The girl code "Chicks before d*cks" should include that no friend can steal another friend's boyfriend—or marry them.
When Ashton Carter's "good idea at the time" revenge plan lands her in hot water, she never expected to see her ex again—especially in court. A few thousand dollars in damages later, she snags a job as a phone sex operator and seeks out a roommate to help fund her "stay out of jail" expenses. Having a roommate should've been helpful—except when they turn out to be the hot, yet douchebag mechanic working on her car.
When Ashton learns that her new roommate has been the sexy phone sex caller, lines begin to blur between real life and fantasy. It was supposed to be a no-strings-attached situation; neither of them were ready for love again. When a surprise visit from an ex shakes their forming foundation with an ultimatum, Ashton is forced to face the truth of her feelings and make a choice. With her budding relationship and livelihood at stake, Ashton has to untangle the lines of reality and fantasy in a last ditch effort to protect her heart.

What's a girl to do when her supposed boyfriend drops her for one of her friends? When a revenge scheme goes (waaaay) too far, Ashton Carter finds herself saddled with an enormous debt and forced to take a job as a phone sex operator when she figures out that no one will hire her after how she behaved or what she did in retaliation.
So, let's get to it.
Likes: I really liked the story concept that Ashton's new roommate is none other than her sexy phone sex caller. And I really liked O'Shea. I found him to be incredibly likeable and patient. Ashton's best friends, Ava and Alex, were great characters, definitely girls you want to have around when things get tough. Their personality differences really helped to round out the story.
Dislikes: I had a really hard time liking Ashton until toward the end of the story when she finally lightened up but until then, her over-the-top aggressiveness and downright ugliness with her sarcasm was just too much for me and I found myself speeding through some of her scenes. And while it's listed as a romantic comedy, I didn't find it that comedic.
All that said, I found the story entertaining and ideal for the mature YA on up but there are sexual situations, which may not be suitable for all readers.
