I find ditsy, blond-stereotype girls very annoying, especially when they seem to believe that the whole world owes them a living. And this girl was all that. I liked it well enough for its genre, and I think that Miller has some great characterisations going on in the book. Guess that ups it to a 3. Jul 05, Kathy rated it liked it.

Jan goes through a journey of self discovery to find out why people boys inparticular find her "unloveable". Her mother disowns her after finding out she dropped out of college to become a massage therapist and she is cut off financially from her wealthy parents and is forced to look after her self.
Through learning how to take care of herself with the hel Jan is a pampered,self centered, boy crazy, snoby brat. Through learning how to take care of herself with the help of her friends she starts to understand how empty her life up till then has been and how badly she treated her friends and boyfriends by being a self centered, manipulative, bitch. I thought the book started out slow for me but quickly stepped up the pace. Although I hated Jan from the begining,I was routing for her to see the error of her ways, and turn her life around. I enjoyed reading about her coming into herself and growing up and realizing what is important to her.
This book reminded me a little of the charecters from Something Borrowed, and a Bitch called Karma. Its a good beach read, or travel book. I'll be happy to read the second installment. I would gladly recommend it to my friends. Oct 23, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-read-in After Jan is dumped, she swears off men. Her mother "disowns" her after finding out she dropped out of State school and is going to massage school instead.
Jan is cut off financially from her wealthy parents and has to find a job. Her first job is giving dog's haircuts and she gets fired. Her next job is working for a wireless company and she quits because she doesn't agree with ripping customers off. Finally she got a good job at a spa giving massages. It helped her because she wanted to be a massage therapist.
Her friends helped her through some rough spots. Jan is a typical young adult who doesn't understand why none of her relationships lasted. I felt like I could relate to Jan because I haven't had a long term relationship. Jan had a few good friends who she could count on when things got tough.
Becki, Lisa, Nichole, and Juan are just a few of Jan's friends in the book. A long with her hair stylist and her personal trainer. Friends are important to have because sometimes families don't get along. I look forward to reading more books written by Sarka-Jonae Miller. The book was well written, easy to read, and very enjoyable. I will recommend this book to my family and friends. Dec 16, BestChickLit. Very few people are lucky enough to know exactly what they want to do in their lives, or have the funds to get them there, and this is the perfect book for anyone who is struggling with this area of their lives.

Between Boyfriends takes a close look at her life and shows exactly what it takes to turn it around and earn a little self respect. Jan is not a likeable character at the beginning, although if we are honest there is probably a little part of her undesirable nature in all of us. In many cases she knows she is wrong but chooses to ignore it because someone else will clean up after her.
By taking a close look at herself, the consequences of her actions and what she really wants in life she manages to turn things around. There is no bright clarification point, but a slow process that takes hard work and humility. This is a fun read, great for over the weekend or while on holiday relaxing.
Oct 18, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: review-copy. I am not a huge fan of chic lit, but once in a while I read one I like. This is one of those books. I found the characters believable, the story enjoyable, and the writing pretty good. I liked the main character's growth and the way her relationships with those around her slowly change and develop.
There were some things in the ending that left me a little dissatisfied, but what happened was true to the characters and probably more believable than what I wished for. It wasn't without its flaws. T I am not a huge fan of chic lit, but once in a while I read one I like. There were some POV issues earlier in the book and the usual random typos, etc.
Other than the minor frustration of the POV breaks, nothing was serious enough to disturb me as I read. I can think of more than one person I know who would benefit from reading this book and maybe could learn a few lessons from the Jan about growing up and being an adult. Note: I received a free copy of this book for review purposes, but that has not influenced my rating or the review itself. May 02, susieqlaw rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads-providing-reviews. This story is about being young and making impactful decisions. Jan is the only child of two wealthy yet distant parents who pay for her college, her apartment, her fabulous clothes, her MAC makeup When Jan makes a pivotal decision to drop out of college and to go to massage school, Jan loses her parents' financial support.

Thi This story is about being young and making impactful decisions. This book is set in San Diego. The story is peppered with family secrets and the dynamics of Jan's relationships with her eclectic group of friends and her parents. I recommend this book. I read it quickly and hope for a sequel. A special thank you to the author for introducing me to this book! Apr 06, Kathy Brown rated it it was amazing.
This book was hysterical. The characters are insane, in a good way.
The main character Jan is a bit of a pampered princess, but she's in for a rude awakening when her parents take back their financial support. I can totally relate to her scrambling to pay her bills, figuring out what she wants to do with her life, and trying to keep her big mouth shut. I also love the flirtation with Juan. He's pretty funny too. I'm a sucker for a good "will they, won't they" storyline. I love how this book is r This book was hysterical. I love how this book is realistic even when things get a bit nuts. Everything is believable and I know a lot of people like the characters.

This book was a great surprise! I must admit that I really did not like Jan at the beginning of this book. She was such a spoilt and selfish individual that she is certainly a personality that one would love to dislike. It was great seeing her grow up, primarily out of necessity, but when the gradual changes begin to happen, I could not help rooting for her.
She had a great group of friends who really called it like they saw it and we all need that sometimes to bring about the positive change to This book was a great surprise! She had a great group of friends who really called it like they saw it and we all need that sometimes to bring about the positive change to help make us better people. I liked the character Juan, started off shaky in the beginning, but proved to be a really likeable character.
Hoping they get together. Jul 14, Cathy rated it really liked it. Jan was a prissy, stuck up, shopaholic, boy obsessed, little rich girl who dropped out of school, lied to her parents, and didn't value her friends. When her rich parents disowned her for lying to them and dropping out of school.
She changed herself for the better. She focused on herself, massage school, and her friends. She learned how important it was to have a job, friends, and family. This was a great coming of age story with a little humor and romance thrown in.

Hoping the author with write Jan was a prissy, stuck up, shopaholic, boy obsessed, little rich girl who dropped out of school, lied to her parents, and didn't value her friends. Hoping the author with write a follow up, I'd love to read more about Jan and Juan as she continues to grow up. Jun 16, Laura rated it really liked it. This was a cute book, the character Jan is a rich spoiled girl and expects people to do everything for her. She is finally forced to be responsible when her parents cut her off. She is forced to get a job and she learns to be a "real friend" to those around her.
I am looking forward to reading part 2, hopefully Jan will continue to grow into a more mature person who is responsible and likable. I enjoyed how Jan made a complete turnaround and changed how she acted. Sep 22, Jan Moran rated it it was amazing. Between Boyfriends is a delicious slice of chick-lit! A colorful cast of friends spices up the action. A fun, 5-star foray. A good read for Candace Bushnell "Sex in the City" fans who are looking for a new author to read.
Feb 12, Literary Chanteuse rated it liked it Shelves: chick-lit. I'm always pleased when I start a chick lit book that contains sassy characters and witty humor and this book has that in abundance.
The heroine carries a great deal on her shoulders which lends a lot of emotion to the story as well. I was expecting a bit more of a fairytale ending and for it to be just a wee bit shorter but otherwise a great choice for chick lit fans. Look forward to another book from this author.

I would have liked more emotions from her mom. What I really wanted to know was did Jan really sleep with Nick or did she pass out like Lisa said. I really hoped to see more of Juan he was amazing. Nichole was annoying at times and I liked how Jan realized how spoiled she was when Nichole invited her to the mall. Jun 26, Michelle rated it it was amazing. In the beginning I was very unhappy with the main character Jan.
As the book progressed however, and Jan was disowned by her parents, her character changed to a very likable person. I found that I really liked Jan after she had to learn how to live by earning her living herself. I am looking forward now to a book 2. This is a great feel good book that everyone will should enjoy.

This novel was great! I am normally not a chick-lit reader, but I found myself captivated by the story. I just want more, more, more especially more scenes with Jan and Juan. The character relationships were very realistic, and the characters themselves were captivating. I really enjoyed this novel and will be looking out for more books by this author and hopefully a sequel to BB? Sep 24, Teresa rated it it was amazing. I recommend it to girls of all ages!
The author did a perfect job of defining the characters I can see a little bit of myself in all 3 girls!! Mar 28, Lisa Buckley rated it did not like it. I was disappointed in the book.
