Hello Giggles "17 Books We Can't Wait to Read in August 2017"

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, searching for a spark to jump-start her life and give her a sense of purpose. She's had as many jobs as she's had bad relationships, and now she's feeling especially lost in her less-than-glamorous gig at a pie-and-fry joint in Los Angeles, where the uniforms are bad and the tips are even worse.

Then she collides--literally--with Adam, an intriguing, handsome, and mysterious painter. Their serendipitous meeting on the street turns into a whirlwind one-night stand that has Charlotte feeling enchanted by Adam's spontaneity and joy for life. There's promise in both his words and actions, but in the harsh light of morning, Adam's tune changes, leaving Charlotte to wonder if her notorious bad luck with men is really just her own bad judgment.

Months later, a new relationship with Seth, a charming baseball player, is turning into something more meaningful, but Charlotte's still having trouble moving past her one enthralling night with Adam. Why? When she searches for answers, she finds the situation with Adam is far more complicated than she ever imagined. Faced with the decision to write a new story with Seth or finish the one started with Adam, Charlotte embarks on a life-altering journey, one that takes her across the world and back again, bringing a lifetime's worth of pain, joy, and wisdom.

This book was very light, a quick read. Unfortunately I found the characters, especially Charlotte, superficial and disappointing. She just happens to be gorgeous..oh, but doesn't realize it and puts herself down. She is attracted to two men at the same time, the first one (SPOILERS.......) conveniently dies, but not until she's had meaningful time with him. and oh wait, the good looking, athletic, sensitive ball player has waited for her, and she gets to pick up where she left off. Disappointing, full of stereotypes and clichés.
