    Sami grew up in the small town of Elk Lake Minnesota and has always designed clothes She decides to move to New York and make it big as a fashion designer The main love interest for Sami is a vital part of the story but isn t mentioned often in the novel I was disappointed in the novel because I believe even though she grew up in a small town that she still should have had some common sense and not to have been duped majorily once and strung along the second time I think life in a big city o Sami grew up in the small town of Elk Lake Minnesota and has always designed clothes She decides to move to New York and make it big as a fashion designer The main love interest for Sami is a vital part of the story but isn t mentioned often in the novel I was disappointed in the novel because I believe even though she grew up in a small town that she still should have had some common sense and not to have been duped majorily once and strung along the second time I think life in a big city or not can teach us someone s true intentions toward us especially when it is so apparent It could have been a cuter story than it was so I was disappointed

    I picked this book up because it had the same style cover as some of the other romantic comedies I like But, this one just fell short First off, it was told by a third person narrarator, which is usually fine, but in this case was distracting There would be times where something was described awkwardly and gave you an extra reminder that you were reading from 3rd person and made you feel disconeccted Also, you would occasionaly hear conversations that the main character wasn t there to hear I picked this book up because it had the same style cover as some of the other romantic comedies I like But, this one just fell short First off, it was told by a third person narrarator, which is usually fine, but in this case was distracting There would be times where something was described awkwardly and gave you an extra reminder that you were reading from 3rd person and made you feel disconeccted Also, you would occasionaly hear conversations that the main character wasn t there to hear The whole thing felt like a cheesy, made for tv disney movie with dorky dialog, a niave main character, and predictable, unbalievable story lines

    I feel a little guilty giving this three stars, because it a far fetched, simply written, shallow romance But, I enjoyed it It kept me awake on a very long road trip, even though it was predictable and silly It is only fun, light reading and that s all it was meant to be, so I would enjoy it for what it is a simple, fun rom com with no real plot or substance that will entertain and amuse for a short bit, and then be completely forgotten.

    I thought this was a very cute story but at times it was a little predictable as to what would happen But that didnt take away from the story Although its very obvious who she would end up with the in between parts were very interesting and funny If you re looking for something quick and funny to read this is definitely it

    Got this book from a friend and read it when I was in College Ate Nitz, I think I got this from you I think these series are the first ones I ve read that exposed me to chick lits.

    This is a nice, casual read When I was younger, I read several of the books in this Romantic Comedy sort of collection I d say they all do a fairly good job of telling an enjoyable and cute yet predictable story I imagine fans of hallmark movies would appreciate the storyline of these books.

    Fun, mindless read One of those books you read when you don t want anything with a complicated storyline you basically just want a cheesy chick flick story.

    2.5 stars A bit too unbelievableSami Granger s lifelong dream has been to escape the small town of Elk Lake, Minnesota, and make it big as a clothing designer in New York City At age eighteen, she takes her savings and heads off to see if she can find a job in the Big Apple Things don t start out exactly as Sami imagined it s tougher to get an appointment to show her designs than she had hoped And right after she moves in, a murder occurs at the seedy hotel where she s staying.All at once, S 2.5 stars A bit too unbelievableSami Granger s lifelong dream has been to escape the small town of Elk Lake, Minnesota, and make it big as a clothing designer in New York City At age eighteen, she takes her savings and heads off to see if she can find a job in the Big Apple Things don t start out exactly as Sami imagined it s tougher to get an appointment to show her designs than she had hoped And right after she moves in, a murder occurs at the seedy hotel where she s staying.All at once, Sami s life starts to come together She gets a job as a receptionist, but everyone has to start somewhere at an up and coming design firm Her immediate boss, Bruce, takes her under his wing, seeming genuinely interested in her fashion ideas Sami finds an apartment to share with another small town girl, and their neighbor, Vin, is handsome as well as kind Then Bruce takes Sami s designs and claims they are his, causing her to quit in protest She gets a job at a trashy lingerie store, but is discouraged by the setback Will Sami ever achieve her dreams This isa typical chick lit novel than one for teens Although Sami is eighteen, her life is very fast paced and she is pushing forward to become a designer I found that part of the story extremely unrealistic, as it took my attention away from the cute plot and romance It seems highly unlikely that a teenager from a small town could take the fashion world by storm without either college education or training Other than that, her naivet is appropriate and adds endearing character to the storyline.Teens wanting to dip into lighthearted chick lit will enjoy this fresh view of a young girl trying to make it in the big city Readers will root for Sami to get her due as well as her revenge, and it s satisfying when she does The supporting characters add depth and a touch of humor Ripped at the Seams is a light, entertaining summer read

    Seeing as the backs of these Romantic Comedies usually provide too much or not accurate enough information, I try not to read them until I ve read the book I did that with this one, and now see that the entire plot was on the back of the book Only, for some odd reason, our heroine s hunk Vin, for those of you wondering on the front cover is NOT mentioned.Okay, so you re undoubtly thinking, get to the book already, but here s my point The hunk of the front cover is hardly in the book at all Seeing as the backs of these Romantic Comedies usually provide too much or not accurate enough information, I try not to read them until I ve read the book I did that with this one, and now see that the entire plot was on the back of the book Only, for some odd reason, our heroine s hunk Vin, for those of you wondering on the front cover is NOT mentioned.Okay, so you re undoubtly thinking, get to the book already, but here s my point The hunk of the front cover is hardly in the book at all And look at him, for a cartoon drawing, he s hot Instead, we have to endure our heroine s disease, I mean, desire for jerks that steal her disigns or use her for publicity Yes, we get two jerk boyfriends in this book that take up the vast majority of the 300 pages Vin, the hot guy we all know is going to end up with Sami, Like that s a big spoiler, as this is a supposedly fluffy romance novel Wait, where was I Oh yes Vin was hardly in the book at all Instead of the passionate kisses a reader expects and wants to read from this type of book, we get Sami trying to make it in the fasion idustry, two jerks, and that s about it Don t get me wrong, it s a cute little story, but gosh SPOILER she doesn t get together with Vin until page three hundred and nine in a three hundred and twenty six page book, and then they kiss shortly once, maybe they have sex in his apartment, and we see they re still together in the epilouge Sami doesn t even talk to him though in the epilouge, they just live together, but he s not really in the epilouge END SPOILER.Anyway, just don t read this one with hopes of romance, passion, or any general things you think you re going to get.Kay, I m done ranting
