What's a girl to do when she accidentally dials Brazil and racks up a mobile phone charge in excess of four grand? Why take a job in a brothel as a receptionist to pay it off.
Likes: As someone who both fought and acquiesced to parental involvement in the planning of my wedding, I admit to thoroughly enjoying the motherly meddling that was taking place and more than once giggled (somewhat maniacally). Ah, wedding planning: "It felt as though I'd been mown down by a herd of wild buffalo and left bleeding and battered, wondering where the f*** they'd come from." I also really enjoyed the camaraderie amongst the women.
Dislikes: The beginning of the story dragged for me and I kept wondering when it would pick up. It did.
Overall, this is a fun story. While I knew what the premise was before I began reading, I still found the interactions between the different characters enjoyable and I loved when Brooke found herself and started standing up for herself against the bullies. This story has a bit of everything: Shopaholic, bullies, friendship, and of course, love.
