    For me it was extremely difficult to get into this book, or even finish it! There was no suspense, the story wasn’t there, and there was no development. In the end I had to skip some pages because it was just too boring. The author tries to include some mysteries to add something to the non-existent story, involving the parents of the protagonist and the designers she works for, but in the end they are not very plausible and somewhat irritating.

This book is predictable and not in a good way, it is not just the end the whole book has a flat line from start to finish. DO NOT GO FUTHER IF YOU STILL WANT TO READ THE BOOK An elderly respectable couple doing a sex-help video??? Interior designers that hate modern design and only like traditional (and tacky) décor??? These lame explanations truly annoyed me. Plus when the main part of a story is a person cheating in a couple it really annoys me when the author makes the other party cheat as well so that everything is solved!! Not realistic… too easy… in this book the end of a two years relationships and engagement takes place in a few pages of respective pleasantries. Boring. (Also not a “clean” Chick-Lit)

    This was a cute read. Entertaining is a great way to describe it and I loved every minute of it. This was my first novel by author Sue Margolis, and I think I started with the right one. SPIN CYCLE cracked me up. It was witty, and cleverly written... and not to mention sexy! That washing machine man really knew how to handle his load (*wink*).

It was witty, and cleverly written... and not to mention sexy! That washing machine man really knew how to handle his load (*wink*). Rachel Katz is a struggling comedienne who has accepted that her ex-husband left her -- for another man, convinced that her fiancé is cheating on her, worried about her son's obsession with Barbra Streisand, and trying to figure out her mother's sexy secret all at the same time. She meets and falls hard for Matt Clapton, the sexy washing machine repairman who understands her and supports her and sweeps her off her feet. All of these situations make for a hugely hilarious and romantic comedy. This is definitely chick-lit at it's best! Sophie Kinsella had better make some room on my list of top chick lit authors.

    Totally predictable chick lit, and not all that good. The main character is a comedian, so the book is crammed full of bad bad jokes, many of which are supposed to be funny. I probably wouldn't have read the whole thing, had I not been on a plane. Totally predictable chick lit, and not all that good.

Im guessing I'll forget what it was about within a couple weeks- it was that unmemorable.

    I bought this book at a friends of the library book sale. I wasn't expecting the explicit sex scenes. It was just okay as a book. Not awful, but not a favorite.

    I read a bunch of books from this author a while ago and they were both nearly the same, so I needed a break before I picked this one up because I knew it would be the same as well. And it was. Since all the sex scenes in all her books are all the same, I wonder how the guy who is married to the author thinks about it? It's books like this that make you realize how much of the author is really in them and am I ready for that if I ever get around to writing my book? Probably not.

It's books like this that make you realize how much of the author is really in them and am I ready for that if I ever get around to writing my book? Probably not. Anyway, Girl is dating/engaged to some dude who is totally straight laced while she has quit her job and is trying to be a stand-up comic. To make money for her and her kid, she also cleans houses. One of the houses she cleans, the washer dies one day and some Dude comes to fix it. Their relationship kind of comes out of nowhere, as the dude she is dating is away a lot, or something. Signals get crossed and chaos ensues and easily enough, while the dude is away, he meets someone else anyway, so the Girl doesn't have to feel bad about having a fling (which of course is now love) with the Dude. How perfect! Other details include the Girls friend and mother, who were oddly entertaining and the Girl's ex-husband who is now gay and she is slightly worried that her son might be too because of the things he says after he has spent time with his dad. That was a little annoying. It's all like, "I love gay people!" "But if my son is one, I'll be sooo disappointed and sad". Such a contradiction, which I hate. Grade: C

    This is a book I rescued from remaining unread somewhere. I just can't remember exactly where. I thought it might make a quick "light read" between my more pithy books, but it just didn't grab me. It wasn't exactly bad, but I guess I wasn't in the mood for the trials and tribulations of a wanna be stand up comic - single mom, and all the cast of characters in her life... the gay ex husband, the pushy mother with a secret, fiance who may be cheating on her, the son who wants to invite Barbara Str This is a book I rescued from remaining unread somewhere.

Can't do it. Sorry. There are just so many other books screaming to be read that I'm going to put it aside. It's just not grabbing my interest that much. The publisher blurb says "wickedly funny, shamelessly erotic" -- maybe I should give it to Bumma? :)

    A very quirky book! Rachel Katz's character oscillates between bad puns, some really funny jokes, and then slapstick. Her boyfriend, Adam, and she couldn't be more incompatible as storyline characters. Which made him disappearing early in the book just fine. A Stand-Up Comedian at night, Rachel cleans house for a designing duo. They are probably the most funny characters in the book. They speak designer speak, walk the walk, look the look... the author has captured this part of the book wonderfull A very quirky book!

They speak designer speak, walk the walk, look the look... the author has captured this part of the book wonderfully. Matt, a washing machine repairman/inventor, is the most charming character. I would have happily read another 100 pages to see this relationship develop. More dialog between Rachel and Matt would have been enjoyable. The sex scenes were more expressively written than many of the conversations. Overall I would say that the book is undeveloped, but having read other books by Sue Margolis I would recommend her and this book.

    So, another book I managed to re-read accidentally. According to my records read in March 2003 and again in February 2009. And it really didn't improve on a second reading. In fact, I'm surprised I don't remember how much I must've disliked this book on the first read through. The lead character is a stand-up comedian and yet I didn't laugh at any of her jokes. It was Borscht-Belt,men are from Mars, trite material. And there's more than one completely ridiculous subplot. I found myself skimming t So, another book I managed to re-read accidentally.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. More like 1.5 stars. Took a super long time to get to anything actually interesting, infidelity from multiple parties, relationship development was virtually nil, jokes weren't that funny, predictable situations, side cast marginally more interesting than the mains (which isn't saying much since the mains were terribly dull)... The list goes on. I didn't hate this book, but I do see it as a waste of my time and would not recommend it to others. Make up your own mind, of course, but I'd skip it. More like 1.5 stars.

    i am not a fan of romance novels but sometimes boredom and lack of satisfactory reading material force me to make do with what is available. which is why i have this rotten, dense and stupid book in my hands. i don't need to finish reading this before i say how predictable the story would be. anyhow, it's still better reading trash novels than bumming around doing nothing. at least i wouldn't be thinking hard when i get to the last page. i am not a fan of romance novels but sometimes boredom and lack of satisfactory reading material force me to make do with what is available. which is why i have this rotten, dense and stupid book in my hands. i don't need to finish reading this before i say how predictable the story would be. anyhow, it's still better reading trash novels than bumming around doing nothing. at least i wouldn't be thinking hard when i get to the last page.

    A pretty silly book, though harmless. My main beef with it is that the main character is supposed to be a stand-up comic, and we're supposed to think that her jokes are funnier than the "bad" jokes the "regular people" around her tell - but they're not. They're really not. They're also not original - ironic, since one crucial plot point revolves around her upset feelings when another comedienne "steals her jokes." Anyway, it was a quick, easy read, good for a plane trip. A pretty silly book, though harmless.

    i'm all about a quick chick-lit read, but this book was so annoying at times. i did get sucked into the story line, but seriously, some of the attempted witticisms were just too forced and irritating.....the law firm of "newter and spade"--come on, is that the best you can do? but, if you want a super fast read (like 2 hours fast) w/minimal entertainment value, this is suitable. i'm all about a quick chick-lit read, but this book was so annoying at times. i did get sucked into the story line, but seriously, some of the attempted witticisms were just too forced and irritating.....the law firm of "newter and spade"--come on, is that the best you can do? but, if you want a super fast read (like 2 hours fast) w/minimal entertainment value, this is suitable.

    I originally bought this book because of the author’s last name. Well it turned out to be a legitimately funny book about a struggling female comedian in Britain trying to sort out her love life. He relationship with the dentist is going nowhere...until she meets the washing machine repairman. A good read and genuinely witty but still a campy romance book.

    This book had me laughing and I was repeating these jokes to my husband. I love the joke she says while she is on stage and thinks she is doing terribly. She says to the audience that she thinks wearing a diaphragm is a pain in the ass and a lady in audience heckles her by saying, that's cause your putting it in the wrong place! It is a fun, light read. This book had me laughing and I was repeating these jokes to my husband. I love the joke she says while she is on stage and thinks she is doing terribly.

    A cute book about a standup comedian whose husband left her and their son for another man, whose fiance is a dentist who seems to be a germaphobe, and whose attraction to the washing machine repairman makes her think twice. It's good for a laugh or two, with a few erotic scenes and worth it if you want a lighthearted comedy romance. :) A cute book about a standup comedian whose husband left her and their son for another man, whose fiance is a dentist who seems to be a germaphobe, and whose attraction to the washing machine repairman makes her think twice.

    Thought this chick-lit book would be funnier, since the main character is an amateur stand up comic. It was a light read with lots of quirky characters, but still not very funny. Best described as a mediocre sitcom with an annoying laugh track. Also, I did not care for the crass sex scenes.

    A bit too much smut for me. My mother-in-law read another one of her books and we were in agreement with how little she left to the imagination. I'm not into reading steamy romance novels so I didn't enjoy this book. A bit too much smut for me.

    Cute, fast read. Doesn't require much thought, which was exactly what I was looking for. There are definitely times then I just done't understand all of the English humor/references, which might have made this book more humorous. Cute, fast read.

    Um, I got this book without realising it was a bit of erotica..... so was a little surprised! In the end it had a great ending so I enjoyed it. Probably wouldn't read this author again, just simply because it's not my kind of thing! Um, I got this book without realising it was a bit of erotica..... so was a little surprised!

    The main plot was dreadful. The side stories even more so! The pace of the book is awful, deadly boring when you are lucky, annoying when you are not (see the mysteries of the parents and employers)

    Rachel Katz is trying to make it as a single mom and a stand-up comic. True, she is funny, and so are her mishaps in this story about how everyone always gets exactly what is coming to them.
