Accidental Makeovers by Carol Maloney Scott
Twenty-something, single mom Bianca yearns for more. The cosmetology license she worked so hard to get is collecting dust while she waitresses for her mother’s catering business, but she has no clue how to turn her dreams of being a makeup artist into reality. Adding to her unhappiness is her dead-end relationship with her immature, video game-obsessed baby daddy, Max. Although he runs a successful business and Bianca still gets a thrill whenever she sees him play the drums in his cover band, Chain, she can’t deny that he’s starting to feel like her big, tattooed second child.
In desperate need of a life makeover, her fortune takes a positive turn when she crosses paths with an impulsive, runaway bride who has the connections to help Bianca achieve her goals. Suddenly, doors are being opened for her and she has a fabulous, new job that’s reigniting her zest for life. Too bad Max isn’t on board with these changes, and he starts acting like a jealous jerk, which brings their faltering relationship to a boiling point just about the time Bianca meets Eric, a sexy and charming financial manager. Eric comes from a different world, but one Bianca is increasingly eager to join.
Bianca expects her friends and family to be supportive of her budding romance with Eric, but to her surprise, they’re all on Team Max and they rally behind him when he launches a campaign to win her back. Nothing wrong with bar fights, fake girlfriends, and strategically placed rodents when they're all in the name of true love, right?
Quite by accident her world is transformed overnight, but can a career makeover beautify her love life?
This is the fourth book in the Rom-Com on the Edge series. I haven't read the previous books yet (but have book one sitting on my e-reader waiting for me), so I know this can be read as a stand alone, though if you've read the earlier books, I think you will enjoy revisiting these characters even more.
The story is told in first person, but split between several characters, so although you feel like you know exactly what's going on, you don't have the all seeing eye of the narrator and things still pop up to surprise you.
I liked Bianca and cheered her on throughout the book. I kept changing my mind about who I thought she should end up with, but I was happy with who she chose. There were lots of laugh out loud, light and fluffy moments, interspersed with some deeper ones. A well balanced, entertaining chick lit novel.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
