Goodreads:  LIVE FROM MIAMI! 

Viewer Discretion Advised features Charlene "Charley" Thomas - a smart, sassy, highly competitive thirtysomething television news executive producer. Charley's got maxed out credit cards and an office fridge stocked with vodka. Her boss, Jonathan Lefton, a.k.a "The Velvet Ax" is all about ratings, slash-and-burn newscasts - no matter who who gets hurt in the process. Charley is hell-bent on doing whatever it takes to impress Lefton. But will pleasing Lefton mean losing the man she loves? 

Kritters Thoughts:  A behind the scenes look at a news station in Miami, FL through the eyes of the news director, Charley.  Charley is fired from her position in L.A. and decides to move to Miami, close to a friend and under a boss that is very well known in the industry, it seems like the perfect idea.  

From the beginning, the reader is taken inside the news room and behind the cameras to the drama exists between the talent, the producers, the newsies and the public.  You may already know that I love behind the scenes looks and this is one that I have never seen - in a crazy dramatic high stress environment, a news room.  The characters were fantastic, they felt honest and true.  

A great chicky read that was a fun ride!  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Ebook 2013 Challenge: 3 out of 50
