When Billy Rendell suddenly gets everything she wants, it turns out to be the last thing she needs . . .

A long-awaited promotion. Freedom from emotional baggage. A newly - ahem - amorous husband. What's wrong with this picture? Well . . . everything. For starters, Billy hasn't actually earned any of it. Instead, like some character in a fairy tale, this stuck-in-a-rut publicist had all her wishes granted overnight - which feels great, at least at first. But soon Billy's brand-new success starts to unravel - who'd have thought becoming a VP would be so Very Painful? Or that a harmless crush on a co-worker would turn not-so-harmless now that he's crushing back? It'll take a surreal, rollicking, high-stakes journey for Billy to realize what she really wants out of life . . . before it's too late.

Journal Entry 2 by EllyMae58 at San Diego, California USA on Monday, April 21, 2014
I read this in August 2013.

There was a reason I stopped reading books from the Red Dress Ink line. Originally, I quite enjoyed them, and can easily name several titles I'd be happy to reread or recommend, but basically I guess I just kind of outgrew them. They started to feel formulaic and I felt I could no longer relate to the characters.

I picked this one up because it was recommended by someone with similar tastes and also because I've enjoyed Laura Caldwell's other RDI titles. However, this one fell flat for me. For some reason, I just did not like Billy and hoping that might change, I kept reading. Nope. Still didn't like her. This became a "keep-reading-to-see-what-happens-and-just-finish-already" book rather than a "keep-reading-because-I'm-enjoying-it" book.
