“I’m crazy about Bond Girl. Erin Duffy is a fresh, funny, and fabulous new voice.”
—Adriana Trigiani, author of Brava, Valentine
 
The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street in Bond Girl—a hilarious, fast–paced race through the jungle of high finance in four–inch heels. An author who spent ten years working on Wall Street, Erin Duffy has parlayed her stock market savvy into a fresh, hip, funny, and sexy novel about a bright, young, newly minted B-school graduate’s rise at one of the Street’s most prestigious brokerage firms—only to confront the possible destruction of her dreams in the infamous 2008 financial bust. Bond Girl is a blue chip hoot for anyone who loves smart and fun contemporary woman’s fiction.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi Outland | 2/16/2014

    " Loved this book!! Funny and smart! Our business editor in our paper reviewed it and highly recommended it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 EMP | 2/6/2014

    " 2.5 stars. Quick, easy, entertaining read. I'm pretty sure the author wasn't going for much more than that and my expectations were met. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faith Baine | 1/31/2014

    " This was a decent read. It was written well and had several really funny moments. Alex, the main character was likable and you could relate to her. The book had good flow, especially for a first time writer. I would have rated the book higher if the story went where I wanted it to go. But besides that, it was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenk | 1/28/2014

    " Entertaining and well-written for a lighter read. Although the subject could go deeper, it mainly sticks to the normal mess of personal relationships and self-doubts of all check lit books. This doesn't require brainpower to immensely enjoy it, and the writing quality and likability of the main character sets it above other books of this nature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonya | 1/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It kind of reminded me of The Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/8/2014

    " I really did enjoy this book, so it's probably more of a 3.5. I didn't feel like I ever actually understood what drove Alex, so I think that's my disconnect. It does definitely read like a "Devil Wears Prada" on Wall Street, though that's not necessarily a bad thing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vanessa Pinto | 12/27/2013

    " I appreciated a female graduate trying to get her start on Wall Street aka boys club. It was well written and funny and I really enjoyed it for the most part. I would agree that it shares a similar story to the "devil wears prada" and but the ending was incomplete and empty and could've been better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chanel | 12/26/2013

    " Couldn't put this one down, made me want to reconsider my line of work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/9/2013

    " I got this book as a first read give away. I liked it. It was chicklit which is my favorite genre. It focused more on the workplace which made it different from the usual chicklit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Merritt | 11/20/2013

    " Loved, loved, loved it...it made me want to go out and be what I want to be, do what I want to do...and then I remembered, I'm already doing that... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merri | 10/30/2013

    " Very funny book about the crazy things that happened on Wall Street before the market fell. Loved hearing a women's perspective about Wall Street. Alex was a great character. It reminded me of my earlier days living in NYC and the crazy first jobs that I had to deal with. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krysia | 9/28/2013

    " Too predictable and not really worth my time finishing, so I "abandoned ship" with this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 9/9/2013

    " WOW! Such a fun well written easy to read book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 8/26/2013

    " This was a fast read, and I really enjoyed it. I am in the same industry as the author was, and she based her main character on her younger self in that position. The work environment she described was completely familiar. So, it was a quick, interesting book to read over my lunch hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 8/12/2013

    " Alex is the new employee in the sales department on Wall Street. Not easy being new and even more dificult being female. An interesting read and a glimpse into a world about which I know nothing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hilma | 8/12/2013

    " This book looked like a good read, but I did not get past several chapters. For some reason I could not get into the story. Disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/29/2013

    " This book was an entertaining , quick read. Made me especially glad I didn't work in finance after college! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tabitha Sharp | 9/27/2012

    " Great book! Loved it! Great account of a woman making it in a man's world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carleton | 7/29/2012

    " Good summer book. Felt accurate Very readable - felt like made to be light movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 3/21/2012

    " To each their own, but I loved this book. I read reviews that criticized some of Alex's decisions or even the characters in the book, but it took me back to my twenties when you live and learn lessons the hard way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristine | 3/12/2012

    " I haven't read a fictional book that good in a really long time...I didn't want it to end!! Some of the "hazing" Girlie went through on the Street reminded me of my "character building" days at Anderson Consulting, makes for a great read! "
