Summary: From the flap-

“Erica Swift may run the marketing department of Rockit Wireless, but she doesn’t know a heck of a lot about tech. That’s okay- she could sell stilettos to a nun. But after her husband announces that he’s leaving her for a older woman- who knew the pruney president of his company was a cougar?- Erica is forced to reboot her own life. Suddenly “disaster recovery” takes on a whole new meaning, as Erica fends off the attention of some very eligible bachelors, hits on a perfect plan to save Rockit’s new product launch, and hones her abysmal text- messaging skills.”

Why did I pick this book? : Received as an reading copy off Goodreads.

Review: Although I didn’t relate to this book, it was a cute read. Despite the fact that the main character Erica could annoy me, there were enough interesting supporting characters to carry my interest. In particular I liked Teddy, Erica’s assistant. I found the humor of their interactions added to the story. Each chapter begins with a multiple choice question, which helps set the tone for the book. I would recommend this read to people who are into the chick-lit genre. This one helped pass the time pleasantly.
