Contemporary Romance
Trigger Warnings: Gaslighting, Anxiety, Depression
Summary: Since a crushing breakup three years ago, Nina Rice has written romance, friends, her dreams of scriptwriting for TV, and even LA proper out of her life. Instead, she’s safely out in the suburbs in her aunt’s condo working her talent agency job from home, managing celebrity email accounts, and certain that’s plenty of writing—and plot—for her life. But a surprise meeting called by Ari Fox, a young actress on everyone’s radar, stirs up all kinds of feelings Nina thought she’d deleted for good . . .

Ari is sexy, out and proud, and a serious control freak, according to Nina’s boss. She has her own ideas about how Nina should handle her emails—and about getting to know her ghostwriter. When she tells Nina she should be writing again, Nina suddenly finds it less scary to revisit her abandoned life than seriously consider that Ari is flirting with her. Between reconnecting with her old crew and working on a new script, a relationship with a movie star seems like something she’ll definitely mess up—but what could be more worth the risk?

Amy Spalding’s For Her Consideration is full of heat and heart as Nina learns that her story just might include the kind of love that lasts.

My Thoughts:

At one point, with about 100 or so pages left in this book I texted one of my bff’s that this book was giving me fucking anxiety and I was not kidding. I couldn’t put this down at all, because it would’ve made me ending it on a cliffhanger.

Sleeping at a reasonable time? Nah. Not happening.

How much do I love these characters? More than mint chocolate chip ice cream, and if you know me, you know that’s a whole helluva lot.

Ari Fox is my type, I’ve had a type for a long time and she is it. I don’t know why, but it made me love this book from the moment she appeared on the page.

I was admittedly nervous about Nina Rice when I first started to read, worried for her, worried if she would be a reliable narrator or not (spoiler alert: she both is and isn’t).

And Lorna?! Oh my god, everyone should have an aunt like Lorna. She is a class act and often unintentionally hilarious.

This book was a slow burn, which normally I have a problem with, but let me tell you it was captivating and fascinating. I loved watching the friendships build, and get rebuilt until there was an extremely satisfying ending.

Seeking: My own Ari Fox. You don’t have to be famous though.
