A favorite chick lit author has done it again! This is the most fitting cover. I love the graphics and the colors. Nicholas has his trademark stubbles in the picture too! 

What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out.

A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, “Pastel is the New Black,” has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that “chick lit is dead” once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day makes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm.

While Kim’s day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that’s turning heads–and pages–across the land. It’s also popped into Kim’s inbox–for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim’s coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.

Reviews:

I loved Meredith Schorr’s Just Friends With Benefits because it reminded me so vividly of a particular time in my life and a girl I used to be. A State of Jane had the same amazing quality! Meredith has such a great knack for telling a story, I can literally taste the apple martinis as I read. I always feel like I’m a personal friend of the protagonist, along for the ride, experiencing hilarious and also poignant adventures in NYC singlehood as I fly through her books. Specifically here, Jane Frank was such an interesting character. Delightfully flawed. I really adored her and her earnest determination to try and control her destiny. She was wonderfully self-absorbed–and not in a horrible, dis-likeable way. I did feel like shaking her at times, but in the same way I wanted to shake Bridget Jones. Not because I didn’t love her, but because I *truly* loved her. Even when she made me cringe. Which she did. A lot. But it was great! Highly recommended!
