On an "underground" assignment to write about the reality dating show "The Stag", Sarah learns more about her own marriage and love for her husband. Also a tongue-in-check inside look at "reality" shows.

I enjoyed watching Sarah Divine Holmes find and reclaim her pre-marriage self, and I liked her final take on "The Stag" hens.

Sarah Holmes is put to the ultimate writing challenge. Audition for the hottest reality tv show, The Stag (think The Bachelor) and make it on to the show. Once that's done, her job is to write an article about how the show is filled with bitchy desperate manhunters, and how the show is exploiting women and their inexplicable desire to nab a man even if it means humiliating herself on national television.

She does make it onto the show, and finds herself attracted to the Stag, and engages herself in conversations with these ladies, and discovers, her story may not take the path they're predetermined at all. Where is the desperation... the needy women clamoring for a man's attention... the imagined self-esteem issues that make these women undermine themselves? Where is the arrogant self-adoration that makes this guy think he IS the catch of the year?

As she competes with these women, she learns more about them, and not all is at it seems on the surface. These ladies have their own agendas, it's true, but it's not always about catching the perfect guy.

Will she be Bachelorette #1? How far will she go to get her story?

Oh, and did i mention... she's already married AND a mother?

This is a fast-paced read that delves into a women's psyche and self-worth, and exposes some truths about relationships. It was a fun book, and was much more entertaining to me than actually watching a reality show.

I actually enjoyed reading this. I might not tout it as some Great American Novel, but as an entertaining escape, Ms. O'Connell gets the job done. Especially relatable if you've got a husband and kids at home...

Total mindless fluff, but thoroughly entertaining for a reality tv addict.
