#ARCstravaganza #44: Guilty Pleasure by Kevin Dickson and Jack Ketsoyan

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! I wanted to let you all know that I have opted for adding a link-up at the bottom of each #ARCstravaganza post that I make, starting some weeks ago, where you can post links to your #ARCstravaganza blog, Insta, and Twitter posts for the week! I will provide an example Instagram post in the form as a guide.

For those of you coming across this meme for this first time, it was originally created by Krysti at YA and Wine, and hosted by her, and Sarah at The Clever Reader. Due to personal circumstances, however, they have had to let it go. We were all very sad to see the meme go, but then Krysti asked me if I wanted to take it over, and I said yes!

For those of you unfamiliar with #ARCstravaganza, it’s a meme meant to encourage book bloggers to show off and discuss their ARCs (advanced reader copies)! If this sounds like something for you, please check out the info page about the meme here. Another change is that #ARCstravaganza participants can share their posts on their blogs, Instagram, or Twitter (or all three)! Please just be sure to tag your social media posts with the hashtag, or share a link to your blog post on my blog post for each week, so that we can find it!

In this jaw-dropping sequel to Blind Item, three young Hollywood professionals strive to keep the industry’s most salacious scandals under wraps during awards season.

Nicola faces her biggest challenge as a publicist when she is forced to represent her superstar ex-boyfriend, Seamus, when he returns from rehab. Her boss Gaynor is struggling to keep the PR agency afloat, and Seamus is one client who definitely won’t leave as long as Nicola is around. He’s willing to do anything to win her back―even start a fake relationship for some badly needed good publicity.

Meanwhile, tabloid journalist Billy’s integrity is tested when he’s asked to print the inside scoop on a troubled star. And as for their bestie Kara? Miss Reality Show may have a sex tape on the market.

With everyone’s career and relationships in jeopardy, the three friends must trust each other again―before all their dirty secrets spill.
