Review: Smart Girl






Brilliant designer Miko Jin is a hopeless romantic. She’s spent most of her life falling in love over and over again…with the men she finds in the pages of her favorite novels.

When Miko meets Liam Ashton, it’s love at first sight. At least, for her. Sure, the two of them are polar opposites, and yes, he seems to be dating someone new each week. But Miko knows what true love is and that you can’t rush it—after all, what she lacks in real-world experience, she makes up for in book smarts. With novels as her guide, and her best friends by her side, she knows she can get Liam to love her back. But just like any good romance novel, fate has a few plot twists in store. Will Miko get her own happy ending? Will she find the strength to stand up for what she deserves even if it means breaking her own heart?





Alyssa’s Review

Rachel managed to take a book and put ALL book lovers things into it. I mean who doesn’t want to try to catch a man using things fictional women did to unknowingly catch the attention of their fictional man? Heck, I try them on my husband daily haha. But seriously, I had my doubts about Liam from the get go. Yes he’s handsome and all things fictional men should be, but he was also very self-centered. Miko was so blinded by her desire to be with him that she missed it all. I loved Miko though, her and I relate on so many levels. Lists, books, lists book. I just can’t design a thing to save my life, but hey… Lists and books! In the end Liam comes out to be the perfect man and all becomes well in the world again! Keep writing Rachel.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief

I am Rachel Hollis. A wife, a mother, a Southern Girl, an LA Woman, and for all intents and purposes Party Planner Extraordinaire! I LOVE parties… I love everything about them. I love the food, the wine, having friends and family and people from all walks of life together in one well-decorated space! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a good party… and if there are people out there who don’t, maybe that’s just because you haven’t been to one of mine!

I grew up in a big loud Okie family. Daddy was a Pentecostal minister and Mama was the church pianist… and PS, I know the words to all the old-timey hymns in case you want to break into three-part harmony later. I moved to Los Angeles to go to college and promptly met a boy named David who was as handsome as he was funny. First I made that boy my best friend, and then I made him my husband. 10 years later we have three equally handsome/hilarious little boys named Jackson, Sawyer, and Ford. We live in LA where we spend our time doing super cool/sexy things like going to soccer practice and hitting up any restaurant where kids eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée.
