Katie is at a low moment in her life. Her fiance has left her for her best friend and she has had to move out of their apartment. And when she meets Cassidy she doesn't know why she is so attracted to this self-confident woman who dresses like a man. On the other hand, Cassidy has never committed to just one woman - she cheats, she has one-night stands, and has never had a relationship that lasted more than a few weeks. So why can't she stop thinking about Katie? After all, she is not her type. But the more time Katie and Cassidy spend together, the more they can't deny their attraction to each other.
It’s a story about friendship, love, and rediscovering yourself with characters who are likable but not completely engaging. I liked this novel but not as much as the author’s first novel The Assistant. (NP)
Tina Fontana, 30, is the assistant for media tycoon Robert Barlow. She works hard but for the past six years her job has been to follow her boss’ often extravagant orders, such as buying an $80,000 fish for his aquarium and taking lunch orders for all the men in the office even though her “college degree never covered this sort of material; there was no ‘Introduction to Remembering Breads, Toppings, and Condiments 101’ at NYU”. Tina always played by the rules until one day she receives a company cheque by mistake, a cheque that will allow her to pay off her student loan. And she takes it. As guilt keeps her awake at night, another assistant discovers her secret and wants her help in paying off her own university debt. Every time Tina tries to stop stealing from her boss, other assistants ask for her help and she suddenly find herself in the role of a modern Robin Hood. Tina Fontana is my new heroine as she and her band of underpaid assistants deceive the most powerful men in the world. A witty, riveting and insightful debut, I was hooked from the first page. (NP)
