Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t sell, and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan. Enter the star editor, MacDermott Ellis: Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author—now as forgotten as last year’s bestsellers and his nephew Nick: Tall, gorgeous, sweet, single, and ready to sweep Kate off her feet. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions. As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week,” she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more sex, more celebrities, and more scandal. Welcome to the world of publishing. The ego has landed.

I'm not going to rate this book because I'm not sure I gave it a fair chance. I quit at 25%. I expected more of a story and less info dumping. There's just too much telling and monologue for my taste buds, and not enough action, showing, or characterization. The narration creates a kind of disgruntl...

I gave this a B- at All About Romance, so 3.5 stars here.When I saw the blurb for this self-published novel, I'll admit it caught my eye. Christina George is, per the author's description, the pseudonym of someone who has worked 20+ years in the publishing industry and the book promises one author's...
