Why I Love My Gay Boyfriend by Sabrina Zollo

From Amazon - When Veronica graduated with an MBA and dreams of saving the world, she never knew she would end up a corporate slave to the lipstick gods, in love with her playboy boss and in need of a gay best friend to make her feel fabulous. Straight out of school, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Veronica has her heart set on an honorable job, such as saving starving children. Instead, she accepts a job at Gisele, a global cosmetic empire that seems to mock her every value. Veronica struggles to fit in until she meets Stevie, a gay co-worker, who immediately assumes the role of fashion counselor and fabulousness. Under Stevie's mentorship, Veronica flourishes as a vixen and marketing peon. But for Veronica to truly succeed at Gisele and seduce her boss, she must bequeath her soul to the makeup gods and sacrifice her friends in a ritual known as corporate brainwash. How far does Veronica go before she realizes she is losing everything she once valued, including herself?

Fresh out of college, Veronica didn't have a clue.  She just wanted to find a job, but what she found was in the corporate world of cosmetics.  She has a big crush on her boss, but he doesn't even know she's alive.  But then she meets Steve, and he becomes her best gay friend.  He really helps Veronica find herself and make some goals, and along this journey, it's hilarious.  But Veronica doesn't realize what she will have to give up if she gets what she wants.....unless she gets a quick eye-opener.

Why I Love My Gay Boyfriend has many laugh out loud moments, it's quick paced and I really enjoyed the character dynamics between Veronica and Steve.  The ending was a bit surprising but I can live with it.  Zollo is a gifted writer and I look forward to what she writes next. A humorous chic-lit story that I'll be recommending to my friends!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
