Love you, love you not
Poppy is an actress but she has trouble finding new work. Her last character has been killed off and now she is jobless. She is so desperate that she does anything to get a job. So she pretends to be Doris, a successful assistant. Except she does not have any experience. But how hard can it be? It is just picking up the phone right?
Her new boss Ryan is a grumpy boss and he scares his assistants but this time he is determined to find someone who doesn’t quit after just one day.
Where to begin? Just one month ago I read another book by Jo Watson called ‘Love to hate you‘ and I really loved that one. It was probably one of my favorite books of January 2021. But after reading this book I think I’ve found an author I really like because this book was amazing. I think it was even better than the first book I read and I thought that was impossible. I never give a book 10 out of 10 but I was so close to giving this book the highest rating.
Yes, it was really that good. First of all, I just love her writing style. After two books I know now that I just can’t put down her books. I just can’t! It never gets boring. Of course, this is a good thing but not so good for my sleep. Luckily, it was a Saturday night and I didn’t have to go to work the next day.
And I also think the storyline is great. Poppy tries to get a job and lies to her new boss. And the whole story was just so cute and funny. I love those kinds of those books. Sometimes I just need something cute and funny to forget the rest of the world and my ‘problems’. I also like that this book took place in South Africa. Normally the books I read take place in the UK or America, so this was a nice change.
Luckily, I also found out that she wrote a lot of books (more than 10) so I think I am going to find and buy those (e)books too. I want to read more of her. I want to find out if her other books are as good as this one. Honestly, there wasn’t a thing I didn’t like about this book. If you like also romantic, cute, and funny stories read this book! Especially when you are also a fan of Jill Mansell her books.
Fun fact: I was just thinking about how her books would be really amazing movies. Not much later I read on her Goodread pages that she writes her books to become movies. At least, that is one of her dreams. So yes, I am really hoping for this to happen!
