From the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wayward SonFangirl, Carry On, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about an office romance that blossoms one email at a time....

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. He can't help being entertained, and captivated, by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he even say...?

    Mmkkk I don’t know what kind of Steele/titanium guts this girl has but I’m pretty sure if some really big buff dude just left a note on my desk and was like “ hey, by the way I read your emails and I think I’m in love with you....Sorry bout it..” I wouldn’t be like “ OH THATS HOT” I’d be like dad there’s a creepy guy stalking me, go get your belt and kabob skewer.” Despite this small inconvenience I did in fact enjoy the book, I liked that there wasn’t as much cheesiness to it like other romcom books, I mean eww like cheesy makes me wheezy.
  • A very different novel

    Found this book very disjointed & difficult to really get into. Yet, I persevered & it had just enough to keep me me from giving in to the urge to quit & move on to another book.

    I bought this book because of the holiday more in the description. It was even better than I could have hoped. Charming, sweet, moving, and best of all, really funny. I probably looked like a loon laughing out loud and reading lines out loud to no one. She’s brilliant and I wish there was a sequel.

    First time reading this author. The fact that it’s a first novel was a surprise. Reviewers described it as a funny book. I found it a special and refreshingly different story that I was sorry to finish. Loved the characters and the fact they were so easy to identify with. Kudos to this author !
  • A "Grabs You and You Never Want To Let Go" kind of book.

    I always browse the free section on iBooks and usually there are some entertaining books available but this one...this one doesn't belong in the free section. This one belongs in the full priced paid section and my cheap self would absolutely buy it. Amazing character development, full of laugh out loud moments, and you end the book feeling happy but depressed because you will miss the characters so much. 😜Highly recommend!
