Blow me is the story of three single women-Skylar, Dawn, and Chloe-hovering precariously close to forty, and stuck in a lifestyle that they have long outgrown. Each woman is desperate in her own way to achieve some sense of stability. Skylar, a hairdresser/executive assistant who lost her job and burned down her apartment, is living out of her car; Chloe, a struggling actress/real estate agent with a heavy French Canadian accent who has never sold a house and doesn't have her SAG card, is searching for a way to stay in the United States; and Dawn, an MBA-educated dating service matchmaker who can't find a decent guy, is hedging her bets against the ticking clock by freezing embryos. They haven't achieved any of their goals, their lives are in complete chaos and their only hope is to be rescued through marriage. Situated in the shallow world of Los Angeles, this provocative novel in the style of Sex and the City provides a humorous, edgy look at aging, dating, and being single in the new millennium.

Hey Ladies, check out this book for a fun read! I heard about it through a facebook post and couldn't put it down.
It's a fun romp through the dating experience in Los Angeles (and I'm sure will ring true for all those in other cities too!) It will give you a chuckle and leave you feeling not so 'alone' in the dating world.
It's not just me! Everyone is going through it!

I found out about Lennie Ross by accident when researching something online. I came across her blog which was humorous and very well written. So, when I found out her book was coming out, I had to buy it—even though it's more of a chick book. I found her take on Los Angeles, women and aging hysterical and insightful. It read like I was watching a romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock. This is a fun fast paced novel of about 300 pages. I polished it off in two days. Certainly gave me some insight into the minds of the modern woman. Great stuff. Definitely recommend... to women anyway... not really a guy thing, but I got through it and laughed out loud many a time.
