At first I was very annoyed that the whole book is written as emails, notes, memorandums, etc. But I always finish a book no matter what. Once I started, I found it was very easy to read and you really got the whole story and it was really quite humorous. I enjoyed it.

Cute story of a romance between Kate Mackenzie an HR rep, and Mitchell Hertzog, a lawyer representing her company, told through emails, phone calls, and diary entries much like "The Boy Next Door" and "Every Boy Has One". Kate is made to fire a much loved pastry lady by her boss, the T.O.D (tyrannical office despot), because the pastry lady refused to serve the T.O.D's equally hated fiance. Kates protests fall on deaf ears. When the pastry lady comes back with a lawsuit Kate's job is in jeopardy and the company's lawyer - Michael Hertzog must step in.

This was very cute! The whole thing is written in various forms of modern correspondence -- instant messaging and email mostly, with some personal journal entries and the occasional note, memo, transcript, or store receipt to round things out. That did give me a slightly removed feeling at first so it took a little while to feel like I knew the characters. By the end I was flowing right along and wanted more! This is a very fast, easy, and fun read.

And I may have to give some of Ida's recipes a try! The gingersnaps are calling to me....

Laughed out loud. I enjoyed this book so much I immediately requested another by the same author. Done is a format of e-mails, phone calls, interoffice correspondence.

I feel that out of the Boy/Girl series, this one was lacking compared to the others. In the start of the book, it takes a bit to get used to the characters and to get a feel for who they are. Once you get to the second meeting with everyone in the lawyer's office about the wrongful firing of an employee, it gets a lot better and the story line moves much much quicker. It was still a good read especially if you want a change of pace with a book written in emails, journal entries, and phone messages!

This was a fun, easy to read. I liked the format that the book is written in (emails, phone calls, IMs, interoffice memos) -- definitely different from the normal book, but yet still engaging and interesting.

Another great Meg Cabot book. Quick read and the e-mail/messaging format made it so much faster. But it was a great way to see life via e-mails. It makes me think of the books that could be written about my daily e-mails.

An easy book to get through. Kind of wish that I had thought of writing a book through emails...different enough to spice up an fairly straightforward chick lit plotline!

A fun read in the style of The Boy Next Door. Amusing format of emails, memos etc. Not quite as fun as TBND but an engaging fun quick summer read

I loved this book so much that it kept me up almost every night until 11:30p.m. it is hilarious; it had me crying I was laughing so hard. Read it, it's worth your time. The book is fun and very readable. I'd recommend it to all Meg Cabot fans.

Readable, enjoyable chick-lit. No traditional text, all different forms of email, memos, and journal entries. Sounds strained, but works pretty well.

Cute book. Easy summer beach read. The format was a little hard to pick up on at first, but was easy to read after the first few pages. It is my fist Meg Cabot book and I plan to read more. Enjoy!

Love this book and the others in the boy series!!! The email style of writing is so great! You can read in short bursts if needed, but you won't want to. I found myself thinking I had only read a couple of pages but had actually read 20-30. Great writing style with a story that grabs you and won't let go.

Cute book!

A fun easy-to-read book in the same style as The Boy Next Door -story told in form of emails, IM's, journal entries, etc- and some glimpses of characters from that book as well. I didn't enjoy it as much as the other "Boy" books... storyline just didn't grab my attention, or my heart. But, it's great for a summer read on the beach.

A really fun story by Meg Cabot, written in the form of emails between 2 friends and a miserable boss. A very quick read that can be finished in a day or two, just because you want to know if the girl gets the boy!

Meet Kate Mackenzie, She:
works for the T.O.D. (short for Tyrannical Office Despot, also known as Amy Jenkins, Director of the Human Resources Division at the New York Journal): is sleeping on the couch because her boyfriend of ten years refuses to commit; can't find an affordable studio apartment anywhere in New York City; thinks things can't get any worse.

They can, Because: the T.O.D. is making her fire the most popular employee in the paper's senior staff dining room; that employee is now suing Kate for wrongful termination, and now Kate has to give a depostion in front of Mitch Hertzog, the scion of one of Manhattan's wealthiest law families, who embraces everything Kate most despises...but also happens to have a nice smile and killer bod.
The last thing anybody--least of all Kate Mackenzie-expects to find in a legal arbitration is love. But that's the kind of thing that can happen when....Boy Meets Girl
