    3. I have read all of Erica James books She has the knack of creating an emotional rollercoaster which makes us laugh one minute and cry the next She writes light romance but not quite so light as to be chick lit Having said that, I don t think this is one of her best I found the characters a little too black and white and stereotyped The bad characters especially had nothing at all to redeem them There was also a little to much reliance on co incidence After the first few chapters, I did consider [...]


    4. Ugh I had a difficult time even getting into this book The characters were over the top awful which made it unbelievable Even the main characters, who I think I was supposed to like root for annoyed the crap out of me I found myself skipping ahead just to see if it was going to get any better It didn t.


    5. I love every book Erica James has written I think it s 18 They grab you from the very first page, they never get boring, and I don t want to stop reading or want it to end I read this one 430 pages in 1 day Her characters and plots are unique and interesting You never feel like you ve heard it before.



    6. 3 stars from me We ve all done it, made promises to ourselves, vowing to change something in our lives Erica James takes three people all at a point of wanting to change an aspect of their lives Maggie dreams of romance while stuck in a depressing marriage and working as a cleaner Ella wasted seven years with a man who couldn t challenge his spoilt teenage daughter while Ethan consoles himself for his loveless marriage by having one night stands They all vow to change and make a different life t [...]


    7. Another heart warming story from Erica James What I love about Erica s books is that they are so realistic You can relate with the characters and recognize their flaws This story revolves around three individuals Ethan, Maggie and Ella who have made themselves a promise to change one thing about themselves.Ethan has sworn to keep away from women and one night stands Maggie has sworn to stand up for herselfElla has sworn to move on from the toxic relationship that she just got out offThe story fo [...]


    8. Bought this book for many years already but didn t manage to finish it Lately I just try reading it again and wow.is book is good A lengthy book but with short, interesting chapters A very real story as to what is going in most people s life now It is a matter of what we want and can we do anything to change the life we have now I enjoyed every chapters in this book Great story and characters Wish this book can be made into a movie too Kudos Erica James



    9. What a great read, so many of us must be able to identify with Maggie Stormde me laugh out loud on many occasions.cially Ethan singing in the garden



    10. Probably a 2.75 star rating is appropriate Fairly sweet and readable, but nothing outstanding A nice light read, which is all I am up for at the moment



    11. Terrible people do selfish things to make themselves feel better Well written characters but not particularly empathetic.



    12. Erica James has written a smart, funny and sometimes painful look at the intersecting lives of three people from seemingly different backgrounds Maggie Storm cleans houses for the wealthy snobs who looks down on her Ella Moore has a little credibility but is still considered the hired help And Ethan Edwards attempts to continue paying for these luxuries while knowing, deep down, he has to make some serious changes.The story is not a romance so if you re looking for lots of page time with a hero [...]


    13. Maggie is the put upon wife of Mr Blobby , aka Dave She cleans other peoples houses all day only to return home for of the same for her unappreciative husband and son The highlight of her week is the stolen afternoon reading romantic novels in the library She dreams of a better life but her inability to stand up for herself means she probably faces only further drudgery and the occasional night at the bingo with her mum s cronies, unless she can change An unexpected windfall and meeting the han [...]


    14. Erica James books have always been a source of enjoyment for me Yes she produces Chick Lit romance books but she always manages to integrate a dose of realism without it becoming too depressing.In this book Erica s writing style is as ever so easy to get along with You are swept away with the characters as they are introduced to you and you find yourself feeling like you want to be a part of what is going on.In this case it is meeting the three main characters and their husbands wives or childre [...]


    15.

    16. Really a 3.5Maggie Storm is an unhappy woman She is in a loveless marriage and cleans houses for a living At least two of her clients are vicious rich women who treat Maggie as if she s a second rate citizen Maggie has never had the backbone to stick up for herself or to go after what she wants.Ella Moore is fresh out of a long relationship She s purchased her own home and her business is holding steady even in the tough economy Ella is finding herself and while she misses her ex, her life is fa [...]


    17. Ethan is something of a womaniser but who can blame him, married to the shallow, materialistic albeit attractive Francine Their cleaner Maggie is married to Dave, who could best be described as a sexist slob so she dreams of romance and loses herself in library books Then there s Ella, who is commissioned by Francine to paint a mural in her dining room Ella has just broken up from Lawrence due to the continual aggression from his teenage daughter However she gets along extremely well with Lawren [...]


    18.

    20. Ella fell in love with a widower with two children One child accepts her, the other hates her and is as difficult as it is possible to be.Maggie is married to a slob of a man, and suffers the tirades of a truly obnoxious mother in law who treates her badly.Ethan is married to a trophy wife who loves his bank balance, and is only interested in showing off her wealth and superiority to anyone who might be impressed She is cold towards Ethan, who, perhaps unsurprisingly, seeks physical and ultimate [...]


    21. As you are well into this story, you really wonder how Erica James will resolve the issues, but she does and I think rather well and believably Maggie is a cleaner of mostly rich people s homes, looked down upon by the people she works for and treated like a dogsbody by her slob of a husband Most of the time when the story revolves around her home life it is extremely frustrating as you are desperate for her to develop a backbone Eventually she does Ella is a independent free spirit who knows h [...]


    22. I would recommend this book as a nice, cheery summer read, its short chapters make it an easy read and its positive messages mean it ll put you in a nice mood I ve never read anything by this author before, i d say it doesn t attempt to be anything too fancy, it hits the mark in terms of a nice easy chick lit book As for characters, some I could quite imagine, others who were far less prevalent so I won t be too judgemental were not written particularly well, the teenage daughter characters dial [...]
