A woman who supported her musician lover as he worked his way to rock-star status suddenly finds herself dumped for a Brazilian supermodel, causing her to seek solace in a sisterhood of women who have been jilted by successful men--and are out for revenge.

Simon and Schuster
Brooke loved reading the dishy celebrity gossip rag Last Night. That is, until her marriage became a weekly headline.Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform “Hallelujah” at a dark East Village dive bar.Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs—as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls’ school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant—in order to help support her husband’s dream of making it in the music world.Things are looking up when after years of playing Manhattan clubs and toiling as an A&R intern, Julian finally gets signed by Sony. Although no one’s promising that the album will ever hit the airwaves, Julian is still dedicated to logging in long hours at the recording studio. All that changes after Julian is asked to perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno—and is catapulted to stardom, literally overnight. Amazing opportunities begin popping up almost daily—a new designer wardrobe, a tour with Maroon 5, even a Grammy performance.At first the newfound fame is fun—who wouldn’t want to stay at the Chateau Marmont or visit the set of one of television’s hottest shows? Yet it seems that Brooke’s sweet husband—the man who can’t handle hot showers and wears socks to bed—is increasingly absent, even on those rare nights they’re home together. When rumors about Brooke and Julian swirl in the tabloid magazines, she begins to question the truth of her marriage and is forced to finally come to terms with what she thinks she wants—and what she actually needs.

Even by the standards of chick-lit and beach reading, this book was light and unbelievable. Her other books are better. This one drags and has a truly improbable ending.

The best of her books, I think. This story of a young man who makes it in the recording business and his young wife explores a topic that is fresh. The excitement and the heartbreak seemed very real. The effects of publicity in the lives of these 2 people is devastating, yet it helps to ground them for the future. I really enjoyed this book. A good summer read.

I liked this more than her other three books actually. A good summer chick-lit.

Definitely not one of Weisberger's best books, I didn't even finish it. There was almost too much detail in the storyline and I just culdn't get into it.

This is one of those guilty pleasure type books. No brain power required, yet fun. A great book to curl up with on the beach!

I had a hard time staying with the book, boring and predictable.

This book was a major bore. I persisted thinking it would get better, but it was a colossal waste of time.

Enjoyable despite being a tad predictable. Details how a relationship changes when one of the participants becomes famous overnight.
