First Line Friday #8

Today on First Line Friday is the book that got me reading again all those years ago. My aunt gave it to me and it literally had me laughing out loud! A coworker even asked if she could borrow it.  I need to revisit this book again!

Of course I have secrets.

Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:

Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.

Sammy the goldfish in my parents’ kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.

Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks.
I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.

From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.

Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me.
I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.

Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.

But come Monday morning, Emma’s office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn’t possibly get worse—Until they do.

    I enjoy her Sophie Kinsella’s books, they are a hoot. Glad this one got you reading after an absence.

      It really is! I would read it at work in between phone calls (I worked in a call center at the time) and would be laughing out loud. The lady sitting across from me asked to borrow it because of it. She enjoyed it and I think it actually got her reading. She got her first kindle before I got mine! lol! I love spreading the love of reading!
