From the number one best-selling author who brought you Gucci Gucci Co, Neurotica and A Catered Affair comes a hilarious new novel about falling in love, hating your job, and getting what you want out of life - without ever smudging your lipstick!
When it comes to men, beauty columnist Rebecca Fine always seems to be on the scruffy end of the mascara wand. But all that changes the morning she meets Max Stoddart, her new colleague at the Daily Vanguard. With his upscale suit, Hugh Grant hair, and obscenely sexy good looks, he’s a single woman’s dream come true. Finally, her grandmother can stop surfing the Net for eligible Jewish males. But is Max the catch of the decade - or just a major babe magnet?
Meanwhile, Rebecca’s old high school nemesis has resurfaced, a former blond bombshell called Lipstick who is now engaged to Rebecca’s widowed dad. And it's good-bye to articles on toe cleavage when a hot tip sweeps Rebecca to the centre of the Paris cosmetics world, where a miracle anti-wrinkle cream is about to be launched. That is, until she blows the whistle on a scandal that could set the beauty business - and the future of world peace - reeling.
Will Rebecca win the recognition - not to mention the Pulitzer - she yearns for ... and get the man of her dreams? Stay tuned.
The story is less than average. I gave it 2 stars because maybe somehow somewhere it becomes interesting enough to listen. But what is really terrible is the narrator. The tone is flat. The voice is disagreeable! It makes it impossible to fallow the thread of the plot.
I could not finish the book, I did try like 3 times but I just could not.
So I am very sorry to say but it was an overall 0 star.

Once I started the book I didn't want it to end. A story well written.
This book is in the same category as Gucci Gucci Coo written and read by the author
could not listen to it.
Any additional comments?
The writing is very funny, but the plot didn't hold my attention. I've tried listening to this over and over for months, and I end up daydreaming, then eventually turn it off. I finally just gave up and am looking for a new book.
