Publisher's Summary

A showrunner and her assistant give the world something to talk about when they accidentally fuel a ridiculous rumor in this debut romance.

Hollywood powerhouse Jo is photographed making her assistant Emma laugh on the red carpet, and just like that, the tabloids declare them a couple. The so-called scandal couldn't come at a worse time - threatening Emma's promotion and Jo's new movie. 

As the gossip spreads, it starts to affect all areas of their lives. Paparazzi are following them outside the office, coworkers are treating them differently, and a “source” is feeding information to the media. But their only comment is "no comment". 

With the launch of Jo’s film project fast approaching, the two women begin to spend even more time together, getting along famously. Emma seems to have a sixth sense for knowing what Jo needs. And Jo, known for being aloof and outwardly cold, opens up to Emma in a way neither of them expects. They begin to realize the rumor might not be so off base after all...but is acting on the spark between them worth fanning the gossip flames?

Critic Reviews

Something to Talk About is a delicious slow-burn with the kind of Hollywood ending that will make you believe in soul mates. Emma and Jo’s story of overcoming obstacles to fight for true love will have you swooning and smiling long after you’ve finished the book.” (Lyssa Kay Adams, author of The Bromance Book Club)

“A fresh and fun romance, featuring two witty, intelligent women coming to terms with both their careers and their growing attraction to each other in a glittering Hollywood setting. Meryl Wilsner is a great new voice, whose perspective is both extremely welcome and desperately needed.” (Jen Deluca, author of Well Met)

"[A] supremely readable slow-burn romance that had me yelling, 'JUST KISS ALREADY!' as I flew through the pages." (Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for Tom Hanks)

Excellent slow burn.

First time listening to the work of this author and I must say I loved it. The narrators also added another dimension to this book both were smooth and engaging.

Not My Cup of Tea

This book was average but it took until the final hour for any “romance” to actually take place. I get this is a novel but a good portion of the book was this back and forth that could have taken half the time to get the point across. I also didn’t like the voice of Emma - she sounded like a weak woman most of the time and some of her phrases were something I’d expect from a 16 year old.

So gay, sooo good

If you’re a wlw who’s looking for something real to sink your teeth into, look no further. This story had me gasping, blushing, and jumping up and down. 10/10 would read again.

Something to talk about

Overall it was just okay for me
I thought Emma was acting like a teenager some parts of the book .
One minute she gets jealous that Jo is out with a old friend \ co star the next she thinks Jo is in a romantic relationship with her best friend
I mean Emma is 27 not 16 again the book was just okay sometimes I figured they were better off friends then lovers.

Wow this was slow

I expected this book to be so much more fun than it was. The relationship between the two main characters just took forever to warm up. There were so many rounds of waiting for each of them to figure out their feelings, it just felt like it would never end.

A Slow, slow burn

I had high hopes for this one. I haven't read very many sapphic books prior so I was excited about this romance.

But I felt like I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting for anything to actually happen between the two. I don't even consider it a slow burn because other than a few tiny moments their relationship didn't scream attraction.

Also, I was hoping for some F/F smut. There was one scene that was a small, bit smutty, but not enough. Oh, and placing said scene...

It felt like it was just suddenly wrapped up quickly after being drug out forever.

As for the Narrators, I don't have much to say except the woman voicing Emma sounded amazing when she wasn't talking as if she was Emma.

Great slow burn!

I loved this SLOW burn romance. Jo and Emma develop so much individually and as a pair that when they finally accept their feelings, it’s amazing!! It’s a sweet read, with an amazing sister relationship!! But also heavy. Meryl Wilsner does an exceptional job covering a wide range of difficult topics, from racism and homophobia to sexual harassment. I finished the book in one day!! While it got intense at times; overall, it was a great read!!! I highly recommend it! The narration was fantastic too!! Great job!

Slooooow burn!

This is a slow burn wlw romance. Sweet and slow, age gap, plus, boss and personal assistant in a workplace romance. I enjoyed the book, but I do wish for more romance, more of them being a couple. The narrators did a terrific job.
