Before I begin, I was given a copy of this book for an honest reviewHow would you know someone s the One without having dated him first Love at first sight A sign from God A Tiffany s engagement ring This book was a delightful mixture of comedy and romance that will tug at your heartstrings When I first read about Jan through her ex boyfriend s POV, I laughed out loud After all, she was described as the typical blonde bombshell airhead and I didn t feel sorry for her AT ALL after being dumped After 20% into the book, however, I realized that there are much deeper issues that drive Jan s clingy behavior There were times where I even felt sorry for her, or rather, moments of clarity where her vulnerability was unmaskedThe trip down memory lane was highly amusing She snickered as she remembered all the losers she had dated during the three years she had lived in the apartment Yet with each name that popped into her head as she touched a new item, a breakup memory popped in alongside it All of a sudden, it didn t seem so funny any Jan s character is so complex and hard to describe On one hand, I attribute her childhood and upbringing that shapes her into a whiny, needy, mean girl On the other end of the scale, I thought maybe there s just no saving someone so self centered and pitiful Suprisingly, I saw much character development and improvement on Jan s part Jan turned from a snob to a real, genuine person, giving real smiles, letting down her barriers, facing her insecurities There were many times in the book where I was just about to give up hope out of pure annoyance with her character, but she pulled through It s amazing how a character I completely hated at the beginning turned into such a strong confident and likable person If you re looking for a book about finding yourself and facing against the odds, this is the book for you 4 STARS Jan is a rich and spoiled girl, who quits her college to join massage school without her mother s knowledge She just got dumped by her boyfriend again Tired of the opposite gender, Jan decides not to date again ever To a girl who has always had boyfriends, this is going to be a big feat Her mother who has been paying her bills so far, disowns her, as soon as she knows that Jan had dropped out of college Financially helpless, for the first time in her life, Jan has to worry about money, paying bills and rents Money and boyfriends define Jan What is Jan going to do without both of them Or is there much to Jan than these two This chick lit novel surprised me Although started slow at first, the novel picked up speed soon Jan s character is someone who you can relate to, partially Her friends, Lisa, Nichole and Becki s characters were all brought out very well, that I enjoyed their roles in Jan s life, much than Jan s life itself The snarky dialogues made me laugh and that s what I love in a chick lit and it was delivered perfectly The characters are well formed Jan s changes in attitude and life through a comedy of errors is well thought out and also delivered in a humourous way Here is a heroine you won t like, but would appreciate to know the story of Interesting read There are typo issues in the novel which at times affect the mood of the story A coming of age novel narrated with humor Recommended for lovers of chick lit novels.Full review and favorite quotes from this novel at Books Are Magic. An amazing book I really enjoyed this interesting and amusing book At first site, Jan seems to be a spoiled, rich girl, who is used in having everything taken care for her But as I kept on reading, I realized that this was just on the surface She is actually a lonely, insecure person, who has not really felt love and acceptance from her parents and growing up, she has trouble loving and accepting other people and above all, loving and accepting herself.I believe the author has done an amazing job, presenting the way Jan used to be and the way she changed and took control of her life I strongly recommend this book Jan has finally decided to grow up, get her life on track and take responsibility for her destiny Not necessarily out of a sense of it s what grownups do, but because she was cut off financially by her wealthy, but distant parents Between Boyfriends by Sarka Jonae Miller is a slightly quirky look at one young woman s coming of age as she sees how empty her life really was and how there truly was to life than shopping, boyfriends and appearances.Sarka Jonae Miller has created a light and fluffy reality check that, in hindsight, actually had some deep revelations and lessons in life As she gave life to her main character Jan, what I saw was a flat and shallow character, but as the story progresses, Jan gains some much needed personality and dimension It was the baby steps taken to the new Jan that made the story After all, the journey of life is taken one step at a time Filled with quirky characters, and enough emotional twists to make my head spin, I enjoyed the pace, which, at times seemed to be like a time lapse photo with words as we watch Jan morph from a self centered plastic princess to an enchanting and strong person Is this heavy reading, full of action and suspense Nope, it s a good chick lit kind of book where the heroine doesn t actually roar, but is definitely a stronger person for learning to live like common folk and look beyond herself I received a review copy as part of the Between Boyfriends Book tour stopping at Tome Tender soon Series Between Boyfriends, Book 1Publication Date November 6, 2013Publisher BooktropeISBN 10 1620151820Genre NA Fiction Chick LitPage Count 315Available from Barnes Noble I know the author She s smart and has a good sense of humor I m very much looking forward to reading her new book on my next vacation I highly recommend this book Jan is one of the most amusing and real characters I ve read about in a long time She is not your typical rich girl or typical mean girl, but she may seem like that on the surface Underneath, she is lonely and doesn t feel good about herself Just look at her parents and you will know why Many young women struggle to make friends, maintain relationships, and learn to love themselves You see all that in Jan I loved watching her change, though she was actually becoming of her true self Readers who love humor, drama, and people learning life lessons should pick up Between Boyfriends. |Download Pdf ♢ Between Boyfriends (The Between Boyfriends #1) ⚖ Between Boyfriends Is A Best Seller And Award Winning Novel At First Glance, Twenty One Year Old Jan Weston Has It All A Gorgeous Boyfriend, Fun Friends, And Wealthy Parents Who Take Care Of All Those Pesky Credit Card BillsThen Her Boyfriend Dumps Her, Her Friendships Fall Apart, And Her Parents Cut Her Off Suddenly Without Money, Without A Man, And Without A Plan, It S Time For Jan To Grow Up Determined To Get Her Life Back On Track, Jan Decides It S Time To Make It On Her Own Can She Find Her Way As A Single Lady In San Diego Can She Fix Her Friendships, Her Job Prospects, And Her Hair And Can She Keep Her Vow That She Ll Never Date Again, Even After She Meets A Guy Who Just Might Be Perfect For Her BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS Is A Sexy, Hilarious Story Of Living Life, Finding Love, And Growing Up But Not Necessarily In That OrderPraise For Between Boyfriends This Book Is The Ultimate Chick Lit Read A Light Hearted Romp Focused On The Travails Of Jan, A College Student Dumped By Her Boyfriend, An SDSU Student The Moment Proves An Epiphany, As Jan Resolves To Stop Dating And Find Fulfillment As A Single Woman East County MagazineBetween Boyfriends Presents A Unique Twist On The Chick Lit Genre Hollywood Vine Magazine Over The Course Of The Book, Jan, Who Is In Her Early S, Begins To Grow As A Person And Even Strikes Up A True Friendship With A Man, A First For Her Rancho Santa Fe Review Between Boyfriends Is A Delicious Slice Of Chick Lit Snappy Dialogue Sets This Story Apart From The Pack As It Follows A Young Woman Who, Financially Cut Off By Her Parents When She Fails To Attend School, Learns That Life Is Than Her Amex Card, And Reunites With A Mother Who Has Endured Her Own Brand Of Pain Jan Moran, Bestselling Author Loved the book, it s really a great read I ll be looking forward to the next book Keep up the great work for us girls. BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS BY SARKA JONAE MILLER A REVIEWCHICK LIT, Printed in 201, Smashwords Edition.This is a story of a young woman, Jan, who grows and matures as the story goes on.When the reader is first introduced to Jan, our main character is being broken up by her boyfriend of 8 months named Mike Jan is spoiled, rich, snobby and shallow She appears to have money than brains.We learn that Jan has dropped out of college before even taking a single class, and the only ones that know are her now ex boyfriend, her girlfriends and her father She is taking classes at a massage school to become a massage therapist on the advice of the now ex boyfriend Due to the break up, she swears off dating all boys This includes Juan, a classmate that she bonds with after being really nasty to him She takes up new hobbies on the advice of her neighbor best friend.We see her really grow when after a dinner party at her mother s house It was during this party that her mother learns that Jan has quit school and is now becoming a massage therapist This results in Jan being cut off financially and being disowned by her mother Jan now has to get school paid for, get a job, and support herself completely Gone are the days of MAC cosmetics, Starbucks Chai Teas and fancy hair salons.Through a comedy of errors of jobs that she does get, we see her becoming less shallow, of her own person.It is through her relationships with her girlfriends and two new friends that she connects with, Jan blossoms into a woman, from the girl that she was.This is an excellent read I enjoyed it from the first page and was sad to see the last one It has a rich story line, characters that you can relate to and a story that any woman can relate to see her own story in I was able to read this book in just over 12 hours because I enjoyed it so much This would be a welcomed book to have with you in the summer as you travel, read at the beach or enjoy on the deck with a good glass of wine or favorite cocktail.Highly recommended by this reviewer Can be found at smashwords.com goodreads.com BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a great read It s got everything you d expect in a chick lit book good friends, fun, and a little romance, but the thing Sarka Jonae adds to this story is a journey The main character, Jan Weston, is at first a snobby rich girl who judges her worth by what her boyfriends think of her She is rude to her girlfriends, wastes money, and spends way too much time looking down on others As the story goes on, however, you realize that Jan is the way she is thanks to a lot of blatant disdain and lack of emotional support from her parents She s only twenty one and has already been written off in her parents eyes.As a result of a comment made by her ex boyfriend, plus the fact that studying bores her to tears and she s convinced herself she s destined to fail anyway, Jan drops out of college and enrolls in a massage school instead Neglecting to mention it to her parents, who are footing the bill for her tuition as well as for her over the top lifestyle, Jan gets herself in a bind when they find out her little secret Jan is cut off, and now she is not only boyfriendless, but she s also penniless and hopeless.We start to see a real transformation happening in Jan, starting with her promise to herself to stop the madness of dating to focus on herself, her friendships, her studies, and her future career She s humbled time and time again by horrible bosses, bad hair days, and her dwindling bank account Jan finally realizes that to get anywhere in life, you have to give of yourself and put others first, which is a foreign concept in her family.I highly recommend this book Jan is a little hard to take at first, but give her a chance She s got a long way to fall from her lofty pedestal, and the ride down is a bumpy one The good news is that every time Jan gets knocked down, she gets back up again stronger, and with a little help from her friends, she finally finds a happy place BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS.
