    One thought on “On the Rocks”

    1. Really enjoyable I found the characters relatable, loved the relationships between everyone especially Bobby and Abby I found moments to be humorous and found myself quite often saying how happy I am that I don t have to experience dating in this day and age What a nightmare it seems to be I also think that the author did a good job of making me feel like I was right there experiencing everything in the story I felt like I was enjoying the rest of my summer with the gang in Rhode Island and it w [...]

    2. I only gave this novel a One star review The characters were not entertaining and rather annoying I couldn t connect with any of them and it wasn t even a good beach read, I ended up skipping half the novel and reading the last chapter and understood everything Meaning not much happened throughout the book

    3. I ll get it out of the way I was disappointed with Erin Duffy s new novel, On The Rocks I think it is because I liked her novel Bond Girl so much that I was so excited to read this new novel, and it was justh It is the story of Abby, who gut dumped on Facebook while she was trying on her wedding dress Nice premise, but it just moved so slowly after, and most of the characters in the novel were unlikeable that it was tough for me to engage Plus, maybe the whole dumped and dating scenario no longe [...]

    4. Erin Dufy s debut novel, Bond Girl, dropped the reader into the crazy Wall Street world of financial analysts Through the eyes of her protagonist, fresh out of business school and working her first big job, we saw the insane hours, the misogynist attitudes of some of her colleagues and clients, and the crazy things that people did to blow off steam It made my list as one of the Most Compelling Books of 2012.Her new novel, On The Rocks, tells the story of Abby, a Boston Catholic school kindergart [...]

    12. I hadn t actually planned to read this book after all The plot seemed fairly uninteresting no dentists, 80 year old obituary writers, men seeking their birth father and it was due back at the library with no chance of renewal Doesn t that sound dark I foolishly left for a soccer match with no reading material last night and had only the books in the car that I d meant to drop back off at the library on my way home Picture books galore and one junior novel I d already read and this book of Erin D [...]

    15. This rom com focuses on three women in their thirties back in the dating lane after failed engagements, divorce and jilted affairs It is set in 2014 in a summer beach town on the east coast of America In this novel all love is unrequited and there is not so much as a kiss I wish them better luck in a sequel.

    16. An okay beach read I really enjoyed her other, Bond Girl, much I couldn t quite get a grasp on the protagonist in this one She s take no prisoners with everyone except for her complete weasel of a fiance Things didn t really add up there But I loved the ending It wasn t what one would expect, and when can you ever say that about fun chick lit

    17. This was a fun beach read, not that I was on the beach The book had its funny moments, but some of the scenes got a little long It ended differently than I thought, which is always nice.

    18. On a good day, 2.5 stars.I was disappointed by this book I read Bond Girl after it came out five years ago and felt like the heroine in that novel was strong and capable The premise to On the Rocks sounded like it would be an enjoyable beach read, but I couldn t get past a few things I actually read the first 100 pages and had to put the book down for about a month and pick it back up when I was at the beach the only place this might be worth reading 1 After Abby s breakup with Ben, for the rest [...]

    19. The book begins with Abby finding out that her fiance is leaving her via his newly posted Single status on Facebook It s a really interesting hook and I was excited to see what would happen in her life Flash forward 6 months and 20 pounds later, Abby is depressed I m depressed too because the author mentions on nearly EVERY PAGE that Abby is heavier, Abby needs to lose weight, Abby has jiggly thighs now It honestly ruined the book for me Rant startingThe first chapter tells us that Abby weighs 1 [...]

    20. I really like this author and her style of writing Her humor must be directly aligned with mine I really liked the main character Abby I thought she was very well written I also LOVED Bobby He was so profound sometimes and had a way of putting things so simply He was definitely my favorite character Anybody up for a sequel told from his perspective That sequel would definitely need to include Abby in a big way I d also be very interested to see what the future holds for Laura as well Grace on th [...]

    21. Listened to this book on a road trip with my sister Though this book didn t have any explicit scenes which was much appreciated , it did have quite a bit of profanity throughout Both of us were disappointed by the rambling writing style and disappointing conclusion It was one of those books you finish and wonder what the point was.

    22. Pretty straightforward beach read The characters were a bit over the top but inline with the style Easy read that somehow already seems dated though set in 2012 see quick mention of Donald Trump ref in quick mention of The Apprentice.

    23. Quick read Fun story for 30 somethings going a thru breakup via FB Glad I am not in that FB break up generation Characters were kinda fun The beach recoveryah could work
