Blurb or Synopsis: Another fun DOWNTOWN PRESS book. In DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, Katie meets a new boyfriend and moves with him to London. Michael is a very popular good looking guy, and has a reputation for not committing. But Katie thinks he's the one. Michael's best friends Sally and Jude had watched as he constantly meets women and goes from one to another. Sally, by the way, is one of his many ex-girlfriends, but for some reason the two have remained best friends. What Sally can't admit is that she's still in love with him, but she tries to push those feelings away.
Things get complicated as Katie gets herself pregnant, and she and Michael plan for the baby. But Sally knows better, that he's freaking out and sooner or later he's going to run off again. Katie however is excited and thinks that she's got a future with him.
Jude is the friend that stands watch while her best friend Sally makes a fool of herself over Michael, a guy that had treated her horribly in the past and doesn't' get that she's still in love with him.
What i really liked about this book was how complex these characters were. I don't think they write chick lit like this anymore. It was a fun read but at the same time, it's not one dimensional but ultimately the characters do feel realistic, especially with the fact that it's not quite a happily ever after type of book. I recommend DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
