(7) Room For Improvement by Stacey Ballis

I needed a good, solid piece of "brain candy" to read after finishing my last book. I know I can always count on Stacey Ballis for good "brain candy" and I was not disappointed.

This particular piece of "brain candy" was doubly awesome because it was a take on my favorite thing second to reading. HGTV.

Lily Allen is your typical single girl in the city. Dating is tough, but she has great friends that support her, no matter what she does. She has a great job as an interior designer and it is about to get even better. She has been offered a job that will allow her to be the on-screen designer for an HGTV type of show called, Swap/Meet. What more could a girl ask for right?

The show is going well. She is working with great people and is enjoying her career more than she ever has in her life. And then she makes the mistake of sleeping with her new producer. Needless to say things start to get sticky. She is working long hours to prove herself to him. She starts to blow off her friends and make stupid decisions. I think it goes to say there is definite Room For Improvement.

It was fun reading about Lily's escapades, both on the set & in the bedroom. She is a fun character to like & you definitely see where there is Room For Improvement, but you also see how she grows as a character. She realizes that she has been treating one particular man worse than he deserves. One apology may change everything.

Room For Improvement was exactly what I needed. I will say, that I was hoping that Lily would end up with a guy other than the one she ended up with, but the ending still worked. A good ending for a good book.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
