Rosanna's future is carefully mapped out, and she is leaving nothing to chance. Before she begins her economics degree, she will spend the summer as an intern in the Takeovers & Acquisitions team at the London branch of global investment bank Kruger Partners. When she notices on her first day that her fellow interns Deborah and Amelia boast similarly voluptuous physical assets, she dismisses this as a coincidence. But her faith in the morality of the business world rapidly turns to vehement disapproval as she realizes that there is a pattern to Kruger Partners' recruitment policy, which has less to do with A-level results than with cup size. Plunged into a world of institutionalized pornographic sexism, Rosanna is determined to blow the whistle, regardless of the consequences to her career in banking, and indeed to the future of the banking industry as a whole. However, she soon comes into conflict with Deborah, who is determined to play the system, and has revolutionary ideas of her own....
Fantastic audiobook. It's every bit as fun and raunchy as everyone would expect from one ol Lesley finch's works, but the narrator's voice makes it even more appealing. A very original story giving a twist to the age old work dynamics between men and women, Lesley's style. All in all, a great purchase indeed.

Once again I had read and loved the text version of this book before downloading the audio version and, once again, it is even better as an audio book.
The reading, in a lovely feminine voice such as Posey Clifford's, brings a whole new dimension to the story and allows you to immerse yourself so much further into it and enjoy it the better...
The story centres around four new interns at the global investment bank, Kruger Partners, which has, shall we say, some rather unusual recruitment and business practices...
Three are monumentally (and I do not use that word lightly) stacked 19 year old young women. There is the shy Amelia, the wannabe feminist icon, Rosanna, and the sexual dynamo, Deborah. Then there's perhaps the luckiest guy alive, Daniel... :-)
They are all looking for something very different from their time at Kruger Partners, and some have more success with their aims than others, but no spoilers!
OK, just one... Daniel will have a whale of a time, but even he doesn't get to have it all his own way in a company that is populated by more busty sex goddesses than you'd find at a porn studio!
Posey Clifford brings this already magnificent tale to even greater life with her very obvious enthusiasm for the production and her wonderful ability with different accents. I very much hope she chooses to work with Lesley Finch again in the future.
And I fell in love with so many of the characters in this book - and not just the aforementioned interns - that I really hope Lesley decides to write a sequel, or some form of spin-off so that we can discover more of their adventures...
I am a long time reader of Lesley Finch's written works and was kindly given a free copy of the audiobook to review, but that has made absolutely no difference to my opinion or my review.
I loved it!!!
