GOODREADS PICK FOR THE HOT BOOKS OF SUMMER

IS LOVE REALLY BLIND? THE RAZOR-SHARP ROMANTIC DEBUT TO FILL THE LOVE ISLAND-SHAPED HOLE IN YOUR LIFE THIS SUMMER

OMBEA! Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger with amazing friends, thousands of Insta followers – and a massively broken heart. Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since whenis being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television?

Although Bea has sworn off men altogether, when Main Squeeze ask her to be its next star, she agrees on one condition: under no circumstances will she actually fall in love.

But when the cameras start rolling, Bea finds herself in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Twitter wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale. Bea has to decide whether it might just be worth trusting these men – and herself – for a chance at her own happily ever after.

Reviews

Bea Schumacher is an irresistible heroine, and One to Watch will win you over just as quickly. Its clever skewering of reality TV tropes is balanced by a sweet sincerity and a real belief in true romance. The Bachelor should be so lucky as to land a Bea of its own
Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, bestselling authors of THE ROYAL WE and THE HEIR AFFAIR
A delicious and whip-smart page-turner about the complication of being a complicated woman in the world today
Jo Piazza, bestselling author of CHARLOTTE WALSH LIKES TO WIN
One to Watch is a powerful story about the love we have for ourselves and others. It's a vibrant, tender, stylish, sexy, and outrageously joyful book, and I couldn't bear to put it down for one second
Hannah Orenstein, author of LOVE AT FIRST LIKE
A fast, furious read, one that is brimming with wit but also packs a serious punch. The compelling narrator-Bea Schumacher-won my heart immediately, and Stayman-London's storytelling sizzles
Fiona Davis, nationally bestselling author of THE CHELSEA GIRLS
One to Watch drew me in from the first chapter; this book was relatable, incredibly smart and thoughtful about body image and the way the media treats women, and just plain entertaining. I adored this extraordinary debut and had so much fun reading it!
Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of THE WEDDING DATE and THE PROPOSAL
Stayman-London's charming debut is chatty and fun, brilliantly capturing the highs, lows, and drama of reality TV. . . . This smart, delightful page-turner is a great way for dating show fans to pass the time while waiting for the next season.
