For years, Hers magazine has been a fixture on newsstands–relatable, reliable, and ever-so-slightly frumpy. But with sales slumping, Hers’ editor-in-chief soon finds a pink slip in her inbox. And her ruthless, blisteringly high-heeled replacement may not be finished cleaning house yet.  .  .

Leah Brenner suspects she won’t be on the payroll much longer either. A telecommuting, breast milk-pumping mom of three doesn’t mesh with her new boss Mimi’s vision of a sleeker, younger-skewing Hers. Not content with nabbing Leah’s office, Mimi’s protégée, Victoria, is itching to take over Leah’s duties too–and she’s not alone. As the summer rolls out, and staffers are asked to give up even their sexiest secrets to save the brand, everyone at Hers–the sycophantic new assistant;the photo editor who’s sleeping with her boss;the Ivy League intern with oversized aspirations–will fight to keep her career, and some shred of dignity, intact. 

My Thoughts:

I don’t have a ton to say about Pretty in Ink.  It was a quick witty read.  There was a balance of sadness and let down when Leah realizes that she is going to have to really fight to keep her job as everyone around her is losing theirs.  It makes her really figure out what is important and how to survive in the crazy world she has found herself in.  This have always worked like a well oiled machine and now everything is up for grabs.  It was a decent read but not a book that I would re-read.  I would read this if you enjoy a fun loving read.
