And while getting $600 highlights from Cameron's colorist or organizing the strippers for George's birthday party come close to causing heart failure for this East Coast girl, the real dangers lurk elsewhere. But Lizzie is a survivor, and no Machiavellian assistant, lecherous producer, or power struggle at The Agency can douse her nascent dreams of climbing up the Hollywood ladder. But first she has to run down to the Coffee Bean to pick up that triple espresso, or Scott is going to throw something.

"A fast, fun, trashy read." (Publishers Weekly)
"[A] high-spirited sprint." (The New York Times Book Review)
I enjoyed this so much. I didn't want to stop, it was cute, funny and sweet. A great summer read. I would read every book by this author. Also, the Narrator was excellent.
I purchased "The First Assistant" during the $5 sale, but then read that the Second Assistant was even better and should be read first, so I purchased this book. The story was light and entertaining, and gives a glimpse into the world of Hollywood which, if I were a betting woman, I'd say is (sadly) probably pretty accurate. The characters are very entertaining in their own, sad ways . . . story line is believable. If you're looking for something light and enjoyable, I recommend this book.
yes easy fun listening
could happen to any of us
easy fun entertaining listen
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney
I would not know. I have not read the print version. I could have done without the sound effects and musical transitions... sometimes they were louder than the narrator that had not finished speaking. It reminded me of the Emmy's when they are trying to get someone off the stage.
The Devil Wears Prada comes to mind. Not quite as good, but definitely in the same wheel house.
Cute, fun story. Nothing ground breaking, but still entertaining.
This is an entertaining story that felt a little like a Hollywood version of The Devil Wears Prada. Great for girls that want to just kick back and listen on a nice summer day.
This book is cute, fast and has it all, glamour, fun,Hollywood parties and love lost and found.
FANTASTIC reader...Highly recommend for a good beach listen!
I love to listen to my audio books while working or cleaning the house. I listened to this book in a day and my house never looked so clean. It’s a fun book. You will really enjoy it and if you do you have to listen to the 1st assistant. Good narrator and good book.
