Happy Release Day with a review!

Brief Summary:
Kristy Martin is twenty-something, single and living it up in Chicago. She has a crew of close girlfriends to keep her social calendar active, and is celebrating finally securing employment in her chosen field. While always free-spirited, Kristy is getting tired of the revolving door – or more accurately, bed – of random guys and failed dates, and comes up with a plan to get her act together when it comes to the opposite sex. That idea is quickly shot down by her bestie Breely Laver and replaced with a bet she can’t refuse – a free trip to Paris with her yoga instructor BFF if she can go six months without sex.

Enter in charming, sexy, delicious Grey Grahl. Kristy tries to navigate a spicy new relationship without giving away her bet, while also dealing with an incredibly sensitive crisis at her job. Her first year as a full-time elementary school guidance counselor starts off with a devastating situation with a young student, and Kristy finds herself struggling to stay above water in both her professional and personal life. With her girlfriends as a support system, Kristy navigates troubled times at the school and agrees to come clean with Grey.

This first book in a six-part girlfriend series introduces you to Kristy, Breely, Nora, Lauren, Tinsley and Scarlett, and takes readers on six individual stories about relationships, career choices, personal conflict and the bond of friendship. 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Samantha is one of the best story tellers who goes into detail, but not overly where you can still create your perfect views of the characters in your head. Her writing style will hook you and you will need to read everything she writes! When she decided to take on a series featuring a group of girlfriends, I was all in. I love series and this book is so realistic, it's unreal. Kristy is the perfect lead to start off the series; she's likeable, real, vulnerable, and you will think of her as a girl in your circle. If you want your first beach read, look no further than this 5 star book, xo!
