Amber is a twenty-something, out of university with a degree she’s not sure what to do with… so she temps in order to earn enough money to live in London.
One of her favourite life-hacks is to attend modern art gallery openings for free wine. It is during one of these that she thinks ‘if they can do it, why not me?’, and meeting a handsome gallery promoter cements her ambition to become famous through her art.
With the help—and sometimes hindrance—of her friends Farrell, Bibiana, and Egg (short for Egbert), can Amber achieve her dream AND snag handsome Elliott?
The title drew me to this book but if you’re expecting office romance with a series of billionaire bosses you will be disappointed. I like the quirkiness of the first few chapters. The characters are vivid; full of flaws and oddities, which make them worth getting to know. I particularly like Amber’s flat mate Egg.
The plot is simple and easy to follow with no real surprises. I can understand why this story is popular on Wattpad it would be better read as a serial than a novel. The pacing in the middle sections is too slow for me. That said it is full of satirical humour and light romance and definitely worth a read.
I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
