I HAVE BEEN BLESSED!!!
Thank you so much, Berkley Books, for my ARC. You are always so good to me. I have been excited about this one for a while!!!
Berkley's FIRST QUEER FEMALE ROMANCE !!!
Yeah, I probably went too far on that, but I am beyond for this one.
I've been loving Berkley Romance lately.
They're crushing it.
I am obsessed with this book, and I cannot wait for it to come out so I can buy a copy.
I'm glad to see ...more
So wonderful, wholesome, lighthearted. It had some good discussions on sexual assault in Hollywood, but other than that this a sweet book was about two adorable dorks who dance around each other with their feelings. It was just what I needed!
FIRST OF ALL: I loved it.
SECOND OF ALL: I truly loved it.
Personal Assistant Emma is devoted professionally to screenwriter and former child actress, Jo. Jo is about to be announced as the new writer for a James Bond-esque film series and all anyone can talk about is how a woman can't write an established action star. In order to not be forced to answer questions all night at the SAG Awards, Jo takes Emma with her and ...more
1. Loved the chemistry between Jo and Emma
2. Loved the way Wilsner handled the power imbalance
3. The Cassandra project was topical AF
4. I just loved it!
Only thing was I was practically ready to throw my kindle towards the end waiting for these women finally get down to business. I am just too impatient for slow burns but I so enjoyed their journey and watching them fall in love.
*I received an ARC from netgalley in exchange for a fair review*
I also loved how serious topics were handled by Wilsner. ...more
This is a story about learning to speak up for yourself and going after what you want. At any age. I hope we’ll get to see Emma and Jo again in future books.
there were a few contributing factors to the lower rating, including incorrect social media marketing comparing this to breaking character (though i didn’t like the latter, so i’m glad this wasn’t the same), labelling it a fake dating romance, my dislike for very large age gaps, and incredibly slow-burn romance. i’m aware everyone else loves books where the couple barely interact until the final chapter, or some find charm in romances between ...more
Meryl Wilsner's debut novel is stunning! I've never read a full length novel featuring two women as love interests, until now. If this is what I've been missing out on, I'm in for a treat!
Emma and Jo are delightful. Watching them slowly fall in love was wonderful. Emma is bubbly and hard working, she's long admired Jo her boss, but has always kept things professional. I could totally relate to and understand her insecurity about her career. Jo has been in the industry for decades and ...more
When Jo Jones is seen laughing with her assistant at the SAG Awards, rumors that they are dating spread, but Jo hasn't publicly commented on her love life in 30 years and she's not about to start now. Curiously, as they deal with the fallout, Emma and Jo begin to realize their feelings aren't quite so platonic.
Something to Talk About is a very sweet and slow burning romance. ...more
Let’s start with the positive. The author is a good writer. What you read from the blurb is actually how the story goes. Most blurbs are spoilerish, but the theme behind STTA was must right.
I really enjoyed both characters in different ways. Everyone should have an Emma as an assistant and Jo as a boss.
Although as I mention above is good, and usually I don’t mind a slow ...more
Consent was also a big thing - Jo made sure ...more
