Publisher's Summary

With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international best sellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets.Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur. Sammy the goldfish in my parents' kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.
Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks. I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.
Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me. I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.
Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.
But come Monday morning, Emma's office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company's elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn't possibly get worse. Until they do.

Liked this book a lot

The book had a lot of silly, funny things, but there was an undercurrent that kept it from being just fluff. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorites. I am not a fan of abridged books, but I wanted to listen to the story narrated by Emily Gray - she is perfect for Sophie Kinsella books. The Shopaholic books were wonderful at the beginning of the series when they were narrated by Emily Gray - amazing. Later in the series the second narrator was OK, but at the end of the series the narrator was not OK at all. The reader can make a book come alive - or kill the book. When I read reviews that complain about the narrator, I download the book on Kindle instead of suffering through a bad read. This book was just right.

Couldn't Stop Listening

This book was the most entertaining book I've downloaded since The Devil Wears Prada. I found tasks to do at work that wouldn't require a lot of brain power just so I could keep listening. I went to dinner with my husband and gave him my pda so he could play Jawbreaker and I wouldn't feel guilty for listening to the book while waiting for dinner. It's a very lighthearted romp and was easy to get drawn into the story and the characters. I could have done without the f* word, but otherwise I loved it.
