Definitely a book to add to your library!
I loved this book. It's witty, charming and fun. It's written by two authors from multiple points of view. The two main characters are Sam, a celebrity journalist, who's life isn't as together as it would appear. Her character is unique, if flawed and sometimes selfish, but you just can't help but love her, because she really does have a good heart. The other main character is Tom, a gay, life-style editor at another magazine. His character is pretty much the opposite of Sam, but that's part of what makes their friendship so strong. You really get to see how these characters evolve, for the better, through the book. I also liked that the characters don't always think the nicest things about their friends, which we all do, but you rarely see in books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

fine chick lit tale
Sam Leighton works for Star Face magazine interviewing Hollywood stars. Her best friend Tom Sanders edits the lifestyle column for Profit magazine. Sam is assigned to learn whether Gibson had hair plugs, but instead gets in trouble because rumors fly that she lost her reporting impartiality by becoming too close with Russell Crowe. Tom feels bad for his pal so he takes her out on a martini lunch to drown her sorrows. A few drinks later, Tom proposes that they combine their expertise and begin their own magazine. Thus Bite is created as an entertainment magazine that emphasizes Hollywood sex and fun in that order. Bringing other artistic but ennui pals into the fold, Bite begins to take shape in spite of the eccentricity and sexual inclinations of the staff until treachery threatens to destroy the project before the first issue is published. This is a biting satirical look at the glamour magazine world. The story line is amusing as the lead duo struggles with leading the publication rather than segments. The support cast is stereotypical, but mostly as a means of adding humor to the lighthearted romp. Fans of chick lit tales will appreciate this insider back room look at the goings on of a magazine trying to release its first edition in a competitive back biting world.

I managed to get an advanced copy of this book and I absolutely loved it!!! I am a huge reader and this is just the book I have been waiting for, it is intelligent, witty, sexy and cynical in all the right ways. There is something in it for everyone. My only criticism is that it wasn't longer and I can't wait for the next book by C. J. ToshWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
