SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE • From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella, a novel with the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism as her beloved Shopaholic series.
Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:
Secrets from her boyfriend: I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
Secrets from her mother: I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world: 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. Or could they?

This is not a complicated book, but I found myself really liking the characters and rooting for the heroine. It was somewhat predictable, but very likeable. A fun read!
Great Job Sophie!
This is the most amazing book i have ever read in my entire existence! Sophie really captures your attention and makes you fall in love with ALL of the characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fictional romance stories. In fact, i recommend this book to EVERYONE! Hope you have a wonderful time reading this book, just like I did. It doesn't matter how old you are to read this book, I am only thrirteen and i absolutely loved this book! By the way, the abridged version is a total rip off, buy the unabridged version if you want the full pleasurable feeling that I felt when I heard this book. Once again Sophie has delivered a wonderful story that will be loved throughout America! (Pause for effect)
