"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?
Attachments was our book club choice for this month. The girls were so awesome and looked for a book I hadn’t yet read (which is sometimes a hard thing to do!). I loved Eleanor & Park so much that I am going to need to read everything that Rainbow has to offer. I want to be real-life friends with Rainbow, I think we have similar personalities.
- This book was hilarious! I was almost peed my pants just reading the first page. I love this girls, I would SO be friends with them!
- Lincoln was so adorably dorky. I love that he had no idea how cute he was and that he was so charming. He was sensitive and really broken from a relationship, but I loved seeing how he started to rebuild his life and be the man he wants to be.
- Doris was amazing. She was the perfect side character. I think she made this book as amazing as Park’s mom did in Eleanor & Park.
- This book just hit home. I have a lot of the same fears as Jennifer with having a child and I just felt that I could relate a lot to her. It was neat to see her mindset change as she grew more into the idea of being a mother.
- The only gripe I had was that I wanted more of the story – to see how things keep progressing. Maybe there will be an Attachments sequel!
