Goodreads Summary: 
It's the holiday season, and each of the roommates at 86 Bloomberg Place is a little blue . Megan's got the boss from hell, and now her mom is going on a cruise, leaving Megan alone for Christmas for the first time ever. Lelani can't afford to fly home to Hawaii and isn't sure she'd be welcomed anyway, not that she can admit that to anyone. Anna's old boyfriend—the one who cheated on her—has sailed back into her life, just when she's met a for-real "nice guy" she's been keeping secret from her large, crazy Latino family. And Kendall's met a famous actor, who might be the answer to her money woes—if she could only convince him she's the love of his life. His wife might have something to say about that, though. Thank goodness God's around to listen when the girls need help!

Let's face it, relationships are hard work—whether they're with family and friends, coworkers and customers, or boyfriends and girlfriends. And when you've got your first apartment, a real job, and grown-up responsibilities, too, relationships are loaded with confusion, emotion, and secrets you can't tell to anyone but God. Best-selling author Melody Carlson has captured all the uncertainty and joy of being twenty-something in pitch-perfect detail—and their stories just might sound like someone you know.


 My Review:

"The truth is I'm still trying to figure things out myself," she admitted. "Sometimes life doesn't seem totally black and white. I think I used to believe that. But the older I get, the more I question this."

When I first started this book I was very unsure of it. Thankfully it surprised me and the majority of the problems I had with the first one weren't in this one. Well besides Kendall, but she is a work in progress and she did start growing up a little in this one.

In this one I really did see what everyone else was saying about Megan being a preachy Mary Sue type character. I really wish she would stop and think a little before she tried to act so high and mighty towards the other girls.

As for Anna and Lelani I really like how they have grown as characters and even though they did have issues to sort out this time around they ended up making up and working together and I can't wait to see how they grow as friends in the future.

Honestly I don't have much to say about this book because it is a quick read that was filled with several surprises and of course Kendall's shenanigans.
