No political science degree could ever prepare Elizabeth Miller for her new job as a second assistant at The Agency, whose clients include everyone you've never met, but you know who they're sleeping with. A former congressional intern in Washington, Lizzie made a bid for a life change that landed her a job a world away, where ethics and First Amendment debates take a backseat to pleading the Fifth for Ritalin-snorting boss Scott Wagner. He's the hottest young agent in Hollywood, who devotes his days to playing online poker, that is, when he's not closing a $30 million deal for one of his AAA-list clients.

And while getting $600 highlights from Cameron's colorist or organizing the strippers for George's birthday party come close to causing heart failure for this East Coast girl, the real dangers lurk elsewhere. But Lizzie is a survivor, and no Machiavellian assistant, lecherous producer, or power struggle at The Agency can douse her nascent dreams of climbing up the Hollywood ladder. But first she has to run down to the Coffee Bean to pick up that triple espresso, or Scott is going to throw something.

    " This book is surprisingly good for a dual-authored piece of professional-girl -fiction. I read the sequel when it came out, too :) "

    " I can't believe I finished this, but then I can't not stop a book I start. It was so memorable that I actually picked it up a second time, having blocked it from my memory. "

    " This book is highly entertaining. It's very similar to The Devil Wears Prada in it's style, and is a great plane read. "

    " Yeah just a cliche book but i was happy to read that it wasn't immediately cristal clear (at least to me) who her prince charming is going to be. I'ts a cliche chicklit of a girl working her way uo the hollywood ladder, but that's why I like reading chicklits :) "
