“Hollywood powerhouse Jo is photographed making her assistant Emma laugh on the red carpet, and just like that, the tabloids declare them a couple. The so-called scandal couldn’t come at a worse time—threatening Emma’s promotion and Jo’s new movie.

As the gossip spreads, it starts to affect all areas of their lives. Paparazzi are following them outside the office, coworkers are treating them differently, and a “source” is feeding information to the media. But their only comment is “no comment”.
_ _
With the launch of Jo’s film project fast approaching, the two women begin to spend even more time together, getting along famously. Emma seems to have a sixth sense for knowing what Jo needs. And Jo, known for being aloof and outwardly cold, opens up to Emma in a way neither of them expects. They begin to realize the rumor might not be so off base after all…but is acting on the spark between them worth fanning the gossip flames?” – Amazon

Kim’s Review

The cover for Something to Talk About by Meryl Wilsner drew me in, and after reading the synopsis, it sounded like the perfect Beach Read to me. And it was!

I really enjoyed getting a peek into the behind the scenes on a television show and also the life of someone famous. And, although I’m not a fashionista, I enjoyed reading about the fancy clothes and events.

The romance itself was super sweet and started off perfectly for me. There was the right amount of tension when it came to Emma first figuring out that she does have feelings for Jo and then the awkwardness that comes once she realizes it. The middle got a bit long for me in regards to if they will be getting together, but Wilsner added enough side stories and other characters that were really well developed, that it was still enjoyable.

And I thought it was wonderful that Wilsner represented lesbians, bisexuals, Chinese-Americans, and Jewish people and cultures. The #metoo movement and the predatory actions of Hollywood are also looked at too. Adding even more layers to Something to Talk About.

If you’re looking for lots of hot lesbian sex scenes, you might be disappointed since you don’t get one until almost the very end. But if you’re looking for a sweet romance, then this book would be perfect.
