The book is split into three parts. Part one is OK but written more like a how to book with a little bit of story in between. IE: how to start a blog about reviewing books, how to self publish, etc. part two was really good except for the cliché ending. Part three was the reason I gave the book two stars.
The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she's thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband's truck. After that, she's not sure what she'll do ... Maybe she'll adopt a cat.
Very quickly, Jana decides she doesn't need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don't Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.
Three years later, Jana has a New York Times bestseller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can't write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks...

WARNING: Although there are many adult situations in this novel, if say ... something crazy happened and a famous producer adapted this contemporary women's fiction into a movie, it would have a PG-13 rating. There are no erotic scenes, no graphic violence, and while there are a few allowed-on-TV curse words, there aren't a plethora of gratuitous foul words. Oh, and if you were looking for a cliffhanger, you won't find that here either. Some Lucky Woman includes all three parts of Jana's story. Please proceed at your own risk.
This was an entertaining book about an author who makes it big, including having her book accepted for movie. The woman struggles with relationships, a broken heart, but finds love in the end.
Jana found out that her husband got some other girl pregnant. After taking a bat to his truck, she files for divorce, leaving her with practically nothing. Without a dime and left on a tight budget to raise her son, she goes back to her love for reading in the hopes of starting a book blog that she could make money off of. She just had to learn how. Then she meets a man that loves to read? Interesting.
Soon, she starts offering services for book reviews and editing. Nice! Turns out that the library volunteer she’s been working with is a published author and tells her that she can get complimentary books directly from the author in exchange for an honest review. Even better!
It thought this was a pretty good read and totally relatable. But the story was too pedestrian. She goes on about the books she wouldn’t review if less than 3 stars or labeled as DNF. She even tells us what DNF means. Who doesn’t know what that means? This whole thing was almost like a how-to on getting your life started or put back together. I admired her persistence and go-getter attitude.
A pretty good read.
Really enjoyed the idea, not an overly sappy or raunchy love story. It was just what I was looking for in a book!
The characters were developed very nicely. Each character has attributes similar to people in everyday life. A few twists, especially at the end.
Very well written. Good book. Loved the storyline. Great job on behalf of the very creative author.
This is a story about how Jana had to change her life after her husband of so many years decided to cheat on her. Jana was devastated but went on to prove to herself that she could survive without help from a man. She did not only accomplish this but became famous. I enjoyed her story I will read her next book in this series
I really enjoyed this book. The writing just flows so naturally and the characters are believable, like you could be friends-if you knew a writer! Jana took my heart on a journey with her.
At the beginning of this book the author stated she but 3books together and I really am happy she did. I enjoyed the flow of the book. A highlight for me is the book took place over multiple years.
Did not see how they got together until they did. Wish we got to see more of the after. How did the movie turn out? Did he ever go back to school?
Wish we got a little more from Howard's perspective. Why did he feel like he did.
Great writing. Will be reading this author again.
