Take It Off: an Insiders novel

by J. Minter

Basically, this series is like Gossip Girl with more focus on the boy characters — filthy rich, gorgeous Manhattan prep school boys. Mindless, yet irresistible. Decadent, and unsatisfying.

Kind of poorly written, too. In this installment, one of the characters gets stuck in Barcelona and has trouble communicating because he doesn't know a word of Spanish. He does, however, know some Portuguese and French, so he really shouldn't be completely unable to communicate, the way it's portrayed in the book. Fortunately, the books are such fluffy, quick reads that these sort of research and editing (and basic knowledge) failures are easily overlooked.

See my earlier review of Hold on Tight.
