This book is so over the top and ridiculous, with references to Eva Peron and Aristotle Onassis and Scarlett O'Hara... and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were some cringeworthy moments (racial slurs, nice to see you again), some corny moments (see: O'Hara, Scarlett), and yet, I couldn't put it down. I'm also completely inured to the birth secret plotline from watching Korean dramas, so I didn't have any WTF outrage. I've also totally fallen down the Susan Elizabeth Phillips rabbit hole (3rd book in 2 days), so there's that. I liked seeing Ted from Call Me Irresistible as a boy in this one. Bottom line: The book is kind of dated so it might not be for more contemporary fans, but if you grew up on soaps or 80s ridiculousness like Dynasty and Designing Women, you may like this one. NO NUKES!
