“Dude,” Avery said. “She wants to wife you.”
Jo, a longtime Hollywood hustler, decides to bring her assistant, Emma, on one of her various red carpet events.
Surrounded by photographers, Jo makes Emma laugh and the intimacy of that perceived moment sends the press in a tizzy.
“Ms. Jones, you do not need any more bad press at this moment,” Amir said, “A short statement would be an easy fix.”
Jo absolutely refuses to comment on the event, and her silence is all the fuel the press needs.
Little does Jo know, Emma has had a crush on her boss for years.
She’s never even considered acting on it but now that Emma’s time as Jo’s assistant is coming to the close…Emma can’t help but wonder…what if?
“Do you think maybe the rumors about you two might have a point? One that maybe you didn’t realize before?”
This ended up being SUPER cute and an instant hit for me.
I loved the quiet dynamic between Jo and Emma.
This is a relationship where the actions speak louder than words and there were so many subtle moments that just had me going ‘SQUEEE.’
Jo was such a powerhouse and she hid her emotions really well. Every time she “broke character” it was an instant beeline to my heart.
Emma was so open about herself and truthful – she was the perfect match.
I also was surprisingly invested in the plot.
It was so much fun to watch the two of them navigate the world of scandals as they attempted to bring Jo’s career back on track and kickstart Emma’s.
All in all, this was a fabulous first lesbian romance a la Berkley publishing. I cannot wait to see what this author publishes next!
A huge thank you to the author and Berkley Publishing for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review
