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. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was exactly what I needed it to be - well written enough to be enjoyable and light enough to not burden my vacation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lizziet | 1/26/2014

    " It is a very NY book. It is not a extreme as Devil Wears Prada but a simple read with a happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Wikert | 1/9/2014

    " I liked this book, but didn't love it. I found myself predicting the end about halfway through and kind of just waiting to get through it. That being said, I really enjoy Lauren Weisberger's style of writing and felt the ending didn't happen exactly as I predicted so overall I would recommmend this book and will pass it on to the usual suspects. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deepa Jacob | 1/3/2014

    " Quite boring....Sound a lot like 'The Devil Wears Prada' but still does not seem to have the same charm... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/1/2014

    " A little too "R" rated for me, but it was a good read. Very interesting story... very similar to The Devil Wears Prada movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 1/1/2014

    " Quick read. Nothing immaculate but for fining it for a buck I can't complain :) "

    " Not worth reading, but if you must, then at least don't like it. Just meh. Meh meh meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy Montgomery | 12/5/2013

    " Not much substance, but a fun summer/beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria Leal | 12/3/2013

    " 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 Vika | 10/29/2013

    " Super predictable, but still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 9/24/2013

    " It was good book, but was slow to start for me. It got better towards the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry Beller | 8/3/2013

    " This author wrote 'The Devil Wears Prada' and this is the same story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sam | 7/11/2013

    " Weisberger's books are beginning to blend together. This one was totally predictable and wasn't even good enough to be escape fiction. I actually skipped about a hundred pages and had everything summed up in a single paragraph when the protagonist was complaining to her boyfriend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kellie | 7/3/2013

    " While I enjoyed reading this book because it was just a fun, flirty summer beach type read, it was nothing that blew my socks off to where I would recommend it to someone else to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traewilder | 4/28/2013

    " Total fun...great read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 3/24/2013

    " I wanted something light and easy after finishing a sad book and this fit the bill. It's basically The Devil Wears Prada set in the PR world rather than fashion (and with a nicer boss), but it was entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs. Lynch | 1/28/2013

    " Re-reading it as my last summer fun read before I delve into kid lit for the year. Bette is no Bridget Jones, but I liked the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phyllis Howegmailcom | 7/20/2012

    " Fun, summer, girlfriend book. I enjoyed the fact that the book took place in Manhattan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison Hayden | 4/16/2012

    " Hated it. Ditched it after only a few chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genelle | 12/21/2011

    " This book was an easy read, it was not a great book, but I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurel | 12/8/2011

    " I couldn't finish this book. The storyline was very underwhelming and I really couldn't get into the characters. I commute to Chicago for work every day and usually like having light reads to pass the time and this wasn't doing it for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb Hogan | 11/10/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Gray | 10/23/2011

    " Not a fan! Could have been me but I could not get into this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Hickman | 7/17/2011

    " Great for the plane or the beach. Not challenging, but a fun read. "

    " (taninmayadeger kisiler)seytan marka giyer in yazari o kitaptan sonra okudugum ünlülerin hayatini anlatan bir kitap "

    " Well detailed, and I absolutely loved the references and the humour, but I was so upset when it was finished and it left you wondering if Bette and Sammy got together or not! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystle | 6/5/2011

    " i loved this book about a girl who becomes a big party planner for celebrities and how she falls in love with a bouncer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cam | 6/1/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 5/27/2011

    " the New York club scene is an interesting scene to read about; never been a club-hopping person, so it had me hooked. But, there were some things that I really didn't need to read about or know. Sometimes ignorance is bliss! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 skiptoalittle | 5/27/2011

    " I couldn't even finish the book: the main character was not likable, none of the characters 'popped' and it wasn't as funny/interesting as "The Devil Wears Prada". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 5/23/2011

    " I liked this book but I couldn't help to think that it was a sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. "

  • 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cami | 5/17/2011

    " Very fairy-taleish.. Just a simple, fun read. "

  • 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. "
