Sometimes, there’s nowhere to go but f*ck up…

If you love Broad City and Bridget Jones, you’ll adore Dagmar Kostopoulos…and her colossal fuck-ups.

Twenty-something Dag has always been the ‘perfect’ woman. Responsible, honest to a fault, hard-working. Even her bras are no-nonsense. And for what? Her boyfriend dumps her for being boring, and her boss fires her for not sucking on his nether regions to get promoted. What’s a perfectionist overachiever to do? A complete one-eighty.

To heck with rules—Dag orchestrates a spectacular fall from grace by ruining her life exactly six-hundred-sixty-six times, and finally has a little naughty fun. Some scandalous Spandex and a few bar lies later, tame little Dagmar becomes Giselle, ballsy siren.

The wild thing is…it works! Dag gets a better job and meets the sexiest man she’s ever known. Well, Giselle meets him. Dagmar doesn’t exist. Except that she does, and her escapades just became a ticking time bomb, one that might blow her heart to smithereens.

Join Dag for her irresistible and hilarious fuck-ups, because every good girl needs to inject a little bad girl sizzle into her veins.

My Review

4.5 stars easily!! (.5 off because I wanted more from the ending)

I have found a new go-to author to add to my collection for some good romantic comedy and her name is Lucy Woodhull! She completely nailed this story and I loved it!

Dag is in her 20s and has spent her whole life trying to please everyone but herself. That is until her boss fires her for not sleeping with him to get that promotion. Then her cheating boyfriend dumps her and tells her she's boring and no one else will want or love her. Btw, their break up scene was freaking hilarious!! To top it all off, her father and her fraternal twin sister treat her like a leper simply because she was born looking 'ethnic'.

So what's a girl to do? Dag decides to say 'f*ck it' to her old ways and embraces the life of a f*ck up. With the help of her bff Mel, she creates a blog to document the 666 ways she can fail at life. And we, the readers, are along for the ride.

I cannot say enough how much I loved this book. I enjoyed watching the snowball effect of Dag's lies and misrepresentations and how incredibly creative she and Mel got with them. Her love interest is a sexy Brit named Yash, a successful novelist, and even he was a lot of fun to read about. However, he is being misled and only knows Dag as 'Giselle', and her house of cards is about to tumble from the weight of the lies she has told him.

Fave Quotes:

"Now was the moment for me to do the right thing and leave. Now. Now that his butt was facing me in a very confrontational manner."

"He kissed like a demon and held me like a dream"

"I wanted to love as me. I wanted to be loved for me."

"I got asked on dates every day of the week, but I turned them all down. Mel, however, was drowning in more dick than a male prison. Her words."


Gah, I don't want to give any more away. There are a lot of laughs to be found in this book and also a moral to the story. Be real. Be true. Love thyself.
