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.
Review: This book was, at times, (almost) laugh-out-loud funny, silky smooth and had plenty of 'Awww' moments as well. The blurb pretty much describes the storyline, and I couldn't stop reading it (which is why, if you check my goodreads, you'll see I read it all in one day!).
The story centres around a girl, Zahra, whose parents are splitting up, and so they send her to group therapy. Here she meets the other 2 protagonists Kali and Syd, who all discover that their boyfriend has been cheating on them with each other using different names each time (Rico, Eric and Rick). Together they hatch a plot which can, at times, seem a little slapstick and unrealistic, but also is extremely funny. By word-of-mouth they manage to have girls begging at their doorstep for them to treat their ex's the same way (for a small fee of course). They not only offer revenge plots, but advice and counselling to couples in need.
I liked this book because it was chatty and witty, and yet still managed to reach some depths and move me. 4 stars.
