Summary

From the keenly observant author of The Fairer Sex comes a collection of sexy, razor-sharp short stories that swing a wrecking ball at our assumptions about women - what they desire, what they’re working toward, and what they’re willing to wait for.

In these witty, bracing, and poignant stories, Michelle Miller follows six women on the often-surprising path to satisfaction.

An ambitious corporate consultant reflects on the choices she’s made when she reconnects with an ex. An NYU grad’s desire for a married alumnus lands her in a precarious position. A frustrated dog owner tests the appeal of her bichon-poodle puppy at the dog park. Two best friends discover their discomfort zone when they play with three inevitable words: "Should we date?" A trophy wife’s practical choice takes a dark turn in the South of France. And a marketing consultant faced with her boyfriend’s blindsiding proposal to sleep with other people decides that it’s not such a bad idea.

Love Michelle Miller’s writing.

Hysterical, moving, poignant, thoughtful. Loved her novel and previous set of short stories and this continues to build on those as a true reflection on how women traverse some of the challenges they face.

Not worth it

I don't usually leave reviews, but I couldn't finish this book. If you're looking for positive stories, this is not your book. if you want depressing stories about how life sucks for most people, dive in.

Poor

Deceptive. Not at all what I expected. Makes women look shallow. No depth of character.

Stereotypes women, unoriginal, tired

I was very disappointed. The stories in this book are extremely boring stereotypes of women. One character chooses her career over her relationship, another is in love with a married man. YAWNNN. I very much hated it. Don’t waste your time

Terrible

This book sounds like someone reading a cosmopolitan article. It’s not good at all.
Do not recommend.

Weird women

Don’t be fooled by the title. I would not want to know any of these women.
