Synopsis:

“Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.
But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it? Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human?”

  1. Ok, my favorites:

    1) “But when it’s your dream on the line, time takes on an entirely different meaning, and even the most patient person can lose it.“

    2) “But initially, being with someone should feel like the best and most natural thing in the world.”

    I can relate to those too. Especially the second one. 🙂 And this book sounds pretty interesting.
