Kurzbeschreibung

A novel about the adventures and regrets of a Texas Oil Princess’s quest for finding love…

Melanie St. John is a beautiful, smart, rich Texan daddy’s girl born to a bold, high-powered lawyer in the oil business who helps Melanie grow into someone who is both worldly and capable. But once she leaves college and enters the privileged world of dating highly sought-after “men of leisure,” she is catapulted in and out of the wealthiest places on the globe while hoping to get married and start a family with one of them. But these mostly destructive love affairs soon become a dynamic exploration of wealth and love, with all the highs and lows. And to complicate matters she is surrounded by her older, free-wheeling, wildcat sister (and her sister’s exotic but destructive best friend) as well as her own two completely opposite best friends, and each of them also hopes to find their own Prince Charming—which all only adds to the competition, adventures, and scandals. But throughout each relationship Melanie explores the deeper, more prevalent themes of family, friendship, love, intimacy, freedom, betrayal, motherhood, and most of all, inner strength.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Leighton Summers is a sixth generation Texan who has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe her whole life. During her travels she was always surrounded by interesting, successful (and often eccentric) people who encouraged her to find her passion and live life to the fullest. Writing novels always intrigued her, and so one day while in New York City she took out her laptop in a café and decided to jot down some notes about how a female character created from her own world could "love smarter." Over the next four years the notes turned into both funny and sad adventures of a woman's quest for finding friendship, love, self, and family and she weaved them all together into this, her debut novel. Leighton hopes you enjoy reading it... visit StupidByChoice.net.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Light At The End of the Tunnel for the Stuck on Stupid 30. Juni 2013
Von C'est LV - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Stupid by Choice is a self-deprecating portrait of dysfunction in the upper echelons of society. The book follows Melanie, a thirty-something Texas debutante who has all the trappings of success in New York through her personal "aha" moment. The story opens with her inviting movers into her home to relocate her from a bad marriage as stealthily as they can. As the three apply their muscle to packing up her belongings, Melanie unpacks the baggage of all that has transpired to get her to that place.

The story is all at once funny, dramatic, sad and everything in between as we relive Melanie's life from Texas, Monte Carlo, Manhattan, Newport, and Palm Beach, where she faces destructive love affairs, financial trouble, family issues, unplanned pregnancy, and more of the same with her sister and her friends. Her father, Oldie, is a figure who could be compared to the Rock Hudson character in the classic movie, Giant, and her mother the Elizabeth Taylor character. Her parents raise her as they were before her, as spoiled children of entitlement who have to learn to separate reality from the trappings of privilege to which they have grown accustomed. Melanie suffers a lot of the same trials and tribulations as women of lesser means, despite having been born with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth.

With a surprising and unprecedented opportunity to have lasting love with the most unlikely person, will Melanie squander it on principal or will she experience the epiphany she needs to free herself from being "stuck on stupid," or will she remain "stupid by choice?" Find out for yourself. Make Stupid by Choice one of your summer reads.

I give Stupid by Choice 3.5 Stars.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lesson Learned! 3.5 stars 7. Juni 2013
Von Ezinwanyi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a 3.5 star read for this debut.
It featured a 30-something year old Melanie St. John, who decided to divorce her abusive, vindictive husband after enduring years of emotional abuse. She took her 2 year old daughter Blakely and went back home to Texas to start over.

As Melanie began her journey as a single mom, she had to reflect and understand her many choices as a young and naïve girl that "let" things happen to her as opposed to taking charge of her own life. She decided to provide a more stable environment for daughter and be a better role model.

Unfortunately, she was still embroilled in a soap opera-ish community and lifestyle. It was like a combination of Dallas & One Life to Live. Nothing like angry, rich oil tycoons making sure some woman doesn't ruin their family name and take their money. But Melanie learned how to stand on her own two feet and fight, so there was good growth by the end of the book. It also made title make sense to me, that sometimes we choose to be stupid, or blind in our relationship. So I am glad Melanie decided that she will no longer be stupid by choice.

My few issues with the book: It needs more editting. Also, the characters lacked real emotional depth. This book almost seemed like I should be laughing more (a satire) at the way these hoity toity socialites were living. The writing was easy to follow and I read it in one sitting. So it was entertaining, though a little shallow in the romance department.

I would recommend this book to romance lovers who want something light and fun to read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great read about choices and consequences 21. Juni 2013
Von Tee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Stupid By Choice was a little different read for me considering I read mostly YA and Erotica books. I do love all genres but lately I have fallen into a trap where I have been in the NA reading and loving it. So when I ventured off and read this book I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I have to say the descriptions of the south love it! I am a fan of down south. They have such a way of living that is different from the fast lane living I am used to. I would go every summer and I loved it so much. I am seriously thinking about moving down there with my kids.

Stupid By Choice is about a spoiled rich girl living the life she was born into. Melanie has it all, she has riches and everything handed to her. She is traveling and partying and looking for a husband. Only what she gets and what happens is not something she was prepared for. She gets her husband and family but at a cost because her husband is a total tool and douche bag and she endures a lot of abuse.

She decides she has had enough and she decides to leave her husband and take her family and start over. It is here that her starting over and moving on is the crux of the story and what a story she tells. I had to laugh a few times because rich people really do some stupid things and say stupid things. Money does not buy you brains and Melanie definitely found that out the hard way.

This book is a great read so if you are looking for a beach read or an afternoon read this is the book for you! Happy Reading!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good beach read Will keep you entertained 1. Juli 2014
Von Reading Renee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. Most of the time I like a long book. I have been reading too many below 200 pages and novella so thankful this was a feature length book. I have to say this was my cup of tea! Back in the day I would walk into the book store and go to my genre of choice and actually choose the longest book. Nothing was worse than being on the good old F train going into Manhattan with nothing to read. Sadly you have to look at the people on the train with you, not good! Anyways This book had a lot of great elements. Melanie St. John was a Texas Oil Attorney's daughter. Most of the story she struggles with wealth and whether she wants it or hates it. Her and her parents and sister have a lot of emotional turmoil in their lives. The books shows a side of Texas that isn't usually shown. The oil business is as big as their hats! Oldie is the typical wealthy attorney who loves with his heart and his wallet.

Melanie thinks she is getting away with a secret and her boyfriend David. I know this is a mini spoiler but....Oldie confronts her and wahooo does he have the goods on his little virgin daughter. It broke my heart and this is where I loved to hate Oldie. He was genuine in his care and concern for Melanie but it tore my heart out. She loved David. Yes there wouldn't be a book if she chose David. I know that, but the characters were really real to me and spoke to me. I grieve the loss of David!

As Melanie decided to go to UT and with her sister and her friend Eva they start college life. Eva was the daughter of Helmut. OH my did that man scare me! I really liked the dark side of her. Her life, chances, and the experiences she was famous for were priceless, scary and tragic. When the family goes to Europe and discovers what a colossal mess Eva and Whitney have gotten into.

Melanie watches Whitney have fun and never let college consume her. She seemed to consume, champagne and men. I liked all of her. She was not superficial, she knew what she wanted and was a semi alpha girl. I guess I appreciated her vision. I enjoyed all the fearsome foursome and their antics. All the college and angst of growing up were were played out well. I liked how descriptive she was with the areas. Whether in Texas, New York, Paris or Italy the author was descriptive with the areas letting you visualize it.

Melanie was a wonderful and rich character and so was the book. This is a great weekend at the beach book.

4 .5 stars

This was my Barc James Spader from Pretty in Pink, oldie (HA HA) but a goodie
