“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.”
Don’t you just hate being burned by a guy? Especially one that cheated on you with not one but three girls? Zahara, Kaili and Syd, all got burned by the same guy. What was originally planned as a revenge plot turned into a whole new business, Love, Inc. In this they offer services such as revenge, counseling, match-making and such. Although they had no idea that even though the business will take off, they all still have a lot to learn.
This book was a cute and fun read. I enjoyed watching all the girls become close as sisters. Instead of turning on each other, the held on to each other helping each other through the pain.They were there for each other through thick and thin, like true sisters.
Some of the stuff they came up as revenge was so funny! I was laughing my head off enjoying these girls take revenge on the cheaters. The had some very good advice to give and certainly were not selfish. When it came time for one them who need help and money, they bonded together, helping her out.
The love aspect in the book were very eye-opening. I loved reading about relationships and seeing them grow. Syd had a hard time letting go. Kali just flirted with everyone. And Zahara was just left out. I was happy to see a boy take notice on her. He did act like a toddler just picking on her. Zahara had no idea he even like her. Way to go buddy!
If you are looking for a cute and fun read, then read this. It has some great advice, some good revenge, and great friendship!
