"Darby’s voice spoke to me immediately with its fast-paced, friend-centric, and contemporary style. I found it reminiscent of
Sex and the City and the Shopaholic series in the best possible way."

It’s never too late to put your best foot forward.

But forgiving her ex, Jake Saunders, might be one risk too many…
