About the Book:
Nicole “Coco” Martin is destined to have it all. As the only child of doting and successful parents, she has been given every opportunity in life. Having inherited her mother’s stunning beauty and creativity, along with her father’s work ethic and diligence, she has the world at her feet. Her graduation from Columbia is fast approaching, and with it the summer job of her dreams working at a magazine. Between work, leisurely weekends at her family’s home in Southampton, and spending as much time as possible with her best friend, Sam, life couldn’t be better—until tragedy strikes. Coco’s beloved parents are killed in a terrorist attack while on vacation in France. Now devastated and alone, Coco must find a way to move forward and make her way in the world without the family she loved. Determined to forge her own path and make her parents proud, Coco pursues her dreams, dazzled by exciting opportunities that come her way. Her goals are to think outside the box—and always play by her own rules. As she finds herself drawn to charismatic, fascinating men, each relationship will teach Coco new lessons, some delightful, some painful. She will come to realize what matters, and how strong she truly is—and in the end, she will discover herself.

My Review:
The book was fine. The main character, Coco seemed to be a spoiled, immature woman and I hated that about her. I also hated that she had so many men through-out the story. It was as if she felt her life wasn't worth living without one...but then on the other hand maybe it was the loss of her parents, in such a violent way, that made her feel so desperate.

The writing didn’t bother me and the characters were okay, but it was nothing spectacular. I love when books are thought-provoking, and I would read this, set it down, and not think about it once until I picked it back up again. I didn’t care for the characters at all, there was nothing that made me feel for them, and I found that I thought Coco was a bit annoying. It was a quick, entertaining read, though...well written and clever at times, but for me, not as enjoyable as I wanted it to be, however, the plot was able to take me away from myself and all the happenings right now.

Thank you NetGalley, Danielle Steel, Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine and Delacorte Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
