Latest Chick-Lit Review - Done with Men.

When Fate begins to turn the final screw on Kay’s world, and the latest man in her life has failed to match her expectations for true love, a holiday seems like a great idea. Her best friend and flatmate Baani has a persuasive stance and sets a plan in motion to save Kay from herself. Besides, with Baani along for company, Kay vows to stay on the straight and narrow. What has she got to lose in mixing a work assignment with pleasure? Famous last words, one might say, when her ex happens to be holidaying in Goa with his latest girlfriend.
Trying to drown ex lovers at the bottom of a glass whilst smoking weed is far from the best pain-killer, any more than a tattoo parlour will truly serve to declare Kay is “done with men”. Sadly, drunkenness has its pitfall, and accidents can occur all too easily. While Kay ponders whether she’s awakened in Heaven - due to a godlike creature tending to her needs - Baani’s presence reassures her she’s safe in hospital. If that is so, has Fate chosen Dr. Vivian D'Mello as the ultimate torture, and can Kay live up to her tattoo? Done with Men is funny, vibrant and true to the chick-lit genre.
