ABOUT THE BOOK:
Lex Sakai’s family, big, nosy, and marriage-minded, is ruled by a crafty grandmother. When her cousin Mariko gets married, Lex will become the OLDEST SINGLE COUSIN in the clan, a loathed position by all single female family members.
Lex has not dated for years.
Grandma homes in on this fact and demands, bribes, and threatens Lex to bring a boyfriend (not just a date) to her cousin’s wedding.
Lex does not want to date ... not since that terrible incident a few years back ... but, Grandma doesn't give her that choice.
Lex's options are slim because she has used her Bible study class on Ephesians to compile a huge list of traits for the PERFECT man (and the more she dates, the more she adds to the list).
The one man she keeps running into (and is completely attracted to) doesn’t seem to have a single quality on her list. It’s only when the always-in-control Lex loses control and lets God take over that all the pieces of this hilarious romance finally fall into place.
My thoughts on this book:So far I'm enjoying it a lot. Lex has a sort of snappy and condescending attitude at times, but I suppose she has a pretty good reason to be disparaging towards some of the other characters. Especially Mimi. That date with George was so hilarious! In fact, I don't think I've ever read a funnier scene in a chick lit novel. The internal thoughts Lex had were a scream!!! And I've never read a story with a more clumsy character. That slapstick humor will make you cringe and smile. Just don't read this story with your mouth full or you may spew food on the book. I think the only thing she hasn't done so far is throw up on her shoes. Oh, and I'm on chapter 14. I can't wait to see how this all turns out. I'm definitely hooked. :) Go Camy!
