Dani Hale is an up-and-coming writer for the successful drama Flesh and Bone, where her fascination with drama and morgues distinguishes her work. She seems committed to her boyfriend, Dave, until her intuition suggests he is being less than faithful. With great intensity she investigates and confirms her suspicions, ends the relationship, and makes a valiant attempt to focus on finding a new man. As she travels down that path, it becomes clear that she is not up to the challenge of confining her trust issues to those relationships deserving of this discontent.
At first Daniís obsession with Daveís new relationships and the cautiousness with which she approaches dating seem like a normal reaction to the circumstances. However, the inappropriateness of her behavior escalates far beyond the norm and illustrates the appropriateness of the bookís title.
Whacked is a quick, entertaining, and effortless read that earn its rightful place on your bookshelf along the other books in this genre. While there is not much to distinguish it from the others penned before it, chick lit is such a booming area that Whackedís predictability is actually a positive attribute rather than a detrimental one.
