Sarah Smith is a recent college grad with dreams to be a big-time actress. The only problem is she can't find an acting job anywhere. So she decides to accept a job at Zoom Corp and uses her acting position to get an executive position.
Sarah thinks she has hit the big time until she meets CEO Harry Green - the only problem is she doesn't realize he is the CEO and makes a fool of herself. It's not long before she's out of a job and into Harry's bed.
Before long Sarah finds herself falling in love but Harry lets her know in no uncertain terms that he doesn't play for keeps. So Sarah decides to see if she can figure out how to catch a billionaire with the help of her best friend, Jane.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No. I feel like this was an abridged version. It seemed like there were a lot of things missing. One second it is going along great, I was enjoying the banter, then I was wondering 'where did that come from?'...
What would have made this romance irresistible?
If the author had taken a little more time to take us through the story with more details. This isn't a movie, it's a book...
Any additional comments?
This audio version needed to be edited better. There were complete sentences that were repeated. I think maybe something was read, they didn't like how it was read, so it was read differently and they forgot to remove the one they didn't like.
Oh My! I haven't laughed so hard at a book in such a long time... I mean I nearly rolled off the bed, because I was having a giggling convulsion!
Ok... So Sarah is such a one of kind character! From the moment the book started, her conversation with her BFF about how she totally sneaked her way into a high paying executive position... was just LOL! Ok... then once she meets Harry aka BEN, it was just too funny. Sarah is a drama graduate and she totally lies throughout the entire book, but she constantly says "I'm not a liar", but she is so innocent with it...it is just so darn funny...
Ok... now Ben...aka Harry is the CEO who meets this kooky girl who has it good with the CEO of ZOOM Corp, but he is the CEO which Sarah has no idea... and the lies Sarah tells, then...
OMG>.. the funniest part of this book, is when Sarah gets caught up in her lies, and meets Ben (who she created)... Harry in his office, and she pretends to be possessed by a French Aristocrat! There are no words... so funny... like pee yourself funny.
Sarah and Harry's relationship really picks up from there, but Sarah is still so darn kooky... but when Harry does a reversal, and tells Sarah about his ex, and how she died... OMG!
I know right... like death is not supposed to be funny... but OMG! Harry's story was so funny... and Sarah was crying... then WHAM! OMG!!!
And the ending... GREAT!
I have never rated a Helen Cooper book 5-stars... Never... I either don't like her books or they are one-hitters (one time listen/read)...but this .... I have literally listened to it like 5 times and it still doesn't get old... Just so funny... And the smexy time was pretty darn good.. the best I think Cooper has ever written...
So ... yeah I liked the book..a.whole lot...
I really think a narrator will make or break an audio book... and I loved the narrator for this one... The way Bethea did Sarah was absolutely perfect... Sarah's kookiness really shown through..
Great buy, credit or sale.
Just a silly little light read There is a couple of funny parts but not much depth at all.
