He’s married Eve is the type of girl who I wish would just love herself value her worth and realize that when a man gives you an ounce of attention that doesn’t mean he’s the love of your life Also these men BARELY ever asked about her life career dreams etc throughout the whole story Nope instead they spoke about their woes and their careers nonstop and she catered to their every need but at least they were breathing near her so it MUST be love And so this woman moves on from one man to the next in this close knit group and family wrecking havoc relationship wise and then she has the audacity to make it seem as though she is the victim going through soooo much in her messy life What really got me was her relationship with Henry What woman sleeps with a man finds out he has a girlfriend and thinks “Hmm you know who would be a better man to move onto? His married father who is twice my age and is probably the same age as my own dad” Just her internal monologue when having an affair with Henry was laughable when she claimed she could love him than his wife can and since Henry’s wife doesn’t pay enough attention to him Eve doesn’t feel bad about fucking him Um that’s called being a home wrecker Girl find a job and stop ruining households I mostly got through this novel because I was too far in to uit and I wanted to add it to my Goodreads collection but honestly what a waste of time Eve is a terrible person who wrecks families and relationship idolizes men the moment they look at her for longer than 10 seconds and she barely even grows as a person because she STILL isn’t working on or finishing a novel she’s wanted to write her whole life She’s learned nothing from being around these arrogant authors who think they’re writing the next Great American Novel God I’m glad she isn’t a real person because I’d stay far from her toxic ass
