Yes, we are the city that loves money, hot careers, and hard to get into restaurants but we do have a heart.

Aug 04, Love Fool rated it it was ok. Luckily I borrowed this from the library and boondes actually squander any of my hard-earned money on it.
This book was like reading an episode of Bushndll and the City, except that the characters are less fun, more emotionally messed up and often married. On top of that, the writing is bushnel. I actually threw it across the room after reading it because I was so disgusted.
