Whenever I mark a book as favorite, I find it difficult to review it. So I usually need a few days to get my thoughts in order. I loved the story and the characters. Madison (Maddy) and her crazy friend Karsynn (Kars) have no luck finding a job and end up at the Lightning Speed Call Center. Mika is a handsome guy from Belgium, who resembles Zac Efron in looks. Another character that needs a mention is Truong, a Vietnamese, and a Perez Hilton of the workplace.
I liked the way the author led the story and kept me engrossed in the book. Madison's colleagues are from different cultural backgrounds which makes the story even more fun to read. Dealing with crazy callers, hating their supervisor and coping with some mean colleagues, that's what makes up Maddy's professional life. However, there was a very little part about her personal life. Her mother doesn't approve of her job at the call center but she doesn't seem to care much about her.
I received an e-copy of the book from the author, Lisa Lim, for an honest review.I have never read a chick lit novel before so this was my first one. This book will make you recall your own first job experience. I strongly recommend it to people who read chick lit and those who want a light-hearted read.

Favorite Quote:
Gazing into my eyes, he draws an imaginary
line over my nose, traces my lips and looks at me as though memorizing my every feature.
Touching his forehead to mine, he says in a low and intimate voice, “You.”

My Rating:

  1. This book sounds interesting. Now I must get the book and read it as soon as I have time.

  2. This book is like my life five years ago in a novel. Minus the romance which would have made working in a call centre bearable!! Sounds like a very interesting read :)

  3. Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to write this lovely review. I really appreciate it =)

  4. I really enjoyed this book.

    @Lisa Thank you Lisa, for giving me a review copy.
