Some lucky women meet the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. Some lucky women focus on a career and make their own happily ever after. And then some women wake up after fifteen years of marriage and discover that their luck just ran out … right into the arms of another woman.
Jana Embers isn’t one to sit back, though. The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she’s thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s truck. After that, she’s not sure what she’ll do … Maybe she’ll adopt a cat.
After her divorce and a few too many crummy dates, Jana decides she doesn’t need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don’t Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.
Three years later, Jana has a New York Times bestseller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can’t write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks …

Inspiring, Empowering, funny
I love the way she takes control of her life after divorce. The best type of revenge. A wonderful strong female character, I enjoyed this book immensely .
Some lucky women
When I started reading this book I thought it would be meeting her physio straight after a chapter but it was different but when she was trying to figure her life out it made me realise that I should do what she is doing. Even though I’ve never been married I always feel lonely but this book made me realise that I need to love myself and I want people to know and like the real me and if they don’t than it’s their problem. This book made me realise that no women should Seattle for less than what they deserve. I would like to thank the author for writing this book because it encourages people to choose their path and that no matter what there is always a way to get through your life problems.
This book thought me that honesty is the key to everything so we should always be honest with ourself and stop worrying about what someone thought of them.
I would personally recommend this book to everyone who enjoys to play the part of an independent women and want to achieve something in life but they are scared of going for it.
