Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're jumping back into a series we thought had drawn to a conclusion...but SURPRISE! The author has graced us with another installment. *jumps around like a true fan girl* The series is The Publicist....the author is Christina George. Ring any bells? It should because I've thoroughly enjoyed (and shared!) the series before and I'm about to do it again. Ready or not, here comes today's ebook of choice...
The Publicist, Book 4
About the book...
Mac Ellis is never down for long but this time is proving to be a little more challenging. It’s been almost two years since he and Kate split up and Mac’s still wrestling with the guilt of breaking her heart.
Mac Ellis is a legend both in and out of the bedroom and when an amazing opportunity comes his way to head up a publishing company, Mac grabs it and restarts his career. As luck would have it, he and Kate wind up vying for the same title: A book that promises to be the biggest book of the year, maybe of a career.
Smart, sexy, and beautiful Sydney Montgomery is a top CIA operative. Some at the agency call her a savant, but the world, if they knew, would call her Wonder Women, because she brought down what could have been one of the biggest terrorist threats the country would have ever seen. Now Sydney is telling her story and Mac wants to publish her book, but Sydney has a secret and when Mac meets her, he realizes she is not at all what he expected.
Because love the second time around is always sweeter...
What's tall, dark, and handsome all over?
MacDermott Ellis...and ladies, he's BACK!
For anyone that has had the esteemed pleasure of reading The Publicist series (all three titles of which I've reviewed right here on the site...SQUEE!), you know Mac's track record. Book one, dreamboat! Book two, devilish dreamboat! Book three, naughty hottie that went way way WAY too far. Admittedly, I was Team Mac at the start but quickly switched over to Team Nick (*sigh*) and lived a happy live vicariously thereafter...BUT, even after all was said and done in The Climax, Part 2, there was always a part of me that wondered, what was in store for dear old misguided Mac. He wasn't a bad guy at heart but he let his heart choose badly (no, Kate wasn't a bad choice...you KNOW what I mean!). Did that mean he wasn't deserving of love in his own time? Absolutely....not. Which brings us to today...
Author Christina George is very in tune with her fans, so much so that she invites you to email her directly at the end of every book to share thoughts, comments, questions, or whatever else might have crossed your mind. She heard the masses and brought us something to satisfy our curiosity quite nicely. *raises eyebrows* Mac has learned the lessons of love the hard way and while he's not taking himself off the market permanently, he isn't actively seeking another conquest...and then there was Wonder Woman. No, we're not talking about the brunette with the red, white, and blue ensemble (gold power cuffs included); we're talking about a CIA operative that's deadly...in more ways than one. From their first meeting, sparks fly but both have enough strength in reserve to let everything flow beneath the surface, undetectable to the other; well, at least until the dams of recognition set free a past that you won't see coming.
It's hot and spicy while still showing us the sweeter side of Mac...not that we didn't know it was there, but it's nice to see him let his guard down sometimes and not be fully in control of everything. Seeing how it's shorter than the other installments, I won't ramble on too long for fear of spoiling all the juicy fun within but suffice it to say, their hearts run the gauntlet of love like the champions they are. Is there a happily ever after in store for them? I'll let you discover that one on your own but keep an eye out for familiar faces along the way...including some face time with our dear now-married-with-children Kate! Dun dun dunnnnn.....
Recommended read for adult readers that are already fans of the series as well as Contemporary Romance fans the world over. Oh and a quick side note, the author mentions a story of Vivienne next go round! (Can we say instant wish list addition?)
About author Christina George...
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.
