Bombshell by Lynda Curnyn

Hero: ??
Heroine: Grace Noonan
Grade: B-

She has more shoes than Sarah Jessica Parker and a skin-care system that could make Madonna swoon, but unlike her celebrity counterparts, Grace Noonan doesn't have it all. Her latest utterly-eligible-yet-maddeningly-unavailable boyfriend has revealed that having sex with her is one thing and having babies quite another, forcing Grace to move on — again. And now that her employer — a top cosmetics company once devoted to "beauty beyond thirty" — is pursuing a teenaged supermodel as its future face, this thirty-four-year-old marketing exec is starting to wonder if she is going to get it all before the closing credits. Could it be time for Grace to back out of the beauty race and trade the singles scene for the sperm bank? Or is there something even this savvy bombshell has yet to discover about life and love in New York City?

This book was cute.

It wasn't this I have to run out and get this no matter the cost kind of story, but it was a cute. I don't regret the purchase but you see, this is the book after, Engaging Men, and of the two I liked Engaging Men better but I didn't hate Grace's book, I think I liked Grace better than Angie, though I liked Angie better in her book and not so much in this one.

It was good to revisit the characters from Engaging Men, and it was also good to see them through Grace's eyes. I liked Grace in EM and I liked her in BS, I just wished that she wasn't so stubborn or so independant, because after a while the whole "I don't need anybody" attitude started to grate on my nerves.

I've got to admit that I was really intrigued by Michael and even cheered a bit for him (I don't know why, I just did), and I'm happy that nothing was left untied in this book, all the loose ends were tied, until I got to the very end and the way it ended, I wasn't very happy with that ending, I was just hoping for a bit more from Grace and the guy she ended up with, but then if you take into account that this is a chick lit book and they don't necessarily end in romance novel extraordinaire, but aside from the crappy ending, the book was cute.

Read it or not, it's up to you...but for me, it was just cute.
