After she loses her engagement ring and her phone is stolen during a hotel fire drill, Poppy Wyatt, discovering an abandoned phone in a trash can, crashes into the life of the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton, when she uses his phone to make her wedding preparations. I 've lost it. The only thing in the world I wasn't supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It has been in Magnus's family for three generations. And now the very same day his parents are coming, I've lost it. The very same day! Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive! Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her "happily ever after" begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn't agree. He wants his phone back and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life. What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other's lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

Great romance novel! I loved the format of the book as well as the plot. Readers will fall in love with the characters as the characters fall in love with each other.

This was a fun read that delivered on humor and romance. The writing comes across pretty light weight and silly, especially after some more recent literary reads. But that's just this genre, and the author works well within it, creating likable characters and good baddies. Came together really well!

A good light read, from an author who knows how to write. It's good that she's written novels other than the Shopaholic series (which are equally well-written but which annoy me for the continued stupidity of the main character).

You'll enjoy Poppy's misadventures when she loses her cellphone.This humorous, romantic, comtemporary beach read is full of British phrases and culture, adding charm to the story. Poppy Wyatt loses a family heirloom engagement ring followed by having her cell phone stolen. Poppy discovers an abandoned phone in a trash can and the madness begins with Sam Roxto crashing into her life trying to get back his phone.

In yet another funny romance novel, Shopaholic author Sophie Kinsella spins a riveting tale about finding true love. Full of humor and plot twists, I could not put this book down.

I've got your number was a hilarious book. The main character, Poppy has just lost her engagement ring. And it just so happens to be a ring that’s been in her soon to be husband family for years. There's one thing she knows for sure: she needs to get her ring back. After having their cell phone stolen, Poppy almost loses hope until she sees a phone in the garbage. A perfectly good phone that works and everything- with a customized single ladies ring tone on it. Poppy sees this phone as a replacement but for some reason the man who owns the phone- Sam isn't to thrilled about it. It was so fun seeing Sam and Poppy become friends, with their opposite personalities and constantly opposing ideas. This is definitely one of my favourtite Sophia Kinsella's books, it had just the right about of seriousness and the sub plots were interesting, it was almost like a mystery novel. I really enjoyed reading the different characters, they were all so different from the warm hearted Ruby to the funny brother in law. More than anything, I loved Poppy I think any one can relate to her in one way or another and I really wanted her happy ending. Overall, I've got your number is a great read with memorable characters and lots of funny twists. “I don't speak Japanese, I don't know anything about Japanese business or Japanese culture. Apart from sushi. But I can't exactly go up to him and say "Sushi!" out of the blue. It would be like going up to a top American businessman and saying, "T-bone steak!"

Another fun read from Sophie Kinsella! The mobile phone takes on a very important role in this book, almost with its own personality. Miscommunication and inappropriate communication are both explored (for lots of laughs), and the characters develop in meaningful ways as they learn from each other. Not entirely predictable. Well done!

Patron reviews from the Adult Summer Game: "LOL! This is the best way to describe this comedic novel. Can't even imagine losing a wedding ring but she describes it well."

"This is an amusing and entertaining story! I recommend this book if you are a Shopaholic fan."

The story opens with a panicked Poppy Wyatt who has lost her engagement ring, a valuable emerald ring that is a heirloom of her fiancé’s family. To make matters worse, her phone is stolen as she is looking for her ring, rendering her unavailable to be contacted. Luckily, she subsequently finds a cell phone in a trash bin and gives her new number to friends and family. There are strings attached though. As it turns out, the phone is property of a company called White Globe Consulting. Between convincing the brusque businessman Sam Roxton to let her keep the phone, pretending that she has not lost the ring, and impressing her in-laws to be, Poppy has her hands full. Furthermore, using the phone means that she receives many of the company’s emails and soon gets entangled in Sam’s personal life as well a business scandal. As her wedding day draws closer, Poppy begins to find herself questioning her choice.

Coarse Language: There are a lot of f-bombs throughout the book as well as God's name taken in vain. Some d*mn and s*it.
