About this eBook

The hilarious romantic comedy from NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR Sophie Kinsella . . . soon to be a major motion picture!

Emma is like every girl in the world. She has a few little secrets.

Secrets from her mother:
1. I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom to Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching TV.

... From her boyfriend:
2. I’m a size twelve. Not a size eight, like Connor thinks.
3. I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.

... From her colleagues:
4. When Artemis really annoys me (which is pretty much every day), I feed her plant orange juice.
5. It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.

...Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world:
6. My G string is hurting me.
7. I faked my Maths GCSE grade on my CV.
8. 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. After all, she’ll never see him again.

But on 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.

Love love love this book. It's my absolute fave. First time i read it, I was gripped. I couldn't put it down. Shared it round the office and they all loved it even the men. There is a twist the middle that I almost cried along with the lead character. I felt for her and couldn't believe he had done what he had done. Going to get it on my phone so I can read it whenever I need to read on a flight or commute.

I picked up this book as a light read between books and I absolutely adored it. First time I read this author's books and I will definately persue her other work. Emma was a bit of a dimwit at times, but aren't we all and that made her all the more endearing and Jack - well he was just adorable ! This is one of those books that I ordinarily would not have picked up but am so very glad to have come across it. So disappointed that it is now finished as I was so thoroughly enjoying the read.
