Surviving the Rachel by Aven Ellis

(Image found on Goodreads)

Bree is experiencing life after college....and it's not at all what she thought. Having to move back in her parents, and desperately trying to find a job, while working as a cocktail waitress, she despairs of anything going her way, especially when the haircut that was supposed to represent change for the positive turns into what she considers a monstrosity. But when she runs into the boy next door, Jack, everything starts turning around. But Jack's been burned before and is insecure in their relationship. But can Bree do the same thing he did for her? Find the official description on Goodreads.

As always, Aven Ellis has outdone herself. The writing was well done, easy to connect with and hilarious, injecting just a bit of sadness in the story to make it not so much a fully happy, sunshine story. But she certainly creates a book once more that makes readers forget their troubles and just laugh. Laughter is the best medicine sometimes and if you're looking for some mixed with a sweet romance, than Aven Ellis' Surviving the Rachel is your perfect next read.

Bree's voice was happy, spunky and witty. And the fact that we don't actually get Jack's perspective allows us to learn about him from other methods. It's a nice change from getting both perspectives(although I really would have liked to know what was going on in Jack's head at times).

And the ending. Definitely a good one. It hurt(not always in a good way) but you still get the sweet, romantic feel that has been throughout the book.

Overall, Aven Ellis' Surviving the Rachel compares well with her other books and is definitely the medicine you need after a horrible day.
