Blow Me is the story of Skylar, Dawn, and Chloe; three single friends living in Los Angeles and waiting for their lives to begin. They are making bad choices, looking for love in all the wrong places, and living like 20-something college drop-outs, even though they’re pushing 40 (or beyond). These ladies don’t quite know what they want to do when they “grow up”, but they do know that finding a marrying man would make their lives a whole lot easier.

Skylar thinks her life is going great and would be just perfect with the addition of Mr. Right. Then a huge wake up call forces her to truly grow up and become a responsible adult. Misfortune leads to meeting the unlikely man of her dreams, and the realization of personal success and achievement. Dawn is feeling so much pressure from her overbearing mother and her ticking fertility clock that she is in danger of sabotaging the one relationship that finally seems to be heading in the right direction. Chloe’s life is in utter disarray, and years of living lies just might finally catch up with her.

It took me awhile to warm up to the main characters in Blow Me, but before too long, I did. One in particular was especially annoying, as I’m sure she was meant to be. This book is more about the romantic lives of Skylar, Dawn, and Chloe, and their individual coming of age (or lack thereof) than it is about their relationships and friendships with one another. It is a fun book, and a perfect light read for the beach or a rainy afternoon.

Rating: 3/5
