LIVE FROM MIAMI! VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED features Charlene "Charley" Thomas - a smart, sassy, highly competitive thirty something 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? Filled with suspense, romance, and newsroom backbiting, VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED features a cast of ambitious adrenaline junkies.
VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED is "Sex and the City" meets "Broadcast News." It's this summer's hot new beach read!
Laid off from her job in LA, Charley takes a job across the country in Miami, Florida – also home to her BFF. Her new boss is known for being ruthless in the industry but willingly takes on the task and hopes that she can keep him happy (and stay employed!).
We have clashes of personality in the newsroom, divas, and the ins and outs of a fast paced newsroom all meshed together in one heck of a book. Charley jumps in head first hoping for a paycheck, but may end up with more then she expected.
I was really impressed with Cindy’s debut novel Viewer Discretion Advised. At first I was on the fence on whether I would do the tour for this book – I haven’t had much luck with books based around television. Boy was I happy I gave this book a chance!
Charley is tough, she knows what she wants and goes for it. She doesn’t put up with crap from the newsroom divas or anyone else for that matter. She’s spunky, sexy and good at her job. I felt though for Charley, because her job could destroy her love life and is she willing to give up Oz for her job?
This book was action packed and held my attention from the first page right up until the last chapter. It was one of those books that I picked up and finished in an evening because I just couldn’t put it down!
Will I recommend this book? Most definitely! This is the perfect beach or pool side read for anyone who loves a good chick lit/contemporary romance. Will I read more by this author? Yes! I can’t wait to see what Cindy comes up with next!
