrong? Said boyfriend breaks up with Brooke because he decides to marry someone else! Said apartment just happens to be Douglas's. So not only is Brooke out of a relationship, she's out of a home! And all this just days before her ex-boyfriend's wedding -- to Hollywood's latest "IT" girl. A wedding that she was supposed to be attending with HER fiance!! So what's a girl to do?? Brooke comes up with a plan that involves her best friend Jack wearing a Kilt and getting her wonderful, gorgeous (albeit cheating) Scottish man back!

OK....so I had the book figured out by Chapter 2. I still enjoyed it. I mean, it makes you FEEL GOOD when all sorts of bad things happen to a person and in the end, they win out. That's why people READ "Chick Lit". To know that the "fairy tale" ending is out there! It gives them hope....and a bit of comic relief. Scot on the Rocks was pure fluff. If you don't expect more than that, it's a very enjoyable book. 3.75/5
