    The Corset Diaries de Katie MacAlister (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: The Corset Diaries is also a funny look at the workings of a reality series - in this case a series much like the PBS historical re-enactments. With cameras everywhere, etiquette to be followed at all times, not to mention the restrictive costumes, the path to a real duke is far from smooth, and I enjoyed every hilarious moment.… (més)

Richard Wells, a driven advertising executive, has the perfect campaign - one that will make his dream of launching his own agency come true: a reality dating show sponsored by (what else) a mouthwash company. The former soap opera star is going to choose one of fifteen beauties to be his bride, but when one of the girls has a boob job go wrong, everything looks like it's falling to pieces...

So Bridget Connor, Richard's unassuming assistant is forced into the spotlight. Richard never thinks she'll make it through the first cut, but when the heartthrob seems to be show a lot of interest in his assistant, he starts to think that maybe he's been missing out...

A funny (and cute) story about a boss/secretary crush that unfolds into something deeper. I loved the over-the-top zany situations that the characters had to deal with -very TV/movie romantic comedy- and I enjoyed the fact that despite all of that the emotions rang true. That and the sex is H-O-T, HOT.

The characters are all pretty well soap-opera stereotypes...we have the scheming ambitious bitch, the sweet-but-dumb beauty, the Cinderella figure, the secret gay love affair... but in a novel about soap operas and reality TV it mostly works (although I do wish the best friend had been a little brighter; I hate to see things play into the beautiful dumb actress stereotype). Some of the underlying emotional issues don't really get worked out, but that comes with the limited format.

Definitely worth reading as long as one accepts that it comes with Harlequin limitations - there's only so much an author can do in 200 pages. ( )
