Product Description

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.

Author Bio

Over the years, Melody Carlson has worn many hats, from pre-school teacher to youth counselor to political activist to senior editor. But most of all, she loves to write! Melody has published more than ninety books for children, teens, and adults—with sales totaling more than two million and many titles appearing on the ECPA Bestsellers List. She lives in Central Oregon with her husband and chocolate lab retriever. They enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping, and biking in the beautiful Cascade Mountains.

Publisher's Weekly

Carlson, author of more than 100 books, begins her 86 Bloomberg Place series with a novel that functions mostly to set up future storylines. Three women rent rooms at 86 Bloomberg Place: Lelani Porter is a lovely half-Hawaiian with a secret; Megan Abernathy is a Christian flirting with depression; and Hispanic Anna Mendez is anxious to escape a smothering mother. The advertised “luxurious” house, owned by Barbie doll clone Kendall Weis, is disappointingly in need of updating, and in exchange for a rent reduction, they redecorate and renovate the run-down home. Kendall turns out to be the landlord from hell, with entitlement issues, an eating disorder, a shopping addiction and a slew of (too many) other problems. It’s more than the trio bargained for, but nobly they try to be kind to Kendall. The Christian element is present in the story, but lightly handled. A subplot of young women gone missing seems at odds with the beauty makeovers and HGTV-type activities. Although Carlson is careful to explain the reasons behind Lelani’s absence from her home in the islands, readers may find her seemingly unemotional abdication of responsibility difficult to swallow, while Kendall’s character is one-dimensional. The novel ends abruptly without resolving enough loose ends—likely picked up in book two—but leaving readers dissatisfied rather than intrigued. (Apr.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    While I enjoyed the book, I was a bit disappointed with the way it ended. I understand having a cliffhanger, but this seemed to fall off of the cliff, without warning. I'm happy to know there is q sequel. On the positive side, the list of characters are great and enjoyable. There stories are believable. I can't wait to see how they develope.

    What I've always enjoyed about Melody Carlson's books is unique and fresh and just keeps you wanting more. I think what I liked best about this book was that I could totally relate to the main characters (well 3 out of 4). They are all the same age as me and are in the same stage of life as I'm in. Megan, Anna and Lelani are three different girls with very distinct personalities yet they all blend very well together. They get along almost immediately from the start yet it's not fake friendships. They have a take charge attitude and since they are also businesswomen they are able to negotiate and make deals when needed. The romance in this book is light and not really a main factor but there's just enough to keep things interesting.Kendall, on the other hand, completely turned me off from the start. I know I shouldn't be judgmental on someone because of their looks but right from the moment Kendall was described I didn't like her. Then her attitude, actions and personality just validated my I wanted to slap Kendall so bad while reading this book. She was one of the most stuck up, spoiled, lazy, clueless person I have read in a book. Honestly, I had to put down the book and scream during certain scenes. She just annoyed me so much that I just wanted her to be gone. Since I have read the other books in the series that she does change but it's a long and slow processOverall I really enjoyed this book. They are perfect for the twenty something group but even if you aren't that age, you'll enjoy the story. The relationship between each girl and her mother plays a key role throughout the entire series and in this book you begin to see glimpses of how each girl is shaped because of her mother. It's a fun, light quick read and once you start this book you're going to want to read the other so be sure to have the rest of the series on hand! This book is probably one of my favorite chick lit series of the year. HIGHLY recommended.

    I've been a fan of Melody Carlson for years now and have yet to read a book she's written that I haven't enjoyed. I Heart Bloomberg was a delightful setup for the series, which has three more books to come by 2009. In this first book you spend a lot of time getting to know the individual characters. The four women each have their own point of view. There is your stereotypical spoiled but beautiful brat, your sensible and intelligent girl, the smart and wounded but beatiful girl, and the well-rounded and attractive girl who doesn't see herself that way at all. They are a delightful bunch, and so are the men in the story. There wasn't much of a romantic element in the book, which took away some of the thrill for me as I love great romance novels. But I'm thinking there may be some touching moments in future books in this series. It appears that the author has set things up to head in that direction, which means I will HAVE to read them to find out. Overall, I'd say this was an enjoyable read. Kind of like a clean Melrose Place--minus the gay neighbor. I zipped through it in less than two days and I never got bored with the story even though there wasn't much angst or real drama in the novel. So if you like a light, feel-good story (with few tense moments) that is about four young women trying to share a house and get along, you'll like this story. Some of the ladies had issues, but I didn't feel like I got to know them well enough to feel their pain yet. I want to read the rest of the series to see how they change as they rub shoulders with each other and learn to get along.
