Being America’s favorite heiress is a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
Lexington Larrabee has never to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they’re not supposed to crash brand new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Blvd either.
Which is why, on Lexi’s eighteen birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it’s dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.
In a hilarious “comedy of heiress” about family, forgiveness, good intentions, and best of all, second chances, Lexi learns that love can be unconditional, money can be immaterial, and, regardless of age, everyone needs a little saving. And although she might have 52 reasons to hate her father, she only needs one reason to love him.
Famous Lexington Larrabee never had to work a day in her partying life. But all that is about to change when her usually-absent father decides to make a turn in Lexi’s life.
Now if she ever wants to earn her beloved fund of twenty-five million bucks, Lexi has to work one differnet job every week for the next year. Not only does she have to clean house, stables, and dig graves – she has to deal with the annoying and arrogant Luke Carver, the college intern her dad assigned to make she does the jobs right.
I loved the way Jessica Brody started and ended this story. The book had a lot of humor in it. I felt alot of different emotions toward Lexi. When I wasn’t laughing at (or with) her, I’d feel sorry for her and other times annoyed. I really liked her older brother, Cooper and a boy she met at one of her jobs, Rolando, they were both kind and understanding. I have to admit that sometimes Bruce – Richard’s (Lexi’s dad) personal lawyer – got on my nerves.
Jessica Brody’s writing is captivating and flowing making her story alive. With the bursts of humor – this story was just the book I was looking for. I loved how much Lexi’s personality changed towards the end of the book.
Though I’m not amazed by the cover, the story was just awesome. I can’t wait for more by Jessica Brody and it would be kind of cool to read about Lexi’s remaining jobs.
