Today is Saturday and that means it’s time for me to show you one of my favorite covers of ALL time. There are many beautiful covers out there. There are whimsical covers and even some dark mysterious covers. Book covers are meant to catch your eye. They are supposed to make you pick up the book and forge a relationship with it, right there in the bookstore. There are a lot of books out there so, when I’m tired, I will go book shopping and specifically pick up a book based on it’s cover. It isn’t everyday I buy a book based on it’s cover but the first thing that makes me pick up a book is the cover. That brings us to this weeks cover.

Zahra, Kali, and Syd would never have met if their parents’ marriages hadn’t fallen apart. But when the three girls collide in group counseling, they discover they have something else in common: they’ve each been triple-timed by the same nefarious charmer, Eric, aka Rico, aka Rick. Talk about eye-opening therapy. Cheerful, diplomatic Zahra is devastated. Rico had been her rock and sole confidant. How could she have missed the signs? Folksy, flirtatious Kali feels almost as bad. She and Rick had only been on a few dates, but they’d felt so promising. Hardened vintage-vixen Syd is beyond tears. She and Eric had real history… Or so she’d thought. Now all three girls have one mission: to show that cheater the folly of his ways. Project Payback is such a success, the girls soon have clients lining up for their consulting services. Is your boyfriend acting shady? Dying to know if your crush is into you? Need match-making expertise? Look no further than Love, Inc.
I read this book back in December 2011. It was so good. I was still in a Twilight Coma but managed to find this contemporary read that just happened to knock my socks off. The three main characters were so lovable and the humor was some I’ll never forget. Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout made me want to disappear into their worlds over and over. (I will admit I have a book of theirs on my TBR pile. OPPS!)
The story is told from Zahra’s point of view, although the story follows all three girls lives, Zahra is the main voice. The girls focus on revenge is funny to watch unfold. The humor between the three friends is incredible. They grow close through their bad (shared) experience and find that, sometimes, friendship aren’t always so black and white.
The story takes some unexpected turns through the course of this nearly 400 page book. Maybe that was because I was so young, but I really enjoyed this novel. It was really great. I gave it to my sister after I read it and my mom picked it up last Summer. It’s one of those books that anyone will love.
