The synopsis:

Waxed is the story of three relationship-challenged sisters working together at New York’s hottest waxing salon, catering to socialites, actresses, and regular folk alike.
Yank. On the surface, glamorous Carolina Impresario---big sister and owner of Impresarios---unapologetically wants it all, but secretly she is caught between her successful boyfriend and the only man she has ever truly loved.
Pluck. After a painful divorce, middle sister Anna reluctantly reenters the workforce and puts on a brave face while attempting to raise her children, one of whom is decidedly different.
Tear. Newlywed Sofia is a hybrid of her two older sisters: She loves the idea of a domestic life like Anna’s, but is entranced by New York nightlife and a new best friend, resulting in some major complications at home.
Amid the sticky confines of a perfectly manicured world, these three sisters search for love, friendship, and better versions of themselves.
Waxed is a funny and heartfelt novel that illustrates the lengths to which some women will go to present a seemingly flawless exterior, even when it involves pain. . . .

My thoughts: I really did not love this book. I wanted to, but as soon as one of the characters came into the book and the overshare about his appendages made me cringe, I immediately guessed where he fell in the plot line for one of the sisters. None of the main characters were likable, and ultimately I just couldn't dive into the book like I wanted to. It was an enjoyable read in some parts. Rave showed a vulnerable Carolina to perfection, for about the fifteen minutes that she allowed her vulnerability.

Oh, darn. I'm sorry this one didn't work for you. Thank you, though, for being on the tour. We really appreciate it.

I totally agree with you that I wish Carolina had a few more cracks in her frigidity. I thought the book was ok, but I had been expecting to enjoy it more. And I second the oversharing! I'm going to track down Rave's SPiN debut about the PR world as I think that's more my scene.
