Meet Kate Mackenzie. She:
* works for the T.O.D. (short for Tyrannical Office Despot, also known as Amy Jenkins, Director of the Human Resources Division at the New York Journal)
* is sleeping on the couch because her boyfriend of ten years refuses to commit
* can't find an affordable studio apartment anywhere in New York City
* thinks things can't get any worse
They can. Because:
* The T.O.D. is making her fire the most popular employee in the paper's senior staff dining room
* that employee is now suing Kate for wrongful termination, and
* now Kate has to give a deposition in front of Mitch Hertzog, the scion of one of Manhattan's wealthiest law families, who embraces everything Kate most despises ... but also happens to have a nice smile and a killer bod.
The last thing anybody—least of all Kate Mackenzie—expects to find in a legal arbitration is love. But that's the kind of this that can happen when ... BOY MEETS GIRL.
When cartoonist Jane Harris's best friend Holly, New York Journal art director, announces that she's eloping to Italy with longtime doctor boyfriend Mark, and asks Jane to come along as her witness, Jane jumps at the chance, delighted by the prospect of her first ever trip to Europe.
What Jane doesn't gamble on is Mark's witness, New York Journal foreign affairs correspondent Cal Langdon. It's hate at first sight for Jane and Cal, and neither is too happy at the prospect of sharing a villa with one another for a week-not even in the beautiful and picturesque Le Marche countryside.
But when Holly and Mark s wedding plans hit a major snag that only Jane and Cal can repair, the two find themselves having to put aside their mutual dislike for one another in order to get their best friends on the road to wedded bliss, and end up on a road themselves-one neither of them ever expected....
My first review of Boy Meets Girl
I loved rereading these so much! I mean, they're Meg Cabot books, and the style of writing, of just communicating in emails, texts, and journal entries for Every Boy's Got One, and other various means of written communication-not book communication, but between people, is just so good!
They're just so hilarious! I mean, these characters! From Amy Jenks, and the situation there, and her nickname for her, to the way that Jane and Cal repair the snag, it was just so good! And these characters seemed to have a lot of fun along the way-just like I did!
The situations they get into! It's hard to see how they could do so, but it's books, which makes it all the more better! I just enjoyed it so much! Such hilarity! And coupled with these characters just took it to over the top awesomeness!
The endings! I mean, what with the relationships between these characters, that's just kinda to be expected! They were so awesome, from Kate and Mitch's I hate everything that you believe, but love your body relationship, to Jane and Cal's prickly relationship! So good!
I loved rereading these books, they were just so great, and yeah, need to reread more Meg Cabot books!
