Wing Girl: [wing-gurl] noun
1. A young, single woman frequenting liquor-serving establishments who attracts then later repels eligible men that are eventually picked up by her friends.
2. The essential accessory for dating in Manhattan.
For years guys have cruised bars using the “wing man” as a divide and conquer weapon designed to liberate a gorgeous woman from her not-so-beautiful friend.
Meet Belinda Carson, Wing Girl.
She’s a kick-ass, take-no-prisoners investigative reporter fighting for truth, justice and higher ratings. But while her fame draws in the hotties, it’s unfortunate that you can’t buy a new personality at Bloomingdales!
Because up close and personal these unsuspecting suitors get fried by a snarky attitude that’s sharp enough to slice a stale bagel…which leaves her grateful friends to swoop in for the delectable leftovers!
Only enough is enough – isn’t it time for Belinda to stop taking one for the team and land her own Mr Right?
This was a really great fun read. I loved it.
Belinda is a bit of a hard arse. She has this massive wall up and being a reporter is instantly accusatory when she meets someone. The thing is deep down she’s a big softie and her friends know that. She just needs to let a guy in. Let him see the softer side of her not the snarky person she is for her job.
So the girls, Roxanne, Aerial and Serena, decide its time she had a makeover. It’s bloody brilliant. The girls are so good to her not only do they make over her appearance they show her how to charm a guy so that the minute she opens her mouth they don’t runaway.
Roxanne asks her cousin Vincent to be the first test subject for Belinda and boy do they get off on the wrong foot. He is such a lovely man and Belinda is pretty horrible to him.
There’s this little pastry shop called Nick’s and it sounds amazing. I really want one of those in my life.
I loved the twist in this book and I have to say I didn’t see it coming.
I really enjoyed this book and I will absolutely be reading more of Nic’s books.
