Synopsis: MacAllister “Mac” Barlow thought she was living the life she always dreamed of. When she catches her fiancé in the act with his secretary, she high tails it out of their apartment without looking back. Looking for a new life, she drowns her sorrows in a pitcher of beer at Tony’s Pizzeria.
Darcy Pepper isn’t one for long-term relationships. Bouncing from guy-to-guy to get what she wants isn’t satisfying her anymore. Walking out on her current boy-toy, she finds herself at a tiny hole-in-the-wall pub. More disappointed in herself than she’s ever been, she sees Mac, a girl she vaguely remembers from high school.
Left flat broke, the girls quickly enlist the help of a waiter at Tony’s and before they know it, they’ve got an apartment, jobs, and possibly even love interests beckoning.
Maybe things aren’t so hopeless after all.

Review: Omigosh! Dawn and Magan had me laughing so hard! This book is hilarious! And there were times that my heart raced as Mac or Darcy had a close encounter with the opposite sex.
MacAllister and Darcy are both down on their luck and complete strangers to each other basically. Darcy remembers Mac from high school. They ended up meeting on a stroke of luck at a pizzeria. One said pizzeria that is ran by B-Rad (Brad really). He overhears their dilemma and offers them a place to stay. It isn’t much, but it’s all they can afford right now. It just so happens to be right across the hall from B-Rad too. Lucky for him!
At first both girls think that B-Rad is creepy, but soon Darcy realizes there is more to him than meets the eye and his friend Preston seems to have his eye on Mac.
They both decide to delve into the world of self publishing together hoping to make it big! Or just big enough to make it through life on more than ramen noodles.
Reading through their turmoil was a hilarious trip! I can’t wait to read the next book!
