Genre: Women’s Fiction

This was a fun and quick read about sexism with a freaky Friday twist.

Delia was laid off three months ago from her Wall Street job and now she’s struggling to find another gig. Hitting roadblock after roadblock in a male dominated industry, she makes a wish that she could become a man. When she wakes up the next day, her wish has come true. A wild and unlikely twist in events gives her (now him!) the opportunity of a lifetime when she overhears that the leading financial firm in NYC will lose their next big pitch. In a position to save the day and with the newfound confidence of being a man, Delia decided to take things into her own hands and write her own fate.

This book was definitely cute and I liked the friends to lovers romance element. The currents of sexism woven throughout added a more serious tone to the novel but overall, Aksel was able to keep it fun and light.

Putting the freaky Friday twist aside, this was still a pretty unbelievable storyline but if you’re able to put the believability factors aside, it’s definitely enjoyable. I was also a little put off by the excessive and often immature male anatomy comments but ultimately I think it added an element of humor to the story.

Thank you to Berkley and NetGalley for a copy of this novel.
