The third book, I had to read, because I had to know what happened next. Light, fun, chick-lit.

The third book, I had to read, because I had to know what happened next. I was 23 when I read it, so (22 when I read the 2nd one and 21 when I read the first book), so in my young 20's, I totally related to these books.

Charlie, because he's so caring swore that the mole was getting larger, and so Lewis, who's had the mole for oh, his entire life, said it really hadn't changed, but because he loves Charlie, and because Charlie was uberly fretful about it, Lewis agreed to have said mole removed.

If you haven’t already heard, Vivian Livingston has become a permanent fixture under the bright lights of NYC, and she’s come a long way. It feels like only yesterday that Vivian boarded a bus for Manhattan and never—okay, rarely—looked back!She’s been a rule-breaker and the reluctant star of a Web site that bears her name, www.Vivianlives.com. She’s penned two bare-all novels, laid down a trio of turbulent tracks, and when the going got tough, she nearly let herself get swept away. Nearly. But through it all, with contagious and self-taught abandon, Vivian has maintained her mighty little mantra: “It is better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.”Rounding out her twenties with a completed professional and personal “to-do” list and finally on her own, sans a man and the good and the bad of past relationships, it’s with a mixture of careful calculation and sizzling spontaneity that Vivian embraces her adulthood with full force. Her next move? Well, that’s anyone’s guess. What does she really want? Who does she really want? And what is “success,” really?Alright, ladies: Start your engine, ’cause the debauchery is about to begin! What follows achievement and satisfied self-discovery? Well, according to Vivian, trouble, the good kind, and pure, unadulterated fun!

Sigh. I've now read all three of the Vivian books, and sadly, it's been downhill all the way. "The Autobiography Of Vivian" introduced a loveable chick lit heroine, whose story was a fun bit of rather unrealistic fluff with a major flaw - Vivian's barely mentioned dark past with an abusive boyfriend. Not that I object to heavier storylines (you can't live on chick lit alone), but the Viv we met in this book was way too well adjusted for this bit of plot to be believeable, and it just felt like these particular details were tacked on during a later draft, maybe to generate some sympathy for the girl who got everything handed to her on a silver platter.
The sequel was a much darker story, with Vivian's personality doing a 180 degree turn. The once happy go lucky city chick still had everything going for her, but instead of rejoicing, she was now spending her time brooding and sabotaging her relationship with her perfect boyfriend - all because of the painful history that was only glossed over in her first book. While Viv's new attitude was perhaps more befitting an abuse victim, it didn't mesh with the wacky chick lit romp that was her first book. I'm all for authors trying out different genres, but not within the same series. Our heroine just became a completely different person in the second book, and I found that hard to swallow.
So here we are a third time. Just like in the first book, good fortune falls into Vivian's lap every time she turns around, but this time it's even more over the top. Without lifting a finger, she's landed a book deal, a TV deal, a recording deal, and to top it off, a big time Hollywood director she's never met has somehow noticed her and wants her to audition for the leading role in a movie. Yeah, okay. But despite the fame and fortune that has somehow found her, Viv is bummed. Having driven away her boyfriend Jack by rejecting his marriage proposal, she has made an astonishing discovery: she MISSES him! Oh, boo hoo! And she spends the entire book moping over him, while all around her, her many devoted friends and admirers seem to slave 24/7 towards making her happy, famous, and wealthy. Honestly, that about sums up Book Three. (Picture me grabbing Vivian by the shoulders here and screaming into her face, "stop whining already!")
I loved Vivian in the first book. I was disappointed in her in the second. This time, I really didn't like her. I don't know whether a fourth book is planned, but if so, it will go on without me.

As soon as you open this book, you will see that Vivian has mastered the art of story-telling, as well as drawing her readers into her multi-faceted and fascinating life. This is not your ordinary chick lit book; Vivian welcomes you into her life and invites you to see all sides of her, including the bad ones. As in her previous two books, "Vivian, The V Spot" is detailed yet fun, sad yet uplifting, touching, and hard to put down. (For me, impossible).
In this novel, she continues her life story, starting from when she had completed her first manuscript (for her first book) and is about to drop it off at her agent's office. (I recommend new readers of the Vivian books start with her first one - "Autobiography of Vivian" or they might be confused). A lot of things are happening in Vivian's life: her best friend is about to get engaged to a guy that doesn't seem to like Vivian; her next book is due in six months; she misses Jack terribly, although she finds out he has moved on (to a slimmer, prettier model); she finds out her book might be optioned into a television show; and much more. Through it all, Vivian keeps up her witty, honest, best-girlfriend type of tone with the reader.
I found "Vivian, The V Spot" absolutely impossible to put down because I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. People who have followed her website and read her two other books will love this one. The best thing about this book is how wide open Vivian lays her life; she has incredible courage to do it. Although at times it seems her life is too exciting, too perfect, or too full of drama, something else usually happens to destroy the fascade. She is real. And this last book is extremely touching.
The only problems with the book I found was possible inconsistancy with one of her previous books. She swears up and down that she has never slept with a guy on the first date in this third novel, yet I distinctly remember her doing it also in her first book. (Am I wrong?) I also found a glaring typo on one page. However, these things are very small and in no way take away from this great book.
Overall, I highly recommend "Vivian, The V Spot" to all Vivian fans, chick lit readers, and anyone looking for a touching, true-to-life story.

When I found out the third Vivian book was coming out, I stalked my local Barnes awaiting it's release. I was so relieved to find out the book did not disappoint. However, I did find myself very annoyed with the blatant horrible editing job - not just misspelled words, but incorrect events. Hopefully the fourth book will be thoroughly read through before releasing.
