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.

Don't know or care. Good story but weak main character who everyone pushes around.
It was okay.
Say something about yourself!
I listened to this book during my daily jogs and it motivated me to keep me going a little further to see what happened next! Good narrator too!
