    One thought on “As Long As She Needs Me”

    1. really a charming book, but light -- like chinese food -- so maybe i won't remember it in an hour or so. the author is witty and gifted in coining a turn of phrase; maybe too gifted, because sometimes the story is derailed by an approaching-twee metaphor or almost precious analogy that might have been better tucked into the dialogue of another book. ironically, in a book about a writer made better by an editorial soulmate, this book could have used a little judicious editing. i hope he writes mo [...]

    2. This frothy and frolicsome first novel is a "musical comedy without the music," in P.G. Wodehouse's phrase. Oliver Campbell, a tall, gawky but handsome former English major, is trapped in the job of executive editorial assistant at Dawn Books. Lauren LaRose, a beautiful but burned-out journalist, pens "The Aisle of White," a popular monthly magazine column devoted to trendy theme weddings. At the nuptials of Oliver's college roommate, Oliver and Lauren are seated together at the Butt Table (the [...]

    3. As I type this, I am looking thoughtfully at my partner-in-crime, who brought this book into the house. You may take the raised eyebrows as a given. I was seriously hard pressed to finish this, because I have a very low tolerance for OMG YOU'RE 30 YOU WILL BE SMOTHERED BY CATS AND YOUR BODY FOUND UNDER A PILE OF EMPTY LEAN CUISINE BOXES IF YOU DO NOT FIND A MATE NOW NOW NOW, even when delivered (or mocked?) by a male protagonist and a male author. For me the most interesting part of this book wa [...]

    4. **2.5 starsI wanted to like this one so much more -- it's the kind of catchy, "frothy" setup that makes for amazing movies and good indulgent reading, made more intriguing by being from a male POV. I *wanted* to love it Instead I mostly like it -- it's got its funny moments, to be sure, and the ending is what I wanted -- but It's too frothy. It's too fast. The writing is sometimes rather sloppy (ironically, considering the "hero" is an editor). It's cute enough, but not enough. Or maybe I was [...]

    5. This book kept reminding me of The Devil Wears Prada… only this time the assistant to the Bitchy Boss is a man… Oscar is a 30+ single man who is at the beck and call of Dawn, the head of Dawn Books. In having to plan Dawn’s secret marriage, Oscar, actually winds up planning his own. He has fallen in love with Lauren, the writer of a Wedding Column for a New York paper. It’s all mis-cues and misunderstandings. Basically brainless

    6. A charming romantic comedy starring a guy I would really like. Despite being tall, attractive, smart, and nice, Oscar isn't an alpha--instead he's the invisible assistant to a Devil-Wears-Prada-style publisher. He's stuck planning the boss-lady's wedding (and wondering how he let his life take this lame path), when he meets the woman of his own dreams.

    7. Not really a good book, I was lost during most of the book and toward the end skipped pages because it didn't matter to the outcome of the book. The conversation part of the book was not well written and I was lost most of the time. It could have been better but the ending was sweet.

    8. Chick-lit meets "Ugly Betty", with appearances by bros, ISOs and a token non-hetero - written by a man. I have no idea why this even exists, but if it happens to be your thing, it's actually some decent writing (though our continuing friendship is absolutely due some scrutiny).

    9. This book was witty and entertaining throughout. Weinstock really can nail personalities! Nice, light and fun.

    10. I couldn't get into this one. I tried but the pov is from the narrator and it trips up the story line. I stopped reading it. I'm sure its good it seems a lot like the proposal the movie. I moved on

    11. Unusual because it's a love story told by a guy, and even though it differs a bit, it's essentially a romantic comedy. Male assistant plans female boss' wedding but ends up getting married himself.
