"I Heart Bloomberg" by Melody Carlson


About this book:

  “Kendall’s managed to wrangle her grandmother’s house—free and clear—except for the rules. No male roommates. But that’s ok, with the right ad she’ll pull in some girls, their rent and if she’s lucky, she won’t have to go to work any time soon.
  For their part, Anna, Lelani, and Megan all have their reasons for wanting to move in: Anna has got to get out from under her overprotective parents; Lelani can’t take another day in her aunt’s tiny crackerbox house overflowing with toddlers and Megan needs a place free of her current roommate from Hades. Though they come with assorted extra baggage filled with broken hearts and dreams, they will discover they also have a vast array of hidden strengths.
  As they struggle to become the women they want to be, they’ll find new hope and maybe even Kendall will learn a thing or two about life, love and the true meaning of friendship.”

My personal Rating-

Not the cleanest and definitely not the best by this author. Kendall really got on my nerves, but there’s room for her improvement for the rest of the series. She’s the Taylor in this series. Not really one book I enjoyed due to some content and comments.


See y’all on Friday with a new review!
