Hilarity at its best! A fantastic depiction of a typical corporate work environment, with all the trimmings! Working corporate jobs for over 15 years, I very much related to Instantly! How Quickly I Realized I HATE My Job. It felt like Nia and Harper, the two successful professionals, were discussing my corporation. Throughout the entire book, I was chuckling and nodding. This book sent a very clear message on how we are captured by our corporate jobs via our fears, submissions and decisions. Thought provoking, it made me think all I need is a plan and courage! Kudos to the author, Shameeka Ayers for an inspiring delightful and witty book!

However you plan to spend your summer... this book should be on the list. Shameeka Ayers takes the reader on a joyride not soon forgotten. Every lounge on the beach, at poolside, on the deck, on stay cation... Should include a copy of "Instantly!" Keep one on the coffee table and share copies with friends. Nia and Harper are the perfect combination of sass, wisdom and straight comedy! Instantly! is the theme park of novellas!

Instantly! How Quickly I Realized I HATE My Job

I just finished reading "Instantly! How Quickly I Realized I HATE My Job" by Shameeka Ayers and could identify with the office politics immediately! Nia and Harper's discussions of the goings on at the Taking Chances! offices will have you nodding your head in your cubicle, while screaming "YES-Exactly"! Whether you are currently in the job you hate, just left a job you hate or are heading into that job, but don't know it yet, you need to read this book! Cheers to Ms. Ayers~ I cannot wait to read more from that creative mind of yours!

Although I have highlighted a few passages in this book as they pertained to my employment with THEM, I still felt the book could have gone further. I never "got" when the Author said "Instantly,(get it) after a few chapters and at the end of the book. As a result, I'm feeling a little "slow" or the "is it just me syndrome".

I'm wondering why the reader is kept hanging in the end...what happens to Nia and her husband? Am I to assume she continued her employment at Taking Chances? Now remember, I'm a little slow...and don't like to assume anything.

I think I wanted this book to solidify me and my current crossroads. I was looking for answers and in reading this book in the beginning, I believed that I would have them. Then again, I thought I would be inspired at how the Author decided to leave corporate America and pursue her dreams. After all, I follow her on Pinterest. But I got none of that and I'm a little upset, especially after spending $10 bucks and change.

Clearly a good story development opportunity is missing here. ***le sigh***

Shameeka Ayers has amazing wit and savvy. This book makes you wonder if the grass on the other side is greener and why you need to find a BFF at work until you can find out for yourself!

I follow her on facebook and her blog.
Loved Nia in the book!

She is on her way to write another.
I was looking for more but with a Novella, this is what we get.
I know part two will give us more!

Thanks Ms. Ayers......

I ran out of "pages" before I was ready to quit reading! I INSTANTLY downloaded "Instantly! How Quickly I Realized I Hate My Job" as soon as I found out that it was finally available on Kindle. Ms. Ayers draws her readers in with edgy text messaging dialogue and characters that were composites of people we all know. I devoured the book in two sessions! I don't know why Ms. Ayers stopped at a "novella," as she calls it--unless she is planning sequels. She certainly leaves her readers wanting more. I am waiting for Volume 2! I hope it's in the works! Fun, light read! (I actually read it on Kindle on my iPhone!)
