Shizzle, Inc by Ana Spoke, A Review



About Shizzle, Inc (from Amazon):

Isa Maxwell is an average busty blonde, a recent graduate of a community college, and rap-loving, gun-toting, self-proclaimed badass. More than anything else, Isa wants to be discovered, so that she can solve her financial woes and win back Brad, the love of her life.

Thanks to her clumsiness, street smarts, and an unbelievable bit of luck, Isa lands a dream job at Shizzle, Inc. Things start to look up when Mr. Hue, the playboy billionaire owner of Shizzle, Inc takes Isa under his wing. Isa even gets a number of new love interests, but all is not what it seems. In fact, absolutely nothing is what it seems.

Can Isa survive the tough world of corporate intrigue and constant looming bodily harm? Or will her efforts be the end of Shizzle, Inc and possibly her life?

My Review:

I give Shizzle, Inc 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Ever since I read Confessions of a Shopaholic for the first time over seven years ago, I’ve been looking for the next Rebecca Bloomwood, not because I’m anyone of import to discover the next Rebecca Bloomwood or anything, but because Shopaholic was the first “chick lit” I ever read and enjoyed. When I heard about Shizzle, Inc I just had a feeling about Isa Maxwell.

From the outset, Isa cracked me up. With an ego the size of the state of Texas, her one ambition is to be discovered. She lands a job with the seventh richest man in the southeastern United States, with the intention of riding his coattails to fame. Along the way, she’s convinced she earns his undying love, picks up a stalker, and starts getting a vibe from her best friend. She’s terribly out-of-touch, but endearing in her own way. At times she was uncharacteristically self-aware (she would talk almost sarcastically about herself, the way one might talk about someone they don’t like), and that pulled me out of the story from time to time.

Shizzle, Inc is larger than life, off-beat, and funny. It was written in such a way that I also suspect amidst the humor there was a subtle social comment on the United States, but I’m not going to analyze that, because obviously the whole world is in love with us. 😉

It’s a fun weekend read, and I can’t wait for book two.
