I can’t tell how surprised I am with The Green Ticket by Samantha March. It wasn’t what I expected. I was surprised that I really enjoy the book.
Alex, a college junior was thrilled when she got her dream job at ‘Blissful’ to manage a successful salon and spa. What she didn’t expect was that her dream job can turn into a nightmare. Sure, her boss, Dani can be really sweet. But working under her husband, Kevin Dohlman, can be a nightmare! Alex had to deal with Kevin’s affairs and his attitude.
I love The Green Ticket. The character, Alex was sounded so real! I love watching Alex and her friends grew up throughout the story. Alex had her fears and doubt. I adore how the way Alex dealt with her problem and dilemma was realistic and believable. I was most surprised with what happened between Alex and her boss toward the end of the story. It was unexpected.
The Green Ticket wasn’t really a love story although there is a subtle touch of romance. The Green Ticket was more of a story of how a college girl survived her life balancing her life between her studies, works, friends, family and her love life. It mostly tackled the subject of ethics where Alex had to choose between her principle and money. Reading The Green Ticket was very absorbing. Once I picked it up, it was hard to put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen to Alex with her work and how her life will turn out. I can’t help but wanting to know what will Alex do in her situation. I would definitely recommend this book.
