Synopsis : Sometimes Flying Solo Means You Just Have to Wing It
sin•gle•ti•ni: A curious type of female typically found living in urban settings; possessing an unusual, some would say deathly, fear of growing up and getting married.
Meet Victoria Hart. She’s sassy, sparkling, and taking the Chicago dating scene by storm as a professional “wingwoman”—a modern-day matchmaker hired to help clueless guys find Miss Right. With nights on the town, drinks on the house, and clothes on the credit card, Vic is loving her glam singletini lifestyle. There’s just one little problem . . . okay, maybe two. She needs to keep her new career a secret, and the first of her friends just got engaged—ENGAGED!
Vic isn’t sure she’s ready to be that grown up yet—she likes her life the way it is. Not that being a wingwoman is all wine and roses. With clients ranging from cowboys and would-be porn stars to her best friend’s boss, Vic quickly discovers this late-night Cupid gig is trickier than she anticipated. To make matters worse, she somehow agrees to help plan her friend’s swanky wedding, complicated by a never-ending to-do list and a very shady groom.
With too many wingwoman gigs, bridezilla demands, and more and more friends eyeing the altar, Vic is starting to feel a little lost, a lot confused, and completely bombarded by love connections. Does she really want to stay solo . . . or use those wingwoman skills for herself?
Review : When I start this book, I expected to have a pleasant moment. And I can say It did have the intended effect.
Victoria is a young woman looking for a new job, and what a surprise when she sees some brochures for becoming a wingwoman. What is it exactly ? Nothing complicated, Victoria has to help some young men to find love. Indeed, She meets these original clients during parties and help them to face the girls they like.
It was funny to see evolves our heroine who are very unlucky with love for herself but who has a great gift for other people. She tries to be discreet about her new job because of her very curious friends. Things get complicated when her best friend decides to marry. Victoria will become a personal Assistant, a spy and a model… Things to keep her busy for a long time !
The story is banal and very predictable. Indeed, the framework of the story isn’t really original and it’s recurrent in Chick-lit. But it was a pleasure to read this book, it’s a slight, funny and nice story. We quickly like Victoria who doesn’t want to grow up, and who would like to always stay with her friends. But that’s not possible. However, she is a faithful friend, who wants do whatever can for them even if it means big troubles.
I really like too the character of Patrick, this young man in love with Victoria, despite of she doesn’t even know it. It was really cute to see them evolve, especially while Victoria makes a lot of stupid things when she is with him.
If you want to relax it’s a good book.
