40 – Just Like Me, Only Better by Carol Snow

Here’s the Goodreads summary for this book.

“Ever since Veronica’s husband found the love of his life-not her-she’s been a walking zombie with runny mascara. It doesn’t help that she keeps getting mistaken for Haley Rush-the Hollywood starlet whose dazzling life is plastered on every magazine.

When Haley’s manager offers Veronica a job as a celebrity double, it only takes a moment before she says yes. Veronica gets to drive Haley’s car, wear her phenomenal clothes-and have fun with her hot celebrity boyfriend, Brady Ellis. Too bad the job’s only part-time, and at the end of the day she has to return to her life as a cash-strapped substitute teacher and cub scout mom.

But when real sparks fly with Brady, is it a fantasy come true or a disaster in disguise?”

Sounds like it’d be a decent book with a cute story, right?  Um yeah…let’s just say I’m glad I only paid $1.99 for this book.

This was a pretty predictable story. The main character, Veronica, was likable enough, but she was so naive that it got a bit annoying.  And Haley?  Her story was basically like any Disney channel girl gone wrong.  Like I said…predictable.

But…all in all…it wasn’t terrible.  I don’t know if I would have enjoyed the story as much had I not read a sad and dramatic book before this one. I needed a light, fluffy, and predictable read and this one fit the bill.
