Always A Bridesmaid for Hire by Jen Glantz

After moving to New York City in her mid-twenties to pursue her dream of writing—and not living on the “Upper East Side” of her parents’ house anymore—Jen Glantz looked forward to a future of happy hours and Sunday brunches with her besties.

What she got instead were a string of phone calls that began with, "Jen, I have something exciting to tell you!" and ended with, "I'd be honored if you would be my bridesmaid." At first she was delighted, but it wasn’t long before she realized two things: all of her assets were tied up in bridesmaid dresses, and she herself was no closer to finding The One. She couldn't do much about the second thing (though her mother would beg to differ), but she could about the first.

One (slightly tipsy) night, Jen posted an ad on Craigslist advertising her services as a professional bridesmaid. When she woke up the next morning, it had gone viral. What began as a half-joke suddenly turned into a lifetime of adventure for Jen–and more insight into the meaning of love than she was getting from OKCupid—as she walked down the aisle at stranger after stranger's wedding.

My Thoughts  
When I first heard the title I thought, what an amazing job as a bridesmaid for hire?   Are there really enough women out there that don't have enough friends to choose or do they just not trust their friends?
One by one her friends were tying the knot and she was ALWAYS asked to be a bridesmaid.  That must get pricey! 
When would she find her prince charming?  Brunching and going with friends wasn't working, dating sites weren't working, what gives?
If I had even 1 of some of the dates that she shares, I would swear off dating forever!  
One night after a few drinks, she posted an ad on Craig's List (which her mother told her NEVER to do) offering her services as a Bridesmaid for Hire!  She received so many emails!  Insane amounts!  She was also being asked to appear on lots of TV shows and interviewed for articles.
This book will have you in laughing and wanting to cry for her at the same time.

Cosmopolitan for sure, hey this is NYC!
