Tina Fontana is the hapless but brazen 30-year-old executive assistant to Robert Barlow, the all-powerful and commanding CEO of Titan Corp., a multinational media conglomerate. She's excellent at her job and beloved by her famous boss - but after six years of making his reservations for restaurants she'd never get into on her own and pouring his drinks from bottles that cost more than her rent, she's bored, broke, and just a bit over it all.
When a technical error with Robert's travel-and-expenses report presents Tina with the opportunity to pay off the entire balance of her student loan debt with what would essentially be pocket change for her boss, she struggles with the decision: She's always played by the rules. But it's such a relatively small amount of money for the Titan Corporation - and for her it would be a life changer….
The Assistants speaks directly to a new generation of women who feel stuck and unable to get ahead playing by the rules. It will appeal to all of those who have ever asked themselves, "How is it that after all these years, we are still assistants?"

A light and fun read
Would you try another book from Camille Perri and/or Jorjeana Marie?
Would you recommend The Assistants to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes as a beach read - it's entertaining.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
I didn't like the narrator much until the last half of the book. Somehow, she grew on me.
Any additional comments?
This was a light and entertaining book with a predictably happy ending, but the path to that ending was well paced, and well seeded with setbacks and consequences. Imagine the book Devil Wears Prada but now set in the financial district of New York. Fun. Good vacation read.

This is a cute book, but nothing more. The characters are one-dimensional with shallow relationships, and the plot is often predictable. Plus, the narrator's voice is childish and rather whiny.
