Today’s theme: It’s love at first sight, but it’s complicated! Be sure to check out the posts on Andie J. Christopher & Tracey Livesay too!
Hello! If you missed this wonderful debut – SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT – let me tell you that it’s something you should consider picking up.
Wisner shows remarkable poise and skill in this debut, especially considering its Hollywood setting, paparazzi, rumors, insider mole and #metoo sexual harassment plot facets, plus the pressure women face in any industry simply for being female and human.
I love how Emma is sexually confident and aware to her toes, and how she has a crush on Jo, even while Jo remains quite close-lipped about her own sexuality. Their relationship deepens mainly because Emma is committed to making Jo’s life as smooth as possible, but at some point it becomes personal, and Jo finds herself charmed by Emma’s charming combination of competence, thoughtfulness and youthful insecurity. Jo might also find her attractive, but she’s determined no one, including Emma, will know.
This is a delightful book, with a wholly satisfying slow-burn romance and a pair of women who are engagingly, compellingly perfect for each other, no matter how hard they fight it.

SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
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?
