I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with Anchored by Brigitte Quinn. Destination: Soak up the sun in Phoenix, AZ.
About The Book:
How do you stay anchored when you’re attracted to your co-anchor? Barbara King’s dream is to become the next Barbara Walters. But for now, she’s anchoring at the fledgling Phoenix news channel, covering car chases and interviewing drunken showbiz has-beens. If she can just out-fox the conniving anchors at her cable channel and move up to its prime-time line-up, she’ll be able to fly the coop and ascend to a real news network. Enter Jack Stone, Barbara’s dynamic, witty - and did she mention sexy? - new co-anchor. Another potential competitor, Jack’s attitude is chilly toward Barbara at first, but it’s not long before a genuine friendship forms. Soon they find themselves finishing each other’s sentences, discovering all they have in common and, ultimately, attempting to ignore how wildly attracted they are to each other. Meanwhile, on the set, under television’s bright lights, they sit just inches apart, their chemistry even apparent to the quirky cast of characters in the gossiping newsroom. Will Barbara give in to her attraction to Jack and betray her husband, Ben, her sweet-souled moral compass? When a life-altering news event propels the Phoenix to the #1 news channel in the nation, will Barbara sell her soul to become a prime time star? How do you stay true to yourself when you’re being seduced by stardom - and your co-star?
I think this book will speak to a lot of women, as we all want to get an edge up in our career. And I am sure there has been attractions and crushes outside of many marriages. This is a great fun read. I enjoyed this debut novel!
