(94) Arm Candy by Jill Kargman

Arm Candy is not really a book that I can recommend to the people who have come to trust my reviews. I had a hard time staying focused on the story and the main character wasn't really that engaging or dynamic. I found myself skimming pages once I hit about page 130. I did read the last few chapters just to see how it was going to end. I must say the ending was quite predictable.

Brief synopsis. Eden leaves Backwoods, USA (totally paraphrasing there) for the big city once someone offers her a modeling job. After a hew hit & miss boyfriends, she finds herself the muse of a wealthy, famous, older artist.

Twenty years later, Eden is facing 40 & moving on from her "wealthy, older, artist" and finds herself in the middle of the "Cougar" movement. She is looking for love, happiness, and herself. Can she find with a younger man what she could not find with an older man?

Like I said, predictable. I am sure there are some of you out there that might enjoy this book, but it is one that I would leave out of the beach bag.


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.
