A Girl Like You by Maria Geraci

I recently read A Girl Like You by Maria Geraci. The book was very well written. The characters are very well developed. The story follows Emma Frazier, a reporter for a magazine as she deals with love and friends. During a night out she over hears her friend refer to her as the "ugly friend" which sparks her to impress her boss with whom she is infatuated. Emma begins to reconnect with friends from high school one of which she ends up dating the other leads to big life changes for the person. 

The story was truly enjoyable. I loved that the characters in this book can very easily be someone everyone knows. Unlike many other books this book involves a lesbian couple (Emma's mothers). It was nice to see this situation in a book. It makes it seem like this could be anyone's family.

Cosmo's Fifty-One Shades of Blonde

I recently read Cosmos Fifty One Shades of Blonde. I know that this must be a parade of Fifty Shades of Grey, however being one of a few people who refuses to read that book I would not know for sure. As far as the book I did read, it was a short story that was pretty well written, the only thing missing was a plot. The story jumped directly to sex without much background or story first. I would have liked to have a story before I read about two people jumping into bed. The potential for this to be a decent story is there, the author just needed to build it up more. Overall the entire story can be read in a half hour, but if something with better reviews comes along I highly suggest reading that instead.
