Seeking The Smart One

Twenty-four-year-old Jen Reid had her life in good shape: an okay job, a tiny-cute Seattle apartment, and a great boyfriend almost ready to get serious. In a flash it all came apart. Single, unemployed, and holding an eviction notice, who has time to remember trying out for a reality show? Then the call comes, and Jen sees her chance to start over—by spending her summer on national TV.

Luckily The Fishbowl is all about puzzles and games, the kind of thing Jen would love even if she wasn’t desperate. The cast checks all the boxes: cheerful, quirky Birdie speaks in hashtags; vicious Ariana knows just how to pout for the cameras; and corn-fed “J-dawg” plays the cartoon villain of the house. Then there’s Justin, the green-eyed law student who always seems a breath away from kissing her. Is their attraction real, or a trick to get him closer to the $250,000 grand prize? Romance or showmance, suddenly Jen has a lot more to lose than a summer . . .

Sexy, engaging read! (Wednesday, March 8, 2017)
Reviewer: Tabby Vos

This was fantastically written with an eye towards a really interesting genre (reality shows).... you're immediately engaged with the narrator, and with her interpersonal struggles/successes. The sexy nerd protagonist is immediately likable and relatable,... you really root for her in the game (and in her love life) the whole way through. Villains are villainous, love interests are lovable... but the book remains fun and light. I really liked the openings to each chapter - they're fun and set the tone for what you're about to read. This was a fun read and I look forward to more great books from Laura Heffernan in the future! Note: I received a free book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Surprising page-turner! (Wednesday, March 8, 2017)

Romance is not my usual genre, nor do I watch many reality shows, but I was looking for a lighter read as an escape. This book hit the spot! It took me a couple of tries before I got hooked, but then I would look forward to anytime I had free for reading, and it became a page-turner. I was surprised how quickly it was over--I'm not generally a fast reader! Overall it was a very fun and light read, and when it ended I couldn't wait to find out what happens next! Thankfully, I hear there will be more books from Ms. Heffernan, so I'll be able to satisfy my curiosity soon! Yay!

Note: I received a free advance copy of this book.
