Something to Talk About by Meryl Wilsner

A showrunner and her assistant give the world something to talk about when they accidentally fuel a ridiculous rumor in this debut romance.

Hollywood powerhouse Jo is photographed making her assistant Emma laugh on the red carpet, and just like that, the tabloids declare them a couple. The so-called scandal couldn't come at a worse time—threatening Emma's promotion and Jo's new movie.

As the gossip spreads, it starts to affect all areas of their lives. Paparazzi are following them outside the office, coworkers are treating them differently, and a “source” is feeding information to the media. But their only comment is “no comment.”

With the launch of Jo’s film project fast approaching, the two women begin to spend even more time together, getting along famously. Emma seems to have a sixth sense for knowing what Jo needs. And Jo, known for being aloof and outwardly cold, opens up to Emma in a way neither of them expects. They begin to realize the rumor might not be so off base after all… but is acting on the spark between them worth fanning the gossip flames?

3.5 stars rounded up

There is a lot to like in this book – I am not going to list what, as you need to read it and find out for yourself, but you can rest assured that there are pesky paparazzi, cute touches, much-loved family get-togethers, and a very well done #metoo scenario. The first and the last of those work really well in contextualising one of the biggest stumbling blocks for this possible pairing. Be ready for a lot of soul searching before these two get anywhere near close, and then some more stumbles along the way.

This is possibly the slowest, slow-burn possibility of a romance that I have ever, ever read. I had faith that it would work out, but really, really needed to be patient. Their friends and family, and let's be frank, the entertainment press seemed to get with the programme months before they could even contemplate it... I didn't mind the buildup, but I did mind not having really very much of the good stuff. I loved that they get to spend time together through their work, but I would have loved a lot more of the early together days.

Well written and whilst we spend a lot of time in each of their heads, they also both have someone that they speak to about their feelings, so it is not quite so frustrating. I now need the next five years please!
