Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York, miserable, and secretly drawn to her powerful, twice-married, media mogul boss, Elena Bartell, who eats failing newspapers for breakfast. As work takes them to Australia, Maddie is goaded into a brief, seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss—where they have to tell the complete truth to each other. It backfires catastrophically.

A lesbian romance about the lies we tell ourselves.

First, I know nothing about fashion. I like it even less. I was skeptical when I bought this but oh so glad I did.This slow burn romance was absolutely incredible. The humor sprinkled throughout the storyline made it a great journey.Stunning.

Maddie Grey is an Aussie crime reporter living in New York, well, just existing in New York. She spends lonely nights writing obituaries. In her spare time she writes a blog where she expresses what she really feels about living in the big city. Elena Bartell is a heartless world-famous media mogul who shows up in Maddie's newspaper ready to tear everything apart although her true love is fashion. Their beginning was a mess and their both characters make them collide constantly. Maddie is not afraid of telling her boss what she thinks and Elena is not used to people talking to her like that. Their love and relationship is impossible, or so it seems, since Elena is married and straight. And then everything changes when they decide to make a bet: not to lie, to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. Both women have strong characters. Maddie is good with people, fight for what she thinks is fair and Elena wants to success in the fashion world no matter what. But underneath that mask she is sensitive and thoughtful. The characters are beautifully described. They are sweet in their own way, endearing, lovable and likable. There are really funny moments, especially where the Duchamps are involved. I have experienced something with this book that I hadn't experienced in a long time, I didn't want it to finish. I am usually a quick reader but I took my time with this one. And I felt sad when it ended. I wanted to know what would happen but, at the same time, I didn't. I have enjoyed this so very much. I wish my English were better for I can't find the words to express better how I feel about this book, the story itself and the characters. But what I do know how to say is that I highly, highly recommend this book. I received an ARC from the publisher for a honest review.
