Giveaway: Your Big Break by Johanna Edwards

From the BOB: Dani Myers has become an expert at romantic breakups ever since she was hired to "facilitate" them for clients of Your Big Break, Inc. In other words, she dumps people for money. But company rule #5 (do not get personally involved) is getting harder to obey. One of her dumpees is turning out to be the kind of guy she might just want to pick up on the rebound. and a new client has just walked in, begging for Dani's help breaking up with The Big Jackass, who's been leading her on all this time-and now turns out to be married.

It would be a routine job except for one problem: the so-called Big Jackass is married to none other than Dani's mother.


Shaunie's opinion: This was a fast and fun read, I'm really enjoying Johanna Edwards' books. The idea of the breakup company is hysterical, and the clients that hire them are just so painful you want to strangle them, it's great!


The Giveaway: This is a gently used, and Bookcrossing labeled copy, that I'm ready to pass on to make a new friend!

  2. Can I just add...the Kindle edition of this book is $11.99. Paperback edition is available new from $0.31. Really?!? WTF is Penguin thinking?

  3. The paperback book I am reading is Amistad by Alexs Pate (yeah, that is how he spells his name.) It is the book based on the Steven Spielberg movie. Isn't that odd? A book based on a movie instead of the other way around??? Great movie, and the book is quite interesting as well.

    I also have a few books on my Kindle that I am reading, The Bible, a devotional book, and another I can't recall the title of and I'm too lazy to go look - kindle in bedroom and I'm in living room.

    Oh, and yes I do follow you (sometimes around Oak Park Mall when you aren't looking! ). And I am sdkelley on bookcrossing, but you know that already!
