There have been a slew of “working girl in the city” chick lit novels this summer so far, much to my delight. This latest debut novel by Jennifer van der Kwast features Sarah, a young woman who has been unemployed for over six months. Luckily she is scraping by with the odd freelance under-the-table manuscript-reading job (for her previous boss who had laid her off) and a string of unfortunate temp positions. However, at one such position she meets Jake – a gorgeous guy who had recently dumped his girlfriend after catching her cheating.
Sarah and Jake really hit it off and are very attracted to each other and share the same passion for movies, but Sara can’t help but wonder if Jake is merely on the rebound. After all, the break-up with his stunning ex girlfriend seems to have devastated him.
