Goodreads: Mackenzie Corbett has always dreamed of living in New York City. Now, almost two years into her job as an associate at a premier Manhattan law firm, she's living her fantasy--big salary, high profile deals, cute boyfriend, designer bag on her arm. The giant bags under her eyes from lack of sleep don't fit into the fantasy, though. To make matters worse, she's being tormented by a bitter, bitchy senior associate, her boyfriend is annoyed she never has time for him, and now she's stuck on the deal from hell with a partner whose biggest claim to fame is throwing a stapler at a cleaning lady because she touched his ficus plant.
With the opportunity to secure a prestigious secondment on line, the overachiever in her is determined to endure whatever it takes to close the biggest deal in the firm's history. But when Mackenzie finds herself the focus of a devastating investigation her dream job begins spiraling into a nightmare.
Kritters Thoughts: A young lawyer is trying to work her way up the ladder in a big New York law firm, but she has to sacrifice a long list of things to make it to the top.
Mackenzie is a typical character in a typical book, but following her journey was more than typical. She was spunky and had sass but even in a lawyer world she had morals and tried her darndest to stay near her moral compass and I adored her for it. It was interesting to read about her relationship with a fellow lawyer and how different departments in law firms have a varying level of workload and hours they are expected to be in the office - learned something new! I loved how real Mackenzie was and how real the book felt.
This book can be put in the large category of new girl, big city will she survive? And I love these books! They are a refreshing break from some more daunting books and I love the light easy quality of them. This is a debut and I am excited to put this author on my ones to watch list, I could buy her next book without knowing much of the synopsis!
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
