Casey Pendergast works for the man, but its not her true passion. At 28, she makes a very good living and as all the material things she wants. She finds herself in a few moral dilemma’s as her PR company aims to use artists to promote products they wouldn’t normally use: in essence selling out. She herself selling out as she is essentially doing the same thing. There is a strong lesson here on the power of social media.

I really wanted to like this book as there were some really good messages outlined throughout the story; it just wasn’t cohesive. After reading the first few chapters I almost shelved it as a DNF, but in came Ben Dickinson and I was like “hey, this chemistry is well written just keep going.” Parts of this book are good, some are not.

I will say I did not like The Devil Wears Prada book, but loved the movie (when does anyone ever say that – that the movie is better than the book – right?!) I think this story may be a better fit for a screenplay. It has potential.

I do need to note: great cover design. It is certainly eye catching.

I received an arc of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
