This is a wonderful book. I laughed out loud...in public even. Definitely want to read more by this author...she is very funny in a totally relatable way. Reminds me of Janet Evanovich's writing. Highly recommend.

This was a very amusing book from beginning to end. A few laugh at loud parts as well. Very worth the time.

Ok...so I felt obligated to write a review on this book even though I read it so long ago (2005, when it first came our) I don't really remember the story. What I do remember is that I absolutely loved it. LOL I know how can I write a review based on pretty much nothing, well this was one of the first books that I ever read (for enjoyment, I never liked to read before) and loved. I need to read it again, because it was very funny and fast and entertaining. I related to the main character alot. You won't be wasting your time reading this book, it was great!! It was like reading the story of your favorite Romantic Comedy movie.

This must be the funniest book I've read lately. The author has a wicked sense of humor.

A very funny book with a little bit of reality to keep the pages turning. I laughed out loud a few times, rare for me.
Definitely a page turner!

At first I didn't think I'd get through this book but it picked up was a decent chick lit book.

This book amazing. I was laughing out loud constantly. The story flowed fantastically. Great defined characters. The worst part was that it had to end. I would have kept reading even if it was a freakishly long book like one of those harry potter books. I ordered it from BN.com not knowing how long it was. I got it in the mail and was shocked, once I got to the last chapter I was sad it would be over soon.

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ!

More like a Total Waste of Time. This is the most disappointing book that I read all year. The only thing I liked about it was the advice to her niece at the start of every chapter, which is about one or two sentences. This book was just mindless and the characters were silly, esp her boss. And her parents smoking pot was just plain poor taste.

Funny chick lit. I liked that the character's job was an assistant to a celebrity. It brought some fun and mayhem to the story.

I really loved this book...some parts were laugh-out-loud funny and some of the main character's pieces of advice were really funny (and scarily accurate). A fun piece of chick lit.

This book was very fun to read. I liked that the main character was normal and had a good attitude... She seemed pretty level-headed considering the setting and family relationships. It was like I was reading about someone who I could be friends with. Can't wait for more by this author!!

I LOVED this book. It's funny that this book shows a very "happy go-lightly" side of living on the edges of Hollywood (the main character works for a famous actor I think anyone would love to work for; he often throws money at her to do simple things and never seems to have an ego trip on anyone.) I also read "The Year of Living Famously" by Laura Caldwell and it gives a much different, darker view of Hollywood. Both books were great, but this one was more fun to read.

Started off good, but got a bit slow towards the end. Still an enjoyable read.

Great story line and absolutely hilarious characters. Not quite as funny as Misery Loves Cabernet but it will still make you laugh. Love everything written by this author.

A total waste of time. This was the first book in a long time I had to put away early.
