When twenty-seven-year-old Bette Robinson quits her Manhattan banking job, she knows she won't miss the eighty-hour workweeks, her claustrophobic cubicle or her revolting boss's Quotes of the Day.

Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly she 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. 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. 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.

Listener Opinions

    " Bleah. Per non parlare dell'autocelebrazione dell'autrice nei ringraziamenti: stucchevole e inappropriata. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 2/11/2014

    " Loved this book. Interesting to see how rich live and party. Just glad that my life is nothing like there's but enjoyed getting a glance at that type of lifestyle. A fun and easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie Galyon | 2/8/2014

    " After reading this, it made me think who could one of the main characters be modelled after? Several people came to mind. Tale of a person pursuing their dream and losing their identity and being reminded to be true to themselves. I could read this book for hours at a time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirstin Nice | 2/7/2014

    " Compared to Lauren's first book, this was definitely a disappointment. It was a great read, very riveting, although plotline was unbelievable. It was hard for me to put it down and I finished in about 3 days. The disappointment came at the ending. It was another character gets despressed and instead of then having a happy ending, it was completely open ended. When I'm reading for fun, I expect a happy ending to my romantic books. If I'm reading for thought provoking, I'll pick a different genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 2/6/2014

    " Great book..just goes to show you...it's not as cool as you think it is to be "cool" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aileen | 1/20/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Burd | 1/19/2014

    " Excellent book! I love her style. I just wish I had time to read it all in one setting! Because of my job, it did take me two weeks! I will most certainly read her again. Lots of characters and set in NYC, the best city in the world! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen McGuire-Marshall | 1/18/2014

    " Super fab book. A great vacation read. By the same author of the Devil Wears Prada. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/16/2014

    " If you liked the Devil Wears Prada, you will like this book also. It's a quick read and will make you laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aryn | 1/16/2014

    " If you're feeling lazy and want an easy read, this is fun and lets you live vicariously through the main character. :) "

    " Refused to finish this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Daniel-Duckering | 12/5/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kilee | 9/3/2013

    " A really fun read although absolutely pointless. Not one I would necessarily recommend but I did find it entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb Hogan | 4/9/2013

    " Cute...easy "have one more day of vacation and I'm tired of novels that make me think" read. This fit the bill. Pure fluff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Findlay | 4/8/2013

    " The story was cute. The perfect no-brainer book for holidays. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jean Mc | 8/3/2012

    " Couldn't get through half of it. Everyone worth knowing isn't worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria Leal | 1/10/2012

    " After reading the Twilight series it hast taken me a bit to get into other books. I was so use to all the excitement and drama in those books. This one so far so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candie | 12/23/2011

    " I enjoyed this book so much more than The Devil Wears Prada!!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marjie | 11/6/2011

    " Terrible!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 9/12/2011

    " Good book, but maybe not as good as Chasing Harry Winston (Lauren Weisberger's other novel that isn't a major motion picture!) Still, very enjoyable, even though it wasn't like I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica N. | 8/27/2011

    " Great plot. Horrible language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 7/4/2011

    " Good book - you got to read about the inside world of celebrity PR. Makes you wonder how much of it is true :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 5/19/2011

    " This was a good, light read. I listened to the audiobook and Eliza Dushku does a great job! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 5/14/2011

    " literary dessert. Fluffy and sweet and sometimes necessary between simple carbohydrates and proteins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 5/9/2011

    " It was a fun read......I laughed a lot. I have always wanted to experience living in NYC and loved living it through the main character. And, it had an "old fashioned" happy ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/9/2011

    " Terribly predicable, but entertaining and funny. Fine for what it is (chick lit). While it had a lot of ties back to The Devil Wears Prada (at least the movie, as I haven't read the book) it also wasn't The Devil Wears Prada 2.0, which is always good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 4/30/2011

    " Meilleur que le Diable s'habille en Prada! A lire si vous aimez les paillettes et la jet set! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 4/29/2011

    " I really like her writing style, but I'm tired of books about spoiled, nasty, rich people and the "innocent" people who get caught in the middle of their escapades. I probably would have found this much more witty if I read it 5 years ago! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 4/26/2011

    " This book was all over the place. I never felt like I had a firm grasp of the character because so much fluff was added to the chapters leading up to the real story. Much more fluff than was necessary. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 4/22/2011

    " This is totally and completely vacuous, but I think that was the purpose of the book. There's no depth or really any multi dimensional characters and it reads like a very formulaic chick lit novel but without any real twists or turns. It's a beach read at best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 4/15/2011

    " First: The Devil Wears Prada really stressed me out.

    Second: Everyone Worth Knowing is really pointless. Nothing really seems to happen at all throughout the book.

    Third: One character has a 7 karat diamond engagement ring. I want a 7 karat diamond ring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 4/10/2011

    " Cute easy read, but I found very shallow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charna Charms | 3/12/2011

    " Funny but different from the Devil Wears Prada. "
