Book Review-Perfect Girl-Michele Gorman

Tuesday, October 14, 2014


Carol is the perfect girlfriend, sister, daughter and perfect to everyone who meets her type of girl. She does everything everyone needs done in a perfectly perfect manner. She accepts workplace abuse. Her family calls on her to do everything from vetting wedding venues for her sister to finding the perfect caterer for Mom's parties. Her boyfriend takes full advantage of her giving personality. Heck-she even helps one of her friends by dating guys first so said friend who admittedly picks wrong every time-won't get taken once again.

But when something happens Carol wakes up and smells the roses. She decides not to be what everyone expects. It is time to take a stand! But can everyone accept the new Carol? Read the book!! You will cringe, you will laugh and you will sympathize-you might even see a bit of yourself in this book. Michele Gorman has done it again-a book you won't want to put down from start to finish (and I didn't)

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Cinderella meets Falling Down in this wickedly funny tale about having it all

Carol is perfect… at least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality she’s sinking fast – her family treats her like their personal assistant and her boyfriend is so busy with work that he’s got her single-handedly running their relationship. Not that her job is any easier. As the only woman on the bank’s trading floor she spends twelve-hour days trying not to get sworn at or felt up by colleagues who put the "W" in banker*.

How long can she go on pleasing everyone else before she snaps and loses it all?

With humor and empathy, Perfect Girl lays bare the balancing act that working women face in a man's world

*wanker (noun, British slang): an unpleasant or contemptible person
