She's Gotta Be Mine - Jennifer Skully

This is one of my freebie downloads, from back when I was way less picky about freebies. I wasn't expecting much, but the writing is actually pretty snappy and fun. My only problem so far, which has the potential to balloon into something massive and awful, is the way Bobbie, the heroine, is dealing with being left by her husband.

 

During their marriage, she caved and did whatever he wanted. Now, she's determined to rub his face in what he's missing, and she seems completely unaware of the fact that every one of her choices still has his stamp on them, if only because she's choosing the exact opposite of what he'd have convinced her to choose when they were together. I hope she eventually realizes what she's doing and breaks free, and I hope it doesn't take 200+ pages.
