My personal assistant—a.k.a. half my brain—has abandoned me to have a baby. Alright, alright, I’m not a total jerk, but the temporary virtual assistant Carla left in her place is driving me crazy.
I’ve repeatedly refused to fill out Amy Walker’s way-too-friendly questionnaire. But somehow, she ninjas me into giving up details about my private life—all while suffering her oh-so-subtle jabs at my likes, dislikes, even my system for running my business.
I don’t care what she heard, I am not a problem child. I just know what’s tried and true.
At first, her feel-good P.S. quotes sounded more like B.S. Yet our emails and texts gradually take on a new dimension, and I find myself thinking of her as something I haven’t cultivated in a long time. A friend.
Maybe she’s right. It’s time I get a life. Starting with stepping out from behind the screen and putting my feelings on the line. I’ll never know unless I try.
Note: Contains a grumpy, workaholic tech CEO with a guarded heart, and a virtual assistant whose skills border on diabolical. Also, two cats named Ramen and Sushi.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I knew this was one that I wanted to read because the excerpts were so funny.
This was by far one of the funniest books I have read in a while! While this book could be confusing and trust me writing about it can be it makes perfect sense when you read it. We have two people who appear to be so different that there is no way anything will work with them. What gets discovered is that for as different as Amy and Jackson appear they are really more alike. Both are hiding behind personas they created to protect themselves.
I loved the bantering they have back and forth via emails and messages. Can you just imagine? I have a hard time with messages because I’m never sure if what I’m reading is meant to sarcastic or not. Amy’s messages you know they are meant that way. She is way too personal about things for Jackson. After all she is an assistant and doesn’t need that much information. Like I said this was a joy to read and I know that it will be a book that I will read again and again.
Thank you for your inquiry about our services and for filling out our initial application. It’ll be a pleasure to help you find just the right virtual assistant for your need. Please, let me make sure we got some details right. On the application, you describe your current boss as impatient, aggressive, micromanaging, and somehow a social piranha.
Did I misread it? Is there a possibility that this was a typo?
If you could please correct or expand on your description, I’ll appreciate it. Mrs. Darlington explained our mission correctly. We always find the most fitting assistant for your company. Even for social piranhas. We have the right person for that. Our personnel is highly trained and holds at least a bachelor degree.
