I was done.
Done with men.
Women say it all the time; they get fed up, throw their hands in the air, and vow a life of celibacy—until the next chiseled chest comes into view and then they’re foaming at the mouth and wiping the drool from their chins. But this was different, I really meant it.
I’d been manhandled by the last pig that would ever bring his sausage near me. After one of the nastiest divorces in history, followed by some of the crudest and raunchiest dates, I’d decided to bat for the other team. 
…At least I tried.
But creating the next Brat Pack hadn’t been on the agenda. Neither had Collier West. And I wasn’t prepared for finding true love at the end of my gal-pal tryst.
Ever read a book that lived up to more than you imagined?  Like the blurb is only the beginning of the laugh fest awaiting you?  And the author or heroine has the same obsession that you do with nail polish?  Especially OPI nail polish.  This is that book.  I swear, I read it on Sunday afternoon, I never stopped giggling.  When I read the blurb at first, I didn’t really know what to expect.  Honestly, I figure some F/F experimentation but we don’t get that at all if that’s what puts you off from reading it.  Don’t do that.  This book is a definite keeper on the Kindle.
This book is just too hilarious NOT to read.  Let’s start with Gizzy, the heroine.  She’s older (Thank God!), divorced and tired of idiotic men in her bed.  She is a basic dead-end job but it pays well.  Overall, I didn’t think she really liked herself and felt stuck.  Her bestie is Roxie and a lesbian.  Gizzy decides that she needs to start dating women and goes to Roxie for advice.  Needless to say, Ronnie isn’t that helpful at all.  In fact, at times, I really hated Roxie.  She was too abrasive for me and her treatment of Gizzy.  I felt like she was just projecting her own relationship woes on Gizzy which wasn’t fair.  That said, she finally did step up in the end when it really counted.
Beck, to me, is the best secondary character in the book.  She is Gizzy “first” but also someone that Gizzy counts on when the chips are really down.  I also felt that Roxie was there for Gizzy, too.  Those two really made Gizzy really look at herself and her relationship with men.  They never made fun of her (like Ronnie did) and I felt like they were true friends to her.  I won’t spoil the rest of the book but Gizzy finally gets to be herself around men and it’s a profound change for her.  No pressure, since the men in the book “think” that she bats for the other team.
The situations that Gizzy finds herself in are the hilarious parts of the book and there are many.  You will laugh out loud and then shake your head, too.  The hero in the book is a dream.  I didn’t understand him at first but once his relationship with Gizzy starts, I fell in love with him.  He is perfect for Gizzy and really gets her.  I’m going to leave it at that because you just HAVE to read this book.
Ms. Walls scores the hat trick, walk-off home run, winning field goal and the gold medal with Girl Crush.  She delivers one of the best rom-com that I have read in years.
Highly!!!!!
