Suze Wilding and Lloyd Rockwell are complete strangers. She lives in London; he lives in New York. But when their advertising firm sponsors a job swap, having them trade apartments and jobs for the summer, they find themselves living each other’s lives.

From the beginning, these two seem polar opposites—Suze is impetuous, brash, and commitment phobic, whereas Lloyd, cautious and thoughtful, is looking to settle down with his suitable girlfriend. But when Suze discovers a plot at work to get Lloyd fired, the two begin communicating long-distance, and can’t help wondering if they might just be perfect for one another

cute and funny

Reader reviewed by abscae

Lloyd Rockwell is living the life: he's a hotshot in his office at Manhattan with the perfect girlfriend. Yet Suze Wilding seems to be the complete opposite, not exactly revered for her work at her office and currently loverless (and refusing to marry). They both work for an ad-agency and participate in a program to switch lives for a month. When things get screwed up in London and Lloyd gets fired, the two join forces on the phone to get his job back. Follow their journey as they find love.

I thought this book was witty and interesting to read, hilarious at some points that my stomach ached. Read it, it's really good.

Cute Summer Read

Reader reviewed by Ria

Suze, who works in a London ad agency and Lloyd, who works for the same company in NYC, trade jobs for the summer. Suze has had bad luck in the past with guys and Lloyd is looking to settle down with his girlfriend. But when Suze discovers that there are people in NYC trying to have Lloyd fired, she starts communicating with him. Together, they find a way to save him before it's too late and along the way, they start to fall in love, but they don't know if they can do anything about it until they meet.

I thought that this book was really cute. I really liked the romance and suspense in this book. It was a great chick-lit book and it's great for the summer!
