Public Relations by Katie Heaney & Arianna Rebolini….ARC Review

Public Relations is out TODAY!



Young PR star Rose Reed is thrown into the big leagues when her boss leaves town the day of the firm’s meeting with Archie Fox, a young, hot, internationally famous British singer-songwriter. The meeting is going badly until Rose suggests a staged romance with up-and-coming, young indie star Raya. He’ll do it, but only if Rose becomes his publicist.

As the faux-mance begins to rehabilitate Archie’s faltering career, Rose finds his herself having unexpected, inconvenient and definitely unprofessional feelings for the crooner. But do late night texts and impromptu burrito binges mean he feels the same? In the end, Rose will have to decide whether to let her fantasy crush go, or to risk her reputation to be with the charming, handsome, scoundrel-y but sweet pop star she’s grown to love.

My Review:

Working in the social media world, I have to say how much I loved this book.  I got a lot of the behind the scenes things Rose is dealing with and I totally felt a part of the story.  Rose is a fun character with wit and determination.  She’s working her way up in the dog-eat-dog PR world in NYC and finally gets her chance to shine when she ends up pulling the strings in music heart-throb of the minute Archie’s love life.  That’s when the real fun begins.  In pulling those strings, Rose and Archie end up spending more and more time together which of course leads to a slow build romance between the two.  I loved that slow build vibe by the way.  It was a refreshing change of pace for me.  The whole story line leads to an ending I adored.  I have to say, I would LOVE to see this book made into a movie one day!

I also have to give a shout out to Rose’s co-worker and friend, Harper.  I adore that woman!  ADORE! She had me laughing out loud more times than I can count.  If there’s a real life Harper out there, I need you in my life.

If you’re looking for a fun, fresh, sweet and sassy read, this is a book for you.

Thank you, Ms. Heaney and Ms. Rebolini, for a fab read! (Oh, and I have been a HUGE Buzzfeed fan for, like, years!)
