'The kind of Hollywood ending that will make you believe in soul mates' Lyssa Kay Adams, author of The Bromance Book Club
A show runner and her assistant give the world something to talk about when they accidentally fuel a ridiculous rumour.
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 realise the rumour might not be so off base after all . . . but is acting on the spark between them worth fanning the gossip flames?
Everyone's talking about Meryl Wilsner. . .

'An extremely fun, supremely readable slow-burn romance that had me yelling, JUST KISS ALREADY!' . . . Emma and Jo's love story is both irresistible and a total breath of fresh air' Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for Tom Hanks

'An unputdownable slow-burn romance with well-drawn and incredibly real characters. Wilsner does an amazing job exploring a Hollywood love story' Library Journal (starred review)
'A sparkling debut with vibrant characters, a compelling Hollywood studio setting, and a sweet slow-burn romance' Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Wilsner's sparkling debut offers a glimpse at the truth behind the tabloid headlines. When child star turned showrunner Jo Jones takes her assistant Emma Kaplan to the SAG awards to be her buffer from the press, the paparazzi capture them sharing a genuine smile, and speculation about the nature of their relationship flies. While Emma wants to dispel the rumors that she's sleeping with her boss, Jo has a policy of never publicly commenting on her love life and argues that it would only fan the flames if she were to break her silence now. They grow closer during the months of "no comment" that follow, leading both Emma and Jo to realize that maybe the tabloids got something right this time. Their romance burns tantalizingly slowly as they navigate their professional relationship and budding feelings; Wilsner makes sure the reader knows both women intimately before allowing them to be intimate with one another, making the eventual payoff that much more rewarding. The supporting cast among whom Emma's sister, Avery, especially shines adds depth and dimension to this charming rom-com. This is a gem.
