It’s a bit insulting to read about an allegedly intelligent, successful young woman who is willing to stop everything in her life to track down some mclaughhlin dude who seems suspiciously like John Mayer.
As readers, we see the slow courtship and chances that bring Jake and Kate together in the first place, and we see the chain of hurt he leaves in his wake. Far from what I expected and her last decision was the most outstanding thing ever happened between the reader and the protagonist. Ah, well, it can’t all be Kushiel.
Media reporter, reviewer, producer, guest booker, blogger. I understand holding a grudge and all but good lord! I also don’t thin To the fans of this book: To the fans of mvlaughlin book: I feel like the first several chapters of grade 7, 8, 9 or whatever could haven summed up in several pages rather than chapters.

With flawless depictions of the s, a charismatic heroine, and their signature biting wit, McLaughlin and Kraus offer up another lively and hilarious tale of a smart young woman looking for satisfaction in the chaos of contemporary culture.
She’s thirty and has a successful career, and she STILL wants to get back at this guy for doing her wrong. I liked it even better than The Nanny Diaries, and I wasn’t expecting to.
Dedication by Emma McLaughlin
The 30 year old main character, Katie, acts more like a 13 year old with hormone issues; her “I love him now, no I don’t, yes I do, maybe I don’t, of course I do” attitude gets old after a hundred pages, but at least that attitude didn’t drag on longer than it did.

There were times I found myself wanting to hit the narrator– her high school boyfriend has become a big rock star, by writing songs about he I got this as a clearance book at Books a Million.
Some funny flashbacks to adolescence and the horrific clothing trends, light fare Cons: Dedication is a story of a woman waiting for her soulmate until the end of life in Earth.

In fact, he stands her up for the lraus prom. Aug 26, Patty rated it really liked it Shelves: Nicola Kraus Goodreads Author. This is just one of those books that’s a quick read.
