Boy Meets Girl (Boy, #2) Read Online Free - 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 thing that can happen when...
Boy meets girl.

One thing that struck me most is when the father of the Hortzags said: “..I can see how this information might be upsetting to some of you. However, I had a near death experience a year ago, and it taught me one thing: Don’t waste your time on astupid shit. And frankly, all I seem to hear from so...

Ten pages into this book and I was ready to give up. But I persevered and found myself getting into it despite myself. The most important thing to realise before starting this is that it's not a novel. That is to say there are no chapters and no dialogue. Instead, the entire book is made up of le...

In a continuing "series*" of modern epistolary romances, we have added IM conversations to the mix, and journals kept mostly on scrap paper. Again we have a recently jilted protagonist who bumps into an extremely eligible bachelor only in this book, over the course of a fortnight they interact ma...

As a fan of Meg Cabot, I know that her books can be funny at times, but I was surprised at the number of times I actually laughed out loud while reading this book.
Although this is definitely a stand-alone book, I did appreciate the return of several characters from Boy Next Door in minor roles as...

This book left me in a really good mood. It was a light hearted, fun and entertaining romantic comedy that had me laughing out loud several times.
It is the first book I have read that is written entirely in the form of emails, journal entries, receipts, instant messaging, menus, memos, dispositi...

[Small edit: I forgot to add that in this piece there was a brilliant example of a terrible text of song. Really horrible. It could be used as an example in lessons ;-) I copy it at the end of the review.]
It was funny and entertaining like the whole series but I have found it a little less witty...

Meg Cabot is an old acquaintance of mine. She features in my bookshelves ever since I was in my tweens, with The Princess Diaries. At the time I found her phenomenal but that feeling has since died down.
Not to say I don't appreciate her writing. Her young adult/adult novels are some of the most e...

Boy Meets Girl is the first book I've read by Meg Cabot, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Typically, books written in the form of letters between characters do not appeal to me, but this book was cleverly designed and I couldn't help but fall into the storyline and be captivated from the get go. It...

As the first book in the series, this novel is written as a modern epistolary. With texts and emails exchanges, notes, letters, and reports.
I loved the second book in the boys series. It is just as witty, fun, and smart as the first one. The epistolary interactions were so clever and fun to read....

These books do not particularly embed themselves deep into my psyche; I have, in fact, forgotten even the broad plotline. But reading them delights me. The are funny, they are charming, they beguile an hour or two which might otherwise be fraught wi...
