Book Summary from Amazon
In sweet, silly, and incredibly long digital missives, best newsroom pals Beth and Jennifer trade gossip over their romances—Beth with her marriage-phobic boyfriend, Chris, and Jennifer with her baby-mania-stricken husband, Mitch. What they don't know is that the newly hired computer guy, Lincoln, an Internet security officer charged with weeding out all things unnecessary or pornographic, is reading their messages. But lonely Lincoln lets the gals slide on their inappropriate office mail and gets hooked on their soapy dalliances, falling head over heels for the unlucky-in-love Beth.
My Review - 4 Great to the last drop
Sweeeeet, that is my word for this book. There were 3 star moments, 5 star highlights and many 4s tars so in the end I decided on a 4, great to the last drop. I don't do chick lit or romance often, possibly once or twice a year but I needed a light fun book and this was the perfect match. I smiled my way through this one.
I found the characters to be delightful. For some that may not think Lincolns job exist but it sure does to a degree, I have had to read emails for work, not a comfortable task. He had his very own soap opera via email. He fell in love, just how we sometimes fall in love with a character, not so far fetched right. The journey of reading the emails and following the life of Lincoln was entertaining for sure. This genre is always predictable, which is what I look forward to when I choose it, you just have to love the complete silliness and joy you get out of it.
We have the overbearing mom that of course the son loves, a momma's boy so to speak. Lincoln was just sweet, not many women's type but all women will enjoy being around kind of guy.
Think about arguing with a soap opera fan and telling them that they don't 'know' the person and how ridiculous it would be if they met that person for real. This was Lincoln, he realised how wrong it was when he didn't give them warnings, looked forward to reading the emails and realised he was falling for her. The sweet parts were when you realised how ridiculous both of them were without knowing about the other, funny.
I loved the modern touch of using emails for a novel, very now. I thought the writing was executed well, overall I think romance genre fans will love this one I think.
