    Desperate Measures was a cute, corny story about friendship and romance And I loved it Told from the perspectives of three different women, Aimee, Elizabeth, and Kiki, we follow their stories as they meet and become friends I found that I could empathize with all of them, despite the fact that my life is nothing like theirs except for a love of books, of course Usually with these types of books I don t have particularly strong emotional ties or reactions, but something about this one had m Desperate Measures was a cute, corny story about friendship and romance And I loved it Told from the perspectives of three different women, Aimee, Elizabeth, and Kiki, we follow their stories as they meet and become friends I found that I could empathize with all of them, despite the fact that my life is nothing like theirs except for a love of books, of course Usually with these types of books I don t have particularly strong emotional ties or reactions, but something about this one had me invested It made me both laugh and cry.That all being said, don t expect to go into this and find significant character depth It is also completely unrealistic and absolutely predictable from page one Even though some tough events occur warnings for abuse and a fairly long and graphic sex scene , it is overall what I would consider a light book.If you re looking for some easy to read chick lit to break upintense or serious reads, this might be your answer Get it on your kindle or nook for 4.99

    Here s my issues with this story and I m sure people will think I m nuts While a cute attempt at female empowerment, the constant references to douching as a joke were annoying, the physical and sexual abuse that appeared out of nowhere was odd though and at times I wasn t sure if these women were friends or hated each other I did not need the descriptions of every little thing from the shoes to the heel height to the car engines It was just too much The old lady was funny and I appreciated Here s my issues with this story and I m sure people will think I m nuts While a cute attempt at female empowerment, the constant references to douching as a joke were annoying, the physical and sexual abuse that appeared out of nowhere was odd though and at times I wasn t sure if these women were friends or hated each other I did not need the descriptions of every little thing from the shoes to the heel height to the car engines It was just too much The old lady was funny and I appreciated her but between feeling kind of icky while I read it and plot points that were not summed up, I kind of wonder why I finished it 1.5 stars

    I really enjoyed this book I loved how these three women met and how amazing their friendship became They all three were so different from each other yet they clicked and were willing to do anything for each other I wish there wasfriendships like this in books Now days I mostly find books where the so called best friend ends up being a complete piece of crap I m just glad to have had a chance to read this.
