Summer Heacock - Crashing the A List

She's doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons.

After four months of unemployment, former book editor Clara Montgomery is officially stuck--stuck sleeping on her little brother's ugly couch in Queens, stuck scrolling through job listings in search of a new editorial position...and just desperate enough to take on a temporary gig clearing out abandoned storage units. If nothing else, she's determined to keep her rapidly dwindling savings account intact.

Unfortunately, she is in no way prepared for stumbling upon dead snakes or dealing with glass jars that she's convinced are full of pickled eyeballs. And why does everything seem to smell like beets?

Then Clara comes across a unit that was once owned by an escort service and finds the brothel "résumé" of a younger Caspian Tiddleswich, an astonishingly famous British actor. She has no intention of cashing in on her discovery, but her awkward attempts to reassure Caspian that his secret is safe go awry. Now Caspian is convinced that Clara is a blackmailer, the tabloids have her pegged as Caspian's newest girlfriend...and Clara begins to find the A-lister's charms more irresistible than she expected.

"Readers who love hilarious, bawdy humor with a heaping dose of swoon will adore Summer Heacock's special debut!" -Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider

"Chock-full of hysterical one-liners and strings of profanity, the novel will make readers want to slap the protagonist upside the head with a glitter brush in order for her to come to her senses. A delicious summer treat with just enough sass, sex, and edible glitter." -Library Journal

"Funny, fast, smart-as-heck and absolutely delicious. I devoured it." -Gemma Burgess, author of the Brooklyn Girls series

"Undoubtedly memorable, hilariously quirky and surprisingly relatable, this novel digs deep into the complexities of intimate relationships and how easily the lines between sex and love can blur. Get lucky by making this one-of-a-kind novel part of your summer reading list!" -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!

"Full of voice and a cast of characters that are side-splitting funny. Between the shenanigans and drool-worthy cupcake descriptions is a modern-day exploration of one woman's quest for happily ever after." -Karma Brown, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Choices We Make
