Friendship will always come first.
There’s only one way out from rock bottom and that’s up, and Teri Meyer is finally crawling out from the worst time of her life – no thanks to her best friend Lee. But no matter, she’s finally found love – real love with a real man, a successful man, a man who accepts all her flaws. Teri’s never felt like this before, and yet it’s changing her in ways she doesn’t understand.
And there’s only one person who can help, one person who truly understands Teri.
It seems that no matter how hard Lee Harper tries, there’s a battle awaiting her at every turn these days, and she’s tired. And as if she needs the extra stress, Teri continues to create constant and unnecessary drama. But Lee’s the only one who really knows what’s going on under Teri’s hard, convoluted exterior, and that’s why she’s always been there for her.
But the question is: will Teri be there when Lee needs her most?
The brilliant and entertaining final book in the unique FRIENDS trilogy dishes out another dose of rib-tickling mayhem for our favourite thirty-something professional women.
The title and the sub title was intriguing and to top that, it had a cute cover so I was in for the blog tour arranged by Rachel’s Random Resources.
It took me a little time to get into the story as I had not read the first two in the trilogy (yes, it is a trilogy and I recommend that you read the three in order). I felt that the story was being stretched with no direction to it.
After a few chapters and after I have become familiar with the characters, it all started making sense. I am not saying that I fell in love with the characters or endorse their actions in the story but I understood where they were coming from and what had shaped them to be who they were.
There were instances I would given Teri and Lee a piece of my mind for their actions and their holier than thou attitudes but it all somehow fitted in the lives they had had. It made sense.
There were many times when I would have given both of them a hug for being grossly misunderstood by the person closest to them.
Once I had gotten over the fact that it was not up to me to reform these characters the way I want them to be, I made my peace with them and then they showed me some moments which made me laugh and made me feel bad for them.
Recommended for chick lit fans.
A 2.75 from me.
