    "He reached over to kiss her luscious (slightly boozy-tasting) lips, when suddenly he felt a gurgling and rumbling in his stomach, underneath those washboard abs...a wave of nausea came over him as he realized he should not have eaten her Slow Cooker Meatloaf...."I-I-I have to go...can't make it...t-t-t-to the bathroom!", he dumped her off of his sturdy lap onto the floor, a heap of blonde extensions, Wal-mart lingerie and seasoning packets..." He barely made it to the toilet before his romantic meal started to come out at both ends...

    My favorite part. As close to real life as it gets.

    readers instantly go brain-dead from the inanity of her efforts?

    But is the cover a montage of tablescapes?

    Later in that scene, Grace and Mike share their first kiss, and Mike displays some of his corny humor. The two have joked about their "non-date," and Grace asks whether they should consider it a "non-kiss." "I think we have to count it," Mike says. "Maybe even enter it into the national register of great kisses."
    Hurl.

    I can't wait to read this. This is going to be the worst book EVER

    (not to mention that probably the only writing Nasty Sandy actually did on it was signing her name on the contract)
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    She was actually in Philly last week - signing vodka bottles...she is SO trifling.

    I bet this is as bad as Joan Collins' foray into fiction writing.

    I gotta feeling this book is going to be like the drunk lovechild of Jackie Collins and Danielle Steel.

    You would have better odds of getting a good read by randomly selecting a self-published Kindle book (and probably 99.9999% better odds the person listed as the author actually wrote the book...)

    A person who has spoken directly with Ms. Lee about the book added: "This is the type of fiction that appeals to her target demographic of women but it is just that—fiction."

    Did anyone else read the book title as 'The Russipe Box' in their head?

    I can't wait to read 'Chapter 4: Hey baby, it's Kwanzaa - now go get me some Corn Nuts!'

    And you didn't go?!? What is wrong with you?!? I'm sure she would have happily emptied the bottle herself before signing it for you.
