Reader Review: Emma just blabbered all her secrets to this American stranger on the plane and guess what, he turns out to be her boss?! The head honcho?! As she steers through an obviously doomed relationship (she is in denial for the first few chapters but thankfully that ends), her attraction for her boss grows. But he KNOWS everything about her that doesn't want ANYONE to know!!! She can't come clean about this feeling... what about the scrutinizing co-workers? What about him? And she definitely not a girl who would sleep her way up! What about the family that ignores her? How is she going to get on with her life with all these problems?
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's I've Got Your Number.
With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:
Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
Sammy the goldfish in my parents’ kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.
Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks.
I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.
Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me.
I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.
Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.
But come Monday morning, Emma’s office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from
the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn’t possibly get worse—Until they do.

Can You Keep a Secret?
Of course I have secrets.
Of course I do. Everyone has a few secrets. It’s completely normal.
I’m not talking about big, earth-shattering secrets. Not the-president-is planning-to-bomb-Japan-and-only-Will-Smith- can-save-the-world type secrets. Just normal, everyday little secrets.
Like, for example, here are a few random secrets of mine, off the top of my head:
1.My Kate Spade bag is a fake.
2.I love sweet sherry, the least cool drink in the universe.
3.I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even exactly what it is.
4.I weigh 128 pounds. Not 118, like my boyfriend, Connor, thinks. (Although, in my defense, I was planning to go on a diet when I told him that. And, to be fair, it is only one number different.)
5.I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
6.Sometimes, when we’re right in the middle of passionate sex, I suddenly want to laugh.
7.I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
8.I’ve already drunk the wine that Dad told me to save for twenty years.
9.Sammy the goldfish at home isn’t the same goldfish that Mum and Dad gave me to look after when they went to Egypt.
10.When my colleague Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.)
11.I once had this weird lesbian dream about my flatmate Lissy.
12.My G-string is hurting me.
13.I’ve always had this deep-down conviction that I’m not like everybody else, and there’s

Having never read Sophie Kinsella before, I was familiar with her shop-a-holics series when I got this book. Considering the humor in this book, I'm not surprised she's doing so well in the chick-lit world. It provides those situations that some of us get into and all of us can laugh at. If you're in a sour mood and need something to lighten you up, this is the book for you.

I loved the character. Throughout the book and some of her secrets I just kept trying to judge how i would feel if i was in her shoes. I mean imagined telling someone all your secrets which no one else knew and thinking you would never see them again to all of a sudden have them be such a big focus in your life its enough to give you palpitations. If you want something light and funny definitely a must-read.
