“Who do I have to sleep with to get a drink on this plane?”
Oh, how I can relate to that sentence … but more like, “Who do I have to sleep with to get this book (in order to be able to donate it to charity)?” Lets not mention the fact that I’m also hosting a giveaway for this book, too. I can’t even begin to tell ya’ how hard I worked my arse off to get this book for my readers.
Beloved by countless fans (and, ok, sometimes hated) for being a blunt over-sharer who tells it like it is while cracking us up with her twisted humor; three-time New York Times bestselling author Bethenny Frankel now makes her fiction debut with Skinnydipping. Her main character Faith is an aspiring actress fresh outta college, who moves to L.A. determined to have it all—a job on the most popular TV show, a beach house in Malibu, and a gorgeous producer boyfriend. But when reality hits, she finds herself with a gig as a glorified servant, a role that has more to do with T&A than acting, and a dead-end relationship. She hits the road and moves back to New York.
Five years later, Faith has finally found her groove as an entrepreneur and manages to land a spot on a new reality TV show hosted by her idol—the legendary businesswoman and domestic goddess Sybil Hunter. (Hmmmm … sounds familiar, huh?) Diving into the bizarre world of reality TV, Faith’s loud mouth and tell-it-like-it-is style immediately get her in trouble with her fellow contestants—the delusional socialite; the boozy lifestyle coach; the moody headband designer; and her closest friend, the ambitious housewife who eventually betrays her. Even Sybil is not what she appears. As the show comes to a dramatic close, Faith discovers that the man of her dreams may have just walked into her life. Will she choose fame or love? Or can she have it all?
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The perfect guilty pleasure novel, Skinnydipping is the sexy and hilarious story of Faith Brightstone, an aspiring actress just out of college, who moves to LA determined to have it all – a job on the most popular TV show, a beach house in Malibu, and a gorgeous producer boyfriend. But when Hollywood hands her a gig as a glorified servant, a role that has more to do with T&A than acting, and a dead-end relationship, Faith decides she’s had enough of La La Land and moves back to New York with just a suitcase and her dog.
