The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. Soon she's dating an infamous playboy who's great for her career but bad for her sanity, and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. Still, as her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree, until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That's when Bette's life on paper takes on a whole new meaning, and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is invisible.

Great Story... but the narration made me want to jump off a building. I will never, ever listen to an audiobook narrated by this girl again. It was awful. It was like listening to a Middle School Special Ed student reading the book. Her voice was insanely expressionless and annoying (I don't even have the vocabulary to express how much I hate her voice), but that wasn't all. She actually changed the meaning of some phrases by reading them incorrectly (read the phrase "threw away my Dead t-shirts," to sound as though she threw away t-shirts that were no longer living, rather than t-shirts that advertised the band, Grateful Dead), and she was actually unable to read some of the words! One example that stands out in my mind is when she said that a table "compromised" of a group of people, instead of reading the word "comprised." It was like she didn't even read the book before she entered the studio to read it aloud. Horrible. Buy the book and read it yourself... you will enjoy it so much more.

Ok story ... AWESOME narration.
It's Eliza Dushku's reading that makes this book. In another's voice the story and its heroine might have come off naive and implausible. But Eliza's reading is dead-on, making the listener feel like a friend is confiding in them. It's a fun book perfect for listening with a hot tea on a cold winter's day.
