Thought It Took A it took a while to really get rolling I was kind of bored in the beginning and the story really only started to catch my interest when Fanny arrived in Alaska From there on out Working It and I were friends MY MAIN COMPLAINT IS THAT I FELT LIKE THE main complaint is that I felt like the was too short Once I started to get into the characters and the relationships I felt like the story flew by and I didn t get a chance to savore them r hang out with them long enough Especially in regards to the romance I felt like once things were really picking up with Calder and Fanny we were at 72% into the book and I was sad because I knew it would be over soon I wanted to see of themBottom line Fans of chick lit will adore this series Working It is a fun read that you can finish in one sitting It takes a little bit of time to gain steam but once the story gets going it is fast paced and zips right

I felt a little lost during parts of this book as I haven t read the second story in this series but caught up fairly smoothly Fanny is bitchy and snarky and divalicious but also a great friend and a little clueless about the real world The sex scenes with Hottie McScottie are yummy though a bit glossed over and rushed but that s ok as this story is about her finding out who she is underneath the Dior I love that she was so vulnerable and even that her bestie Vivia made an appearance Their relationship is really the star of this show and in the end WORKING IT is a story about living your authentic self and surrounding yourself with amazing uality friends who adore and fulfill you What a fabulous message Bottom Line Ms Brown s writing is witty sexy and poignant and I love how she makes her point without sounding preachy Kudos to you once again for an awesome read See at See at Working It rounds out the It Girls series nicely Fanny is a heroine readers can cheer for and since Vivia is her best friend readers get updates on the character we ve grown to love from the first two books in the series Review also found at received a copy of this book from the publisher Kensington via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This story was ust released last weekThis story is the third in the it girl series It can be read as a stand alone however in my opinion I would recommend reading the series in order The reason is that by doing so you get the entire picture as well as the reader gets to experience the humor of Brown from the beginning Also the first two stories feature Vivian and will give the reader greater context in her role in Fanny s life With that in mind this review may only make sense to those who have read the whole seriesI m not going to lie I feel the first book was the best however in most cases this tends to be the case By now I am used to the over the top humor and endless references to all things pop culture There is no longer any shock value for me That doesn t mean this was not a good story It delivered exactly what I was looking for and that was a light funny readWhile I was onboard with Fanny s The Nordic Varieties of Capitalism journey I did not find her as dynamic or compelling as her best friend This makes sense as the whole plot is surrounding her uptight personality It was interesting how Brown threw a lot of French phrases in to the story As someone who lives in a bilingual FrenchEnglish city I do come across a lot of Frenglish being spoken That being said it is none of the phrases penned in this storyThis was a light fast humorous read While I feel that it will forever live in the shadows of the two that came before it is still a good read Based on the ending of this storycan we expect a fourth story in the It Girl series I guess I will have to wait and see I m disappointed I wrote this review and it didn t save the style and tone of the book were good St phanie is an absolute bitch extremelyudgemental mean hungry and ridiculous for using new age slang like totes Class A people around her and it was amazing that she even intrigued them to begin Her character ourney is what made her interesting but the book was too abrupt We were now delving into her issues and resolution and love and it ust ended A uickie epilogue and that was that Calder was cheated out of voicing his thoughts and I m sure it would have been greatly appreciated Book was too damn short Vivian got two books dammit and Fanny was the interesting of the two Thank heavens for the 2am call that was answered It was the catalyst Fanny needed That s not even a thing were Im from My darlings and I are mostly fowls and very proud What s app and whenever we get up we will respond The scene in which the black male character imitated something with reference to the latin male character really displayed the unfortunate way the American society is developing Too sensitive Fanny had the thought before understanding the reference that it was racist and I had the thought that Fanny is a damn ass and part of the overly sensitive society emerging Nothing about it was racist or hateful etc Should have been a deleted scene We have one race with multiple ethnicities and cultures and some places where the two have merged beautifully but aren t being appreciated for what it can truly be by othersLeah continue to write beautiful novels and complex diverse characters I wouldn t be surprised if this was picked up for a motion picture Falling in love is always in fashionWith her trust fund and coveted ob at Christian Dior Fanny Moreau believes she has it all But when her best friend finds a fulfilling new career abroad and a dreamy relationship with a great guy Fanny s fabulous life suddenly feels empty Inspired to find her true purpose she trades her cushy lifestyle in San Francisco for an adventure in the Alaskan wildernessEveryone thinks Fanny has gone off the deep end What s a girl with
