DIY Television and Romance Together in One Great B

by Norabee on Sep 3, 2008

I enjoyed this book very much. It was unique to pair television interior decorating with a storyline human enough to keep the reader interested ? job well done! This is a fun tale of Lily Allen, thirty-something, single and size 14 with no shortage of love-interests ? just as it should be! She has just gotten a great new job as a designer on a TV reality show called Swap/Meet, where two people get their rooms re-done and a personal makeover and then are paired up after the show to see if any romantic sparks develop. Unfortunately, Lily?s love life is sketchy, at best. When the story begins, she?s making a hasty exit after having a-sex-on-the-first-date night with a guy that she doesn?t know very well ? she?s embarrassed and ashamed and leaves, determined to never see him again, besides she knows she?s going to be very busy with the brand new show and her personal decorating business. Before you know it, she?s discovering intimate details with her co-workers, but still not finding a relationship. Although casual sex is dangerous and not to be taken lightly, it was nice to see that this ?bigger? girl was obviously very attractive and basically comfortable with her size. I also agree with another reviewer that the girl on the cover of the book could have matched Lily better, as the author mentions more than once that Lily has curly hair! As the story continues, not only is the TV show a success, but Lily begins to really know herself and figures out why she?s been settling for those brief encounters. This was good chick lit and a fast read and definitely a unique look at ?love and the single girl?.
