Blurb from

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

My Review:

  I absolutely loved this novel. It's perfectly balanced in every way, with just the right amount of realism to make it unpredictable and not cheesy, without being depressingly realistic. 

  There weren't any annoying sentences where the grammar hurts your eyes. The conversations between Jennifer and Beth are so fun to read, they're funny and don't take themselves too seriously.

  I honestly don't know how to write a review that will give this book the credit it deserves without sounding like an advertisement. 

  In short, it's a cute story that I think most people would enjoy, no sensitive subjects, really universal themes, great mixture of comedy, drama, and romance.

Ever Yours~
