Discover the new Wattpad sensation! Twenty-something Amber is fresh out of university with a degree she has no clue what to do with... so she temps in order to earn enough money to cover the cost of living the good life in London. While scrounging free wine from a wacky modern art gallery (her favourite life-hack) she looks at the ‘art’ and thinks ‘if they can do it, why not me?’. Enter a drop-dead gorgeous gallery promoter and a bunch of unlikely friends, including her housemate Egg (short for Egbert), to help – and hinder – her crazy idea to unleash spray painted bananas across the capital. Laugh out loud with this fun romantic comedy and follow Amber as she literally spray paints the town red – and blue – and yellow – and pink... .
“The Temp” by Emily Benet was a bit of a disappointment for me. I was looking for something fun and light, but I found that this story just wasn’t cutting it. It felt really boring. I also had a hard time getting into the story because it seemed so very slow.
Amber is a college graduate and has been working temp agency jobs until she figures out what she would like to do with the rest of her life. Amber ends up lying to this guy that asks her out on a date which makes everything interesting. It seemed like Amber just wanted to continue making her life complicated.
There were a few funny parts to the book but all in all I just wasn’t in to it. I feel like this is one of those not you its me situations. A lot of people seemed to have loved this book.
