Weren’t you just thinking that you need a new something to read? We’ve giving away a juicy option today!
The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.
Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.
But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?
Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hatebirds get the storybook Hollywood ending, or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, hilarious story of romance in the modern world.
Can I just say that I love romances where the heroine is also incredibly good at her job? This one sounds delightful.
THE TASK: We’ve got two copies to give away, and I’m going to pick the winners at random, as usual. However! Because I like to make it nice, as usual, I have a little writing prompt for the comments. The scenario: You will wake up tomorrow living in an alternate world where you have an entirely new job, at which you are tremendously talented and extremely successful. For one week, you will get to live the life of a person with this job, and then next week, you’ll wake up to your usual life in our current world. What is your job? (I was going to say “surgeon,” but I actually think I might want to see what it was like to be President for a week.)
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of the publisher.
