I cannot remember the last time I finished a book and immediately wanted to read it again. This story was so sweet and the story so much fun. I became a fan of Bateman last year, and now I look for her books first when I visit the library or bookstore. If you enjoy watching movies like "You've Got Mail" over and over again, then not only will you be unable to put 'That's (Not Exactly) Amore' down, you'll want to read it all over again once you're done.
I thought this was a really fun read. I especially enjoyed how Tracey Bateman wrote this book first person almost diary style- "I share all of this with my friend" or "Tabby and Dancy know I have some slight trouble with colors. But it's not that bad." It is fun to be inside of Laini's head! I also enjoyed the humour in the book. This was a perfect summer read for me.
Laini Sullivan is in a pickle. Not only has she left a career that she never really wanted, she is discovering that her "passion" may not be the career for her. After all, it's kind of difficult to be a successful designer when you're color blind! But now, she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with a police officer and a possible criminal. Whoa! Yes, Laini is in a pickle.Tracey Bateman is brilliant! Her situations are hysterical, and her dialog is worthy of a movie script. "That's (Not Exactly) Amore" is my first "Drama Queen" series novel, but it will not be my last. I plan to go back and read the two previous books even though I know the general outcome of those stories from this third installment. This book was highly enjoyable even without having read the predecessors. I recommend this book to any romantic comedy fan for a truly enjoyable read.
