I’ve Got Your Number

by Sophie Kinsella

“When you read my texts, you saw a curt, miserable git. And you told me so. Maybe you’re right. But you know what I saw when I read yours?”
“No. And I don’t want to know.”
“I saw a girl who races to help others but doesn’t help herself. And right now you need to help yourself. No one should walk up the aisle feeling inferior
or in a different league or trying to be something they’re not.”

This was a cute book with a likable heroine, despite her tendency to let people to run roughshod over her. Unfortunately the whole book is founded on a false premise. If you lose your phone, you do not ever lose your number, so the whole phone sharing thing was just dumb and unnecessary. It did help that at halfway through the book, Sam, the hero, told her some much needed home truths about her inferiority complex, neediness, and fear of not being liked. He nailed it when he needled her, “Please Like Me! Please Like me!”. Good for him, she needed that wake-up call.**spoiler**

I was very disappointed in Poppy when she went back to Magnus after he cheated on her(with that horror of a wedding planner, no less!). She did come to her senses, albeit not until standing in front of the altar. I liked the arc his parents took, from hateful to likable, when Poppy learned the truth.**end spoiler**

Enjoyed the sub-plot of the corporate intrigue at Sam’s company. Unfortunately, it was not apparent enough for me, that Poppy developed a backbone and sufficiently became a stronger more sensible person.**4 out of 5 stars**
