Sally Friday is a mess. Not only is she tortured by self-doubt, but she is also clumsy and has no fashion sense. However, these qualities are exactly what her boss is counting on when she sends her to spy on reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. Sally, normally an office clerk for the gossip magazine, Normandy, interviews for the position as Roman's new secretary. His jealous PA, Antonia, immediately hires the girl, confident that her disheveled appearance will make her invisible to Roman's wandering eye. Reliably disaster-prone, Sally makes a memorable first impression, and Roman wonders if he will survive her employment. But there is something about Sally that Roman can't dismiss. Unlike every other woman, she is unswayed by his masculine good looks, and he keeps catching intriguing glimpses of her feminine potential. When Sally takes a midnight dip in his pool, Roman makes an eye-popping discovery: Sally is hiding a luscious hour-glass figure beneath those baggy clothes. Her hidden assets as well as her refreshing innocence have Roman hooked. That is, until his growing feelings and fear of commitment get in the way and he decides to back off. With the help of Roman's best friend Paul, Sally plays to Roman's jealousy and gives him a taste of his own medicine. But what will Roman do when Sally's deceit is revealed?

Are you looking for a little light summer reading? Then look no further than "His Girl Friday" by Ellen March. Sally's only ever known the simple life. She lives a meager lifestyle and doesn't really allow herself to dream. She grew up thinking she was the ugly duckling and tries to shrink in the shadows accordingly. It's too bad she's a clumsy mess who can't help but be noticed regularly for one "accident" or another. When an undercover assignment for the magazine she clerks at falls into her lap, Sally finally has an opportunity to see what life on the other side looks like. What she finds starts her on an epic journey that will change her life and have her questioning everything she ever thought about herself. I found Sally to be quite funny and entertaining. She's very straightforward and unassuming. Even surrounded by the opulent lifestyle she still manages to hang on to her humbleness and the simplicity that she brings out in every situation. My only criticism is about how she sees herself. For someone who was able to see past the outward appearance of just about everything she was consistently unable to do that with herself. I understood that she didn't think herself at all attractive but I wished she hadn't continued to harp on it. It detracted from her general quirkiness and the idea that she didn't really care about that in others. Roman was the typical playboy becoming bored with his easy lifestyle. I think that March played a little too close to that stereotype. For most of the book he seems quite one dimensional and I found it a little hard to understand why Sally would waste her time on him. I was over halfway through the book before I actually saw a crack in his armor and it was only then that I was able to connect with him. I would have liked to see more development with him and more of a reason behind his womanizing ways. I really enjoyed the relationship Sally developed with Roman's best friend, Paul. He is smart, funny, and possesses a wry sense of humor that was a great match with Sally. They had awesome chemistry and if it weren't for the fact that he was gay I would have been rooting for this twosome instead. March's style is fairly easy to read and will make for good light reading. The story is fluid and not too deep. Overall I liked the story line and found the character of Sally and her quirks entertaining enough to keep me interested. *I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon, My Secret Book Spot
