"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . " From the award-winning author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about love in the workplace.
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 . . . ?
What a lovely, sweet, adorable, charming book. I’m freaking smitten. This is my favorite Rainbow Rowell book I’ve ever read. I’m completely and utterly in love with it.
Everything about it is wonderful. The characters are well-developed, colorful, and interesting. The setting is fun, I love that it’s set around the millennium, it all lent itself to this very cool retro feel. The story itself had this wonderful 90’s romantic comedy feel to it – similar to You’ve Got Mail. It’s very smart and quick-witted, one so wonderful that it’s one of the few movies you have to watch every time it’s on TV. It felt like being wrapped in a big, warm, cozy sweater.
Everything about this book is lovely and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I don’t know why I’ve never heard of it and nobody is talking about it. I’d never even heard of it before, which is surprising given how popular Rainbow Rowell is in the romance community. I just happened upon it at Barnes & Noble and the cover and synopsis sucked me in, so I took a leap of faith. Attachments is so beautiful and sweet, read it, love it, tell your friends.
