CLUTCH Review + Book & Handbag Giveaway

I'm so excited to be telling you all about a new book I was given the opportunity to read and review. The book is called Clutch and it is by the super sweet and talented Lisa Becker. This book is totally for those of you who are into things like Sex & The City. If you are, you'll really want to check this novel out.

Clutch is the laugh-out-loud, chick lit romance chronicling the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer who compares her unsuccessful romantic relationships to styles of handbags.

The “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad, the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc. 

With her best friend, bar owner Mike by her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks a lot of Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line, endures her share of unworthy suitors and finds the courage to discover the “Clutch” or someone she wants to hold onto.

Caroline's aunt Mimi pushes her to achieve her dream of becoming a handbag designer. But to do that, she must learn the business world first and so she sets out to Harvard Business School to do just that. There she meets her future best friend Mike and they connect right away regardless of their differences.
After graduation, they both decide to leave for Los Angeles and pursue their dreams. mike wants to open his own bar and Caroline wants to design handbags. This is where her many dating adventures begin. While Caroline is trying to find the "Mr. Right", Mike, on the other hand, is trying to find "Ms. Right Now".
Of course, I can't ruin what happens in the end, but I can tell you that I really loved reading this. It kept my attention and was so interesting. I loved how Caroline compared all the men in her life to the one thing she knew most about...Handbags! That was so cute and clever. As a lover of handbags and romance, it had me interested and on my toes the entire time. I could totally catch myself now comparing different types of people to the different handbags out there.

I would say this book is a great novel for those in their early twenties on up. And for anyone who loves cute, girly type of books. I found both Caroline and Mike to be hilarious and so relatable.
