Veronica Summer is stuck in the dream job from hell.
The spunky New York reporter is offered the network’s morning anchor position, but she doesn’t want it because she’s a night person. Then the network plays a trump card, promising her the evening anchor chair in three years. So the fiery redhead takes the plunge, with the ultimate gig waiting down the road.
Problem is, that road is filled with two am wake-up calls and the only social life she has is one with bats and raccoons. She quickly realizes she’ll never survive the grind and decides the only way out is to get fired by being her snarky self on live television.
And the ratings skyrocket.
Veronica becomes the nation’s It Girl, so the network makes her a celebrity contestant on its most popular nighttime dance competition show, Dance Off. While her journalistic credibility is shot to hell by the show’s skimpy costumes, she’s thrown into close contact with two incredibly attractive men; her dance partner and the show’s sarcastic British judge.
And she soon discovers that love is the ultimate gig.
‘It Girl’ has a fast paced, humorous, edgy plot. Veronica Summers is a strong heroine and the setting has great TV and Media detail. ‘It Girl’ recaptures all the witty dialogue and romance of Wing Girl, Nic Tatano’s first book, which I love. All the characters are vividly portrayed and Veronica’s friends and confidantes; Savannah and Layla are notable. The plot has a couple of unexpected outcomes, which make for an enjoyable read and there is a romantic hero who is not what he seems.
It Girl is a well written Rom Com from a sound knowledge base, which makes it both credible and a page turner.
I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
