Between Boyfriends~ Sarka-Jonae Miller~ Review


At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills.

Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it’s time for Jan to grow up.

Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it’s time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she’ll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?

BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up… but not necessarily in that order.





Who doesn’t want the perfect life? You know…hot bikini body, hotter man, hottest sex, killer house and dream car, no bills to pay. Yea, you know you want it and you hate those twiggy bitches that have it. What’s better than seeing those bitches fall from grace Don’t lie…this is just between me and you. Saying that, when I get the chance to read a book about a girl that has everything and falls from her pedestal and is rudely welcomed into the “real” world I jump at it.

 NOW! Ever meet someone you immediately want to punch? You know that grates on your one last nerve? I had this feeling several times in this book. Like every time a new character was introduced. They were just so extreme and annoying to me. Not just a dude that was a “Richard Cranium” but an over the top womanizer, not just an alpha female but an outright bitch. Ms. Miller’s story telling is so detailed that she got this reaction from me. I could see (and hear) these girls sitting in a booth at a bar and hearing their mindless banter. They did, however, serve their purpose and helped round out the story.
Jan starts out like an annoying, spoiled little brat.  She has surrounded her with an over privileged motley crew that all have their inner demons. Jan hits rock bottom, stays there for a while drunk and whining. Then makes 180 degree changes in her life. As Jan’s story unfolds, she morphs from that spoiled brat into the emotionally neglected girl that has to learn the rules of life and to a growing woman.  There was resolution, even though a little iffy in believability but resolution to say the least.
 I think my biggest issue was that I couldn’t relate to these characters. Most of the time I had to remind myself that I was reading about adults and not 15 year old girls. Even with superior detailed writing on Ms. Miller’s part and finishing the book satisfied, this is a one time read for me. If you like chick-lit then one click it, spend the $0.99, and have a quick read.
Recommend: Maybe for serious chick-lit readers
HEAT: 1/5
Re-read: Not this time.
