Business or Pleasure

The fun, flirty and steamy new rom com from the author of The Ex Talk

Steamy, flirty and utterly hilarious . . . the blistering new rom-com from Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk and Weather Girl

When Chandler Cohen accepts her next ghostwriting gig penning a memoir for cult actor Finnegan Walsh, it should be a dream job.

However, Chandler knows him best as something else: her worst-ever one-night stand . . . She's determined to keep things professional. But when she finally admits to Finn that their night together wasn't as mind-blowing as he thought, he's determined to make amends.

So, they strike a deal. During the day, they'll work on the book, and at night, she'll school him in the art of satisfaction. Soon the line between business and pleasure starts to blur.

Can Chandler and Finn have both, or will they have to choose?
