"Three very different Latina women vow to bring Los Angeles to its collective knees in this funny, guilty pleasure of a novel . . . [A] heartfelt piece of escapism." --Publishers Weekly

"Playing with Boys is a testament to the powers of women wrapped up in a pretty Cinderella story times three." --Albuquerque Journal

"A beach read that . . . might make you giggle and blush." --Chicago Sun-Times

"As Marcella, Alexis, and Olivia grapple with men and their careers, they really don't seem all that different from Bridget Jones herself." --Miami Herald

"The three amigas--a television actress, a single mother, and a manager of musicians--each has her own distinct lifestyle, quirks, and notions of romance, yet each manages to help her friends find balance, along with loads of good times." --Sacramento Bee

"If you're looking for a great beach listen, The Dirty Girls Social Club is just what the audio doctor ordered." --Bookpage

"The personalities are sparkling fresh...Valdes-Rodriguez offers a spirited reading...highly recommended." --Kliatt

"[Valdes-Rodriguez] speaks in the accent and personality of each character and is completely convincing. [She] is not only someone to watch, but someone to hear." --Memphis Commercial Appeal
