I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of the same humor that was in her first book. It really kept my attention for the most part and I enjoyed seeing what the world is like from the rich perspective. It really reinforced something that my parents have told me for a long time; that if you
have money, it doesn't mean it makes you happy.

I really liked how that the story showed that lesson. I liked Luke's character a lot but I had to agree with Lexington when she said he was kinda stuffy. But he proved us wrong in the end and turned out to be a really fun character.

But I didn't appreciate Lexington's whining in the beginning of the book at all. I know it goes with the whole rich, spoiled heiress thing but I really hate when people act like that so it got on my nerves. I was extremely happy when that part of the book was done. I also wish that she had spent more time on the jobs. We got in depth into some of them but I would have enjoyed it a bit more if we could have gotten a little more involved in some of the jobs that she did end up enjoying such as the florist job.

But, overall, I really did enjoy reading this book. I hope she comes out with a new one soon.

  1. Haha oh, I deal with enough four year old whining that I probably wouldn't make it very far in this one! No need for EXTRA whining form a girl old enough to know better. ;O)
