My Mini Thoughts

Samiah, Taylor and London are strong, smart and capable women.  They form an unlikely friendship after discovering they were all dating the same man.  I love reading a book about strong women and their friendships!  Samiah claims she doesn’t have time for friends, she’s a workaholic.  However when they make a pact to focus on themselves for the next six months Samiah is all in.  That means no men and no dating, and meeting once a week for check ins.

Unfortunately for her, Daniel, the new guy, is doing more than turning heads as the office hottie.  He’s not there to draw attention from his female co-workers, he is there to work.  By work I don’t mean his job at Trendsetters.  However he can’t deny the fact that Samiah is gorgeous and can’t keep his eyes off of her.  Daniel’s real job was interesting to me.  I won’t go into it, but I would have liked more information on his past.

This book was refreshing!  I love how the author made Samiah’s character one that breaks down barriers in the workplace.  Samiah is a woman of color rising up the ranks in the male dominated tech field.  I will say I would have liked more steam between Danielle and Samiah, but overall this is a cute read.

Book Rating: 3/5

Wine Pairing:  A nice chilled St Supéry Sauvignon Blanc

Goodreads Synopsis

Samiah Brooks never thought she would be “that” girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: she’s been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah-along with his two other “girlfriends,” London and Taylor-have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men, no dating, and no worrying about their relationship status . . .

For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she’s always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy, honey-eyed Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? When it comes to love, there’s no such thing as a coincidence. But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?
