Publisher's Summary

When 27-year-old Bette Robinson quits her Manhattan banking job, she knows she won't miss the 80-hour workweeks, her claustrophobic cubicle or her revolting boss's Quotes of the Day.
Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen.
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. 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. 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.

Not the best

While I enjoyed the performance, it wasn't my favourite as I found Bette spineless and wishy-washy. I got that she was caught in between, but about half way through, her whole "I'm sorry, I have no choice, it's my job" routine was getting old. I felt compelled to yell "own your choices girl!" at my iPhone. To be fair, this feeling is undoubtedly exacerbated by the fact that this is my fourth consecutive Weisberger read, and this is a definite common trait with her heroines. Even so, I found Bette just a little bit worse than the others, so many aspects of her life were a farce.
That aside, the performance was great and the story isn't bad, my main issue is just that I couldn't identify with the main character.
