Publisher's Summary

For Alex Davidson, being a celebrity publicist at a Los Angeles PR firm isn't the glamour job she thought it would be. Her love life is zilch, her newest client is an actor fresh out of rehab, and her firm has just been bought out by a rival agency. Suddenly, Alex finds her once-secure job at stake.

Set in the sun-drenched L.A. of celebrity magazine photo shoots, velvet-roped VIP parties, and red carpet events, this is a laugh-out-loud novel of one young woman's attempt to make it in the male-dominated, shark-infested waters of Hollywood. It will satisfy even the most insatiable celebraholic.

Critic Reviews

"Containing all the guilty pleasure of a fluffy beach read, this lighthearted debut novel...offers celebrity-fixated fans a humorous, insider's look at the less than glamorous underbelly of Hollywood....Reader Hamilton perfectly captures the author's sarcastic tone and takes her hip dialogue to another level with her vast cache of accents and attitudes." (Publishers Weekly)

Great find!

I loved this brain candy! It was fast, funny and very modern. I hope the author continues this stream. The behind the scenes look at the Hollywood publicity machine is fun for any readers of today's tabloid gossip!

Valley Girl Voice -- Just Okay

The story was semi-interesting. I'm going to return this book to use my credit on something better. Think devil wears prada written and narrated for a 16 year old.

Good escapist chick lit, bad reader

This book is exactly what you'd expect--light, fluffy, fun. However, the reader is just not very good. This is a book that's all about California, yet the reader mispronounces things like Ago (the restaurant), Marin County, etc. Lame.
