Product Description

Product Description

When you’re an entertainment publicist, there’s no better cure for a broken heart than to Alert the Media...

April and Ryan Monahan are the perfect Hollywood couple. He’s a handsome actor on the rise; she’s a high-powered entertainment publicist. Her job becomes more demanding, however, when Ryan announces he is gay and wants a divorce.

Believing that her persuasive power over the press will give Ryan the publicity he craves, April launches a swift media campaign to make him realize that he can’t live without her. But Ryan has decided that he likes the dating scene and April’s boss insists that she keep him happy as his account is important to the firm.

To her dismay, April is forced to protect her firm’s bottom line by maintaining Ryan’s status as a Hollywood heartthrob while enduring her own heartbreak. As she picks up the pieces of her destroyed marriage, April is determined to compete with Ryan for power, publicity, and true love -- even when her imagination takes her from the board room to the bedroom.

To save her sanity, her corner office, and her two dogs from becoming caught up in an ugly custody battle, April constructs a plan to use her media savvy skills to her advantage.

HASH(0x9d554f9c) out of 5 stars Perfect for the times! June 16 2013
By GB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a refreshing change in genre for me. I truly believe that this book is right on with the times. The star struck, Hollywood loving crowd will LOVE this book. It has a lot of humor and, the main character, April, seems so real. The characters in this book are so funny and down to earth. It's a quick fun read and ends well for all involved. I really enjoyed reading the book and look forward to more!

HASH(0x9d30b00c) out of 5 stars Social Satire March 17 2014
By Nocturnus - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a social satire. That said it is perfectly acceptable to both laugh at the characters while completely hating them for their ignorance :)

I had serious issues with this book until that was pointed out to me. If I had known in the beginning I am sure it would have amused me a lot more instead of making me want to beat the characters into submission... who am I kidding? I'd still want to beat them but I'd be laughing at the same time :)

If you can laugh at people for their stupidity this is the book for you! I really did enjoy it when I knew it was meant to be offensive. You will enjoy it too as long as you read it with the right mindset :)

Mia Fox is an awesome writer and everything she does is very well written. I especially like that all of her characters grow personally through the course of her books! So far my favorite by her is Released (Romani Realms) but I can't wait to read more of her books!

This is a standalone novel.

***This book is suitable for adult readers

HASH(0x9d30b444) out of 5 stars Amazing Must Read July 3 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely love Alert the Media. Mia Fox did amazing job writing this book. I felt like I connect with the Characters. I love April Story. Once I started reading it I couldn't let go of it. It's far the best book I have read this summer. I definitely recommend that everyone should read Alter the Media. Once you start reading Alert the Media you won't want to put it down. I can't wait to read more from Mia Fox.

HASH(0x9d30b804) out of 5 stars Utter silliness ... and not in a good way Dec 25 2013
By Vox Libris - Published on
Format: Paperback
I’ll admit that the subtitle of this book – Hollywood Hotties – gave me pause. I prepared myself for some silly writing.

And it turned out that my Spidey Sense was pretty on target.

April is a fledgling Hollywood publicist married to Ryan Monahan, an up and coming Hollywood Hottie. Unfortunately for April, Ryan tells her that he is gay and wants out of their relationship. Even worse, April’s agency represents Ryan – and they want her to go on pretending that he’s straight.

Hijinks and hilarity ensue.

The thing about this book is that its silliness could be overlooked – applauded, even – if any of the characters were likable. Oh, there is one – a guy involved in an auto accident with April – but that’s it. The friendly neighborhood veterinarian appears to be a good guy, but I wound up not liking him either.

Why doesn’t April just leave Ryan? Well, she likes her job and wants to keep it, even if it makes her feel dirty and unappreciated (which begs the question of what, exactly, she likes about it). What April does to make her clients happy will make you question everything you think is true about celebrities, and that is the one thing about this book that I enjoyed. And it is occasionally funny, in a silly way.

April is vapid and dull, Ryan is a prat, and all the other characters (except Accident Guy) are selfish and mean-spirited.

And there isn’t even hot headboard rockin’.

If you’re going to write a silly book, embrace the silliness. But also make sure your characters are likable. Lacking that, at least have some hot sexy times.

Thanks to NetGalley for the preview

HASH(0x9d30b8e8) out of 5 stars April was annoying June 30 2013
By PRBabe5 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**I received the book in exchange for an honest review.**

First, the book was well written and definitely realistic feeling for how I perceive Hollywood, with some really great parts. However, if I am being completely honest, the main character, April, just did not resonate with me. At times she was humorous and I loved her interactions with her family and best friend. At others, I just could not understand her or relate. Ryan was definitely Hollywood stereotyped and just plain annoying. How she didn't manage to throw her shoes or deadlier items at him is beyond me. And it has nothing to do with being gay, but more his over-inflated opinion / self-centered attitude. Him, I didn't like at all. He wasn't mean to animals or abusive to women or anything, just completely insensitive. Which is why I had the hardest time understanding how she could waste her time and energy trying to get him back. For Christ sake, the man left her because he was gay and already had a male lover? As Jessica said, what don't you get about that and MOVE ON. I did get she needed to keep Ryan due to her it wasn't dealing with him that bothered me so much as it was her inability to get past him and deal with the fallout of their marriage. It was also her inability to be honest with her parents, roping her sister into her problems, not dealing with Bruce, etc. Maybe it is just my inability to deal with celebrity lifestyles. I will say that towards the end, Ryan became more likeable and April finally started to act her age and face reality. The end was actually very good.

To be clear, I did not hate this book, not at all, I just can't say it was great, because it just didn't sit well with me for a good portion of the book. I'm planning on reading the author's YA book next and hope that I'll love that one.
