Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
Gorgeous, funny, and wildly uninhibited, her exes are a veritable "Who's Who" of Hollywood power players. At 28 (31), she is blessed with a firm (if curvaceous) bod, a designer wardrobe, a Daddy-subsidized apartment, and an A-list speed-dial.

But with her thirty-second birthday looming, our heroine is starting to panic. Who on earth (read: Hollywood) could possibly make Clarissa Alpert an honest woman? Enter Aaron Mason, the latest hottest new producer in town. From the moment Clarissa sees him, she sets her sights on making him the future "Mr. Alpert."

With the eager help of her vivacious (if neurotic) friends, her aerobicized Latina mother, her philandering (but loving) ex-con father, and the most divine gay waiter in Hollywood, Clarissa finds herself phoning the florist to the stars (his private line) and planning the biggest wedding the town has seen in years -- before the couple's first date. Catching Aaron's eye is not a problem. But it seems her intended might have his own agenda. Could it be Clarissa has finally bitten off more than she can chew?

Blurbs:
  • "Grazer gets Maneater right. The reader can savor this book's silliness while appreciating its cleverness equally well." The New York Times
  • "One of those gobble-up-in-one-sitting reads, perfect for summer." New York Post
  • "You'll eat up this funny look at an obsession with a Hollywood hunk." Cosmopolitan
  • "A hip, clever story that will have you laughing from the gut. Grazer does a marvelous job depicting vibrant Beverly Hills socialites while simultaneously poking fun at their shallow habits and quirky vernacular." USA Today
  • "The season's best beach read." Daily Candy
  • "Deliciously cynical, from the triple-cheek-air-kiss school." Chicago Sun -Times
  • "A scathing satire of L.A. society (to use the term loosely)...Grazer gives Clarissa just enough intelligence and spark to make her shameless antics deliciously entertaining." Publishers Weekly
  • "Naughty but nice...A transcendental study of post Prada/Prozac existential despair." Helen Fielding
  • "This is a very entertaining and lively book, but women aren't really like that, right?" Steve Martin
  • "Gigi Levangie Grazer's gloriously ditzy L.A. party girls make the women of Sex and the City seem like a bunch of stuffy New York intellectuals." Tom Perrotta
  • "Grazer...never loses sight of the hilariously self-centered, devilish core of her creation's personality...Clarissa is one for the ages." Kirkus Reviews
