Mike Edwards is not your run-of-the-mill, average woman. She is rough, tough, has an attitude, a foul mouth and the looks of a top model. Michaela, aka Mike, has just been fired from her high paying job in advertising. She is moving back home to live with her father and his new girlfriend, as she looks for a job in a town where she is on the "do not hire list". Things with her best friend Gunther take a strange twist, one she is not so sure she wants to take.
Gunther is a smooth talking Aussie, who looks as great as he sounds. He is a journalist who has managed to become friends with Mike. He is always there for her when she needs him and asks no questions, just be there. But lately some things have shifted and he is not so sure he wants to wait for her forever and thinks this might be the time for him to move on, or is it?
With her life falling down all round her, Mike has no clue what to do. Her job, her family, her friends, and her love life are all in turmoil; what is she going to do besides crawl in a hole and never come out? Gunther tries to help along the way and as some things improve for Mike, he still is uncertain about what he needs to do. Should he want more from Mike than being just friends or are they over as friends before they are even to get to be lovers?
What a hoot this story is! Mike is sassy and straight shooting. Gunther is every woman's dream man. This story takes the old saying of "When life hands you lemons. . . ". A multitude of emotions can be felt during Mike's journey. Her self-discovery can be related to by many of us who have at some point had to re-invent ourselves to get to the next level. A wonderful read to share with friends.
