    1. 2 ½ stars. Not as entertaining as I had hoped. The heroine was hard to like and caused her own problems and humiliationORY BRIEF:Maxine (Max) was a prom queen and cheerleader in high school. Instead of going to college she married Fin who was wealthy through his car dealership. Max is now 40. Fin has been having affairs. His latest affair Lacey put a notice in the newspaper saying they were engaged. (This was before Max even knew about the affair.) Max and her teenage son left Fin to live with [...]

    2. Max Cambridge was totally in love when she signed a prenup, now Max is totally broke thanks to that very same ironclad prenup. It’s one hell of a messy divorce, so much so Max is forced to move in with her mother…in a retirement village…with her son. Because every good rich man knows to leave his ex with nadda. Max is in for it, especially since she’s never set foot in a Walmart before never mind having to apply to a job at a fast food restaurant.Whats worse? Applying to said job at fast [...]

    3. You Dropped a Blonde on Me by Dakota Cassidy is the first book in her new Ex Trophy Wives series. How could you not pick up a book with a title like that?Maxine Cambridge is being traded in for a younger model by her soon-to-be ex-husband. As if her messy divorce wasn't bad enough, Maxine has zero money and is forced to beg for work at a fast food restaurant (which she doesn't get), while she and her son live with Maxine's mother in a senior citizens' retirement village. But things start looking [...]

    4. Oh I really liked this book and am so glad I finally read it. Maxine (Max) is going through a long drawn out divorce from her slimey rich husband who has cheated on her with a younger blonder model of her former self. She and her teen son are forced to live with her mother in her retirement village as the slimey soonto be ex-husband has left her her with nothing and no support for Their son. She is over 40 and trying to get a job for the first time to support themt having luck at alle meets up w [...]

    5. This book was so utterly predictable from page one, but for some reason I just couldn't stop reading it. The story of a trophy wife passed over for a newer model, the husband screws her over, and in the aftermath she finds her old self along with a hot new guy. Don't know that I would seek this book out, but if you see it lying around and have a couple of hours free it is an ok read to keep you occupied.

    6. What I LOVED: Campbell Barker! If I could snatch him right out of this book and have him all to myself I would in a heartbeat. He was emotionally stable, understanding, and truly had more patience than anyone I have ever read. It doesn't mean there wasn't a time where I wasn't screaming at Max (Maxine) to get it already and screaming at Campbell to not put up with it any longer but it was who he was especially with her. Sometimes it is the other person that brings out the best in us. In fact, I [...]

    7. I tried. I really tried to get through this book, but I could not even get half way. Even though it's the summer of romance novels for me, life's too short to finish something I am struggling to read. I feel sheepish because the book is well received by others. The author is described as a great comedic talent by some. Yet I just could not get into it. In a romance or a chick lit book, I think one needs to relate to the heroine at some level and in this book, I just could not. She's too dumb, I [...]

    8. I'm a Dakota fan, let that be known first! A break from her paranormal, You Dropped a Blonde on Me, AKA, Suck it up, Princess for those of us who followed Dakota's video-blogs when she wrote this book, delivers in true Dakota style. Max is a walking suitcase with the amount of baggage she carries around in this book, but how she overcomes the many twists and turns that life gives her during a divorce will make the reader love her. If you're over 40, have gone through a messy divorce, and want to [...]

    9. You Dropped A Blond on Me is Dakota Cassidy's entry book into the world of ex-trophy wives. We meet Maxine, who spent 20 years busting a gut trying to be the woman and wife her older husband wanted. She sublimated her self into his wishes and demands. Ms. Cassidy treats us to pain, hurt, embarrassment and laughter. Sometimes even within the same chapter as her character strains to build a life for herself and her son Connor. I believe that Ms Cassidy has reached new heights in her writing and I [...]

    10. It has been a long time since I couldn't put a book down till I finished it. I laughed. I commiserated. I totally got it. I would recommend this to anyone who has ever come out on the short end of a long relationship.

    11. Cute but not as good as I’d hoped. Enjoyed the story of a woman starting over and how her insecurities rear their heads to her detriment. Quick read with likable characters.

    12. Originally posted at smexybooks/2010/12/revFavorite Quote: "How nice that two lonely people in the world had clearly made a connection. Now there’d be two less lonely people in the world. How very Air Supply."Maxine (Max) Lou Anne Henderson Cambridge didn’t know how low she had sunk until she physically threatened a teenager for getting hired over her at the Cluck Cluck Palace. But when your cheating scum sucking husband trades you in on a new and much younger model, leaving you with no mone [...]

    13. Cette très sympathique romance contemporaine est un vrai plaisir à lire, l'auteure Dakota Cassidy réussit avec un thème peut être pas très original une comédie romantique très fraîche, avec des passages drôles, des personnages attachants, le tout sur un ton impertinent et proche de nous.L'héroïne Maxine Cambridge est le style de bimbo blonde qui aurait tendance à nous énerver: la joli fille à forte poitrine et QI d'huitre, la pom pom girl la plus populaire du lycée qui par son ph [...]

    14. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewEt voilà mon premier Milady Romance! Je suis une grande fan de chick-lit et ce livre semblait parfaitement correspondre à ce que j’apprécie, j’étais alors très contente de pouvoir en découvrir plus sur ce roman de Dakota Cassidy. J’avais déjà lu plusieurs de ses livres paranormaux avec la série Accidentaly Friends mais pas encore quelque chose de ce genre. Le livre est assez épais mais il se lit vraiment tout seul une fois qu’on a commencé [...]

    15. If I had paid a bit closer attention to the series name and the blurb on this one, I probably could have avoided what ended up being a pretty annoying read.The main character Max comes across as this incredibly insecure, whiny, spineless woman that can’t handle the fact that her husband, who she married at 20 and is 20 years older than her cheated with someone half her age and left her and her son penniless after 20 years of marriage. Oh, yeah, he also did that for their whole marriage. Yet sh [...]

    16. Plot:Maxine had it all, but then her husband trader her for a younger model and she, thanks to an iron-clad prenup, had nothing. Forced to live with her mother in an retirement village, together with her son. No job, no future, and one big volcano of anger brewing inside of her. Then she meets Campbell Barker, and old classmate, and perhaps there is hope for an ex trophy wife after all.My thoughts:I always wanted to read a Cassidy novel, they all look so adorable and this one was sure looked so [...]

    17. I can't remember the last time I read a book that made me laugh so much! I truly loved reading this book. Max is a great character, and anybody who knows me, knows that I love a good snarky characterd it's not that Mex is snarky per say, but that she has a GREAT voice. Both her inner and outer dialogue is just brilliantly written. Maybe it's because she's 40. Maybe it's because she's pretty darn broken at the moment. Maybe it's because although she is broken and beat down you can see the brillia [...]

    19. Fabulous book. I am a 40 yo sahm (although not a trophy wife) so a lot of this book and the heroine resonated with me. I loved Campbelltalk about an awesome hero!! Adam tooFull review reposted from my Smitten with Reading blog:My Review:This book really resonated with me. I am the same age as Maxine and have spent the last 17 years of my marriage as a SAHM so I could definitely relate to the floundering of Max when her marriage suddenly went down the tubes.I really liked the forward by Dakota Ca [...]

    20. At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy this book… I picked up a romantic comedy and got a constant reminder of my own sucky divorce… but the more I read the more I realized I was able to laugh at those memories… it was nice to know that I wasn’t the only one who acted insane during that time of their life… even though Max’s story is a bit more extreme than my own and sadly I can never say I was married to a millionaire… the emotions were the same… the fear of making the [...]

    21. So, this read was even more enjoyable than expected. The premise - a trophy wife in the middle of a divorce, left with no financial resources at all, and living with her mother and son in her mother's retirement village apartment - seemed to lend itself to comic hijinks without even trying. Anyone that has gone through a painful divorce and has been forced to start over (perhaps with just as little as Maxine) can definitely relate to Max's over-reacting. Sometimes, you just do what you need to i [...]

    22. You Dropped a Blonde on Me by Dakota CassidyContemporary Romance- Dec 7th, 20104 StarsThis contemporary romance is a first for Cassidy, who usually writes paranormals. But after reading this book, I hope it will be 1 of many to come. In this book, the main character, Maxine looses it all when her husband leaves her for a younger woman and she is left with nothing. In fact, she has to go live in a retirement center with her mother. Did I mention that she brings her little boy with them in an elde [...]

    23. For this year's reading challenge, I was to read 5 romance books for the month of February. This was the fifth and final book (thank goodness!) You can tell how much I love this genre as it took me 3 months to finish this part of the challenge!! This really isn't my favorite genre -- it has to be a really great story in order for me to buy into it. I chose only one other contemporary romance for the challenge, so this one was enjoyable in that way, and I did like Maxine's psychoanalysis of every [...]

    24. No rating as I didn't finish this one. I got about half way through before I just couldn't read any more. Honestly, I'm not sure what I didn't enjoy about it. Yes, the characters are fairly flat (and that's a big thing for me) but the writing was fairly snappy and fun. I think my issue was that near every sentence was a complex one with a pop culture reference or some slang. Too much of something that would normally be fine and good. I also found that the chemistry between the couples just didn' [...]

    25. 3.5 starsI love Ms. Cassidy's voice. Her first three Accidentals [The Accidental Werewolf, Accidentally Dead, and The Accidental Human] brought a lot of humor to the paranormal genre, something I'd not seen or read previously. So when I heard she would be writing a contemporary romance, a semi-autobiographical one, no less, I had to have a copy. And she didn't disappoint.It's the little things Maxine "Max" Cambridge cherishes: finding employment, making money, spending said hard-earned money at [...]

    26. Though becoming emotional while reading a book is nothing new for me because I'm just a damn waterfallOh. My. God. This book totally rocked my socks off. Maxine is a fabulous, multidimensional character and one of the best heroines I've ever read. Throw in Campbell, a true knight in shining armor and you have a world-class love story. This book was SO damn good, however there were a couple of scenes where everyone was giving Max shit that kinda pissed me off. But, the grueling, tissue-filled jou [...]

    27. This was my first foray into one of Dakota Cassidy's books. I met her at the Lori Foster Get Together back in June and really liked her so I wanted to check out one of her books. And boy am I glad I did. I really enjoyed YOU DROPPED A BLONDE ON ME. It was a fun read with lots of humor but despite the lighter tone, the story still managed to have depth to it.In fact, I liked it so much that I already ordered the next book in the Ex Trophy Wives series and the first book in the Accidental series. [...]

    28. I picked this book up on a whim when Borders closed months ago. The cover was cute and the back flap sounded mildly appealing. I had also read some of Dakota Cassidy's other books. Little did I know how much I would end up loving this book. It is sharp, sassy and hilarious. Also incredibly heartwarming, empowering and gosh-darn it, hot as hell. I immediately fell in love witht he characters and flew through the story, not wanting to wait to see what happened to them. I especially love LOVE the c [...]

    29. This book was suggested by a friend because she thought the writing was funny. I agree, the writing was somewhat humerous. A tried and true tale of a rich trophy wife who is left by her husband for a younger woman (the receptionist at work, gasp)and is penniless thanks to a prenup she unknowingly signed. Maxine and her teenage son move in with her mom at a retirement village. Who doesn't like cantankerous old people?! The parts I struggled with was all the sex and when the author tried to turn t [...]
