Post-Traumatic Brazilian Wax Syndrome by Tamara Lyon Review

About The Book:
Post-Traumatic Brazilian Wax Syndrome 
By: Tamara Lyon
Pages: 348 
Published: May 29, 2015

Bristow Sparks, an interior designer in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, has just landed the contract of a lifetime, working for the Cherry Wyeland, volatile reality star and CEO of Wine-A- Lot. Designing for a crazy person is an around-the-clock commitment. It frays Bristow’s nerves and forces her to compromise in unimaginable ways, but, given that the finished product will be featured on The Decorating Network, she must succeed.
While her professional life is hot, her personal life is barely room temperature. After surviving the relentless media spotlight because of a personal tragedy and a traitorous ex- boyfriend, Bristow flies so far under the radar she can’t even be detected. A homebody to the core, she binges on episodes of the Showtime series, Dexter, lives in sweatpants, and is addicted to exercise and Oreos.
As for relationships? She has fallen hard and fast for witty and adventurous Jack Hoffmann. However, after their disastrous first date where Bristow collides with a park bench among other mortifying mishaps, they are unfortunately just friends. At least there’s one male sharing her bed, even if it’s only Vegas, her theatrical golden retriever.
For her twenty-ninth birthday, Bristow goes out of her comfort zone and gets a makeover at an elite spa. Post-Brazilian wax and in excruciating pain, Bristow realizes that she’s been in a post-traumatic state for years. She vows to start taking risks again. When she finally goes after what and whom she wants, no matter the cost, tragedy strikes again . . .

How do I write this review? I laughed OUT LOUD and I had my heart tugged and smashed and squeezed! 
There was blood and guts! Characters that I will remember forever. And tears! 
I will add a tissue alert.

This is in fact the perfect vacation or beach read. 
Perfect for both genders and all ages! Well, maybe high school and above. 
I have recommended it to all of my friends. I can't wait to share it with more people. 
Drama, adventure, comedy - a dog to live for! I can not praise it highly enough.

Not even a quarter of the way in I sent a thank you not to the friend who recommended it to me. 
I was laughing so hard!
I fell for the main character and her Gigi. I agonized with her on those disasterous dates! 
There were times I wanted to reach into my ereader and slap certain characters. I stayed up late to keep reading it!

I do not want to give away any spoilers but will say you will NOT be disappointed unless you put off reading this hilarious novel.

I did receive a free copy of the book to enjoy and review.

About The Author:

Post-Traumatic Brazilian Wax Syndrome is loosely inspired by an unfortunate, painful event that occurred three years ago and is critically acclaimed author Tamara Lyon’s sixth novel. Her previous works include The Ugly Tree series, a Flamingnet Top Choice Award winner, 2011 Next Generation Indie Finalist, Eric Hoffer Finalist, and Midwest Book Award Finalist. In 2010 her novel, Fixing Forever Broken, earned an IPPY Award for romance. Lyon has taken her recent books in a decidedly chick-lit direction and creates characters and stories that are refreshingly and humorously real. She makes her home in Wisconsin with her talented husband, cycling-superstar son, and counter-surfing golden retriever, Macy.
