Goodreads:  Claire Malone didn t mean for this to happen when she moved to New York. She just wanted to live the city life and gain experience in television writing, her dream career. It s not like she meant to reciprocate when her married boss, Sean Vared, sent her flirty e-mails. And you can t blame her for coming into the office on the weekend when Sean told her he was going to be there . . . alone. She didn t mean to sleep with him but hey, she wanted to experience the city life, so no big deal, right? Wrong. By the time Claire wakes up on her 25th birthday, she s very much in love with Sean. At work, she struggles to hold it together when he passes her desk the very desk that they used to make love on. Soon Sean has turned his affection to the show s starring actress, and Claire is devastated. Can she break away from Sean without ruining her barely started career? Will someone find out what happened? Will she ever grow up and stop making stupid mistakes? 

Kritters Thoughts:  A coming of age where a young woman is out of college and trying to find her path in relationships and her career.  Claire is turning 25 and that is the age where "adulting" begins and you can see the full impact of the decisions you make both personally and professionally - the quarter life crisis!  

I enjoyed Claire as a character - she had flaws, but wasn't whining and making the same mistakes over and over again, she was learning from the mistakes and trying to correct herself.  

Behind the scenes will always be one of my favorite kind of stories.  Claire takes us behind the scenes of tv, but more specifically writing for tv and uniquely in New York City.  Although I have read quite a few of these kind of stories, the uniqueness of location and being in the writers room was so fun.  

I definitely liked this one, there isn't anything that blew me away, but is one of those purely entertaining reads.

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