Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot.

Hero: Mitch Hertzog
Heroine: Kate MacKenzie
Grade: B-
Meet Kate Mackenzie. She:

  • works for the T.O.D. (short for TyrannicalOffice Despot, also known as Amy Jenkins,Director of the Human Resources Divisionat the New York Journal)

  • is sleeping on the couch because herboyfriend of ten years refuses to commit
    can't find an affordable studio apartmentanywhere in New York City
    thinks things can't get any worse.

    • They can. Because:

  • the T.O.D. is making her fire the most popularemployee in the paper's senior staff dining room that employee is now suing Kate for wrongfultermination, and now Kate has to give a deposition in front ofMitch 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 findin a legal arbitration is love. But that's the kind of thing that canhappen when ... Boy Meets Girl.

    Okay, I've done it again.

    I read an entire book of about 300+ pages in one sitting. Either I'm getting really lazy or the books I'm reading are really capturing my attention. And what a joyful discovery I made when I picked up Meg Cabot's Boy Meets Girl last night and began reading, only to find out that this book takes place AFTER the last MC book that I read, The Boy Next Door. It's actually about one of Meg Fuller's co workers, Kate MacKenzie who moved to New York from Kentucky with her soon to be Rock Star Boyfriend, who won't commit to her and the hero of the book is Mitch Hertzog, who's actually John Trent's sister in law, Stacy's little brother. Remember the hormonal sister in law from the numerous emails from John to his brother Jason's wife? Well, it's her little brother, Mitch's story and I've got to say that Mitch is just adorable.

    As much as I loved this little quirky little story about Kate and Mitch Hertzog, told through the hilarious IM's between Kate and her best friend, Jen Sadler and numerous emails from Mitch and every single member of his family, I've got to say that I enjoyed and loved The Boy Next Door a little more. I mean, don't get me wrong Boy Meets Girl was a great, fun and quick read, but it lacked the character development or relationship development, I should say that John Trent and Melissa Fuller had in The Boy Next Door. Mitch and Kate are a great match and Kate is your usual, good girl next door who cares about everyone and Mitch is the perfect guy in which he's a tough guy lawyer who wears cartoon character ties that his nieces give him (his nieces being Brittany and Hailey, the same nieces that email John Trent in The Boy Next Door, hehe), he volunteers at the Y to play wheelchair basketball with the paraplegic (sp?) and he's really a public defender who works for those that can't afford the big time fees of a big shot lawyer and he's a really good lawyer as well, he goes to whatever lengths possible to fight for his clients, to make sure that the good guys always win. He's really a dreamboat and seriously? If it was possible to fall in love with a guy through emails, I'd be in total love with Mitch Hertzog, despite having that impossibly annoying last name.

    You see, Mitch's brother, Stuart Hertzog is the biggest ass in the whole world, and Mitch knows it. So when he has his fiance', Amy Jenkins (you'll remember this heiffer from TBND, she's the HR Director for the New York Journal and Kate's boss) fire the food cart lady, who is nothing but a sweet old lady because she refused to serve Stuart any key lime pie, they're all in for a surprise when Mrs. Lopez sues them for breach of contract. Kate is drawn into all of this because she's the one that was put to the task of actually firing Mrs. Lopez and she's thrown for a loop when Amy tries to frame her with all kinds of nonsense, when Kate is honest and forthcoming with any kind of information that paints the NY Journal is a bad light, Amy fires her and thats when all the fun begins.

    Mitch is besides himself because it was his fault that Kate got fired so he decides that he's goign to go for his future sister in law's throat, he's goign to bring her down and she was goign to be sorry that she messed with Mitch and Kate.

    Oh gosh, the things that happen throughout the book, the jealousy Mitch shows for Kate and her many "boyfriends" is so cute and the things he does for Kate is uber cute and I was totally smitten throughout the entire book with him.

    The emails between Mitch's family and Kate and Jen had me cracking up until about midnight this morning, right up until I closed the book. Although, the ending was abrupt, I enjoyed the rest of the book to let that get to me. There were a few things that got on my nerves like Kate's ability to whine about the way her life is and her constant calling herself a loser was a bit much, but not so much that I didn't enjoy the story. It was a good story and I enjoyed it very much, I think you guys will too.

    But I'm warning you now, if you're expecting some deep dialogue, an intense storyline, this isn't the book for you. This book is very light, entertaining and funny...that's all there is to it.

    I give this book a low B because it was good but not OMGOSH great!
