Will a forty-year-old woman with everything on the line – her high-stakes career, ticking biological clock, bank account – risk it all for an intensely lusty secret romance with the one person who could destroy her comeback, for good? Jenna Jones, former It-girl fashion editor, is broke and desperate for a second chance. When she’s dumped by her longtime fiancé and fired from Darling magazine, she begs for a job from her old arch nemesis, Darcy Vale. The beyond-bitchy publisher of StyleZine.com, Darcy agrees to hire her rival – only because her fashion site needs a jolt from Jenna’s old school cred. But Jenna soon realizes she’s in over her head. She’s working with digital-savvy millennials half her age, has never even “Twittered,” and pretends to still be a Fashion Somebody while living a style lie (she sold her designer wardrobe to afford her sketched-out studio, and now quietly wears Walmart’s finest). Worse? The twenty-two-year-old videographer assigned to shoot her web series is driving her crazy. Wildly sexy with a smile Jenna feels in her thighs, Eric Combs is way off-limits – but almost too delicious too resist. Written by the bestselling author of The Accidental Diva, The Perfect Find is a scandalously sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, utterly quotable saga about star-crossed love and starting over.
Imagine being transported back to 1999 or any “pre-social media” date and that would be the current situation of Jenna Jones newly hired as the advice columnist and to create a fashion web series for StyleZine.com the premier online fashion magazine devoted to street style. Jenna had “dropped out” of the industry for a while because the man she spent the last 20 years with decided he should move on from her and the relationship because he felt they didn’t have the same vision.
Darcy Vale, CEO of Belladonna Media company that owns StyleZine.com and eight other successful women’s online magazines has hired Jenna to triple StyleZine’s readership. I would be remiss if I don’t mention she is a trip with a capital T but was fun to read.
When Jenna attends a book launch thrown by one of her best friends at which this same best friend decides to “set her up” with a man so she can get laid. When that doesn’t work out, Jenna having had too much to drink meets Eric. They meet, kiss and say goodbye and that is where the story begins.
Jenna and Eric reconnect so to speak at StyleZine.com and embark on an affair that is life changing. Without giving any more of the story away, this is a MUST read for those who like a love story with a twist. A HOT love story at that.
I loved this story because the authors writing was so descriptive I felt I was in Jenna’s shoes whenever she was emotional when she was happy when she had decisions to make. There are twists and turns I didn’t see coming and in fact, I had a moment when I was talking to the characters, shaking my head and frowning. This is my first time reading this author’s work, and it will not be the last time. Buy this book!
