Book Review-1

OK, you convinced me! I'm doing book reviews. Please, please give me some constructive criticism. Tell me what I'm leaving out, what I should've left out, all that kind of stuff. So, here goes nothing...
Liz Ireland is a great chick lit writer. This book, The Pink Ghetto, is actually the 3rd book by Ms Ireland that I've read and I loved it. The story centers on 25 year old Rebecca Abbot who, in desperate need for a job, answers an ad for an editing job at a publishing house. She gets the job because of her previous employer, a famous name, not necessarily because she's well equipped to be a book editor.
The book is also about Rebecca's unconventional relationship with her roommate, Fleish, who is her old college boyfriend. They are now really good friends but, is Rebecca really over him?
What I love about this book is the many developed characters, a standard for the books I've read by Ireland. She introduces many different people into the story keeping it fresh and the plot moving. I like that because I can't stand slow books that take forever to get to the ever-predictable point. In this story, you will find yourself rooting for not only Rebecca but, her co-workers and friends, too.
I'm not sure how that was. Let me know. Read the book and tell me what you think. If you've read the book, let me know.
*EDITED TO ADD(for Lindsay)- I would rate it PG-13. I'm not very good at this. I know there was no steamy sex with "My heart raced as he ripped my blouse open with his teeth." There are no "throbbing manhood" scenes. There is alluded to sex.*
