Book Spotlight: Between Boyfriends by Sarka-Jonae Miller

So being the naturally *ahem* outgoing and friendly person I am online, I met the lovely Sarka-Jonae Miller via Goodreads, which led to Facebook, (doesn't everything?) and one thing led to another, and what do you know, I'm hosting Sárka over here at my blog for a book spotlight on her chick-lit novel, Between Boyfriends.

Just a little bit about the book to whet your appetite:
Jan Weston is boy crazy, emphasis on crazy, but when "the one" breaks her heart she vows to change. Jan quits dating and takes a hard look at herself, discovering that she does not like the flawed, spoiled individual she sees in the mirror.

Her progress toward positive change is derailed when her mother discovers she dropped out of San Diego State University to attend massage therapy school. Furious at being lied to, Mrs. Weston cuts Jan off. Now Jan is without a guy, her American Express card, and a way to pay for school. She has to do something so despicable, so vile, so cruel, she almost cannot imagine it: Jan has to get a job.

But maybe that is exactly what she needs? Jan is forced to change how she treats people and to reconsider her values. Through a "comedy of errors" and with the support of her real friends (plus the hottie from massage school) Jan is able to survive, barely. But can she really change or is she just between boyfriends?

Right, so this doesn't exactly sound like my usual reading fare, as KK will attest, but why not? So before I get down to reading it, a few things to give you the heads up on:
  • The blog tour giveaway - Sárka is hosting a blog tour giveaway (this is one of the stops!), with an autographed copy of Janet Evanovich's Motor Mouth or a signed picture of Lauren Alaina up for grabs. (Deadline: Nov 4)
  • Win an iPod shuffle - Write a short review of the book and stand the chance to win an iPod shuffle. (Deadline: Nov 15, US only)
  • She also helpfully points out that the book will be free on November 2, if you're taking notes...
Where to buy:
Amazon (UK): Between Boyfriends
