& Taylor

Realizing that her prestigious investment banking job is making her miserable, Bette Robinson impulsively quits and accepts an opportunity with a successful PR firm, a job that tests the boundary between her personal and professional lives.

Simon and Schuster
An irresistible tale about what happens when a girl on the fringe enters the realm of New York's chic, party-hopping elite.On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At twenty-six, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her eighty-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls -- but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she not only shocks her friends and family -- she has no idea what to do next.For months, Bette gets out and about by walking her four-pound dog around her decidedly unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood. Then she meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly Bette 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. Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. 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. Still, 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.

Think this author needs to get over herself already. Did not like this book & do not recommend it. The main character needed to be a lot nicer, it might have had a chance at being more enjoyable to read if she was. She should also definitely change the back to have reviews of the book (unless maybe the reason there are no reviews in sight anywhere on or in the book is because it sucks?! lol) rather than some big dumb picture of herself on the back. There is a smaller & perfect amount of space on the inside back of the cover, the picture should be much smaller & be there instead.

I was intrigued by the summary of the story, you know, with celebrities, parties and whatnot. I thought it was going to be an interesting and fun book to read, but I was wrong. I like exciting books and this wasn't it. The final 2 chapters were the most boring of them all.

Light-hearted and cute. Liked it better than the Devil wears Prada, cause in that book her boss was so mean, I wouldn't have stayed in that job a day, and thought the heroine was wimpy. In this book, the heroine came close to being non-sympathetic. This could be because I'm 60 years old and know the value of lasting friendships over a night on the town.

didn't like this book very much.

i thought that "chasing harry winston" was okay... and that this might make for a good read while i was on holiday... but it was so full of cheesy cliches and it wasn't very well written, so i didn't really enjoy it. i wouldn't recommend it.

Liked the descriptions of the star-struck club life... something like an access hollywood backstage pass. Otherwise, the book was just o.k.
