McLaughlin, Emma, and Nicola Kraus. Dedication. Another ARC, this book is by the authors of The Nanny Diaries. Kate Hollis has a successful career but is still obsessing about Jake, the high school boyfriend who became a big rock star. Unfortunately, he used intimate details about his and Kate's relationship and other personal issues in many of his songs. She hasn't seen him or heard from him since he took off without any good byes thirteen years earlier. When Jake visits his mother's home (first time in thirteen years?), Kate's best friend calls to tell her that Jake is in town. Dropping everything, Kate gets a flight home. So flustered she doesn't even take any clothes. ? ?
Everyone tells Kate to get over it. I must add my voice to that chorus: GET OVER IT! I don't recommend this one.
