BLOG TOUR: The Publicist: Climax by Christina George

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Wow.  Can you BELIEVE it's already February?  I mean this  year is flying by so far and while it might not always be kind to me, it has certainly been in the reading department.  Today's blog tour guest is certainly no exception to that statement either.  It comes to us from an author we've grown to know, whose work you simply have to love, with characters, environments, and situations anyone that wears the bookish moniker will adore.  Okay, perhaps I'm can still call yourself bookish even if this trilogy doesn't suit you fancy, but seriously, those numbers have got to be in the minority!  Ladies and gents, courtesy of iRead Book Tours, please welcome today's blog tour guest and book of choice...

The Publicist, Book 3:

About the book...
Kate Mitchell has everything. She's the head of a crazy successful publishing house, engaged to the traffic-stopping sexy Mac Ellis and she's about to sign one of the biggest authors of her career.

And that's when everything falls apart. Everything is perfect…until it’s not.

In a city of 8 million people Kate manages to run into someone she never expected to see again.
Nick is handsome, impossibly kind, every girl’s dream, and Kate’s former fiancé. He’s also the brother of the rising star author she’s trying to sign. Now that Nick’s back in town and has moved on he insists he’s over Kate, but part of him still can’t get past how amazing they were, and his sister won’t let anyone forget how brutally it ended.

When Mac is dealt a life-changing blow, it forces Kate to question every single choice she’s made.

Follow Kate as she embarks on a journey of life and love, navigating through the decisions that will change it all forever. 


Okay, first things first, there ARE some steamy scenes in this one just like the first and second, but not so much so that they overpower the story in the least.  In fact, between the three, THIS one probably has the MOST story and LEAST "scenes" of them all...though don't be mistaken and think that sparks don't fly.  They don't have to get vertical for tensions to mount and knees to tremble.  Now, as I was saying...

I loved the first book and thoroughly enjoyed the second.  We got to know Kate and her sometimes-crazy-sometimes-not batch of authors.  We saw how deeply she fell for Mac and Nick only to have hearts shatter on both sides of the connection.  We cheered her on in good times, hoped for her through the iffy instances, and consoled her in the losses.  The third and final book....DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. 

Kate had finally achieved her dreams:  her own publishing house, a few close friends whom she can depend on, and the love of her life, Nick....I mean Mac!  *gulp*  Trouble in paradise?  Eh, not exactly and yet that's just where we're headed.  I can not elaborate too much because it will spoil the twists and turns as well as the grand finale, and trust'd find a way to get me back for ruining the experience.  Suffice it to say that it stays true to the characters in every way and leaves no stone unturned when the final curtain falls. 

Though we get to visit with the characters we've come to call "friend", along the way, we are introduced to a few new faces that definitely leave their mark.  Let's see there's Nick's sister, Mac's ex-wife, oh and we can't forget to mention Dr. Ruth Ann!  One holds a grudge, the other has a life changing experience not planned on, and the third, well, we'll just say she's DEFINITELY MEMORABLE.  *hehe* The good news is that they all play a role in Kate's finding her happily ever after, but I'm afraid that's also the bad news.  *dun dun dunnnn*  You'll understand more when you read the story.

In conclusion, I'm sorry to have turned the final page on this trilogy because frankly, I'm going to miss the drama combined with bookish rapture I came to love....but that IS the beauty of reading.  I can go back and visit any time I want.  ^_^   The characters are memorable, the story titillating, and the exposure to all things BOOKISH is fabulous (I totally felt like I got to go to BEA...vicariously of course).  Recommended for Women's Fiction, Chick Lit, and Contemporary Romance fans of adult ages (again with the steaminess).  It truly is a great read that not only gives you the inside scoop on an industry we love, but the love, lust, and longing for the happy ending we each deserve.  Oh and one final note, I've decided once and for all.  I'm...



About the author...

I’ve worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn’t. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, hell it’s more fun to guess, right? I continue to work in publicity and help authors because at the end of the day I do love books, I love publishing, and I love authors. I hope you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Have fun reading Kate’s posts!

I'm so flattered and just gushing --- you've made my day. THANK YOU - wow this book was so hard to write. I'm really grateful. I wasn't kidding about the Team Nick bag. Oh and guess what - I'm writing a book about Mac because we have a lot of Team Mac peeps out there, too. Thank you again!
