Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She's always been a very nervous flyer. She really thinks that this could be her last moment. So, naturally enough, she starts telling the man sitting next to her - quite a dishy American, but she's too frightened to notice -all her innermost secrets. She survives the flight, of course, and the next morning the famous founding boss of the whole mega corporation she works for is coming for a look at the UK branch. As he walks around, Emma looks up and realises--it's the man from the plane. What will he do with her secrets? He knows them all - but she doesn't know a single one of his. Or ... does she?

After hearing that the movie based on this book is in pre-production, I wanted to get it read soon. This was definitely an enjoyable read with some true lol moments. As per typical Brit lit, the story doesn't just focus on the impending romance, but also on multiple varying secondary characters and dynamics that surround the protagonist. In this case, it's Emma and her friends, family, and co-workers. Not to mention, a high profile hero to her heroine. There may haven been a few romantic fiction clichés and some points where the story dragged a bit, but overall I had fun and was pleased with the cinematic ending.

In addition to reading the ebook, I also listened to a large portion on audio and was entertained by the exceptional narration.

Fun and girly quick read. Great for read for the beach or poolside.

There's just something so natural and so human about the insecurities and then the delusions of Emma. and though this might be a comic story first, this was a very cheeky romantic romp for me.

This book is a really good for kids who keep secrets, because it teaches you not to keep them. It will cause a lot of problems between people, you should keep secrets from anyone; not your parents, friends, or your boyfriend. If you keep a secret from them, everyone that you kept it from will probably not to you ever again.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This book was funny and hard to put down. Sophie Kinsella created a very likeable main character in this book."

Another awesomely witty novel by Kinsella! Filled with humour, romance and the slight awkward moments, I highly recommend this novel. Moral of this story: keep some secrets to yourself!

Quirky... Entertaining... Plenty of 'laugh out loud' situations. I recommend it :)
