Falling for You - Jill Mansell

Appalling book.

 

You have heroes calling the heroines in this one fat to their faces and to strangers. One woman just puts up with her boyfriend treating her like crap, and when he gets with someone else is not nasty to her. It's implied because he really cares for the second woman, and only felt meh towards the first so that's okay that he was a misogynistic and nasty asshole. 

 

You have constant bed hopping (not that I care, but you can't root for a freaking couple that way when you know they just slept with someone else).

 

The why behind why the two leads can't be together is terrible. I just felt bad for them and wondered how they wandered into this appalling book. 

 

And a man blackmails his mistress into having no life and ughhh this whole book is awful.
