I worked in the "biz" as an assistant to a producer for approximately ten years. Comparing my experience with Lizzie's, I think she got off pretty easy. Plus she got a (single, straight) guy in the end. I had to fend off my (married) boss, (married) crew members, my boss trying to "set me up" with other (married) producers, etc. Thank goodness I had many friends outside of the business. This was an enjoyable read. It was easy, light, and I didn't have to think too much while reading. The only problem I had was with the "J" names - Jake Hudson and Jason Blum. At least they weren't Jake and Jack or Jackson and Jason. Again, enjoyed the trip back to my old life!

Kind of like "The Devil Wears Prada," but not as good.

An OK beach read book.

This book was a bit slow, and seemed to be the author's way of namedropping more than anything else. It got better toward the last quarter of the book and Luke Lloyd is a nice character, but there is nothing about Lizzie, the main character, that makes you love her like some of the better chick lit books out there. Not horrible, but so many better books out there.

I absolutely loved this book! Elizabeth Miller graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University with a degree in economics and political science. Unable to find a job in Washington, DC, she ends up in Hollywood as a second assistant at the Agency, an agency for actors and movie stars.

To say she experiences culture shock is an understatement! She starts out hating LA, the men in LA, her job, and her coworkers. Luke, the guy she has a crush on, has a sexy French girlfriend.

To find out how she manages to overcome these obstacles, read the book.

The story line was kind of fun, but the language was pretty raw. It would have been better with a few less raunchy remarks.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a very quick, perfect for the beach read. It has been compared to "The Devil Wears Prada" and I actually like this book quite a bit more.
